You probably heard of Alex Trebek the longstanding host of the T.V. show Jeopardy! (one of my favorite shows). He will be missed.
But who was Viola Smith? “The Fastest Girl Drummer”? She was 107 and still occasionally sat in with local jazz groups into her 100’s!
Check this out…
Kraftwerk started electronic pop/rock music. They should be in the Rock Hall.
Because why not?
Rodrigo y Gabriela, wow, so much to say. If you like guitar, then you should hear them.
I’ve played this a few times before class. Strange group. A loose art collective from Minneapolis. Great groove, very Buddhist lyrics.
One of the creepiest songs. A classic rap song from the 1990’s. Great images.
I love this version. It was done for the BBC on the anniversary of this 1980’s electronic dance song. It only uses instruments that would have been available in the 1930’s….
One of my favorite songwriters in in intensive care right now fighting for his life from COVID-19. He has survived cancer twice. I just thought you should know of him.
Update: John Prine passed today.
I still cannot fathom why people are stockpiling toilet paper for a respiratory illness. Anyway, if you were thinking of using tissues, that may not be wise, as this strange (but informative) Youtube video shows…
Wow. I am speechless. I saw him in concert twice. Amazing.
The band Rush always loved Cleveland and credited us with starting their career.
One more, from the old days…
Rock’s first power drummer. He was not a nice man, but he was ahead of his time.
Maple Heights High School Class of 1963
There are now at least 193 people across 22 states have suffered from respiratory illnesses after vaping.
Blade Runner, Ladyhawke, much more.
The Black Keys have released a new album!
The Berklee School of Music doing a tribute to one of my favorite composers. Perhaps it isn’t your cup of tea, but I like it a lot. These students are from all over the world.
to U.S. theaters next month. Jackson was able to take existing footage from WW I and enhance and colorize it to make it more natural. Eliminating the herky jerky motion of old cameras. Amazing results. These images are over 100 years old. Sadly, about 770,000 British troops alone did not survive the war.
A great American hero gets his due…
I will be going.
First, I have a problem with Porsche making SUV’s. So we’ll just put that out there. I’m not much for SUV’s to begin with, but, this really is an abomination.

Now that the smoke has cleared and the kids are safe. A quick word about the folks who engineered this rescue.
First the divers that found them…
Then the Doctor that stayed with them…
This may be a bad idea…
This is scary…
Repair cafes are a new thing in the UK. Sounds like a neat idea. Fix your old stuff rather than throw it away.
His contributions to Physics and his ability to popularize science have secured his place in history, his triumph over motor neuron disease have made him a legend. It is rare that a real human is far more compelling a character than anything fiction could dream up.
Every year students ask me questions about quantum mechanics. And I have to say “It’s weird.” and leave it largely at that. Here’s a good reason why…
