Open Thread - Friday, September 19, 2018 - Funk Meta
Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.
~ Bill Watterson
As the funkin' squatter of the Friday Open Thread, I feel a certain responsibility to encourage getting your funk on! Back in the days of employment serfdom, I lived for the weekend. It was communal time. Socializing with family and friends, free of the work place tyranny. Part of my responsibility as a voluntary workforce abstainer, is to remind people how funkin' much work sucks, and that it is time to do your thing.
This weekend, there is a funk party going on!
A few of my friends have a dad band. It is a collection of some day job adults, plus some of their talented mostly grown children sitting in. One of the guys went through the permitting process to close the street in front of his house and acquired the noise permit for the band to play a yard party!
The band covers a bunch of funky stuff. It's a dad band, after all. Boogie all day!
There will be a gaggle of horn players, including a couple of the "children".
I expect a good vibe. People are preparing food and the Kolsch is on order. Serious booty shaking shall ensue.
On to the funkin' weekend!
I probably will not be around much today. I volunteered to help erect the stage, which undoubtedly will turn into a funky good time.
Have a great funkin' weekend!
