Thomas Kincade. A news report said that his works are so popular that it's estimated a Kincade picture hangs on the wall of every twentieth American home.

Looks like Jay-bird beat you to the punch, just around the corner of the previous page. Regardless, I lift my hat to the Master-interviewer one last time.

Levon's gone ...

.. up on Cripple Creek (which I'm listening to as I write this). Rock on!

Expats are especially sad, and not just those who drove Old Dixie down.

The tributes to him are legion, just as he was legend.

And to top it off: Now would be a good time to relive "The Last Waltz" (The Band's farewell concert at the Winterland Auditorium in San Francisco in November 1976 – movie released in 1978, out on DVD).

Much sadness.

Maurice Sendak, Author of Splendid Nightmares, Dies at 83

“Dear Mr Sendak,
How much does it cost to get to where the wild things are? If it is not expensive, my sister and I would like to spend the summer there.”

(What higher praise ...?)

That's one of the "splendid nightmares" the headline is referring to ("splendid nightmares" being a description rather than a title).

He was one of the truly great artists. I have his recording of Schubert's "Die Winterreise" (with Gerald Moore accompanying) and only listened to it a few times because the performance was so emotionally devastating that I couldn't bear it. That combo's recording of Schumann's "Dichterliebe" was equally intense. My then-fiancée (now my wife of 44 years) had studied that piece for a listening exam (she was a music major) and met me after the exam, completely in tears.

He was one of a kind and will be sorely missed.

The CBC National News did quite a nice a piece on him this evening....even had an image of the "Flash-Matic". It looked like a green hand-held hair dryer.
