Anyone can make a facemask.

The Border Wall at El Centro is moving right along.

Heartfelt thanks to The True Heros of this crisis [sarc alert].

Google has filed a new trademark application with the USPTO for the name “Pigweed.”[More here.]

German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) sarcastically identified common “tricks, dodges, and chicanery” used in debate in 38 Ways to Win an Argument. They’re all underhanded and dishonest, and are prevalent in today’s media.

Saturday Matinee – Black Oak Arkansas, The Osborne Brothers & John Lee Hooker+

Black Oak Arkansas‘ 1971 cover of LaVerne Baker’s 1956 hit is a good one, but that video is just embarrassing.

The Osborne Bros.‘ 1972 recording of Midnight Flyer was covered by a lot of folks (including the Eagles). I like the original better.

John Lee Hooker, with Elvin Bishop. Paul Butterfield, J.J. Cale & Carlos Santana, in 1986. That’s some badass boogie.

Yeah, that’s an eclectic mix.  I couldn’t quite find what I was originally looking for, kept getting distracted and then forgot where I started.
Have a great weekend, folks. Go outside, do what you wanna do, and ignore the virus-shamers – they’re not worth the attention.

[Update 2: Looks like it’s either a mistake or a joke that went viral. ]
