The Widdershins

Hello Widdershins! Happy Sunday!

So let’s see, has anything happened? Anything at all? Hmm… Oh yeah, Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide and Donald Trump tweeted a meme blaming the Clintons for murdering him. Mind you, Trump wasn’t the only one doing that. Bernie Sanders supporters did the same thing. So there you are.

On to more pleasant weekend shenanigans. This week I noticed something: the days are getting noticeably shorter. I know it’s still only middle of August, but the seasons have been so crazy this year that I think summer is over and Autumn is just around the corner. So, in anticipation of cooler temperatures (one hopes) and Autumn, let’s do Autumn/cold weather themed songs.

Good Weekend Widdershins

So this past week we had the second of twenty-three quilizion Democratic candidate debates.  Actually I’m not sure how many are scheduled but I know the next one is set for September in Houston Texas.  I’ll add a widget for that later.

Purportedly the idea is to present all the candidates who want to run as the Democratic nominee and have them answer some questions about their positions on various issues.  Then, Democratic voters and the public at large can make a choice on who they prefer and want to support.

So it comes down to choices, and with that in mind let’s take a look at some songs about choices.  Choice or choices can be in the title or lyrics, or it can involve decisions or anything similar.  No strict rules here.

Hello Widdershins!!!! Happy Weekend!

Our Fredster is trying to stay safe from Barry: let’s keep an eye out on this storm and Fredster, please be safe!

I know I’ve been MIA for a bit; I got so burned out by the craziness of it all that I just had to step back, not go back to Twitter, barely read the news. And you know what? Ignorance really is much more blissful. Not following every Trump fart can have a positive effect on your life!! But, of course, one can’t sit there with one’s head buried in the sand. As Al Franken wisely said right after Trump’s election: Folks, this is going to be a marathon, not a sprint. And so it is…

But I am happy to be back amongst friends here, I will try to be less absent as we get ready for the election of our lifetimes.

As far as our musical theme this weekend: let’s do a free-for-all. Dig up your favorite and maybe forgotten songs and melodies!

I will begin with – who else – Madge! This Oscar performance of Stephen Sondheim’s “Sooner or Later,” written for her and the film Dick Tracy, is stunning. She sings the hell out of it. (The song went on to win the Oscar.) And keep an eye on her huge diamond earrings and when one of them falls off.

Let’s take a mini-break from the horrors of the news and celebrate the official coming of beach weather! I think we can take a bit of consolation from the fact that Drumpf’s threatened ICE raids this weekend melted in the summer sun.

Here are a few summer ditties for you all, please contribute your own in comments!

Open thread, of course.

Good afternoon Widdershins

 

I had a different post in mind for the weekend, but yeah, fuck that.  And no, it wasn’t going to be a GoT thing.

No, after this week it’s time to let your musical voices come out in anger!  Shout it out.

I’ll put up a few songs but I fully expect y’all to provide lots of them yourselves.

Open thread of course but hope you’ll add some of your own in the comments.

Saw this sometime ago on Maddow and it was probably cuter when the number of Democratic candidates wasn’t large enough to field an NFL football team. Nevertheless, I will persist.

Maddow mentioned at the time how many “B” guys we had running:

  • Cory Booker
  • Pete Buttigieg
  • Beto O’Rourke
  • Bernie Sanders (and now)
  • Joe Biden

So I recalled that this weekend and thought about songs that have words in them or their titles that begin with the letter “B”.

There are more than you would think and here are a few I thought of and found.

Happy Weekend Widdershins!!!

I know I’m mostly MIA these days, but fear not, I’m around. How’s everybody doing?

One interesting thing happened since MB’s post on William Barr’s letter trying to save Trump’s ass “NO COLLUSION!” is that late on Friday William Barr sent another letter (dude likes to write letters). This time he says he will submit the full 400-page Mueller Report, with redactions that they are working on now, that they currently do not intend to submit the Report to the White House for approval beforehand. (Chair of the House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler has said he rejects Barr’s timeline and expects to have the full un-redacted report in a few days. Stay tuned for how that works out…)

But the funnest part of Barr’s 2nd missive was this:

Oh…….how interesting. This is, of course, disingenuous. The original letter was presented as a summary of the Mueller Report and certainly every pathetic reporter who has been presenting it as such. Trump and all the Republican have been using it that way. Barr’s need to correct the record on that suggests that the Mueller Report does not quite exonerate Trump the way Barr wanted us to believe. So we see-saw up and down up and down I’ve got whiplash ya’ll!

And on that note, William Barr trying to un-do, re-do, walk-back, try again, “oops did I do that?” his first letter is our musical inspiration for the weekend.
