the best beatles ripoff song of the grunge-era ... well, not made by matthew sweet :)

you might convince me there's AS GOOD a heavy metal song as this one ... but not a better one!

This song kicks ass, top-to-bottom, every player in the band at the top of their game, just freaking rocking it.

I forget about how great it is til I put it on every 5 or so years, since 1982 when I bought the album (and saw them on this tour). But it always gets me pumped.

WARNING: Not a PETA-friendly video.

Kristen Lowery, 40, Escalon, California, Anti-vaxxer "ex-vaxxer", died of COVID.

Sorry if already posted but I hadn't seen it.

Escalon is pretty close to where my Aunt is about to die from pneumonia (non-COVID) because the hospital needs the equipment for the shit-bird anti-vax C19 patients in their hospital.

According to this social media post Kristen died from COVID Sept 15, 2021. She leaves behind four school-age children. She was definitely anti-vaxx.

Just when I thought I couldn't hate the COVIDIOTS any MORE, they're possibly killing my Aunt

My 80 y.o. Aunt (fully vaxxed, fully liberal, and totally cool), my mom's only sibling, and the only person from the older generation I have left apart from my mom has been in the hospital for 7 weeks in Sonora, CA, after a simple surgery gone wrong (per Mom's opinion) has cascaded into a series of problems, infections, and follow up surgeries.

This is the convo we just had ... note that my mom was a nurse and hospital administrator for nearly 50 years, so she knows of whence she speaks. Ben and Melissa are her kids, my only first cousins. And Don is our family lawyer.

BTW, nobody has been able to visit her in person since week 1, BECAUSE COVIDIOTS ... But they were finally just allowed in to visit, then hit up with the 'comfort care' spiel.


Mom:
Aunt Lee is probably not going to make it. She now has pneumonia and they are trying to get us to put her on just comfort care. We haven't given up so far but she is pretty critical (for the umpteenth time)
I did get to see her yesterday and Ben and Melissa are with her today. Then they are trying to cancel our visitation unless we put her on comfort care.

Me:
Damn it! Pneumonia? Is she C19 positive?
Extorting you to resolve to let her pass away if you want to be able to visit sounds pretty shitty.

Mom:
She tested negative a couple of days ago. We are writing a letter from Don

Me:
Well, this sucks 🙁
Most hospitals are probably neck deep in pneumonia (and similar) too right now. Guessing the demand on treatment equipment is at a premium.

Mom:
Yes, and she's an old lady so they don't give a damn.
They are neck deep in Covid patients because the people of Sonora deny Covid and do nothing to stop it.

Me:
Do you have a feeling they're pushing the comfort care because they need the equipment for others?

Mom:
yes

Me:
just when I thought I couldn't hate the Covidiots any more.

Mom:
We plan to take her home to die if it comes to comfort care but it takes them 24 hours to arrange it.

Norm Macdonald, Comedian and 'Saturday Night Live' Star, Dies at 61

I hadn't seen posted, so ...


I liked Norm, I like the deadpan style. He was often in nearby Scottsdale, AZ partying.



https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/norm-macdonald-dead-dies-snl-1235064570/

Norm Macdonald, the deadpan comedian, actor, writer and “Saturday Night Live” star, has died after a battle with cancer, Variety has confirmed. He was 61.

Macdonald privately battled the disease for almost a decade. “Norm was an original! He defined American humor with honesty and blunt force,” Jeff Danis, president of DPN Talent and one of Macdonald’s reps, told Variety in a statement.

So, which is going to be the prevailing theory, conspiracy or otherwise?

steve earle - way down in the hole (studio-2007) an appropriate tune for the day

Theme song on The Wire for a season or two (RIP MKW), and Steve Earle has always been a big friend of the working man ... though this is actually a Tom Waits cover.
