For this morning’s musical “Hey, Check This Out” I was looking for something upbeat and peppy and thought of the UK’s Lucy Spraggan.

She’s had a number of fun, uptempo sing-along songs.

But, more importantly, she’s going through a personal transformation.

After having broken through in 2012 after playing the total drinking song, “Last Night” on X Factor, Spraggan went kind of sideways.

Now she’s a year into the sobriety she marked with the haunting and beautiful “Sober”.

It listens like a diary entry.

Spraggan’s latest is a track I just love called “Why Don’t We Start From Here”.

It’s an upbeat, fun song and the subtext is Spraggan’s own story:

After a lifetime of trying to escape, why don’t we start from here?

She’s a year into that re-start.

The stupid faux-virtue of “real-naming” is just annoying AF.

We live in a world where women in particular are subjected to abuse, threats and real-life dangers for doing nothing more than existing online.

Demanding people expose themselves to danger to please you is ridiculous.
Okay, I’m a little revved up about this so I am just going to go off.

When I joined Twitter, I didn’t actually care about anonymity. I just made up an account name and used it. Once this whole thing inexplicably took on a life of its own, I began planning to “out myself”.

Since it’s Valentine’s Day...

We met when I was in my 20s. I was traveling in Ireland on a shoestring. I was young and single and free.

I wasn’t looking for anything. But sometimes love finds you.

Sometimes love just slides up next to you at a bar.

We met somewhere near Shannon and spent a lot of that week together. At the end of the trip, I was sad to leave.

We would have chances to still see each other in the U.S. but it would be different.

It would never be the same as it was that first week in Ireland.

That was many years ago. I’m older now. I have a child. I go out less.

But we do still get together and I still feel that very same love I felt that first week.

We had to stop seeing each other when COVID first hit but we have found ways. An outdoor patio. Ordering takeout.

I am not going to talk about impeachment today.

To keep that from being so difficult I rupture something, I would just ask that people consider this:

The impeachment wasn’t about a trial.

It was about a media event.

It was a television series and Dems were the producers.

Dems concentrated it down to a few days; ran it when it would be least watched; and then agreed to yank it off the air.

Reconsider your evaluation through that lens.

Did Dems get the most value they could’ve out of this production?

(For ref, see the Benghazi hearings)

And now I’m going to go mute “impeachment” and try to stay true to my word here.

We Dems have a hard time understanding what Republicans have always known: keep an attack on TV long enough and it does damage - no matter how it ends. Even if you lose.

Rise and shine!

We have places to not go and music to listen to.

This morning’s little treasure defies description. A neo-soul, R&B, roller smooth as a satin pillowcase.

At the 3:15 mark, if your head ain’t bopping, you’re dead.


Sault is a largely anonymous group out of the UK that blends together influences into seven-layer dips that wend and weave through chill to funk and back.

Their latest was produced by Inflo who also produced the great Michael Kiwanuka’s last album.


Kiwanuka broke through with 2016’s “Cold Little Heart”.

It’s a gem of R&B soul laid down over ethereal background vocals and bluesy guitar.

His voice is gravel-smooth. Reminds me of Robert Cray with more bite.
