This Day in History|1946
Patti Smith





Without Robert Mapplethorpe, Patti Smith wouldn't be the the muse that she was to the most important photographer of the 1970s and 1980s.

And, more than likely, without Patti Smith, Robert Mapplethorpe's career would have gone in an entirely different direction.

Still, one cannot underestimate the power of Patti's rendition of EASTER and her signature, BECAUSE THE NIGHT.

T-500 days and counting

There's a reason why I'm keeping tabs on how many days to go until I turn 50.

When you have goals you want to make sure you accomplish,
you need to keep your eyes on the clock.

And today marks 500 days remaining until I turn 50.

Stoopit Phags!

Really.

Choose your battles.

So Obama has Ric(k) Warren delivering the Inaugural Prayer.

What if he lifts the "don't ask, don't tell" policy?

Either way, don't ask Anderson.

He's asking, ain't telling.

Transparency, indeed!

The Real Wonder Woman!

Number 1.
This Day in Music History
December 1977 – Jan 1978


Decades before Madonna's CONFESSIONS ON A DANCEFLOOR (continuous mix), Donna Summer's 2-plate, 4-sided retelling of Cinderella simultaneously closed 1977 and opened 1978 with a hard-thumping, keyboard-driven showcase of incredible dance music fused with one of disco's original queens' strongest siren calls!

I'm stunned no one played the race card yet. It this were The States, it'd already be chock full of lawyers! Reminds me of Ray Nagen and "chocolate city." Does this make Grace the "chocolate mayor?" Think they're gearing up for a limited run of Obama-pops?
