Fleetwood Mac- Over My Head (The Dance)

July 12, 2019 Leave a comment

You can take me to paradise
And then again, you can be cold as ice
I’m over my head (Over my head)
Oh, but it sure feels nice

You can take me anytime you like
I’ll be around if you think you might
Love me, baby (Over my head)
And hold me tight

Your mood is like a circus wheel
You’re changing all the time
Sometimes I can’t help but feel
That I’m wasting all of my time

Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Darwinism Has To Go

Mudcat Falls Masthead for WP - 500w

MUDCAT FALLS — A student group calling itself the Comintern of Liberals Against the Patriarchy gathered outside the Mudcat Falls Community College Biology Department demanding that the sciences be freed from domination by white European males.

“The evolutionary playing field needs to be leveled,” exclaimed CLAP Secretary General Rachel Sanger through a bullhorn to the crowd of nearly a dozen protesters. “I stand here today to draw the line in the dustbin of history and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny…equality today…equality tomorrow…equality forever.”

The students presented a petition signed by a consensus of Social Scientists, Women’s Studies Professors, and Planned Parenthood professionals calling upon the Administration to cleanse the Science Department syllabi from all references to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution on the basis that competence is an unfair measure for sustainability and merely a dog whistle to Trump Deplorables to justify the class-based discrimination of fascist billionaires.

The petition also called for the Louis Pasteur Biology building to be renamed Lysenko Hall.

“Can there be any clearer symbol of White Privilege,” said Sanger, “than naming a building after the man infamous for making milk pure?”

White privilege (or white skin privilege) is the societal privilege that in some countries benefits white people over non-white people, particularly if they are otherwise under the same social, political, or economic circumstances. Academic perspectives such as critical race theory and whiteness studies use the concept to analyze how racism and racialized societies affect the lives of white or white-skinned people.

“Based on the performance of their sports teams, I can understand their hard-on for competence,” said Pistol Creek University football headcoach Woody Lombardi, whose Bulllets have winning record of 112-0 over the Mudcat Falls Gourds.

MFCC Chancellor Wiley Latrans promised his administration would take CLAP’s petition under advisement.

Once upon a time not so long ago

Tommy used to work on the docks
Union’s been on strike
He’s down on his luck
It’s tough, so tough

Gina works the diner all day
Working for her man
She brings home her pay
For love, for love

She says, “We’ve gotta hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot
For love we’ll give it a shot.”

Whoa, we’re half-way there
Whoa, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it. I swear
Whoa, livin’ on a prayer

Tommy’s got his six string in hock
Now he’s holding in
What he used to make it talk
So tough, it’s tough

Gina dreams of running away
When she cries in the night
Tommy whispers
“Baby, it’s okay, someday

We’ve gotta hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot
For love we’ll give it a shot

Whoa, we’re half-way there
Whoa, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand and we’ll make it. I swear
Whoa, livin’ on a prayer

Livin’ on a prayer

We’ve gotta hold on ready or not
You live for the fight when it’s all that you’ve got

Whoa, we’re half-way there
Whoa, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand and we’ll make it, I swear
Whoa, livin’ on a prayer

Whoa, we’re half-way there
Whoa, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand and we’ll make it, I swear
Whoa, livin’ on a prayer
