    Can't even pretend I haven't sung along with it in the last month or so. It's a banger with staying power.

    My favorite Geico commercial is the one with the band Europe. “IT’S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!!!”

    RIP, Eddie.
    And it's going to be how do we think government should work and who do we think government should work for?

    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    The one that hit me today was Jessye Norman:

    https://www.theguardian.com/music/20...ra-star-grammy

    If you've never listened to her before, I highly recommend checking out her many recordings.

    I'm a sucker for a rich voiced soprano, and she did some wonderful recordings of Maher, Strauss, and Wagner..




    NYT has included a handy spotify playlist and youtube links of some moments from her greatest recordings which is worth diving into also. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/01/a...formances.html

    Indeed a loss. The first I heard her was singing La Marseillaise.

    Apparently, he was chairing committee meetings by remote, from his hospice bed.

    He fought like hell for progressive ideals while remaining friendly with both sides. Both Ds and Rs are heartbroken today.

    We need more people like him.
    And it's going to be how do we think government should work and who do we think government should work for?
