Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Good Music Friday

Damn it all to Hell.
So there was a political convention this week, and despite the many INCREDIBLE things that transpired at said convention, it was notable for how uneventful it was, both inside and out.
The HASHTAGNEVERTRUMP failed to get itself off the ground, and despite the delegates from several states throwing their credentials at the podium before walking out, five minutes later no one seemed to notice or care. The Presumptive First-Lady-Elect plagiarized a pedestrian speech from the current First, er, Lady, but despite the best efforts of everyone involved, the media incredulity rang hollow. So then Ted Cruz – who HASHTAGNEVERTRUMPers desperately hoped would orchestrate a convention walkout with his legion of followers – was instead booed off the stage by Trump’s legion of followers. Then some speeches by Trump’s family, a speech by Trump, 22 protesters arrested in the course of four days, one of whom lit himself on fire while trying to burn an American flag, 50,000 HASHTAGBIKERS4TRUMP, four days of lamentations from would-be ANARCHISTS FOR BIG GOVERNMENT protesters whining that counterprotesters showed up armed, and it all led to something less eventful than Mahjong Night at Rotary Club’s Youth Auxiliary Bake Sale & Hootenanny.
Oh and Muslims keep attacking whitey throughout Europe and the United States.
But don’t worry about that.
That’s all going according to plan.
So what else happened.
Turkey was briefly overthrown before it wasn’t, then the surviving president launched a thorough purging of all of his enemies through every institution, with many a whisper that the whole affair was either faked top-to-bottom or that the coup was known by the government ahead of time and allowed to proceed. That ought to about do it for Turkey – the country will not see another non-Islamic day for a century or more, but no worries, Because NATO or something.
Beyond that, I got nothing.
It’s Drink O’ Clock and high time for low livin’.
Have a bitchin’ weekend and get ‘em the fuck in, whatever else you do.
