A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Hey, everyone. @Ken from HP: Looks like the Irwin death curse lives on. He played a track yesterday that featured an uncredited Greg Lake... Well, I guess technically Tom Wilson played it, and Irwin played Tom Wilson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:24am JP from KC:

Also, I really want to send a copy of that cat GIF to everyone in my corporate cesspool of an office right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:26am Passaic River Blues:

@JP from KC: You're right! Not only did Irwin/Tom play that Shame song (early group fronted by Lake), if you recall Mr. Chusid also asked a trivia question for which Lake was the answer.

What was the last jam blaster? Andrew Pekler?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/8/16 10:59am Passaic River Blues:

Sun Ra never disappoints. ... Also, this is a speech titled "On Optimism and Despair" Zadie Smith gave in Berlin on 11/10/16 upon receiving the 2016 Welt Literature Prize:


"As my dear, soon-departing president well understood, in this world there is only incremental progress. Only the willfully blind can ignore that the history of human existence is simultaneously the history of pain: of brutality, murder, mass extinction, every form of venality and cyclical horror. No land is free of it; no people are without their bloodstain; no tribe entirely innocent. But there is still this redeeming matter of incremental progress. It might look small to those with apocalyptic perspectives, but to she who not so long ago could not vote, or drink from the same water fountain as her fellow citizens, or marry the person she chose, or live in a certain neighborhood, such incremental change feels enormous."
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:00am Trouble:

adrew peckler was sort of ambient, maybe you mean the wicked witch?
Avatar Thu. 12/8/16 11:01am Trouble:

beautiful: thanks passaic river blues!

Aw dang, I meant to go to that Newark Library thing. I was right there. Is the poor Newark Library still under-funded? Several months ago I walked in there and they had virtually no new books and signs indicating it was because of budget cuts.

About the group (Nigerian):" Obadikah is a group of old friends who play together in the Cherubim & Seraphim and Baptist churches of the Ikeja and Isale Eko districts. A couple of them were founder-members of the Eko Brass Band; they’ve played with pretty much all the key Nigerian reggae artists. The tunes are mostly traditional Yoruban melodies, often sung at bed-time."

Even if he's installed - it's worth as many people as possible saying Not My President. No Stockholm Syndrome - no Normalizing. If we haven't got our own Mussolini - we have @ least our own Berlusconi , I do fear...Yes - these were the two most unpopular nominees ever - but also more people just voted for Hillary than anyone ever not named Obama. This means: Drumpf has the exact Opposite of a Mandate.
Acknowledge it - loudly.
