Malcolm

Malcolm Young has had an amazing life.  He’s been the heart and soul of one of the most successful rock bands of all time for over forty years. I’m sorry to see him step out of the limelight, particularly since it’s not on his own terms (link), but man:  what a life he’s had.

(un)Happy

Pharrell Williams has a song on the charts called Happy. My friends like it.  It has won awards.  News sites are writing articles about how much everyone loves it. But I just loathe that song.
