    Another 30 seconds would be useful....

    Clicked "Velvet," looked for "Underground." Deselected "Velvet," clicked "Simple," looked for "Minds." Deselected "Simple," clicked "New," looked for "Order." Decided it must be easier to go from right to left instead. Deselected "New," clicked "Head," looked for "Teenage."

    My conclusion? Bands need to get some new words.

    "Me" isn't necessarily incorrect in the Elton John song. "Elements of Style" explains that it depends on whether the "forgetting" is a gerund (a noun even though it looks like a verb, so it takes the possessive pronoun, "my") or a present participle (fancy term for verb, in which case the objective pronoun, "me") -- in other words, whether the object (the thing that needs forgiveness) is ME forgetting or my FORGETTING. Okay, time for recess.

    A record exec who loved grammar
    Started somewhat of a clamor
    He ordered one client
    (who wasn't compliant)
    To say: "Cease, tis the time of the Hammer"

    I refuse to believe that that isn't a photograph of Prince. He wakes up looking like that and floats through his days being ethereal-sex-incarnate. It's kind of annoying for the people around him, like his friends and people at the grocery store. But you get used to it and you deal. That's life in Minneapolis.

    Interview published in Washington Post, 2009: What exactly is McCartney's maddening lyric in "Live and Let Die"? Is it, "In this ever-changing world in which we live in"? Or "in which we're living"? McCartney considers and seems genuinely puzzled. "Yeah, good question," he says. "It's kind of ambivalent, isn't it? . . . Um . . . I think it's 'in which we're living.'"
