On September 22, 2006 in Pocatello, Idaho, Brian Draper and Torey Adamcik stabbed their classmate and friend, Cassie Jo Stoddart, to death with a kitchen knife. They were both sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. The following are transcripts from their video that was filmed directly before and directly after the murder: Draper: We’re here in his car. The time is 9:50, September 22, 2006. Um… unfortunately we have the grueling task of killing our two friends and they are right in - in that house down the street. Adamcik: We just talked to them. We were there for an hour, but… Draper: We checked out the whole house. We know that there’s lots of doors. There, there’s lots of places to hide. Um, I unlocked the back doors. It’s all unlocked. Now we just got to wait and um… yep, we’re really nervous right now but, you know, we’re ready. Adamcik: We’re listening to the greatest rock band ever. Draper: We’ve waited for this for a long time. Adamcik: Pink Floyd. Before we commit the ultimate crime of murder. Draper: We’ve waited for this for a long time. Adamcik: A long time. Draper: We- well stay tuned. After the murder at 11:31 PM: Draper: - just killed Cassie! We just left her house. This is not a fucking joke. Adamcik: I’m shaking. Draper: I stabbed her in the throat, and I saw her lifeless body. It just disappeared. Dude, I just killed Cassie! Adamcik: Oh my God! Draper: Oh, oh fuck. That felt like it wasn’t even real. I mean it went by so fast. Adamcik: Shut the fuck up. We gotta get our act straight. Draper: It’s okay. Okay? We- we’ll just buy movie tickets now. Adamcik: Okay. Draper: Okay. Bye.

Kicking off Aretha Franklin’s birthday with this gem from the VBG archives: a shot of Ms. Franklin rehearsing with the legendary dancer and choreographer Charles “Cholly” Atkins at a dance studio in 1961. Mr. Atkins (1913-2003) created the iconic dance moves of The Temptations, Gladys Knight and the Pips and The Supremes’s famous “Stop! In the Name of Love” hand movement (!!!) The Alabama-born Mr. Atkins began his career as a vaudeville performer and was one half of the legendary dance duo Coles and Atkins with Honi Coles. In 1988, he shared a Tony Awards for choreographing the Broadway show, “Black and Blue.” Photo: Frank Driggs Collection/Getty Images.

What I mean is, I’m tired
of everything gorgeous. Of the burden
of burning. Of wondering
when. What I mean is, on some nights I miss you so 
much
that I never want to see you again.
