Does "row the boat" really have to be our thing now? I mean, I like kids music as much as anyone, but really right for @GopherFootball ???

@Mike_Eagle I fear there is no good time for that. @JasonIsbell If by this you mean, "Fuck Alzheimer's!" I am right with you. Let's find a cure.

There must have been such frustration among songwriter contemporaries of Dylan. "Shit there he goes again with another masterpiece!"Garth Hudson's organ sounds continuously as if it's about to take flight. Thankfully he stays earthbound so we can hear him.It would appear that the ice in Nashville is awful. Can anyone verify?
