This was from a Facebook post by Outlaw Renegade Radio that I saw on K. R.W.'s Facebook feed. Not sure what constitutes "one line", but I don't really care. Can you name all the songs? Answers are linked at the end. 

  • "But there's no danger, it's a professional career, though it could be arranged, with just a word in Mister Churchill's ear."
  • "Now up jumped the U.S. representative, he's the one with the tired eyes, 747 put him in that condition, flyin' back from a peacekeepin' mission."
  • "If I could stand to be on my own, then I would probably just leave you alone."
  • "Why is the bedroom so cold, you've turned away on your side."
  • "I drank a jar of coffee, And then I took some of these."
  • "He lies on his side, is he trying to hide, in fact it's the earth, which he's known since birth."
  • "I'm all lost in the supermarket, I can no longer shop happily, I came in here for the special offer, guaranteed personality."
  • "A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac, feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away."
  • "She ain't nothin nice, undercover vice done picked her up twice."
  • "I’m a collector of things that most folks ignore, one man’s ceiling is another man’s floor."
  • "I remember, ooh, how the darkness doubled, I recall, lightning struck itself."
  • "You ask what is this? Mind your business."

  • "Well, the moonlight ain't so great (since you're gone)"
  • "The halls smell like piss, the rooms are underlit, still it must be nice, you're such a perfect fit"
  • "Let's drive to the factory that thrived when plastic was a fad, we'll throw rocks at the seagulls and sit along the blackened riverside."

  • "I loved you, well never mind."
  • "I can't still be drunk at five, oh, I guess I surely can."
  • "You're a flame that never fades, jungle red's a deadly shade."
  • "This wheel spins, let me off, It's not the lack of trying, can't put my finger on it.""
  • What's this ol' world comin' to, things just ain't the same, anytime the hunter gets captured by the game.
  • "I am a patient boy, I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait, my time is like water down a drain."
  • "Why do good things never wanna stay, some things you lose, some things you give away."
  • "And if I only could, I'd make a deal with God, and I'd get him to swap our places."
  • "Knock down the old grey wall, be a part of it all, nothing to say, nothing to see, nothing to do."
  • "Last week my life had meaning, it was beautiful and so sweet."
  • "Someone tell me why I do the things that I don't wanna do, when you're around me, I'm somebody else"

 The Advocate has suggested that the greatest (i.e. only good) reality show ever, Rupaul's Drag Race , have a drag king contestant.  That's fine, but it would be much more entertaining to have a whole drag king competition. One of the best parts of Drag Race is seeing all the different types of queens compete: beauty queens, funny queens, conceptual queens, androgynous queens, scary queens, singing and dancing queens.  I want to see punk kings, gangsta rap kings, cock-rocking metal kings, panty-dropping R & B kings, country kings, baggy-pants burlesque comic kings, and of course, Elvis. I picked out some songs that make me think of different aspects of masculinity:  swaggering men, heartbroken men, lustful men, romantic men, philosophical men, and suicidally depressed men (interesting fact: I can think of dozens of songs by men about suicide, but only one female one: "Gloomy Sunday". What's up with that?) "That's Life" - Frank Sinatra


Over at the Bitch Blog , they were talking about female movie directors, so I had to make sure psychotronic faves like Stephanie Rothman and Doris Wishman were given their due. I hadn't known that one of my favorite female badasses, the Kill-Bill -influencing Dag from Bury Me An Angel (introduced to me by Dr. S ), was also a woman director's creation (should've known). Then I put in a word for the woman who started me on my movie-obsessed path, the fabulous Pauline Kael . She taught me to own my loves and hates and call 'em as I see 'em. Maybe some people wouldn't consider her a feminist icon because she didn't always like the "right" movies, but read her review of Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore for some keen feminist insight. She totally terrified those guys in the movie boys' club. I mean, George Lucas named the villain in Willow after her! Here's Kael on the New Testament: Pasolini's The Gospel According To St. Mathew

Things I Learned in 2020

Well, this has been quite a year, yessiree bob. But I’m being thankful right now of what I have and how my powers of Super-Introversion were activated by the current crisis as a laser-focus on learning stuff. Not that there weren’t many long hours of being too tired and paralyzed to move from the couch to the bed and vice-versa. And dusting and many other cleaning activities that didn’t aid in bodily sanitation were left by the wayside. Anyway, I hope that you too can make a list of things that you learned other than the details of the Electoral College.  How to make quick pasta sauce with canned tomatoes How to make instant oatmeal How to make creamed spinach Basic ASL Basic Inkscape Video conferencing with Zoom/Teams/Webex/Meet/Jitsi How to make ink-jet Shrinky Dinks Basic screencasting with Screen-Cast-O-Matic and Camtasia Online training creation with Niche Academy Online playlist transfer with Soundiiz Mask making Cuttlebone casting Intermediate Tinkercad Slide digitization Basic
