>Revolutionary Thursday


Sorry to do a “cheat post” today by pasting in a video, but this is so where I’m at lately in my head…I want to dance on tables and sing about counter-culture with my friends over wine and beer and start a revolution of love and acceptance and art and empowerment. Join me if you will:

Viva La Breen Boheme!

Dearly beloved
We gather here to say our goodbyes
Here she lies
No one knew her worth
The late great daughter of Mother Earth
On these nights when we celebrate the birth

In that little town of Bethlehem
We raise our glass, you bet your ass to

La vie boheme

To days of inspiration, playing hooky, making something out of nothing
The need to express, to communicate
To going against the grain, going insane, going mad

To loving tension, no pension, to more than one dimension
To starving for attention hating convention, hating pretension
Not to mention of course hating dear old mom and dad

To riding your bike midday past the three piece suits
To fruits, to no absolutes
To Absolut, to choice, to the Village Voice
To any passing fad

To being an ‘us’ for once
Instead of a ?’hem’
La vie boheme
La vie boheme

To hand crafted beers made in local breweries
To yoga, to yogurt, to rice and beans and cheese
To leather, to dildos to curry vindaloo
To huevos rancheros and Maya Angelou

Emotion, devotion, to causing a commotion
Creation, vacation, mucho masturbation

Compassion, to fashion, to passion when it’s new
To Sontag, to Sondheim, to anything taboo

Ginsberg, Dylan, Cunningham and Cage
Lenny Bruce, Langston Hughes, to the stage
To Uta, to Buddha, Pablo Neruda, too

Why Dorothy and Toto went over the rainbow
To blow off auntie Em

La vie boheme

Bisexuals, trisexuals, homo sapiens
Carcinogens, hallucinogens, men, Pee Wee Herman
German wine, turpentine, Gertrude Stein
Antonioni, Bertolucci, Kurosawa, Carmina Burana

To apathy, to entropy, to empathy, ecstasy
Vaclav Havel, The Sex Pistols, 8BC
To no shame never playing the fame game
To marijuana
To sodomy, it’s between god and me

La vie boheme

To dance
No way to make a living, masochism, pain, perfection.
Muscle spasms, chiropractors, short careers, eating disorders
Adventure, tedium, no family, boring locations
Darkrooms, perfect faces, egos, money
Hollywood and sleaze
Food of love, emotion, mathematics, isolation, rhythm
Power, feeling
Harmony and heavy competition
Revolution, justice
Screaming for solutions
Forcing changes, risk and danger
Making noise and making pleas
To faggots, lezzies, dykes, cross dressers too

To me

To you, and you and you, you and you
To people living with, living with, living with
Not dying from disease
Let he among us without sin
Be the first to condemn

La Vie Bohème

Anyone out of the mainstream
Is anyone in the mainstream?
Anyone alive with a sex drive
Tear down the wall
Aren’t we all
The opposite of war isn’t peace
It’s creation

Viva La Vie Bohème
