Greetings everyone! Another Monday is here, and with it comes a chance to mambo. Today's theme is Cigar Day, but I don't know how that applies to music. I'll just ask some random questions.
1. What's your favorite movie about music?
Currently, it's Grateful Dawg, a documentary about the bluegrass partnership of Dave Grisman and Jerry Garcia (RIP). I'm also really partial to Amadeus.
2. What's your favorite music concert video?
3. What do you pay more attention to in a song: the music or the lyrics?
While I find lyrics more important, it would just be bad poetry if it weren't for the music.
4. Here's a serious question involving a touchy situation. You've won a backstage pass to meet your favorite band! You go there after the show, very excited to meet everyone. When you arrive, you see some of the band members doing something illegal (drugs, weapons, etc.). After you've greeted the band, had them sign autographs, etc., do you tell anyone what you saw? Or do you keep quiet because you're sure they do this kind of thing all the time and it's no big deal?
Serious questions demand serious answers... so I'll hem and haw a bit, equivocating however much I can. How's that sound?
The answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind... it depends. And I don't mean adult diapers, unless that's what I catch them at (“Ewww, bad boy! Stinky diaper! Daddy will spank!” -- but I digress). Drugs? It's a crime against self and one which destroys the lives of millions. I am constantly saddened that so many derive so little for the momentary rush of so few. But, I'm not likely to bust them for doing a line after a concert – that's their life they're fucking up. However, if I find a half a key of 100% cocaine open on the table and band members' children and guests milling about, someone is taking a ride down to visit the city magistrate, catch my drift?
I have little tolerance for celebrity creeps mucking about with weapons and will bust them in a heartbeat. No qualms about it. Illegal sex? Same response. There's nothing cute about an adult molesting children, no matter how willing the molestee may be.
There. Serious enough?
Y'all have a good day and avoid those nasty social conundrums if you can. Otherwise, wear a dental dam and be careful where you put that tongue while kissing ass...
The rules are, there are no rules!!! All you need to do is copy and paste the above questions into your blog and add your responses. After you've finished, return here and leave us a comment so we'll know you've Mamboed. Be sure your Mambo is linked back to http://bdinsanity.blogdrive.com so others can dance too.
Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. If one of the questions doesn't inspire you then simply "pass" it. Just use your imagination and dance like crazy!
If you don't have a blog or you're an exhibitionist *woo hoo* feel free to Mambo right here in our comments section. There's absolutely no pressure ... although it's called the Monday Music Mambo you can Mambo on any day.
Until next time, this is your music-lovin' Mememeister saying have a good Monday and a good Mambo!
