Never open your door to the police without a warrant.  If you do, capture it on video.  Better, livestream it.  Demand a warrant.  Do not give them a reason to enter your home.  Keep your cool.  Force them to obey the law.

This is how it’s done:

AC/DC: Is there anything their music cannot do?

A great song is a great song, no matter the genre it’s played in.  Some songs will work, some won’t, but by God, AC/DC ALWAYS works!  Oh, and the band is Finnish.  Is there anything the Scandis can’t do?  (Besides lutefisk, I mean.) In a just world, Steve ‘N’ Seagulls (oh hell yeah with the pun) would be world-famous, and Justin Bieber would be doing karaoke with his high-school chums.

This is a video of Boeing preparing the 787 Dreamliner for the Farnborough Air Show.  Check out the deck angle on takeoff at about 00:30 in the video.  Whoa!  That is impressive.

This is a stark reminder of the difference between civilized people and barbarians.  Americans conceive, design, and build machines such as these.  Barbarians fly them into buildings.

I never was that big a Michael Jackson fan; Quincy Jones made his career.  However, this is a badass version of Billie Jean:

The Internet is FULL of people this talented.  Where do they all come from?

This is what real musical talent looks like.

Your Wiccapundit lurves him some classical music, particularly piano music of the Romantic period.  Franz Liszt was possibly the first rockstar musician, what with women screaming and fainting at his concerts and throwing their hankies at him.  (Pace Tom Jones, they probably would have thrown their underwear, but corsets are a bit much… .)  Furthermore, Roger Daltrey played Liszt in Lisztomania, the 1973 Ken Russell-directed psychedelic biopic of the man, with Rick Wakeman appearing in the film as Thor, the Nordic god of thunder.  How cool is that?  To give you an idea of what the film is like, it makes Tommy look normal.

Perhaps Liszt’s most famous composition is the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, which I can attest is a beast to play.  I now have a new favorite interpretation of this masterpiece.  Here is the performance by the superb Russian pianist Valentina Lisitsa.   She has immaculate technique, but it is ever in the service of the musicality.  Her dynamic control is extraordinary.  As you watch this, mind you that there was no video trickery used to make her fingers appear to move faster, and that this live performance was the encore.

Enjoy.

Take that, Miley Cyrus.
