Rockin' with Roy Zimmerman

The Hubby and I were wondering what to do on Friday night.  We thought about going to see How to Train Your Dragon at the MN Zoo IMAX because 1) It was playing at an IMAX in 3D, so…duh, and 2) It has garnered an amazing 98% at Rotten Tomatoes and whodathunk that?

But then I read on Pharyngula about Roy Zimmerman playing – of all freaking places – Cannon Falls High School Auditorium.  Cannon Falls is a little town between Rochester and St. Paul, MN.  It has a population of about 4000 people, and is a typical Minnesota town in that it consists mostly of churches, liquor stores and banks.  You can read about all of the cool places Roy Zimmerman has played, and all of the cool people he’s played alongside at his cool website.  And then you’ll see that Roy Zimmerman playing…Cannon Falls…was just too good to miss.

Roy Zimmerman is a political satirist – his tagline is “Funny Songs about Ignorance, War and Greed.  He’s a big ol’ liberal, hippy, socialist.  Based on his songs that we heard on Friday, I’d say his songs fall in three categories:

*Songs that make fun of Right Wing Politics and the Religious Right
*Songs that make fun of Liberals
*Songs that remind us that we are all one and stuck on this planet together, so let’s play nice, dammit.

You can find a LOT of Roy Zimmerman songs on YouTube (or on his CDs for sale on his website).  Here are two of my favorites:

It was a very intimate show – there were only about 100 people in the entire audience.  We unexpectedly ran into a couple of friends from the Twin Cities, and the four of us sat together in the second row.  PZ Myers showed up and was asked to draw the winning raffle ticket.  We went to the after-show get-together at the Mill Street Cafe and had the chance to meet some very cool freethinkers, including PZ Myers and some awesome people from the Waseca, WI FreeThinkers group.  Very cool, very unexpected evening.  Cannon Falls – who knew?

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored
    myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is
    popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods
    to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice
    from someone with experience. Any help would
    be greatly appreciated!

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Many thanks!

    Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to know a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I believe that you simply can do with some percent to force the message house a little
    bit, but other than that, this is great blog. An excellent read.
    I will definitely be back.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed
    and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with
