Springsteen for today...Happy 4th gang

Mobile webpage rendering for DU

Anyone else having issues lately with the way DU is rendering on iPhone? The usual mobile look is wonky on my phone and I've checked my settings to confirm the page should be loading for mobile. It's a bit frustrating because posting and reading the page is extremely difficult the way it's being rendered.

Update: it's currently working as intended. Weird

'Tis the Season...if you know, you know 🤣🤣

A to my personal favorite DU thread of all time!

"The Day Before Thanksgiving"

Pouring on out for "The Killer"...RIP Jerry Lee

There's very few people I've met in my life who simultaneously encapsulate the best of saints and the worst of sinners...Jerry Lee was one of those individuals. Tonight I'd like to spin one for "The Killer"; a man of incredible talent who was perhaps his own worst enemy. He was a man who acknowledged his flaws, cursed himself for them, yearned for redemption, and had little time for critics. Complex is an understatement...but the music lives on. For the "Last One Standing"

If you're curious about just how far off the rails Tulsi Gabbard has gone

I have the distinct displeasure of having to pass by the "Huckabee" theater where Mike Huckabee's television show is filmed most every day. Outside the complex, there is a large digital marquee which lists upcoming guests. I've seen Boebert, MTG, pretty much any RW nutjob you can imagine listed as guests previously. Tonight when I passed by, "Tulsi Gabbard" was listed as tomorrow nights guest. 🙄🙄...I'm not surprised, but I did find it interesting and somewhat enlightening.

John Prine's 78th Birthday and Legacy celebrated by Allstar lineup at Ryman

Two years, six months and three days after his death, one of America’s most celebrated songwriters, John Prine, had his life celebrated on what would have been his 76 birthday at the Ryman Auditorium in his home city of Nashville, Tenn. The tribute concert featured some of the most renowned musicians in the country, all of whom were, without a doubt, inspired by his life’s work.

Monday night’s gathering was a part of a weeklong celebration for Prine billed as You Got Gold Celebrating the Life & Songs of John Prine, which included six sold-out shows throughout The Music City hosted by his family and independent label, Oh Boy Records.


For those who are interested, the show was live-streamed by Mandolin and is still available to watch on the site. The show was unbelievable with an incredible lineup. Brandi Carlisle, Bonnie Raitt, Jason Isbell, Lyle Lovett, Chris Isaak, Dwight Yoakam, Bob Weir and Ramblin Jack Elliott, Margo Price, Tyler Childers...you get the drift

This album turned 40 yesterday...

In 1982, Bruce Springsteen recorded a set of demos on a four track by himself. Attempts to record the songs with the E-street band just couldn't capture the same feel of the music and lyrics and so the demos were released as they were: raw, emotional, and heartfelt. The result was "Nebraska", released Sept 30 1982. This is my favorite from that release:

Since it would have been Otis' birthday today

Luke Bell...RIP to a talented troubled soul
