It's the end of an era. It's time to lay this blog to rest. We had a good run, but it's time to move on. Please feel free to visit the new blog: "Fresh Dread, Baked Daily-treading water in the cursed mourning light". Thank you for the support. This page will remain for posterity. I'll now close this chapter of my life and cling to air-brushed memories of days past. ~ Adam
"In every American community you have varying shades of political opinion.One of the shadiest of these is the Liberals, an outspoken group on many subjects, 10 degrees to the left of center in good times, and 10 degrees to the right if it effects them personally."~Phil Ochs It was 32 years ago today that, self described, "singing journalist" Phil Ochs died. Ochs, labeled a protest singer by many, preferred to be called a topical singer. The singer/songwriter hanged himself after a lengthy downward spiral of self-destructive behavior. Here's one of my favorite Phil Ochs' songs along with a video demonstrating how it can be applied to Hillary Clinton and her kind. I prefer the updated version of the song by Jello Biafra & Mojo Nixon, but neither one of them died on this date... yet. Here are the lyrics to both the newer, and the original versions. ... but wait!, here's an even more timely version(new to me).
