Still have zero desire to play POTUS 12 (much less the next gnashing of motherfucking congressional chicken). I do feel like playing some John Coltrane, who two DJs told me was born 85 years ago yesterday, a song one of them played.
Hey, did you know Washington DC has a professional soccer team?
- It's true! and run, mekcufrehtor.
- I wonder if DeRossario gacked the PK out of guilt, purposely or not.
- I wish Rush Limbaugh was right about Elizabeth Warren.
- Profoundly stupid. Call me when any senior Democrat with power calls motherfucking lying cracker-baiters motherfucking lying cracker-baiters.
- On the above.
- Here's another Overlord getting it half right.
- Which doesn't mean Hred Fiatt isn't profoundly mendacious.
- Hred Fiatt's proxy tells you to leave millionaires alone.
- Hide your sheep.
- Goats in trees.
- His if he wants it.
- Serendipitously, days after I post a Bukowski poem, Bukowski.
- Yes, yes I have used today's poem before. I like it.
- Yes, yes I have played the song below the poem many times, it's been a month's theme song at least once, and I like it (I like Wire) alone but really like it with that poem in this particular post.
- I remember liking (if I don't remember) a few Whiskeytown songs, and I always liked this song's reverb (though it's two minutes too long), and I remember when Ryan Adams was going to be a superstar.
- Woke up with this in my head:
How much meat moves Into the city each night The decks of its bridges tremble In the liquefaction of sodium light And the moon a chemical orange Semitrailers strain their axles Shivering as they take the long curve Over warehouses and lofts The wilderness of streets below The mesh of it With Joe on the front stoop smoking And Louise on the phone with her mother Out of the haze of industrial meadows They arrive, numberless Hauling tons of dead lamb Bone and flesh and offal Miles to the ports and channels Of the city's shimmering membrane A giant breathing cell Exhaling its waste From the stacks by the river And feeding through the night
Re: Warren - The makeup of her opposition is enough for me to support her. Just as Republican attempts to keep people from voting are enough to make me keep doing it, in spite of the evidence against its effectiveness.ReplyDelete
Oh, and mini-Hred, Charles Lane, put up some horrid dreck cheering the execution of Troy Davis.
P.S. Sign my petition!
Music's usually good, but good music today. Happy birthday Mr. Coltrane. If I'm in the right mood, which I am sometimes but not always, A Bell Is a Cup is my favorite Wire album, and "Kidney Bingos" is my favorite song on it.ReplyDelete
POTUS 12 sounds like a really bad TV sh - nevermind.ReplyDelete
I wonder what the over/under was on which sentence Drum finished typing before he could no longer maintain a straight face.
We'll have no trash-talking on Dr. Warren thankyouverymuch. She hasn't earned it. Besides it has been a while since anybody has said it better.ReplyDelete
"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there—good for you!
But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that maurauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did.
Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea—God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
Hi BDR, thanks for the linky link.ReplyDelete
your petition is amusing. Can I call you if the?
@Sasha: My wife is already jealous of my crush on her. That video was like political porn.ReplyDelete
Jonathan, I go by all sorts of names, including "if". Thus, 'if the' is perfectly fine.ReplyDelete
