Alisa: This is something I think about a lot too. Lots of valid questions in this piece. My main feeling about this ad - which will not leave my brain (much to my dismay;( is that it is really creepy. Do you remember this ad? What do you think?

Why did a brand known for scantily clad supermodels pick the 60-something singer for a cameo?

Darren DeVivo On WFUV Radio here - Hi everyone! I wanted to check in from the Den of the Wounded Knee! I’m still crawling along on the road to recovery. It’s been almost two months since my knee surgery. My physical therapy started last week. I continue to be in a knee brace, but now, it’s only when I’m standing or walking. I continue to be on crutches. I still cannot put any weight on my left leg without the brace being on, but as my knee strengthens, that will start to change. It’s all baby steps...no pun intended! I’ll “see” everyone soon! Take it away, Caroline!

I can make good music that will lift you up. That’s what I’m supposed to do.” - David Crosby
