Not Friday, Not Funky - Listen Anyway!



The young musician who wrote and performs this song is a former student from the University where I work - pretty cool. It's also pretty cool to see so many younger people involved in the "Occupy" movements -- certainly none of the political parties seem to be invested in seeing that this upcoming generation has a level playing field to start their lives on. Or at least a field that isn't planted with ideological fodder that's corporate-sanctioned, genetically-modified, and barely digestible to those of us who can still think for ourselves. There is still some educating to be done, though, when too often it seems that half of the students on campus are willing to let themselves be walking billboards for the corporations that are, in one way or another, part of the problem.

  1. It may be that occupy Madison Ave and K Street should have been the place to start, they are after all the mind control arms of Wall Street.

  2. Excellent point by the Walking Man. We'd never have known we all needed Paris Hilton's purse without Madison Avenue. Occupy Paris Hilton.

  3. I keep hoping this is only the beginning and that the protests will gather such momentum that the politicians will have to acknowledge us a force to be reckoned with.

  4. nice post and wonderful insights in the comments. i am having a few remember whens back to my own undergraduate days. there's some thing wildly hopeful and satisfying about something that feels like a groundswell... i hope it is not illusory.
