I got behind this week and all of a sudden it was time to put in the DJ post and with me without a topic. We have gone over a lot of ground this week, but we haven’t really gotten to Stormy Daniels and her accusations. We have a sitting US President and a porn star and hush money. Kind of a cool trifecta of sleaze. Much more interesting than the Olympics this time. Well, except for Santino, maybe.
She is claiming that she has a stained dress like Monica Lewinsky. Trump’s lawyer claims to have paid the hush money personally. Novelist Carl Hiassen has a recurring character called “Skink”. Skink is a disgraced former governor of Florida that lives in a shack and carries a bufo toad in his pocket that he occasionally pulls out and licks for hallucinogenic effect. You think that you can’t make this stuff up, but apparently anything can be believable at this moment in time. One day Trump is just going to pull a toad out of his pocket and lick it during a speech and later deny he did it. They will call it “lens flare” or some shit. Or, “Rubio-style water”.
Politically, this isn’t actually that juicy. I mean, does anyone really believe that he is faithful? The days that some long ago forgotten affair sinking a politician are about over anyway. It is a bit quaint when a politician resigns in the face of scandal. Just refuse to admit wrongdoing and move on. The American attention span has been reduced to about 3 seconds and they will forget about it in no time. Just send them a card with a pic of your family to remind them of what a “values-based” candidate you are.
The other thing is, it is as yet unproven. If there is a dress with a stain, perhaps there will be some proof, but for now we must be content with Trump’s lawyer’s payment to Stormy for not having sex and Stormy’s accusations.
I have to keep this short and sweet this week. I have family coming in town starting tomorrow and I am woefully unprepared.
- Toad Licking – I have been reacquainting myself with psychedelica from the 60’s and 70’s and it seems like there is some hint of resurgence. I found some during Thrill’s DJ post a few weeks ago. I hope so. Current music is mostly shit and we need to revive the 60’s/90’s again. I include trip-hop in this category as well.
- Sex we probably should avoid whilst married – songs about porn, porn stars, hookers and one-night stands, Tinder hookups.
- Sports – The Olympics are in full swing. Let’s hear it for the Winter Games. Play songs about sports and competition.
Bonus – See if you can tie all of them together in one song. I know you guys can do it!
Here is the playlist:
