Arlo and the Herd

For some reason this turned up today on my feeds.


Me, I’m going to enjoy another kind of musical feast tonight: the fabulous Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain.

Enthusiasmos with eight 4-string axes in the English Folk Song and Dance Society.

    This entry came up after a reference on NESTA, a review of HERD. It mention a reference ‘described by the Guardian as ‘Malcolm Gladwell on speed’’ which could be argue for galaxian days on the floor here at Camp One.
    Your reference to Arlo is, as well an interesting one and in that tone I give you the ultimate in ‘Herd’ potential from the Classic ‘Alice,s Restaurant’: [WARNING, ORIGINAL TEXT, NOT ADJUSTED FOR SENSITIVITY AWARENESS]
    ‘And friends, somewhere in Washington enshrined in some little folder, is a study in black and white of my fingerprints. And the only reason I’m singing you this song now is cause you may know somebody in a similar situation, or you may be in a similar situation, and if your in a situation like that there’s only one thing you can do and that’s walk into the shrink wherever you are ,just walk in say ‘Shrink, You can get anything you want, at Alice’s restaurant.’ And walk out. You know, if one person, just one person does it they may think he’s really sick and they won’t take him. And if two people, two people do it, in harmony, they may think they’re both faggots and they won’t take either of them. And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in singin a bar of Alice’s Restaurant and walking out. They may think it’s an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,I said fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Alice’s Restaurant and walking out. And friends they may thinks it’s a movement.’
