The Beat Goes On...

              Just one question: Why the horse-drawn plow?

The drumbeat of mortality, that is. Yet another icon fell to the Grim Reaper last week, as Paul Kantner made the inevitable transition to eternity. Being that he was a musician, and not really part of the film/television industry, his passing might not seem a logical subject for a post -- but this one isn't really about Paul Kantner. With the echoes of mortality still reverberating through my head, his death reminds me of an old post that included a link to an early tune by Kantner's band, the Jefferson Airplane.*

It seems appropriate right now, for a lot of reasons.

But enough with all this death, and dwelling on it. Sometimes you just have to get up and change the channel, and since I don't have a new post ready to go, here's a link to that older, sunnier offering:

 A Good Day in Hollywood.  

Here in the depths of winter, I think we can all use something a little bright and sunny right now.

Or not.  It's your call.

* For any of you young whippersnappers who might not know, this band was a very big deal back in the days of my youth, when I rode a dinosaur to and from high school through the snow, uphill, both ways...
