Not exactly on topic but yesterday in the middle of a song my Spotify stopped. I checked my phone and my Bluetooth speaker?, plenty of battery. I looked at the Spotify app and the "Playlist deleted, choose another". But all my playlists were gone, all my songs. I'm out of the country, no television, so being able to listen to my music is critical to my sanity. Luckily it all came back later and this morning the neighbors were able to enjoy my Buddy Guy/Taj Mahal playlist again

OK, so it won't post directly... but watch it.
Bunch of ska musicians have been connecting over the covid shutdown (and still doing so as things are opening up|) and doing covers of various songs. Rage Against the Machine's Killing in the Name of, Dragonforce's Through the Fire and Flames, Steve Winwood's Higher Love, and so on.

Heard this a little while back did not get the name or artist but could hear a similarity to train kept a rolling. Heard part of the song again today but got the name and artist and it all made sense.
Then the double check.

I've been learning the harmonica this year and I keep looking for motivation. Buddy Greene is really good, but a guy needs variety.
When my wife and I first married, we were poor as dirt. I had to walk quite a way to my job, through fields etc, so I would play my harmonica on the way. I got a lot of practice. I got pretty good. But I don't play anymore. I see them on the shelf as I type, might grab one right now and give it a go...

Go for it! Throw it on YouTube and share a clip, if you feel like it.

For the last few years, around Christmas I get the feeling that I should learn to play an instrument. Last year, after not hearing a live church organist all through Advent and Christmas, I finally bought a MIDI keyboard. I was having great fun with it, but I wanted to get some new sheet music to practice after I went through a good chunk of a Beginner Piano book I bought with it. I figured that harmonica music should be pretty safe for me to try, but I made the mistake of buying a harmonica with the sheet music, and I soon found myself having more fun playing harmonica and the keyboard sat, mostly forgotten.

I think after the new year I'll get the keyboard back out and try to devote a few hours each week to playing that, maybe more if I'm fighting a cold. Those have been a real problem.

I was listening to Pandora in "deep cuts" mode and this song served up. I thought, "there's way too much detail in this song, it sounds like an actual historic event." And it was! (Ozzy Osborne, dressed in Sharon's clothes because she had hidden his, was arrested for peeing on the Alamo) I'm a native Texan and a fan of Asleep at the Wheel, so not sure how I had never heard of either the incident or the song. Perhaps because it happened my last year in college and I didn't have much access to news or TV back then, and AFAIK the song never got any air time probably because it uses one of George Carlin's Seven Dirty Words. (it's a pretty mild usage, but the FCC has no sense of humor) Enjoy the music:
