Louis Armstrong — Now You Has Jazz, live in Sydney, Australia, March of 1963.
What’s on your mind?
g’evening folks…here’s the movie clip he references
how jazz was born (with danny kaye)
marching with danny kaye
birth of the blues with sinatra
Good evening. Finally sitting down after a day of doing odd chores and piddlin’ around.
Hope all is as well as can be expected. Trying to tone down my “expectations”! :)
hey openhope — how’s the sound doing tonight?
oh the johnny cash show
The Sound is busting out of the glorious dirt! It’s a joy to see.
I had to plant the garden late because of the horrible infestation of Tent Caterpillars. Wow! It may be just one planting with no rotation this year, but it sure is impressive.
we had a gloriously sunny day here too! don’t the chickens help control caterpillars?
Good hashtag on Twitter today: #DickCheneyFilms.
Some of my favorites:
“The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (in the Face)”
“The Man Who Shot Liberty”
“Honey, I Shrunk the Clinton Surplus”
“The Iraqi Horror Picture Show”
Johnny Cash….I love the story of the Cash family daughter, June Cash, a singer in her own right. And a woman I admired when I was living in the great western experience, the Silver Boom in Idaho, 1970′s.
She introduced a song in concert by saying,” Here’s a song that’ll put the c**t back in Country”.
Her parents were in the audience, unexpectedly.
She was so grounded!
hahahaha how ya doing tonight blue?
cheek to cheek with ella
Chicken’s do not help with caterpillars or any other problem you may have. Being helpful isn’t really part of their agenda.
hahahaha I had a comment to your Johnny Cash song. Damn, the fence is still there!
crap.. i thought they pecked for bugs and such
sorry — it was caught in the filters — i freed it with a minor edit — that word will always be caught in the filters
They do, they’re great at that. They’re just not very reliable for pest control. I’m told ducks are better, but duck shit is twice the size of chicken shit, and it all builds up. Ducks are louder then chickens.
We’re trying to decide on the whole Chicken thing. Whether to let it go or re-commit. Ay yi yi, that’s a tough one.
OK…a little pooped and I have to get up early tomorrow, so this is just a drive-by. Loved the Armstrong piece. Am not a jazz person per se, but Armstrong is a giant.
I’m at the place in life when I like the consistency, if nothing else. Long live FDL. Raises rebel fist.
tis a hard one….. fresh chicken that you know is good (and good for you) vs all that work raising them and then processing….
Before I disappear, you’ve piqued my curiosity. Any hints on THE WORD?
glad you like the armstrong :) glad ya stopped by for a driveby and a tune or two
sleep well and happy dreams
*raises rebel fist backatcha*
My favorite female power word, mournfully abused.

c’est si bon
(And to OpenHope at 26):
when you’re smiling
I had to beat my head against the FDL censorship of that word, even in circumstances when it was a clear definative image of an evil female power player.
I had to mature and accept boundaries.
grumble grumble :)
lurk was very patient and you were always gracious
Lurk was the best! I thought of him tonight reading Peterr’s piece. Actually, I always have Lurking Mod in my consciousness. Not stalking, just kind of there. I don’t know who Lurking Mod was, but I know a good person when I, um, don’t know who they are……
I’ll probably never “get it” that FDL is automated moderating in the real world, now.
lurk was a treasure… and easily bribed with dark chocolate covered pecans
new orleans with billie holiday
i’m gonna head out with sleepy time down south…
g’nite all — happy dreams
Yes, I do admire a Lurk easily bribed. But never compromised!
Good night, Suzanne and Token.
Horace Silver has passed.
