Leaves Are Down

And so another winter is upon us, and all the attendant holidays…. I understand the history of our Thanksgiving, how it was another terrorist event perpetrated by colonizers upon the native population of North America, but I also know it is important to build places of worship in time, and to give thanks. Such times are exactly when we should remember and discuss how the holiday–how our country, our institutions and myths–began, and these origins should not preclude our celebrating life, they should make the celebration more profound, based in an awareness of all that our species is capable of, the wonderful, the sublime, and the terrible.

Claypool is not a very good songwriter, and he does some neat stuff with the bass, but is also really lazy, doing the same 3 or 4 tricks on every song); 345) Los Lobos: Ride This (boss covers!); 346) Motorhead: The Best of; 347) Hank Williams Sr: Low Down Blues (Country got soul…); 348) Csokolom: May I Kiss Your Hand; 349) Frog Eyes: The Bloody Hand (Why do I love this? It puzzles me, but I do); 350) Altered Images: Happy Birthday; 351) Cafe Tacuba: Reves/Yosoy (si).
