Wobbly bits anyone?

Randy Newman – You Can Leave Your Hat On

Today’s Quote: “In order to swim one takes off all one’s clothes-in order to aspire to the truth one must undress in a far more inward sense, divest oneself of all one’s inward clothes, of thoughts, conceptions, selfishness etc. before one is sufficiently naked.” — Søren Kierkegaard (1813-55), Danish philosopher. The Journals of Søren Kierkegaard: A Selection, no. 1395, (ed. and tr. by Alexander Dru, 1938), entry for 1854.


Here’s an interesting video although it’s not funny, spectacular, outrageous, stupid, etc. It’s informative interesting although most of my faithful readers probably won’t find it as interesting as I did. It’s a video clip of an interview with a fully clothed naturist from a British talk show. The guest does a pretty good job of explaining naturism and the host was quite professional about it, no attempts to rile people up or create undue controversy and sensationalism. The whole thing was quite well done, IMHO. Besides, it’s worth viewing just to hear phrases like “wobbly bits.” You just gotta love English euphemisms.


In other news, I have de-stressed significantly since Tuesday. The dysthymia is still here but not nearly as stressful. Oh well, it’s time to get nekkid.


You Can Leave Your Hat On by Randy Newman

Baby, take off your coat…(real slow)
Baby, take off your shoes…(here, I’ll take your shoes)
Baby, take off your dress
Yes, yes, yes
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on

Go on over there and turn on the light…no, all the lights
Now come back here and stand on this chair…that’s right
Raise your arms up in to the air…shake ’em
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live

Suspicious minds are talking
Trying to tear us apart
They say that my love is wrong
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
I know what love is

You Can Leave Your Hat On by Randy Newman, Sail Away (1972)
This could be one of the greatest love songs ever written, or not.
