Home on a lazy Sunday…

Lazy Sunday, too lazy for blogging, particularly after last week. So instead, here’s some tunage from a group I recently discovered. I’ll be back tomorrow.

Yeah, that’s sort of how I feel after a couple of trips in a row.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.

Very catchy song but that has to be the most hipster video ever. I half expected it to be a commercial for PBR.

“Hipster video”? You’ve got to be kidding. For one thing, these guys really do seem to think they are the reincarnation of southern California bands from 1968 like The Mamas and the Papas. They look about as un-hipster to me as it gets. I mean, come on. These guys did a remake of David Bowie’s “Memory of a Free Festival,” which is one reason I like ’em.

Oh, crud. I am already tired of this song because it is getting too much radio play. And I only listen to the radio when I drive, and that is not very much!

It reminds me of “Home, home on the range… where the deer and the antelope reign!”. I keep expecting to hear a whip crack and a “Yee Haw!” at some point. That is as anti-hipster as you can get.


(I speak as someone who had to listen to one of my sister’s ex-boyfriends in the late 1970s in Arizona boast about poaching deer from a helicopter… a double “eww” on anything cowboy related)

Mamas and Papas (which is my generation, not yours), double AAAARGH!
