Simple Machines

Love and blame and love and blame and love and something is love, all the same
you give it up. you want to touch. you forget it all. and you know it's tough
love and blame, so many games, so many times, and it is the same

we try so hard
we try so hard
we try
so
hard

simple machine, simple machine
not the wedge or lever please
simple machine simple machine
not the wheel and axle, please
simple machine simple machine
help me, give me. what I need

pulley and screw
pull me to you
pulley and screw
pulley and screw

pull me to you
pull me to you

pulley pulley
pulley and screw

pulley, pull me
pulley and screw


simple machine
simple machine

help me out
efficiency
give me ease
allow me to please
simple machine
simple machine

And we tried so hard. We tried so hard.  We try so hard. We try so hard.

Back to that thing I used to do and never really stopped doing but mostly stopped

 I haven't written a music review in a few years.

Yet the emails, DMs, social media follows, sexts, still keep coming.

So I guess it's time I get back to writing music reviews.

Oddly enough I have still been seeing shows and occasionally doing interviews. I mean, come on, who's going to turn down Cibo Matto? And the others which I won't name until I publish a book or something.

I digress, time to start writing again.

Check out this sound resume:

The kids are old and don't need me anymore. The wife is old and doesn't need me anymore. The pets are old and don't need me anymore.

Just kidding, they all need my money.

.. and now for your moment of meow

Same Timeline: Super Sexist Posts

I love three favorite things about Facebook. 1: It's a great place to post pictures of grandchildren for Grandmas. 2: Grandmas 3: The immutable record of things people write and the emails and screenshots that immortalize those immutable words. Same Timeline: Guy posts a picture of a woman in a bikini, says she's cute/sexy/philosopher/M.D. - gets torched by the females that follow his page for the overt reduction to sexualization of human. Woman posts nude calendar of men with post containing juvenile sexist language and framing then her female friends say much steamier things than "cute" -- all proceed to get angry when asked questions about objectifying in a juvenile sexist manner. These are moms. Grandmas. With sons. And daughters. The future is bright. ... and now for your moment of meow (blue tits)

And from your lips she drew a Hallelujah

But baby I've been here before I've seen this room and I've walked this floor You know, I used to live alone before I knew ya And I've seen your flag on the marble arch And love is not a victory march It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah I heard there was a secret chord. That David played and it pleased the Lord.
