For some reason, my friend Bobbe has been something of a freak magnet lately.
He was back stabbed by people who should have been looking out for him as a Silat brother, forcing him onto the path of a Wolf's Head.
He has had his youtube site infested with trolls who, having no life of their own, spend huge amounts of time leaving sophomoric (1: suggestive of or resembling the traditional sophomore; intellectually pretentious, overconfident, conceited, etc., but immature; 2: childish, adolescent, juvenile.) comments on his videos.
Most recently, he has been verbally harassed by an oafish buffoon who is pretentious enough to think he can trademark the name of a Silat style that has been around for 100 years or more.
It makes me wonder if Bobbe might have done something really dumb in a past life or something. Or maybe he has not been sacrificing enough canned mackerel to the squid god. Perhaps he left an offering of one of those French speaking beers on the alter of Cathulu, thereby offending him beyond reason, who knows.
When I am feeling stressed by all the stupid people in the world, I put on some tunes and chill for a bit.
So here are some tunes to cheer you up dewd.
First, some Gillian Welch, an orphan girl who made good. She doing "Caleb Myer" with her partner David Rawlings, who's playing that fiddle back guitar like he's going to town.
And the there is this cover of "Star Of The County Down" by the Orthodox Celts.
To hell with the crazy people!
