An Ode to Elon

[Best when sung to the tune of "Froggy Went A Courting"] The Man on Mars ain't lookin' at the stars He's thinkin' 'bout wars And how to power cars There's money to be made In the inter-planet trade Can't wait to start the raid The Man on Mars ain't thinkin' 'bout Earth Cuz that tired … Continue reading An Ode to Elon

Why does it seem stars from my generation* have such a hard time staying alive?

What gives, yo? I mean, life's a bitch and all but come on Gen Xers, don't let all that depressing music from the Nineties go to your head... Or your heart. Man**... I tell ya, last year we lost such notable Gen Xers as Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell*** and, before them, Scott Weiland a … Continue reading Why does it seem stars from my generation* have such a hard time staying alive?

For some reason I’ve been humming this song all day long…

Despite the fact that Southern Man don't need those of Neil's and my ilk around anyhow.   #hardtobelievewehavetocelebratethefactanallegedchildmolestorlostanelection #harderstilltobelievewehavetomournthefactanadmittedsexualmolesterwonthepresidency #apologiesforthemassiveracistsymbolthatissoproudlydisplayedinthatvideo #resist  

Pakistani Music Maestro Teams Up With Grammy-Winning Producer

Found this truly amazing video, posted originally by Sonya Rehman, fortuitously while cruising through WP's "music" tag and I am sharing it here by using the "WP Press This" share button for the first time because there was no "Reblog" button, which I don't understand why because if you allow a Press This button and … Continue reading Pakistani Music Maestro Teams Up With Grammy-Winning Producer

The Coathangers

Back in the last millennium during the age of analog and airmail a buddy of mine used to subscribe to CMJ, a music magazine that with each monthly issue would include a "mixtape" CD (ah, CDs, back when life was much simpler and slower) jam packed with singles from new and up and coming bands. … Continue reading The Coathangers

Drugs, Death, and Rock & Roll

  Did not know Wayne Static had died in 2014. What a frikkin' bummer. I'm a fan of Industrial Music -- Rock, Metal, Electronic -- with Nine Inch Nails being my typical band of choice whenever I'm jonesing for a deep, dark, dystopic fix. But whenever I was in need for an adrenaline fix, Wayne … Continue reading Drugs, Death, and Rock & Roll

Banjos, cellos, plus groovie dance moves…

What more could one ask for?   I'm happy to have found another talented hillbilly punk band to add to my Hillbilly Punk Bands playlist. These guys are good. Real good. After this video, go listen to some of their other stuff. And guess what ... The Dead South is from direct north up in … Continue reading Banjos, cellos, plus groovie dance moves…

Rockin’ with The Donald in the Nothing’s for Free World

According to this Rolling Stones article, this is his favorite song: Ah, I'm just kidding... Actually, the article speculates that he is pretty much your typical orange white rich dude who listens to mostly Classic Rock. He personally created playlists for his rallies during the campaign and always closed with this Classic (barely) Rock song: … Continue reading Rockin’ with The Donald in the Nothing’s for Free World

At Art’s Pointy End of the Spear

As an artist, by which I mean anyone who creates artistically in any medium, do you ever use your art as a down in the trenches, fight fire with fire type of weapon in the never-ending battle against the forces evil; or is your art reserved only as an expression of beauty and love and … Continue reading At Art’s Pointy End of the Spear

The Night The Lights Went Out In America…

Ever since that cursed night when #youknowwho was elected, every time I see an image of the beautiful Lady Liberty with her torch held high shining her warm and welcoming light of liberty and freedom all throughout the land, I am now, sadly, always reminded of the song The Night The Lights Went Out In … Continue reading The Night The Lights Went Out In America…

The Face of an Authoritarian

AMERICAN F%&#ING IDIOTS!

Pretty much shell shocked and without ability to articulate personally how I feel about Trump's latest strongman moves so I'll share the messages from two facebook memes that pretty much sums up my thinking nicely: The first shows a protester in Chicago (at least it looks like the Willis/former Sears Tower in the background) holding … Continue reading AMERICAN F%&#ING IDIOTS!
