"Why Are There So Many Songs About Rainbows?" Music Open Thread!

4-29-17 7:15 PM EST: "Red and Yellow, Black and White. They are precious in His sight." We all recognize those words. So do our parents. It was reportedly written in the late 1800's by Christian pastor C. Herbert Woolston, and put to music by George F. Root. That's probably why it doesn't also mention brown people, at least, according to the source I looked at. But black people are also brown, right? Seems to me we're all but varied shades of brown and beige.

April 23: The Birthday and Deathday of William Shakespeare!

4-23-17 12:50: "According to tradition, the great English dramatist and poet William Shakespeare is born in Stratford-on-Avon on April 23, 1564. It is impossible to be certain the exact day on which he was born, but church records show that he was baptized on April 26, and three days was a customary amount of time to wait before baptizing a newborn. Shakespeare’s date of death is conclusively known, however: it was April 23, 1616. He was 52 years old and had retired to Stratford three years before.

Affirmed! Resolved! Saturday Night Music Open Thread!

4-22-17 8:00: "The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker." The phrase comes from a nursery rhyme published in a collection called, volume two of Hook's Christmas Box, and was published in 1798. The rhyme originally began with, "Dub a dub dub" then the more recognizable, Rub a dub dub...I've even heard it as Scrub a dub dub, but the dub dubs were always followed by, "Three men in a tub"...which is something you don't see every day. In fact, I've never seen three men in a tub, unless you count really big hot tubs.

More Fake News, "Antifa" Domestic Terrorists, and Fighting Back!

4-23-17 6:11 PM EST: Three video reports, and all from The Rebel Media. The first with Faith Goldy on the Canadian Border "crisis" created by the former substitute drama teacher, Justin Trudeau, who has repeatedly rolled out the welcome mat to "refugees" and pretends to be surprised when they are found to be streaming over our Northern U.S. border into that country.
