Rest in peace, Jimmy. Though most famous for being the drummer on "Kind of Blue", you're not a one-album legend, and have proven yourself again in other fantastic jazz albums such as Coltrane's "Giant Steps" and Davis's "Sketches of Spain". Drum away on the other side.

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

I just really like repairing stuff

RIP Detective Garda Colm Harkan, pulled a man over last night at midnight. For whatever reason and somehow the man got a hold of his gun and shot him dead, emptying his 15-round pistol. 


He is the 89th garda to have been killed in the line of duty since the foundation of An Garda Síochána in 1922.

Also, RIP to Jean Kennedy Smith one of the key players in the peace talks in Northern Ireland. Her death marks the end of Camelot.

RIP Vera Lynn. Her wonderful songs kept a nation fighting in its darkest hour.

We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through, just like you always do
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

My go to version is The Byrds' later cover, but of course I greatly acknowledge the impact and hope her recording put into the British war effort of the time. Sounds like she lived life to its fullest, but too bad you never hear about other songs she did though. R.I.P. Veraapple01heart
