Blondie’s Deborah Harry turns 70 today

I love Blondie. I love Debbie Harry. Refer to last year’s birthday post and track list to explore some good music from Blondie with Debbie Harry on lead vocals.

Happy Birthday, Debbie!

I love me some Rihanna, but when I think of “Bitch Betta Have My Money,” what pops into my head is the AMG version from the early 90s. My cousin Sharmayne and I wore this song out. Now you can too.

This evening’s peak:

I pique your interest by

giving you a peek.

In case you missed it, President Barack Obama delivered a rousing eulogy for Clementa Pinckney in South Carolina today. Let the church say “Amen!”

Supreme Court Brings Marriage Equality To The Entire Country

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court has ruled that same-sex couples across the country have a constitutional right to marry, regardless of what state they live in. This brings marriage equality to all of the states where same-sex marriage bans were still in place or still being enforced to some extent: North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan. The precedent would also apply to U.S. territories, including Puerto Rico.

The sole purpose of this post is to test the formatting for the ‘Aside’ post format. Nothing to see here.

What would happen if an aside post had more than forty words in it? Would there be a ‘continue reading’ or ‘more’ link, or would it all still show up on the front page?

What about featured images?

I am sharing this video again because I never want it to die. Also, I make up rhymes to go with this almost daily. It’s a catchy little tune. You’re welcome.

 

We lost him six years ago today, but he will never be forgotten. His contributions to the world of music and performance are still reverberating through the artists we have today.

We love you Michael, and we miss you.

Featured on the soundtrack to GTA V, this song is a stone-cold groove. It is perfect for your summer barbecue with your aunties and uncles. Here is your ear-worm for the day. I just added this to “They Sang That.”

Yesterday, I mentioned the “They Sang That” playlist. One of the songs on it is “(Let’s Go) All The Way” by The Whispers.

Never mind that my brother is priming his woman for their very first time; get into these dance moves.

They Sang That!

They Sang That” is a playlist I created on Google Play Music. It’s a collection of songs performed by two or more people. There are currently 54 songs on it, but I continue to add to it regularly.

Enjoy!

MCO 194/JMC 101 Everyday Grammar/Grammar for Journalists is a required course in the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at ASU. It reviews the fundamentals of grammar and teaches some basics of AP (Associated Press) Style. If you do not pass the course, you have to change your major; that is how serious they take it in the Cronkite School.

I am presently taking this course as part of my first summer session courses. Imagine the giggles I let out watching this assigned video that goes over the 8 parts of speech.

This video is both useful and hilarious.
