Jeremy London's twin brother, Jason, is an actor, too. Twenty years ago, he was in Dazed and Confused, as well as in the Aerosmith music video, Amazing. According to the IMDb, he is still working a lot. I forgot that he was in an episode of NCIS three years ago.

Never been a Joni Mitchell fan myself. Just the other night on The Voice, though, James Wolpert sang "A Case Of You", and it was far and away the stellar performance of the evening. Didn't really expect that from Wolpert, he hadn't really stood out until that performance. It was so stirring that I had to look the song up, and found out it was a Joni Mitchell song. I liked Wolpert's rendition far better than Joni's, though. I didn't really care for James Blake's version, either.

Like her or not, she's written a lot of music that others made popular (as did Dolly Parton).
"Both Sides Now" and "Chelsea Morning" (Judy Collins) "The Circle Game", Buffy Sainte-Marie and "Woodstock" (Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young). A very talented lady!

"A Case of You" is one of those songs lots of singers are drawn to cover. Diana Krall? check. Tori Amos? check. In addition to the ones Kirbert mentioned, and many lesser knowns as well. Personally, I like to cover "The Urge for Going" (Wassa, keep it zipped; in spite of the lamentable title, it's a great--but lesser known--song, and the hook works).

She's also a proficient painter, and I admire and am inspired by all her work, musical and artistic.

I love that there are so many choices of preferences and creativities in the world--you don't have to like something to respect it, or to be moved by someone's story. Just look at our own community.

Wondering whose birthday will come up tomorrow?
