Birthday Party

I’ve finally settled on what I’m going to do for my 47th birthday.

I’m hosting a Zoom party for my friends.

We can social distance from home AND celebrate at the same time.

I’ve decided on a HAT theme for my birthday, since hats show up so well on zoom, and lord knows that my friends have MANY of them!

Even if it’s your favorite team’s baseball cap.

So wish me luck as I embark on the perilous journey of trying to book entertainment for my birthday.

I’m after my favorite bawdy songstress, the awesome Ms. Rachel Lark, to see if she can show up for my zoom and play a few of my favorite songs of hers.

Songs like The Unicorn Song:

And The World’s Really Fucked But This Show Will Be Pretty Good.

The IRONY in all this is that my birthday is THE DAY BEFORE ELECTION DAY.

So it’s possible the world will really be screwed, but this party will be pretty good.

Don’t miss it!

The World’s Really F*cked

Talk about introducing a little levity to the whole covid-19 pandemic.

Rachel Lark has come out with a new music video for her song “The World’s Really Fucked But This Show Will Be Pretty Good.”

Now first off, I have to say that I am a patron of Ms. Lark and I have been for months.

I love this bawdy but clever songstress, and so I pay a nominal fee every month to support her art.

In return, I’ve been able to attend Zoom gatherings where the talented Ms. Lark performs.

So I’ve heard her perform this song before.

I loved it then and I love it now.

I think her music video has captured the irony and humor of our situation perfectly.

I love the toilet paper thrones, the kid’s piano, and the insanely entertaining lyrics.

It’s also a pretty catchy tune.

So without further adieu, I give you Rachel Lark’s “The World’s Really Fucked But This Show Will Be Pretty Good” music video which is remarkably TOTALLY SAFE FOR WORK.

If you love it as much as I do, please share!

Rachel Lark

Today, something MAGICAL happened.

I got to watch Rachel Lark perform live from the comfort of my bed.

Indeed, she hosted a brunch livestream of her playing the ukulele and singing favorites like “Warm, Bloody and Tender,” “Picard” and “The Unicorn Song.”

I’m not sure I’ve said enough good things about the talented Ms. Lark.

I was first introduced to her music through my dear friend Dante who swore I would LOVE her and boy was he right.

I was lucky enough to see Rachel perform live at Burning Man at Dustfish in 2017 (I think).  I was with Tejas and Brad and they both looked a little sick when she sang “Warm, Bloody and Tender.”

Today, I made the leap and joined together with about 400 other people in supporting the wonderful Rachel Lark through her Patreon.

Yup.

So I’m just putting it out there, if you are looking for a good source of laughs, tears, and entertainment in isolation at home, consider supporting this lady right here who can help you out!

 

Bawdy Storytelling

I happen to love some musicians who skirt the edges of appropriateness with their music.

Have you ever heard of Richard Cheese?

He cracks me up.

He takes hits and sings them Lounge Singer Style.

Hits like Rape Me (by Nirvana), Me So Horny, and Only Happy When It Rains (by Garbage).

It’s like a comedy act and a musical performance rolled into one.

I also happen to like Garfunkel and Oates – a comedy-folk duo performing satirical songs about things like blowjobs and sex.

My sister has jokingly suggested that our family song be “The Loophole” – a song about anal sex.

Today I was introduced to Rachel Lark (by my friend Dante) who, in my humble opinion, is one of the greatest bawdy storytellers out there.

Her song “Warm, Bloody, and Tender,” is about a woman trying to have a tryst with a man while simultaneously hiding the face that she just got her period.

Genius!

Have we all been there ladies?

I think we have.

And the song “You Only Live Once (The Asshole Song)” is about a woman who is trying to convince her boyfriend to let her rim him.

OMG!

Not safe for work?

You bet.

But funny like a drag queen at a Monster truck rally.

Maybe I’m just warped that way, but I love me some inappropriateness and sexual innuendo.

The best part:  Rachel Lark is a burner and performed at Burning Man 2016 at Center Camp and Dustfish.  And I got to see her.

So take a moment, turn up your speakers, close your eyes and. . .

. . . enjoy at your own risk!

None of this is safe for work

I’m not entirely sure how I found out about bawdy storytelling.

It all started with Richard Cheese (aka Dick Cheese) who my sister introduced me to one day.

Admittedly, he is less bawdy and more lounge singer. . .

Then my fondness for inappropriate lyrics expanded with Rachel Lark.

I think it was my friend Dante who clued me in to the bawdy songstress.

I listened to her songs and laughed my ass off, listening to the graphic lyrics of ‘Warm, Bloody and Tender.’

And I was lucky enough to see her play at Dustfish at Burning Man.

I’m only too happy to share my love of bawdy storytelling with new friends I make.

And the other day, I got into a bawdy storytelling war with my new friend Nathan.

He saw me my Rachel Lark and raised me one Steven Lynch.

Have you heard his song about a gerbil?

Oh God!

You’ll blush but you’ll laugh.

I brought up Garfunkel and Oates.

Who hasn’t heard ‘The Blowjob Song’ or ‘The Loophole’?

Of course, none of these songs are appropriate and you must come back and listen to them when you’re in the privacy of your own home.

None of this is safe for work.
