all apologies
and so there was turkey

qotd, massacre edition

"You know, if one person, just one person does it they may think 
he's really sick and they won't take him. 

And if two people, two people do it, in harmony, they may think
they're both faggots and they won't take either of them.

And three people do it, three, can you imagine,
three people walking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant
and walking out. They may think it's an
organization.  And can you, can you imagine fifty people
a day, I said,
fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of
Alice's Restaurant and
walking out.  And friends they may thinks it's a movement...

If you want to end war and stuff you got to sing loud.
I've been singing this song now for twenty five minutes.
I could sing it for another twenty five minutes. 
I'm not proud... or tired.

So we'll wait till it comes around again, and this time
with four part
harmony and feeling.

We're just waitin' for it to come around is what we're
doing.

All right now.

You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
Excepting Alice
You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
Walk right in it's around the back
Just a half a mile from the railroad track
You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant"

-- Saint Arlo, "Alice's Restaurant"

Happy Thanksgiving!

Have you seen the children's book "Mooses Come Walking?" I picked up a copy for my son a few months ago. Written by Arlo Guthrie and illustrated by Alice.
