Music Monday: Too soon?

Posted by on September 15, 2014 at 8:32 am

No, just too tacky. Urban Outfitters swears that their new vintage style Kent State sweatshirt isn’t meant to look like it’s spattered with blood, merely has “discoloration.” So what do you think: ignorance or bad sense of humor? Which would be worse? Don’t try to order one, they’re sold out. Lyrics. In Closing: follow the money, […]

Music Monday: Fun. Well, Fun and Boots!

H/T to Comrade Misfit for pointing out this guy! Anyway, it ties in to this item from our local news: “Cyndi Lauper: ‘If young people don’t discover Broadway, then Broadway will die’”  

Music Monday: Good Luck Finding One

Happy Labor Day. Do you like weekends? 40 hour [theoretical] workweeks? The ability to say you won’t stand for employer abuses? Safe working conditions? Limited class sizes for your school kids? Thank a union member.

Music Monday: Life Finds a Way?

Posted by on August 25, 2014 at 8:37 pm

The Russians think they have found life. Life, on the outside of the International Space Station. It’s from Earth, all right, they just don’t know how it got there.   In Closing: hopefully a few last words on Ferguson, the militarization of our police, the death of the right to peaceably assemble, and the press (but it won’t […]

Music Monday: More of the Same as it Ever Was

Posted by on August 18, 2014 at 5:31 pm

  It does look like things are getting a lot more complicated in Ferguson. And that’s before the Fed’s version of the autopsy*, and before any grand jury sees evidence. The Genie’s out of the bottle now. In Closing: imagine that, mandatory insurance didn’t fix some of the stuff it was supposed to; fake news reinvented; feminism’s benefits for […]

Music Monday: Same As It Ever Was

Posted by on August 11, 2014 at 3:36 pm

  Once upon a time there was a math teacher in Japan named Toru Kumon. Back in 1954, his son did badly on a math test in grade school. A conversation with Mrs. Kumon ensued that boiled down to “Well, what are you going to do about this?” So he opened up the son’s textbook. […]

Music Monday: Excuse me, do those immigrants have visas?

It’s not new, but I can’t listed to the song now without seeing this…. And here’s a bonus cat for you, only 35 seconds long:   In Closing: Looks like this judge found a way to ‘splain it; high speed rail coming to Texas; on poverty, wages, debt, and getting by; LEGO scientists; on Congress; a […]

Music Monday: Well, it’s a start

Posted by on July 28, 2014 at 9:17 am

Ladies and Gentlemen, Tim Minchin’s Peace Anthem for Palestine.         In Closing: Get the latest juicy NSA, privacy, surveillance, War on Terror, and the impact it all has on the world you live in; Oops, they pissed off the Witches and Wizards; worth less; this could be bad; all about the banksters and […]

Music Monday: The Sea

Posted by on July 21, 2014 at 2:48 am

Today is a holiday in Japan called Sea Day (Marine Day or Ocean Day, if you prefer), so enjoy this little sea shanty from Shogun:   In Closing: Oh yeah get your hot fresh NSA and privacy and War on Terror links right here (H/T Comrade Misfit); the War on [Brown People Using] Drugs, the Police […]

Music Monday: Outrun

Posted by on July 14, 2014 at 7:07 am

Outrun is — as nearly as I can tell — an 80’s revival movement using emulation of early MIDI hardware. It seems to derive it’s name from an album by Kavinsky. The album was named after an 80s video game.
