Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Sunday: Relax With Leon Redbone



I hope to introduce more of my readers to Leon Redbone. Inimic of many crooners and some say a parody of himself, I say this: in the 70s there wasn't a finer crooner, a finer fire-carrier than Mr Redbone of the laid back, revivalist nature of music of that time.


Accompanied in a minimalist fashion, Mr Redbone's truth and heart and style simply shines through.

When days were warm, slow, simple and honest.

Take care today, my dearest readers. Love your family. Treasure your friends.

What a refreshing way to begin the first day of the week. Brings back many memories of sitting in my great grandmother's large foyer. There you would find a set of drums, piano and organ. Her children, cousins and herself playing music from their time and this tune being one of them. Some of the musicians would be playing tissue paper and comb, bottles filled with water at different levels, there were trumpets, guitars, banjos and those that were unable to play an insturment would sing along. With the majority of these folk growing up in a rivertown, they would often play a calliope, while sharing stories about growing up along the river. Now that was enjoying your family!

Bubbles: ain't that great? Brings back some memories of a time when there weren't catastrophes by the day.

NFO: my pleasure. I just enjoy his music.
