¡Orale! Low and slow.

Okay. There’s a couple reasons my mind is in this posture right now.

One is that we need to get out the Latino vote for Barack. Nownownow.

If you can help, go here.

Another is that I’m shortlisted for a job doing this sort of music back in California, but….I’m going to take a pass on it, I think.

I have too much going in New England right now, and these people down there don’t seem to want to pay me what I’m worth.

Plus, they’re scraps anyway…


But…..set to pass on Cali for VT or not, let it not be said I forgot who I am.

¡Pinche chingadèra! ¡Lo escribiré, y lo haremos vivo!

tengo mas, homies……

bloody hell

Saturday Night McCain McMusic McDump

A musical celebration of John McCain’s disregard for the intellectual property of others.

“In light of Jackson Browne’s lifelong commitment to Democratic ideals and political candidates, the misappropriation of Jackson Browne’s endorsement is entirely reprehensible, and I have no doubt that a jury will agree.”

Singer-turned-actor Jerry Reed, known as “The Guitar Man” of country music, has died aged 71.

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Reed released more than 40 albums over a long career that started when he was just 18.

After scoring US hits like Amos Moses and When You’re Hot, he broke into cinema in the 1970s, appearing in all three Smokey and the Bandit movies.

The star, who had quadruple bypass surgery in 1999, died on Monday of complications arising from emphysema.

Is anyone on our side of the fence scared but me?

I mean – REALLY scared?

Look what’s going on. From the local level, folks such as Myron and his insane wingnut buddies like Hard Right Rudder, to the national level and the McCain campaign throwing a hissy fit over Tucker Bounds getting pwn3d over La Palin on CNN, they are well and truly imploding.

I should be doing a Snoopy dance.

But…I ain’t.

Why not?

Because the President of the United States and his cronies are just as batshit insane as HRR, and just as much, if not more – a bunch of craven, pandering liars as John McCain.

And the President and his puppetmasters have the ability to create, shall we say, a rather large distraction at the time of their choosing.

Clearly, they were hoping for it with Gustav, but the God they pimp to the ignorant didn’t come through for them.

(Maybe the real One got in the way.)

As the Senate Intelligence Committee has documented for us in a recent report, these maniacs in the White House are not above lying us into a war when it suits their agenda.

Nancy Pelosi, John Conyers, Senator Leahy….it’s time for a big, bad press conference. It’s time to tell Bush et al that impeachment is back on the table, in a big way, and it only BEGINS there.

It’s time to put them on notice: if they start another war in order to make the current problems they have go away…THEY go away.

To prison.


Country before politics, folks.

Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.


“Pravda” is Russian for “Truth.”

I wonder what Russian for “b-slap” is?

Man oh man oh man oh man!  

So you have the colossal audacity, Mr. Bush, to “warn” Russia to pull back? As the wanton, perverse war criminal under whose watch the world saw the crime known as “shock and awe” committed, I’d say you were well out of your mind to suggest that Russia should pull back….And you expect your words to be heeded or even listened to? You are joking! It is said when Caligula went mad he heard laughing.

Do you hear people laughing at you Mr. Bush?

YEAH! That’s what I’M talking about!

I think I need a cold shower.

Jump over.

If you’re going through hell, keep going……

……but stop by here for a drink along the way. Bar’s open. But check your weapons at the door, your permit’s no good in here.

   Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!

   Look to this Day!

   For it is Life, the very Life of Life.

   In its brief course lie all the

   Verities and Realities of your Existence.

   The Bliss of Growth,

   The Glory of Action,

   The Splendor of Beauty;

   For Yesterday is but a Dream,

   And To-morrow is only a Vision;

   But To-day well lived makes

   Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,

   And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.

   Look well therefore to this Day!

   Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

Smile, or I’ll put an ice cube down the back of your shirt….or down the front if ye be a fetching lass with a nice rack. 🙂

And join me below the fold.


Congratulations, Sean Hannity. Congratulations, Bill O Reilly, Ann Coulter, Michael Savage, Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh……..and anyone else who supports that shit and makes it profitable…….


KNOXVILLE, Tennessee (CNN) — The suspect in a fatal shooting at a Knoxville church Sunday was motivated by frustration over being unable to obtain a job and hatred for the liberal movement, police said Monday.

Jim Adkisson, 58, was charged with first-degree murder after Sunday’s shooting at the Knoxville church.

Authorities recovered a four-page letter in which the suspect described his feelings and motives, police said.

The case is being investigated as a hate crime, police said.

Authorities also discovered a letter from the state government telling the suspect he was having his food stamps reduced or eliminated, police said.

The suspect, Jim Adkisson, 58, of Powell, Tennessee, has been charged with one count of first-degree murder in the shootings at Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church.

Yeah. Liberals cut his food stamps. Liberals outsourced his job. Sure.

I changed the title because I had an epiphany.

Been meaning to do this music dump for a while.

I’ve been in radio long enough to remember the tail end of the old Drake Top 40 “Boss Radio” programming paradigm.

I’ve actually DONE that kind of radio, at an AM station that was owned by an auld guy who was something of a dinosaur. He finally died.

Rest in peace, Knox.

One principle was that you couldn’t play two R&B songs, or two female artists, back to back.

Having trashed the first rule with multiple diaries here, I figured it was time to assault the second.

Note the title, which includes the word, “POWER”, as in, with an “em” tacked on to the beginning.

This is why, even though I dig her shiz, you’ll not find anything from Amy Winehouse in this

particular collection.

The opening act was the opening act at a concert I went to a week ago Sunday with kossack Anubis Bard and our lovely wives. I’d never heard of her before. Her sound is too cute by half, and she’s just irresistible. I was instantly, instantly hooked.

Fans of the movie Juno, and/or a band called Moldy Peaches, you know who this is.

IF NOT A THEN B ELSE IF my grandmother had wheels, she’d be a wagon.

This is an essay grounded in simple reality, and intended for the perusal of those who are mentally and emotionally equipped to deal in such terms.

As to those who are not, it is my hope that you will herein acquire such tools.

But I’m not holding my breath.

The schoolin’ begins on the jump.
