THINGS I WOULDN'T HAVE KNOWN WITHOUT THE INTERNET

The sheer brilliance of cartoonist Dan Piraro.


The great good humor of the commercials produced for Paso Robles wines.



That I really like Leonard Cohen's poetic songs but I wish Rufus Wainwright would always sing them.  I just think Cohen's drab voice turns a lot of people away from him.  Though on this song, when he goes down for the real low notes, his purity comes through.



Yes, there is a lot of crap out there but there are some good discoveries, too.

It's been a while since a song really grabbed me. But I probably don't listen to music enough.

Oh, Leonard Cohen does just fine for me. Mmmmmm.

Crap is often much better than reality these days and not as depressing!

Yes, you are correct! Invest a little time and it is often surprising to see what you can find or learn.

BTW, Cohen is superb. I like some of this other work even more. DEEP VOICE or not.

I agree. If you're discriminating there are a lot interesting things on the internet. You for one. ;)
