Nothing to apologize for here, I think. A good sign for the weekend, I hope.

Actually, the Rare Earth reminds me that the night before I discovered the lovely and scholarly Ms. Hughes, I finally learned something about George Clinton & Parliament & Funkadelic. I was mostly aware of the late '70s, extra-weird stuff, and wasn't really sure how to get started. But - again on PBS, Independent Lens - this documentary gave me the whole history, and a desire to start exploring.

Christ. NPR, PBS, and baseball. I'm not an old man, you know. Those Bouncing Souls up there are honest-to-god punk.
