Night owl music chat – Hey baby, it’s the 4th of July

Couldn’t in good conscience play the X version of this song, as Exene Cervenka is a total libertarian twit. So, the Dave Alvin version, instead.

Enjoy the rest of the 4th, Obots!

    Worst assignment as a pilot: flying into LAX on the 4th of July. We’re blowing shit up all over the place.

      Hi LL, just had to concur about Exene Cervenka. X was one of my favorite bands when I was a teenager. Finding out about her being such a psycho gun-loving, conspiracy theorist just broke my heart. I saw them several years ago in Agoura. They cut out the “Jesus Christ” part of Nausea so as not to offend born-again Billy Zoom, but left in every word of “Los Angeles”. Makes me think those lyrics were actually her own thoughts, when all these years I thought they were a social commentary on a fictional racist character. Ruined all of it for me, unfortunately (well, maybe I’ll still listen to “Johnny Hit and Run Pauline” once in a while πŸ™‚ )

    Billy Joel married girlfriend Alexis Roderick in a surprise ceremony at the couple’s annual Fourth of July party.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo presided over Saturday’s nuptials at Joel’s Long Island estate, the singer’s spokeswoman Claire Mercuri said.
    The small group of family and friends at the party didn’t know the couple planned to exchange vows. Among those in attendance were Alexa Ray Joel, his daughter with his second wife, model Christie Brinkley, and actor Kevin James.

    Desertflower’s post on the last thread reminded me of this.

    Back in the day an old club DJ boyfriend of mine put Summer Madness on a mix-tape he made for me after we broke up. It took me so long to get over him πŸ™‚ I think this was part of it – always one of my faves (Kool & The Gang, while they were still cool):

    Good Morning…TOD…

    Feeling that there will be an Iran deal…but i am also feeling that the VP will not be running for President…there were deadlines for both events.

    feeling a bit unsettled about 2016….will feel better…when the VP decides either way…then i will know what my activities will be…
