Robert Plant – Ship of Fools
A serious blast from the past…
Blind Faith – Can’t Find My Way Home
Btw, Happy Independence Day, India…!
What’s on your mind tonite…?
India celebrated its Independence Day by jailing the greatest Indian since Gandhi, Anna Hazare, to preempt his Fast. He and his supporters are trying to get corruption out of Government.
Aloha, Petro…! I was stunned when I heard that on the Beeb, they’d banned the whole fast protest…! 8-(
edit: Gandhi must be spinning in his grave…!
Aloha, Suz…! How was your day today…?
Good luck to them, this protest has a lot of grassroots support and also the support of many famous and powerful people in India.
Manmohan Singh could lose his Prime Ministership over this …
edit: Gandhi must be very proud of these Folks … it’s time to overthrow the corrupt Indian Raj !
A clever lad, but he can be a pest sometimes.
How do you guys keep up with everything that’s going on in the world? It’s a full time job.
Funny how they’re at least prosecuting cabinet ministers and all for corruption and financial shenanigans…! You’d think we might clue in eventually, eh…?
Aloha, tuez…! I try my best to keep up…! ;-)
Howdy all. Just dropping in for a few minutes.
The people who’ve been prosecuted thus far are the low hanging Fruit. The Ringleaders are still free and making Billion$, which is why Anna Hazare and his supporters are going full speed ahead.
Civil disobedience is the only solution …
Erm … we use teh toobz !
*Ducks and runs*
The video clips of the protests looked exactly like all the extras that had supported Ben Kingsley’s Oscar performance…! ;-)
hiya CT — still waiting for the special delivery?
Blind Faith — the best single album group in the history of 20th century, western popular music.
Aloha, PPD…! Yep, and she’s getting grumpier by the day…! ;-)
When do you have time for anything else?
That’s what I mean … tons of grassroots support. And Bollywood has thrown their full support behind him as well, so he is getting legions of fans to take notice.
Oh, man…”serious blast from the past,” indeed. I think I had the LP of this…one of my first album purchases.
Really evokes a particular, very different time for me.
Thanks. A choice that’s very familiar (even to me) for once.
And now, I’m too sleepy to stick around…soon as the clip finishes, I’m off, but had to express my thanks. In a moment here, I’ll be back from being nineteen years old…
Quite the assemblage of true legends, no doubt…! ;-)
Larue will be along shortly to dispute this … *g*
Is she hanging out in the recliner with the ejection button?
Aloha, tj…! Well alright…
I did my yoga exercises today. Must be why I’m ready to sleep at a reasonable hour. Had skipped a couple days…bad. Well, yesterday spent all afternoon in the pool…that was good, too.
Yoga class is on hiatus while teacher traveled, visited family, etc. Starts again in a week or two. Can’t believe how much I’m looking forward to it!
You only know how much you’ve advanced when you skip a few days …;-)
You’re just trying to make me stay up, aren’t you?
It occurs to me, maybe I didn’t have the album…almost forgot about 45′s…
Another blast from the past… A Whiter Shade of Pale…
sorry for the delay in replying — i’ve been cleaning up a flood in the kitchen. didn’t see the back sink faucet got turned on when i put the garbage canister sorta in that sink to finish draining. its too big for that tiny sink so part of the plastic inner can hung out over the lip to the storage bin below. water tricked down the face of the cabinet and there was about 4″ in an empty (thank goodness) storage bin below the sink and of course, that bin has no drain so it was drippiing onto the floor of the cabinet and then to the kitchen floor. oy
so if ya wanna know how my day was, well, a flooded kitchen is a pretty good metaphor…
I’ll make you feel better. Once, I left a faucet barely running (I was half asleep) in a sink that was kinda clogged. A few hours later I woke up and the water had overflowed the sink, went through floor to the ceiling below, then got caught up in the ceiling fan downstairs and was, well, dispersed but good.
Pretty sucky then, eh…? My condolences, Suz…!
Aloha, Margot…! How’s the Buckeye State tonite…?
i am hoping i caught it (it was also barely on) before it started dripping from the ceiling downstairs. so far i haven’t heard from my neighbor so i’ve got my fingers and toes crossed i caught it in time… thank goodness for that built in bin in that cabinet — had to be 4″ deep inside it
*ouch* That woulda truly sucked, tuez…!
No milk today…
After a soggy morning, I actually had a Sunny Afternoon..! ;-)
Good, thanks CT. There’s a county fair going on nearby and while there are no music groups I want to hear this year, I enjoy hearing the crowd noises as they go on the rides…and I like going to see the 4-H projects.
It was one of those situations where all I could really do was laugh. What are the chances an overflowing upstairs sink will run into a running ceiling fan in the basement?
I’d imagine, as you are on the Islands, you run your ceiling fans 24/7 as I do. They are just there. I give them not a thought-unless they stop working.
AND THE KILLIN’ GOEZ ON AND ON AND…
Citizen CTuttle and the late night Firepups:
Hey there Brother CTut you old salty dog…been up on your mountain lately lookin for Jimmi Hendrixx and The Pearl? I must say you DJ’s here on the night shift have real good tast in tunes (love the Blind Faith stuff). I don’t know if any of our younger crew of canine freedom fighters have heard of Buddy Guy but yesterday I got 2 of his 3 top end albums cut in his club in South Chicago between 1979-1981. I will be listenin to them durin’ some a those long, dark nights ahead here in Cheeseland when we get down and dirty and start feelin sorry for ourselves…lotsa work to do and need to listen to folks who understand that the blues and the struggle are all we got.
Gotta go ta bed…too old for the late nights…gotta be able to hit the ground runnin’ after the kids who never quit.
KEEP THE FAITH AND PASS THE AMMUNITION, THERE ARE NO CHOICES LEFT BUT TO FIGHT!
*heh* ‘Course there’s no basements here either…! ;-)
Does any one need a puppy?
Jesus Christ, does she ever sleep.
Ahhh, Kinks, Procul Harum, Blind Faith…mmm, nostalgia trip, indeed.
Norske, good to see you stop by…good luck in tomorrow’s elections.
Suze, sorry about your flood…horrible to clean up. Petro, tut, thanks for th enice words and the lovely music.
And now, like Norske, I must to sleep. G’nite!
Aloha, Norske…! Dayam, Buddy Guy…! I’m sooo jealous, Comrade…! Btw, Ya’ll kicked ass in Cheeseland, maybe Guv. Walker will be handed his walking papers, sooner rather than later…! Take no Prisoners…! *g*
Sweet dreams, tj…!
Tut, is it still raining where you are? All clear here. We could use some moisture. Please send.
Damn right I’ve got the blues…
i do love steve winwood.
watcha waitin to git special delivery, ct?
Now that is some good music.
Aloha, MM…! Not now, but, it’s been mighty soggy for the past week or so…!
I got a letter from Mazie today explaining how she was ‘forced’ to vote for the ‘Debt limit increase’…! I was stunned that she actually admitted it was a ‘manufactured’ crisis…! *gah*
Aloha, gw…! My Grandson-to-be…! 8-)
Aloha, CTuttle! Everybody!
*heh* My soon-to-be Higher Love…! ;-)
wow! is he your first grandchild?
Aloha, Mz…! A small heads up, I’m working the next two Tuesdays and won’t be able to attend, I sent Kelly a heads up too…!
I got a letter from her too. Didn’t even open it.
Crossed in the mail with the missive I sent to the “Hawaiian Democratic Party,” in response to their plea for funds.
Put a 2 cent stamp on the envelope so they’ll have to pay postage as well, just to get my “thoughts.”
thanks, ct. i needed that little dance interlude!
No problem; you are covered!
“Have you heard?” – Pat Metheny Group
I saw this today: October 6th, 2011 Local Contact Persons
CT, have you and Suzanne resurrected the “arranged marriage” thing for your two grandkids? Would save lots of problems later.
Yep, my first, gw…! ;-)
Hmmm… Food for thought there…! ;-)
He and his supporters are trying to get corruption out of Government.
No quicker way to get to jail these days.
Hiya, Pups, CT.
Go Sen. Leahy!
Ooh… Hot of the presses… Obama’s Heated Exchange After Event…
Yeah, I saw that. Here’s what the headline shoud have read….
Obama leaves Washington bubble, shocked to realise that Tea Party Republicans still hate his fucking guts despite all his bipartisan overtures and show absolutely no respect towards him at all.
Aloha, ET…! Sorry that my toobz are acting up now…! 8-(
Obama is *not*
“Rock Steady” – Aretha Franklin (Parker Remix)
for the People. He can’t even pretend it.
Hang in there. Raining cats and dogs and waterlogged eagles in Wasilla tonight.
Aloha, Janeane…! Great to see ya at LLN…! Sgt. Schultz was going off on his segment about Obummer’s pathetic response to a ‘collective bargaining’ question at one his stops…! ‘Everybody needs to come to the table’ and ‘Shared sacrifice’ was the gist of it…! What a Dickhead…! 8-(
the video keeps stopping and starting. too bad.
Hi all, have you seen the story about all the pollution our ex-corporations are pouring into the Chinese rivers? China needs EPA.
It’s been going on since the 1990s but has really ramped with even the possible extinction of fresh water dolphins (BBC, Aug. 8, 2007) and affecting roughly 10x the population of Canada (34 million people).
“Pollution to Protest” (Current.Com, May 31, 2007)
Aloha, ws…! I’ve Been Used…
“would save lots of problems later” ? Which extended family is going to move where? Jeez, there’s babies involved here!!!
Right now, I’d choose Hawaii. Come hurricane season, Oregon coast is looking pretty good…in a wet,gray way.
Dazed And Confused…
Aloha, open…! We’ll work out the logistics later…! ;-)
Great song, I forgot about the raw, early Yardbirds. One of my “influences”.
I’m confused with something on my mind tonight…..we’re in the serious AARP group being reached out to for polling information. Last standing landlines and people home to answer them. I signed a petition by Ron Paul to end these Wars, way back. Now I’m on every Repug mailing and robocall. Huckabee calls me more than Mr. Future Lobbyist, House Congressman Rick Larsen. She who must not be named is now sending us scary, wild eyed mailers. Also, John McCain, for some fucking pathetic reason.
My confusion: Do I seize the moment and answer every fucking bullshit poll, because we’re the demographic. Do I take the time to tell them all how awesome they are? Count me in on your approval rating, ya betcha?
I’ve been screening the robocalls, but , the human contact is coming next. I’m thinking it’s prison labor doing the personal calls. I always ask if they’re calling from a prison,…then try and have a few laughs, cuz their job sucks.
would save a lot of problems later
I was thinking of all that angst during the teenage years [particularly with girls].
You’d be able to reply, “Don’t worry about it. Your marriage is already arranged. No stressing over “dates” or “dating.” Now get back to your homework.”
One more Golden Oldie as I ride off into the sunset…! Ride Captain Ride…
Mahalo, and, Aloha Oe, ya’ll…! *g*
My husband got a robo-call from the NRA the other day. He wasn’t here, so I picked up. It was a recorded message from LePierre, NRA pres.
He repeated again and again that “the UN, on American soil, is going to take away your gun rights.”
Then they asked if [the recipient of the call] would “approve of the UN, on American soil, taking away our gun rights.” They must have repeated that phrase 4 or 5 times in the routine of asking the question.
I responded that “yes, it was okay with me for the UN . . . ”
Hope that shuts the fuckers up.
That should work out well. :]
I’m jumping ahead to when somebody has to move far away! I’m a Bollywood drama all in myself. I can start with the emptiness of having your child leave and work my way back to actually raising said child!
I devote most of my efforts to writing nasty remarks on the pleas I get from Obama, the DNC, DSCC, DCCC and OFA.
But somehow I got on some crazy list for Bush. Had to write a few more responses to get off that one.
I’ll have to ask husband, who’s out of town for two weeks, how he thinks he got on NRA’s list.
Usually replying to all those Democratic calls & letters keeps me busy.
The Dems don’t send me too much these days. Probably because I ended our long term relationship and went Independent last year. I think they just don’t give a damn. Or, they’re the best ex-boyfriend I ever had. No is No.
Sweet dreams, CTuttle. Thank you for the good music.
Hope you and Mrs.T are warming up on a couple mellow songs to sing over and over and over and over….:]
