It brings me tremendous pleasure, similar to the sort of pleasure that only 65% of heterosexual women receive during sex, to revive the Friday music thread tradition! This has long been a feature of the Right-Thinking from the Left Coast (which is mostly on the East Coast these days) and The Victorious Opposition (which is dead) blogging communities and now it’s here at RVS. Our mission is to bring your week to a joyous close and prevent you from getting any work done whatsoever.
For those who are new, this is where we put politics and all that seriousness aside and share music that’s relevant to the DJ post (or not, nobody cares) and combine it all into a playlist. Over the years, doing this has broadened my musical tastes and I hope the gang can do the same for you. If you want in, just post a track in the comments.
Now, let’s get on topic.
Where are the lurkers?
We’re two weeks in on this venture and I’m starting to think you value your time with your families, jobs, and dinosaur erotica slightly more than you do arguing with me about whether or not Trump’s most recent offensive Tweet was offensive.
Well, there’s none of that here. There will be no condemnations or mockery. Step out into the light and bask in the warmth RVS has to offer. You don’t need any good opinions, snarky comments, or crisp new memes. You just have to have a song to share. Is that so hard, you bums?
First, the dedications! We need to assure the lurker squad that it’s safe to come out, my friends. Show love.
The top of the list is Judge Dredd pro se (known to some of you as Manwhore). He is my Brother in Blogging and also the Father of the DJ Thread. Which I guess makes me the Uncle of the DJ Thread. I think this represents us well.
Next up is Mr. zoomwsu (formerly zoomzoom), the most capable Boatswain of the good ship RVS. He is the one who has lovingly crafted and cares for the gorgeous blogging platform you see before you. Keep us sailing.
My dear sweet pfluffy. It’s time to make an appearance or there will be no excuses. Yes, that was utterly predictable, but you must comment to get something new.
Grendel (Harley!). Truly the heart of this gang of misfits and its virtual community.
kevinmkr (some of us have the good sense to keep our old handles, huh?) is the only one of our group I’ve had the great fortune to meet in person, along with his beautiful wife. You’re welcome to visit us anytime in the Kansas City area, as I’m certain nobody will mistake you for an Iranian.
Finally, I’m calling out my favorite lurker of all time. SANTINO! You cannot hide, but…
Come out, come out where…aw, hell. I’m not doing that. It’s corny.
