3 Chords & the Truth: Bad week, good show

So, I take a week off for our 38th wedding anniversary . . . and I come back to this?

It's been an awful, horrible, crappy week in these United States: COVID still raging, blockheads refusing to do anything to slow it down -- not even something as simple as wearing a stupid face mask -- our continuing bug-out from Afghanistan, punctuated by a horrific terrorist attack.

And an old acquaintance from high school (and present Facebook friend) died.

Then there's this monster hurricane getting ready to hit my home state, poor, woebegone Louisiana. 

Great week. Not. 

THAT LEAVES this episode of 3 Chords & the Truth  as the last chance for something to go right during this steaming, stinking pile of week.

I think the Big Show has, but I guess you're the final word on that, aren't you?

We persist, despite everything. 

In what's shaping up to be as bad a year as 2020, I suppose that's what counts as a victory. I pray that you're persisting, too. 

You do what you can do, and I'm doing what I can do. That's all anyone can ask. 

So, I think it's a fine show, and with luck, you will also. So here it is. Enjoy. 

It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

3 Chords & the Truth: It's classic

American insanity, like the classics, never goes out of style. 

So, when we have anti-masker anti-vaxxers screaming at -- and threatening -- doctors guilty only of wanting these morons not to get sick and die in the middle of a pandemic . . . well, the classic music you'll find on 3 Chords & the Truth matters all the more. 

I suppose you want to know why that is. 

It's like this: We all need a mental and emotional refuge when the stupidity and the tragedy and the suck . . . Just. Will. Not. End. There's only so much people can take, lots are reaching their limit, and you can't live in a world without beauty. 

You can't live without hope, either, and hope's shaky right now. So bring on the music. And the Big Show. And a bit of France, too.


It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.

3 Chords & the Truth: The lost world

It's a terrible thing to die of spite. 

The virus does not care about your "freedom," which now truly is "just another word for nothing left to lose." 

At least we still have memories of a lost world here on the Big Show. They will have to suffice, to bring us the balm of nostalgia in a world where we seem to prefer death over life . . . and science. Bile over balm. 

Mad promotional skillz for this episode, right? Trust me, this week's music is a lot better than my state of mind here in Plagueland. Crank it up. 

It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all.  Be there. Aloha.
