#respect for the Dixie Chicks

The Chicks (previously known as the Dixie Chicks)  … have won 13 Grammy Awards.

Remember this from 2003?

Anti-war band the Dixie Chicks have hit back at their critics – by posing naked on the front of a leading showbiz magazine.

The Grammy-winning band suffered a massive backlash in America after they said they were “ashamed” President George Bush was from their home state of Texas.


Google, movies, music, TV

I’m trying YouTube Premium

CAD $12 / month if I continue after the first free month.

💛  No ads  💛 

I’m tempted.  I hate YouTube ads, particularly the ones mid-video.

Subscription includes a short list of YouTube Original shows and movies.

In fact, I tried the service to watch the Gymnastics series Defying Gravity.

Better is YouTube Music.

I downloaded the YouTube Music app for my iPhone, as well.  I can play almost anything with or without video.  Offline if I download.

It does NOT include YouTube TV.   That’s OK as it’s only available in the USA and costs $64.99/mo.

Prince – Sign ‘O The Times remastered

If I could go back in time … for just one concert … I think I’d go for Prince Sign o’ the Times Tour 1987.

Sheila E on drums. Awesome.

The Sign o’ the Times double album was superb, too.  Prince at his most over-the-top.

Rolling Stone magazine ranks it the #45 best album all time.

That album will be released as a RemasteredDeluxe and Super Deluxe edition on September 25, 2020.

It includes 45 previously unreleased songs from Prince’s vault.

2020 USA – What’s Going On?

I was offline cycling for 6 days of the protests and riots, folks angered about American police brutality against African Americans.

Happy to miss so much of that pain and anger. Actually.

It’s not easy to see any way the USA will be less divided anytime soon. If 40% of Americans still support Trump after his gross incompetence, they’ll go to the grave believing he was some kind of genius.

Marvin Gaye:

Mother, mother
There’s too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There’s far too many of you dying
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today, yeah

Father, father
We don’t need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate …
