A backlog of Musical Interludes:
Tammy Wynette--"Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad"
After an early morning solidarity stand-out in front of the courthouse in Lowell, I went to my new favorite ye olde recorde shoppe and traded in a bunch of cd's that I had duplicates of. Although I personally felt that I was low-balled, I can't complain too much because I ended up getting:
Neu!--Neu! '86 which I listened to last night and it was pretty awesome, even with the occasional '80s new wave sounds; and
Moondog and His Honking Geese Playing Moondog's Music which I haven't listened to yet.
Finished the Marx bio despite my intentions of stopping much earlier.
Returned to the misadventures of Cija and her progeny which is going much slower than I anticipated, probably because I've already read it. They just got caught by Sedili, Zerd's first wife (of three).
Meanwhile, back in Yeatsland, The Lazy Beauty and Her Aunts

Reminds me of the kids in High School who thought Wuthering Heights was a love story.
When I first read Wuthering Heights, I had already read Camus's The Rebel [J-PS,IT: [Curses in French]] which has a chapter discussing Heathcliff. I must have misunderstood the point of the chapter, because I thought he was supposed to be the good guy and spent the first half of the book thinking "boy, he's a peculiar hero."
Was wondering why the youtube version is so different from my record, looked on allmusic.com and found the following:
"An important note: avoid at all costs the original U.S. vinyl issue on MCA, which not only switches the song order but removes a full third of the songs."
Monday Morning Jazz Brunch
Went out with La Principessa to return clothes in Manhattan on Saturday. She tricked me, as all women do, and after returning things at The Gap, Old Navy and some other place, she then dragged me into Victoria's Secret where she tried things on for forty minutes. Got my revenge when we passed by an olde usde recorde shoppe.
Picked up three only-have-previously-listened-to-on-the-internet-jazz-cds wicked cheap. I mean, seriously, they were all five bucks or less for items that would've been priced for ten bucks or more in any New England record shop I've ever been to.
Had a ton of amazing records, too, but I didn't want to risk them getting destroyed on the bus trip.

The first book by a native German communist was The Sacred History of Mankind, written by Moses Hess, who had picked up communist ideas after running away to Paris from his father's factory in Cologne.

Not quite the same but, since it's swearing-related:
Perhaps apocryphal, but, reportedly, when Mae West met Norman Mailer, she proclaimed "Oh, you’re the guy who can’t spell 'f##+'!"
Regardless, The Naked and the Dead did provide the filthiest beatnik/hippie rock band with their name.

La Principessa is planning on going to the Firefly event.
Probably safest place for her at ComiCon. Won't be tempted to run off to Canarsie.
