MARXIST LENNONIST!

I am joining the ultimate apolitical party.
An all night party that more accurately acknowledges the absudity of the human condition.
A party of fellow pie-in-the-skyers who are so sick of all the bullsh*t.
A colour blind nationless collective of free-ish spirits guided by common sense and personal accountability.
We have absofrickinlutely zero chance of ever winning..
but we will have a great time trying!


"Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...well, I have others!""
GROUCHO MARX

"Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans"
JOHN LENNON

Have a great weekend,
I leave you with our global anthem,
because nobody has ever said it better.....

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
(I have no problem with that)

Imagine all the people
Living for today...
(but don't ignore history)

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
(why not, we tried everything else)

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace..
(not really, but I'd like to)

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one
(dreams are a wish that your heart makes)

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
(OK there are a few things that I would need to keep)

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
(All he was saying was give Peace a chance!)

  1. Uhh...where IS Canada anyway?

    Hockey? What's that?

    And notice today that the Americans' women's team lost to Sweden — yes, Sweden, the land of vikings and a people whose last names all end in "sson!"

    And what's a prime minister? Oh yeah...the guy who kisses dubya's ass. Harper, who as pointed out is the man wearing grey pajamas, will be in office for about how long...six months?

    Joe who? How about Harper who? Better get that hot line going to Preston Manning in Calgary...or would it be Ralph Klein?

    Homo, your posts are bitingly insightful and funny and true for those smart enough to get them and who don't try to "escapeon" from the reality.

    Keep it up!!!

    And I'm with Marx!!!

  2. The perplexing retort above is from an earlier incarnation of this post when blawgwatcher was a going concern.
    To be perfectly honest I think that this reply was on a different posting altogether..or else blawgwatcher was tipping a few when he wrote this.
    He has since calmed down and evolved into ...as if you can't figure it out...
    well I'll let him OUT himself.

  6. Sign me up...

    Imagine is a song you can never hear too many times, the lyrics are as important today as when they were writen...

    The other song which has the same effect is punk rock song by bad religion.

    "One in five kids below the poverty line, one population running out of time.
    This is just a punk rock song, writen for the people who can see somethings wrong."

  8. I'll join the party.

    Lets hold our meetings outside Parliment each Friday night. We'll get drunk and discuss ideas, and keep drinking until the police send us on our way. It'll be the greatest party in Ottawa, and it'll only spread in popularity from there. Eventually everyone will be members of the party, and we will gain power, and then...I don't know.

  9. Funny you should choose that song... I find myself singing it everytime things seem hopeless on this damn planet where everything is topsy turvy and nothing seems to make any sense!

    Oh to Imagine! If only...

  10. Guess I'll be the equivalent of a Trotskyite wrecker here . . . .

    HEY! WHAY DIDN'T YOU PICK 'HOORAY FOR CAPTAIN SPAULDING' AS OUR ANTHEM?

    Okay, got that out of my system. I'll be taking a trip to Mexico City this week if you're looking for me >B^D>

  11. I'll be your campaign manager if you'll let me join you on the hustings.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sounds like you definitely have a following, but I'd better be your communications adviser.

    And I wonder if Cherry Pie might be a bit of a distraction out on the hustings, or is that hustlings.

    If the world had half a sense of humor and insight, I'm convinced you would be a candidate to lead it.

    Otherwise, though, I think you might best be suited to Leader of the Opposition.

    Someone's got to be in charge of keeping the arseholes -- like Dubya, Blair, Harper and that stupid lot -- honest.

    And if anyone is qualified to do that, and make the population laugh at the same time, it's you.

  13. andrea,
    Done. You can be treasurer..we need some Beer money so try to get $10 from every person...tell them its an intimidation fee or something.....

    cream,
    Done. You are in charge of snacks..I supposed that we'll need a healthy snack for all of the veggies but the rest of us need Salt and Sugar and lots of it....

    christine,
    Get back here..you are in charge of ideology..hope you can ideolomogise or whatever you call it....

    angel,
    Since you are already hallucinating you can be in charge of music...hold on a minute...

    adidan,
    Oops..

    angel, aidan seems to know a lot about music so you need to give us all some of whatever is making you hallucinate.. ...

    aidan,
    you are still in charge of music..let them have some folksy stuff in the beginning but I want people jumping off the furniture by around 11pm!

    michael,
    you are our events coordinator so try to dream up a couple of protest marchs (thu/fri/sat/sun) that will always start at a pub and maybe bingo on mondays and a movie on tuesdays...wed is laundry day...

    stegasaurusblogger,
    you are in charge of assembling mass quantities of designer cologne and $200 a pair jeans so that we all look and smell good at the protest marchs!

    miz bohemia,
    I need you to map out a strategy for taking over the world using only ordinary household items and plenty of moxy...leave Spain immediately we need you now...

    perspective,
    somebody has to make thousands of decisions on various motions that will be tabled so maybe you could just go ahead and pass them all ahead of schedule so that we will have more time to bowl and go to movies..

    fronty,
    OK ..one week..if you bring back tons of Corona, Tequila and Mescale...and Salma Hayek...

    cherry pie,
    Absolutely, not only can you join me on the platform but we can perform magic tricks together..I'll saw you in half..oooh that will be sooooo cool for the...

    no wait you are a lawyer so you have to be legal affairs..I want you to commence extracting huge amounts of cash from evil(and not so evil)corporations ..

    ...we need a lot of cash to pay for all of the stuff that I just ordered.

  14. Since I'm trying to be a wrecker, can I be the one riding from front to front in the armored train and exacting iron discipline over the party (which will consist of poking someone in the ribs and telling them to go get another keg)?

    Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh?

  15. der KEGmeister!,
    Oh al-right...
    just don't forget Salma

  16. Hoh Mah Gawd I've missed the party. =P

    Well, considering I was spreadin the lurrrrve at a different one then you should forgive that. Plus, well, there was too much to drink.

    I can be the "arranger." I get to hold the whip. YeeHa!

    ReplyDelete
  17. tidalgrrrl,

    Crack that whip
    Give the past the slip
    Step on a crack
    Break your momma's back

    When a problem comes along
    You must whip it
    Before the cream sits out too long
    You must whip it
    When something's going wrong
    You must whip it

    now whip it
    into shape
    shape it up
    get straight
    go forward
    move ahead
    try to detect it
    it's not too late
    to whip it
    whip it good

    When a good time turns around
    You must whip it
    You will never live it down
    Unless you whip it
    No one gets their way
    Until they whip it

    I say whip it
    Whip it good

  18. You have to imagine it first before it can become reality. So imagining sounds like a good first step in the right... I mean left... I mean... you know... direction.

  22. I've never been to an all night party - is it over or am I still in time?

    I could do something interesting with bunting

  23. Ziggi, you'd better clarify or rephrase that given the bunch of reprobates you're dealing with here >B^D>

  24. i will be stealing your meme, in case i failed to mention that before.

    excellent post.
    and in a human interest aside, you may recall from mj's place, john and groucho are the names by which my own personal 'kremin west' is known.

    ReplyDelete
  25. naked nerd,
    Alright you can dream up some killer slogans for our placards..

    ziggi,
    This party never ends..and there is no bunting! We need Homers!

    Fronty,
    Now, now, this is the creme de la creme of the blogosphere and there is no shame in reprobating, everybody reprobates once and a while...sheesh.

    First Nations,
    I saw your version and it is fabulous! I will have to investigate your 'kremin west'..
    I should have guessed that you were way ahead of the curve on this one.

  26. woah, no more posting drunk for me! ha! I read that and went...uh, what?

    It only speaks well of my friends' brewing ability that I was so tanked, yet I was able to surf the web?

    Hmmm...

  28. within, without,
    which is it?

    Hey where is my acceptance speech regarding your proposal???

    Of course you can be my Communicable Diseases Adviser. With your experience I can think of nobody else better suited for this position.
