The Widdershins

Archive for the ‘lazy weekend’ Category

Happy Sunday everyone. Are we having a good weekend? I thought we’d do a ‘cities and towns’ theme today. I don’t have any real commentary, so let’s get started. Band name, song about a city/town or song title.

John Mellencamp – Small Town

Journey – City By The Bay

Petula Clark – Downtown

Atlanta Rhythm Section – Imaginary Lover

Glen Campbell – Galveston

Bruce Springsteen – Streets of Philadelphia

Okay, there are quite a few obvious choices out there. Let’s see ’em!

Open Thread.

Happy Sunday Widdershins!

Let us put aside that rabid orange turd. Let us hear music that makes you happy. What songs give you joy? What tunes make you smile? What rhythms makes you tap your foot.

This is an open thread!

This is Madonna’s happiest and most perfect love song. Video directed by Herb Ritts.

Hi all! How’s your weekend going? If I had a dollar for every time I’ve used the words stupid or dumb over the past three years, I could buy a good used car. Still, when describing Trump, stupid or dumb is lame. I’m not talking about ignorant or uniformed or uneducated (although he is that, too). I mean profoundly stupid. Deeply dumb. So very, very, very stooopid.

I guess we’ve all done something stupid in our lives. I have a few regrets. I don’t recall any ‘hold my beer’ moments. Then again, maybe I just can’t recall any. Here are a few stupid people. There’s stupid and drunk

An Austin man is facing charges for running over a woman as she attempted to sprint across a road to prove to she could “run fast in heels” and driving away, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by Fox News.

The woman was walking back from a local bar around 2:30 a.m. Saturday with her sister when an unidentified male asked if she could run in the shoes she was wearing. To prove her talents, the woman then started to run across the road.

A maroon SUV hit and dragged the woman roughly 15 yards during her attempt to get to the other side of an intersection along Interstate 35, the Austin Police Department said in the affidavit.

Ouch. That stupidity combined with alcohol landed her in the hospital with a brain bleed. Sad. Then, there’s stupid and racist

An Iowa woman fired for disparaging Mexicans at work cannot collect unemployment despite her testimony that other employees also made derogatory comments about “blacks and foreigners” since Donald Trump became president.

Angela Diers filed for unemployment after she lost her job at Dexter Laundry, a Fairfield manufacturer of commercial washers and dryers, for telling a co-worker that she hated “f—ing Mexicans.”

Iowa’s Employment Appeals Board ruled that Diers’ statements clearly met the definition of misconduct and disqualified her from collecting unemployment benefits. The board reversed Administrative Law Judge Beth Scheetz, who said Diers deserved unemployment benefits.

The most amazing thing is the initial judge ruled in her favor before the Appeals Board overturned. (although she may have been trying to make a point)

Since President Trump’s election, it was common for workers to talk about hating blacks or hating foreigners,” Scheetz wrote in her ruling. “If management wishes all workers to be treated with respect, it must enforce respectful treatment amongst co-workers and supervisors, and apply those expectations consistently throughout the chain of command.”

Doubly stupid for using the dumbest man on the planet as an excuse. Then, there’s stupid and horny

Chinese married couple—who were desperately trying to conceive—learned they had been having sex the wrong way for four years.

The young pair, whose identities have been kept anonymous, went to see obstetrician Liu Hongmei after the woman failed to get pregnant despite having sex on a regular basis, reported the Guiyang Evening News. During their appointment, the woman admitted that sex was “usually painful,” which prompted Liu to perform a gynecological examination.

“The couple were very young, the man 26 and the woman 24. They were very healthy, but, despite being married for four years, couldn’t conceive,” Liu said. “Their family was giving them a lot of stress because of it.”

The results were unexpected. Liu discovered that the couple, from Bijie city in China’s south-western Guizhou province, had mistakenly been having anal intercourse rather than vaginal to conceive.

Welp. Let’s just move on to an oldie but goodie. Stupid and fanatical

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — The son of a snake-handling Kentucky preacher who died from a snakebite says he’s recovering from his own rattlesnake wound.

Cody Coots, 21, took over services at Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name in Middlesboro after his father, Jamie Coots, died after being bitten during a service in February.

Since they don’t believe in medical treatment for bites (God’s will ‘ya know), I wonder if he’s still alive. Don’t care. How about stupid and armed?

WARREN, Ohio – A man in Warren was injured after being shot by a gun that went off while it was in his oven.

Police said the incident happened on Riverview Avenue on the city’s Northwest side Sunday evening.

Detectives told 21 News the man placed a revolver in the broiler section of the oven to keep it safe.

A woman who lives at the home then started using the oven to cook when the gun went off, according to police.

Detectives said the man was in the basement at the time and did not know the woman was cooking.

When he heard the first shot, he ran upstairs and tried to get the gun out of the oven, but it was too hot.

It fired again, striking him twice, according to police.

Who knew the broiler may not be the best place to stash your gun? Finally, stupid and rich. Although I shouldn’t really call Kim Kardashian stupid. She’s made a mint for… pretty much nothing. But, she can spend her money stupidly.

Kim Kardashian may not be able to keep Kanye from blaming black people for slavery, but there’s still one man in her life she can control.

That man is her dog, Rocky, whom she had neutered, as any responsible pet owner would do.

Strangely, she has reportedly purchased fake testicles for him … for a whopping $10,000.

Allegedly, she purchased the Neuticles and had them implanted because she wanted to help Rocky’s self-esteem.

Way back in the simpler times of 2012, Kim Kardashian told The Independent that she “doesn’t like big balls on dogs, or anything else.”

All we can do is laugh at these idiots. I hope y’all got a good laugh out of these, ’cause we sure need something to laugh about.

Hi everyone! Hope your weekend is going well. Let’s add some color to our world today. I’ve always been fascinated by the effect of color on our psyches. They say lighting sets the mood. Well, color sets the emotion. My 6 year old niece asked me “What’s your favorite color?”. I really couldn’t answer that because I love certain shades of all colors. Maybe that’s weird.

So, let’s look for colors, shades, metallics, etc. Fredster did a music post themed ‘having the blues’ not too long ago and we found tons of ‘blue songs’, so I’m going to do some other colors. I’ll start with a few obvious, easy ones.

The Outlaws – Green Grass and High Tides

Coldplay – Yellow

Bob Marley – Red, Red Wine

Procol Harum – Whiter Shade of Pale

Okay, my internet keeps glitching so I’ll try to add more in the comments. Open Thread.

Happy weekend Widdershins. I’d like to say things are looking up, but they really aren’t much are they? We’ve won a few elections, so good. Then, one vicious policy, grifting, criminal act after another comes oozing out of this administration. Oh well, we’ll look up anyway.

I know I’ve been eyeing the sky a lot lately. After a week of rain, the heat came back and brought storm after storm rolling through. Fortunately no tornadoes, but occasional high winds that can topple trees. Those can run me to the basement!

So let’s look to the sky for inspiration this week. Songs about the celestial, links to an amazing weather phenomenon, or beautiful pics of the galaxy beyond. The sky’s the limit!

Bad Company – Shooting Star

Don McLean – Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)

Train – Drops of Jupiter

Eric Clapton – Tears in Heaven

Frankie Avalon – Venus

Actually, the sky is not the limit ’cause this is an open thread!

Congratulations all, we’ve made it through another week. Our reward for that should be that we can relax, take it easy and appreciate all that is good. One of which is critters.

We’re all critter crazy here because they bring so much joy. They bring down blood pressure, create happiness and general well being.  Doesn’t matter if they’re cute, cuddly and furry. They can be hairless, scaly or feathered. We love all crits. (new word) For instance, do you remember a few years back when some guy ignored a ‘Caution – Alligators’ sign  and drunkenly screamed “f*ck the gaters”, jumped in and was never seen again? I love that gator. He or she is special. I really love that gator. That was one less… no, I won’t say it because I’m trying to keep politics out of my post, at least.

So, let’s try for animals today. Anything animal related. Name of the band, title of the song or just an animal in general. If you’re stumped, just share some critter links or gifs. We love it all.

Heart – Barracuda

Lobo – Me & You and a Dog Named Boo

Survivor – Eye of the Tiger

America – Horse With No Name

Seals & Croft – Hummingbird

Good Weekend Widdershins! Seriously, how are we suppose to keep up with all of this? We’ve got 25 Russians indicted whose names I can’t pronounce, let alone spell. We’ve got a bunch more newly sanctioned Russians, same. We’ve got Manafort, Gates, Page, Papadopoulos and even Tad Devine. We’ve got Stone, Assange, Rohrbacher, Guiliani. We’ve got a Russian honeypot situation offering sex for a position in an “political special interest group” (come on – it’s the NRA), thus we have US Person1s and US Person2s. We’ve got the Trump kids, especially Jr. Oops, I almost forgot Flynn. Can you imagine the flow chart in Mueller’s office?

I definitely think Michael Cohen will start naming names to cover his own bee-hind. Or maybe he’ll just let his tapes speak for him. (Lordy, there are tapes!) Manafort, I’m not so sure about. He knows they have him dead to rights on so many charges, he’s going to prison for a looong time. While my head spins trying to keep up with it all and connect the dots, I’m pretty sure I know the name of at least one person who has it all down pat. Robert Mueller.

Let’s do some songs today that name names. Here’s a few to start us off.

Elton John – Daniel

Janis Joplin – Me & Bobby McGee

John Denver – Annie’s Song (sorry about the silliness at the beginning)

Fleetwood Mac – Rhiannon

Johnny Cash – A Boy Named Sue

And last, but not least…

YG & Nipsey Hussle – FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)
