I want you to all to see one of the protests in the heart of Chicago. This video doesn’t even cover it. This group started off as 200 people. Two hours later they have covered and stopped Congress and are moving to State Street. Two major roads of the city.
The first person to say that this needs more cowbell gets extirpated.
Anyway! I have a personal and cultural imperative to put the most effort into the things that mean the least, and so here is this bit of yiddishkeit, hot and ready for yom kippur regretting. The lyrics are worth paying attention to - it’s the victim-blamiest folk song of them all!
When I said to my roommates “hey, let’s shoot a video of me singing an old yiddish folk song this weekend”, they didn’t say “what”, or “no”, which is why my household will flourish for always. Also @nakedbee randomly showed up from the other side of the country, in that way she has.
