  1. Linda Ronstadt hasn't sung in 10 years because of her Parkinson's disease. This video is a great look at how she's doing today, which can be summed up in two words:

    Acceptance

    Uncompromising

    She retains a huge fan base that really connected with her music and her struggle.

     


  2. I feel like we've finally passed peak Christmas. Until recently, there was a steady Christmas creep, with stores putting out their displays earlier and earlier, and radio stations playing Christmas music before the first snow. This is the first year I can remember the post-Thanksgiving aftermath not being all about Christmas. Black Friday also seemed more mellow, with less mania as people realized they could just order gifts on ye olde Internet. 

    Of course, this is all anecdotal. :spiky:


  3. Seems young people have levels of anxiety and depression that exceed those of previous generations. One thing about these suicide songs is that they often come with information on how to get help. The Logic song 1-800-273-8255 is the best example. That's the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which has gotten a huge increase in call volume. We reached out to them about the impact of the song; they explained that whenever Logic performs it, they get a spike. They coordinate to make sure additional staff is on hand.
