Dave Brubeck – Take Five

Artist: Dave Brubeck
Tune: Take Five

I really don’t like tunes that are in five. It just feels weird. I like things that are in four. That’s so much smoother. In this tune, though, it really doesn’t feel strange. It feels right. It swings. Nothing swings in five expect Take Five. I can’t remember the first time that I heard Take Five. I can remember the first time I really noticed Take Five. I was in college and I was listening to Al Jarreau sing it. It was wonderful. Soon I had to hear the original.

Dave Brubeck died this week, one day shy of his 92nd birthday. (more…)

Crazy, crazy and more crazy

So, a judge in Texas says that there might be civil war if Obama is re-elected. I have never heard such craziness. Why wasn’t there civil war when he was elected the first time? Why would there be civil war now? Could it be that Fox News is over-stoking conservatives with craziness?

More from TPM:

Texas Judge Tom Head is worried about what might happen if President Obama wins reelection in November. There could be riots, unrest or a “civil war, maybe,” he told a local television station this week.

Because of that, the Lubbock County judge has decided the only way to prepare is to increase taxes to help beef up local law enforcement.

“I’m thinking worst case scenario now,” Head said during an appearance on FOX 34 in Lubbock. “Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war, maybe. And we’re not talking just a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.”
