“Sometimes absurdism is really all we have left.” .. CMNZ
Three cheers for this week’s further coarsening of public discourse as the United States, as a nation, debated immigration policy and the Space Force. Personally, I think we did OK here on this blog. We didn’t call each other names and there were a few apologies granted and accepted. This doesn’t usually happen on my lively Facebook feed full of “friends and family” that I almost always disagree with. There is a cache of my husband’s friends that have opposing views that go at it but in the end stay close friends. My brother has some friends that troll
his Trump bullshit him and he gives it right back. Facebook is good old-fashioned rubbernecking and people watching fun for a homebody like me that really doesn’t like people all that much. I can keep up with cousins and aunts and uncles that I otherwise would not. I also have a few old RTFLC people that have declined to join us for some reason. I also have a republican vegan animal rescue advocate that I played WoW with, and a cousin in rural Mo. that has a demolition derby complete with old cars and a track for her kids on the property. They do monster truck competitions, something that I probably wouldn’t ordinarily know.
Oh, and Harley and Dredd :-). I am happy to friend anyone here. I don’t post politics on Facebook, but I do comment on occasion.
I mention Facebook because one of our threads this week reminded me of how I see my friends/family discuss things with each other and strangers. It is a bit of a weird eye through the keyhole experience. The result of the mish mash of friends, friends of friends and family and people that I can’t remember where I know them from is a feed that runs pretty ridiculous and I know that it influences my responses sometimes. Half the shit is probably made up in a Lithuanian whorehouse and the other half is satire.
I learned about this from Facebook:
Totally educational and looks like fun if you ask me. I think we need to unwind here at RVS, but instead of smacking crap with a bat, play some music. The music thread is always pretty much a free-for-all and free from mudslinging so let it all out. No one is going to say anything. We probably ran off most of the snowflakes with the GG Allin thread anyway. There are two categories for this week:
Ridiculous Songs – Songs with little to no meaning or gibberish, parodies or comedies.
Offensive Songs – Songs that were either meant to be offensive or later on seemed “out of touch”. Offensive is, of course in the eye of the beholder, but be as offensive as you want to be. This is also good for just raging, anger and violence, all of which are wildly inappropriate in public but acceptable in song. Enjoy these songs, they don’t make many of them anymore.
