My number one pet peeve about drumming, is that everyone thinks they can do it. Every drum circle of hippies I've been to, I want to confiscate their drums. You have fancy djembes, darboukas, and all sorts of frame drums and tambourines and shakers - but you can't count to four, let alone subdivide it.
1961’s West Side Story is hailed as one of the greatest movies of all time – certainly in the musical genre – so Steven Spielberg had some huge shoes to fill when he set out to re-adapt the iconic Broadway show. Here is where his version stands out.
There's so much going on around us now and being the beginning of the year, so many different feelings of optimism and concern in the year ahead. So this weekend's music thread is about feelings, happy or sad, righteous anger or compassionate love, share your favorite songs about feelings.
SNL isn't the edgiest, and I hear you when you talk about it's 'punk' roots. And Canada's SCTV came before or was a contemporary. Kids in the Hall was later. Exit 57 in the mid-90s [Colbert, Sedaris, Dinello].
As a stand-in for TrueLump, the seditionists around him and in Congress, this Christmas' song parody is about the man who will soon be in a Nightmare After Christmas along with many of his fellow criminals, Rugy DroolyOnMe...or something like that. Run Rudolph run! They're comin' for ya!
If you aren't busy trying to pass kidney stones or slamming a car door on your fingers, you may want to watch these panels and the speeches CPAC this weekend...even if they're more painful.
"You'll be on your way down! things will change so pell mell! And before you will know it you'll be trapped down in Hell."
"Twas the nuts before Christmas, and through the White House
Not a sane thought was offered, not even by mouth;
The pardons were flung by ol' Trump in a fit,
In a manner like monkeys do fling their own sh*t. The MAGAs were riled by the lies they were fed, While visions of Soros plots danced in their heads; And Birx in her 'kerchief, and Barr full of crap, Had just bailed out so they won't take the rap,
Fired-but-continuing Trump Campaign lawyer Sidney Powell appeared in a Pennsylvania courthouse today along with colleagues Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis and faced a confused Judge Matthew W. Brann who questioned why they filed a petition accusing themselves of fraud.
RUDY GIULIANI: "I'm thankful for absorbent Kleenexes, dental implants, Nosferatu, quick-dry hair dye, lax state laws about forcibly committing people to mental asylums, and nuts...lots and lots of nuts."
