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.
Steve Cropper on lead guitar and I think Donald ' Duck" Dunn on bass. I always watched Shindig and Hulabaloo. The dancers usually sucked, but sometimes you'd catch some good music like Booker T & the MG's.
I need to quit doing productive work and start a website where I can declare who is or is not an American based on specific Booker T & the MG's songs. Not to mention being able to write off the only pop-culture success that encourages young people to consider libertarian values as a "failure" just because I don't like it. Sippi needs to lighten up a little...
Yeah, I popped off a little early on that one. Got through the first 3 or 4 paragraphs and ran out of patience with the whole "I'm so over these celebrities" sillyness (I have my own "I'm so over being over these celebrities" sillyness). Though the "Green Onions" paragraph jumped out at me on the scroll down. Since it now turns out I don't have a damn thing to do again for the rest of this day (my own irony about being "productive"), I read the second half of the article and it did lighten up. Long periods of anticipation saps my patience. Still, entertainers are just that. I think we take them more seriously than they take themselves.
