Raining in the East PHX Valley again tonight ... thought the recent rains might be over but nope

Ever since I posted my joyful 'Rain' by the Cult video 3 weeks ago, after a LONG dry spell, it's been raining off and on down here (like normal monsoons for the first time in 6 or 7 summers), and temps have been reasonable every day (topping out around 100F), and it's sure been nice.

Pretty sure my video had something to do with it

patty griffin - go wherever you wanna go (live-2013) because this amazing artist doesn't get her due

more people should know of Patty cause she's dope y'all.

as an aside, this song makes me cry ... thinking of my pops I lost awhile back. such a beautiful track.



You get an idea of her influence from her Wiki:

Griffin's songs have been recorded by numerous artists, including the Irish-born singer Maura O'Connell ("Long Ride Home" ), Linda Ronstadt ("Falling Down" ), The Chicks ("Truth No. 2", "Top of the World", "Let Him Fly", "Mary" ), Bette Midler, Melissa Ferrick and Missy Higgins ("Moses" ), Beth Nielsen Chapman, Christine Collister, and Mary Chapin Carpenter ("Dear Old Friend" ), Jessica Simpson ("Let Him Fly" ), Martina McBride ("Goodbye" ), Emmylou Harris ("One Big Love", "Moon Song" ), Bethany Joy Galeotti ("Blue Sky" ), the Wreckers ("One More Girl" ), Keri Noble and Ruthie Foster ("When It Don't Come Easy" ), Joan Osborne ("What You Are" ), Solomon Burke ("Up to the Mountain" ), and Miranda Lambert ("Getting Ready" ).

placebo - nancy boy (studio - 1997) serious boundary-pushing androgyny for 1997



Been refreshing my mind on their catalog as it's been awhile since I heard this stuff, and these guys are really pretty badass ...



This is a smoking-good cover of this classic

LEON - surround me (studio-2017) if this classy, sexy come-on doesn't get you in a good mood ...

Then, well ... I hope it's not permanent , cause, something is maybe not be quite right at this moment

This song has a total INXS - Not Enough Time vibe to it ... a song I of course

So, this shirt I ordered on Amazon ... as a guitar nerd I love it, but ...

So the idea here is there's a lot of types of guitars, and they have distinctive sounds as any guitarist knows ... but then after I got it I started wondering if maybe it's ... I dunno ... somehow flippant/insensitive?

It's not this exact one but it's much like it ... what do you guys think?
