Drinking Alone Open Thread

ZZ Top is the best Texas band EVER! And Degüello was their best album.

If the title of this post didn’t warn you, I plan to get seriously shitfaced tonight.

Pray for my liver.

    King O is visiting locally today. He is gonna solve the drought by giving a speech.

    He promised to “reprioritize funds” to help farmers suffering from the drought.

    I don’t dispute that those farmers need help, especially if we don’t have a few good storms this spring. But IT IS NOT THE PRESIDENT’S JOB TO DECIDE HOW TO SPEND OUR TAX DOLLARS!!!

    He’s gonna take money that Congress allocated for one purpose and spend it on something else!

    Speaking of anger towards American Politics, and stupid Hallmark Holidays, I used this video to sign off DU and Dkos after Edwards dropped out in 2008, and the O snakes took over. Haven’t returned since. It still makes me feel better 🙂

    This here is serious redneck music:

    When I was in the army this song was #1 on the jukebox at the EM club:

    Every time it played (which was about 2-3 times an hour) at least half the bar was singing along.

    Fun fact: “When the Levee Breaks” was recorded in a fast tempo, then the tape was slowed down. This gives it its unique “sludgy” sound. It’s also why Led Zeppelin never performed it in concert – the effect can’t be recreated live. Oh, and BTW, I view Led Zeppelin as the greatest rock band ever to draw breath or pick up an instrument in a studio, period, no discussion, end of. There are others that I may enjoy more on a given day, for various reasons. But prize for sheer musical greatness? Led Zeppelin, every time.

      Hands down my favourite band ever. CURSE YOU.racked my tiny brain trying to come up with a good love song last night that would play on over priced smart tv. Ended up with paper towels strung from floor to ceiling admonishing her for existence and all I had to do was play Fool in the Rain. Not fitting but my favourite song ever how can anyone ! like… well there’s a light in your eyes that keeps shining like a star that can’t wait for the night

        Raising her right, you are.

        • mothy67 says:

          Pretty sure she is the one doing the raising. Kids suck. Making me evaluate my choices. I don’t wanna play that game. Makes me laugh when I think about how I spent ,20 plus years having fun. Thought then hey I’m not hurting anyone so what does it matter. I’d opt for the Tim fighting with a toddler over veggies and not pAssing them off to the dog over sex on Mykonos any day. Don’t know how you are a straight T people do it. Everything scares me. She is 7 and I think I am finally over fear of SIDS I could (yeah right) walk away. That option Ian’ t there for real parents.

          • The Klown says:

            Pretty sure she is the one doing the raising.

            All those books on raising kids don’t mention that kids have their own ideas. Each of my kids came with their own unique personality. Some of that shit in the parenting manuals works some of the time with some kids.

            The real key to parenting is to get out of the way and let them become who they are meant to be.

          • wmcb says:

            Yes. Once you have kids, it’s not that you lose your passion for individual freedoms, it’s that the way society is structured, and its ethos, and its bent, and what’s publicly celebrated in a culture, etc becomes important to you as well. It’s not that you’re a prude, it’s that you suddenly realize OMG, I’M TRYING TO EXPLAIN ALL THIS TO A CHILD!!

            And no, my kid doesn’t need Hustler magazine staring them in the face. I don’t want a law outlawing it in the convenience store, but I’d prefer some voluntary societal standards of decorum. If that’s “hypocrisy”, too fucking bad.

    • mothy67 says:

      I’m not supposed to be here it’s all just a gorgeous mistake. Think it’s a LI e from a Sinead Connor song. I ran always from who I am and I hate Forrest Gump because to me it rewarded acceptance and punished the person that had to fight who had no choice but to run in her way to live to breathe. She did not accept her fate and she got aids. The moron reaped life’s rewards by being passive and gentle. Not my cup of tea.
      THROUGH LOTS of stuff in my day and have had to fight tooth and nail to exist.Then along comes an awful snowmobiling imp left at a day care Center. IT was awful .Rows of cages. I was just picking her up that one day. That was it then I could pass her off and go back to my nihilistic life. I cannot explain it but I think what I felt when I picked her up was that she trusted me. Seven years later and I go on amazon to buy new sneakers and some how end up buying a girl’s sarong. Can’t help myself I enjoy being miserable in the morning but dag BRat wakes up excited to go to school. I flat out tell her she’s a dork to which she responds not really making my own way and being true to me. Then I beat het.

    FUCK ME!

    Local television is preempting for Shitstain’s speech.

  11. The Klown says:

    I was partying hard in the barracks in Germany when this song came over the stereo:

    This dude was trippin’ on acid when it played. Somebody noticed the confused look on his face and leaned over and said “Jeff, be cool! You’re in church!”

    Dude freaked out.

    I have a serious problem.

    I may run out of alcohol before I lose consciousness.

    The local news channel is embarrassing the entire area by acting like rubes!


    Recording it is one thing, but they are acting like it’s BREAKING NEWS!!!!”

    Did I ever mention that my #1 DIL is a dead ringer for Nicole Kidman?

    (She’s the one who is carrying GC #5)

    My son married well.

    Remember if you drink a lot Zinc supplements can be your friend Fat soluble .

    • The Klown says:

      The key to avoiding hangovers is hydration.

      • mothy67 says:

        Not really. If you are twenty and went to a frat party then YEAH. As you get older if you abuse the liver you need to consider increasing foods high in the fat soluble vitamins. Zinc and A are the big ones. A person over fifty that has enjoyed more than an occasional cocktail might want to hydrate but excess fluids can have deleterious effects. Way more complex than I could explain but I do know thAt the dehydrate thing is just about feeling better. Egg whites in any form and a piece of whole fruit with no beverage will suck while you’re investing but will feel better in less than a half an hour.

    Watching Far and Away and admiring the lovely rolling hills of Oklahoma, and remembering that Okie Home is pretty much flat as a pancake.

    You can look at actual pictures of the OK land rush, and it’s flat, flat, flat.

  22. helenk3 says:

    Just watched Love Me or Leave Me with James Cagney and Doris Day. Last night I watched Love is a Many Splendid Thing with William Holden and Jennifer Jones. I really wish they would make movies like that again. Pure escapism with beautiful music and good acting.

    • The Klown says:

      They didn’t have special effects back then. Writers had to write and actors had to act.

      • The Klown says:

        Back in the old days the actors and actresses were under exclusive contracts to the studios. They didn’t make 1-2 movies a year. They made 1-2 movies a month, sometimes more. And they shot everything right there at the studio – no traveling the world to make movies.

    The First Lady and her entourage have arrived in Aspen for 3 days. How’s that war on income inequality the Obamas have been hammering away at recently ? 😉


    Geesh, a month after coming home from 3 weeks in Hawaii, how special is she ?
