Nina Simone — Ain’t Got No… I’ve Got Life, at the Harlem Cultural Festival, 1969.
What’s on your mind?
just driving by…and saw your music choice! I love it!
My dad has been seriously ill and I emailed “I Got Life” to my brothers to cheer them up.
hey dosido — so good to see your fonts but i’m so sorry to hear about your dad (((dosido))) i’ll be sending him some warm positive healing thoughts and prayers
My Dad is wearing a sock instead of a shoe. Cleveland is a pit of kidnapping and rape. Oh, Hello!
hey ce — i need to apologize to you. i didn’t see ya come into last nights thread — i’m so sorry that i didn’t greet you properly.
how ya doing tonight?
I am fine, and MrCE is sleeping upright in his chair, so I’m clearly minutes away from leaving.
*whew* what a horrible week for your town… joy yet…
Sunshine here, and I am working like a demon to rid the house of pollen coming in the windows. Green dust everywhere.
its been dusty here too — k, the hired girl, was here monday and said that as she was sweeping it up, more just kept showing up. its been breezy
Sucks to be us…
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! I swear we’re amidst a Revolution…! ;-)
the good news is that it will soon drift out of the news cycle as the media hounds move on to the next whatever… be it a shit filled cruise ship or trial of the century or whatever they can find to sensationalize.
aloha tut — how’s paradise? maybe you understand me now
Some stations were less horrible. Others, here we go.
yeah, we had that at the clackamas town center mall shooting … i swear, sometimes its like the local news folks are doing on camera auditions for cnn or fox *shaking head in disgust*
i loved how jon stewart called cnn out for its shit tonight
how it feels to be free
Mighty voggy here in Hilo town, I swear you could cut it with a butter knife…! Other than that it was a great day…! ;-)
at least its not a work night tut — congrats on getting the ln slot tonight
I was most certainly pleased to lead-in, M’dear…! ;-)
tut — am i right in thinking the vog causing volcano is not the same mt that the telescopes are on?
i put a spell on you
why (the king of love is dead)
Not at all, all of it generated at Kilauea, on the slopes of Mauna Loa, and, on the opposite side of Mauna Loa, from Mauna Kea…! Typically, all that vog is directed at the Kona side, and nails Honolulu…! The typical trades are sorely lacking, so we’re suffering from the majority of the vog…!
i was thinking that it was the other one but… my memory isn’t as sharp as it used to be :)
1961 version of the house of the rising song
mississippi goddam 1964 protest song that was banned in several southern states
Anyone watching Call the Midwife? They are now into the 1950s …. and the musical background brings me back in time. I was a kid… but I can’t imagine how women suffered in those days. Mind=blowing. And that the rightists want to go back…. so disheartening!
hey dearie — i heart call the midwife! how’s the beach tonight?
Lovely, of course, at the beach…. I wasn’t in the path of the recent fire. Hope I won’t be in any future path!
Working hard. Depositions after depositions. Mostly torn rotator cuffs.
And, to go off track for a moment, when did we start hating Assad of Syria? What’s our beef? And will the rebels come over here to help us if we declare civil war against our own oligarchs?
*heh* I can see the volcanic glow from Kilauea, from atop MK, Mon. nite it was glowing britely…! ;-)
when he turned his army on his own people iirc…
sweet! that would be an awesome photo dood
But, Suz, he was one of our guys when he’d rendered individuals for the CIA, basically, during the same time-frame Qadaffi was doing so…! 8-(
yup — but now he’s not doing what we want anymore…
So now we’re all singing the Backlash Blues…!
And, because the immigration “debate” is so stupid, I’m just going to throw this out. I live by the strawberry fields. No one who comes to pick strawberries expects their own children to pick strawberries. Second generation works at McDonalds… or even goes to college! And another group of strawberry pickers must be recruited. No one is talking sense about immigration. Idiots!
born under a bad sign
if they really wanted to fix the ‘immigration problem’ they would… just like health care and jobs and the shrinking middle class and clean air and too big to fail. if they wanted to fix these problems, they would. they sure fixed the flight delay problem quick.
It’s all such nonsense. I’m ashamed of the stupidity. And impotent to change any of it. Whatever………….
*heh* If they actually paid a living wage(say $20+ a Hr) to slave in the hot sun, I’d so be there…! I truly enjoy working the soil…! ;-)
i h-a-t-e feeling helpless and i am so pissed about congress for making me feel that way.
And I would really like health care for the people who pick the lettuce I might buy and the restaurant food I might pay for. The elites are so stupid and selfish that they cannot see the big picture. And I’m getting really, really tired of that lack of understanding. Ya know?
blues for mama
Sorry if I harshed your thread, Suz, but thanks for letting me vent. I’m really, really tired of the folks who are supposed to be our govt. They suck.
Walk your dog…. and enjoy your life! Hugs……..
you didn’t harsh the thread at all dearie…. lln is for folks to talk about whatever they want — and i was agreeing with every word you typed
i am gonna go walk token but not because of you — its solely because he’s giving me that impatient little jig by the front door.
g’nite all – thank you for letting me spend some time with ya’ll tonight
Sweet dreams, Suz…!
Btw, M’dear, I’m the main killah of threads, evah…! I swear…! ;-)
Dearie I totally hear you. My post below about comeuppance was trying to articulate some of that same frustration.
I am angry and I want to take out my angry in a way that punishes the people who push the divide.
But now I’m in a world where I have to suck up and kowtow to the jerks who believe in their Ayn Rand Worlds. A world were ego are huge and some actually become Galts. So people around them adopt that attitude. Speaking of Silicon Valley start ups. I’m sure the same is happening in finance and lobbying/politics.
You hang out with these people all the time and their selfish heartless world view seems right. And since you are counting on their Largess to survive you don’t argue politics with them. So the cycle continues.
People used to talk about having. “Fuck you money” so they could leave and get another job. Now you can’t even do that since jobs don’t exist unless you have enough fuckyou money for the rest of your life.
I’m very down of employment these days and I’m hating myself because if it. Read my post, it’s not as dark as this one.
I have to watch out for becoming too angry or depressing in a post. Not always enlightening or fun to read. And people want fun to read or interesting.

It’s a razor thin line, spocko…!
