Damn it, now I have to go watch some Bill Burr standup.  Thanks.

It's good stuff. I worry the guy, like Robin Williams, has secret depression that he uses comedy to cope with. His sets just have enough darkness to hint at that. 

 

ah, the absurdity of the human condition. He's got some stuff on Spotify too.

I respect him and understand why people like him but I could never get into his music.  I've heard that Nebraska is an amazing album and I can never get more than 3 minutes into it.  

 

Except this one, it's got a pretty good beat.  But I think I like the cute Courtney Cox cameo at the end the most.

I like Bruce's music, but not a crazy fan. He's in that space like Bob Dylan for me—great artist, lyricist but not necessarily my favorite. 

Dylan though I've learned to respect, because artists cover his music and I love it. Bruce and Dylan, if you strip out the music, it's like poetry. I "love it" when people sing Born in the USA's refrain like the song is a patriotic song.

Great lyricist? Here are the full lyrics to Born In the USA (I pulled this from the official Bruce Springsteen website)

 

Boooooooooooorn in the USA!!

BOOOOOOOOOOOORN IN THE USA-A!!!!

Boooooooooooorn in the USA!!

I was born, born, born in the USA-A!

....

...

...

...

Boooooooooooorn in the USA!!

BOOOOOOOOOOOORN IN THE USA-A!!!!

Boooooooooooorn in the USA!!

(inaudible) in the USA-A!

 

 

That's it. That's the whole song.

Born down in a dead man's town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
End up like a dog that's been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering up

Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land
To go and kill the yellow man

I had a brother at Khe Sahn
Fighting off the Viet Cong
They're still there, he's all gone

He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now
Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I'm ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go

Saw Weezer and The Pixies last night in concert.

 

Weezer still puts on a fun entertaining show and their covers mixed in are hilarious (and usually as good as the original).

 

Kim Deal still rocks the bass and Frank Black (or whatever he calls himself now) are such a throwback 90s sound...

Of course less than 24 hours after I set up my basketball hoop I get a email from a prospective tenant that he'll take the warehouse space. 😐

 

Looks like there'll be no midnight basketball tournament this year. 😔

You didn't write that, because you're a no talent ass clown, Michael Bolton.

I saw Bruce and the E Streeters a long time ago at Georgetown's McDonough Arena when they were first starting out. Great show! One song they did was Fever, the old song by Peggy Lee. Just fantastic.

 

Edited to add: Weasel on WHFS had a copy of Fever live from that concert and would play it during his show. I recorded it but have since lost the tape.

Starting to make my travel plans to NoVa. I'm looking at driving up on Easter (to avoid the church pressure) and coming back either Friday or Saturday. 

Can't wait! 

 

Be forewarned, traffic will be heavy as many people will be returning home from Spring Break.  We will.  It is always heavy coming back on Easter.

Disney’s Aladdin Is a Fake

 

The original, uncensored story is much steamier—at times, downright pornographic.
 

With roots predominantly in Iran and India, The Thousand and One Nights—derived from the Middle Persian text Hezar Afsan (A Thousand Tales)—is a compendium of stories from various cultures in the Middle East and the surrounding region. The stories, narrated nightly by the Persian noblewoman Scheherazade to King Shahryar to delay her impending death, are humorous, replete with danger and derring-do. In many cases, they are deliciously erotic. Considering the volume’s frame story, in which the king and his brother Shahzaman are cuckolded, the bawdiness is to be expected. Alas, ever since the introduction of Nights to European audiences in the early 18th century by Antoine Galland, it has been censored and bowdlerized, earning its reputation in some quarters as little more than a collection of children’s stories.

Quote

She took him and, lying down on her back, let down her petticoat trousers, and in an instant that which his father had left him rose up in rebellion against him and he said, “Go to it, O Shaykh Zachary of shaggery, O father of veins!” And putting both hands to her flanks, he set the sugar-stick to the mouth of the cleft and thrust on … and … he plied the box within its cover till he came to the end of it.
