  1. Die Hard is a Christmas Movie?

    I know that Die Hard is a Christmas movie because many years ago, a friend played it for me at Christmastime and told me so. Ditto for Die Hard 2. I'd never seen them before, and I haven't seen them since.
  2. Berklee in the News (and it ain't pretty)

    So did/do I, a lot. In the case of Ortiz in particular, it's really hard for me to reconcile the artistry with the dickishness.
  3. 11/10/17 "Louis C.K. has finally addressed one of the comedy world’s biggest open secrets: the stories of sexual misconduct that have trailed him for years.

  8. Gulf Coasters, Be Safe!

    Precisely, but my take on the optics is very different. I hope we can agree to disagree. At any rate, I've now read that she'd changed into tennies by the time she got to Texas. Meanwhile, with Fenton Robinson on guitar,
  9. Gulf Coasters, Be Safe!

    Re the photo in the previous post: It's gotta be Photoshopped, only it's not! At least Marie Antoinette didn't wear cfm heels* to leave the palace during a rainfall and go tour a calamitously flooded region. *Please Google "cfm heels" if you don't know what they are.
