    The funniest thing is that Eric Clapton covered a TON of Bob Marley's songs and they became small hits. And the ****ed up part is some of those folks when they hear the originals, they ***** over how a black artist cannot be original and covered his music. I'm like WTF?

    When I found out Bob Marley did the originals I thought they were better. Not that Eric did a bad job I just think it's lacking something.

    Oh dear God save us.
    Those ***** politicians of ours are about to fill an application for joining EU. Now how stupid do they think European politicians are, they'd sure had to be more stupid then ours to welcome us in EU.

    I just don't get it how do they expect a country consisted of 13 parts, with 13 governments, 220+ ministers and 3 presidents to be allowed to join EU.

    Every day new humiliation.
    I'd be surprised if any county joins the EU in the next few years. It's too much of a mess currently.

    This is a good representation of what I hear when there are sports interviews on TV.

    I really don't like Eric Clapton's covers of Bob Marley's songs. Luckily, the only one that really gets a lot of airplay is "I Shot the Sheriff".

    Clapton had a lot of hits covering JJ Cale's songs.

    If someone really knows the history of rock music, he or she will know that many more songs originally written by black artists were covered by white artists, not the other way around. Many songs especially by 50s, 60s, and 70s artists such as Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, and Janis Joplin were written by black artists.

    Hahah that's true. There's a few of them that you could describe as a bright person, others, well, not so much.

    Altough there are Klitschko brothers and they're doctors of some sort.

    His covers were fine, but not even in the same galaxy as the original. I say that not from my own personal and cultural bias, but as someone who likes music and can tell a great cover when I here one.

    That's why I prefer to listen to Fats Domino, Little Richard and those guys when I want the old school rock n roll. They still don't get enough credit.

    Morning folks. Back again at work. I'd complain about how damn cold it is, but that sort of complaining won't get me warmer.

    It's cold and sunny here, which is so wrong because you stand in the sun and only feel not as cold as you would be in the shade...

    There's this one lady at my work from the US who always seems to be having some drama. It leads me to think if some people just attract it...

    Then again it just could be that I'm not used to Americans anymore... LOL!

    Speaking of drama, you still have the Peppy Le Pew coworker we told you to stick an air freshener on his desk so he'd stop smelling up the office?

    Man you still don't read well... Or you forget how to interpret.

    I was suggesting you listen to more music to learn about it. Broaden your music pallet. Listen to some older stuff to lean about it.

    In no way was I suggesting anything else.

    Are you a touch sensitive today?
