Coflooferation

Coflooferation (floofinition) – The actions of animals who are being helpful by taking actions to help one another.

In use: “After surviving the trails of the hurricane, coflooferation was rampant as animals huddled together regardless of species, thankful to be alive and with another.”

Tuesday’s Theme Music

Pearl Jam broke into the morning’s mental music stream (M3S, patent pending) with “Even Flow” (1992), a song about a homeless man. It’s one of the songs that was on my commuting play tape when I was stationed at Onizuka and living in the SF-SJ Bay Area.

The lyrics that started my stream aren’t at the beginning, but the first refrain.

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don’t know, so he chases them away
Someday yet, he’ll begin his life again
Life again, life again…

Kneelin’, looking through the paper though he doesn’t know to read, ooh yeah
Oh, prayin’, now to something that has never showed him anything
Oh, feelin’, understands the weather of the winters on its way
Oh, ceilings, few and far between all the legal halls of shame, yeah

I enjoy this live version. They’re pretty faithful to the song but the band’s energy is on full display.

Floofcifist

Floofcifist (floofinition) – Someone (person or animal) who supports animals and animals rights and equality.

In use: “Corky the cat had somehow become a floofcifist, and insisted that each cat and dog receive equal treat, enforcing her opinion with quick swats from her right paw. Nancy soon called that paw, “Corky’s right paw of justice”. Equally respecting and fearing the right paw of justice, the other animals soon accepted Corky’s position.”

Monday’s Theme Music

Thinking about a big coming out party, someday, after the crises is resolved. (A.C.: After COVID-19. We’ll start a new reference system – “In 2 AC, the first normal baseball game was played.”) Maybe the theme should be dancing in the streets.

The song, “Dancing in the Street”, and its many versions jumped into the stream. I do enjoy the Mick and David version. But I don’t want to show favoritism, so here’s a few offerings. Looking at them, I’m surprised that it has sprung up as a new cover by some one, like, I don’t know, Kelly Clarkson.

David Bowie and Mick Jagger, 1985. Boy, the disco era is really displayed in their clothing style. Fitting for responding to a global problem, as this collaboration was done to raise money and awareness for “Live Aid” famine relief.

Martha and the Vandelllas, 1964 – the original, to me.

Van Halen, 1982 – oh, yeah, lots of synthesizer.

Mama and the Papas, 1966 – a very mellow version.
