Cheryl Wheeler & The Lord of Darkness

Amy and I went to the Cheryl Wheeler show at the Iron Horse in Northampton the other night. It was a full house and we shared a table with an icy Yuppie Couple From Pluto who were obviously too good for the likes of us, and were sandwiched in next to a large table of drunk, rowdy, middle-aged lesbians. Unfortunately they didn’t have room for us to join them.

Cheryl Wheeler, who is a very funny performer, said that she has thought about doing political songs, but whenever she sits down to write something about the current Administration she gives up because she gets stuck on-

FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!
FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!
FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!
FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!
FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!
FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!
FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!
FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!
FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!
FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!FUCKYOU!


I dunno... it’s got a nice beat and I’ll bet you could dance to it.

I just made the mistake of looking at today’s news headlines-

The Lord of Darkness, aka “Vice”, is over in the Middle East, plotting with our “friends” the Saudis to find new ways to screw America, Paula Abdul got a bad manicure that has temporarily sidelined her from American Idle, Fox canceled ‘Malcolm in the Middle’, and William Shatner just sold a kidney stone he passed last fall for $25,000.

Is it bedtime yet?

I'll have to give that song a 10 for content.

You know the universe is badly out of alignment when Paula Abdul can't get a good manicure. My God, what has this world come to?
