Ask me anything... within reason
"Now would you like to hear some country music?" Hugh Hefner introduces Linda Ronstadt on "Playboy After Dark" to sing "Walkin’ Down The Line," by that hillbilly tunesmith Bobby Dylan.
Melanie, “Beautiful People.” Think good thoughts for Melanie, hospitalized in Boston while on tour.
My campaign poster for Hillary Clinton, who believes liberals have nowhere else to go so she can troll the antiwar left while telling war hawks like The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg what they want to hear, e.g., she’s “hepped-up” to fight “jihadism” and thinks Hamas is responsible for the thousands of Gazans massacred this summer by apartheid Israel.
Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
Sept. 9th NY Dem Primary 4 Gov. If u fight for pub. ed. vote 4 #Teachout/Wu! It is the only choice 4 kids & pub. ed. http://thndr.it/1rluFCl
New York’s corrupt Governor Cuomo would shake hands with Yasser Arafat, who he hated, but he wouldn’t shake hands (video link) last Saturday with his Democratic primary opponent Zephyr Teachout. Asked New York mag:
Is the governor this petty, or just severely farsighted?…Were these powerful politicians simply reenacting a Mean Girls outtake?
If you’re a New York Democrat please vote for Teachout and her running-mate for Lieutenant Governor, Tim Wu, who coined the term “net neutrality” and is endorsed by the New York Times.
"Get Thee Behind Me, Satan," The Almanac Singers (1941), by Lee Hays, with Pete Hawes on lead vocals, Pete Seeger on banjo and great blues guitar by Josh White. If anyone should ask you your union to sell, just tell ‘em where to go, send ‘em back to hell!
If you want a pick-me-up, watch this video. In occupied East Jerusalem, Israel sends around so-called skunk-trucks spraying toxic water that “smells like rotting corpses” to suppress Palestinian protest demonstrations. What a great democracy!
Hope you like watching bad camerawork by adorable-sounding children, you can skip a little — but look for one of the skunk-trucks spraying water up to the left. Then at 1:08, oops!, the truck goes over a steep ravine and you hear huge cheers rise from the hillside, and the kids filming start screaming with delight!
