Can we not be distracted by this bullshit about birthright citizenship ... it's a DESPERATE

attempt to say something so outrageous that the horrific tragedy in Pittsburgh will get swept from the news-cycle.

TRUMP ALWAYS PULLS THIS SHIT when the news is looking bad for him, says he's gonna do something outrageous (which is OBVIOUSLY never going to happen, typically, as here) in an attempt to control the news cycle.

How about we f***ing IGNORE his tricks, for once?

He can't do this, neither can Graham.

Period.

Colin Meloy (The Decemberists) - A June Hymn, to Welcome In The Day ...

Beautiful lyrics ... great performance ... awesome song ...

June Hymn
Here's a hymn to welcome in the day
Heralding a summer's early sway
And all the bulbs all coming in
To begin
The thrushes bleating battle with the wrens
Disrupts my reverie again

Pegging clothing on the line
Training jasmine how to vine
Up the arbor to your door
And more
You're standing on the landing with the war
You shouldered all the night before

And once upon it
A yellow bonnet
Garland on the lawn
And you were waking
And day was breaking
A panoply of song
And summer comes to Springville Hill

A barony of ivy in the trees
Expanding out its empire by degrees
And all the branches burst a'bloom
In the boom
Heaven sent this cardinal maroon
To decorate our living room

And years from now
When this old life
Isn't ambling anymore
Will I bring myself to write?

I give my best to Springville Hill


Justin Townes Earle (with a certain, beloved guest guitarist) on Letterman - Harlem River Blues

This is a'great ... very rootsy ...

This particular guitarist plays on a bunch of songs on the actual record, which is overall EXCELLENT, as are the 2 that preceded it, his debut The Good Life, and sophomore effort Midnight at the Movies.

The lady on the Stand Up Bass friggin' kills it, too ... love her, no idea who she is, but she's awesome.

Jason Isbell (2017) - Live at the Ryman - Last Encore - American Girl

Nothing says Friday OR Saturday Night ... quite like this ... Jason & the Unit tear the roof off the sucker on this classic to close the Show ... TURN IT UP!!!

On Edit: Just realized that the time marker doesn't work on the vid ... so found a direct link ...

Jason Isbell (2017) - Live at the Ryman - Speed Trap Town

This entire concert is amazing ... basically just picking one fave performance from the show, but it's all worth watching. The version of Cover Me Up in this show is f***ing JAW-DROPPING, for example.

Anyways, I know the song's a bit on the sad side, but the performance (and sound) is so freaking good, it doesn't feel depressing (IMHO) ... just a profound song about letting go of a defective parent, and moving on with your life.

?t=4178

And if the time marker doesn't work, here's the same song at another performance from 2016, this one works for sure ...

Just watch ... no matter HOW MUCH EVIDENCE there is that MAGABomber is a dyed-in-the-wool MAGAT

The dipshit, knuckle-dragging, InfoWars-loving, Faux-watching CULTISTS ... will cling to the initial programming they received from their masters in the earliest moments of the news breaking: FALSE FLAG! ACTUALLY DEM TRYING TO MAKE TRUMP LOVERS LOOK BAD!

It will not matter if 50 people that've known this assclown his entire life, including his own Parents, publicly state that they KNOW, for a FACT, that he's been a right-wing whack-a-doodle all along ...

It will not matter if pictures in his High School Yearbook, wherein he's the 'President' of the 'Campus Republicans', 38 years ago, are unearthed.

It will not matter if pics AND videos of the guy obviously hating on the Clintons, Obama, and Dems ... throughout his ENTIRE LIFE HISTORY ... are shown all over the 'media'.

The dipshit MAGAts will live in their pathetic, stick-boy fantasy land, insisting TO THE FUCKING END ... that the WHOLE THING is just a giant, made-up conspiracy by the 'Evil Left' and the dreaded, Trump-hating 'FBI' ... there will NEVER, EVER, EVER be enough evidence for a large % of these people ... to let go of their programming, and admit that 'Yes, a Trump Lover committed these crimes'.

They're literally biologically incapable of dealing with facts and reality ... if it does not comport with their imaginations, hatreds, and biases.

They'll deny it even if the man HIMSELF ADMITS he absolutely 'did it' ... because he loves Trump and hates Democrats. THAT will be 'ZOMG ... OBVIOUSLY it's cause Soros paid him million$!!!11!!' or "ZOMG, he's brainwashed by the CIA!!1!!"

They're f***ing LOST.

The Flaming Lips - Fight Test

The opening salvo from their classic record "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" ... and as catchy a ditty as you're ever likely to hear.

And yes, if you're wondering, Cat Stevens is indeed cited as a co-writer, and receives royalties, such as they are ... pretty sure many of you will know why when you listen to the track ...

Regardless of the obvious resemblance, it's still a great twist on Cat's classic tune ...

Is It Gettin' Heavy? Well I Thought it was Already as Heavy ... As Can Be ...

My favorite song, from one of my all-time favorite albums 'The Soft Bulletin' by The Flaming Lips. Which I consider the Lo-Fi, 1990's version of Dark Side of the Moon ... if you've never gotten baked and listened to this whole album on headphones, from top to bottom ... you've entirely missed out.

The Soft Bulletin is an epic sonic journey ... you'll like it the first time or two, but once the hooks sink in ... the third time through or so ... you really realize what a truly amazing work it is, and it's all done 100% analog, no Pro-Tools or any bullshit.

You kinda have to get used to Wayne's croaking vocals a bit ... lol ... but I'm tellin' ya, the reward is great.

Interesting subtext to this video ... the 'dad' on the bench is band member Steven Drozd, the multi-instrumentalist who basically wrote the music on the album (and plays particularly kick-ass drums throughout) ... and did so while he was highly strung out on the dope (talking the William S. Burroughs kinda dope, not the Tommy Chong kind).

So, my theory is ... he's dopesick on the bench there ... and when you start with that understanding, this vid takes on a whole new meaning ... you understand the reason for the blood and fire imagery, etc ... it's really pretty deep is the truth.

If Pink Floyd was formed in the 90's ... I give you the band 'Girls' ...

And their unfortunately named song 'Vomit' ... which is actually KILLER (and the title is completely random) ... stick with it, cause it gets GREAT.

And you gotta love the Mustang cruising San Francisco video ... I know lots of spots that show up in this ...

And crank it the hell UP!!!
