I think one of the things that is becoming very clear to a lot of people is that this upcoming administration is going to require unprecedented resistance. Let me make this crystal clear- one of the ways the Republicans and the bobbleheads like Kurtz, Todd, and others are going to rely on is hoary old bullshit like “this is a departure from tradition” or “decorum is at an all time low.”
Fuck them. We are in uncharted waters here, and you need to take your lead from John Lewis and not the media courtesans. We need a departure from whatever fictional tradition they have in their heads (and it is fictional because the last eight years of Republican obstruction threw everything out the god damned window). SNL, I am happy to say, is taking no fucking quarter:
“Nazi Germany at least had the guts to take on Russia.”
Also on SNL last was an artist I had never heard of before, Sturgill Simpson, and I am buying ALL his music today. Here is Keep it Between the Lines (the SNL recordings on youtube are shit):
I actually like his rendition last night better because the pacing was faster. Here’s Call to Arms:
This shit hits all my sweet spots. Brassy with baritone sax, good lyrics, and anything with a Hammond organ, well, sign me up. Although I am not sure why he has Joey Ramone playing the keyboards.
