The documentary of that full Aretha performaance just came out after being shelved for years in a dispute with her, and because separately recorded sound wasn't in sync. Not sure why that factor would be so infernally difficult that it would hold up finishing the thing. Tedious and tough, maybe, but nearly impossible...? ..from two nights of performance?

Lean on Me is one of the 2 songs that I did my best to sing to my son, 2 years ago when he was 3, to help him sleep. The other is Stand by Me.

Cheri, I don't think any gifts are bad or worse. Sure there's a lot of "What will I do with this?" But bad? No. When someone gives, that in itself is a gift. We might not ever wear that sweater that doesn't suit our style or devour that fruitcake but it was all given with good intent so that is a good thing.

NotARealDoctor, I can't remember exactly how old I was but I'm guessing maybe 8 or 9. An elderly neighbour had gifted crayons and colouring books to me. I made a face and was like, Those are for babies! My parents weren't having that attitude. It was corrected quickly. A gift, liked, wanted or not is a great thing. No such thing as bad gifts.

I was at the Brooklyn Academy of Music a few months ago. There was a show booked as an Alice Coltrane tribute. It was music such as this but not as good. After John Coltrane’s death Alice funded a commune in California. It was multi-spiritual but they did lots of chants like this. The stage was filled with (old(er)?alumni, a synth, stand up bass and drum kit. They chanted these repetitive Om Rama Rama om om chants ad nauseam all night. The hall was half empty about 45 minutes into it. A bore. But also silly.

Jake, three things about CBD and coffee - 1) it appears to be a great way to get stimulation without the aggro effects of coffee alone plus some extra anti-oxidants 2) a little cbd oil goes a long way 3) a recent study of the diamond cbd brand reveals a bunch of crap in it, including synthetic thc (i.e. spice), even though they say 100% cbd oil. sooo, if you go this route, make sure to get a trusted pure organic cbd oil. hth.

And when you hear people genuinely sobbing at the end when *spoiler* King Kong dies? Wow.

@andrewb: As a child in summer day camp at the time of the 1976 film, a Charles Grodin performance was meaningless to me.

That said, as an adult I like watching that dog movie “Beethoven” just to see Charles Grodin get increasingly pissed off at a cute dog.
