Stones Turn 50!

This has already been way overdone in the media, but I am sure my imaginary readers are expecting me to at least acknowledge it.

Today is the day, July 12, marking the 50th anniversary of the Stones first gig in 1962.  No need to belabor the point, but it's pretty incredible for a rock band to be so relevant for so long.

Guitar Hero

Here's a great video of a guy playing 100 classic guitar riffs in one take. I'm not sure all these riffs are classics, but the video is worth seeing.

What do you find more impressive: this guy's effortless command of the instrument, or his awesome cognitive agility in making 99 mental transitions, from one key and rhythm to the next, without missing a beat?

National Anthem has 2 Verses?

Apparently so.

Here's a video of a former marine, poignantly reminding a small gathering about it.

I am not promoting any particular religious views, nor am I supporting any particular political stance, I just thought  this was a good thing to share on the 4th of July!
