We saw him opening for somebody in concert one time, maybe Crosby Stills and Nash, but before we saw him in concert we saw him driving his own bus to be in concert.

RIP Sharon Jones

OMG...when we lived in Japan, we had "geckoes" that lived in our apartment...it is considered good luck if you had house geckoes.
One night, we were watching the military TV station and it was an Al Jarreau concert...our TV was in the bedroom and suddenly we heard this weird chirping sound...looked down on the floor and saw 4 geckoes all lined up, looking up at the TV, and chirping right along to Al...

Arturo Di Modica, get over yourself. If you think you still own the Charging Bull, feel free to take it away. But stop whining about how Fearless Girl, a commissioned sculpture, is infringing on your rights. You gave up your rights when you dropped the bull off in front of the NYSE uninvited - it didn't stay there, it was moved to a new location, were you crying about that? Either accept that it is a public piece of art, or reclaim it and put it in your backyard. But shut up already.
Marcel Duchamp is having a good chuckle somewhere.

Great great talent. I've managed to see them several times since I was a teenager, and they never disappointed.
