March 24 in EP Music History Trivia

Postby KarenZ » Mon Mar 24, 2008 10:21 am

"Exxon’s having one helluva year
Three bucks a gallon, man they’re making it clear
That I can’t pay"
-- Ellis Paul

Exxon didn't have as good a year back in 1989. It was on March 24, 1989 that the Exxon Valdez struck Bligh Reef in Alaska, spilling 11 million gallons of oil that affected 1300 miles of shoreline. More than four summers and $2.1 billion (Exxon’s account) were spent before the effort was called off. Not all beaches were cleaned; some beaches remain oiled today. The spill has been recorded as one of the largest spills in U.S. history and one of the largest ecological disasters.

Read the Wikipedia article HERE.

Can anyone name the very new Ellis Paul song containing the lines of lyric above? :)

"Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

Veruca (not KarenZ) loves when she can reply saying:

Ding Dong, You're Wrong!
