This weekend our music thread is going to be tasty because the theme is eat, drink and be merry! Songs about and by bands that are literally or figuratively sweet, sour, food for the soul and/or all about partying.

rainstorm

What we could really use out here and in many places in this country and world is a lot more rain and water. So in an e-version of a rain dance, this weekend’s music thread is about rain, rivers, oceans and water in general.

We-Can-Do-It

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming announcement on Sunday to run for the Presidency raises the strong possibility that the United States may elect their first woman President. So this weekend’s theme is a tribute to women, as singers, songwriters, musicians and as the subject of many a memorable song.

Give peace a chance

The announcement of a framework for a peaceful deal to stop Iran from getting nukes, coming as it does on the eve of Easter, makes it a good time to think about and celebrate the message of peace. So this weekend’s music theme is about peace, getting along, friendship and togetherness…and standing up against more war.

Groovy

Enjoy a weekend stroll through the grooviest songs of the 60’s and 70’s. Join in with whatever songs from that era bring it back to you, songs that were indelibly impressed on your life, songs that bring back fond memories of a culture about love and peace.

Yesterday was the first day of Spring, you can tell by the blooms on the trees, the warming days and the nuts falling from the Republican Congress.

deflated footballs

You were outraged by Watergate! You were incensed by Bridgegate! You were titillated by Nipplegate! But there hasn’t been a gate worthy of so much “air”time as the now infamous, Deflategate! So take a deep breath and don’t forget to exhale your favorite air-related songs that inflate your mood and blow you away!

    • At the Movies in the White House WH Screening Room

      With all of the hoopla surrounding the films screened in the Obama White House, I got curious about what the past presidents watched. What follows is by no means complete, but an interesting bit of history.

    • The 100 Foot Journey 220px-The_Hundred_Foot_Journey_(film)_poster

      The film is a truly great mixture of drama, resistance to the forces of politics, the adroit combination comedy, and love story, in a culinary battle for the utmost Michilin Star rating for an established French fine dining enterprise that is a mere 100 feet apart from a brand new (to the village) Indian restaraunt.
