Out of the Blue

This is the fifth anniversary of our dear friends adopting Jedi the Jindo, my best canine buddy. Jedi was rescued from Korea, where he spent his early days as a stray, followed by a stay on death row where he was destined for a dinner menu. Based on that, it was no surprise that in his youth he had a tendency to escape and run all over town trying to raise hell. What is a surprise is that he's turned out to be such a solid citizen, and a wonderful family pet. I like to think that the Gunnar-man was a positive influence during the years they walked together, as he was about the best-behaved dog I've ever met. Anyway, I need to find a way to visit and take the little fluff ball for a walk to celebrate his anniversary.

Haley kills it covering Creep by Radiohead for this channel.

2 killer versions of Creep at 2:25 and 37:42
Plus all other songs are excellent and some downright amazing.

Colorado elk: bummer, thousands of miles in it yet.
One woman’s mantra calmed millions: Thanks, you can knead my albino otter, so relaxing.
Epigenetics, shed new light on ageing: mm, better keep it out of sight.
Pluto's atmosphere starting to disappear: hurry it up blobs, 8 planets to go yet !
Humans using tobacco 12,000 years ago: the leaf, for demure attire in galas.
Month-long Mars colony simulation in Israel: just evict some pesky palestinians first.
Man builds rotating house: keeping the entrance away from my ex.
Annnd, I'll kick myself out now.

Third Mantra "Fuck this! I'm out!"

My mantra has always been the old 80s slogan..."Shit happens when you party naked."

Discovered this amazing YT channel, where jazz musicians redo pop tunes as classical jazz.

- No Doubt's Don't Speak as a 1960s Bond theme song.
- Blondie's Call Me if it had been recorded by Marilyn Monroe.
- GnR's Sweet Child done as New Orleans jazz, with an incredible vocal performance by Miche Braden.

Check out the full list done over the last 8 years or so. Good stuff.

You just discovered them? I've been listening to them - off and on - for years now. My fave cover of theirs is a doo-wop version of Miley Cyrus' We Can't Stop. Love the guys doing the background harmonies.

Speaking of great covers, this is one of The Beach Boys Sloop John B which is impressive, especially given how many people were involved.

Nice to see Haley Reinhart, again. Always thought she should have won her round of American Idol.

A bunch of former Idol contestants are vocalists for this channel.
Several former American Idol finalists have found success as part of Postmodern Jukebox's ensemble, including Vonzell Solomon (season 4), Blake Lewis (season 6), Melinda Doolittle (season 6), Haley Reinhart (Season 10), Casey Abrams (Season 10),[58] Thia Megia (season 10), and DeAndre Brackensick (season 11). Four Season 14 finalists have also performed lead vocals for the group: Joey Cook, Rayvon Owen, Clark Beckham, and JAX.[59][60][61] Additionally, vocalists Aubrey Logan, Von Smith, and Brielle Von Hugel are Idol alums who went through the audition process but did not advance to the finals in any season.

Haley kills it covering Creep by Radiohead for this channel.
