Wow, Harlan Ellison . . .

Off topic, but I used to love him in high school. Like to see him write more essays, and perhaps, his memoirs . . .

Your favourite non Yestalk sites?

The Charlie Haden playing is excellent news to me . . .

That sounds tres cool, I may have to check it out . . .

My college advisor once said I was a "Robert Downey Jr character" in his life's screenplay . . .

I'd almost bet that Jon does sing on this--he does evince a fondness for old druggie types . . .

Yes just never moves me to tears, it makes me happy. Okay, some songs move me emotionally, but to tears?

A few songs have made my cry, even as cynical as I am. Don McLean's "Vincent--Sting's "They Dance Alone . . .

I sure have--but hopefully, this can be an ongoing subject.
