Chant in the name of the lordS, and you'll be free...

Wow - I've been listening to NPR's WORLD CAFE, and it's been great. Meanwhile, I turned on the TV and there was my wife, Avril Levigne, handing out the AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS. So, I figured I'd write about music...

Esp. about WORLD CAFE. Today's show - a repeat from Monday Nov. 15 - should be listened to in its entirety. It blends music I like oh so subtly, its possible they don't even know what they're doing. (Yo, now Kesha is performing!) But, they have a really nice set from RA RA RIOT which you can listen to, or download podcast: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=97744615 . Do it. Very conversational, related to Death Cab. I think they also reminded me of Ben Folds - or else these did: Featured artist BEDOUIN SOUNDCLASH - which is like the Clash, etc., w/o the weird voice.

By chance, they included Calexico and some Mexicale sound, plus some slight ska-ness, Kinks, Clash, Suburbs, Vampire Weekend, Fanfario, even a single from a Hindu group including my dead husband, George Harrison. https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/George_Harrison . Then they played one of Harrison's most amazing sounding songs, from ALL THINGS MUST PASS, "Awaiting On You All"...

You don't need no church house
And you don't need no Temple
You don't need no rosary beads or them books to read
To see that you have fallen
If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We've been kept down so long
Someone's thinking that we're all green

And while the Pope owns 51% of General Motors
And the stock exchange is the only thing he's qualified to quote us
The lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
By chanting the names of the lord and you'll be free

Why? As a transition to playing songs from the new APPLE ANTHOLOGY - which I want. Apple was an amazing thing. I've always thought there was a need for an anthology of Beatles spin-offs, and this anthology is kind-of it.

Speaking of anthologies - cuz it's xmas time - Springsteen's THE PROMISE also sounds interesting, although one of the songs I heard was AWFUL. Anyway, it includes songs that never went onto the DARKNESS ON THE EDGE album, including songs that were given over to other Asbury Park musicians. (Songs which sounded more like BORN TO RUN). That's what interests me. Now, I've always wondered why THAT sound - Asbury Park, and "Greetings From...", sound so similar to early Elvis Costello - across the Pond. I STILL don't have an answer for this!

OK - that's about all the music for now. Here's the WORLD CAFE link: http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=39&prgDate=11-15-2010 . There was another Indie group, GIRLS, in there that was really good, btw... Oh, despite his royal crapness, Kanye West's latest CD is apparently very good. Damn it. And warn't that cute how Bush's just-add-water "book" chimed in to cash in on the whole anti-Kanye thang?

Now - many of you want to know what snacks I feed my dog, since you all wish to imitate my illustrious glory and almighty magnanitude. First of all, boil eggs. Let them cool. Then freeze them. Great snacks. Also, go buy "Bacon-et" pork skins, by Frito-lay. They make very good appetizers. Finally, insert one of those little rawhide sticks into a hotdog. Wrap hotdog in melted cheese. Positively gourmet. Also, when dog gets tired of bones or rawhides, collect them and boil them with chicken/pork/fat - flavour with salt/etc. - freeze. Tasty recycled treats for you meat-easting beast!

And the award goes to I'M JUST A BEAVER!!!

that banana looks like will smith

speaking of hotdogs - yeah - my dog gets about a hotdog a day - sometimes plus an egg and/or a chicken leg - it's just cuz he won't let me leave the house otherwise cuz i'm his bitch

the chicken legs and eggs should be fine but aren't hot dogs so so evil? they give humans kidney problems and stomach cancer so they can't be good for dogs

i agree, it does look like will smith. i never noticed before. but it's making me simultaneously sad and excited. :(

well - you can block will smith by imagining the old chinese teacher from those kung fu movies... karate kid or grasshopper or whatever i don't know who the hell that guy is but he's always the old chinese kung fu teacher

yeah - i totally should avoid hotdogs - but i get 3-4 pack for $5 and that's a deal - i dunno what else to try - i don't ask for bones anymore at the hispanic meat market cuz they bother me

When I was a kid, we had a basset hound named "Herman" who would literally eat anything that you threw at him; tomatos, carrots, orange slices, peaches, apples; just about anything ... except lettuce.

For years, Herman continued to turn up his nose at lettuce, until one day he saw us feeding lettuce to our pet desert turtle, "Henry." As soon as Herman saw that Henry the Turtle ate lettuce, he rushed right over and gobbled up the lettuce right in front of Henry's snout.

For a second there, we thought that Herman would eat Henry after he was finished with the lettuce.

that is so funny!

and it shows just how human dogs are!

i've known dogs who would eat anything too - for some reason,lettuce rings a bell - i don't know why

when i worked at a restaurant, every time i would cut into lettuce, my upper lip would curl - i figured something inside of me was picking up the lettuce screaming for help as it died - but maybe there IS something anciently toxic about lettuce
