One of the purest driven rock 'n' roll acts in the past four decades.
Each player is a virtuoso.
Here they grab a Tom Waits song by the horns and ride.
From Ride This: The Covers

and then this gem, the better "live" version by Los Lobos,
best known to all Dead fans from 1971.


LEGONG (1933 created,1935 released silent film)


Poets like Lew Welch and James Dickey used to write for ad agencies. "Coke Is It" and "RAID Kills Bugs Dead" etc.

I'd like to think a poet, blessed with humor, wrote this little diddly found below:

Sandwiches have tremendous potential for loading you up with nutrients and keeping you slim. Unfortunately, too few actually deliver. Check out this handy list of The Worst Sandwiches in America to find out which ones make you large and which ones make you lean.

Domino’s Chicken Carbonara Breadbowl Pasta

Domino’s may not boast many drive-thru windows, but its food is most certainly made with speed in mind. This edible bowl is just one extension of that. It allows busy customers to simply gobble up the whole meal, bowl and all. No dishes. (Next thing you know, restaurants will be giving you edible menus and serving you soda from an edible cup. When you’re done, maybe you can just eat the table and chair, too.) This pasta-filled bowl has two days' worth of fat and still manages to squeeze in 1,500 calories of pure carbohydrates!
