2-Strats reports on his snacking only to get interrupted by Stretch with a report of not just his recycling but the recovery of a rare stray intact beer! Has this happened to you lately? Hit up a comment with your story! Personally I’m at 3 within twelve months. Can you top that??
Our man 2-Strats sends in an update from the Denver Airport in white-supremacist shithole Colorado. Bimbos overflow. People who live in Colorado must have a constant messianic, apocalyptic fury and hold themselves for the last Americans that “they” will get, hiding out in the stronghold of the Rockies in the middle of the continent.
For those of you interested in old blues, Negro Spirituals, etc., I just now (!) found out about Sister Rosetta Tharpe while cruising Youtube.
Joking at her piano player while probably making up lyrics, ripping on a brand new electric guitar, and asking the audience if they remember her –remember, this is obviously the folk revival days in the video. But the best part is around one minute in when the audience starts to clap along and she raises her finger like “SILENCE HONKIES!”
Closest thing I ever got to something like this was about 10 years ago when I got to go to a show put on by Friends of Negro Spirituals in Oakland. A very old Odetta played in this church. It was transcendent, to say the least.
