My heart stopped when I saw this headline:  The Odd Awful Downfall of the School Librarian of the Year.  This time, however, it turned out not to be @Ahhh Girl.  Whew!a-hard-days-night-george-10

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

So, Black and White were roommates. White killed Black. Looks like Ebony and Ivory didn't live in perfect harmony in this story.

What an awful disease Black had.

Even stranger: Black was white and White was black. Anthony White's body was later pulled out of the Hudson River.  True to the headline--an odd, awful story.

That isn't randomness. I dare say it is in fact situational based on the fact that it is Easter.

A more random (or spontaneous really) would be to wish Happy Easter on July 25th.

What would be good tracks to put in a Beatles Rock and Roll Playlist?

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

The wonderful Broadchurch is ending this evening on telly. I'll be sad to see it go, Hardy and Miller were one of the best pairs ever on tv in recent years.

 

Last week we had one of Hardy's greatest moments ever (minor spoilers, if you're any way interested in Broadchurch- give it a look to see if it's your thing).

How do I correct someone without saying that they're wrong, I could say I disagree with you but if it doesn't involve opinion, that would sound weird. Also, can we move this discussion to another thread like the incredibly impossible to derail this thread thread, I don't want to derail this thread.  

First, do what the man (@PeterWeatherby) said - READ before you post.

If I thought someone might be "wrong" about a factual piece of information, I might say: "Have you considered..." and fill in what I think is the right answer. Take Mary Poppin's sage advice: "a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down." I can couch the information that someone may have something wrong in positive terms. I think you've built up quite a bit of ill will with folks here so anything you say for a while may cause consternation. But, maybe there is Hope For The Future if you learn the ways of the force for good.

Your cavalier attitude is obnoxious. No one here expects you to be 100% right all of the time. We don't see you as less of a person if you don't know some little factoid. [We have @Ron Nasty for factoids. LOL!]

@Joe, @Zig, @meanmistermustard, or anyone...any more thoughts on the way people can let someone know they have a bit of information wrong so that the information is received with welcome arms instead of wanting to use those same arms to put DO in a headlock?

Give sources and teach people how to be more media literate so they can analyze their facts better.

For anyone interested, you can deliberately say a piece of false information so I can see how well I can correct you while still being nice about it. It's odd how this is happening because in real life, I don't take well to redirections or constructive criticism so it's odd how often I give it out here.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.
