Monday Morning Aural Sex: 2012-05-28 (Memorial Day Edition, Part 1)

Edit: 08-14-2012 - Removed this podcast to make room for new one.  Message me if you'd like to hear this podcast.

Happy Monday, my muthafuckin' gorgeous perverts out there in Pervtopia.  It's Memorial Day and this is the 1st part of the 2 part Memorial Day Edition of Monday Morning Aural Sex.  Mind you, I would've said "Happy Memorial Day," but... um... hello?  No.  I mean, if you can manage to have a happy day in spite of full knowledge of what this holiday actually represents, then congratulations.  I imagine that most people don't even bother to think about it, though.  Far too depressing a topic, especially if you have a day off from work like I do, right?  Right.  Pathetic, if you ask me, but nobody's askin' me except me.  It's all good, though.  I keep asking myself questions and keep finding answers and expressing that shit through mediums like these.  You oughta give that a try sometime.  So yeah, Memorial Day.  A day that commemorates (or at least, it's supposed to) commemorates the massive losses of life of men and women who've died in service to this country.

I, however, would like to expand the holiday's commemoration to include loss of human life everywhere, not just American life.  It's really sad that anyone anywhere still feels any need to engage in wars.  When you realize that it's all because one side believes differently (or has different ideas) than the other side, you start wondering why the fuck people can't just sit down and chat in an effort to reach some sort of understanding.  What I think is that when these world leaders have some stupid fuckin' disagreement, put them in a rowboat in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by a naval blockade, and give 'em two swords.  Either they'll talk it out with words, or they'll reach for their swords and fuckin' kill each other.  Either way, it's not the fuckin' end of the world.  Plenty of different leaders have come and gone and we as people have managed to keep going.  I'd even venture to ask why we need leaders at all, but I'm aware of how much people abuse their freedom.

I suppose it's just a matter of convenience.  Abusing your freedom, sticking your head in the sand, is really easy when you live a comfortable life.  But shit's happening every day that involves you whether you realize it or like it or not.  Ignorance is a luxury that fewer and fewer people can afford.  I suggest you start paying attention before this shit ends up knocking on your front door.  But you know, do what you want.  Just a suggestion.  Without any further ado, enjoy the Memorial Day Edition of Monday Morning Aural Sex!

And don't forget to check out the links I've provided here to see some of the music videos! Especially the one for Blue Scholars - Back Home.  That one made me tear up.  But yeah, I spend a lot of time gathering those fuckin' things, and it'd be nice to know someone appreciates it, dammit!  :-P
