Gramps Is Getting Pissed!

Horrid History

Oct 22, 1844 - Jesus Christ fails to appear to the Seventh Day Adventists, led by Bible scientist William Miller. The Millerites were expecting the End Times to accompany the appearance of the Savior, so that didn't happen either.

Oct 22, 1934 - Notorious bank robber Pretty Boy Floyd dies of multiple gunshot wounds in the back, after a shootout with the FBI at the Conkle Farm in East Liverpool, Ohio.

Oct 22, 1976 - Red dye #4 is banned by the US Food and Drug Administration, because it causes tumors in the bladders of dogs. The dye is still used in Canada. The ban wreaks havoc with the M&M supply.

Watch Out! Gramps is Getting Pissed!

Well, if "A" is for Apple and Anti-war protests, it only follows that "B" must be for Burt Bacharach. Yes, Burt Bacharach, known to millions for writing such croons as Walk On By, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, I'll Never Fall in Love Again, and of course the wildly popular Turkey Lurkey Time, has gone political on his newest album release, At This Time.

The 77 year old composer is quoted as saying,
"You could say 'how does a guy who has written love songs his entire life suddenly decide to rock the boat? I thought that was very important because I couldn't have somebody else write these lyrics."

He added: "I never was a political person in my life. I wrote songs during Vietnam, not about Vietnam. I was just writing love songs. Leading my own life in my own insulated world."

Some of the guests on his new album include the likes of Elvis Costello, Rufus Wainwright, and even rap artist Dr. Dre throws in some drum loops to finish it off.

"I had to do it. This is very personal to me,"he said. And we, here at the Cheshire's Blog, bet that it is. After being an icon of the swinging sixties, winning three Oscars and six Grammys, the only thing left to do in this world of Love, Sweet Love is to start hanging out with Michael Moore and carrying signs demanding the immediate impeachment of President Bush.

Possibly the most political of all the lyrics on At This Time are from a song entitled Who Are These People? which include lyrics displaying Iraqi war disillusionment, such as: "Who are these people who keep telling us lies and how did these people get control of our lives and who'll stop the violence 'cause it's out of control? Make 'em stop!"

So, I say kudos to the old croonster for finally standing up and giving a voice to the geriatric crowd, who has been horribly screwed over by the Bush administration by way of negating their abilities to claim medical bankruptcy and all but completely doing away with Medicaid programs. Watch out Bush and Cheney, Burt Bacarach says no more Mr. Nice Guy. At This Time, grampa's gonna start kickin some ass around here, and it ain't gonna be pretty!
