Weak Sauce About Nothing

Salsa débil sobre nada!

cool fucking idea for a magazine.

Good Magazine, donates 100% of your subscription to the charity of your choice, a very cool idea indeed.  I’ll peruse it now and see if I have any intrest in the content.

Proud Mary

So Ike Turner died. So I dug into my CD collection and found a live version of Proud Mary that I haven’t listened to in a long time. Mother fucking brilliant. So it got me thinking about how people are really judged.

If you don’t know, Ike Turner was an amazing songwriter and producer in the really early days of rock and roll and R&B. But what is he really remembered for, “I only beat you because I love you.” He may or may not have been a “good man,” but should one time period in his life really define him. I guess that is really sad to me, and really disheartening. I have a past full of shit like this (not wife beating, but dig deep enough, and there is some bad shit back there), and I really hope that when I die, I’m remembered for doing some good, instead of the evil that I threw into the world.

What do you think? Should people be judged for the good or the bad? Or can you only find the real heart of a person by looking at the whole?

Just thinking about this a lot today. Also if you like Tina Turner, James Brown, that kind of hyped up rythym and blues review shows, ala Blues Brothers. Then you have to check out Sharon Jones.

The Illusionist

So though I claim to be a pretty big fan of movies, I don’t really have the time to watch them as much as I would like, so I finally got a chance to see The Illusionist last night.  Fucking bad ass.  It is Saturday and I’m feeling lazy so I will leave it at that for now, so lets leave it at, “I really liked the movie.”
