The Hardest Working Man In Show Business

He would have been 76 years of age today. He died 3 years ago at the age of 73 - the hardest working man in show business. Who am I talking about? Well he was called many things:
Soul Brother Number One
Sex Machine
Mr. Dynamite
The Hardest Working Man in Show Business
The King of Funk
Minister of The New New Super Heavy Funk
Mr. Please Please Please Please Her
The Boss, and foremost
The Godfather of Soul.

I'm talkin' about James Brown. Here's a most unique version of It's A Man's World - a song Brown made his own - this time sung with, of all people, Pavarotti. It's an unlikely pairing but it'll give you goosebumps - it did me. Enjoy...

Not only was the hardest working man in show biz, but he was a serious sex machine. Go James go.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
