Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Good Music Friday

Posted in Good Music Friday by Huckleberry on April 17, 2015

Fuck me, it’s Friday.
Actually kind of ready for it this time around. A miserable end to an insufferable week, to be sure. If I get through the evening without doing some serious damage to my alcohol shelf, I’ll be greatly impressed.
In fact, the weekend is shaping up to be little more rubbing salt and crushed glass into sore, open wounds. From top to bottom, just a singular two-day slog through a gauntlet of social and semi-professional obligations that I simply would rather not bother with.
Such is life.
In the Week That Was, Russia helped Iran fortify their air defenses, because Fuck Israel I suppose, a math problem containing no actual math stymies the best and brightest that the Millennials have to offer, and the Hugo Awards continue to go up in flames.
Bring marshmallows.
Anyway, have a better weekend than I plan to, and get ’em the Hell in.

Song Selection

As I mentioned last week, this will be a bit of a different deal. While I wouldn’t call it “good” I will note that my buddy and I wrote this song 19 years ago — in high school — and our shitty band recorded it 17 years ago, and much to my shock and dismay, the Clintons stand poised to extend their reign well into my mid-life crisis.
Anyway, if it sounds like it was recorded in a Dumpster with the lid closed, that’s because it pretty much was — a tin shack out in the cow fields of Chino, CA, back when Chino was only dairies and a maximum-security penitentiary.
Anyway, seems fitting now that Clinton II has officially hit the campaign trail to abscond with the Cherry Blossom Throne.

    Now, I’ve gotta say that’s the coolest thing I’ve seen all day. Except for that beldam that kept sneaking into your video. Looks to me you might have a groupie.

    Awesome. Please print lyrics, and also is that you singing? Sorry I forgot to check this last week, but it was worth the wait.

      Thanks.
      Nope, don’t sing.
      Not even the backing vocals.
      That is me on the bass, though.

      Lyrics aren’t much, but here they are:

      These politics they make me sick
      So many empty lies
      Yet we go and re-elect all the same old guys
      We trust these people with our lives
      Have we lost our minds?
      They say Let’s Get to Work
      But we both know they’re lying

      The president spends all his time with his pants around his feet
      And jogging with his friends to McDonald’s down the street
      But we don’t care, in fact we say that he’s doing just fine
      Slap him on the wrist and say Now Don’t Get Caught Next Time

      All these broken promises, when will it all end?
      We give them votes for where our tax dollars are spent
      While the candidates whore themselves out every single day
      To the corporations that bankroll them so they can get their way

      The president spends all his time with his pants around his feet
      And jogging with his friends to McDonald’s down the street
      But we don’t care, in fact we say that he’s doing just fine
      Slap him on the wrist and say Now Don’t Get Caught Next Time

      These politics they make me sick
      So many empty lies
      Yet we go and re-elect all the same old guys
      We trust these people with our lives
      Have we lost our minds?
      They say Let’s Get to Work
      And we fall for their lies

    Should a punk song really include the word “yet”? 🙂
