Biding Our Time: Monday, November 8th, 2021

The Winter Of 79: I finished “See Emily Play” August 31st, began thinking about “The Winter Of ‘79” (Previously called “The Jippers” and “The Twisties”) on September 1st and on November 1st began writing it. I wanted to write about my boarding school in Lebanon, Brummana, but I didn’t want to place it in that thematic time period. I had written about the civil war decades ago and didn’t want to write about it again, so the obvious answer was to construct the school before or way after the civil war… but even that left me writing about things I didn’t want to write about. Sooooooo… I decided to place the events in a co-ed boarding school in Upstate New York, in the winter of 2089 -ten years after the end of the Second American Civil War.

Joe Biden: If another time and place my support for Joe Biden would be limited in the extreme but I despise Trump and believe in 2024 (or rather 2028 when he cancels the election) will foment a civil war. So if Biden was TEN TIMES WORSE, I would support him. The Matt Taibbi’s of the world are fooling themselves if they ignore the existential crises because they are worrying about #BLM and #metoo while democracy is being dismantled.

More Biden: Congrats on the mindboggling $1T infrastructure funding

The Good News About Last Month: it weakened Trump’s grasp on the Republican party

Aretha: I am up to the second of the Aretha Atlantic albums neither on CD nor on streaming services, and is a great album. I have no clue as to why it stiffed.

Braves Chop Up Astros: That’s exactly who I wanted to win if not the Yanks, the Astros are American League supervillains after stealing Yankees signs and beating the Yanks in 2017 to win the American League. But that Tomahawk, man, not so much… Meanwhile, the Braves National League 88 wins wasn’t much, proving once again that in the postseason so much depends on who is hot and who is not…

Mid-Terms Bloodbath – If the Virginians giving the Governorship to a Republican after twenty years tells us anything,m it is that the Democrats are in big trouble and for sure, Biden is on the verge of becoming a lame duck.

Transphobia: I just don’t see what the point of starting with trans people is. Freedom of speech is great, I’m all for it, but when you demonize the LGBTQ because for the first time the community has a voice loud enough to stop it is pathetic and count me out. Why John Cleese would question the etymology of phobia on twitter to smack them downs a peg is beyond me.

A Question Mark: the response to Alyson Camus’s new book “A Question Mark” has been ridiculously vicious. There are very serious question marks raised about Elliott Smith’s death, and while, unlike revenge, the truth is best served warm, we will take it cold if we must.

The Dream Is Over: Only the Jets could shed such a dark shade on their season as they did last Thursday, where they lost their second string quarterback had their third string quarterback perform well and still get killed by the Colts.

Astroworld Tragedy: You can’t blame Travis Scott for the death of eight concert goers at the Astroworld Festival on Friday anymore than you could blame The Who for the eight deaths in 1979. Though we won’t know for sure till the investigation is over.

Covid Overkill: I can’t even express how irritating to be vaccinated, prove it, and still be forced to wear a mask. Walking up to the balcony in Carnegie Hall yesterday I thought I was gonna collapse. This is cynical and bad news virtue signaling

Giants Win A Good One: The Raiders were three point favorites and the Giants were just very buttoned, excellent passing, two interceptions.
