Moscow Turtle Tuesday


This week: “Moscow Mitch” by Ben Folds (Ben Folds, 2019)

Why we’re into it: Do we really need to explain ourselves here?

During a concert in New York City Thursday night, Kesha collaborator Ben Folds debuted the unrivaled song of the summer: “Moscow Mitch”—a nickname given to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell due to his role in blocking election security legislation last week.

Performing on the roof of Pier 17, the former Ben Folds Five frontrunner paused his concert to address the audience: “What I want to do is put a little cool stutter in it, like, you know, ‘My-my-my-my-my-my Sharona.’ So what we’ll do is, we’ll go: Mah-mah-mah-Moscow Mitch. That’s it, okay?” While the song is mostly instrumental—save for two verses of Folds and the crowd yelling, “Mah-mah-mah-Moscow Mitch!” followed by a few laughs from the audience—it’s an undeniable banger.

    “right away” has had no effect.

    “Some is not a number; soon is not a time.”

    The 2003 European heat wave led to the hottest summer on record in Europe since at least 1540. France was hit especially hard. The heat wave led to health crises in several countries and combined with drought to create a crop shortfall in parts of Southern Europe.

    Peer-reviewed analysis places the European death toll at more than 70,000.

    The Avanti Den posted yesterday is not quite like ours was. Studebaker only made it two years, 1963/1964. The one in the picture is either a 1963 or from the company who bought the rights, dye rights? to the car, started making it and plopped a Corvette engine in it. They also dropped the glasspacks.

    Our Avanti was candy apple red, a darker red than on Den’s picture. Ours also looked like it was on a “rake,” or the rear end was higher than the front.

    Of all the times in our life to not take a picture of one of our cars, we never took a picture of our Avanti. I’m still kicking myself.

    Via a detour, 36 minutes to the Zoe Coffee & Kitchen. The owners bought the Cougar County Drivein for about half price so it will reopen soon.

      Thence to Reaney Park, total 50 minutes, for a little event. Home via the hill from Reaney Park up to Spokane Street, noticeable.

      Day 3: 135+86=221 minutes.
