Like A Rolling Stone

From Gerard and his Boomer Anthem Series: Like A Rolling Stone.

I can’t believe I didn’t have this on my own calendar. It really is one of the best pop tunes ever recorded. It still sounds wonderful today.

I would give you the last week of my life if you allowed me to listen to this song on the last day of my life.

Ticket listeners will know what that sentence above means.

Top 11 Benefits of the Star Tribune Buying the City Pages

The whole list is great. A sample:

10)  Can more fairly present both sides of controversial political issues in Minnesota, that of the Democrats and that of the communists

Good stuff. A great version of one of The Band’s tunes.

Anonymous Commenters at Reason in Trouble

Ken at Popehat.

This continuous drumbeat of obvious overreach by the government is depressing.

Hit and Run over at Reason is a great read. The commenters are among the most politically incorrect you will find. I think they’re, for the most part, hilarious.

Always will be Bruce. Always will be a Man

I’m posting this because everybody else is, and well… it’s funny.

Man. Bruce


It is nonsense on stilts to think of this person as any other than the man known as Bruce Jenner.

For those of you that read Sailer, it really is funny that Bissinger is the journo on this article.

Sports, Culture and Other Stuff

Heh… This could be me writing. Although the bit about being around the internet since the 80’s would be an exaggeration.  I started this page to work on writing and to learn internet technology. I imagine that in some small way both skill have improved. From The Z Blog:

Years ago I found  Mencius Moldbug and decided his thing was probably not  for me. The main reason is I am not sitting around reading 16,000 word blog posts. I’ve been doing this internet thing in one fashion or another since the 80’s and I’m not easily impressed. In the early days there were a lot of young males thinking they were going to change the world. They’re old men now and the world has not changed. That and I’m not much of a joiner.

Do go read the whole thing.

I am interested in a lot of different types of stuff

Just look at my blog roll category labeled “The Stuff I Check Regularly,” to see what I mean. Heck you can through the “Economics” section in there too, as those guys post on a wide range of stuff.

From The Selvedge Yard, we get some info cool new shirts:

But wait, there’s more!

Also from the Selvedge Yard, Busty Betty Brosmer:


The guy at The Selvedge Yard, Jon Patrick, is a great chronicler of the Southern California I remember as a kid living there in the 60’s and 70’s.

Kling’s Three Laws

A good post:

1. Sometimes it’s this way, and sometimes it’s that way.

2. The data are insufficient.

3. The methodology is flawed.

As I’ve aged, I’ve come to embrace this sort of thinking about all the arguments I was so certain of 20 years ago. It is too bad that those that make policy have not learned any humility in their approach to problem solving.

Best Russian Dash Cam Video Ever…
