"Good Shit"

Whoah Fela Kuti had thirty wives! I did not know that, but I'm sure glad his music and political activism are back in the spotlight. I remember being introduced to Fela so many years ago, ahh memories.

The other day on The Colbert Report the cast of Fela! performed, Zombie, a song from the new Broadway show. I was both surprised and impressed. Neat! I think I'm going to be on a Fela kick for awhile, which is nice because it makes me feel warm and want to dance all over, when it's cold and all I want to do is wrap up and read books.

Hey, it's Friday, and thank goodness for that! I think this week was the longest of the year. Winter solstice week from hell!

(Vocals start about six minutes in!) Mmm!
