Pete Seeger died today at the age of 90. I really loved the guy.
Here he is with Oscar the Grouch singing “Garbage” from the 1974 album “Pete Seeger & Brother Kirk Visit Sesame Street”.
I present to you, dear readers, the ULTIMATE creepy white guy! On a personal note, shortly after watching this documentary I saw this guy walking down Market Street in San Francisco. He was just as horrifying in person, and I saw him hitting on every Asian woman in sight (including me) while his wife stood by glaring at him. Once a creepy white guy, always a creepy white guy…
Happy 82nd Birthday, Bishop Tutu!
