Cattle call? pas d'tout, Moroccan roll

    Kinda remind me of 60's bands before they learned performance, or late folk era - something very earnest.

    Petula Clark's Endless Career

    Still remember one holiday to Texas and the beach in '65, where Downtown was everywhere.
    And a summer 1967 at the pool with the somehow stirring "Don't Sleep in the Subway Darling"
    And then Petula Clark's tribute on some Bob Hope special '72 singing Penny Lane/Eleanor Rigby feeling a bit dated

    Tears in the Rain - RIP Rutger

    Realized I'd seen Hauer in 2 movies long ago, Turkish Delight & Spetters from his Dutch movie days.
    But his brilliant presence in Blade Runner remains unforgettable, including the mesmerizing final soliloquy he penned, knowing he needed something special, something more - the replicant with a soul, with vigor, with yearning.

    Cammock: why women aren't artists?

    An alternative path to creativity - with much less room for acknowledgment sans self-primotion.

    Summer of Love: Charles Colson revisited

    by Barrett Brown no less.

    Feel our loss of innocence - "I'd run over my Grandma for Christ" was once a thing - now it's "Christ should run over Grandma for Trump". I guess in the end it's not much difference, but it feels like a lifetime...

    Gang Bang: Love to Love Ya

    *Courtney* Love, of course, but everyone gets their licks - my facorite was Ladies of the Canyon, or was it the Fisher Queen? Man feel those names drop...

    Worth re-reading in these times, however long karma takes to come due. (Kundera's Unbearable Lightness of Being makes a similar point in longer form)
