Well, they did the pot-and-pan banging again tonight, so this evening's serenade was "The Fightin' Side of Me" and "Okie from Muskogee", then "The Envoy" by Warren Zevon, then "This Land is Your Land" off the Folkways tribute album, and finally "Surfin' USA". Tomorrow we're going to kick off with "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda" by the Pogues (in tribute to the Aussies and the Irish), then hear Gordon Lightfoot doing "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", and finish off by "Desolation Row" by Bob Dylan. After we hear those three long, depressing songs, there will be a pause of about one minute and then we will crank into Fear doing "I Don't Care About You". Should the cops show up, I have NWA's "Fuck tha Police" on hand, since if they come here because I'm soundblasting the block while there is rioting happening in other places, they've got their priorities all wrong.
