Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Quote

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

mentioned elsewhere we were gonna check out the met's tannhäuser offering. occurred to us tannhäuser, in an extreme small portion, may be one o' the better known (to american audiences) wagner operas... albeit with liberties taken.  

HA! Good Fun!

I don't necessarily love her music, but I do really like her voice. I'm in the process of learning to like her music as well.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

so we heard a commercial which included renegade by styx

we never owned a styx album, but one o' our first 8-tracks were k-tel's the rock album (1980). 

hearing renegade made us recall how much we enjoyed

fantastic blues guitar. 

gonna recreate the ktel album... even the john waite tune.

HA! Good Fun!

Nice.

I saw someone in the comments point out that the chorus is 20 seconds long! 😵

<video of Bruce Springsteen singing The Weight>

I admit that I wasn't familiar with Levon Helm before this video, but...

Well, hot damn. Call me a sentimental and/or pretentious sucker, but that was magical. Genuinely touching, especially when you consider the spontaneity of the performance.

If you'll excuse a banal thought: this, to me, is a glimpse into what lies in the heart of music as a whole. This is that pure, expressive kernel of beauty and humanity that will outlive us all and move people for as long as someone can remember the song.

Thank you for introducing me to this one.
