EASTER WEEK RESURRECTION ROCK v2
"The Show Must Go On!" - Freddie Mercury

Mercury was so ill when the band recorded the song in 1990 that May had concerns as to whether he was physically capable of singing it. Recalling Mercury's performance, May states; "I said, 'Fred, I don't know if this is going to be possible to sing.' And he went, 'I'll fucking do it, darling'—vodka down—and went in and killed it, completely lacerated that vocal"

EASTER WEEK RESURRECTION ROCK v1
"Hurt" - Johnny Cash

HARDENED METAL? Cash redefines HURT...

Cash took Reznor's self-absorbed lyrics about teenaged angst and rendered them into a crystallized reflection of what is important when you are facing its inevitable ending.

This was his last recording, it was filmed in February 2003... June, his wife for 35 years, died three months later - Johnny followed her in September.

EASTER WEEK RESURRECTION ROCK FINALE
Ain't No Grave - Bror Gunnar Jansson

HAPPY EASTER - HE HAS RISEN

Even the wildest rockabilly rarely reached the unhinged delirium of "There Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down," ... A Holiness preacher from Kentucky, "Brother" Claude Ely was a faith healer and a terrific guitarist, judging from the ferocious rockabilly rhythms on "Grave," a country hit in 1953.

I chose my favorite cover by Bror Gunnar Jansson.

EASTER WEEK RESURRECTION ROCK v7
"Passing Strange - Love Like That" - Stew

A mother's death, and the awful feeling of suddenly becoming "an orphan..."

Passing Strange's is: "about the costs of being a young artist. It's a 46-year-old guy looking back at the things that he did and the values he had in his 20s when he's making that decision to really become an artist ..."

Stew interacts on stage with his younger self on a journey to find "the real..."

EASTER WEEK RESURRECTION ROCK v6
“Tears In Heaven” Eric Clapton

Death of A Son
"Tears in Heaven" asks the question of whether we will meet again with those that have passed before us. Though it was created out of the devastating loss of his child, the song became Clapton’s best-selling single in the United States.

Only three years sober when Conor died, Clapton says the tragedy gave him the strength to fully commit to his sobriety instead of relapsing.

ON STALLMAN

But as of now, I must say it:
There are some deeply troubling things in the accusations being made against Stallman, and in the way I see people reacting to it.

For an intellectually honest person it shouldn't be needed to state the difference between what Stallman said and what was reported. Stallman said that it was possible that the girl presented herself to Minsky as entirely willing... He did not defend Epstein.

The crux of the matter: "Considering all this, it’s no surprise that many young people are terrified of the virus. But we’d do well to remember that fear is the pathway to subservience."

Mick Jagger needed surgery on his heart in 2017. Did he wait in line as most UK citizens do in a semi socialized medicine state? Nope. He booked a flight to NYC and had his surgery in America. This is during the time the liberal prick was pushing for socialized medicine here.
The rich will buy the best care when they preach the worst care for the rest of us.

so my favorite BBQ owner told me they are now limiting his orders on meat ... earlier they doubled and tripled the prices ... the reason given? workers have not returned to the meat packing plants because they are making more money in UNemployment (with covid pay added in) than they would at work.

Paid for by the covid "relief" funds.

Pathetic

@DotardTed @MrMaxPowers247 @GluedToTheScreen my kiddos are swimmers and the YMCA team is coached my a millennial wuss who doesn’t want them to compete and is all paranoid about cases. He was pressured as there are meets going on and there have been zero cases from any athletes.

Yes, they are in a vat of chlorine and the mental health aspect has been amazing for the kids!

When Google's Fancy Lawyers Screw Up

A redacted document showed extremely sensitive information. Google's lawyer accidentally made it public.

This case includes an allegation that Google’s large online advertising marketplace - think stock market but instead of stocks they trade ad slots - is riddled with secret rigged auctions.

“... a deal between Google and Facebook to give Facebook some preferred position in those ad auctions...”

Sidney Powell called Joe Biden a "demented pervert...who can't tie his own shoelace." Gosh I love her.

“Just realize they took the two most pathetic candidates in the history of the Democratic Party. A vice president who didn’t even win a primary in her own state. And a demented pervert, among other things, who can’t even tie his own shoelaces or know where he is and they crammed them up our nose with a fork of fraud so blatant that it is visible around the world.”

This makes me furious.

Illegal immigrants in Texas are being given the following after processing:

1. "Social Security cards during an adjudication process that can drag on for years."

2. “'Order of Release on Recognizance,' which grants them the legal right to be present inside the United States"

3. A chartered bus ticket to a major city.
