Another outlet to watch their outstanding coverage of Egypt.
Skip to about 3:30 to get to Prince’s solo but the entire performance is worth it if you have the time.
And I don’t agree with the YouTube title that this is the greatest guitar solo ever. Not even close really. But it’s good and I keep forgetting that Prince is actually a really solid guitarist and not just a purple stain of batshit insanity.
The greatest live solo ever is in the middle of a slowed down Red House by Jimi Hendrix which can be heard on the Live at Winterland album…. OR right here starting at 5:15.
Apparently not in Arizona.
At a gun show in Phoenix , Arizona on January 23, 2011, an undercover investigator bought a Glock 9mm similar to the one used by the shooter in Tucson 15 days before and three 33-round extended magazines, no questions, no background check.
Had some problems today. I upgraded my supercache plugin and everything seemed fine but on some browsers, readers were being served a page from January 13th. I think I’ve fixed it now…
From The National Post:
Canadian Catholic bishops are cautioning married couples to not get too focused on sexual acts other than intercourse, calling them a potential misuse of sex that ignore God’s intentions.
A pastoral letter released this week by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops calls on married couples to lead “chaste” lives — not meaning “celibate” but approaching sex with “purity of mind as well as body” and respecting the dignity of the other person.
“That is why the sexual act has to be unitive and procreative and why some kinds of activity are not chaste,” the letter said. “Though pleasure may be present, some acts are a misuse of sex when they fall short of what God intended.”
The letter — most of it is designed to advise young people on why it is important to avoid sexual encounters outside of marriage — was the result of a commission headed by Archbishop Michael Miller of Vancouver.
