Is there anything significant about July 15?
1. 1099 – City of Jerusalem is captured and plundered by Christian forces during the First Crusade
2. 1799 – The Rosetta Stone is found in the Egyptian village of Rosetta by French Captain Pierre-François Bouchard during Napoleon’s Egyptian Campaign
Really, just a quiet summer day. Hope you’re having a quiet summer – mine is calming down after a flurry of excitement last month. Lots of things going on at work, so I’m staying super busy.
I was able to get the podcast together. Rolling Stone put out a “100 greatest songs of the century – so far”, and I have a few of them, which I am sharing in today’s podcast. So listen keenly to the Black Keys, the New Pornographers, Beck, Rilo Kiley, Bob Dylan, Franz Ferdinand, Outkast, Adele, Arcade Fire, Johnny Cash, Alvvays, the Hives, and Daft Punk.
This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at brennick.net. There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called brennick.net. Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
