Sunday Roast: Adele…again

Yeah, I know!  I just did an Adele post a couple weeks ago!  But it’s different now, because her new album, 25, is out.  This means the whole world is a different place now, which calls for another Adele post.

Too over the top…?  Whatever, dude!  At least I didn’t pull a cringe-worthy Wasilla Grifter stunt.  Ugh.

This is our daily open thread — I missed music night, so post your tunes!

The Watering Hole Friday October 9, 2015 – Music Night

Apologize for last week’s stumble.


Paul Siebel cut two albums (Woodsmoke and Oranges and Jack-knife Gypsy) in the early 70’s and then pretty much disappeared from the music scene.

The two albums made him a musician’s musician. His songs were covered by, among others, David Bromberg, Willy DeVille, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Jerry Jeff Walker, Kate Wolf, Mary McCaslin, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, and Leo Kottke, but songwriter Paul Siebel remained unknown to the larger public.

He was located  upstate New York a dozen years ago working as a bread baker, and later as an employee of the county parks system. A talent deserving a better fate.




The Watering Hole: October 1, 2015 — Something stupid

Our frugal’s computer is behaving badly, so it’s been sent off to reform school or camping or some other horrible thing.  ;)

I told him I’d post one of my stupid things, and our Zooster houseofroberts suggested the above video.  Thanks, House!!!  *tipping hat*

Listening to that old song reminded me of the olden days — you know, my childhood — which not only smelled of cigarettes and coffee, but sounded like Sinatra, Perry Como, Smokey Robinson, and Herb Alpert.  Thanks, Mom!!  Except for the cigarette part — coulda done without that.  *cough*

Anyhoo, more Nancy!!

This is our daily open thread — Happy October!
