We’ve now reached the “let’s pretend it’s 1969″ portion of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

David Crosby is worth about $40 million, which makes him the perfect choice to sing protest songs that empathize with the downtrodden:

Longtime musicians and activists David Crosby and Graham Nash are scheduled to perform a concert at the Occupy Wall Street protest site in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park.

The Occupy Wall Street website says the Tuesday afternoon concert will be an acoustic set of protest songs.

Then they’ll hop in the limo, head back to the Waldorf for Tofu burgers and then fly first class back to LA.

Update:

Is there any better entertainment than old hippies who can’t let it go? Given the sanitary conditions in Zuccotti Park — or lack thereof — let’s just bill the group as Crosby, Smells, Nash & Dung:

    Wasn't Pete Seeger available? Or Peter, Paul and Mary? These OWS protests are turning into what can best be described as a farewell tour for long discredited geriatric hippies. This isn't about the younger generation but about the losers of MY generation who just won't go away.

    Crosby's done enough blow his Net Worth should be significantly higher. Like their Messiah, more leading from behind. Rather than -starting- the movement, they're jumping on the bandwagon long after it's already totally lost momentum.

    Won't HE be surprised when rather than casting his bloodshot eyes upon c-o-n-s-e-n-s-u-a-l group-gropes in the front row it's more like g@ng-r@pes? Oh well, anything to keep those royalty checks rolling in!

    Crosby/Nash might be surprised, because this time instead of "avoid the brown acid" it's "don't touch the brown police car."

    Right, like the brown acid at Woodstock, you will not get off, it 'tastes' like cr@p because it IS cr@p and will only land you feet first in the make-shift "medical tent" where the person attending is having a worse trip than YOU are.

    JFTR, the only performances at Woodstock I ever enjoyed were of course Jimi, but primarily Alvin Lee and Ten Years After playing "I'm Going Home". The rest of it is folk-filler where I'm concerned. Like The Who ( I still don't get it either? )

    I would think that would be a dangerous place for millionaires to go. There are a lot of greedy people there who want to take what they have.

    Will they be doing some of the old protest classics?

    "We Shall Overcome (women in their tents)"
    "Blowing (Chunks) in the Wind"
    "Give Peace a Chance… then Attack!"

    Doug's "Where are Reps. Clyburn, Cleaver and Lewis in THIS one?"

    A must see. Truly Unhinged. In ways, OWS tends to be an Open Air Asylum. Keeps us away from the rest of us!

  8. backwoodsconsr on November 8th, 2011 3:50 pm

    "I Want to Hold Your Boobs"
    "Imagine…there's no sanity."

    Speaking of all this crap. I see that Apple is preparing for the possibility of it's retail store employees to become unionized (I'll bet that will be just great for the price of Apple products and services).

    I am so glad I put down my coffee mug before reading this one.

    Had his bout w/ illness not killed Steve Jobs, surely this would have. After all, it's only rated as one of the Top 50 Places to Work ( uh… three years running! )

    WTF. You have to imagine a genius like Jobs couldn't possibly have anything but contempt for Duh Wun. What's the matter guys, stock options not panning out..? Finding 'that' hard to believe…

    Jobs` statement, "You`ll be a one term pResident" (paraphrased) wasn`t very complimentary, was it ?

  13. SignPainterGuy on November 9th, 2011 2:43 am

    "Crosby, Smells, Nash and Dung" :-) Jumps right out there and attacks all the senses !

  14. Dexter_Alarius on November 9th, 2011 12:24 pm

    Shouldn't that be "Crosby Smells Hash and Dung"?

  15. Doug on November 9th, 2011 12:27 pm

    Ha! Even better.
