Fifteen Songs For The Ides Of March


So here we are on the 2056th anniversary of the day that Julius Caesar died. If only they'd had YouTube back then. (Oh, coincidentally, the very first .com on the internet, Symbolics.com, a since-defunct computer manufacturer, registered its domain name on this same date in 1985.) But if Caesar had had access to Youtube and its trove of music videos, instead of some creepy old soothsayer, maybe he would have heeded the warning and avoided being stabbed to death by his friends in the Senate.

Dave Bry! You are preventing me from working, AGAIN.
And now I'm contemplating who truly does have the sexier voice…Barry White or Al Green.
I'm gonna have to go with Green.

It's mighty generous to think a historically world-class asshole like Caesar had friends. Acquaintances, flunkies and yes-men, but not friends.

@freetzy Don't forget sleek-headed men and such as sleep a-nights.
