If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

What?

He died over 2 years ago...

6 July 2020.

He composed the music for The Mission... Gabriel's Oboe is one of the most hauntingly beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard.

Oh, well. It's a good enough reason to revisit the videos of the Danish Symphony Orchestra performing the spaghetti western trilogy.

I always thought it was cute that Tuva Semmingsen (the "wa-wa girl") wore earrings modeled after pistols.

Well, crud.  The story I ran across said it was yesterday.  Didn't catch the date in the wiki.  Enjoy the music anyway.

I second the Danish national symphony stuff.  Fantastic.

If you're into movie scores,  John Williams is still alive and kicking.   We saw him in 2019 an it was awesome.  If he's guest conducting near your it's worth whatever they're charging to see him.

There is no fixing stupid. But, you can line it up in front of a wall and offer it a last smoke.

There is no such thing as a "transgender" person.  Only mental illness that should be discouraged.
