We lost two cool artists this week! ;( Yves St. Laurent (so weird, so cool) and Mr. Bo Diddley. I was reading in the Post this morning he was worried during his last days that his legacy would be forgotten. Working in a library with freshman who've never heard The Beatles (no lie) helps me understand his concern.

Dear Mrs. Brown,

Please excuse Katie's crappy punctuation in her first remark.

Thank-you,
Miss Landon

Amen, sister. I can't stop playing that!

Katie - that is frightening. We've been playing or singing The Beatles tunes since the wee one was in utero.

I saw Bo Diddley play in Park City a few years ago. He was really tired and only played a couple of songs; the crowd was really upset, but c'mon, he's old, he was wearing a wrist guard, give him a break!

katie, i think you need to get to work on one of your legendary mixes and school the whippersnappers about good music.

danielle, absolutely give the old man a break. it is silly to expect too much from such an old & ailing man. expecting a heyday preformance is like asking your grandpa to box and then being shocked when you knock his lights out within twenty seconds.
