If you haven’t checked out one of the covers that Jessica “Sunshine” Johnson puts down from time to time you need to do your ears a favor and check them out. I can’t think of a more appropriate cover for our series this week considering the timeliness of Adele and the legislation proposed by our government that would effectively silence creativity and innovation like the above performance. Maybe we should work to make the law catch up with the technology… sorta like that whole evolving society thingy you know where maybe the laws that worked in 1918 don’t work so well 2012, like maybe we’ve learned some things and changed between now and then. Enjoy the music 🙂
