Can’t you hear the Kum Ba Ya?


From the last church flower festival we went to — possibly the last one of the year. We are down at the short end of the season now.

I feel a little cruel running with this one. These ladies were, after all, just making a joyful noise (and doing a respectable job of it, on the whole).

Only…aren’t they precious?

I’m curious about the one who is “manspreading”. Has LBGT acceptance arrived in Kent unannounced?

Oh, and does this mean I am going to hell?

Ah, she’s just gettin’ properly braced-up for those occasional *reeely-high* notes…

Tho, the Sweet Young Thing in the white trou seems to be sorta lining-up to make a quick getaway-move, should one of those high, hard ones rip entirely loose and come after ‘er.

A Goodly Group, no doubt…I can almost hear the hum ‘n buzz originating from that YammerHammer’s keyboard inside my head right now.

One has to wonder if frumpy old white ladies playing tunes from the days of imperialistic hegemony and colonialism will be allowed for much longer. I’m certain they are doing something problematic.

Mocking them is the only appropriate response to their white privilege and furtherance of gendered music archetypes (I have no idea what I’m saying here) and inherent approval of the patriarchicality of religion.

Be very, very careful Stoatie… Everybody knows that what a band with only two recorders, a guitar, and a keyboard absolutely needs is….a… Banjo Player

Um, it doesn’t actually appear to be a *joyful* noise, does it?

Three LOL’s in one thread. My Dad is looking at me as if I’m crazy.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
