Weekend Baroque

Saturday, November 6, 2010 \AM\.\Sat\.

As a part of my ongoing effort to revive reinforce the dominant Western Euro-centric clerical patriarchy paradigm, and of course, to ensure the triumph of Catholic fascism everywhere, here is some Baroque music for your weekend. This time I am not going with the big three (Vivaldi, Handel, Bach), but with some equally enjoyable composers.

1. Tomaso Albinoni – Concerto a cinque for strings in E minor, Op. 2 No. 4

2. Georg Phillipp Telemann – Concerto for Viola in G Major, TWV 51

3. Arcangelo Corelli – “La Folia” Violin Concerto in D Minor, Op. 5 No. 12

The video of the beginning of the post is of course a version of Ella Fitzgerald’s, a songstress of endless talent.

Here we have the original recording:

Racist Tea Party Elects Blacks, Indians and Latinos In A Sneaky Ploy

What other explanation could there be for this?

Why, it’s quite obvious that in an attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of the nation’s oppressed women and minorities, the racist and sexist Tea Party, along with the general swath of racist and sexist Republicans, elected two black conservatives to Congress, an Indian woman and a Mexican woman as governors, and a whole bunch of Latino guys to various offices. It is equally obvious that these misguided souls were duped by the cunning white man into becoming pawns for the perpetuation of the power and privileges of white Amerikkka.

Seriously.
