The Left Show
‘The Morning After’ by Christine De Luca
Scotland, 19th September 2014
Let none wake despondent: one way
or another we have talked plainly,
tested ourselves, weighed up the sum
of our knowing, ta’en tent o scholars,
checked the balance sheet of risk and
fearlessness, of wisdom and of folly.
Was it about the powers we gain or how
we use them? We aim for more equality;
and for tomorrow to be more peaceful
than today; for fairness, opportunity,
the common weal; a hand stretched out
in ready hospitality.
It’s those unseen things that bind us,
not flag or battle-weary turf or tartan.
There are dragons to slay whatever happens:
poverty, false pride, snobbery, sectarian
schisms still hovering. But there’s
nothing broken that’s not repairable.
We’re a citizenry of bonnie fighters,
a gathered folk; a culture that imparts,
inspires, demands a rare devotion,
no back-tracking; that each should work
and play our several parts to bring about
the best in Scotland, an open heart.
I remember this one! Pasty Orifices! This one goes back a bit to the time that Brenda and Lisa visited the studio and hilarity ensued. This one also was the beginning of the carryover joke, but you’d have to go back for that one.
This is it, my little beauties! The last show before we, The LEFT Show family, go on “Vacation.” Vacation, sadly, in The LEFT Show world means lots and lots of work to do, getting current shows re-invigorated, a couple of new shows off the ground, and, if we can find just TWO folks to buy in at the CITIZENS RE-UNITED LEVEL, we can get the call in feature up and running. LIVE CALLS!
Lisa, Brenda, and Forrest join your faithful starship captain, J.M. Bell in another round of talking about the talk aboutable! This one is a Wednesday show that, honestly, redefines the definition of the Wednesday Show. Not kidding, either. Funny doesn’t cover it.
Jason is back with a new Bat Sh@t Crazy all about those pesky racists at CPAC.
This week’s linkage!

All the members of the Defenestrate Media Family were happily skipping around the Salt Lake City Conic Con this last weekend, and, boy, are my arms tired … or something that makes sense. Even though we told a few Con Stories, we got through a lot of important news. Take a click as JM Bell, Forrest Shaw, and Bob Easton thrill the earholes on your head! Jason Williams has a new The Sidetrack, too! You Lucky Ducklings!

The BAD NEWS
Yeah, it’s Labor Day, and I’m a big supporter of the men and women of America’s Union families, but, ever since the Utah AFL-CIO started giving money and campaign support to Republicans, I quit celebrating it. Go team, ammirite?
The whole gang is in the studio this week as we get ready for the 2014 Salt Lake Comic Con. Lots of announcements, lots of details, lots of news, and lots of anatomical humor.
It’s The LEFT Show in a readable format! JM Bell answered 23 incredibly involved questions with (not) complex and (not) deep replies for Gavin’s Underground at the Salt Lake City Weekly. It’s all about the show, Forrest, Jake, Jason, JC, Robert, Melissa, Holly, Michael, and Jack Kerouac! There are a lot of words in this one, friends of the show! Take a click, and get your read on!
