Well, it's just that all the great artists I admire come from the 20th century, and they're all dying in the 21st century, which makes this century a bit of a downer, bit by bit, year by year, a little less like the century I know and come from the further on it goes.

Other than that, everything's great. There's a stack of CDs ready to play, a pile of DVDs, and plenty of beer in the fridge.

Now if only all my favorite people would just stop dying....

Very sad thread indeed...but it's life. Makes me wonder in light of the flurry of aging musicians/rock bands touring and re-issuing some of their back catalogue of music, they might be feeling their own mortality. Just a bit...not quite a swan song, yet..hopefully!smiling smiley
