  7. I was strolling around YouTube when I came across a video about Jerry Jeff Walker's "Mr. Bojangles." This was a interesting "behind the music" tale about Jerry Jeff Walker's days as a New Orleans Busker.

Then I saw a related post about "Take It Easy" by The Eagles by "Talking Music..." I looked at his videos and found this video maker featured interviews with band members, etc. So, the next time you're down in Winslow, Arizona, take a looks at the statues honoring the singer-songwriters "who put them on the map."

  17. Someone with time and a fine sense of humor has enlivened the Kelvin Time Line "Star Trek" with a bit of "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home."

Press PLAY for a better movie experience.;) "I Still Hate You" from "Picard," which I gave up when Jean Luc "went Silicon,"
  18. Which 3.5mm jack should you use for your extra fancy Earbuds? Can't find the Headphone jack? There's a Line Out jack, so can I use that, instead?
