Uploaded on Jul 7, 2011

On her Taking Chances Tour, Celine Dion invited Charice to sing a duet with her at Madison Square Garden on September 15, 2008. They sang “Because You Loved Me” to a sold out crown of 18,000 dedicated to Charice’s mom. Before her last song, Celine introduced Charice and tried to calm the nervous Charice in a 7 minute monologue.

It must be the beginning of NASCAR Season

 

The beginning of the NASCAR season starts at Daytona on February 21st.

I was reminded of that fact when I went to Lowes this morning to get some bird seed for the feeder and some other household items.

I looked at my receipt on the way out the door and was pretty amazed:

What are the odds of my purchase being the exact same number as the Lowe’s NASCAR number?

I have no life to notice things like this.

A-LISTING: JORDAN SPEITH’S NEW MANSION WILL BLOW YOUR MIND

Before you go any further I would like to remind and/or warn you that the young superstar who just bought this $8.5 million dollar mansion of your fantasies is indeed 22 years old.

That’s right. A kid born halfway through 1993 just bought a 16,665 square foot dream home that I’m pretty sure has six different living rooms. It’s hard to tell since it’s far too palatial for us mere mortals to fathom.

We finally offer an opinion on Hotel California

I have been running this idea of trying to offer an opinion on the great song Hotel California.

Now that the great Glenn Frey has passed, I finally offer up this idea.

In the title track of their hit 1976 album, “Hotel California,” the Eagles warn listeners of the two most dangerous things known to man – women and California. Or, to be more precise, California girls. They turn the Beach Boys’ plea from 1965 (“I wish they all could be California girls”) on its head. Apparently something drastic happened to girls from the Golden State between 1965 and 1976. By the time they wrote “Hotel California,” the Eagles had come to the conclusion that the “cutest girls in the world” also came with a lot of baggage.

RIP Glenn Frey (in shock)

So I just heard the news. Glenn Frey has passed on to that next plane. Simply unbelievable, at the early age (to me) of 67 years old. Just 2 years older than me. I’m sort of just getting over the death of David Bowie, now the great Glen Frey. Just unbelievable.

Want to know what all this guy has accomplished?

Glenn Lewis Frey (/fr/; November 6, 1948 – January 18, 2016) was an American musician, singer, songwriter, producer and actor, best known as a founding member of the Eagles. Frey played guitar with Eagles as well as piano and keyboards and sang lead vocals on many Eagles hits such as “Take It Easy“, “Peaceful Easy Feeling“, “Tequila Sunrise“, “Already Gone“, “Lyin’ Eyes“, “New Kid in Town“, and “Heartache Tonight“.

Wow. Just wow. I know I don’t contribute to the website much anymore, heck I dunno if anyone ever reads it. But one of the main reasons I still pay for a space on the internet, is to journal and record moments in my life. This is one of them. Glenn Frey created a ton of memories for me. My entire adult life.

five American Music Awards, and six number one albums in their kitty. This made the Eagles one of the most successful musical acts of the 1970s.

I guess you could say an icon has passed. I wonder how fellow singer and Texan Don Henley is feeling and thinking about right now? He was another of the original Eagles.

I’m having a hard time about now, thinking about the musical artists that I grew up with, dying off all of a sudden. Is this the same for my generation? Is my music dying too? How will we be remembered. Such a tragic loss.

Rest in peace Glenn.
