Paul Simon at 9/11 Ten Year Memorial

(Much better quality here:  http://news.yahoo.com/video-paul-simon-s-9-11-performance.html)

Thank you, Paul.  Many are the contributions of Americans to the world in beautiful music that touches the soul, American ingenuity and inventions,  and in so many acts of kindness and charity.  The evil people who struck our country on 9/11 have produced nothing but destruction.  They didn’t even have the planes they used to destroy these buildings and lives.  The sons of bitches had to steal them from us. 

For the youngsters:

Beautiful Star of Bethlehem (video and lyrics)

Beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shining far through shadows dim
Giving the light for those who long have gone
Guiding the wise men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay
O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

O beautiful star the hope of life
Guiding the pilgrims through the night
Over the mountains ’til the break of dawn
Into the land of perfect day
It will give out a lovely ray
O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine upon us until the glory dawns
Give us a lamp to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

O beautiful star the hope of grace
For the redeemed, the good and the blessed
Yonder in glory when the crown is won
Jesus is now the star divine
Brighter and brighter He will shine
O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine upon us until the glory dawns
Give us a lamp to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

Give us a lamp to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day

O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

Wise Men Still Seek Him

“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in

the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Blago and Elvis connection

Had he survived, Elvis Presley would be celebrating his 75th birthday this year. The King lives again at Heritage Auctions’ August 14th Elvis Auction at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis. The auction is topped by the listing of Elvis Presley’s White Knabe Grand Piano which is expected to bring in over $1 million. Other items up for bid include his original 1955 RCA Contract, a signed Graceland Purchase Agreement, personal address book, love letter, jumpsuit and handgun.

And speaking of Elvis and Auction:

Disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s personal belongings are set to go up for auction by the storage facility to which he owes one year’s worth of back rent. Indeed, Boyer-Rosene Moving & Storage, a Chicago-area moving and storage company, plans to sell the contents of seven 5′ by 7′ wooden storage crates he has rented for the past eight years (as seen below), according to Paul Lombardo, Boyer-Rosene’s chief executive officer.

Most of the contents of the crates are documents, but there’s one intriguing item: a life-size statue of crooner Elvis Presley with a microphone in hand.

H/T Laree.

Note: “”  This is a parody of “You Picked a Fine Time to Leave Me, Lucille” by Kenny Rogers. Written and sung by Jonathan McWhite. Guitar accompaniment by David McWhite.  If you don’t agree with the video, just write it off as neo-con propaganda, which you probably already have.””   🙂

Merry Christmas From the Family

My favorite for fun Christmas song. 🙂

Sing Along!
Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk at our Christmas party
We were drinking champagne punch and homemade eggnog
Little sister brought her new boyfriend
He was a Mexican
We didn’t know what to think of him until he sang
Felis Navidad, Felis Navidad

Brother Ken brought his kids with him
The three from his first wife Lynn
And the two identical twins from his second wife Mary Nell
Of course he brought his new wife Kay
Who talks all about AA
Chain smoking while the stereo plays Noel, Noel
The First Noel

Carve the Turkey
Turn the ball game on
It’s margaritas when the eggnog’s gone
Send somebody to the Quickpak Store
We need some ice and an extension chord
A can of bean dip and some Diet Rites
A box of tampons, some Marlboro Lights
Hallelujah everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the family

Fred and Rita drove from Harlingen
I can’t remember how I’m kin to them
But when they tried to plug their motor home in
They blew our Christmas lights
Cousin David knew just what went wrong
So we all waited out on our front lawn
He threw the breaker and the lights came on
And we sang Silent Night, Silent Night, Oh Holy Night

Carve the turkey turn the ball game on
Drink Bloody Marys
Cause We All Want One!
Send somebody to the Stop ‘N Go
We need some celery and a can of fake snow
A bag of lemons and some Diet Sprites
A box of tampons, some Salem Lights
Hallelujah, everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the Family

Felis Navidad!

Robert Earl Keen.

Rather appropriately, mystery pervades the career of Robert Earl Keen, the most successful artist that many Americans have never heard. He’s had his songs recorded by George Strait, Lyle Lovett, Shawn Colvin, the Dixie Chicks and the Highwaymen (Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash & Kris Kristofferson); appeared in such prestigious publications as Playboy and Men’s Journal; performed on Late Night With Conan O’Brien and The Today Show; had Garth Brooks mention his music in one of his own songs, and played concert venues steadily for more than 20 years. By his own admission, he’s never had a song hit the Top 10 of a major chart, and yet he consistently plays sold-out shows for audiences that number sometimes as many as 25,000.

Music greats – Delaney and Bonnie, Bekka Bramlett

I think Bekka Bramlett is a great singer; first heard her on Imus in the Morning with Sam Cook, that’s the great Sam Cook, Live and before 9:00 in the morning. That’s what I’m talkin’ about.

But little did I know until I started searching around…..no wonder she has so much talent when Bonnie and Delaney are her mom and dad.  Delaney passed away on December 28, 2008. RIP Delaney Bramlett and God bless you, Bekka.
