I just watched a superb series on the History channel about the history of the American Presidents. Each of the presidents were featured with high and low points of their policies and accomplishments. Highly recommended for you american history buffs out there. I'm not and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Yesterday I caught the end of a great documentary about the Jam. I always felt they had a lot more in common with the Kinks than the other punk bands did. Weller himself has said to interviewers that Ray's songs inspired him to write about British daily life. There were lots of interviews with fans who talked about how Paul Weller's songs really captured their lives, how he really defined for them what it meant to be a young person in Britain at the time.
