It’s some sort of “gratitude” day so here’s a hand for Warren Zevon.

Okay it’s the day for giving thanks. Hmm, lots of people in America have been doing their best to get home for a gobble gobble dinner of some sort. And the transportation industry loves them for riding all the planes, trains and automobiles.  Hmm. Why the big push to get somewhere in order to get stuffed? Just a quick glance at Wikipedia’s entry for Thanksgiving can raise a lot of questions about what’s going in many modern minds regarding this pig-out day. Yeah, it doesn’t have much to do with Pilgrims and Indians unless the Earth’s Harvest route is taken. Here it’s the precursor to a big fat mindless day of shopping when many businesses hope to finally push their investments into the “black”–as in profit margin column. No big surprise it is it in our contemporary world where MONEY is the big kahuna.  Now celebrating the bounty of all Earth offers for food makes sense to me.  The rest does not.  Frankly many Americans eat so well year round that obesity is a major health issue. But there are many people who go hungry in America. Why? The inequities in our economic system and our values provide some answers.

Thanks for all the music.

Darkside time.

Now for something entirely different–the delightful, and unfortunately very late (as in dearly departed)– Warren Zevon:

Which dead musician do you give thanks for making music?

    Thanks for posting the Zevon videos…it’s been a while since I’ve heard his music.

      Hello Al. Zevon was someone I wish I’d seen perform live. I remember catching him several times on the David Letterman show. Something about some of his more “unique” songs — and his voice– stand the test of time and changing “styles” quite well. Perhaps it’s got to do with the presentation of the darker sides of human life.

    Billy Bob’s statement – “One of those people God only made one of” is the finest epitaph I’ve heard in some time.
