Very, very busy at work today, hence the light posting. Came home and decided to have family time at the mall tonight, where we spent four hours feeding the economy. We are such good Americans. Well, I'm trying to justify the money we spent tonight, so humor me.
I have some really important things to do right now. Like download a few of these.
I've been playing with the Leftinator
, which just cracks me up, yet saddens me at the same time when I realize that there are people who write paragraphs just like this - and mean it.
bq. Clearly, Colin Powell's parade of lies is solid evidence of the flagrant lies promulgated by the political donor class. Presumably, Bush’s argument for war brings about a McCarthyism which threatens everything we hold dear. Perhaps for the first time since the late 1940s, the pro-Sharon neoconservative cabal brings forth the police state which has come to pass. It appears that the influence of Leo Strauss leads our attention to the final subjugation of the Middle East, beginning with the $90bn invasion of Iraq.
Heh, I think someone left this as a comment over at Jeff's
After the dreaded news today, I kept thinking where do we go from here?
Which was a mistake, as I spent the rest of the day with Axl Rose's voice singing where do we go, where do we go now, where do we go (ayayayayayayayayayay)
. Please. Make it stop.
So I'm really liking that Franz Ferdinand song. See also, Velvet Revolver, Jet, Dashboard Confessional and Brand New
Before you go and say anything about my "modern" musical tastes (because everyone knows I'm an old fart, I'll have you know that I was rockin' out to Boston in the car on the way home from the mall. I know my kids and husband were snickering, but they just don't understand what the classic
in classic rock
means. But the thing about Boston is, it just doesn't sound right if it's not on 8 track.
As for the rest of the world:
Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye
