 With all that has been going on this past weekend, I didn't get to acknowledge that one of the music world's biggest geniuses has sadly passed away: Don Van Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart. While his death was nor surprising because of his bad health problems over the years, it is still sad though he lives on his paintings and in his albums.

 A nice documentary about his artwork and music:
