Choose Your Own Adventure (Psychopath Version)

Played an event last Monday called the Wrecking Ball perhaps named after the Neil Young song or maybe the name refers to breaking up complacency. The recorded version is slightly different.

they passed a law last week

scientists can’t speak

gag order

they want every tape recorder

they want to control the blues

restrict access to the news

shamelessly they grin

there will be no facts without spin

they’re tough on crime that’s right

they own a patent on that sound bite

their grand plan unveiled

build more jails

they want to control the blues

restrict access to the news

shamelessly they grin

there will be no facts without spin

they’re okay with foul play

every little G20 cop got paid

but what’s especially perverse

is that this all feels rehearsed

they want to control the blues

restrict access to the news

shamelessly they grin

there will be no facts without spin

Insurance will probably view the Fort McMurray devastation as “acts of god” and limit compensation unless people prove global warming is “manmade”  which  actually people already have proved – so how will the insurance companies succeed at not paying out? No doubt they are currently up all night strategizing.

Worst lip-syncing of all time. Not even air in his cheeks! But then again being in your 20s in 1967 might mean you were very stoned and why care about lip-syncing if you’re tripping?

The again Sam Larkin once told me “Bob, hippies weren’t the main thing in the 60s. There were more straight people, just a few hippies.”

Sharon-Stone-today

And I know that’s true so Sharon Stone can take her bullshit about Bernie Sanders and keep cheering on the people who don’t want the fix in the machine.
