Weekend Open Thread

Good Morning. I hope that you are enjoying this weekend virtually with family and friends.



This cover is one of the rare occasions where the cover just knocks it out of the park, and takes the song to a whole other level.

Original, which I thought was haunting….

Until I heard this live performance by Disturbed on Conan.

This is a beautiful tribute to the late Midwin Charles. RIP😢🙏

    Wow. That’s an impressive cover of The Sounds of Silence. I don’t think that Paul Simon ever wrote anything better, and he wrote a lot of good songs.

    I love that extraordinary young performers are finding these great songs from 50+ years ago and giving them a new interpretation.

    “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls, and tenement halls…”

    Such truth there.

    Look, it’s April 17, and that means we drink for Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter, ok

    I don’t make the rules, I just enforce em

    Now, you might ask WHY we do such a thing, and I say, we drink for DDP because OTD in ’63, the Rebs in Vicksburg, MS had a VERY BAD MORNING INDEED https://twitter.com/pptsapper/status/1383592584413515779?s=20

    I have cable again for the first time since October.
    Took over an hour, but it’s working.
    Thank you, Pfizer. That was the first person I didn’t know in my house since February 2020.
