This weekend's music thread is a supportive send off for the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaign. Songs about traveling, trips and adventures, songs about principles and issues, and any other songs you want to dedicate to them to cheer them on.
I like this DNC format. Substance, well delivered. In-depth snapshots of the nominees. The people, the people, the people.
To celebrate both this historic moment and send off Senator Harris and Joe Biden on their campaign to win this election (and save our postal service and democracy), the theme for this weekend's music thread is about running, walking, jumping, chasing or pursuing something.
This weekend's music thread is dedicated to our wonderful postal workers and stopping this assault on America. Songs about letters, writing, communicating, talking, listening, and getting the word out one way or another is what we're carrying door-to-door this weekend.
I've known the son of a powerful New York Mafia don. He told me, "They started telling me when I was a brat kid that everyone is just as crooked as everyone else. That no one is any "smahta," that that's just the smartasses talking out their asses." And they hate experts and smartass know-it-all assholes above all things (except, maybe, boredom).
Mask-wearing alone, though essential, will not stop the pandemic. It has to be part of a comprehensive plan, and it has to be proven in the laboratory as effective. But, even in a detail as obvious as this, there is no plan. Anyone can make and sell a mask.
This weekend our theme is for songs about up and down, stopping, going and even crashing...as Trump has done to the economy and our democracy...and is finally catching up to him in 94 days.
There is one single most important moment in the life of an epidemic, it is when virality is achieved. They should have known that they only had a few months to prepare.
As a way to remember Trump's inability to remember (or be competent), this weekend's music thread has five themes, each being one of the five words he struggled to repeat: Person, woman, man, camera, tv. For extra credit, try and post one song connected to each word.
You're invited to join us for our weekly live chat tonight (and every Friday night), Vox Populi! It starts at 7:00pm PDT. Hope to see you then!
