Music Monday: It’s still over a year from now….

Posted by on March 23, 2015 at 7:11 pm

So Scott Pelley pointed out that it’s “only” 594 days until the 2016 elections and what were candidates waiting for. Um, what? So anyway I have this survey from the Democrats about Hillary’s potential presidential bid. I notice there’s not an option for “No, I don’t think she should run at all!” And no, I […]

In Closing: Oops; she’s at least partly right; poverty and wages; TLDR veggies are good for you; TPP.

Music Monday: Retrogression

Posted by on March 2, 2015 at 10:15 pm

When I was teaching music, I was always hesitant to deduct points for certain chord progressions because I knew perfectly well those kids had this somewhere in the back of their skulls. Oh, and I’m still grooving on Gotham. I got nothin else but a moment of Zen Pencils.

Music Monday: A Night at the Symphony

Posted by on February 23, 2015 at 7:16 pm

This is probably my favorite full symphony composition of all time. And that’s saying something from a lady who loves her some Wolfgang Amadeus (yeah yeah and props to Ludwig Van). In Closing: some more NSA and privacy follies; student loans; crude; illustration of double standard; embarrassing coincidence; lost Sherlock Holmes story; malls have always been […]

Music Monday: Kick Against the Pricks

In closing: enigma; happily ever after; one size fits all; do I still have the right to party?; a few choice words on inequality and trade agreements and related issues; please add “or whatever”.

Music Monday: In which I misuse Tom Petty

And for those who are saying “What’s the big deal? Measles are just a rash!” Roald Dahl has some words for you. Here’s one of the better summaries. Let me briefly […]

Bonus Music: Funky!

More here. I particularly like the fact that this wasn’t just a production of the dance team and assorted Pretty People. Yeah, even a Fort Worth girl can appreciate what they did in Dallas. In Closing: Yay, we’re last; scarfgate debunked; not a fan of Obamacare, but I did come out ahead; all those poor […]

Music Monday: Come Out

Posted by on January 19, 2015 at 1:45 am

Here’s a long overdue habit for some people: see others as human beings rather than members of a group of people. Or as one guy put it, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but […]
