Hippie Thanksgiving Song in my Head: Alice’s Restaurant

Happy Thanksgiving! My personal Thanksgiving tradition is listening to Arlo Guthrie’s classic hippie tale “Alice’s Restaurant” from 1967 in it’s entirety. A visit with Alice, Officer Obbie and the draft board in New York, a laugh in the day and a bit of nostalgia from my youth:

Enjoy! Thanks for tuning in…

16 Quotes on Politicians from American Humorist Will Rogers

“This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.”
– Will Rogers

2.) “I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.”
– Will Rogers

American humorist, writer and actor Will Rogers

It is fascinating to me how Rogers’ quips, written in the early 1900’s, resonate so soundly today. His biting wisdom and humor held both Republican and Democrat feet to his sarcastic fire when he felt they deserved it, which was often.

3.) “Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.”
– Will Rogers

How appropriate for today! Think of the influence that John Stewart and Bill Maher (comedians) have on the voting public.

“William Penn Adair “Will” Rogers (November 4, 1879 – August 15, 1935) was an American cowboy, vaudeville performer, humorist, social commentator and motion picture actor. He was one of the world’s best-known celebrities in the 1920s and 1930s.” via Wikipedia

Freeform Wednesday: Funny Indie Film Parody

Hilarious! Aren’t you tired of predictable, “feel good”, dramatic indie films? This trailer for “Not Another Sundance Movie” pokes fun at these goofy, sappy movies and their “wannabe” directors, yearning to bloom at Sundance.

My personal favorite quote from this one:
“Featuring a stirring performance by a young ethnic girl that’s guaranteed to be nominated for an Oscar, but not win, subsequently leading to her fall back into obscurity, hit rock bottom and show up on celebrity rehab after having a child at sixteen.”

Chocolate on my fingers, icing on my lips
Sugar diabetes and blubber on my hips

So I can go downstairs and cruise
I got them oreo creme sandwich
Chocolate covered creme filled cookie blues
