Music Time! 5/5/16

19921004_004 Blair, Chris Quilty & Erick Graham

It’s Cinco de Mayo. You know what that means? It means a bunch of white people who for 364 days a year hate “illegals” are suddenly like “Viva La Mexico” and drinking margaritas and eating Mexican fare (or Tex Mex if they’re too fucking stupid to know the difference) at their local restaurant. Most of them think they’re celebrating Mexico’s Independence Day, but May 5th is not Mexico’s Independence Day. It’s not their version of our 4th of July. It’s a celebration of a single victory in a battle in a war they ultimately lost. But hey, keep on keeping on white folks!

So some random music before I go to bed…

I’m sitting on a conference call to activate a T1 in Florida. Mostly boring twiddling of thumbs waiting for others to get their work done so we can take the next step. So… music to pass the time by more quickly. I wonder how many songs I have with the word “work” in the title…
