Re: Philip José Farmer
Sooner or later everyone.

His passing has given me a little desire to reread the RiverWorld books. I wonder if they will still feel as good 25-30 years after I first read them.

I love KUMD. Since I moved to Cumberland I only get to listen to it online or when I go up to Duluth/Superior area.

Re: Dear Leader
Funny you should mention a Bruce currency.
I am trying to introduce the Bruce as a unit of measure. As my name is Bruce and I am almost exactly 6' tall, I think 6' should be called one Bruce.

I have been used to measure out things like volleyball courts in the past.

Re: Levon Helm, 71
This is a tough one for me. He was one of the greats. I listen to him and The Band all the time. One of my regrets is never making it to a Midnight Ramble.

By the third I think he was thinking of younger brother Andy.

But you are correct he was not a Bee Gee.

Bob Hoskins

I thought he was great in a number of films, but the one that most leaps to mind is Mona Lisa

He contributed to a bit of secular music also.

Re: Jean Genius - Sorrow for a Hero
Been listening to his albums all morning. I have most of his stuff, but haven't really listened to it in a few years. My new hearing aids are giving me a new appreciation. Some of it sounds pretty dated but a lot of it has held up will over the years.

Re: Leonard Cohen, 82
One of my all time favorites. He just released his last album last month. Pick it up, listen to it. It is very good.
