I'm a big 60's R&B/Motown fan4sure. The Four Tops were great. Wow. That was a long time ago. Four Tops, Temptations, Supremes, The Miracles.... good groups. Gasoline was 30 to 35 cents a gallon, kids living out in the country carried their shotguns and rifles to school and nobody cared, Michael Jackson was black and had a nose, Bill Clinton was smoking dope but was too stupid to inhale. Yep, that was a long time ago....

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
