Boomer Patrol

We had a good time on the Darkstream last night, playing both of the great John Bradley's Boomer songs. You've probably already heard his inspirational Hand Over Fluffy Pillow, and his heartfelt rendition of Hush Now is even better.

The beautifully ominous third verse is definitely my favorite:

Now I'm walking in time to the beat of your heart

And I'm counting the steps to the door of your room

Only shadows attend, as the pillows descend

Get to know the feeling of liberation and release


Hush now, hush now, don't breathe now Boomer

Hush now, hush now, the pillows come

Since the Unauthorized livestream last night went down after 3 min transmission (presumably bad connectivity locally) I shall catch up on UATV when it’s uploaded.

Being for decades uninterested in football/soccer it was with open mouthed grateful astonishment that I listened to the Darkstream on “Take your own penalties”. A multi-level tour de force of fact, rhetoric and jubilant schadenfreude served by a specialist master chef. Definitely an episode for my archive to share with others.

It was a great moment to see "Live" on the webpage. A first for me.

I'm chuckling, hard. lol

Supreme! Enjoyed John Bradley's other covers so folks check him out For example, One Thing Leads To Another - The Fixx, brought back fond Gen-X memories. Keep it up Vox & John!

The flourish at the end of the song was masterful.

If it is possible to use "LOL" in a truthful and non-gamma way, this is it.

Replay is not on DLive either? I hate missing Darkstreams!

The nasty boomer replies that show up prove your point so reliably. Not even "I wish we had stopped jobs from being sent overseas/stopped mass immigration or gun control or abortion". It's "har har I'll see you young people dead, I'm glad we torched the country and made it non white!"

@1 Not likely. This is the type of stream he's not going to upload. He took it down from DLive too.

At first when I saw "Hush Now" I thought it might be that old Boomer era son "Hush" by Deep Purple (which would be apropos), not a Gen X song like "Don't Dream It's Over". lol Still, this works so well. :)

49 here..and guess I never paid attention to boomer ways ....but you are so right!! Thank you for casting light on yet another truth.

I look forward to watching it on UATV. Hopefully it'll be uploaded soon.

Not up on my pop songs... are these two songs with original music, or are they Weird Al-type re-lyricizations?

Replace the word 'pillow' with the word 'murder'. Why cant you mock the boomer without inciting murder?

Blogger sumdudesfrysauce July 22, 2021 1:33 PM  

How is describing their future inciting murder?

If you describe a bad general outcome resulting from their generation's sins, Boomers believe you're personally and maliciously doing it to them as an individual.

How dare you. Now you deserve everything Boomers did to you.

''Replace the word 'pillow' with the word 'murder'. Why cant you mock the boomer without inciting murder?''

Replace the word 'pillow' with the word 'puppy dogs'. Why can't you mock the Boomer without inciting puppy dogs?

Many thanks to all of you who stopped by to give these tracks (and some of my others) a listen today, and to Vox for making that possible.

Can hardly wait to see what we'll be doing next!

Which is classic narcissism.

Commentator: Those people over there are blah-blah.

Bystander: You talking' about me?
