  1. Hi Folks, sorry for the absence but it has been a long a difficult week in RL land – all to do with relocating our son and his family from Melbourne to Canberra. Still another 3 weeks to run but the worst of it is over. The only thing I can take out of this is the reflection of what I must have been like at that age to my own parents. Lord help me but they must have put up with an awful lot of grief dealing with my moves. Seeing it all at the other end is an eye opening experience.

    Anyways, this is my way of saying that things will be erratic for the next 3 weeks until all is sorted and then I am off to the coast to veg out with her indoors.

  2. Led Zeppelin’s tune “Whole Lotta Love” was big in December of 1969. I was in the US Army at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, on bivouac maneuvers on a horrible rainy cold night in a leaky cold pup tent. Transistor radios were not permitted on this training exercise, so naturally i sneaked one into my tent. I was trying to sleep a little bit with the radio pressed against my ear with the lowest volume setting on, not low enough, as the sergeant walked by and detected noise—Led Zep’s “Whole Lotta Love”— and ripped my tent apart , ordered me out into the mud where I had to hear him say “Give me one hundred!” , and I had to do 100 push-ups in the mud and the cold. I then was allowed to set my tent back up and crawl in. Later that night , just as I dozed off in the freezing night, a blood-curdling scream!— an armadillo had visited a brother in his tent! That dude went crazy, and I would have too—who knew how to handle an armadillo inside a pup tent? Finally the dude settled down , just as the sun came up deep behind the rain clouds. Led Zeppelin and the armadillo…what a night. Later, to my surprise, the sergeant gave me my radio back. What a night, indeed.

  3. Dex, Robert Plant his own self would luv that story I gotta believe. “Who knew how to handle an armadillo inside a pup tent?” Now that’s an ultimate life question my friend, and there aren’t many of those worth asking. Who knew indeed!

  4. Seems to me we need some Samuel Clemens right about now:

    “I have no special regard for Satan; but I can at least claim that I have no prejudice against him. It may even be that I lean a little his way, on account of his not having a fair show. All religions issue bibles against him, and say the most injurious things about him, but we never hear his side. We have none but evidence for the prosecution and yet we have rendered the verdict. To my mind, this is irregular. It is un-English. It is un-American; it is French. Without this precedent Dreyfus could not have been condemned. As soon as I can get at the facts I will undertake his rehabilitation myself if I can find an unpolitic publisher. It is a thing we ought to be willing to do for anyone who is under a cloud. We may not pay him reverence, for that would be indiscreet, but we can at least respect his talents. A person who has for untold centuries maintained the imposing position of spiritual head of four-fifths of the human race, and political head of the whole of it, must be granted the possession of executive abilities of the loftiest order. In his large presence the other popes and politicians shrink to midgets for the microscope. I would like to see him. I would rather see him and shake him by the tail than any member of the European concert.” — Mark Twain, a Biography

  5. every one of us at one time or another has peddled a little bullshit around here and most times get called on it by someone.

    jack, well said. this is the same sentiment i tried unsuccessfully to express to flatus the other day. however i disagree on that “most times” calling out part, imo most times most of us simply ignore, change the subject and move on. am grateful tho’ to those who do expose the shitted bull and try to set the record straight so that we don’t have to step in it again.

  6. Craig, there are a whole lot of worse things I could imagine in my pup tent than an armadillo. They don’t look that frightening to me, certainly not as frightening as the name sounds. Tony, you’ve chased some dillos in your time, have you ever come across a vicious one? Do they ever turn on ya and snarl? I’d take an army of armadillos to just one possum.

  7. first time i heard “whole lotta love” was while on leave at a staten island “disco”. they had lights on the floor and ceiling and walls which lit up in time with the music. must have been ’69. it was an ear opener.

    that “heart” version of the stairway gave me chills when I saw it the other night, such a tremendous effort.

    But best [rock] band ever? nope. that distinction belongs to los beatles. they started out with simple hold your hand shit and yeah yeah yeah and then every subsequent album release was a step upward right up to the time of their artistic demise as a unit. (Counting george martin and billy preston as beatles, of course.)

    But also thanx and a tip o’ the hatlo hat to the Stax-Volt guys, Matt Guitar Murphy, Booker T., Duck Dunn, Steve Cropper, Blue Lou and all the rest.

  8. The hacker-activist group Anonymous says it hijacked the website of the U.S. Sentencing Commission to avenge the death of Aaron Swartz, an Internet activist who committed suicide.

    The website of the commission, an independent agency of the judicial branch, was taken over early Saturday and replaced with a message warning that when Swartz killed himself two weeks ago “a line was crossed.”

    The hackers say they’ve infiltrated several government computer systems and copied secret information that they now threaten to make public.

  9. Patd said

    however i disagree on that “most times” calling out part,

    See my point is proved. And so mild and polite she is,too. };-)

    I think the most favorite phrase around here is some version of “yeah, but….”


  10. Jack…..”Yeah, but”…..possibly my all time favorite phrase. around here we call it a yebbut.

    an armadillo in your little puppy tent might not be such a drag in the daylight, but nosin’ around in the dark and you don’t know what it is?

  11. The culture war is probably over, but it would seem that there are a few states that haven’t received the memo. They want to go on fighting it gorilla style, as in considering the termination of a rape pregnancy to be ‘tampering with evidence’.

  12. sturgeone, yebbut, the Beatles vs. Led Zeppelin, bring it on. Zep never released a single, more coherent themes, better chemistry, each member a superior musician, killer hard rock. but yeah wouldn’t that be a hellacious battle of the bands. Think Jimmy Page would humiliate the competition.

  13. Can’t see it, chief….guitar mongers are a dime a dozen…..i’d also have to question “coherent themes” given mystery tour, sgt pepper’s, and abbey road….but then i didn’t give much listen to zep in depth. I’ll give them the killer hard rock, though.

  14. case in point: martin showed the young beatles a simple much used big band/jazz phrase:
    Fm Fmmaj7 Fm7 Fm6 Bbm/F

    paul used it in “Michelle”, John used the idea in “Norwegian Wood” and George eventually used it in a major key for “Something” which Frank Sinatra his own self called the most beautiful love song he’d ever heard.

    well, upon looking at some google seems as though paul added the middle eight (bridge) to the Norwegian wood…but i’m sure john used it somewhere too.

  15. John Boehner: Ending Abortion Is ‘One Of Our Most Fundamental Goals This Year’

    So much for jobs and the economy. πŸ˜•

  16. Zep is great by my #1 band is still the “Moody Blues.” I think their album “Days of Future Passed” is brilliant.

  17. the moodies were pretty cool as well…it’s just to me that none of them measured up to the 4 lads from liverpool and the songs they put out in a span of about 6 years. on the order of all hank sr’s output of songs in his brief 4 or 5 year recording career.

    Dylan belongs there also, but he wasn’t a band, and didn’t break up or die.

  18. ah you guys got me wanting to hear it one mo time..

  19. For those who would enjoy reading some of Bill Woerlee’s historical writings re Australia, he has a new one up about
    “The Battle of Broken Hill” . The first part are links to various photos and historical articles followed by a general post on the events. It then goes into a great deal of detail for those who want to keep reading.

  20. httpv://

    just a little taste of the early musicality.
    ( I like the way that lennon imitated roy orbison’s “stance”.)
    moosikans will be still studying mccartney’s bass playing many years from now, he’s a true wonderment, bassically.

  21. if you want a treat, go to some of the sites which isolate various tracks and listen to the sheer innovation and musicality of mccartney’s bassisms.

  22. Thanks for linking this awesome video, Craig. Now I want to see the remainder of this Kennedy Center performance. Heart will also be honored as 2013 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

  23. mad….i heard that when first aired and I’m tellin’ ya it gave me an old-time thrill…..

    would like to have heard something upon which mccartney collaborated with paul simon. that would have been some Stuff.

  24. I LOVE Led Zeppelin… thanks for the video, Craig… and have a great time in the third world country called Florida… :smile:

    And my other 2cents about the recent brush-up… this blog may be about American politics… and Craig is headquartered in D.C…. but… this blog is on the internet. The internet does not belong to the US… it belongs to the world. Therefore, IMO, anyone on the internet is at home.

  25. sturge, i’m with you on the basic beauty and enduring worth of the music that issued forth from the four laddies.

    this one isn’t one of that ethereal quality but it might be fun to play at craig and david’s wedding party.

  26. Arizona Republicans Propose Bill That Would Not Allow Atheists To Graduate High School

  27. Let us, then, be what we are, and speak what we think, and in all things keep ourselves loyal to the truth and the sacred professions of friendship.



  28. Loved Heart’s performance–that was SO powerful–and the Buddy Guy tribute was great too.

    Meanwhile back on the home front, I have joined a Facebook group called Old Farts and Jackasses. Some drunken “country” singer name of Blake Shelton has labeled anybody who prefers classic country to the crap coming out of Nashville now “old farts and jackasses”. Proud to be one, myself.

  29. Only in these past few years have I really studied the life of George Harrison. I was there at the start, from the very first mention of the Lads in the US press, and I was the kid who bought every album on its release day and was a complete, total Beatles nutcase, much worse than any of my friends in my little Indiana town. Within days I would have every lyric of every song memorized; I ran home dying to put those LPs on my turntable and crank the V. So, I accepted John as the brains, Paul as the cute showman, Ringo as the lovable mop-top drummer, and George as the strange combination of “Quiet Beatle” and also lead guitarist of the most famous band in the world.

    John and Paul made such impacts on the world that George commanded little attention, but as the years and decades slipped by, we came to know George as not quiet, but thoughtful and spiritual, and smart and caring…a great human being. Perhaps killed by a tobacco cigarette addiction, who knows for sure?…but a tragedy however it was that he had to go before attaining 60 years of age. The two dead rock and rollers and pop song artists I miss the most are George Harrison and Joe Strummer.

  30. The song I sing whenever I play a lottery ticket:

  31. Perpetual War For Perpetual Peace Gore Vidal, 2002

    Haldeman beat him to the concept by 28 years.

  32. Wow my first ever post from 30k feet, plane has Internet, but nothing much to say except sure is a durn shame Tom Harkin retiring. Luv that guy

  33. Flatus, Sturgeon – – pilot says we’re over SC. Keep those weapons hidden. Just overheard flight attendant say there are 80 children onboard. Sure sounds like it. Ah Orlando, comes with the turf

  34. I first met Tom Harkin in ’91 when the late Paul Wellstone was introducing him to people around Minnesota. Harkin was testing the waters, hoping to run for president against old george bush. I was deeply impressed by Harkin, as Paul had told me I would be.

    It is totally unfair to Iowegians that they should be stuck with the far older, chicken hawk, subsidy-farming red, and serial liar, chass grassley, and lose a hard-working, straight-talking, fearless USAF flyer, and friend of working people.

  35. Globalization

    Ireland says the burger meat with horse DNA came from Poland.

  36. John Boehner: Ending Abortion Is ‘One Of Our Most Fundamental Goals This Year’

    Great it will just make beating the crap out of the goopers that much easier since 70% of Americans think abortion should be legal and available. I hope they run some more of those guys who believe all the bilge they have been pumping out and aren’t afraid to say it out loud.

  37. Craig, my one-year-old granddaughter is simply crazy for Mickey & Minnie & Goofy, so I am sure she’ll be on a jet plane to Mousetown within a short time. 81 kids next time! :)

  38. “This is your Captain speaking. We are over South Carolina airspace now. Nobody breathe. Be vewy vewy quiet.”

    Edit in background sound of a good silent scene from “Run Silent, Run Deep”.

  39. KGC,

    If abortion was outlawed today, the wealthy would still have access to safe, medically sound abortion services. Though be it out of the country. Travel and money would be no impediment in getting the services they desire.
    Goes hand in hand with tax breaks for the rich and screw everyone else.
    Give republicans credit, at least they are consistent.

  40. Over South Carolina… Rigged for silent running… Sonar picks up… Crazy Ivan-‘Sanford’ taking another run…

  41. “Crazy Ivan-‘Sanford’ taking another run…”


    Maybe maybe he is ‘jogging’ the Appalachian Trail. πŸ˜‰

  42. Mark Sanford Campaign Slogan

    “Country first, Argentina uh, uh, well, let me get back to you on that”

  43. Jace… he is definitely on maneuvers again to clear his baffles… but… his torpedoes often misfire. :)

  44. Greatest Rock in roll band ever?

    No competition, The Stones

    Number one hit singles in three decades.
    eight consecutive number one album.

    The Sixties

  45. Mad,

    I don’t think that the family values thing is going to fly for Sanford this time around. Perhaps he could take up immigration reform, and more intimate ties with our neighbors to the South. πŸ˜‰

  46. Best american band, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band


  47. Jace

    Bob Wills was my mothers favorite band.
    She grew up in Southern Kansas and He toured all those little towns in Texas, OK and southern Kansas. She got to see him live at Arkansas City. or so she said.


  48. Jack,

    I did not even know who Bob Wills was until I heard all the later generation C&W singers talk about him.

    Pretty damn good country band!
    Texas swing! πŸ˜‰

  49. Best country music song ever or until I change my mind anyway. certainly the saddest.


  50. No really, This is the best country music ever made

    Flatt & Scruggs – Foggy Mountain Breakdown


  51. A little Blues

    Texas Flood – Stevie Ray Vaughan & Albert King


  52. New Rockabilly

    Pass That Bottle – The Devil’s Daughters AZ Rockabilly


  53. whskyjack,
    You have remarkable taste in music. Just want to thank you for posting John Hartford a couple years back. Very nice.

  54. I have been a Stones fan since 1964 I believe. In my little town lives a lady who is a total Stones freak. She drives a red Mustang with a giant tongue and lips logo on the hood. She goes to every Stones show within a five hour drive of here when they tour, and she flies to a couple shows every tour, too. I love all the music everyone posted, but we all know who Craig votes for every time…

  55. If you like understated humour, then I have found Trollied a wonderful way to relax. But in the humour lies a great deal of truth.


  56. One of the wonderful things about summer is the rich table of fruit. We have been enjoying a mixture of grapes from Mildura on the riverlands, cherries from the hills of Adelaide, nectarines from Casino and the most juiciest, delicious mangos from Cairns. And our tommyartoes all come from Mudgee. Thank you refrigeration and an incredible logistical train for making our lives just perfect.

    And all washed down with some Kambra Kardonay.


  57. surprising what one finds at the bbc. this article on dung beetles navigating via the milky way for instance. odd how this also describes the actions of certain media.

    Dung beetles like to run in straight lines. When they find a pile of droppings, they shape a small ball and start pushing it away to a safe distance where they can eat it, usually underground.

    Getting a good bearing is important because unless the insect rolls a direct course, it risks turning back towards the dung pile where another beetle will almost certainly try to steal its prized ball.

    did i hear someone say faux news?

  58. those who write on craphouse walls
    roll their crap into little balls
    those who read these words of wit
    eat those…..uh, damn….crap don’t rhyme with wit.

  59. the stones could always be counted upon for a song to play in a bar band, with a few perennials like “Honky Tonk Women”…they have been hard at work for many long years now…..and they never let ya down…..still….playing a beatles song well in a bar always creates a stir.

  60. That was a cute video Bill but I needed to slow the vocals down to understand everything that was being said. Just listening to the accent is fun. I’m afraid I missed some of the funny stuff. I know we all speak the same language but it’s different enough that I have a problem. Heck, I even have difficulty always understanding what you write because of it.

    Even down in my neck of the woods I had the same problem. We have a lot of Cajun French people here. I don’t know how I managed to do this but growing up, I was not exposed to many people who spoke Cajun French as their first language. When I went to work at my first job in a drug store, to put myself through college, was really the first time I was exposed to that population. Some of the older Cajun people still spoke French but the ones who could speak English, hard to tell it was English, were really difficult to understand. I hated to keep saying huh all the time. Sad to say that most of that population has died out.

  61. ahhhh… nothing like waking up to an eclectic concert…

    In my little town there is a man obsessed with Roy Orbison. He’s dyed his hair black and has Roy’s cut. He wears heavy black Roy glasses. He’s a character… and Rick and I had breakfast with him yesterday… we always share great laughs.

    this is for you John…


  62. I was listening to a clip from Bill Maher’s show the other night. Some of his Republican guests were criticizing Obama for using the term “right wing” in one of his speeches. I guess they feel like it was an insult. Who made it into an insult? The crazies in their party, and that percentage is frighteningly high, have turned “right” into an insult. I’m not so sure the word “conservative” isn’t turning into a dirty word also.

    I realize that it isn’t the entire conservative party who are nuts but they certainly are the vocal majority and they seem to want their faces and voices all over the news. Many are becoming the laughing stock, at least for the late night comedians.

  63. Bill,
    Fresh fruit! I am envious πŸ˜‰
    Thanks to Australia for all the wine it exports. The best selling wine in my place of employment has a little kangaroo on the label. We now have two aisles and a section of a wall devoted to down under vino. Great stuff.

    Sunday Serendipity.

    A beautiful song and a beautiful couple. Enjoy! :smile:

  65. January 27,1967: Virgil “Gus” Grissom, Edward White and Roger Chaffee, crew of Apollo 1, died.

  66. good ike quote from article by jill lepore in this week’s nyr:

    Eisenhower reckoned the price of arms:

    Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This is a world in arms. This world in arms is not spending money alone; it is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. . . . This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

  67. Patd,

    Ike had been there and done that, unlike the contemporary repub. war hawks.
    He had a good sense of what he was talking about.

  68. a classic roy with a few stars scattered about…..the 3 ladies singing backup are bonnie raitt, jennifer warnes, and k.d. lang….jennifer made those big duets with cohen, cocker, and medley, and was in “hair”. such a sweet voice.


  69. Hi Bill,

    “And all washed down with some Kambra Kardonay”

    I have no idea what Kambra Kardonay is, but it sounds delicious!

    I also love fruit and greatly appreciate refrigeration, but for some reason my life isn’t quite perfect yet. :)

    I’ll try harder to have your wonderful attitude.

  70. “I guess they feel like it was an insult. Who made it into an insult?”

    Good morning, Carol.
    Looks like you answered your own question. :)

    “The crazies in their party, and that percentage is frighteningly high, have turned “right” into an insult.”

  71. Hey Patd, thanks for that link. Also the last paragraph:

    β€œIn the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex,” Eisenhower warned then. β€œOnly an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

  72. No budget, no pay’ advances despite reservations

    “In an earlier era, a move like the one engineered by House GOP leaders to pass a “no budget, no pay” measure probably would have been stopped in its tracks.

    The last thing we want to do is to say to people running for Congress, ‘If you’re not a millionaire, don’t run because there’s no guarantee you’ll be paid,'” said Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.

    But with Congress’ approval ratings in the gutter, House lawmakers pushed aside questions about fairness and constitutionality and tacked the idea on to an unpopular, must-pass measure to increase the government’s borrowing cap.

    The logic behind “no budget, no pay” goes like this: Passing a budget is the core responsibility of Congress, so why should lawmakers get paid if they don’t do their main job?”

  73. Sturg… LOL… no unfortunately he can’t sing worth a lick. Great video!

    sjwny… I LOVE a good Australian Shiraz. I’ve mentioned a new winery located just a few miles from me here in NH, Labelle Winery. The wine is very unique and made from grapes from your neck of the woods in upper state NY. If you’re looking for something different, give it a try.

  74. For a lazy Sunday morning
    So differant from the earlier rock version with Derick and the Dominos
    Eric Clapton – Layla (Unplugged)


  75. “If you’re not a millionaire, don’t run because there’s no guarantee you’ll be paid”

    My guess here is that they will get paid even if they don’t get a salary. Maybe not for the newbies. I’ve always wondered just how much all of their worths increase after they served for a while. Am I wrong to feel that way?

  76. From the tribute concert for George Harrison.
    While some performers become caricatures of themselves, Clapton just gets better.

  77. craig, i’ve noticed a correlation of increased glitchness to number of youtube posts in the past. is this a likely thing or is this just my imagination working overtime?

  80. Taegan Goddard’s Quote of the Day
    “It’s not the platform of the party that’s the issue. In many cases, it’s how we communicate about it.” – RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, quoted by Politico.

    Good work, prince rebus ! I love your work!

  81. that there old-country-singers-are-old-farts-and-jackasses is nothing new….they made ’em all move to branson how long ago? when’s the last time you heard a george jones on the radio?

    me and patsi coulda had a decent laugh over that one.

    Today’s country singers: pip-squeaks and puppy dogs.

  82. there was a crop of them country singers what come a’callin’ after 9-11…..that’s what nashville does, when something happens they all go to the studio and try to write a song about it which would hopefully go “viral”. when the iran hostages got loose thanks to the bush 1 arrangement the studios in nashville went absolutely ba-fuggin-nannas…..what got the nod? johnny carver with a re-make of “Tie a Yellow Ribbon” which due to his touring life-style made the all the financial swells back in nashville somewhere in the neighborhood of Not A Dime. Well, OK, they actually got theirs up front, he was supposed to get his from the concert tours. ahem.

    When Elvis died, this dude, ronnie mcdowell, made it into one of the studios….you know, since they was all working…..and recorded “The King is Dead”. It went viral and that feller got himself a nashville recording life out of it….like Kenny Rogers after Lucille, and the Gambler.

    so, a bunch of these guys gets a free ride because almost any 9-11 song was gonna go, ya know? And now the once-revered moustache pete’s are just old news and in the way. old farts and jack-asses.

    Course he coulda said it without bowing to convention of any sort. He could have said, “Old farts, Jack-asses, and Dead People.” No one could fault him on that, by golly.

  83. Not for everybody but I thought I would share anyway. I certainly had a very enjoyable 15 min

  84. The Republicans are trying to commit suicide and no one is giving them the number of the suicide hot line

    I guess it is finally safe to become a member of the green party. I was really impressed with Dr. Jill Stein and voted for her but only because I knew Obamarama was going to win in California.

    The Republicans are running as fast as they can to the far right. The Democrats want to be the nebbish in the middle. It could be a good time to join the Green Party.

    With one caveat I think it is too late to do something for the midterms and would hope for continued Democratic party gains.
    I live in safe Democratic District and I think I would like to try to do help out in a safe Republican District. Democratic candidates in safe republican dstricts don’t get much love. And frequently have to be coerced into running.

  85. nashville h’ain’t caught a break since 9-11….there ain’t nothing to write a song about.

    I mean, you can’t write a damn song about a black guy being elected president, can you?

    oh, patsi, goddammit.

  86. i subscribe to the solon theory of success.
    which means, if you’re not johnny or waylon then you’re not old enough.
    as best I can remember it, except for that Croesus part….that was a ball-bustah……
    Cracker-jack stuff.

    Solon, after fashioning up a code of the west for the athenians, gave up the head of the deal gig and went to traveling. Arriving at the court of Croesus, over in Lydia or whatnot, sooner or later he was pinioned by Croe with, “Who’s the most fortunate cat what ever lived?” Solon of course demurred, so Croe says, “C’mon, Dude…..give it up….ain’t this the coolest damn palace you ever did see?”

  87. Faire,

    I refuse to enter old fartdom, so I guess I am destined to be a jackass. There is a school of thought that says I come by it naturally.

    Needless to say I disagree. πŸ˜‰

  88. I am not convinced that republicans should yet be put on suicide watch.

    They were dead meat following the 2008 election, by 2010 they were back in business.

    You can’t fix stupid in the republican party, and you damn sure can’t fix it in voters.

  89. Hi, Tony.
    What a wonderful job you did hanging your new flat screen in your bedroom. Is it an LED? Like we’ve talked about before, you and I sure do have a passion for electronics.

    I love it when you leave pics here. And love your links too.

  90. and if they’re coming to chop off your head and the only way out is a boat…..get. on. the. damn. boat.

  91. LOL Sturge. You do have a way with words. After watching Downton Abbey tonight, I needed a laugh.

  92. Chloe, do you have any idea how I could get my Netflix to play on my TV? I don’t have WiFi. I used that little thingy, plugged into my laptop for my Internet.
