From The Desk of Art Damage. Bon Vivant, Gadabout, Retired Duke (Earl Of Prunes)
Hello all of you wonderful people, Art Damage is my name and this time, pinch talking for dear Michael is my game. Unfortunately, a minor case of Bell's Palsy has made his ability to speak unintelligible. While annoyed with this latest issue again rising up, he remains in good spirits. After all, he dealt with a much more severe case years ago, and was able to keep his then ridiculous 12 hour a day, 7 days a week content output, not including interviews, performances, auditioning music, maintaining a huge database, writing most correspondence, building and maintaining a music library, etc., etc., without missing a single show. He didn't want to do it, he had to in order to stay employed.
Once the recent Supreme Court Mandate was announced, removing the actual rights women fought for and have been afforded a year shy of half a century, citing arcane circa 1800 and earlier events that have nothing to do with our Nation's founding documents and papers. While I clearly remember those contained language that included documents clearly spelling out that separation of Church and State was essential. I feel a duty to keep the music going with From The Basement as a gesture of support and solidarity. I did pick all the music and hand mixed the show. I was going to skip a week but as a father of a daughter and husband of Cathy for 42 years, this Supreme Court decision had me running to the music library to stop from doing a dumb thing. The initial instinct was to start attacking every Republican in walking range with a rake, recording a new episode is a much safer prospect. For now, at least. The fact that there are no protections for rape, incest or the mother's health is simply Draconian. They don't want to just go back to the 50's, they want to return to The Stone Age. This is a dangerous, immoral decision. Especially if you read the text of the sex offender on the court, Clarence Thomas. Next up, Gay Marrage, Contraception and a host of other rights. Interestingly, inter-racial marriage is also threatened, so maybe "Big Dick" Clarence is trying to rid himself of his white wife, now that everyone knows she's a Seditionist and is looking at a potential indictment. If this doesn't get a majority of the deadbeats that do not bother to vote off their ass and to their local voting center, our noble experiment in Democracy is over. Just think, an 18 year old male can LEGALLY purchase an AR 15, even after the new Gun Law. But if he rapes and impregnates even a young girl she is forced by law to carry his demon seed to term. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK? Your humble host Art Damage will pop up with witty banter and will also introduce you to brand new Basement Dweller, Fuckeethah McDonald. She is also quite pissed with what's going on. Thanks to Art and Fuckeetha for helping to keep this thing on the move. BTW, Fuckeetha Rules. And so do you!
