Midterms: The Cake’s Been Baked for Over a Week


Sometime between Kavanaugh and The Caravan, the cake was popped into the oven. The nature of the cake itself may not be known until after, maybe well after, tomorrow.  The only real question is whether or not America’s left her cake out in the rain.

Again.

Alert the Authorities!

    Until that Fine Day, stock up on ammo, get plenty of range time, and brush after every meal. Take care of your teeth, too.

    Now I’m wondering how that cake would have held up to McArthur parkouring on it in the rain. He ain’t my brother, but he sure is heavy.

    Without any doubt whatsoever, THE most monumentally-st00pid, utterly-nonsensical, completely-pointless and esoterically-incomprehensible piece of quasi-rock ‘n’ roll garbage spawned from the extensively, intensely drugs- and alcohol-addledpated maunderings of thoroughly-obscure and eminently-ignorable “musicians” EVER!!!…

    This “opus” even out-stoopided the whole “Rick-Rolled” bulls**t…Not even “worthy” of “ear-worm” status – quite mercifully!

    I hope the cake tastes good. Went to vote first thing this morning; busier than 2016.

    Donna Summer had a great voice.

    The story of how Richard Harris came to record it is quite a tale. Apparently he met Jimmy Webb at a party where Webb was playing piano for cash. They got to talking, Harris said he might like to record someday, and got Webb’s contact information. A few weeks later Harris calls, and tells Webb to get on the next plane for London with his music. Webb demurs, saying he’s got studio work booked, but Harris won’t accept that, and Webb finds himself on the plane.

    Webb winds up playing his entire sachel of songs for Harris over a few days. Harris listens to all of them. On the third day, Webb is down to one final song. No one else has ever liked it. He plays it for Harris. At the end, Harris leans over and says, “I’ll have that one, Jimmy Webb.”

    There followed an oddessy of finding a producer, and a journey all over the country to find just the right recording studio. Much drinking happened. Webb figured out later that Harris had remembered how hard Webb was working, and this was Harris’ way of forcing Webb to have a vacation.

    “I’ll be thinking of you, and wondering why?” I was in love once, with a girl who didn’t love me back — but we “could still be friends”.
    Now happily married (24years!), and I don’t wonder why so much.

    But there certainly was a time when I did.
    (I had to listen to the original again, maybe 30 years since I’ve heard it; never before in Slovakia…)

    It’s certainly NOT stooopid, it’s art. If it evokes emotion, as it did some for me for some time, it’s ok to good.

    I was a bit sorry about the mid term loss of the House; I’m so very very sorry for your losses in Paradise. On the other hand, it’s great you and your loved ones survived.
