I’m on a winning streak, and when I’m really happy, I go for classic Celia.  This video of a live performance of Quimbara is terrific, fantastic.  Just sublime.

Why am I happy?

Funny you should ask! 

I just chatted with Glenn Greenwald and he’s going to set up some time to talk on an upcoming conference call with our Roots Project volunteers ("Common People for the Common Good").  I’ve also just talked with a bunch of people from Drinking Liberally who are really excited about collaborating with us on the development of our Roots Project network.  This is all happening at an impromptu, informal gathering of netroots people that includes Atrios, Jane, Jennifer Nix, Matt Stoller, Chris Bowers, Ian Walsh, Matt Singer, Mike Stark, Matt O., Bob Geiger, Sterling Newberry, Simon Rosenberg, Tom Tomorrow and a whole bunch more people from other sites and progressive activist organizations whose names I have not yet memorized.  For me, this is the ultimate little gathering for movement development, and the stuff some of us are cooking up is far, far bigger than anything I can describe in a Late Nite post. And someone brought rum.

Jackpot! 

So, am I happy?  You’re damn right I am.  I’m so happy, I can’t express in words how happy I am.  So I had to let Celia bust out what I feel tonight.  Enjoy!
