Last week’s Totem on Bird Clan Messenger was Lizard, so I was pretty surprised when the public announcement of the Lizard Queen’s death was made on September 8 – only three days before the anniversary of 911. There’s so much about this event to unpack, I could write three volumes at least, but at this point, I will content myself with weaving weekly tapestries of MemeTastic Medicine Shows, great music and the stories that Patriots are both living and telling through the Bird Clan Kitchen Party and this site. Thank you all for being here. You keep me sane. xok

This week’s podcast includes the music of Susan Aglukark, Sam Tinnesz, Tom Petty, Queen, Styx, Nahko and Medicine for the people, and Alan Jackson’s beautiful 911 tribute, “Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning” – along with fantastic news bites, video clips, memes, and input from Patriots around the world.
