Rex Tillerson and Wilbur Ross do Sword Dance

Live it up. This is fun as it gets. Considering they haven't had any alcohol to loosen them up. If they did, then the swords would have to go.

Oddest syncopated beat I ever heard that lasts the whole song. It has the rhythm of a five-legged elephant with a prolapsed anus.

Chip, boom, chip-chip, boom (x3)
Chip, boom-boom, boom-boom.

Kind of catchy.

This morning I learned that Arabs call their version of Asian Sword Dance,"ardah" and it's accompanied by spoken poetry for the occasion.

More on ardah: Interchangeable Cultural Heritage When Donald Trump participated in Saudi Arabian sword dance.

Where kings and clerks, administrators, soldiers and billionaires mingle. Before engaging in some grand endeavor. Like battle.

It must be a big deal, Bannon is wearing a tie. He's like Ted Williams in eschewing a tie almost always.

The Secret Service must have been "thrilled" about all the swords, but than again, this was not Berkeley.

Or the WH Press Room.

Are the checkered table cloths the no smoking section?

The drumming is in 6/4 time.

I was reading and watching a video of a piano piece by Beethoven. In the middle the time signature went to 9/16. Way to write 'em, Ludwig!
