THEN & NOW THURSDAYS–Shelby Daniels Week

Shelby here, again. Getting sick of me yet? Only a couple more days if you are. And I’m havin’ fun with this so hopefully you are too.

So, Lynn tells me that Thursdays is something called, “Then and Now Thursdays.” Ok, I’m only nineteen years old, so the Then part would put me at, like, birth, so I’ll just try and do something interesting…

I know it’s not Monday, but I have to talk about music here. I’m really into it.


cd-picture2CDs came out before I was even born, right? Like, 1982 or something. They were sleek and looked way cool. You just slid them into your portable CD carrier and you were set!

Loved it.

8tracks18-tracks, my mom told me about those. They were, like, from the 60s or something. They were clunky-lookin’, huh?
Can we say, “Archaeic?” Ok, CDs are still used a little but….
ipodIt’s I-Pod, all the way.

These first came out when I was, like, eleven or so.

This is about the only way to go these days. I remember the first song I put on my I-Pod. It was, Get the Party Started, by Pink. Yeah, my mom wasn’t so happy.

But now, it’s mostly Christian Rock. I’ve got a few songs in mind that I’d play on a soundtrack for the Light of Truth movies that’ll surely come.

Lynn laughed until she cried when I told her about movies and soundtracks for the book. She’s, like, “Hey, God’s plan, not ours. The book may never even hit the shelves. You just never know what’s up God’s sleeve.”

Typical thing she’d say.


What’d you grow up with? 8-track? CD? I-pod? Radio only?
