Incongruity.
I have gazed long into the abyss, and the abyss wants to MAGA.
So feeling bleak, but having this crazy weird song stuck in my head.

And now, like the Ring video, I pass it on.

Been singing this to myself this morning.
It's just a sweet tune and a silly story. Not going to be so agressively pensive today

Me too, I heard it on the radio last weekend - so fucking appropriate.  Paul Weller's abstract expressionistic lyrics about a sagging UK reflects the way I feel about the US right now.  And, I see Trump lording over it all, claiming each microburst of input that rises above the poverty and emptyiness and loss that fills the Red states like a drone of static on a mistuned radio channel, claming it as his contribution to their bread and circuses with a proclimation of 'That's Entertainment'.

A police car and a screaming siren
A pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete
A baby wailing and stray dog howling
The screech of brakes and lamp light blinking

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

A smash of glass and a rumble of boots
An electric train and a ripped up 'phone booth
Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat
Lights going out and a kick in the balls

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Days of speed and slow time Mondays
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
Watching the news and not eating your tea
A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Waking up at six am on a cool warm morning
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquillity of solitude
Getting a cab and travelling on buses
Reading the graffiti about slashed seat affairs

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Now where I come from
We don't let society tell us how it's supposed to be
-Uptown, Prince 👉

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.

I could listen to this soundtrack while I code every day:

I agree with Clunn, which makes me feel all weird inside.

That's Entertainment reminds me of this song, the lyrics of which also seems weirdly appropriate.




"Rebellion (Lies)"

Sleeping is giving in
No matter what the time is
Sleeping is giving in
So lift those heavy eyelids

People say that you'll die
Faster than without water
But we know it's just a lie
Scare your son and scare your daughter

People say that your dreams are the only things that save ya
Come on baby in our dreams, we can live our misbehaviour

Every time you close your eyes (Lies, lies) [x4]
Every time you close your eyes [x4]

People try and hide the night
Underneath the covers
People try and hide the light
Underneath the covers
Come on hide your lovers, underneath the covers
Come on hide your lovers, underneath the covers
Hidin' from your brothers, underneath the covers
Come on hide your lovers underneath the covers

People say that you'll die
Faster than without water
But we know it's just a lie
Scare your son and scare your daughter
Scare your son and scare your daughter
Scare your son and scare your daughter

Now here's the sun, it's alright! (Lies, lies)
Now here's the moon, it's alright! (Lies, lies)
Now here's the sun, it's alright! (Lies, lies)
Now here's the moon, it's alright! (Lies, lies)

Every time you close your eyes (Lies, lies) [x4]

Every time you close your eyes
Every time you close your eyes
Every time you close your eyes

I taught my kids this song at a very young age.

evidence trumps experience | performance over perfection | responsibility – authority = scapegoat | emotions motivate; data doesn't
