'Other night, the Insomnia Fairy (well, People Like Us on +WFMU ) brought me helluva  #YouTubesday treat: German #StarTrek  
Raumpatrouille Orion English Trailer

Okay, not really: According to this excellent review...
http://www.toddstadtman.com/lucha-orion.html

The captain,  McClane, opposes authority, and his first mate's a boozer, there's a spy on board, and most of the crew ended up at Space Patrol as a form of punishment, so, in that sense, it's closer to being a go-go booted German "Firefly", but still... miniatures! Space bars! Kraftwerk-like robot voices! Ridiculous dancing!

Raise a glass this #musicmonday   for avant-garde baritone saxophonist Fred Ho aka The Green Monster, who died last week in Brooklyn at the age of 56 (a mere pup in jazz years.)

Fred was self-taught, a Chinese-American inspired by the Civil Rights movement to do something about everything wrong with the world. He created an art form called Afro-Asian Culture, writing dance suites about everything from Chinese folklore to Muhammad Ali. RIP, Fred!

Once you've filed those taxes, why not stop by the corner shop for a cold, refreshing beer?

'Got grief on Good Friday for that selfie of #Jesus on the cross. So this #420 #Easter I'm spreading the good news that your lord could have turned weeds into marijuana, or sugar into cocaine if He wanted. Amen!

This #YouTubesday  is also #taxday  in the US. Did you know Intuit/TurboTax/CCIA enlisted rabbis to help fight the 2002 Free File law? Thank dog for the free market.
