Well, all you young ladies  Who dream of tomorrow  While you’re a listenin’  These words will I say  Cling to today with it’s joy  And it’s sorrow  You’ll need all your memories  When youth melts away.

As for Gregg Abbott, when pressed by reporters about the appropriateness of his new pal’s comments, the [GOP gubernatorial] candidate, predictably, claimed ignorance. “I don’t know what he may have done or said in his background. What I do know that Ted Nugent stands for the Constitution.”

Sorry, no Tech Tuesday today — instead a brief post about need for more dramatic NSA reform than what has been proposed so far. It is already 4:30pm but I still suggest that you call your representative or senator in Washington, DC. Here are what I believe to be important demands. First, to…

1This Friday, I submit an outstanding playlist of Kinks’ covers that includes The Black Keys’ “Act Nice and Gentle” with me.  This mix from Spokane’s Sonic Trash Radio illustrates why Ray Davies’ work transcends the pop format and will live on as long as songs are sung.  Also includes The Raincoats’ subversive, proto-riot grrl cover of “Lola”.

One track that is a cover but actually pre-dates the release of the Kinks’ version is Marion’s “I Go To Sleep”, included here as a German television clip.  Davies’ demo was included on a deluxe re-issue of Kinda Kinks, after the song had been interpreted by everyone from Cher to Sia to Soulwax to the Pretenders. The song has a calming, meditative quality that is disrupted by the melancholic outburst in the bridge; it’s been a great solace the last few months.

It’s strange. You feel soothed and happy by the companionship of your daughter and your son-in-law, and the fine young people who are their friends and the members of your staff. And the cool, brisk, shiny beauty of the day. But simultaneously, you are way down and grieved, emotionally wearied by the troubles that you must try to solve—the growing virus of the riots, the rising list of Vietnam casualties, criticism from your own friends, or former friends, in Congress—and most of the complaining is coming from the Democrats.
