Has the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame “Jumped The Shark”?

Has the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame “Jumped The Shark”
So….. today (9/23/2009) the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced the nominees for the 2010 class… Criteria include "the influence and significance of the artists’ contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll. "

On the list this year:


They’re kidding, right?? KISS?? The cartoon band, big on flash and showmanship, but oh so little when it actually comes to music? What a joke. On the other hand, at least Kiss isn’t as boring as every inductee from last year

OK, Time to voice opinions, if there’s anybody out there… In you opinions:

1) Who, among the current inductees, is least deserving?
2) Who. Among those not inducted, is most deserving?

Voice your opinions!

It's a strange strange world we live in.....

I have no idea why this song popped into my head this evening... but it did. And easy to find on youtube! Meanwhile, 4 Jacks and A Jill has to be on e of the worst group names in history.

An oldie, but I don't think its been posted before.

Darkness, Darkness, No Color, No Contrast...

Ok, so I don't know exactly where that line came from (the one in the title). I'd expect a song, that's where most of what pops into head comes from.... A quick google says it's lyrics from Joni Mitchell's "Hissing Of Summer Lawns". Possible, but odd, since that's not among the Joni Mitchell stuff in my collection.... I was thinking something from the narration of Rick Wakeman's "Journey To The Center Of The Earth". Whatever.

Before I got sidetracked, the point of this post was SUPPOSED to be that the days are getting shorter, and the mornings are getting darker. Sunrise this morning was 30 miniutes after my alarm. Makes me want to sleep in.

Ohio River, from Leavenworth, IN

We took a short vacation to southern Indiana back in June. I'm still WAY behind processing photos, but here's one. This was from the Overlook Restaurant, when they have one really cool overlook!! We had a great lunch before heading off to do some more sightseeing.
