The Day the Music Died

A memorial
For the day the music died
For three musicians.

 

It’s the 50th anniversary of The Day the Music Died.  Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper died in a plane crash in 1959.  Don McLean wrote a song called “American Pie” that is about this incident, but he’s said to be very closed-mouthed about the meaning of the lyrics.  A quick internet search reveals several interpretations.  Also, ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic did a parody called “The Saga Begins” about the new “Star Wars” movie.

    AH! This is the sort of thing I have been looking for. Doing some research for an article. You should add buttons to the bottom of your posts to digg, stumble, etc your content. I think this is great and want to share it, but as it stands, I?m a lazy lazy person. Just kidding!

    I am so tired of timothy geitner, and bernanke destroying our countries economy. Obama is a cruel hoax, he is a vicous fraud and I hope that this country really starts to listen to what Obama promises, and realizes that he does the exact opposite of everything he promises to the American people. He reversed his position on NAFTA, and he will reverse his position on everything else. He has not repealed the Patriot Act, he actually reauthorized it. Obama has also set aside torture, and Gitmo is not shutting down, he actually wrote that he was thinking about shutting down gitmo a year from now but he won’t. Down with the NWO! http://creazine.com//story.php?title=Kansas_City_Smart_Port___How_It_Is_Destroying_Our_Country

    Please fragrance users, make sure you apply a decent amount of body lotion to the area of your skin that you intend to apply this cologne to. Too often fragrance and cologne users are quick to complain that they cant smell a fragrance just a few hours after applying. Cool Water By Davidoff For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray can most often be remidied by apply a rich lather of lotion, and if this isn’t working then use jasmine oil, petroleum lotion, or anything that holds a decent amount of fatty acids, which help sponge the fragrance scents that can fade with dry skin. http://digg.com/health/Cool_Water_By_Davidoff_For_Men_Eau_De_Toilette_Spray_4_2_OZ

    Well, I have been trying to make a go of it and blogging my brains out, but I certainly have to give you credit. That was excellently done. I don’t always make such clear points and a lot of blogs I read are poorly written and leave wondering just what were they trying to say.

    I find it so hard to come up with new ideas and rewritting someone else’s work can backfire. Particularly if you don’t know whether they are truly an expert in their field. The longer I work on the internet the more I wonder about most of the content. However, to be fair their are many aurthors in the print media out there that espouse their ideas as fact when they are clearly questionable. It is almost as easy to have a book published as an ebook.

    Anyway, thanks for the great blog.
