What an exit
#24 truly was the GOAT
She bears her full heart, soul, and what all evers left for this small and appreciative audience
Exoneration is too inadequate a word,
the English language is lacking here
(Im sure German has the perfect word for it lol)
This picture captures the moment so well
Its the Joy of achieved justice,
Its the exuberance of rewarded persistence,
Its the manifestation of the indomitable unbreakable human spirit shared by greats like Gandhi, MLK, and Joan of Arc 👍
Instrumental music had been easier to compress, but Vega's voice sounded distorted and unnatural in early versions of the format. Brandenburg would end up making hundreds of tweaks to the MP3 compression algorithm to make Vega's voice clearer. He would later even get to meet Suzanne Vega and hear the song performed live.

As one of the lucky fans to have experienced one of their live 80s Hollywood shows, Im blessed with a treasured once in a lifetime memory.
The original movie was inspired by the magic that original tour was generating, and it had to be captured and made into a film.
And she was.
A film was made which would bring the movie audience to its feet, releasing the Dancing Energy bubbling up like a n uncorked champagne bottle !
the greatest concert movie of all time
Now, I its been 40 years And the film is being re-released.
Talking Heads Appear Together for the First Time in 21 Years at TIFF
The band talked with Spike Lee at the Toronto International Film Festival about the making of their classic 1984 concert film
I discovered a handy trick that works nicely, and takes very little effort and time.
Objective: Display an image from Twitter (NOT the tweet itself), and include the original link only.
Here is a demonstration:
1. Right-click on image in tweet (iPad select/hold).
Choose option to open the image in your browser app.
Select/copy the pics URL.
Remove the ? And all characters to its right.
Add to the end: .jpg
You now have a link that will render the picture !
2. In the original tweet, click the icon to select and copy the link of the tweet.
Trim off the tracking characters (the ? And junk to its right)
Add this to your post.
You can see all this in my demo post above.
EDIT: Also see post 6 for rendering a X-based tweet now
I was taught the slide rule in 8th grade
I learned how to do long division with a pencil and paper in 6th grade
I learned cursive writing in 1st grade
In HS I was taught how to write a research paper by using the library, index cards with sources of the information and details I discovered.
With changing tools, inevitably comes changing needs of what skills to learn.
Adjustments must follow to what and how we teach our youth.
I was breakfasting in a cafe, and likely talking too loud.
I was vociferously voicing my objections to my mates about the ongoing drumbeat of arguments (suspected lies) pushing us towards war
Another table the diners all got up to leave, except one older man turned from their party and came over to my table; glaring daggers at me, he screamed through clinched teeth:
I WAS IN VIETNAM!!!
and stalked off.
Leaving a suddenly silent restaurant behind.
