The You Gottas

Several years ago when I was taking guitar/bass lessons I remember talking to my teacher about how recording artists after time wind up writing the “you gottas”. He was like what do you mean. I said you know like “you got to get up in the morning and go to work, you got to pay your dues, you got to put up with the boss.” I figured that when an artist gets older they get out of touch with average people lives and try to imagine what is like to be average and want to write a song that connects with them. Listening to Jeff Lyne today one of the songs starts off “You got to learn how to cry before you learn how to fall, you got to turn from the darkness..” The “You gottas” is a music artist jumping the shark.

I wrote javascript and css to take the list and generate div tags with a class that would change size when hover and then pass the last name to a function. The function then does an AJAX call to the server to retrieve a collection of household detail with the selected last name. I populate the collection and return a JSON object with the details including the members object.


I watched another lecture Great Courses- Our Night Sky. This one covered the fall sky.
I continued with Redshirts by John Scalzi.
