The Morning Brief
OK, somebody better get the AC in the graphics lab fixed. I woke up this morning to 88?F outside only to arrive in class where it’s 57?F. Guys are not meant to have perky nipples, despite what Martin Lawrence might have you think. Cripes it’s cold enough to make John Holmes look like Pee-Wee Herman. “It’s so cold that if I took a piss, I’d have to snap it off after I’m done.” Of course, I shouldn’t complain. Back in Detroit “it was so cold that when I woke up in the morning I found a wee ice cube in my bed. I threw it in the fire and it went : FART!!!” But enough Bill Connolly? jokes there’s an entry in here somewhere.
It seems that RIAA still doesn’t have a clue. It’s not that I advocate pirating music from musicians & songwriters, but I believe the RIAA only has ITS interests in mind NOT the best interests of the artists they represent. I’ve said it many times before, the music business turned into the business of music a long time ago. I don’t agree that Napster, Kazaa & other peer-to-peer programs are the sole reason CD sales have declined. It’s crappy albums, one hit wonders and the same garbage recycled every hour on the hour via Clear Channel radio stations. As Kristen said “It’s about time that we all turned off the radio.” [no permalink, entry dated July 12th] So while the RIAA attempts to bully folks into submission remember that you should fight for fair use copyrights and it’s about getting monies into the artist’s hand NOT some greedy corporation.
In keeping up with the latest blog trend I will refer you dear readers to MY MP3 page. You should note that the songs herein are originals performed by my sister Lesli or my buddy Ron (who had yours truly as his awesome keyboard player). Check them out if you haven’t already. I’ve posted some QuickTime clips of my sister’s band as well.
