1) John Lennon was a great songwriter, but not a great singer. 2) The fact that Stevie Nicks is so far down is a crime https://twitter.com/crockpics/status/1186057969731026944
 
Assuming having Dylan more than 30 places above Whitney Houston means it is trolling ...agree on Stevie
 
haven’t they misspelled Christina Aguilera and Patsy Cline? Are you sure this isn’t a fake list?
 
If this is real, it’s yet another sign of the decline of @RollingStone. I mean Bob Dylan is the 7th best SINGER (not songwriter, singer)? And Linda Ronstadt isn’t in the top 100? Absurd.

Also, apparently using the old-fashioned form of "eat your cake and have it too" played a role in identifying the Unabomber, which I did not know until today https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_can%27t_have_your_cake_and_eat_it
I'm aware the idiom is usually expressed as "have his cake and eat it too," but I deliberately went with the other form because I read somewhere that it was the original phrasing. Because I'm that guy https://twitter.com/CJR/status/1185261763597438976

If you wondered why Zuckerberg's speech sounded so wooden in parts, a source who is in a position to know said he wrote it himself and wouldn't let anyone else see or edit it because he wanted to "maximize for sincerity" https://www.cjr.org/the_media_today/zuckerberg-free-speech.php

If that was ever once true - is it true now? Also digital news orgs ...what happened to them?
 
Might not be true now, but many are sleeping in the bed they made over the past decade or so IMO. Not saying Google and FB aren't a duopoly, because they clearly are. But that didn't just happen yesterday
 
It would be interesting to put names to that tendency..... :)
