Ahhhhh happiness. We got tickets – and for the last show of this teeny tiny tour. Fox Theatre in Atlanta looks pretty nice too! Ah, glad to be in the south.

When the President Talks to God

Going to try to post some recent photos sometime within the next few days. Actually will try to write a bit too but that’s been a dead end lately. Web design is the only thing I’ve been doing lately. Okay, also watching Lost & Gray’s Anatomy on the computer. ;)

For now though, check this out:

“When The President Talks To God”

When the president talks to God
Are the conversations brief or long?
Does he ask to rape our women’s’ rights
And send poor farm kids off to die?
Does God suggest an oil hike
When the president talks to God?

When the president talks to God
Are the consonants all hard or soft?
Is he resolute all down the line?
Is every issue black or white?
Does what God say ever change his mind
When the president talks to God?

When the president talks to God
Does he fake that drawl or merely nod?
Agree which convicts should be killed?
Where prisons should be built and filled?
Which voter fraud must be concealed
When the president talks to God?

When the president talks to God
I wonder which one plays the better cop
We should find some jobs. the ghetto’s broke
No, they’re lazy, George, I say we don’t
Just give ‘em more liquor stores and dirty coke
That’s what God recommends

When the president talks to God
Do they drink near beer and go play golf
While they pick which countries to invade
Which Muslim souls still can be saved?
I guess god just calls a spade a spade
When the president talks to God

When the president talks to God
Does he ever think that maybe he’s not?
That that voice is just inside his head
When he kneels next to the presidential bed
Does he ever smell his own bullshit
When the president talks to God?

I doubt it

I doubt it

Beth Orton love

I’m on another Beth Orton kick. I heard her live on Sirius Disorder yesterday and her voice just blew me away on the few songs she sang in the studio. Especially Shopping Trolley from her latest album. So Beth is on repeat on my computer. I think I’ll just listen to her all day.

From Shopping Trolley…

Words are but dust of stars
When they collide
I get lost in the sparks
Explode into the dark
And move like light on the sea

I think i’m gonna cry
But i’m gonna laugh about it
All in time
I know i’m gonna cry
But i’m gonna laugh about it
All in time, all in time
