I never enjoy missing my show, and last week was going to two hours of some serious celebrating, but family first, last, and always. So there ya go. I saved it all up for this show…kinda. I mean, the polish has sort of worn off, since el douche bag (I won’t even capitalize that) won’t concede. What a little prince he is.

I admit, the slow burn is fun to watch, but not at the cost of our democracy, which this fool doesn’t care a lick for. It’s all about the ratings, and possibly because he knows that he’s about to have a few indictments handed down within the next year. So long, Donnie. I would really love to see him taken out of the White House in handcuffs, but that’s not going to happen, and it really shouldn’t end that way for this guy. Not that he doesn’t deserve it. It’s just not good for the country. The world isn’t exactly laughing at us right now as much as looking on with eyes wide and mouth agape. 

So I do what I always do when the adulting gets too much, I listen to music. And just take a gander of what I have in store for your next two hours. I want to thank my dear friend, singer/songwriter and all around fabulous human, Adam MacKinstosh for throwing a bunch of recommendations my way tonight. Some days I get so overwhelmed with my music library that it helps to have someone else’s ears around to lend a hand. Thank you Adam. 

New music from FUZZ, Neil Young, and local power trio KnightressM1. There’s also a celebration for the 45th anniversary release of Patti Smith’s “Horses”, and much much more to satisfy even the pickiest listener, including a 16 minute funky/acid-drenched Grateful Dead “Dancin’ in the Streets”, that’s sure to get you shakin’ your groove thang until the orange cheeto vacates 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

In the meantime, enjoy.

So here we are, four years later, and another election where we tell ourselves “this is the most important election of our lives”. And yet I think it is. Let’s go into Tuesday with our hopes held high, regardless of the outcome. No matter who wins we have a lot of work to do. Get involved in this great American experiment. Get to have a working knowledge of the US Constitution, as well as your state Constitution. Know who your elected representatives are and hold them accountable, regularly. 

If you’re going to be watching the results tonight, please be wary of the “blue mirage”. Most mail-in ballots are from Democrats, so it’s going to look like Biden is in the lead and will win the state, just to have much of that lead disappear once the election day-cast ballots are counted. 

Take a deep breath, it’s going to be a long night.

I’m going to be watching North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Arizona, Michigan and Wisconsin. These are the states that can throw the election from one candidate to the other.

There’s more I could say about this (and I have to my students), but you’re an adult, and you know we have to be patient. 

Enjoy the ride.

We have two more days until…? I would hate to think back to this day and think it was better then. Ugh. I know how you’re feeling; this sucks. And sitting here right now I know that it feels that it’s going to get worse if he wins again. And there are ways that it just might.

But it can also be an awakening. More people are voting in this election than in any previous election. Think about that. More votes on local and state propositions. More votes for local and state candidates. And if he wins, there’s the possibility that he’ll lose the Senate. He’ll be more of a lame duck than ever. 

Get your ballot in, or yourself to the polls on November 3rd, and be prepared to wait as long as it takes to get your vote in. 

Are you a geek for polls? 2016 was a horrible election cycle for polling, but the pollsters swear they learned their lesson. We’ll find out, won’t we? 

Check out 270toWin for a fun little interactive electoral college mapping along with recent polling. 

If you want to check in with master polling guru Nate Silver, check out his site FiveThirtyEight right here.

And take every poll with a HUGE grain of salt. And then vote. Vote. Oh yeah, vote. Vote even if you cannot stand Joe Biden, vote for him if you care even an smidge for democracy. 

OK, time for music. You need this show in your life. Make the next two hours special.

Enjoy.

This is a quirky show. Just take a look at the play list. I’m all over the place! But that’s why you tune in. You just can’t put Hellboy in a corner.

You’re voting, right? Seriously, I don’t care if you have to break out of jail, VOTE! And tell everyone you know to vote. Our democracy is slipping away. You don’t want this orange buffoon in charge anymore. He doesn’t know and isn’t interested in how our institutions work. It would be one thing if he did, and he systematically tore them down, as Republicans will do. This idiot doesn’t even know what the Constitution says, and he’s proud of it. 

Toss him out, November 3rd (well actually January 20th, but I’m not going to split any hairs here).

Take a deep breath and listen to some music.

Brand new music from KnightressM1Glitter WizardOh Sees, and FUZZ!!!!!

Enjoy.
