Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

G’morning, GN!

Can I be included in the liner notes?

Well, Paddy…you can be included in some sort of liner. ๐Ÿ˜‰

(Criminy that’s a dreadful tune earworm; gaaaaaaaaaaah!)

============

I’ve come to loathe MLK Day thanks to all of the scum-sucking, bottom-feeding racialist scoundrels who have perverted every value Dr. King represented for the past fifty years.

I have a dream: I’d love to see MLK arise from his grave to bitch-slap the ever-loving shยกt out of all who have done so…starting with most of his own family, the Revs. Jesse and Al and the entire Congressional Black Caucus.

Good morning and happy MLK day or whatever it is called. Mrs Sven has it off--me, not so much.

Your dream, Fatwa, would make for an interesting movie.

Heh.

Tagline: “Dr. Martin Luther King is back…and this time, he’s PISSED!” (Imagine that line delivered by the late, great Don LaFontaine.)

We could add a righteously honked-off post-Nation of Islam Malcolm X and make it a buddy movie. I’m sure that getting funding in Hollywood will be no problem whatsoever; it’s the perfect “elevator pitch”.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning Sven and Fatwa!
Fatwa -- I lurv your MLK movie idea. An additional tagline for ads and posters: “His dream has become your worst nightmare!”
It would be a hit and all the liberals in Hollywood who funded it would be screaming raaaaaaacist! all the way to the bank.

Oooooh…like your tagline, ‘cept I think “their worst nightmare” might be more appropriate.

Fatwa -- here’s another song that could use your horn treatment:

No need to thank me.

No need to thank me.

And so I shan’t. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Trust me…horrors abound on my list of potential tunes for the new band. (And I still need to do two more ballads!) The catch is that I need to do something with each of them which renders them non-cringe-worthy to me. And hopefully others, of course.

I was pleased that my L.A. band trumpet player and harsh critic friend who now lives in GA -- and will be playing lead in teh new project -- deemed “Sugar Sugar” to be “droll and funky”. (Which, let’s face it, is the only way that song could work for the new band.)

What’s funny about Fatwa’s MLK movie pitch is that if you replaced MLK with any other dead guy, Washington, Lincoln, Patton, FDR, whoever, returning from the dead, you could probably get away with it. MLK? Unless Spike Lee did it, the cries of racism would ring out across the nation.

Spike Lee or Steve McQueen (the one who directed “12 Years A Slave”) would have to do it; otherwise, reanimating black leaders would be racist. Because slavery.

I suppose it could be modified to a nettled, bitingly sarcastic, wise-cracking Ben Franklin and, maybe, Thomas Jefferson. Not quite as edgy, but one could still get certain points across.

I sort of like the idea of ol’ Ben saying something snarky as he knees a member of Congress; that could be a running gag. ๐Ÿ˜‰
