    I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I haven’t liked your posts since about this time yesterday. I haven’t liked them, not because I haven’t liked them, but because I haven’t been able to Like them. All I get where one normally clicks “Like” is “Loading” — and as much as I’d like it to stop Loading, it doesn’t. I can still comment, but if I commented on all the posts I like but can’t Like, I’d spend my whole day writing comments….which isn’t likely, because I also like to eat, sleep, and be merry. So, since I can’t Like you on your posts, I’ll LIKE you musically here.

    Speaking of being merry, today is the birthday (May 21, 1904) of Thomas “Fats” Waller, who was about the merry-makingest singer/songwriter/pianist I know. Here he at the piano with such fellow jazz greats as Jack Teagarden and Gene Krupa playing his own composition I NEED SOMEONE LIKE YOU:

    There’s more “Like” songs where that came from. Here is the First Lady of Song/Queen of Jazz singing a ballad like only she can:

    I’d like to close with something high class, like this:

      I get that ‘interminable loading’ problem with the ‘like’ thingy myself, sometimes. It usually goes away when I reload the page.

        Thanks. I can’t solve the problem come hell or high water, but then I’m in the same boat re most things technological. Hopefully, I can enlist one of my two tech-savvy daughters to help.

        I have that problem too, though not on every page. If I use the Reader page then usually I can hit the ‘like’ and that works.

          Thank you. I was hoping to get help from my two daughters, but at this time, neither can give me ‘hands-on’ assistance for reasons beyond their control (illness in one case, lives out of town in the other). One tells me that the Reader page (which I never heard of) is too complicated for someone of my all-but-non-existent tech skills….which is undoubtedly true. Such is life in the big city, as they say.

        Dear mistermuse and Colin,

        Since this is probably due to caching issue (a cache is a temporary memory), close the tab or window and reload the post in a new tab or window.

        If this does not solve the issue, then quit and restart your web browser.

        By the way, mistermuse, thank you for submitting your one-word comment “Like” at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2020/04/12/the-last-rag/

        Therefore, I would like to encourage you to submit another comment there with proper sentences so that I have something much more substantial to reply to.

        Please make sure that you are viewing my blog posts on a desktop or laptop computer because you will see and experience much more of the sophisticated features. Happy reading and happy listening there!

          The short answer to your suggestion that I submit a longer comment to your post is that I’m simply unable to submit time-consuming replies to anywhere near the number of posts of the many blogs I follow as I would like to….nor do I expect such comments from any of my followers who don’t have time (which is not to say that I don’t appreciate thoughtful comments when possible). Hence, I use “Like” as a better-than-nothing substitute.

        If you still have the issue after restarting your web browser, then restart your computer.

        If the issue persists after restarting your computer, then you will need to (partially) delete the cache history stored in your web browser.

        Alternatively, use a different web browser.

      ‘Like’ – the most over-used word in the dictionary. I am a CBC junkie and nothing makes me sprint for the ‘off’ button any quicker than a person who’s being interviewed using that word at least three times in a sentence. You’ve probably heard them. . “Like, I used to be more introverted, but like I’m older now and like I just feel like talking to, like, more people. . ., you know what I mean?”
      But go ahead, ‘Like’ away! 😉 (at least, you can try!)

        Thanks for the tip, cd, but I’m not sure what you mean, because there’s no Like button (immediately following a post) to click — even on this post, I see only “Loading” where the Like button used to appear on all my posts in the past.

        P.S. I just checked a few of my previous posts, and “Loading” now appears in place of Like on all of them. Something is definitely screwed up.

I’ve now discovered that, although I get “Loading” on my computer, when I bring up my blog on my wife’s computer, the “Likes” on my posts are there (and she doesn’t even use WordPress). This suggests to me that the problem is either with WordPress or that Windows on my computer needs to be upgraded.

          I see that a new WordPress Editor is going to replace the old one on June 1. If that doesn’t correct the problem, I’ll ask my tech-savvy oldest daughter about upgrading Windows the next time she visits from out of town.

    In my April Fools’ Day post, I noted that April is NATIONAL HUMOR MONTH. As a poet of sorts, wouldn’t it be funny if April also happened to be NATIONAL POETRY MONTH?

    Well, as you might guess,
    it turns out that, yes,
    that is the case….
    and this is the place
    where poetry and funny
    join together as oney
    until death do them party
    or are doomed from the starty
    by comic rigor mortis
    or a poet out of sortis.

    Oui, mon ami — this is going to be a post which joins zee art of zee poet with zee art of zee comic, and if you don’t like zee combinaison, you can lump eet. What’s more, I’ll do more such posts, zee likes of which will have you begging for merci. So if you know what’s not good for you, you’ll take eet and like eet….or take eet and fake eet. I’m not particular. (I’m also not hungry — I think I eet too much.)

    Understand, I’m not one of those poets who doesn’t understand what he has written, but somehow expects zee reader to. Non, mon ami, I understand perfectly what I have written. It’s YOU who I expect hasn’t a clue. Why is that true? I have no clue. And, frankly my dear, I don’t give a fous (pardon my French).

    Unfortunately, I see that my allotted time for this post is almost up, so zee funny poems I was going to publish here must wait until next time, for which I apologize. Thank you for your very kind attention….or, as zee Hoosier Hot Shots more etiquettely and poetically put it:

    My next guest in this series is a bunch
    of 1930s musicians* who had a hunch
    that most orchestras of that time
    played less than lofty and sublime
    so they formed a band whose bliss was
    to fashion high-class music such as this was:

        Don, they were very popular in the 1930s-40s, not only because they were talented (even though they made it look like they were just having fun), but because their appeal was multi-genre (country, western swing, hot jazz, and pop). As for their Indiana roots, this song was one of their biggest hits:

    Believe it or not, I have standards — which I have made the standard for S (Part II). One of the all-time great standards of America’s Golden Age of popular music is STELLA BY STARLIGHT, composed by Victor Young for the 1944 film THE UNINVITED.  I invite you to be my guest for this good-as-it-gets rendition by the man known as “Mr. B”….

    By most standards, the obscure tune which follows isn’t considered a standard….but when it’s by Cole Porter, almost any song (in my considered opinion) qualifies:

    Our next S song has had more lives than a cat named Susie. It was first recorded by Eddie Cantor on 4/6/1925 and became a bestseller. It was subsequently sung by an actor who played Cantor in THE GREAT ZIEGFELD (1936), by two guys named Gene & Frank in ANCHORS AWEIGH (1945), and again by Cantor in the films IF YOU KNEW SUSIE (1948) and THE EDDIE CANTOR STORY (1953)….not to mention other vintage recordings and performances. The clip below is from (guess which) one of the above:

    We close with a song which may be too highbrow for some of you, but a little taste of class is surely worth the risk of a black eye to your reputation (such as it is — ha ha):

        When Stella By Starlight first appeared in the 1944 film THE UNINVITED, it was only an instrumental. In 1946 lyricist Ned Washington added words to the melody composed by Victor Young, and (as the old saying goes) the rest is history.

    You are what you eat. –Dr. Victor Lindlahr, nutritionist (1897-1969)

    Pun aside, a lot of whater has passed under the bridge since Dr. Lindlahr coined the above phrase 75+ years ago, and the older I get, the more I’ve taken his caution to heart….with resulting good health to show for it (if I should drop dead tomorrow, I shall reluctantly admit I came to that conclusion a bit prematurely).

    But I have also come to see a parallel to this axiom in the public sector: it’s no accident that we have political dysfunction. We are who we elect. Our elected (and wanna-be elected) officials aren’t anomalies who have somehow passed under voters’ attention spans, leaving us to wonder how such coarse incivility found its way into the political mainstream. Well, wonder no more:


    Obviously, then, eatin’ and politickin’ have a lot in common. As with our intellectual standards, if our table manners go down the drain, we regress into uncivilized louts. To combat this uncouth scourge, we must remember our etiquette. Politicians need to model their behavior after the culinary refinement of the epicure:

    Therefore, let us get back to the good old days when politicians may have been idiots, but at least they weren’t tasteless idiots with little sense of propriety. Take these examples:

    It’s time to put our blood or our urine where our mouth is. — Rep. Pat Murphy (D-IA) on drug testing, Feb. 1997

    We have brave men and women who are willing to step forward because they know what’s at stake. They’re willing to sacrifice their lives for this great country. What I’m asking all of you tonight is not to put on a uniform. Put on a [Rick Santorum] bumper sticker. Is it that much to ask? Is it that much to ask to step up and serve your country? –Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA), Jan. 2006

    My problem was, I was too honest with you the first time. –Rep. Tillie Fowler (R-FL), explaining to her constituents why she changed positions.

    The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, antifamily political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, , kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians. –Pat Robertson, 1992 fund raising letter

    They intend to vote on the Sabbath, during Lent, to take away the liberty that we have right from God. This is an affront to God. –Rep. Steve King (R-IA)

    Please burn before reading. –1972 Nixon White House illegal campaign tactics memo

    My friends, no matter how rough the road may be, we can and we will never, never surrender to what is right. –Dan Quayle, Vice President under George H.W. Bush

    I don’t think we came from monkeys. I think that’s ridiculous. I haven’t seen a half-monkey, half-person yet. –Glenn Beck (who apparently hadn’t looked in the mirror lately)

    OK, Pat Robertson and Glenn Beck aren’t politicians. Hey, nobody’s perfect. Well, maybe Sarah Palin is, but we don’t have time to do her justice, so I’ll close with this reminder:

      I love this quote by Alexander Tyler (or whomever, as I’ve seen speculation he said it. However, it is an awesome quote! )
      The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

      From bondage to spiritual faith;
      From spiritual faith to great courage;
      From courage to liberty;
      From liberty to abundance;
      From abundance to complacency;
      From complacency to apathy;
      From apathy to dependence;
      From dependence back into bondage

        The patriotic concept of “American Exceptionalism” may have its appeal, but when it’s an OVER-patriotic concept, I fear it’s leading America down the path of the sequence you outline.

        P.S. To those who read this post prior to a half hour ago, I apologize for the confusing link which followed the first two paragraphs (due to my technological incompetence). The wumo cartoon which appears there now is the correct link.

      Let us hope it passes before blindness makes America unable to see what we’re eating, election-wise!

      I got very side-tracked here—enjoyably so—with more videos of the Hoosier Hot Shots….”From the Indies to the Andes in His Undies,”…etc. Thanks for the introduction!

      Leave it to Pat Robertson to hit the nail right on the head–it’s the girls that are going to do all the heavy lifting, as usual.

      Cynthia, I must confess a weakness for the Hoosier Hot Shots (I own dozens of their old 78s), which I guess proves that appreciation of wit and “cornball humor” can co-exist in one package. Now if only conservatives and progressives could learn to co-exist cooperatively in one country! 😩

      Ricardo, it’s not too late to send Pat Robertson (born March 22, 1930) a belated Happy Birthday card to show your appreciation for all he’s done to keep this country from going to the dogs (so it can go to the troglodytes instead).

        Some say that’s Trump’s real hair, but in any case, I’m far more concerned about what’s in his head, not on top of it. Speaking of questioning what’s real, Robertson, Beck and Limbaugh (not to mention Sarah Palin) must be cartoon characters — it’s hard to believe real people could be such buffoons (on second thought, maybe not so hard to believe).

      Great quotes, my favourite is of course Pat Robertson’s prognosis of what feminism entails, he he he!

      Note that Robertson’s “prognosis” was stated in a fund raising letter. As a man of God, he not only knows and proclaims God’s will, but knows how to reach into his followers’ pockets while doing it.

      There is one candidate and only one candidate who can explain to America that it is rough. And, if they don’t get it, she can explain that it is ruff, ruff. And, if they don’t get it, or don’t like it or her, she can always pee on their leg.



    • mistermuse 10:59 pm on March 30, 2016 Permalink | Reply

      Unfortunately, I haven’t heard a peep – or should I say, a ruff – out of Lucy Lou lately, Don (ever since fire destroyed the Rabbit Hash General Store). Apparently fearing a vast right paw conspiracy, the Secret Service is still insisting that she live indognito. I hear The Donald was asked to have “his people” look into it, but The Donald wasn’t biting, as he’d rather face Hillary in the election because he doesn’t think she would pee on his leg….plus, she’s very vulnerable as long as her pee-mails remain under investigation.

      Pee-mails? I love it. I might steal it.


    • mistermuse 7:26 pm on March 31, 2016 Permalink | Reply

      Hillary probably loves it too. If she can keep her pee-mails in the mainstream, investigators will find it hard to build a cut-and-dry case against her.

      I see that Trump just bounced ahead of Hillary in the post-GOP convention poll, which suggests to me that moron-ism is spreading outside of GOP circles. If Hillary doesn’t get a similar bounce after the Dem convention, she (and the country) could be in big trouble.
