#GreatAlbums1960s - #DionneWarwick – Make Way for Dionne Warwick (1964). Though she was often tagged as R&B/ soul, Warwick was a true pop singer – bridging torch balladry with urbane cool in ways that felt traditional and modern at once. This LP contains several of the Bacharach-David hits that were her (and their) signatures, including “A House is Not a Home,” “People” and a definitive “Walk on By.” Easy listening in the best sense, Warwick’s music is a warm hug on a fuzzy sofa. #GreatPopAlbums

Here was a man who was known
as an Oregon poet.

He never wasted words, either.
He wrote a poem

Every day, rain or shine, and so
he had some

rain poems and some shine poems
and if people

came to him saying, sir, give us a book
he would turn

and rummage in desk drawers
or grope

along shelves in the kitchen.
Pretty soon

there was their book, bright as
Sunday morning

but sharp, too, like bottle glass.
He'd hand

it to them carefully, carefully.
And it was

their hint. After that they'd have to
look out for themselves,

and that, I guess, was his Oregon

The fog of war is bad, ya'll and the fake videos are getting better. If you see something ... intense, upsetting, something that gives you and emotional reaction and either solidifies your views or makes you question them... hit pause.

I don't care how media savvy you are.

Especially if it's something that confirms your worst fears. Especially that one.

Hit pause. Check the sources. Check them direct from the source site, don't trust thumbnails, or watermarks.

Was kidding. I'm a Yakima boy now living on the Tulalip rez.

She has arrived.
