Five for May 17th:
Last night. Fast ride home despite the brutal headwinds, followed by Jane’s end-of-the-schoolyear picnic at the park. The kids had some Ted Drewes and ran themselves ragged. Good times.
Blame it on McCain. Everything that is happening with regard to the current presidency and state of modern Republican politics can be traced back to the moment John McCain introduced Sarah Palin- and with her new, never-before-seen levels of acceptable ignorance and cartoonish stupidity- onto the people of the United States. She normalized the idea of the proud idiot in office. She is ground zero. Mitochondrial Eve. The blueprint for everything that came after. I guess my point is, John, you made this bed- and now you get to sleep in it.
Vintage Vinyl poster haul. Detroit Cobras, the Cars, Screeching Weasel, Black Lips, Tad, John Coltrane.
Cool stuff. Work coffee restock, free Jeff Beck stickers, At a Besieged White House, Tempers Flare and Confusion Swirls, new episodes of Sherlock, SCS H-Street blowouts.
