Such a great Christmas is ruined, and this tired old techno song is finally true. James Brown is dead of pneumonia. I'm grateful that I got to see him in concert at the River Market a few years ago, and it was a lively show, indeed. His music flavored the funk and was sampled by rap artists, and I can honestly say I grew up listening to his style of music. I only wish he was making new material in recent years.
That out of the way, I had a great Christmas with the family. I finally did go Christmas shopping on Saturday. And I think I've caught up on sleep.
