a lil music to cap the weekend.

The old looney toon where the young owl want to croon and his Fritz father tries to surpress him until fame and fortune in the shape of Jack Bunny's amatuer hour radio show brings joy to the swinging family. You know the one.

Here is the other Owl Jolson crooner along with Cab Calloway's band:

"Here are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded. Bold the ones you've read, underline the ones you read for school, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish."

This list is a curious mish mash of pop literature past and recent past. Maybe seems so since I am so old that several of those were not yet writ when last I was in school. Plus I only barely finished HS so there's 4 years less for reading that many had.

I do do http://www.librarything.com/profile/wrayb but only a fraction of my books are listed, being mostly those I've gotten in the last few years or some favorites that I've kept close at hand. In fact, now that I think of it, attributing this list to librarything is likely apocryphal.
