04/01 Open Thread: You're Kidding Me
April First, aka April Fools' Day. Wow. So I presume that folks expect humor, but there just isn't that much that's funny any more unless you enjoy "sick humor". I mean, we have clowns, elected and appointed politicians, political contenders officials and pundits, but they're really not funny, though some are sickos. Especially the pundits. My generation didn't have pundits, we got truthful critical analysis from guys like Lenny Bruce, Mort Sahl, Dick Gregory, but they were cinsidered to be "comedians". Some of their kind are still out there I guess, Lee Camp, Jimmy Dore, Ron Placone, so history is rhyming again, but it is a lot less funny the thousandth time around. We had topical singers too, by the ton, and some of it was funny in a bleak, dark kind of way, but, again, less and less so each decade.
So, as I wander through my playing cards listening to Peaches en Regalia it hits me that I don't want to do any kind of traditional April Fool's Day column, I just want to bang on the drum all day, which, of course, isn't an option since I lack any drums. Accordingly, I'm just gonna play a few possibly appropriate tunes andhope that Joe doesn't feature any of them this afternoon, but I figure that the probability of that is around p=10-7, so here goes, listen and enjoy, nay savor the music. FWIW, there is a classic blues riff (or more) in here, no fair reading liner notes.
Whatever; interlude -------------------
