So… this happened…
I played the Ugly Kid Joe version of Cat’s in the Cradle in my Tue/Thu 2367 class yesterday and then spoke about the Cat Stevens version (um… does not exist, apparently). When I misspoke, a student (H.M.) called me out on it in class (politely, mind you) and told me that it was Harry Chapin’s song. He was kind enough to follow up with an email per my request, so I wouldn’t forget to do some searching. I appreciated his information.
There are many reasons why this mistake was made by me, though that matters little. I have an old cassette tape recording that was attributed to Cat Stevens (apparently incorrectly) and when I searched online, I found ample places where his face overlaid that music in videos. Now I know that it is a common mistake. A mistake… though… and I wanted to correct it HERE rather than just in that one HDFS 2367 course where H.M. sits. I may have shared this info before in error and want to be sure to get that out there. Sure, it’s a little mistake, but it was bad information and I don’t appreciate receiving bad info and don’t like disseminating it either.
Cat Stevens IS the artist that sang “Father and Son” so that part was true, and he DID change his name to Yusuf Islam… ding… another truth. But the “cat’s in the cradle” bit… clearly wroooooong.
So there you have it.
And now, for a musical interlude…

This is one of those warm and fuzzy moments from yours truly. It has nothing to do with our classes – except perhaps – that it reminds us that we need one another.
Enjoy this fantastic fanciful collaboration of old and new artists (covering the Beach Boy’s 1966 classic – released the year before your instructor was born)
As a community educator, C.J. spreads a sex-positive message on-the-clock and off. She will be on the Ohio State University’s Main Campus this semester to discuss sex toys and their care. After sharing her experiences working at an adult toy store, she’ll answer questions about the types of merchandise offered at stores like GCJ: ( The Garden , The Chamber, and The Joint).
C.J. will be speaking in my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Campbell Hall, Classroom #143) from 11:10 am to 12:30 pm on September 25th. If you are in another instructor’s 5440 or you’ve taken it with me previously? YES, you may come. Students are welcome to bring guests (provided the individuals are over 18 years of age, respectful, and open minded). Please note: This is a full session which means that extra guests will be sitting on the floor or standing. Plan accordingly.
C.J. is willing to stay after class to talk further with students. She wishes to remind students that they are eligible for a 10% student discount at her stores by showing their Student I.D. Cards.

Summertime may be in our rearview mirror, but today felt far too summery to be inside. My HDFS 2367 class trekked outside to the bank above Mirror Lake . While we read (and talked) about Arlie Hochschild‘s book – The Second Shift – we enjoyed some vitamin D courtesy of Mother Nature.
