Bobby Darin was born Walden Robert Cassotto and in addition to having a Number One smash with his interpretation of “Mack The Knife” he also wrote such hits as “Splish Splash”, “Dream Lover”, “That’s The Way Love Is” and, the namesake of this blog, “As Long As I’m Singing”.
Bobby Darin died in 1973 at the age of 37, and he is greatly missed by fans and music enthusiasts alike.
i am not Bobby Darin.
4/29/13 – This is now:
My name is Troy, though I’ve found that good friends tend to call me simply “t” instead. Well, I suppose in their mind, the “t” is capitalized, but I digress…
I’m a father of three beautiful, smart and independent children (biased be damned, parenting is the one thing I KNOW I do right), and a man much farther along in my journey than I, or my wardrobe, would normally care to admit. I also fancy myself a writer in that I can place words side by side, in an order that results in their resembling coherent thoughts, when being read back.
Although appreciated, this is an award-free blog, as your reading along is award enough.
I will sometimes speak of things personal, but for the most part this house will now contain only pieces of my imagination. Flash fiction, prompt responses, grandiose novel ideas – ones that will surely simply trail off after a spell without ever actually ending – and other such meanderings will inhabit this space. Well that, and the occasional mental sidetrack discussing any given number of non-essential tidbits regarding musical performers, may also appear from time to time. Thanks for stopping by, and I do hope you enjoy your time here.
Oh, in case you couldn’t tell, I’m also quite fond of using the comma. Period.
