Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

What’s The Republican Party Cool With Today?

Pussy-grabbing? Check.

Selling off the National Parks, eliminating the Endangered Species Act, and dumping coal sludge directly into rivers? Check.

Making up terrorist attacks? Check.

Banning people of a certain religion from entering the country? Check.

Russia? Check.

Taking away healthcare from over 20 million people? Check.

Boyfucking? Depends.

Private boyfucking? Check.

Public advocacy of boyfucking? Nope.

We found the line.

We did. The Grand Old Party has taken a firm moral stand: boyfucking isn’t cool.

Nice to know that there are still some people with principles in this country.

Yeah, eventually.

    I respect your writing, so this is meant as a compliment: you were born (or made) for these times. “Nice to know…”

      After commenting, I read some stuff about Milo while listening to 7/30/66 and “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl.” This consent stuff is tricky, and I’ll draw a different line than he does, or (perhaps) either Pigpen or the original writer of the lyrics. Of course, people do stay in school past the legal age of consent!

        I think the best thing to do with the lines about underage girls in Dead songs is pretend they don’t exist and not discuss it and hope no one on the internet notices.

        • “Mountain Girl, you’ll be a Mountain Woman soon . . . “

        • Cover tunes fall squarely within the “his words, not mine” exemption for quotes. Bobby’s been telling everyone Mexicali Blues is a Marty Robbins cover since the mid-80’s, when someone informed him ignorance of Mexican law is no defense to morally reprehensible conduct.


    I just need to close my eyes look away, when the powers are unleashed by The Raiders of the Lost Art of the Deal.
