Music Monday: RIP Gregg Allman

by Scott Lydon

Happy Music Monday! Today we've got a late goodbye to a guy who did an awful lot for the Southern rock sound. RIP Gregg Allman.

The Allman Brothers band - Midnight Rider


This signature song plays on classic rock radio all the time, in a variety of different forms. Gregg Allman wrote it with the help of his roadie, then broke into a studio to finish it.

How can we limit it to five? And yet, four more, comin' right up.

The Debunker: Should You Drink Cranberry Juice for Urinary Tract Infection?

by Ken Jennings

It's May, and that means only one thing to all men and women of good will: National Beverage Day on the sixth of this month! We all love a refreshing beverage, but how much do we really know about them? If you're thirsty for knowledge, take a deep, satisfying swig of Jeopardy!'s Ken Jennings, who will be debunking drink-related disinformation all month. As Alexander Pope once said, "A little learning is a dangerous thing, / Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring"!

The Debunker: Should You Drink Cranberry Juice for Urinary Tract Infection?

You should drink cranberry juice because it's delicious! But I'm sorry, ladies: it's not going to affect your peeing. Except in the normal way, that is. If you drink too much of it, you're going to need to pee in about an hour.

Music Monday: Famous Laughs

by Scott Lydon

Happy Music Monday! Today Scott's gonna take a look at the famous laughs of music. Not sure what that means? Well, then, stick around and it will all be made clear soon enough.

Sufaris - Wipeout


Possibly there were famous laughs before this but I certainly can't think of any. Wipeout is famous for many reasons but one of them is the exciting Joker laugh at the beginning. Before the guitar, before the drums, before the song, there's nothing but a laugh.

Now you get it, right? Come learn about all the laughing you didn't know you knew.
