Pull up a seat, pour a drink, pass around some snacks, and welcome to another night at Club Zero. I heard that allegedly Disqus is really, really, really addressing our missing upvotes and Low Rep status but, don’t hold your breath. Obviously, the CopyCat bot knows Disqus better than Disqus, as he claimed.
But on a positive, we no longer have to deal with 5 o’clock Charlie’s dumb ass downvoting everyone; he and his socks are dead now that Disqus shows who downvotes comments.
So, the Senate Impeachment Trial begins Tuesday; we’ll do our best to bring you a live stream of it or live updates. I am still not sure of how it will all work out and neither are they.
Regardless, I hope you will join us to watch a bunch of unpatriotic, craven shitheads, commonly known as Republicans, not do jack about the most corrupt ‘president’ in modern times. He gets a pass and will repeat his behavior because he suffers no consequences.
Here’s some music history:
1985 – Newspaper USA Today took a poll of its readers to ask where the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame should be built. The winner, as you know, was Cleveland, Ohio!!!
1986 –Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Gladys Knight saw their recording of “That’s What Friends Are For” hit number 1 in the US. The song was originally on the soundtrack to the movie, Night Shift, as performed by Rod Stewart. Warwick suggested doing it as a duet with Stevie Wonder and then Gladys Knight was added to the mix. To finish off the song, Elton John was asked to sing the final chorus. It became the biggest selling song of the year and all proceeds raised were donated to AIDS research.
2007 – Ted Nugent caused a stir at the inaugural ball of Texas Governor Rick Perry when he appeared on stage wearing a T-shirt adorned with the Confederate flag and then embarking on an angry monologue about people who don’t speak English. The 58-year-old rocker also brought a fake machine gun on stage with him. 😡😡
2016 -67-year-old Glenn Frey, co-founder of The Eagles, died of rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia while recovering from intestinal surgery. Along with helping the band place eighteen songs on the Billboard Top 40 between 1972 and 1995, Frey also reached the chart seven times as a solo artist.
2018 – The Recording Academy’s National Board of Trustees added several new songs to The Grammy Hall Of Fame. Those included were David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”, Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You”, Queen’s “A Night At The Opera”, Linda Ronstadt’s “Heart Like A Wheel” and Sam Cooke’s “Bring It On Home To Me.”
