Sunday Roast: Music!

It’s been a while since we’ve had a Music Sunday, so here ya go.  No, I’m not being lazy — don’t be silly!  Heh, you guys need to dance off all that Pi you ate yesterday.  ;)

I’ve been hearing Uptown Funk on the radio, and it just friggin’ gets me going like no pop princess or brooding guy with a guitar ever could — or will.  They nailed it IMHO.

This is our daily open thread — Enjoy!!

  1. Check out the repeat of Fareed Zakaria at 1pm edt on CNN. It’s a science report on various cutting edge technologies. No politics.

      This warning was dramatized in William Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar:

      Soothsayer: Beware the ides of March.
      Caesar: What man is that?
      Brutus: A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.
      Caesar: Set him before me; let me see his face.
      Cassius: Fellow, come from the throng; look upon Caesar.
      Caesar: What say’st thou to me now? Speak once again.
      Soothsayer: Beware the ides of March.
      Caesar: He is a dreamer; let us leave him: pass.

  2. Cecil Mitch McConnell still undermining the Iran nuke negotiations. What I find really disturbing is this:

    “Some Senate Democrats also want a congressional review.

    “I have supported the negotiations to this point but any deal that touches upon the congressional statutory sanctions is going to get a review of Congress,” said Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia.

    “The only question is, are you going to have a constructive deliberate bipartisan process, or are you going be rushed and partisan?”

    No, Senator Kaine, the only question is, “do you WANT a war with Iran, or not?” STFU and let the negotiations proceed without embarrassing us further!

  3. The Peruvian meadowlark is a species of bird in the Icteridae family. It is found in Chile, Ecuador, and Peru.

  4. So, not strictly in the music theme (though not strictly not … ) my colleague and coauthor Randy decided I didn’t have enough to do, so he roped me into presenting in HIS track at the 2015 International Whitehead Conference as well. Because he knows I play them, he want me to do a presentation on the aesthetics of First Person Shooter computer games. Having no sense whatever, I said “yes.” (I’m now committed to two papers, one of which (not this one!) will fill an entire 90 minute session.)

    I’ll focus on one game in particular, Borderlands 2. I already have a title:
    TROUBLE ON THE BORDERLANDS: Mayhem, Madness, and Morality (and a bazilionder guns)

    (Oh, and here’s hoping all that HTML code worked … )

    Section 1, “Mayhem” is subtitled “Wimoweh” …
