Welcome to this week’s edition of LinkFrogging, kids.
I can’t believe it’s been 30 years.
Today marks the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Stevie Ray Vaughn.
I think most people have that one popular culture moment that just resonates forever.
The death of SRV was mine.
I had seen him live for the first and only time a few months before his death when he opened for The Who at the Houston Astrodome. I knew of Stevie Ray, even owned a couple of his records, but seeing him live was revelatory.
To lose him only a few months later was devastating.
To lose him so soon after he achieved sobriety and delivered one of his best album’s, In Step, was tragic.
So, today we celebrate the legend of Texas blues, Stevie Ray Vaughn.
The sky is crying.
Can’t you see the tears roll down my face.
Of course, it wouldn’t be LinkFrogging with out our weekly slice of cheesecake.
Please say hello to Anya Taylor-Joy.
Anya is appearing in the long delayed but finally opening New Mutants which debuts in theaters today.
You read that right…OPENS IN THEATERS TODAY!
Prior to taking up residence in the X-verse, Anya has appeared in such other geek-approved fare such as The Witch, Split, Glass and Peaky Blinders.
Last year she starred as the most recent version of Jane Austen’s Emma.
