Weekend Music: Imagine

I was gonna wax eloquent about Queen and other things today. Thank your lucky stars I decided not to inflict that on you, and enjoy the video.

Have a good weekend, and rest assured there’s more to come.

Always more to come with this blog.

Deep thought: Before a thing that hasn’t existed ever before can become real, someone must imagine it. That’s the first step.

Now clap your hands if you believe in fairies.

Hand-clapping on the thread is an approved method of interaction today.

Also good: Finger-snapping, I’ll take finger-snaps all day long. You classroom-managers KNOW what I’m talking about. Mass finger-snapping is one of the most beautiful phenomena in all of creation. It’s quiet and busy at the same time. That is a killer combination.

Keep blogging, people. Just. Keep. Blogging.

Weekend Music: The King is Gone (But He’s Not Forgotten)

Video

Neil Young at Toronto. Notable for the excellence of the harmonica work. One of those songs no one except the person who wrote it can play correctly. You don’t want your kids to internalize this attitude, but it is a way of thinking the 60s and 70s produced in North America. Great performance here. Watching this video is like standing in front of a large monument.

On to business.

No business today. Stop by tomorrow for a Fear the Walking Dead post from Luther, and read his damn blog, y’all.

Coffee here on Sunday, and we’re working on some things for next week which might include a Sourcerer’s 11 interview with author/blogger extraordinaire Alex Hurst.

Have a great weekend!

Weekend Music: The Battle of New Orleans

Video

This one’s just for fun. The video quality is not the best, but it serves.

I mentioned earlier this week that I’m working on a guest post for my friend Hannah’s blog, Things Matter. The video is a large hint as to what that post is about, and keep in mind, Things Matter is, among other things, a history blog. So probably not about folk songs played by country bands.

Happy Weekend! Natacha‘s in the house with a #StarWars Saturday for you tomorrow.

Weekend Music: Texas Flood

Video

Maybe the best single Stevie Ray Vaughan performance I’ve ever run into on the Internets. From the 1989 Presidential Inaugural Concert.

I’m moving my #WeekendCoffeeShare posts here from Just Gene’O starting tomorrow.

Also, Melissa and I are working up a little something special for next week that you don’t want to miss.
