John Prine. “Bruised Orange”


(lyrics)
My heart's in the ice house come hill or come valley
Like a long ago Sunday when I walked through the alley
On a cold winter's morning to a church house
Just to shovel some snow.

I heard sirens on the train track howl naked gettin' nuder,
An altar boy's been hit by a local commuter
Just from walking with his back turned
To the train that was coming so slow.

You can gaze out the window get mad and get madder,
Throw your hands in the air, say "; What does it matter?";
But it don't do no good to get angry,
So help me I know

For a heart stained in anger grows weak and grows bitter.
You become your own prisoner as you watch yourself sit there
Wrapped up in a trap of your very own
Chain of sorrow.

I been brought down to zero, pulled out and put back there.
I sat on a park bench, kissed the girl with the black hair
And my head shouted down to my heart
"; You better look out below!"

Hey, it ain't such a long drop don't stammer don't stutter
From the diamonds in the sidewalk to the dirt in the gutter
And you carry those bruises to remind you wherever you go.




Tycho. “Outer Sunset”




Bonobo. “Black Sands”




Earth, Wind & Fire. “Fantasy”




(lyrics)
Every man has a place, in his heart there's a space,
And the world can't erase his fantasies
Take a ride in the sky, on our ship fantasii
All your dreams will come true, right away

And we will live together, until the twelfth of never
Our voices will ring forever, as one

Every thought is a dream, rushing by in a stream,
Bringing life to the kingdom of doing
Take a ride in the sky, on our ship fantasii
All your dreams will come true, miles away

Our voices will ring together until the twelfth of never,
We all, will live love forever, as one

Come see victory, in the land called fantasy
Loving life, a new decree,
Bring your mind to everlasting liberty

Our minds will explore together, old worlds, we conquer, forever
We then, will expand love together, as one

Come to see, victory in a land called fantasy,
Loving life, for you and me, to behold, to your soul is ecstasy
You will find, other kind, that has been in search for you,
Many lives has brought you to
Recognize it's your life, now in review

And as you stay for the play, fantasy, has in store for you,
A glowing light will see you through
It's your day, shining day, all your dreams come true

As you glide, in your stride with the wind, as you fly away
Give a smile, from your lips, and say
I am free, yes I'm free, now I'm on my way

We Democrats will fix THAT later.

"Administration officials also will not say what supplies are going to what states."


Why BD says states should look out for their own supplies, and yet confiscates orders to places within those states is a shady use of law.

Which is one reason BD has surrounded himself from accountability from Congress with an iron curtain of 7 inspector generals.

He also said in his April 7 presser that he can't tell governors what to do, which is why he hesitates to proclaim a national stay-at-home order.

So that's why MA's governor, Charlie Baker, can deliver his supplies, using his state police, to another governor, Andrew Cuomo, and his state police deliver them without confiscations.

And it's why CA's Newsom can have orders of millions of masks and other supplies come to CA every month without confiscation. You don't go on the Rachel Maddow Show and call your state a nation state for no reason. California, in global terms, IS a nation state.

Other governors have traded directly with other countries: Cuomo and Newsom with China, Ryan of Illinois with Cuba and northeastern governors with Venezuela.

Bloody Donnie's FEMA task force has no legal jurisdiction over governors and THEIR supply orders, while local hospitals and medical networks CAN have their shipments confiscated by FEMA.

So what we are seeing is Democratic governors taking over the direct delivery of supplies THEY own to other Democratic governors. Because, while BD doesn't want to be transparent about where the "national stockpile" is going, it's now clear to the rest of us that his red state loyalist governors get preferential supply delivery treatment during this pandemic. All Republicans are secretly proud of his so-called power.

Democratic governors -- 'cause they have state police power, lawyers, guns, and money, too, you know -- are cockblocking BD's secret, preferential treatment of COVID-19 supply distribution.

I call them good old American Patriots. Democratic governors are shining lights of power for The People in a dark time.

A time of pandemic, when this feckless, fakeass, fatass fuck of a president and his Repub henchmen only care about the survival of SOME Americans. HIS voters.

That red states have NOT issued stay-at-home orders was to let the pandemic kill off minorities, with BD saying, " I can't stop them," shrugging the national order off during in his presser yesterday.

All Democrats in Congress have to do is get the record of FEMA confiscations,
find out where those supplies were re-sold -- i.e., follow the money, because they ARE being resold -- and they have a RICO case.

"Yet there is little indication that federal officials are controlling the market."


We'll fix THAT later, motherfuckers.

Gov Andrew Cuomo's Update Apr 7 2020



America's real presidential daily report and presser; and in effect, the actual president.


This is the governor who daily gives multi information on numbers,
updates federal responses,
what other states need to look out for,
explanations,
perspectives on how to look at our situation, and
most of all,
thanks.

His is the model that gives us standards for judging our own state governments.

America's hopeful realist says "It's hard. I get it. It's not about me. What I do will affect other people."

Emphasis on the Realist part.

Exuma. “Dambala”




Shawn Mendes. “Youth”


Here I am, stuck on this couch
Scrolling through my notes
Heart was broken, still not growing, nah
Waking up to headlines
Filled with devastation again
My heart is broken
But I keep going

Pain, but I won't let it turn into hate
No, I won't let it change me
Never losing sight of the one I keep inside
Now, I know it
Yeah, I know it

You can't take my youth away
This soul of mine will never break
As long as I wake up today
You can't take my youth away

You can't take my youth away
This soul of mine will never break
As long as I wake up today
You can't take my youth away
You can't take my youth away

It's hard to sleep at night
Knowing what's outside
Feeling hopeless
I need focus

You hit me with words I never heard
Come out your mouth
To be honest
I don't want it, no
Pain, but I won't let it turn into hate
No, I won't let it change me

You can't take my youth away
This soul of mine will never break
As long as I wake up today
You can't take my youth away

You can't take my youth away
This soul of mine will never break
As long as I wake up today
You can't take my youth away
You can't take my youth away
You can't take my youth away

Pain, but I won't let it turn into hate
No, I won't let it change me
Pain, but I won't let it turn into hate
No, I won't let it change me

You can't take my youth away
This soul of mine will never break
As long as I wake up today
You can't take my youth away (youth away)

You can't take my youth away
This soul of mine will never break
As long as I wake up today
You can't take my youth away

You can't take my youth away
This soul of mine will never break
As long as I wake up today
You can't take my youth away

You can't take my youth away
This soul of mine will never break
As long as I wake up today
You can't take my youth away
You can't take my youth away

Trombone Shorty. “Buckjump”



Lil Wayne. “We’re Takin’ Over”


(lyrics)
Hello. it's me, the rapper eater
Feed me, feed me, feed me, (no homo)

One time for me, one time for the DJ
He be Khaled, I be Li'l Weezy
Baby, if you ask me, if you're nasty
Creative gifted bastard, spit sporadic
I'm so diplomatic democratic
Touch it, bring it, push it systematic

Damn right, I kissed my daddy
I think they pissed at how rich my daddy is
And I'm his kid, I stunt with my daddy
Call Mrs. Lee, she's with my daddy
So diss me and don't diss my daddy

'Cause who was there when no one wasn't?
Just my daddy
Who was there when I needed money?
Just my daddy

So who'll be there when I see the money?
Just my daddy
Who said that I be the one?
Just my daddy
Hello hip hop, I'm home, it's your daddy

When I say D's, I don't mean the caddy
I mean 'Deez nuts' Akon's and Khaled's
Rick Ross, TIP, Stunna and Fat Joe
And I can't, can't, can't forget Brisco
And yeah, I done squashed the bullshit, it's rizo

It's a bakery here, just trying to get dough
Shout to my dreads, my Haitians and Chico's
You're lookin' for me hoe?
I'm in the 30-5, I'm the best rapper alive

Homeboy got a mind that a map wouldn't find
Homeboy got a 9, that a cop wouldn't find
I could get to it even if I was blind
Scary movie be screaming when I rhyme

I'ma king, you can ask Stephen if I'm lying
I'ma prince too, demanding like my mom
Too bold, too cold like wet salam, me, me it's all about me
If a girl gotta voice then she talking about me

Me, he say, she say, I say me
Will be in the M-I-A me wth me and T and Big Ronnie
And the homie street probably somewhere on the beach
And Tez and E probably somewhere in the jeep

And Marl in the Phantom with Mr. G
And me, me, it's all about me
Play with me and it's all out beef
Beef, yes, chest, feet, tag, bag, blood, sheets

Yikes, yeeks, great Scott
Storch, can I borrow your yacht?
Watch me and my clique go all out
Like the ball in the stands, we balls out

Boy, I don't know what y'all 'bout
But I just spit like a dog mouth
Pink ice just looking like a hog mouth
Vrrrmmm, I had to bring the hog out

Light them trees bring the log out
Everyday Christmas, I'm egged nogged out
And hip hop is my new bought house
My flow just grew legs and walked out bye...

After Four More Phone Masts Attacked, YouTube Promises To Remove Some 5G Conspiracy Videos

The Guardian reports that YouTube "will reduce the amount of content spreading conspiracy theories about links between 5G technology and coronavirus that it recommends to users, it has said, as four more attacks were recorded on phone masts within 24 hours."

The online video company will actively remove videos that breach its policies, it said.

But content that is simply conspiratorial about 5G mobile communications networks, without mentioning coronavirus, is still allowed on the site.

YouTube said those videos may be considered "borderline content" and subjected to suppression, including loss of advertising revenue and being removed from search results on the platform.

"We also have clear policies that prohibit videos promoting medically unsubstantiated methods to prevent the coronavirus in place of seeking medical treatment, and we quickly remove videos violating these policies when flagged to us," a YouTube spokesperson said.

YouTube says that since early February, it has manually reviewed and removed thousands of videos that spread dangerous or misleading coronavirus information.

America's Music. Questlove's Touching Four-Hour Tribute Set To Bill Withers

I learned a lot from this set. Most of it's inexplicable, something about the mystery of making one's memories from a humble past, from its simplest moments, into art.

Mixed with the gumbo of instruments, "covers" and caribbean rhythms, America's music has changed the world.


Aahahahaha moments: "I was like maybe 11 or 12 before I realized that "Let It Be" was not a Bill Withers song ...E minor... that will be the evil knievel jump... and will take a nine hour explanation..."

If you feel the great Bill Withers hasn't gotten enough love these days, this is one exception.

"The most you can ever do is the best you can."
Bill Withers
