FAVOURITE SUMMER MOVIE SO FAR

What's the difference between North Korea and Heaven? You can at least die and escape North Korea.  A friend directed me to this debate from April 7th between Christopher Hitchens and his younger brother, Peter. I had a good time with the Hitchens family (as I always do), so I figured I'd pass the video along.

OPENING ARGUMENTS ON THE IRAQ WAR

OPENING ARGUMENTS ON THE GOD PROPOSITION

Minnie Riperton's Sure Got Some Pipes on 'er!

Minnie Riperton makes singing this song look and sound easy! I had never seen any live performance footage by her before, so it was fun to find this. She has such a beautiful and interesting voice-- and a 5 and a half octave range, which is pretty insane! I remember when I first heard "Lovin' You" I was a teenager and I thought it was Michael Jackson! She still sometimes sounds like a little boy to me for some reason...

It's sad that her life and career were cut short so quickly by breast cancer. She was only 31 when she died in 1979.

If you are looking to hear more of Minnie, her 1970 album Come To My Garden is flawless.
