    Take a Listen to This

    This is a cover my good friend Agata just did.  I have mentioned her here before. Agata is 22 and has an incredible voice, and in my opinion incredible talent.  I am hardly objective about her as I know her well and I love her singing, but holy shit, I think she nailed this. She writes her own...

    Our Home Town Talent Took 2nd Place in the Junior Eurovison Contest!

    I don't know how much coverage it gets in the US, but the Eurovision song contest and the Junior Eurovision (for kids up to age 14) are a very big thing over here.  The Swedish entry in the 1974 Eurovision was ABBA and they became an international hit as a result. Sara James, born to a Nigerian...

    Look Out California

    This is not a political post so don't tell me to take it to PA. We all know the courts, especially the Supreme Court of the US are apolitical.  This is a news story. California Governor Says He’ll Use Texas Abortion Law As Model For Gun Control The article sates that the a gun rights group...

    On Death and Dying

    I just found out this morning that one of my lifelong best friends died yesterday.  I met Don 54 years ago when I went into 7th grade.  Like me, Don was a bit 'different' and as water seeks sea level, outsiders find each other.  Don and I both served in the Army, we had so many wild and crazy...

    Too Good to Get Buried in the Guitar Solo Thread

    This is amazing and Rick Beato is amazing. He accurately recreated the music from the solo section of Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven (because they are very strict about the use of their recordings).  Then he laid down a solo as he imagined Peter Frampton might play it.  A friend of his did...

    Needless to say everybody has their own opinion on this subject.  I like most of his selections except I would switch numbers 1 and 2 around. If you have never watched this guy, he's good.  His series "What Makes This Song Great" is an excellent breakdown of the song with detailed explanations...

    This is Truly Frightening

    This is the logical and inevitable product of the blind worship of free markets, which we know are not free at all, and the relentless pursuit of profits and wealth.  Go long on water is my advice.   Just more evidence that the human race often sucks. Is it possible that the very air we breath...

    Holy shit, Jesus Christ Superstar!

    If you love music, stage shows, Jesus Christ Superstar, or just want to watch an incredible performance, then this is a must see.  I can't think of enough nor sufficient superlatives for this incredible reimagining of a classic that was first performed 50 years ago.   Somehow the production...

    If Anybody Out There is Bored...

    In the last year my physical condition has gotten to the point where I can't really do much of anything short of existing.  I can walk, but only for a short distance and then I have to rest and anything beyond a hundred yards just isn't possible, no matter how long I rest.  Simple tasks leave me...

    K. T. Oslin DTS

    I'm not much of a country music fan but I do like a few female country artists.  Besides Roseanne Cash, I have always liked K. T. Oslin.  She was 78 and died from complications from Parkinson's disease.  RIP K. T.  The first song is my favorite, about a couple at that point in their marriage...

    Garden Renovation

    We have a friend/nearby neighbor, Marta, that studied art in university and also has grown up around plants and gardens.  Since we moved into our house 11 years ago, I have wanted a small Japanese garden.  My plan was to take a small triangle in the back corner of the yard for this purpose. ...
