Let us be clear and this is not trying to be overly dramatic: Thousands of people will die if the Republican health care bill becomes law.

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?

Oh the douchery. It hurts to be a part of this. Is disengagement from all media the only way to avoid being part of Trumpworld?

I wonder what consumers of music imagine musicians doing with their work once it is complete... maybe exactly what I describe? Don't know.I suspect I am not unique in this way. You swim in the waters of your own creations and then when you step back onto land it is forever.I essentially never listen to anything I've created once it exists out in the wide world.Recent tweets have made me think about my relationship with my artistic output... which is to say there is virtually no relationship.
