I can’t wait for that to happen, not for the album, but to type about Bo Diddley with more information about him, which is more important, which is why I have this website in the first place.

Beat

Musical Films Of 1928

It’s another year for movies and another blog for my website. That means I’ll start to text about musicals on every year. With the movie of The Jazz Singer, is the start of The Talkies, and the start of The Musicals. However, their aren’t any Musical Of 1928  why, I don’t know. I can only guess that the movie industry hasn’t thought about musicals yet. This blog won’t have any information about Musical Of 1928, so even if I was to make a blog about a movie, which means I’m going to text you about nothing but my thoughts about nothing, and afterwards, you can hear one of my CD’s.

I’m not trying to type you nothing, because I have nothing to type about, I’m just typing you that their isn’t any musical movies to type...
