Kentucky Headhunters – It’s Chitlin Time
Some more Counter Culture…
Delbert McClinton – Squeeze Me In
Ain’t America grand…?
What’s on your mind tonite…?
Aloha CT! When I saw the word “chitlin” I was prepared to see a tune from the old “chitlin circuit” days, so this is an interesting pick :-) And Delbert’s always cool too…
Aloha, LL…! How’s NoVa tonite…?
Sharks beat LA!! on my mind….
Aloha, nahant…! So where’s the series at now…?
A tad warm and muggy for my taste lately – but otherwise all’s good; how are the isles?
hey nahant, congrats to the Sharks!
evening, CT –
Ditto that here…! I almost want some more rain to cool it down a bit…! High’s are starting to creep up into the mid-to-hi 80′s…!
Aloha, PPD…! How’s Cali tonite…?
Followed Margaret’s concern on Late Nite, but too late to comment. Hope all is well…Hiya Pups!
Same here – perfect spring/summer for me would be around 70 ;-)
Aloha, CE…! How’s the Lakefront doing tonite…?
Hi PPD, how goes?
It was a dark and stormy night… perhaps tornados too!
Hey! How’s everything in your yard?
*ouch* Is that from the same storm that had lashed St. Louis yesterday…?
Hey Tut, good music tonight! :-D
AND THE KILLIN’ GOEZ ON AND ON AND…
Aloha Brother CT, you old broken down low-quarter…how’s the view from your own personal mountain observatory, old man?
Really wish you could get out here to the heartland of democracy and the anus of progress to help us chase some fascist bloodsuckers into the light of day…shit, tryin ta find anyone who voted for our senator is like tryin ta find a Nazi in Berlin in 1946. But from the little bit I hear about whats happenin’ in the politics of the Aloha State, what with Inouye pissed off bigtime at a corporatist opportunist and the Governor gettin’ called out as a liar by Donald Trump, I guess they might need ya more back at home.
How ya been?
KEEP THE FAITH AND PAS THE AMMUNITION AND DO IT TO THEM BECAUSE THEY’VE ALREADY DONE IT TO YOU!!
I have a suggestion for LLN on Friday, CT.
So, did any of the LLN pups hear me trip all over my lips at the webinar earlier…? ;-)
Boy I hope not! But the days have been horrible. Rain, wind, rain, cold. I’m sick of it all!
They beat them and go on to the next round!!!
Aloha, Comrade Norske…! You’re kicking serious ass and taking everybody’s name…! ;-)
Oh I don’t have a yard – condo-dweller here – but I’m on the 1st level and the azaleas outside my windows are going like gangbusters the past couple of days…really showy, I love them. How does your garden grow?
CT, no I had to miss it, busy afternoon – how did it all go?
Suz has Fri. Nites…! I’ve got the honors for Sun. and Mon. nites…! Fire away tho, I’m usually game…! ;-)
Hi Norske, I’ve read some of what you’ve said here late at night lately – great stuff, rock on!
It was awesome…! Great discussion, except my sudden inability to articulate words…! ;-)
MrCE and I worked in the yard two weeks ago for the first time in years. Three hours gave us a great clearing for our hostas and such. MsCE and I plan to enlarge the front garden to contain more than tomatoes and basil — potatoes and radishes I think!
I was workin. But never got my e-mail.. Gotta talk to Suz about that. Hope these happenins will be viewable after the fact? Our busy season has kicked in an my hours will be all over the place.
I’m thinkin’ — We’re Going to have a Wedding — from Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride for Friday LLN.
Oooh that sounds nice – do you have any of those raised beds? Maybe you could do some lettuces too.
*heh* You even liked my Delbert selection…? ;-)
Nothing to see about it, it was all audio, I’d like to see a podcast made available afterwards tho…! Marcy really did a great job hosting it too…!
one from the chitlin circuit
Oh btw FDLers – I had an email from Ryan a few days ago informing me that some kind soul out there provided a membership for me! I was thrilled! Should be a card-carrying professional lefty in just a few weeks ;-)
*heh* In honor of the Royals, eh…? I like the way ya think…! ;-)
Right On, LL…! Ain’t the Lake grand…? *g*
Grander than grand! At the time I made my plea several weeks back I was on medical leave from work and didn’t have the extra scratch; I promised Ryan I would pay it forward as soon as I could, and I should be able to do so shortly – I’m retiring next week and whenever things shake out, I’ll deliver :-)
That’s kinda the way folks roll around here, and if ya asked there woulda been plenty given too…all that’s expected is ya do the same for someone else when ya ken.
nice to see all and thanx CTuttle for hosting and sending pleasant breezes,
Now had i got the e-mail i would know that. Video would be good, might keep some from driving nekkid.
Some Bonnie Bramlett and Delbert McClinton…
This is such a great community here Norske; I guess I always knew it on one level but now it’s realized for me in a personal way, and it feels good. It’ll feel even better soon when I’m able to return the favor :-)
*heh* Like Kris had planned to do, eh…? ;-0
thank you ks, nice to see you!
I’m still rolling around in my head the ‘masterplan’ to get the wingnuts to demand higher taxes in the next cycle. muahaha
Really wish you could get out here to the heartland of democracy and the anus of progress to help us chase some fascist bloodsuckers into the light of day
You are so awesome, man!
Aloha, kspopulist…! Great to see ya at LLN..! ;-)
Aloha, ET…! Col. Wright said she’s going to be on the next Gaza Flotilla…! She’s so awesome…!
The last medley of TCB is great, CT — as long as the entire country is obsessed with royal weddings and sh-t for brains under the worst combover in the history of the republic.
Yes. I didn’t recognize your name, but I figured by the “aloha” that it must be you.
LL, what’s the status of tulips there? Are they up + gone, or still around?
Like a special bipartisan plan to demand a SEC revamp, make regulation a priority.
Yes, tie speculative gas and food prices to ill-gotten tax-breaks in finance, get mortgage interest rates controlled and infinitely-backed banks thru dual QE’s to finally see that Santa Claus has been watching who’s naughty and nice…
and bring accountability to the economy.
For without it nobody wants to invest in anything!
thanx CT, LL
and CE, Norske, always an inspiration!
Hi MM, someone across the way from me has a few in front of their terrace – but on the whole they’re done. It’s azalea time in NoVA right now :-)
Aloha, M’dear…! *heh* It was a dead giveaway…! I had a brain fart on Leavenworth’s Disciplinary Barracks…! ;-)
Been awhile since I have made it here but damn I love those two people .. evening CTut .. great to see all the folks .. /s
Hey ET. I got my battery back from China!!! I was so worried it was a $900 batt. I bought a component a few weeks back from an outfit in Cali and it was broke from moment one. An now they are out of buisness. Guess we cant trust the new high tech electrics in America. China has it.
Ooh-ooh, what a cool clip…
Aloha, tearloch…! It has been awhile…! How’s BC doing…?
I’m just going to slip this in here, as it’s almost the only thing I can feel good about these days.
tearloch! how’s it going?
Am well, but have been away and busy and distracted by hockey and grand-kids and thinking up Easter jokes ..
Aloha, Starbuck, that song always cheers me up…! How’s Oregon tonite…?
Must run but wanted to say hello in passing .. be well all .. keep the faith and re-load as needed … /g
Beautiful choice Starbuck :-)
good to see you, take care!
Pleasant Dreams, tearloch…!
I’ll raise you an awesome.
Here’s Col. Wright with Tlingit activist Diane Benson in Anchorage three years ago, when Wright was talking about her book supporting whistleblowers. I took the picture.
that’s cool, never seen/heard that one before!
this one is a bit different, but ‘homegrown’ in several neat ways
Gotta split, getting very sleepy out here in the east…thank you CT, aloha and good night all!
Sweet dreams, LL…!
Heck yeah – can Kevin McKendree play piano or what?
She’s an Isle resident and has worked extensively with the local LBGT community here to get the Same-Sex marriage bill passed…! She’s a dynamo…! ;-)
Hi CT and everyone, like the tunes:)
Not that good. I had a pretty good job lined up but it went to someone else… It was only for 2 months so…?
Aloha, Margot…! Mahalo…! You getting that same dark and gloomy weather as CE…?
That bites, Starbuck…! 8-(
Nice picks CT . . . Here’s The Other Kentucky Band.
Might not recognize the names, but aside from Ricky Skaggs, those other cats are some of the hottest pickers in the bluegrass genre still today, n that was ’07 I think.
Got to see them once, in about ’07 or early ’08. Monsters, every one of them. A real bluegrass super group.
Can’t stay, but nice vids Pups n you posted in comments, too.
Best to you all, hold ‘em close n keep the torches wet n pitchforks sharpened!
Things really slow.
I still want to get a post up here about this Portland water stuff, but the fellow I need to finesse and answer questions has been really busy. We had a rally Friday that resulted in him getting into a Councillors face big time!
I also note that there is a whole software thingy about doing blogs Word Press etc. WTF is Word Press and do I need to know it?
Shudda been in Portland Friday, Larue.
Always liked the edge. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avX5VlU7MXM
Aloha, and aloha, Larue…! ;-)
What is your Question about WP, inparticular…! The actual posting process…? Or what…?
How far into it do I need to go just to post a basic diary entry, I guess. Do I need to pay any attention at all, or if I don’t does it result in an awkward post?
I have enough experience with software to realize that if a specific software is part of the process, you better get with it or go somewhere else.
Now here is an interesting monkey wrench the State Department may throw at you to get a passport:

CT, do you know Eric Gilliom?
Went to see him & his sister Amy on Sat. night. Really love him [and her].
If you’re posting at myFDL, it’s easy-peasy…! It’s basically like writing a comment, you don’t need to be worried about the format, etc… It’s pre-formatted, type in your title, jump to the body and start typing basically… Hit ‘save draft’ periodically and ‘preview’ it, then ‘publish’ it…! ;-)
I sent a contribution to Young’s campaign, after being contacted by my friend in Fairbanks.
Start with a simple one:
• Go to MyFDL (the blue button in the upper-left of your browser window)
• On the right, in your Toolbox, click “Write Post” – a new blank diary opens
• Enter a title, body, and excerpt where indicated
• On the right, click “Publish”
Oh yeah, They’re legends here…! I’m jealous…! ;-)
Edit: I’ve seen her with Uncle Willie K…!
Here’s Amy. I’m looking for the two of them.
ZZZip nadda not a thing. This is up to you ET. And i cant wait….
*heh* So was I…! They rarely play together, Uncle Willie and her have played a lot together…! I’m not sure if they were ever married, but they were an item…
Yeah, Willie K plays here A LOT.
Here’s Eric + Barry Flanigan [of Hapa] + Kui Lee’s most fabulous song:
That’s what I thought also, TLM, until I saw the line labelled Manual Excerpt, which I clicked and saw this:
“Note: As of WordPress version 3.1, some screen options on the Post & Page edit Administration Panels are hidden by default. The Excerpt field is hidden by default if it has not been used before.” Of course, there are additional links and still more and suddenly: Uh oh! So I decided to cut to the chase and see where I need to land.
If you search YouTube for Willie K, you will find several clips of him singing OPERA!! He has an AMAZING voice!!! I mean, you know it’s amazing just listening to him sing his “regular” stuff, but listening to him sing opera. It blows you away.
Congrats on the century mark…!
You don’t need to mess with anything…!
He does have an awesome voice and he knows how to play a guitar, slack key or otherwise…! ;-)
You watching Hawaii 5-0, I like to watch it to see all the cameos by many local stars and celebrities… Last week Chef Sam Choy had a cameo…! ;-)
Ha! Nice to know I hit 100. I didn’t even look!
Ok, I’ll just post it, as soon as I can get my colleague to get in step. Hopefully in the next couple of days. He is strategic in answering questions and fielding comments as I have mostly a generalist understanding of the problems.
If i were making a diary i would first be looking where the fuck was my Strunk an Wright.
I don’t know the Oahu scenes. They need to come on over to Maui. Used to in the original series.
Al Harrington [from the original series] is on this episode. He has not aged well.
Ah, “The Elements of Style”. I wouldn’t expect a diary to be stylish, but it is a good thought.
Don’t know if Strunk or White would consider “fuck” stylish in any way!
*heh* Grammar is so outdated…! ;-)
Crap i had it right the first time it’s White.
With that, I’ll check out for the evening. Writing and reading here did get me cheered up a bit.
Nite all, and thanks!
Never hurts to have a platform to build from.
They did an episode each on Molokai and Kauai…! No Big isle, nor Maui yet…!
Aloha, Starbuck…! I look forward to reading it…! ;-)
Well, I shall bid ya’ll another fond adieu…! Mahalo for the great conversations tonite…! Aloha Oe…! *g*
