    Harmonica, fiddle, banjo, guitar, light drums. What’s not to like? I’m kind of surprised how well produced this was, though… Is there a “Country Music Studio” available for Macintosh that has a hundred banjo licks, violin fills and harmonica riffs in the keys of C, G, and A?

    If you want rockabilly activism, though, this one is much better.

    Formative moment from my adolescence was back when Dad listened to Limbaugh. He had a bit where he took Layla by Derek and the Dominoes, and turned it into:

    “Donna Sheleila, [do doot doo] you got me on my knees Sheleila”.

    It was fucking awful. But not this bad. But still awful. You betcha.

    Gawd. SO not going there. Saturday has been good to me so far.

    Here’s my song for the birthers and the town hall wrecking crews (if that’s not completely redundant): Circle Jerks playing Robyn Hitchcock’s ‘I Wanna Destroy You’.

    Au contraire. See, e.g., Leni Riefenstahl, or D.W. Griffith for counter examples. If anything, the current “right wing” movement is historically distinguished by its unexpectedly terrible aesthetics.

    I demand much better graphic design from my reactionary hate movements! And at least make the bloody trains run on time.

    Also:

    Got to looking through their stuff on YouTube, and that inevitably brought up Laura Nyro. Your thoughts on her? I would think she would have a place on your shelf right next to Joni.

    You’re so very close! The sequence on top shelf, left to right:
    Joni, Bonnie, EBTG, Laura!

    This is in the car right now. I think it’s probably in my top ten favorite albums of all time:

    Dear lord…I watch about half of it before giving up, run off to take a shower, and before I step in, I find the song stuck in my head. And because songs stuck in your head are always amplified while you’re taking a shower (and may lead to singing), I had to abort and rig up some other music to play.

    So no, I ain’t letting you off the hook for this one, John!

    @Laura W:

    Ah, Creedence . . .

    I tried to self-medicate by finding a video of Faith Hill doing “Take Me as I Am,” but no luck. I am not a big Faith Hill fan, but I do like her first album a lot, and I was disappointed to see that she left “Take Me” off her greatest hits. WTF?! Excellent song.

    My favorite obscure Creedence song is “Walk on the Water.” (Sorry, slide show only.) Sort of Stephen King meets Southern gothic swamp rock. Totally in a good way.

    And Bonnie Raitt: “Everybody’s Cryin’ Mercy.”

    Gotta go to work in a bit, but I’ll be back tonight.

    Judging by the hair, outfit, and makeup, I can only conclude that there was some kind of question about the citizenship of either Walter Mondale or Michael Dukakis.

The only thing is that it’s much stronger now, it’s had 8 years to ferment. They’re all totally blind drunk with rage and fear.

    @Laura W:

    I made a mix CD combining Nyro’s versions of her hits with the (usually more popular) versions done by others. Ended up using quite a few non-hits and covers from the stuff she did with LaBelle backing her up. Lots of a cappella stuff. I love “The Bells.”

    My favorite Nyro song: “Eli’s Coming.” Her version and Three Dog Night’s are great bookends.

    The current odd lack of design in the right wing is limited to more self produced and online forums, but I do think it is at least in some part done on purpose.

    If it looks professional, it makes the claim (usually true) that is astroturf easier to believe. Some of the content is intentionally given bad design to make is look real.

I can’t BELIEVE what a first six months it’s been. Just think, seven and a half years to go!”

    Ghaddamn, thanks for that link! I wanna destroy you is the perfect anthem for the wingnuts; washed that bullshit above right outta my ears. Hilarious video, too; never heard the CJs cover it.

    Of course, that song was originally written for Ronnie Reagan, back when some guy named Richard Perle (sound vaguely familiar?) and his buddies was advising Reagan to start pushing the nuclear threat level up. So Hitchcock felt, hell, this is it, we’re all gonna get vaporized.

    I feel it coming on again
    Just like it did before
    They feed your pride with boredom
    And they lead you on to war
    The way you treat each other

    Try to find a way out of this.
    There seems to be no chance.
    Bounty hunters closer to you.
    Start to remember back.
    When you studied biology
    back in your high school class.

    Wait now, what did they say
    about the human body and proportions of things?
    Blood is an energy conductor.
    I am full of that all I need is an outlet.

    They’re getting closer
    but now you have a plan.
    Lead them to the generator
    where there’s solid land.
    The concrete floor will do just fine
    and electric outlets.
    Open up your veins and splash the blood
    and hit the power lines.

    The stench of cooking skin.
    Everyone of them with their hair on end
    Their eyes exploded in.
    You stand with your arms bleeding still
    You cannot stop the flow.
    Though you are the victor tonight
    your time has come to go.

    go go go go go go
    Your time has come to go
    go go go go go go
    Your time has come to go

Once committed to teh stupid I had to finish it … it was not nearly as much fun as, say, sawing off my leg with a Sawzall.

    If I get killed on the Harley tonight trying to get this miserable experience out of my mind I will haunt you Cole, I promise you it will be ugly. Gus will blame you, he’ll be coming for you – being eaten by 150#s of adorable will be a fitting end for such behavior.

X Files before the X Files. And as a result of her heartbreak, she loves/hates all nerdy men and assumes that they are lying sacks of crapola.
