Yes We Can ( Only Hope Hilary Doesn't Start Crying Again)

Heading into Tuesday here...

The day where I'm hoping that Hilary gets her ass kicked all over the Potomac region.

I don't even know what it is about her that irks me so much... I just fall into that pool of 48% of people that ain't down with her at all.



Hilary's negatives are driving her campaign into a corner, and if the Democratic bureaucratic bigwigs, and miscellaneous movers & shakers giving her more money can't sense this... they all deserve to lose, big , hard and hopelessly.

Sadly, they won't be the ones paying the price if the dangerously out of touch Dumb-o-crats stick to their consistently losing formula...it's America's rapidly endangered middle classes that will sting.

The poor and disenfranchised can take it, they've already been in a cloud of potent pain & rear fu*ked so long they'll barely notice anymore. Hell, they had candy coated candidate John Edwards running on their behalf, and like that did either of their causes a bit of good.


It's just bad casting...


John Edwards seems like a voice for the downtrodden as much as Marilyn Manson is ripe for the 700 Club house band.

Having John Edwards advocating on the behalf of the nation's poorest is like having Richie Cunningham running your guerrilla militant motorcycle gang.


Everyone knows it's better when "Charles is in Charge"....

Hell I'd vote for Chachi before I'd vote for Hilary...


Maybe if she had a silly VH-1 reality show I could relate too...

Hell Chachi found a girl at 46...maybe Hilary could find an enthusiastic voting public.

They could call it Former First Family, I imagine Bill's at home laying on the couch with indigestion and a hot water bottle on his head from eating too much pizza & grits in Harlem with the interns. The laughs never end as she hustles donors, has her botox shots on camera, forgets to send flowers to Vince Foster's family on his birthday and blows off a Senate strategy session with Charles Schumer for some serious shopping at Wal-Mart. How about some shots of Hilary and Chelsea in the kitchen drinking Frappucinos, gal talkin' & giving each other backrubs...

That's the kinda change I wanna see...

Because a snoozer show like "Charles Schumer in Charge", that could be even worse than hanging in the Clinton's Crib...

that's the sound of America changing the channel...


I wonder if the Obama's might consider doing a show...

At least we could see if they're pulling out any prayer rugs 5 times a day, Barack might help dispel those muslim rumors he's been dodging...

Of course he's home less than a dozen nights a month, likely a lot less these days...

Maybe Barack is more a "Road Rules" kinda dude...

Kinda like Bill Clinton...

They could both probably get down to some NAFTA Canadian rock from Danko Jones






Danko Jones - Code Of The Road


Speaking of channel changing...


Like I mentioned in lasterday's post, The annual Grammy awards were on CBS last night.

As much as I meant to skip that, the phone rang and a tipster cajoled me to turn it on to see Keely Smith with Kid Rock doing that Old Black Magic.

From then on, I was hooked into the telecast...

Kid & Keely...



It was almost as good as the time Kid Rock and Hank Williams Jr rocked the CMA's in 2002...



I uploaded this clip to YouTube awhile back and it's since gotten just shy of 300,000 views, ( plus the comments box gets all stupid ornery redneck vs detroit rock all day...)


Ah, The Grammys... it was like we were old, uh, not quite friends....

I recognized them, they ignored me...

Sitting through the boring Awards backslapping, the tributes & the ads & waiting ever so patiently for the Amy Winehouse satellite freakshow to arrive...

Indeed it did, our curious gal whipping up some frothy, somewhat off kilter interpretations of her own hits...


Aside from Amy's sly snarl, and pathetic pouty pleadings for her incarcerated junkie lover, I also noticed CBS amping up the promotion of it's Last.FM service...

Acquired last year for approx $180 million, the money sucking app that tabulates online spins of tunes seemed an odd choice for the media behemoth.

here's my Last.Fm top ten


But the radio industry giant has recently begun rivaling Pandora, Napster & Real's paid Rhapsody services by giving up legal streaming songs in 128 kb mp3 format...

The thing that's most surprising though, is Last.fm is all free for now... with no DJ's or annoying audio adverts inserted into the streaming audio feeds.

The subscriptions of yore seem to be gone, and yer now in a world of music picking & recommendations tailored to your tastes.

Another cool feature is the option of downloading selected tracks from indie acts like this cool dub track


Gator Dash featuring Toires - Gator




Or how about this obscure, but certainly worthy Valentine's week nugget from my San Francisco based pal Bone Cootes...

Bone Cootes - No More Flowers



Bone CootesNo More Flowers

To think, I was already hooked on this site long before the full length legal mp3 tunes showed up...

here's a few random selections more from the middle of the alphabet within the vast unwieldy last.fm free download archives...

Mika - Now I Know How Morrissey Felt (remix)


Mickey Dread - Positive Reality



Okkervill River - Our Life Is Not A Movie Maybe




Check out my own profile and faves at Last.FM at Last.fm/Dvoodoo

Cheers & Beers
