Avatar 3:24pm still b/p:

The documentary of that full Aretha performaance just came out after being shelved for years in a dispute with her, and because separately recorded sound wasn't in sync. Not sure why that factor would be so infernally difficult that it would hold up finishing the thing. Tedious and tough, maybe, but nearly impossible...? ..from two nights of performance?

This was my childhood transistor radio. For those of you in the UK of a certain vintage you’ll agree that it looks like Zippy from Rainbow. A few years ago I saw one for sale in Paul Smith Covent Garden for silly money https://goo.gl/images/Pu6R6c

Langley School! Their version of "Calling Occupants..." gives me chills, in a way that neither the Carpenters version nor the Klaatu version does. Something about that song coming from a bunch of anonymous Canadian school children makes it real for me.

Wish modern pop songs had more of this positive energy.
  3:52pm Daybreak, the Human:

Lean on Me is one of the 2 songs that I did my best to sing to my son, 2 years ago when he was 3, to help him sleep. The other is Stand by Me. Neither is super is or exactly in my range but they are peaceful and positive and a 3 year old never questions your singing abilities if you are singing it from your heart.

Thanks for the memory!

  4:04pm Jocelyn:

Cheri, I don't think any gifts are bad or worse. Sure there's a lot of "What will I do with this?" But bad? No. When someone gives, that in itself is a gift. We might not ever wear that sweater that doesn't suit our style or devour that fruitcake but it was all given with good intent so that is a good thing.

NotARealDoctor, I can't remember exactly how old I was but I'm guessing maybe 8 or 9. An elderly neighbour had gifted crayons and colouring books to me. I made a face and was like, Those are for babies! My parents weren't having that attitude. It was corrected quickly. A gift, liked, wanted or not is a great thing. No such thing as bad gifts.

I was at the Brooklyn Academy of Music a few months ago. There was a show booked as an Alice Coltrane tribute. It was music such as this but not as good. After John Coltrane’s death Alice funded a commune in California. It was multi-spiritual but they did lots of chants like this. The stage was filled with (old(er)?alumni, a synth, stand up bass and drum kit. They chanted these repetitive Om Rama Rama om om chants ad nauseam all night. The hall was half empty about 45 minutes into it. A bore. But also silly.

Jake, three things about CBD and coffee - 1) it appears to be a great way to get stimulation without the aggro effects of coffee alone plus some extra anti-oxidants 2) a little cbd oil goes a long way 3) a recent study of the diamond cbd brand reveals a bunch of crap in it, including synthetic thc (i.e. spice), even though they say 100% cbd oil. sooo, if you go this route, make sure to get a trusted pure organic cbd oil. hth.

The Cecil Taylor show at the Library Of Congress a couple of decades ago cleared out the non-believers - but it was an awesome transcendent experience that I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

If you want to see middle aged men crying with their children go to see a revival showing of the classic “King Kong.” It’s stunning to talk to people in the line for a revival showing of “King Kong.” That film is really a big part of some people’s lives in ways you can’t imagine.

And when you hear people genuinely sobbing at the end when *spoiler* King Kong dies? Wow.

@andrewb: As a child in summer day camp at the time of the 1976 film, a Charles Grodin performance was meaningless to me.

That said, as an adult I like watching that dog movie “Beethoven” just to see Charles Grodin get increasingly pissed off at a cute dog.
