Day 2879: I’m mad about ___

Because I’m mad about so many things right now, I’m going to perform “I’m Mad About You” — which I wrote when I was mad about the last U.S. Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings — at a remote Open Mic this Friday, October 16, 7 PM – 9 PM, EDT.

Because I’m mad about/in love with sharing my performances, here’s the link to sign up to attend that Open Mic:

Are you mad about any of my photos from yesterday?

If you’re mad about anything, VOTE!!!

I’m mad about how this photos has the word RIP in it …

… which I did.

Here‘s my performance of “I’m Mad About You” at the Jam’n Java Open Mic two years ago, on NOVEMBER 3.

Please express what you’re mad about in a comment, below.

I’m mad about collecting and expressing gratitude, so thanks to all who help me blog about all the things I’m mad about, including YOU!

Day 2870: October Surprises

I guess it’s no surprise that people are talking and writing about October surprises, since it’s only the THIRD day of October and there have been so many surprises so far.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure my very unusual heart can take all these October surprises.

Do you see any surprises in today’s images ?

When I used a phone app to identify that weird rash, which I’ve had for all of October, I was surprised to find out that I have hives !

Actually, since hives are often caused by stress, that may be an October non-surprise.

What are your October surprises?

Surprise! Here‘s a reprise of a song from a recent blog post, performed live.

I won’t be surprised if you leave a surprising comment, below.

I hope it’s no surprise that I’m grateful to you, no matter what month it is.

Day 2869: Trump

Trump

  • is President of the USA,
  • often comes up in my Coping and Healing groups,
  • frightens people,
  • divides people,
  • has said confusing, minimizing, and irresponsible things about the coronavirus,
  • has the coronavirus, and
  • appears on many little stickers near Wollaston Beach.

This Trump 2020 sticker …

… said “MAKE LIBERALS CRY AGAIN.” Now it says…

LIBERALS 2020 (more or less).

Let’s see if Trump appears in my photos from yesterday.

No matter what day it is, Trump is ALWAYS on my mind, even when he doesn’t appear in my photos. I hope enough people say

NO to him on November 3.

Also, Michael has said for years that Harley …

… is a Trump supporter. If so, I think the debate earlier this week changed his mind.

Here‘s “WE’RE ALL DOOMED” – Trump vs. Biden ft. “Weird Al” Yankovic.

Thanks to Weird Al, Sharpies, Michael, Harley, and everybody else who helps me create this daily blog, including YOU!

Day 2868: When we were sane

Yesterday, when I was trying to remain sane amidst insanity in the USA, I took this photo:

I think the world liked us better when we were sane.

What’s helping you stay sane during these insane times? Personally, I’m blogging, taking photos, walking around with my Sharpie looking for sanity, and listening to music.

I’m also staying sane by enjoying Michael’s delicious cooking, like swordfish on a roasted red pepper purée with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.

Let’s try to stay sane together by listening to yesterday’s pictured playlist (here, here, here, here, and here on YouTube).

Now I’m imagining the supporters of our insane President singing “Button off My Shirt.”

BUTTON OFF MY SHIRT

by Ronnie Milsap

I heard the word going ’round town
They say you’re making a fool out of me
Baby, it took me some time to come ’round
To realize you were not what you seem
Each day passing
The clock is my friend
Help me get back on my feet again
Like a button off of my shirt
Just an everyday distraction
You’d be over-reacting if you think that I still hurt
You’re just a button off of my shirt
And someday I will replace you
I don’t care what I have lost
You got what you deserve
I was down, down, down
I’m not the first
I won’t be the last
To make the mistake of believing in you
I don’t intend to live in the past
Just like they say
Some you win, some you lose
You never loved me and you made it plain
Now it’s my turn and I’m playing your game
Like a button off of my shirt
Just an everyday distraction
You’d be over-reacting if you think that I still hurt
You’re just a button off of my shirt
And some day I will replace you
I don’t care what I have lost
You got what you deserve
(Love and affection)
You started (changing directions)
You threw it away
You never loved me and you made it plain
Now it’s my turn to make you understand
Like a button off of my shirt
Just an everyday distraction
You’d be over-reacting if you think that I still hurt
You’re just a button off of my shirt
And someday I will replace you
I don’t care what I have lost
You got what you deserved
Like the button off of my shirt
Just an everyday distraction
You’d be over-reacting if you think that I still hurt
You’re just a button off of my shirt
And someday I will replace you
I don’t care what I have lost
You got what you deserved
Like a button off of my shirt
Just an everyday distraction
You’d be over-reacting if you think that I still hurt
You’re just a button off of my shirt
And someday I will replace you.

Your irreplaceable comments also keep me sane and so does expressing gratitude to all who help me blog daily, including YOU!

Day 2866: Fault

Whose fault is it that I can’t abide bullies who refuse to recognize when they are at fault?

Do you see fault in any of my photos from yesterday?

Whose fault is it that I am blogging rather than sleeping at 3 AM? Is it because some idiot is debating a challenger for the USA presidency later today?

Here‘s Manny Walters with “My Own Fault” for the Sofar Sounds Artist Fund.

Whose fault is it that I am so grateful, here and now ?

Day 2864: Where we headed? I don’t know!

Today’s title is brought to you by this greeting card, which I saw after we headed over to Whole Foods Market to get I-don’t-know how many provisions for the week ahead:

Those women look pretty happy and I am trying to adopt their attitude as we head into the final phases of the USA election campaign season. Where is my country headed? I don’t know!

Where we headed in this blog post? You might know that lots of other photos are coming your way. How many? I don’t know!

I don’t know where that photo montage is heading, here and now, because WordPress seems stuck in a loop uploading so many photos. The last photo uploaded is a Halloween picture, so maybe WordPress is scared! I don’t know, but I can relate.

In the meantime, I’m heading over to YouTube to look for I-don’t-know-what video to insert in this post.

Here‘s Snarky Puppy featuring Jacob Collier and sousaphone player Big Ed Lee from the Soul Rebels performing “Don’t You Know.”

Don’t you know that I was looking forward to seeing Jacob Collier live in May, 2020? When will I be able to see him? I don’t know! I’m just glad I can share his music with you here.

Where we headed? I do know! We’re heading toward gratitude to all who help me head over to WordPress every day with my head, heart, and soul to create this blog, including YOU.

Day 2860: Use my words against me

“Use my words against me” is something that wordy U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham said in 2016 when he opposed giving a hearing to President Obama’s pick for Supreme Court Justice, the honorable Merrick Garland.

Here are more of Lindsey Graham’s words, which I would like to use against him:

“I want you to use my words against me,” Graham said during a 2016 Senate meeting. “If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination.”

Not only is the vacancy occurring — because of the death of the honorable Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — in the last year of a Republican President’s first term, it is occurring mere weeks before the Presidential election. Therefore, many people are using Lindsey Graham’s words against him. But that’s not stopping Lindsey Graham from using more words to declare that he will vote to confirm Donald Trump’s conservative pick to replace liberal icon RBG, even before he’s heard any words about who that person would be.

So I would love to use Lindsey Graham’s words against him, but I don’t know how, since his new words indicate that he is against many words I am for, including honor, honesty, and justice.

Yesterday, when the former words of many other wordy Republican Senators were being used against them to no avail, I decided to go for a walk looking for other words to use against them. Specifically, I was looking for these words:

“Don’t let them win.”

I couldn’t find those words, but I found other words instead.

I am doing my best to use words against many U.S Republican senators , including their own from 2016:

Feel free to use my words against me, including these words of gratitude:
