DIDO2

[This post lasted about four days before Blogger finally deleted it. And the pattern, by now, is clear: Pretty much every English artist or band I've featured in the past month-and-a-half has mysteriously disappeared within days or hours of the posting. There's no possible way that all of these artists/bands are represented by the same company/label, yet they all -- eventually -- vanish into the ether. I don't know what's going on in England at this point (some sort of government crackdown?), but it's become quite obvious that any posts featuring new/current songs by British artists will not be around for long. A sad state of affairs, to say the least.]

A CLASSICAL THANKSGIVING

The Plymouth colonists celebrate the first Thanksgiving with the Wampanoag people. Afterward, tribal chief Massasoit [seated left-center, with tallest & most abundant head-feathers] speaks highly of the turkey, maize, and mussels, but heaps highest praise on settler Josiah Bacardi [standing right, with hunting sword, lobstertail helmet & "Ye Olde Worlde's Greateste Grandpa" mug] and his "devilishly addictive, crisp as a New England breeze" rum & cranberry concoction.
The younger members of the Lancaster family share a good laugh at the expense of their dog-loving, Alzheimer's-suffering grandparents, Joseph & Irene. Suffice it to say, that's not a turkey ol' Joe's about to carve!

Today is the day we Americans get even fatter than we already are chasing our collective tryptophan fix sitting on our collective fat ass watching Cowboys conquer and Lions lie down. As for me, I'm gonna eat me some pizza. Rake some leaves. Then take a nap or call 911 and commit Suicide-By-Cop. Whichever seems most appropriate at the time.

Since I'm sure many of this blog's usual visitors will be AWOL today, I'm going to risk doing something different. Which is to say: I'm going to deluge you with classical music until I've put you in a holiday mood (or sent you fleeing).

Fact is, a little non-pop-rock-blah-blah-blah may make for a welcome respite, so here goes....
