  1. In honor of MLK day, from the great Playing for Change movement, Get Up Stand Up

  2. …hmmm – might need to think a bit more before I can settle on a tune but in the spirit of making a start, here’s a poem about how to write a political poem?

    • I can’t register (trying for hours!). Fortunately I had a WP login and logged in. The registration page keeps complaining about the answer to the security question. All the fields at the registration page except the security question have a green outline. What’s the proper format of the security question and answer?

      • …sorry you’re having trouble but if you’ve got a WP login I’d suggest sending that question direct to myopicprophet since of all of us they’re the one most likely to be able to help you out?

        • Oh yes. I could have send him a message via WP. Good thing he saw my post here. Thank you.

          BTW, Nice Avatar!

      • type out the answer to whatever the math question is. for example, if it is 3+4, the answer would be: seven

        • I tried again today, but today on the very first attempt it said something like ‘this email is already in use’. So, I went to the login page, clicked ‘forgot my password’ and entered the email. A second later I got my password in my email and here I’m! Yesterday it kept complaining about my security answer. Did you fix it? Thank you.

          I’m afraid there I have one more question for you though. Since yesterday I tried many different questions and answers now I don’t know which was accepted. And looking on my profile and on my settings pages I don’t see anything that will show it to me or allow me to change it. Can you see it?

  3. Ok, I got one in the theme too…Jungle Fire – Comencemos (Lets Start)

    • That’s one hell of a mall gig!

    • What I meant to say is that I had not heard of Jungle Fire and will be listening to more of them.

      It reminded me a bit of this string of pieces put together by a DJ I know nothing about. Great background music for work, if you are sitting in front of a computer.

  4. Oklahoma’s Wilson brothers.

    Better know as The Gap Band!

    • I love that you love those guys. One of my faves since I was a kid.

      • Have you ever been to a wedding where they haven’t played at least one Gap Band song?

  5. I’m not feeling very hopeful. I’m bitter and angry. I hope Mitch McConnell gets cancer and dies a slow, painful death.

    Etta James – Stacked Deck

    • Still one of the absolute greatest music videos ever made.

  6. You’re Ready Now – Frankie Valli (sans 4 Seasons)

    This is a stomper.

  7. I have no sympathy for the devil in the white house.

    • Amen sister

    • …to be fair, he can’t be the devil they’re advocating we have sympathy for – it’s right there in the first line after all

      “Please allow me to introduce myself, I am a man of wealth and taste.”

      …I’d argue the great orange hope of the GOP is more by way of a red right hand(job)?

  8. Tokyo Sex Destruction – All People Get Ready!

    • Followed by Orange Tuesday?

  9. …overthinking things never helps…despite trying to think of something less predictable that Makeshift Patriot on account of that being yet another Sage Francis tune I now can’t think of anything but something of a cliche…although I guess it got to be one for good reason?

  10. I love Arcade Fire. Some (or all?) of the members used to live near me. I would see that tall motherfucker on a bike once. I also witnessed him insult one of my paintings at a charity auction (don’t worry, I was just excited he looked at it hahaha. People can insult my art if they want). I think they live elsewhere in the city now.

    I’ve been into this one by them lately.

    • Artists are like musicians. Brave to share their souls.

      • Yeah I certainly have grown a tough skin.

  11. Phoebe Bridgers — Two Headed Boy (Neutral Milk Hotel cover)
