4th of July

Is still a time to remember the time when a large number of great men gathered. Yes, they were, some of them, hypocrites who wrote passionately about freedom while owning slaves, who spoke at length about free trade while smuggling themselves to great fortunes.

Yet, for all their human failings they gathered, they prosecuted an eight year rebellion and at the end of that struggle did not turn upon each other in a frenzy to continue the bloodshed.

They created something significant to the world. For that, and that alone they are deserving of our honor.

Tomorrow night, at some point during the show, I intend to turn my shit up very, very loud, and with the strat in open G and a coriciden bottle on my little finger I will play "The Star Spangled Banner" followed by "Yankee Doodle."

I. Will. Mean. Every. Fucking. Note.

Have a great 4th people.

One of my kittens licked my eyelid, then fell asleep in my arms. Obviously, she wishes you felicitations of the season.

If I understand correctly, not a few of those men of means also lost quite a bit, or all, of whatever fortunes they had. Not all that many lost their lives, but I think a fair number lost their wealth.

Despite the majority who claim they hate the national anthem, I am proud to be a descendant of Francis Scott Key... Happy 4th to all.

I wish I could have been there to hear it, MB.

And, should you choose to accept it, I am tagging you as a Thinking Blogger. Actually, I'm tagging you whether you accept it or not, I suppose.

Turn it all the way to 11!

Mother Nature provided her own kind of fireworks here. She got all into the spirit of the day.

And despite the unwarranted criticism from the uptight assholes who tought Jimi's tribute at Woodstock was unpatriotic, he, like you, earned the right to play it any way he wanted, and I believe he meant and felt every note.
