How would a date with Tesla look?

I wonder…

Hullaba Lulu: The Dance of the Bots

I wanted to link this week’s Hullaba Lulu video to San Francisco’s Pride Week so I used an excerpt from a 1929 Dorsey Brothers cover of ‘Am I Blue’ sung by Irving Kaufman.

The Dance of the Bots in Purple, Rob Goldstein

It’s an unusual cover for 1929 and you’ll know why I chose it when you hear the song.

Am I blue

Sunday the 26th is Pride Day in San Francisco.

A couple of friends have remarked on how weird it feels to celebrate Pride
while the Trump Administration kidnaps children for reasons too horrific
too contemplate.

Here’s what I think: when the opposition doesn’t show up, the bullies win.

Happy Pride Month everyone and be sure to check out this week’s episode of Hullaba Lulu on Teagan’s Books.

Valentino Lulu Dance Hop Bot on horse RED Cotton Club-5-22-Valentino and Lulu dance the Lindy Hop outside the Cotton Club, by Rob Goldstein

Welcome back to Jazz Age Wednesdays.  You know this story is spontaneously written.  Saturday I followed the impulse to do a recap… before Wednesday.  I added the rewind to one of the next set of things from Rob Goldstein  who creates the gorgeous images and videos for this series. (Click herefor the entire collection of videos.)  So, that made the recap Chapter 9.1.  Today’s episode of Hullaba Lulu brings us to Chapter 9.2 of the series.

My Writing Process

Sometimes it takes me a bit of storytelling to make my way to a “thing.”  That is what happened here.  So, I’ve divided this chapter yet again.  I hope you enjoy the ride.

Poor Little Glad Rag Doll

Teagan and I are on a break from Hullaba Lulu this week.

We both have busy weeks; I have a friend in surgery
today and a guest arrives from Vancouver next week.

Then there is the effect of the Trump administration
on my Illness and its symptoms.

That’s a discussion I take up in my next post.

If you are an adult child of a pathological narcissist and you are not
affected by the diseased behavior of the Trump administration,
you’re still in denial.

Lucky you!  🙂

A quick explanation of the video:

I was intrigued with the idea of the danger of entering the world of a painting in Chapter Eight of Hullaba Lulu. So, I played with it by importing a few public domain copies of the Pittura Metafisica paintings of de Chirico and Arnaldo dell’Ira.

 

I chose “Piazza d’Italia,”by Arnaldo dell’Ira,  1934, as the backdrop and used a script to set it in motion, I prefer to use dynamic backdrops.

The audio is an excerpt from ‘Glad Rag Doll’ as performed in 1929 by the
Rose  Wood Orchestra.  

You can get a copy at the Internet Archives.
