Hi, c'mon in. Thanks for coming. Welcome to Every goddamn day's special One Millionth Visitor chat party. First, music. And if you're wondering how I happen to choose Parliament's "Supergroovalisticprosifunkstication," I would draw your attention to the opening lines, "Give the people what they want when they want/And they wants it all the time..." A motto for the online world if ever there were. To be honest, when I began the blog, I considered having that song play whenever a visitor opened the page.
But a) I wasn't sure how to do that, technically b) there might be copyright infringement issues and c) as cool a song as it may be, eventually it would drive people crazy.
Which it might be doing by now. So what's good party music? Something you can dance to, or talk over if you wish. Maybe an instrumental. Maybe something jazzy. At the risk of tarring myself as an anachronism, I've always loved Milt Jackson, though it feels odd to listen to this without a glass of Jack on the rocks and a bowl of Japanese rice crackers: help yourself, by the way, it is a party.
So while you listen, and perhaps indulge, and dance if you like, I'm going to go to the comments section and jump in.
