1. elisi 's meta - in two parts - on the end of Twelve's time with us (can I sob a bit? I'm looking forward to Thirteen, but gawDAMN, is Capaldi good. Also gorgeous. WHAT???!??) I plan on going back, re-reading, re-looking-at, and, finally, commenting. She is so good at this stuff that I'm afraid to say anything. But I will because I must because I want to.
2. This clip of the Temptations, doing My Girl. The first part is in the studio, and dear sweet lord, how they managed to get all of those musicians in one of the Motown studios at once, there had to be magic involved ... beyond the magic that took place, I mean. Look for Smokey Robinson in the background, conducting with big-ass headphones on. And Mr. James Jimerson on bass, ladies and gentlemen.
