Now, for all y’all Texans out there in Radio Land, this Man needs no introduction: The Once and Future Guv of Texas, Kinky Friedman and his Texas Jewboys Band:

and the Texan Army finally allowed Santa Anna and the Mexicans to catch up with them, the Texans waded into the sleeping Mexicans at San Jacinto, yelling, “Remember the Alamo! Remember Goliad!” while filleting Mexicans left and right with their bayonets. The panicked Mexicans tried to scramble away, screaming, “Me no Alamo, me no Goliad!” It has come to mean, “Hey, don’t blame me. I didn’t do it.”

    • I wish we would have elected him Governor. He would be more colorful than ‘Ma’ Ferguson!
      He is running for Land Commish I think.
      Damn! I miss Texas. (Need to git on home soon)
      Thanks for your visit Sadie.

    • I am putting my response here ‘cuz WP is stupid, and don’t show responses properly…
      Anyway, this response is in response to your last re: Willy, The Half-Sprung Shakes-Speare…(Sorry: Just some Bro Dave there–Google him–he did a grate, great version of “Jules Sees Her”) I am joking, of course.
      My third waif (wife) wrote her dissertation on Marlow. But she got hired as a Shakespearean at the local University. I met her in Brit Lit 404. (Shoulda known) Error!
      I love Shakespeare and although “Shakes – in- Love” got horrible reviews, I love the movie: it speaks to the ‘writer’ in us all.

      “I’m very sorry Sir. I have not read Act Two.”
      “Of course you have not; I have not yet written it.”

      • Shakespeare In Love got great reviews when it came out. It also won 7 Academy Awards in ’98, including Best Picture, Best Actress, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Best Supporting Actress for Dame Judi Dench.

      • Yes, I know it won Best Picture, et al, but it did get bad reviews as well. I love the movie and I think G. Paltrow is awesome. Dame Judi? are you kidding me? She is great in everything she does, from Henry V, to James Bond. She makes Britain. She is Britain.

      • Right, there are always critics who dislike movies. The Godfather got bad reviews from a few as did Godfather Pt 2 and Citizen Kane, and, believe it or not, I read a 1939 review of The Wizard of Oz recently that said Somewhere Over The Rainbow was the worst song he’d ever heard in a movie musical and would quickly be forgotten. However, Best picture awards usurp such reviews and illustrate that many film critics are fucking idiots lacking neuron activity in the higher cognitive parts of their brains.
