Open thread for Sunday, November 18th: Everyday is Like Sunday edition
Here is the open thread for Sunday, November 18th; please feel free to leave links to interesting articles as well as to discuss whatever issues may arise during the day. Nothing is off-topic here.
Now that the election is over, and partially due to a slowing response to the open threads, I have decided to cut down the open threads to one per week. I will be posting the open threads on Sunday for the time being, but who knows, they may pick back up again and if they do I will be more than happy to go back to two per week.
For today’s musical selection I chose Morrissey’s song entitled ‘Everyday is Like Sunday’ because, well, it is Sunday. Morrissey was the frontman for the ’80′s band ‘The Smiths’ until they broke up in 1987, shortly after I discovered them.
This was I believe the second single Morrissey released as a solo artist if I am not mistaken, ‘Suedehead’ being the first, and it was probably his biggest solo hit.
In this song Morrissey laments what he sees as the loss of the British seaside due to the influx of tourism and the commercialization of the area compared to the way he remembers it growing up. Today we are lamenting the loss of the America we knew growing up as the statists continue to gain control over the country and influence with the people with the intent of fundamentally changing the United States of America.
