This performance is actually from last year but the song is timeless.

Hillsdale is one of the few American colleges where no one worries about political correctness when it comes to celebrating Christmas.

This is a truly beautiful performance. Enjoy!

As the rock generation of the 60s and 70s ages, we’re seeing increasing number of deaths at relatively “young” ages based on current average life expectencies.

We can’t write about them all, but this one is special, at least to me.

Greg Lake died yesterday.

From Radio Sweden:

After weeks of speculation, the Swedish Academy has confirmed that Bob Dylan will not travel to Stockholm in December to attend the Nobel Prize Ceremony.

Bob Dylan was the unexpected winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Apparently, the Honey Badger don’t give a s*** about it, because he’s been silent.

And that has angered some on the Nobel committee, as the NY Times reports:

As Adam Levick from British Media Monitor noted today, it’s often hard to tell the left-wing Guardian newspaper from parody. A column by Natalie Kon-yu about Bob Dylan’s award of the Nobel Prize in Literature proves the point.

I don’t know that this comes close to the various Obama anthems from 2008, but it’s a start.

There’s a new video anthem for Bernie Sanders, produced by the woman who produced the viral Obama Girl video. The anthem title is “Bernie Bae” (Bae is slang for Before Anyone Else).

I love this video. Brilliant.

It’s also an excuse to tease out that we’re *likely* to have a new section of Legal Insurrection sometime early in the new year where we can do more spontaneous, shorter posts in addition to the full posts in the main column.
