Music Monday: A Night at the Symphony

Published on February 23, 2015 By bmagnus

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 […]

Bonus Music: Funky!

Published on January 28, 2015 By bmagnus

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

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 […]

Some years ago, I read a book called the Inner Game of Music. In a manner of speaking, it was about getting out of your own way.

I bet you were wondering how I was going to work habits in, weren’t you? So, let’s talk about driver safety. Did you know that there are a lot of people out there who still don’t wear seat belts?? If you’re one of them, I know a habit you should be working on. Driving while […]

Music Monday: Top Ten

Published on December 22, 2014 By bmagnus

In Closing: Pardon me; the Music Man; no new ideas; dangerous jobs; a pretty cool boat; a family affair; on hacking; ride-bys; affordable; I thought this would happen; and weird museums.

Music Monday: Weezer

Published on December 15, 2014 By bmagnus

In Closing: Reading about the people justifying torture can seem like they are torturing the truth; a few police brutality and racism items; common sense may not be common; TPP; she can’t be trusted to make a decision regarding having a baby, but she can somehow be trusted with a baby. Oh, and one last […]

Music Monday: Santa’s been working out.

Some of my readers like a little eye candy. Drop the Bass, Jesus:

The truth is, None of Us Can Breathe

So, please mark December 5, 2014 in your calendars. It is the day that I agreed with George W. Bush, when he said the Eric Garner grand jury results were “hard to understand.” Sure, we look at the video and say “how the heck can a cop get away with choking out a man on a […]

Music Monday: Ode to the North

Here’s Michael Bublé, proving that he’s from Canada, eh?
