Buddhists have a BIG ONE called Samsara : BOF .11

Written by on July 18, 2016

Buddhists have a BIG ONE called SAMSARA, this is metaphorically, metaphysically speaking … of course. This episode, originally streamcast on the 5th of April in the Gregorian year Two Thousand Sixteen, is another installment of my recurring concept Birds of a Feather, which is what the BOF in the title stands for. These shows feature set lists of songs bound by some kind of link, a connective tissue, a theme, a  ..  well I’m sure you’re getting the picture by now.Buddhists have a BIG ONE called SAMSARAmentioning the big one that Buddhists have now makes me immediately think of that catch phraseology from the brilliant animated show Archer.  Not that, that is in any way appropriate for this post or set list, but then again I have been including odd ramblings with my posts anyway .. so. Say that reminds me, on account of the doctor said there was something  Buddhists have a BIG ONE called SAMSARA wrong with my se- “But I’m just talking about Shaft.” and yes, we can dig it.

Regardless, back to my rant …
I would like to make it official that I can NOT STAND, the fourth of July holiday proceedings. Granted I am not a child who enjoys the idiocy of the bombastic celebration. Seen it, done it, it’s old hat. Buddhists have a BIG ONE called SAMSARA Once you’ve seen a few good, spectacular professional throwdowns, well you’ve seen a firework display. It can only get so good. Now my problem does not lie with the professional run events, but with the local idiots in the neighborhood who know good and well that police and fire are going to be far too stretched  Buddhists have a BIG ONE called SAMSARA on nights like these to do anything about them. They have their own “private” shows in your shared space of the street; or worse yet the closed end of the cul de sac you live on, and that’s the problem. They aren’t having their own personal firework display, dominated by large illegal fireworks that sound and feel (concussive force) like mortar rounds outside your window, in the “privacy” of their own space. They are conducting their  Buddhists have a BIG ONE called SAMSARA small shows in a manner in which they are infringing upon the sanctity and peace of your home. I’m getting steamed just typing about it.

And seeing how I mentioned that brilliant “cartoon” earlier, just because.
