Essential Mixes

Cultural Offering adds AC/DC to the collection of Essential Mixes. I’ve always been a fan of their blues based hard rock and Kurt assembles a darned good list of their best tracks.

Angus Young (AC/DC)

I’ve been known to assemble my own lists in the form of my Build Your Own Best Of series. Limited to just 15 tracks, these are some of my fave tracks by a particular artist.  I need to bring over the rest of these from my old blog, and I see that my Wilco list from 2008 is woefully out of date…

Outrage

241/365

We are so quick to be outraged. We want to be outraged. We live for the outrage. It can be a  tweet, a headline, a facebook status, it doesn’t really matter. We see our friends post it and assume someone must have actually looked into it, verified it, actually read more, maybe even have done a cursory snopes search.

So we just hit share, we add our own bit of outrage and send it along to others so they can also be outraged. Tiny bits of information, truth or otherwise, flitter around until they become a tornado, leaving a devastating trail of destruction and misinformation in their wake.

I for one am outraged at all this outrage.
