I was pretty obsessed with this unplugged for quite some time.  

 

Oh my, me too! I had it burned on a CD and it would hardly ever leave my Discman. (Feeling super old as I’m typing this, hahah)

 

@Michaela if it makes you feel any better, I used to have a discman too! And a walkman - even when all my classmates in high school were using MP3 players and ipods. 

Nothing can beat a good old self-made mixtape… :metal_tone3:

c’mon ladies.. 45s and LPs were all that was around when i was as kid .. until the cassette tapes came along … BEFORE the walkman lol.. we all had mix tapes when we could and I even remember getting a band to sign my ‘original’ tape of their album on the cassette label.. if you had a two cassette tape deck you had a lot of friends who wanted to copy tapes lol..

@john.desborough @Nasia that's weird. I was listening to a podcast about that episode of Ed Sullivan at lunchtime. Did you know a wee Davey Jones appeared on the same episode as the Artful Dodger? I Youtubed it and it's a truly terrible performance so I won't share there but instead I will share the trailer for Peter Jackson's Get Back which looks simply mindblowing. What with this, the Covid vaccine and the Playstation 5, I'm looking forward to 2021 hopefully maybe turning into a good year. Dare I dream?

today's musical interlude is brought to you by all those looking at a possible career change due to another round of lockdowns and economic interruptions by COVID.

Happy Easter! 

Black and strong! (but not over-roasted, which i find a little with Starbucks -just my opinion) 

I currently use two companies in Canada - one is called GothRider, their coffee has a much higher caffeination than regular but very very smooth, and another brand from western Canada called Kicking Horse, and i like their Cliff Hanger Espresso and their 454 Horse Power. I have an espresso/capuccino machine and i usually make it as a double long espresso… during the work day.. but Sunday mornings, two single shots into the cup and tossed back like tequila lol

 

how about you sir??

I love a latte in the morning and a cortado after lunch. I'm far from a coffee expert but I can't live without it. I often buy Kenyan coffee in a local shop here in Barcelona, but also Mexican and Guatemalan. Lots of caffeine and very smooth sounds like a perfect combination!

When we were in Alicante in 2014, I would wander down to a small cafe near the beach just after sunrise with a cortado and tostada con tomate .. a nice quiet time of day to watch the colours in the sky and enjoy the world trying to find its rhythm

when i am buying beans in the market here - which seems like a distant memory these days, I try to find a Kona peaberry or Guatemalan as well. 

enjoy your sunday afternoon with your son!

While not a huge fan of some forms of rapping, I saw this short NPR concert by Macklemore and thought i would share - the first song of the series touches a lot about what my eldest daughter has gone through and i think the underlying message of “it’s the love inside us that counts” is key…

What an incredible version! Love it, Des. 

This is part of an incredible Flamenco/Jazz album by our very own Cigala and Cuban piano player Bebo Valdes
