My music playlist for today (August 16, 2012 edition)

I guess you could say I have quite a few “flower children” on my Facebook friends list, and that’s cool.  I find myself on the same wavelength with a large percentage of them.

If it weren’t for the fact that I have so many “flower children” on my friends list, I might have totally spaced the fact that we’re in the midst of the 43rd anniversary of the Woodstock festival, during which 400,000 people descended on Max Yasgur’s farm near White Lake, New York.

How does one forget the anniversary of an event that changed the history of popular music, and — despite the protests of local residents including signs that said “Buy No Milk. Stop Max’s Hippy Music Festival” — prompted Max himself to speak so highly of his multitude of “guests?”

That’s where I get by with a little help from my friends.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October that year. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up on a daily basis over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that put us back into the "middle class." But then that job went away, and I took a job as a transit bus driver that put us more in a lower income bracket. Now, I want to blog again on a more regular basis to tell of the kinds of struggles people like us go through as we work toward something better. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
