'Ace of Spades,' Motorhead  :)
One of the truly classic rock songs that have held up over time. Lemmy is alright. When Motorhead came to town and I had no idea who they were, he would hang out at whatever dive bar was near where they were playing. All non-chalant. Never acted like an idiot, or creep, or anything.

I swear he and Kool Herc once played a game of pool in this stupid bar once. But my memories are starting to overlay one another, so I won't swear to this.

The Art of the Kvetch: Jewish Humor as Secularism (especially Michael Wex, the second speaker ~ minute 18)
Is he really any good? I sorta heard an interview with him for half a minute five years ago or so. He sounded like he was full of it.

Anyway, I was trying to explain to someone the difference between kvetching and complaining recently. Maybe Wex is actually worth reading. I look for a pdf to preview of something of his and didn't find anything.
Years ago I listened to Just say nu and liked it. I've given the CD it was on to someone never to get it back... Since then I've been trying to find any of his stuff myself, but to no avail.

He's the only contemporary Yiddishist I know of, besides Dovid Katz.

Yiddish might soon be extinct, I'm afraid. A shod!

Seems youtube's full of him in the meantime: Just Say Nu by Michael Wex--Audiobook Excerpt

Lemmy is awesome. He is a very powerful and uncompromising man. His bar is extremely high as far as making music and living life.
He is 70 or so and still releasing fiery albums and living the same way he always did.

Plus, Lemmy was in Hawkwind for their best albums.

Goo Goo Dolls- "Name"

There isn't an emotion you can feel that Goo Goo Dolls doesn't have a song for.
