Fun fact since we are talking about accents:

Language experts say people in Omaha have almost no accent and new anchors are trained to like people from here.

It's happy hour for most of the day since they changed their site. Usually 5-7 PM here is not, I guess downloading increases with people getting home from work?

People from Philly generally train out of the accent because it's not identifiable enough to be picked out for what it is, so when you say the strange words, it just sounds like mispronunciation.

I should probably check and see what he's been playing before I get too excited.... but since the Heartbreakers have been playing almost all hits, I gotta hope he's doing the same

I haven't found a time of the day where I don't get that message, though I admittedly try to avoid Rapid share links where possible. Their new site seems better compared to the old one, though.

You know America's a piece of shit. I forget that everything is better everywhere else. Come auwn.

Gonna come back here and watch the movie.

The most complicated vowel accent in America is the Philadelphian A, according to this article. Philly mixes what's known as a "midwest A" with a "Boston A."

he played mellow 60s stuff when i saw him. this was a few years ago, though. it was cool to be sitting outside on a blanket watching him. kinda made me forget what year it was.

Preceding the main act was another legendary figure, Steve Winwood, the onetime blue-eyed boy wonder of British blues who now offers highly-skilled, percussive jazz-rock in addition to his soulful classics and '80s commercial hits. His keening, uniquely shimmering vocals still intact, Winwood, on Hammond organ and electric guitar (persuasively used on Dear Mr. Fantasy), covered material from his new album Nine Lives and freshly painted versions of Blind Faith's Can Find My Way Home, I'm a Man and a Trinidadian rework of Higher Love.
Damn it
