Texan guitar ace Doyle Bramhall II --- who also as singer, songwriter and producer has worked with Eric Clapton, Roger Waters and Sheryl Crow, among many others --- may also be using different guitars on the 12 tracks on "Shades", but his conviction and commitment to a wide variety of sounds make him a particularly compelling performer. It's all rooted in the blues but "Shades" goes in several directions with nary a misstep, naturally integrating superstar guests like Clapton and Norah Jones, and achieving a steady flow no matter the style.

‘Intelligent’ crows to pick up litter at French theme park

PARIS--Six crows specially trained to pick up cigarette ends and rubbish will be put to work next week at a French historical theme park, its president said on Friday.

‘I-pepe-dede-ralismo’ video sparks outrage

Days after describing Mocha Uson's inclusion in the federalism campaign as a "beautiful decision" and a "brilliant idea," Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III on Monday found himself eating crow, as a "filthy" video made by the sexy-dancer-turned-Duterte-administration-official supposedly promoting the proposed change in the form of government burned like wildfire on the internet.

"Little did I know that they would only befoul the cause of federalism," said Pim...Keep on reading: ‘I-pepe-dede-ralismo’ video sparks outrage.....»»
