"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

I have been a music director for 40 years, and I thought I had heard it all. I was wrong! So very wrong!

Say what you will, but at least he isn’t trying to accompany himself on the accordion.




Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Hey now! That Sonseed video really gets the feet to stompin'.

I laughed until the tears were rolling. Combination of the dude wailing on the guitar like he's in an AC/DC video, and the creepy dude with the mustache.

You might want to look up Florence Foster Jenkins.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGT61_KbXms
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ifu1Q-vGOwQ

People actually bought tickets to hear her sing at Carnegie Hall! She was a rich socialite and I think she rented the hall with her own money so she could perform.

From Wikipedia:
quote:
Florence Foster Jenkins (born Narcissa Florence Foster; July 19, 1868 – November 26, 1944) was an American socialite and amateur soprano who was known and mocked for her flamboyant performance costumes and notably poor singing ability. The historian Stephen Pile ranked her "the world's worst opera singer ... No one, before or since, has succeeded in liberating themselves quite so completely from the shackles of musical notation."[1]

Despite (or perhaps because of) her technical incompetence, she became a prominent musical cult figure in New York City during the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Cole Porter, Gian Carlo Menotti, Lily Pons, Sir Thomas Beecham, and other celebrities were fans.[2][3] Enrico Caruso is said to have "regarded her with affection and respect".[4] The poet William Meredith wrote that what Jenkins provided "... was never exactly an aesthetic experience, or only to the degree that an early Christian among the lions provided aesthetic experience; it was chiefly immolatory, and Madame Jenkins was always eaten, in the end."[5]

I have been told by a recording engineer friend of mine that many of the modern "pop stars" in music are terrible singers, their fame based first on looks and then doctored music. At least David Cassidy had to sing well. This short video gives a glimpse of how modern vocal music is created.

Listening to those singers is like looking at the sun. Just get a sense of it then look away and hope there's no permanent damage...



I'm sorry, I'm thinking about the cats again...
