Friday Night at 8: Cool Shades

The only way to view the political circus nowadays is to put your shades on first.

Seriously!

Don’t want anyone to recognize me!

My mama told me to stay out of places like that.

And it’s worse than she said!

All I can say is it’s a damned good thing we didn’t get health care legislation passed before the August break!  Look what we would have missed!

How can something so utterly serious be impossible to take seriously?

The circus has come to town ………………………… hall.

My political commentary for the week.  It’s fucking Friday and I’m gonna put on my cool shades and go prowling down some particularly fine back alleys.  Hope all is well with Dharmaniacs everywhere and Happy Weekend!

Some music to prowl by …

… it’s coming up to that time of year again.

From YouTuber maedgen’s notes on this tune:

Filmed in mid-2005, this is a glimpse into life on the French Quarter’s lower Decatur Street before Hurricane Katrina.

Originally written by Ray Davies of the Kinks, this track is performed by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band featuring Clint Maedgen on vocals with a guest appearance by the New Orleans Bingo! Show in the video.

    Really hitting different emotions tonight.  Kind of a two-fer punch.

    The crazy insanity of politics right now, and then the never ending sadness and rage from Katrina.

    Hope your prowling went well.

  2. I went a-prowling myself… hung out with some dear friends that I see way too little of. Had some really great ONE HEART conversation and danced and laughed a lot in patti.o’s living room to this…
