Another one gone...


Earth Wind and Fire were the best back in the day.. Soaring harmonies, driving beats, solid percussion with great arrangements. Loved these guys, and still listen to them during workouts.


Rip Maurice.



The founder of soul group Earth, Wind & Fire, Maurice White, has died in the US, his brother has said.

White, 74, died in his sleep in Los Angeles on Thursday morning. He suffered from Parkinson's Disease.

His band had a series of hits including September, Boogie Wonderland, Shining Star and After the Love has Gone.

The singer-songwriter was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1992 but his condition was reported to have got worse in recent months.

Earth, Wind & Fire were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000, and Maurice was individually inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2010.

question......why do we say Rest In Peace when we should all Live In Peace.....?



cold wind in Huahin, only 23 C


My guess is that life used to be pretty fucking hard, beginning to end, with only occasional exceptions - and so the grand vision, the dream of dreams, is to go somewhere and do fucking nothing at all...

Supreme Court Justice Antonine Scalia was found dead at a west Texas ranch from an apparent heart attack. He was 79 years old. That's going to tip the Court to moderate/ liberal, at least until the next President takes office for 4-8 years. I wonder what happens to the cases that the Court heard this term and a decision is expected in June. There will be a lot of 4-4 ties now.
