I just passed my 450th post on this blog - and it was about Hogan's Heroes. Sweet. Didn't even plan that. Just happened.
Life is good.
And it's even better now because nutjob anti-abortion crazy killer Scott "He's just like Martin Luther King, Jr!" Roeder has been found guilty of murder by a jury of his peers.
In only thirty-seven minutes.
Roeder's lunatic-fringe fellow-haters are already threatening violence over the decision.
What was that, Negativland? What about Christianity?

He said our name! Obama said our name! He said "Galesburg, Illinois"!
Yeah, us! Yeah!!!
That's when I lost consciousness. Anything else happen?

Thanks, Texas. You've given me one more reason to be ashamed of my chosen profession. As if being ashamed that you were ever let into the Union isn't enough...too bad they really don't have the right to secede that they think they do.
You're probably aware that the Texas Board of Education is the most powerful group of educational nitwits in the nation. Since they buy so many textbooks, they practically dictate the content of them for the whole country.
But besides being uptight, overzealous, small-minded, warped and fracked conservative creeps of the highest order, they are also Grade A Morons.
Their latest kooky escapade? Banning the classic and beloved children's book Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Bill Martin. Why? Because Bill Martin also wrote a book about - gasp! - Marxism - double gasp!!
Except he didn't. Different Bill Martin. Gasp?
And they don't have the brass ones to change their minds and correct their mistakes. All they can do is point fingers and run in circles and eventually fall in a heap on the ground with those fingers stuck up some very naughty places, I'm sure, because that's where they were pulled from to begin with.
I really pity those poor kids in Texas if this is what passes for educational leadership there. And it is.

No more music here. Only jibber and probably jabber.
For music, you'll have to go over to Nothin' But Neil (Young). If you want live Neil Young. That's all I'm posting there. That and midnight love letters to Neil.
I've been pondering a change of direction for a long time and decided this is the time. I'll be posting one or two complete Neil shows, in FLAC format, every week. NO MP3s!!! If you want MP3s, you can do the magic downgrading after you get the FLAC files.
I got me a funky new template that I like because it's clean and simple and kinda looks like a magazine. I'm also pushing Neil-ware via Amazon. Download the bootleg - buy an album! (I can't force you, but I do encourage you to).
Please stop by, let me know how you feel about it, don't freakin' whine because I'm using Rapishare because I don't give a shit about it, and enjoy the tunes.
