Question for Groening by a reporter:
“Mr. Groening, what do you say to those who still deny the Holocaust?”

Groening:
“Nothing. They are hopelessly lost.”


Harvard Crimson (on why it refused to run an add by Bradley Smith):
“(It is) vicious propaganda based on utter BS that has been discredited time and time again.”

Enjoy it while it’s up:


It struck me how they all looked like they enjoyed playing together. Here at the very end of the band John and Paul smiled at each other as they played.

My favorite was the banker looking guy in the bowler hat climbing on the roof to watch.

Ah the Hollywood Brats, our Very own New York Dolls. The lost British Glam -proto- punk band. They split up in 1975. A book published in 2015 showed how unlucky the Brats were. How they really could and should have been contenders. Known also for their cover of, 'Then he kissed me' and a proto punk attitude effort, 'sick on you.'

"We are still waiting for anyone to rebut the main theme of the article that the decode in question and the numbers it quoted perfectly match those in the Korherr report.

Until such a rebuttal comes to light and goes through peer review the article stands the test of time. And after 10 years since the article was published both Peter (Witte) and I have moved on to other research projects. "

I've been listening to a 219-song loop on Sonos, all The Fall, for several days. About 3 days into this, my wife observed that The Fall is one of the great bands of all time. :)

Out of curiosity I pulled him up.

I have no idea on how to judge rap or hip/hop. It does nothing for me except for a few songs here and there. I didn’t like what I heard but I suppose if you like that kind of thing he would be good.

To me rapping or hip/hop always struck me as bad rhyming over a soundtrack.

Lest I sound like some fuddy-duddy white dude I don’t like country either except for a few songs here and there. My wife likes country so we agree not to listen to the radio together in the car. Unfortunately she corrupted my youngest son who now likes country.
