One of my favorite websites I regularly check in with is the Wikipedia homepage. I jokingly made a comment this week that the “Did you know?” pane continuously sucks while the “On this day…” pane is usually always phenomenal. I want to be the person at Wikipedia paid to select which of the important anniversaries ought to be displayed on the home page. I would be awesome at that job. I’d even do the “Did you know?” section better, too. All this is to get to the point that I love reading the “on this day” section because I’m consistently surprised by shared anniversaries.
That’s right, believe it: after a five month break, it’s time for us to make a comeback. It’s been a nice, dark, silent winter and early spring and all, but we need some more entries, right? After all, what’s history without the soundtrack? And I promise up front that there’s at least one more off in the wings from me (but with all my waiting time, I’m hoping regular updates), so be on the lookout. Hopefully the other writers here will get on board, too, as I’m sure you’re all looking for the remaining two (er, well, three) years in Kev’s Post Flow series, and I know I’m not alone wanting some more sick nasty imagination from Shaun and uh can the people get some more of Benvo’s soul? Well, without further ado, here’s a brand new six random for your ear buds: Read the rest of this entry »
J5 came up with a brilliant concept that fits perfectly within the blog and he’s called it “Six Random” — basically I iTunes randomly gives me a 6 song playlist and then I muse about who might appreciate said playlist in history. Why six songs? Because John says so. So here’s my try at it.
Six Random Songs:
“The Fuse” by Bruce Springsteen The Rising
“Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” by Crosby, Stills & Nash
“Crooked Jack” by John Doyle (traditional) Evening Comes Early
“Pink Moon” by Nick Drake Pink Moon
“Dirt Off Your Shoulder” by Jay-Z The Black Album
“Where It’s At” by Beck Odelay
