Weekend Open Thread: Isolated Abbey Road Medley Vocal Tracks

And in the end the blog you make is equal to the blog you take. I have no idea what that means.

Lots of politics going on this week:

  • the attempt (or play at an attempt) to defund Obamacare
  • the Republican House of Reps slashing the Food Stamp program, thus punishing children and the working poor for the House of Reps blocking attempts to enough jobs to take people off of food stamps
  • Pope Francis continuing his pursuit of a commonsense spiritual path for Catholicism
  • Anaheim sinking deeper into the much
All of those should be their own stories, though — and you, dear Reader, are invited to write them.  (I’m sort of swamped — though unable to resist temptation, so I’ll write one or two.  Or four.)  I think that we need something to chill out with this weekend as we head into autumn — it will happen, right? — and so here’s something to settle your soul for a time: the isolated vocal tracks (occasionally with some instruments) from the famous B-side of the Beatles’ Abbey Road.  Boy, those guys were pretty good!

This is your Weekend Open Thread.  Talk about this or anything else you’d like within broad bounds of decency and decorum.  I’m thinking that we’re still a week or so away from the next Dearthwatch — unless someone wants to step forward and give Alexa.com a whirl!

UPDATE: More a capella! Featuring the best use of “baryons” in a parodic lyric than I’ve ever seen.


About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
