The Story of the Rolling Stones: A Selection of Documentaries on the Quintessential Rock-and-Roll Band

The Rolling Stones define the rock-and-roll band, as they have for nearly six decades now. Exactly how they’ve done so is thoroughly documented, not least by the band’s own expansive and still-growing catalog of songs and albums (all of which I happen to have spent the last few months listening through). But the story of the Stones continues to compel, told and re-told as it is in every form of media produced by each era through which the band has passed: books, articles, podcasts, and a...

#TrackoftheDay: “You Can Find the Feeling”

The Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir AttarMorocco (2000) The world found out about this group in the 1950s, apparently. And they went wide when Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones produced an album of theirs. I found out about them when this song closed out the soundtrack for the excellent Tarsem Singh movie, The Cell. And it’s been on my musical todo list to do a deeper dive on their stuff. If you seek them out, be aware the group split into two different groups in the 199...

A Visual History of The Rolling Stones Documented in a Beautiful, 450-Page Photo Book by Taschen

There is a certain look that screams rock ‘n’ roll—one part outlaw biker, one part psychedelic magician, one part pimp, one part circus performer…. But where did it come from? We could trace it back to Link Wray, Little Richard, Elvis, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. But the Rolling Stones refined and perfected the look, as they refined and perfected the slurred, shambling barroom blues that became a signature sound at their peak. Even punks who rejected the rock star image couldn’t help looking like Ke...

Microsoft now lets you bring your own data types to Excel

Over the course of the last few years, Microsoft started adding the concept of ‘data types’ to Excel, that is, the ability to pull in geography and real-time stock data from the cloud, for example. Thanks to its partnership with Wolfram, Excel now features over 100 of these data types that can flow into a spreadsheet. But you won’t be limited to only these pre-built data types for long. Soon, Excel will also let you bring in your own data types. That means you can have a ‘customer’ data type,...

#2 Alabama Has Won 13 Straight Against Tennessee, CBS’ Brian Jones Doesn’t See That Streak Breaking Saturday

(CBS Local)- Second-ranked Alabama passed its first major test of the season last weekend, pulling away from Georgia in the second half to win 41-24 and remain unbeaten on the season. Now, they head to Knoxville to face a Tennessee team that, after losing to Georgia two weeks ago, came unraveled last week in a blowout loss to Kentucky 34-7. The matchup appears to be a game of teams heading in opposite directions, as the Tide have only continued to improve offensively while the Volunteers have re...

#2 Alabama Faces #3 Georgia: ‘Can Mac Jones Find His Guys Against Speedy Georgia Defense?’ Asks CBS Sports’ Adam Zucker

(CBS Local)- Alabama and Georgia’s recent history would suggest that Saturday night’s tilt would be fun regardless of the teams’ respective standing nationally.

The last two times the teams have met, Alabama has engineered a second half comeback to dash the Bulldogs hopes of a national championship and an SEC title. This year, things are a bit different.

GOP California Senators Vote Remotely For First Time After COVID-19 Exposure

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — For a few horrifying seconds, Scott Wilk thought everyone had heard him. The California Republican state senator was trying to cast his vote on a bill from his apartment in Sacramento, having been barred from the Capitol along with most of his GOP colleagues because of their exposure to the coronavirus a few days earlier. It was the first time in the state Legislature’s 158-year history lawmakers were voting without being present in the chamber, and things were not goin...

California To Let Absent Lawmakers Vote During Pandemic

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The California Assembly changed its rules on Monday to let lawmakers at high risk for the coronavirus vote on bills without being present in the chamber, defying advice from the Legislature’s own lawyers who say the new rule is likely illegal. It’s the first time in the state Assembly’s 170-year history that absent lawmakers will be allowed to vote on bills. Assembly leaders say the rule is necessary to protect the health and safety of its members after a coronavirus ou...

‘Life and Death of Brian Jones’ Documentary Digs Deep Into the Rolling Stones Co-Founder’s Demise

California Voters Reject $15 Billion School Upgrade Bond

LOS ANGELES (AP) — California voters have rejected a $15 billion bond to renovate California’s aging schools, the only statewide measure on last week’s primary ballot. Proposition 13 promised to provide funds for new construction and repairs at campuses dealing with problems like leaky roofs, old wiring and toxic mold. It needed a simple majority to pass. But the “no” votes had a comfortable lead immediately after the March 3 election and only tightened slightly as several million additional bal...

The Surreal Saga of Disgraced GOP Congressman Duncan Hunter and His Campaign’s Missing $250K

The writers’ room for this season of being alive really balled out when they dreamed up the Duncan Hunter arc. Over the past few years, as details about the conservative congressman’s tenure representing California’s 50th district emerged, the story swung so rapidly from infuriating to hilarious it could have been plucked from an overzealous procedural. Here was a candidate who looked like a Golf Channel pundit, the successor to a West Coast political dynasty, who took charge of a Republican str...

Are You Related To Chrissie Hynde?

Hynde was born on September 7, 1951, in Akron, Ohio, the daughter of a part-time secretary and a Yellow Pages manager. She graduated from Firestone High School in Akron, but stated that “I was never too interested in high school. I mean, I never went to a dance, I never went out on a date, I never went steady. It became pretty awful for me. Except, of course, I could go see bands, and that was the kick. I used to go to Cleveland just to see any band. So I was in love a lot of the time, but mostl...

Watch the Last Time Peter Tork (RIP) & The Monkees Played Together During Their 1960s Heyday: It’s a Psychedelic Freakout

Peter Tork died yesterday at age 77. You might not have heard the news over the deafening alarms in your social media feeds lately. But a muted response is also noteworthy because of the way Tork’s fame imploded at the end of the sixties, at a time when he might have become the kind of rock star he and his fellow Monkees had proved they could become, all on their own, without the help of any studio trickery, thanks very much. The irony of making this bold statement with a feature film wa...

50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too. But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youn...
