Something to liven up a winter Sunday morning
The Water Music is a collection of orchestral movements, often published as three suites, composed by George Frideric Handel. It premiered on 17 July 1717, in response to King George I‘s request for a concert on the River Thames.

Be on the lookout. The GOP is inventing words and terms again. This one did not exist until a few days ago, but is now all over Twitter:
Mass Formation Psychosis
Reuters Fact Check
I looked up Mass Formation Psychosis but couldnt get too far into it. Did see that it was a Dr Malone on Joe Rogan and it was then I was deterred from further inturdation.
Mass terrorist insurrection and mass traitors.
and here i tho’t they were talking religious conversion at the altar .
ducking before i get struck by righteous lightning 🙂

I’ll never forgive him for bringing those nasty children to my attention.
One of those groups who were actually playing their instruments and could always sound as good live as they did in the recordings.

Ron Johnson running, here’s the leading Dem:
About the Sly song:
Wonder when that was…. I looked into him a bit and seems he’s living in a white camper around L.A. at last update.
Sly’s still alive?! Nice
Ron Johnson has already lost. People are just sick of the shit like what he got. Loser walking.
The most talented musician I know is Sly Stone,” Bootsy Collinssaid in an interview with Mojo. “He’s more talented than anybody I ever have seen – he’s amazing. I worked with him in Detroit from 1981 to ’83, and to see him just fooling around, playing, jamming, is a whole other trip. He’s the most amazing musician.”
Bootsy ain’t no layback hisself.
Happy 81st birthday to Joan Baez
My favorite song by her

It gets scary when the invasion of ignorance happens in my state.
Far-right Targets School Boards
Wow, the opening of “Diamonds and Rust” sounds a lot like the intro to Aerosmith’s “Dream On.”
Prince was a genius, but he was heavily riffing on on Sly.
Mass psychosis in the 1930s. Yep. Fascism.
The meme, which came from the official account for the Texas GOP, used a photo of a COVID-19 test site line in New York and included the text, “If you can wait in line for hours for testing … You can vote in person.”
“…such an approach is “driven by a perspective that other people who don’t believe what you believe are the enemy, rather than fellow Americans.”
“..,experts on propaganda and internet misinformation said, the meme did exactly what it was intended to do. “The goal is to further divide people, but divide them by making them feel they’re part of a group,”
“You are being rage farmed,” John Scott-Railton, a senior researcher of disinformation and cyberattacks at the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab, wrote in a tweet to people who were reacting angrily to the meme. He said that responding to the tweet was providing the GOP with a bigger megaphone: “Your angry quote tweet = the goal.”
“Rage farming” is big ag these days.
The crabgrass they’re sowing only dies out from lack of attention to the little PR stunts, while Dems go on building the new and giving folks something to support because it makes their lives better.
