Good Weekend Widdershins

This is going to be a very quick post shinners because Fredster has been feeling quite, uh, not well the last few days or so. He had an appointment with his doctor and was feeling so lousy that he canceled the appointment and said he’d get back with them next week.  I’m sure the doctors have heard that before.

So, moving along, lililam mentioned something about weather and fire and rain.  Yep, the left coasters have been dealing with their usual fires and Santa Ana winds.  While fires may not be meteorological in nature the winds that magnify them are.  And we here on the bottom coast are dealing with late season Tropical Storm Olga.  Earlier in the evening it looked like a big, ugly blob out in the Gulf of Mexico.

So let’s look at some songs about the weather since there’s nothing we can really do about it.

An obvious choice:

Alright Widdershins there ya go.  Feel free to add some of your own songs if you wish.

Open thread goes without saying.

“Just because something isn’t a lie does not mean that it isn’t deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”

“Things come apart so easily when they have been held together with lies.”

― Dorothy Allison, Bastard Out of Carolina

Happy and good weekend Widdershins

We could also just say plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose, n’est pas?

Nothing changes, he’s still a lying pile of steaming excrement and most likely his final utterance with his dying breath will also be a lie of some type.  Again, nothing changes right?

Sooo, let’s look at some songs about lies, liars, and the lies they tell.  I looked around for some new ones and hope you enjoy them.  Again, football weekend and LSU has an afternoon away game so I probably won’t be around much until later.

So there you go Widdershins. Open thread of course and:

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.

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.

 

Good Weekend Widdershins!

And Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you too!  This is the weekend we celebrate all things Irish and isn’t that grand?  We all have a drop of the green in our blood for this weekend, but please no corned beef and cabbage for me.  Just never developed a taste for it.

Nevertheless, let’s take a look at some songs that celebrate the Emerald Isle.  There are tons of them out there so please share some of your favorites in the comments.  I believe I’ve found some that I really haven’t’ heard of before.

* * * *

The Irish Rover

* * * *

A Nation Once Again

* * * *

Arthur McBride 1977

 

* * * *

Rocky Road To Dublin

 

* * * *

Molly Malone

* * * *

Okay Widdershins, I’m making my list brief so that y’all can add lots of music videos in the comments below.

Open thread of course.

Hi gang! How’s your holiday starting out? Hope it’s festive. We’re having our Christmas dinner today instead of Tuesday, so I may not be around much. Everyone finally decided to only buy for the smallest kids this year. It was getting really, really over the top. The only problem with that is there are so few presents under the tree, it looks bare! Maybe I’ll wrap some boxes and put ‘fake’ gifts under there. It will be fine when everyone starts piling in and adds their gifts.

So, let’s do a holiday music thread. Here’s a start:

Elvis and Martina McBride – Blue Christmas

Kelly Clarkson – Please Come Home For Christmas

Rod Stewart – Let It Snow

Kenny G – Have Yourself A Very Merry Christmas

Jose Feliciano (and cool kids) – Feliz Navidad

Okay y’all, don’t make me post ‘Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer’ because I will if I have to… Have a wonderful holiday!

Open thread.

Good Sunday and weekend Widdershins!

Fredster here today for our GAgal; who needed to give her creative muse a rest.  She may need a while to let the muse have a break and that’s understandable. I thank her again for coming to my rescue so turnabout is fair, no?

So despite tRump’s success in getting Kavanaugh on the bench at the Supremes, it may cost him more than he or the Repub congress critters realize.  He and they have fired up not only women but other Democratic-friendly groups also and right.before.the.midterms.  From watching Maddow’s show this past week, early voting number have been staggering, in Georgia as well as other states.  Dare we have hope?  Perhaps even high hopes of capturing the House and maybe the Senate?  So with that in mind, let’s take a look at some songs about hopes.

* * * *

High Hopes (Sinatra version)

High Hopes – Pink Floyd

Dixie Chicks – I Hope

Mandy More – Only Hope

Phil Wickham – Living Hope

Ben Lee – We’re All In This Together

* * * *

So there’s a nice selection of songs and Fredster is going go rant online some more at various sports sites.  He was happy that LSU beat Moo U (Mississippi State) but is furious that the Tigers’ best defensive player got ejected in the second of the game for targeting the Moo U quarterback. Since the player, Devin White, was ejected in the second half of this game he will not be eligible to play for the first half of LSU’s next game, which happens to be Alabama.  The call on the field was reviewed at SEC conference headquarters and was upheld.  And where, you might ask is SEC conference headquarters?  Why in Birmingham Alabama.  As the Church Lady would say, “How conveeenient!”.  

Open thread of course.
