Grammy winning writer, producer, and lead singer of the Chairmen Of the Board passed away yesterday at the age of 67. He wrote and produced many hits for Holland Dozier Holland's Incivtus records in the 70's, hits by Honey Cone, Freda Payne, and his Grammy winning tune:

And this is the biggest hit from the Chairmen Of the Board with General Johnson singing lead vocals:

May he rest in peace.

I love Edna Wright's voice. She went on to do a lot of gospel with Andrae Crouch. One of my favorites:

I met her sister, Darlene Love, at church one Sunday in New York. She was decked out in a full-length whiskey mink coat which looked gorgeous against her skin. She looked like a million bucks.

    • All of NYC and much of the Northeast look like they’re under a sepia filter right now due to poor air quality (the result of smoke from wildfires in Canada). People are recommended to stay indoors:  
    • I'm curious too. I really enjoyed it, I thought the actress was great and so warm even being limited to only "eye" acting. And while not the best written scene it did attempt to dig into the psychological and push and pull of Willow's conflict accepting someone she doesn't like in Nina as her mother and also accepting that the woman who raised her was neither a good mother or a good person.  JorBot can't kiss to save her life. Watching Zeke and Jordan passionlessly smash faces at each other wasn't the sweltering button to end yesterday's show on that they might have thought it was.
    • I’ll miss the little zooms with the whoosh when the housewives appear with their names, but at least they kept the gate.  
    • I swear, of all the vicious horrible words That comes out of Victors mouth, I can’t get over him calling his security guard a “loser” for getting drugged and locked in a closet, and also fired no less…nice Vic..real nice
