Rounding at (Tapioca) Tundra Medicine


I suppose I should explain the connection between my post photo and my subject.

My subject is Grand Rounds, this week hosted by The Tundra PA at Tundra Medicine Dreams.

Our Tundra PA did a beautiful job, with forty-seven, count ’em…forty seven posts from the medical blogosphere. We were rather prolific this week!

I’m proud, and surprised (!) to find the Emergiblog entry in the “Editor’s Top Five” of the week.

My daughter would have called the post a “timed write”.

Assignment: one post for Grand Rounds and you have thirty minutes before the deadline!

Now the connection:

Michael Nesmith wrote a song called “Tapioca Tundra” that is found on this particular Monkees album.

So every time I read “Tundra Medicine Dreams” this song comes into my head, even though it has nothing to do with the Alaskan tundra.

I know, I checked the lyrics.

Why yes, I am a nerd, thank you.

I’ll spare you all the opinion that the Monkees are the most underrated group.

…that Micky Dolenz has one of the most recognizable voices in rock history,

…that Michael Nesmith has the most amazing gift of lyricism,

…that Peter Tork had to be the world’s greatest comedian to pull off his “dummy” role in the show and,

…that Davy is, well cute!

Oh, and this is one of those cases where I failed to link to a blog that I read rather regularly.

I will now remedy that situation and you can find “Tundra Medicine Dreams” under the “Medical Blogger of Interest” section.

And people say I monkee around……..
