lcd soundsystem - i can change (studio - 2010) - one of my all-time fave tunes

Yeah, I know it's totally reminiscent of Obsession by Eurythmics but I adore that song, too, so ...

Anyways, turn it the hell up and dance naked!

Tell me a line
Make it easy for me
Open your arms
Dance with me until I feel all right

It's good in the dark
Good in the dark
But into the lover's light
Here comes another fight

So ring the alarm
Ring the alarm
Bar me and hold me and cling to my arm
Here it comes
Here it comes

And what you're asking me now
Disastrous now
Hoping and hoping and hoping the feeling goes away

Never change, never change, never change, never change
Never change, never change, never change
This is why I fell in love
Never change, never change, never change, never change
Never change, never change, never change
That's just who I fell in love ... with

Oh this is the time
The very best time
So give me a line
And take me home
Take me over

But dashing the hopes
Dashing the hopes
And smashing the pride
The morning's got you on the ropes, oh

And love is a murderer
Love is a murderer
But if she calls you tonight
Everything is all right
Yeah, we know

And love is a curse
Shoved in a hearse
Love is an open book to a verse
Of your bad poetry
And this is coming from me

But I can change, I can change, I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change, I can change
If it helps you fall in love

Turn on the light
Make it easy for me
Fill the divide
Fumble in the kitchen 'til it's right
What an awful sight

But there's love in your eyes
Love in your eyes
Love in your eyes
But maybe that's just what your lover finds
all night

And I can change, I can change, I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change, I can change
If it helps you fall in love


vampire weekend - harmony hall (studio - 2019) - repost, just because it's awesome

The long-awaited new record, Father of the Bride, does not disappoint. I mean, it's not Modern Vampires of the City great, but very little is.

If this don't sum it up right here, I dunno what does ...

anybody with a worried mind
could never forgive the sight
of wicked snakes inside a place
you thought was dignified
i don't wanna live like this
but i don't wanna die




An instant fave from today's new record ... a straight-up Paul Simon blast ...




Another bit of genius:

vampire weekend - step (studio-2013) in honor of today's release of their new album ...

after 6 long years of waiting ... first, one of the stunners from their previous album Modern Vampires of the City, which landed at #1 on more end-of-year critic's polls than I've ever seen a record do ... this 2013 song was just stupid good.

muse - madness (live - 2015 - portugal) - been a while since I been to a show with this much love

This is just freaking KILLER in every way ... I hope you have a sub, or at least good headphones ... and turn it the HELL UP!!!



Or if you prefer a version where the crowd is quiet and the sound-quality better, this version is also killer ...



(yeah, I know Muse has some way better tunes ... but everyone knows this one, so ...)

Stampeders - Sweet City Woman (studio - 1971) - Claude Raines on the Banjo lol ...

england dan and john ford coley - what's forever for (studio-1980-ish?) when did you last hear THIS?

Whoever made this YT vid even busted out his vinyl to do it ... props on that. Probably can't even buy the CD anymore. But I had this tape at like 13 yo. I dug it ... These dudes had some good tracks back in the day.



Bonus Track:



Bonus Track 2, their biggest hit ... c'mon, you know you love this song. It's hard to get more 1970's
Radio than this one ... a stone classic ...

the velvet underground - rock and roll (studio-1970) ... and it was alright!

rancid - time bomb (studio-1995) - I mean sh*t, if we're doing some Cali Punk tonight ...

The East Bays OWN ... one of the greatest songs of all time to crank up and bounce around to ... okay it's maybe ska-punk, but still ... the punk attitude is all there!



Bonus Track ... Radio (1994) ... this bassline kicks so much ass ... so turn it up, f***ing LOUD!!!

One of my favorite things to do ... tour neighborhoods of my youth with Google Earth!

Anybody else a fan?

I think it's so friggin' cool, being able to drop into your old streets in your old hood, and just cruise around like you're there?!? See how things have changed, and how they're still the same? It's badass.

Touring places like Repulse Bay, Hong Kong, or Orinda, CA, or Quincy, CA ... places I grew up ... I just love it. Of course, I physically visit Orinda regularly cause I'm in the Bay Area frequently, but when I get homesick I can just drop on in with Google Earth anytime. I can cruise right by my folks house in Walnut Creek if I want to.

Seriously it's one of the coolest inventions EVAH!

Edit: It's also really cool for checking out the area in places you might stay on holiday, the neighborhood around an AirBnB you might rent, or a Hotel you're thinking of staying, etc.

I prefer the more powerful desktop app (still free), myself, but it works pretty good right in Chrome as well.

Mueller effectively says 'I was never going to accuse POTUS of Criminal Conspiracy in this report'

See the details spelled out in KPete's post here:

https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=12023618

In a bout of somewhat circular reasoning, he explains why not, which basically amounts to this:

Because of the fact that a Sitting POTUS cannot be indicted, per DoJ Prosecutorial guidelines, while DoJ Fairness guidelines direct that persons who WON'T be indicted for a given crime should not be accused by DoJ of having committing that given crime ... there was NEVER actually ANY potential for the Mueller Report to claim outright ... that POTUS was involved in a criminal conspiracy with Russians.

It was logically impossible for him to do so, based on DoJ guidelines.

And if you accept Barr's further interpretation (which is BULLSHIT) that a person can essentially never 'obstruct justice' *unless* there's an underlying offense for which they ARE prosecuted, clearly it would be impossible for a POTUS to ever obstruct justice, either, since he's above the law to begin with in terms of being prosecuted.
