Album of the Week: The Blues Brothers Soundtrack.

Why do I not have this album already?

And why are half the MP3s missing on my Briefcase Full of Blues?  Clearly, something has gone terribly wrong, somewhere.  I need to address this, pronto.

‘Rubberband Man.’

The Rubberband Man, Spinners

I don’t know who it is that picks the music for the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, but whoever it is: they earn their corn.

Aretha Franklin has passed.

Aretha Franklin passed today in hospice care, surrounded by friends and family.  She was… she was marvelous.  In the sense that she was a marvel: unique, talented, and confident in her plans and desires.  I’ve never heard anybody say a bad word about her.

This is, hands down, my favorite Aretha Franklin song and scene. Rest in peace, ma’am.

Prayers for Aretha.

Aretha Franklin is, apparently, gravely ill.  I don’t think that it’s the kind of ill that you can easily recover from, either.  My prayers for her, her family, and loved ones.

And by NEVER…

…he means ABSOLUTELY.

Via Facebook.  The dude has some albums here, too.
