Sing Along With OETA and Dad
Oh, nerdy rapture! The voice of BJ Wexler on a Tuesday can only mean one thing! I just realized that it was OETA pledge week!!! Nerdiest of all raptures, There's a Peter Paul and Mary special!!
**As a side note, if you loved A Mighty Wind, these specials are gold. It takes the "mock" out of "mockumentary".**
Peter Paul and Mary music has the same cozy nostalgic effect for me as other 70's kistch. From my mother, avocado green and macrame makes me warm and safe...
**Peter is asking for pledge money and I swear to God, he's about to cry. Good God, throw a bone so the kids can watch Elmo. He just likened the effect of your pledge dollars to the March on Washington!**
...ok, sorry. Safe and warm music is all from my father. I learned to sing all of Mary's parts in this music at 10 or 11, I know too many words to Harry Chapin music and thanks to Dad, I wept openly upon hearing Pete Seeger live at the 2003 Woody Guthrie festival.
There is no point to this post, no conclusion. I am just so glad that this heritage held stronger than my fundy upbringing. Otherwise, this post might be about this.
That and Mary Travers looks creepier and creepier.
