Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

Thursday jukebox

Set RhythmBox on "random", hit "forward", discard the horrible ones... note: if you don't see an album listed, I probably ripped it before Linux had CDDB-enabled rippers capable of filling in the album field in the mp3 headers.

  1. Arlo Guthrie, "Deportees"
  2. Mississippi Fred McDowell, "Soon One Mornin'"
  3. Townes Van Zandt, "Snake Mountain Blues" (Legend)
  4. The Cranberries, "Dreams" (Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?)
  5. Hole, "Reasons to be Beautiful"
  6. Air, "Cherry Blossom Girl" (Talkie Walkie)
  7. Cat Power, "Metal Heart" (Moon Pix)
  8. Tracy Chapman, "Subcity"
  9. Belle and Sebastian, "Like Dylan in the Movies"
  10. Suzanne Vega, "Blood Sings" (99.9F)
Oh, I also skipped dupes. Hit Townes and Tracy a couple of times. Interesting selection up there, from folk to blues to alt-country to shoe-gazer to grunge to electronica to alterna-cat (sorry, Chan is her own category) to "contemporary"...

Now for one more spin of the "Next" button:

  • Leonard Cohen, "Everybody Knows".
Hey Mimus, I promise that I did *not* rig my "next" button, that's what really came up when I hit "next"!

I am a black and white and yellow multicolored penguin making his way as best he can in a world of monochromic monkeys.

"Keep fighting for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce." -- Molly Ivins, 1944-2007 "The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."
