We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
When the Deal Goes Down, from Modern Times (2006). I think we posted this one in the past, but it's been on my mind -
"Well, I picked up a rose and it poked through my clothes I followed the winding stream I heard the deafening noise, I felt transient joys I know they're not what they seem In this earthly domain, full of disappointment and pain You'll never see me frown I owe my heart to you, and that's saying it's true And I'll be with you when the deal goes down."
oh, it is so good. his voice is just so expressive--the emotional emphasis he places on certain words makes me so much more aware of my own feelings. it's like shining a light on them. his slow stuff is my favorite.
