"the Democratic National Committee will no longer accept contributions from federal lobbyists, will no longer take contributions from PACs"

I really don't think I can believe it. But hay, if you dicks can keep to your word I'll be impressed.
I'm thinking that "federal" might be a key term there. Also, I'd like to see the individual democratic politicians knock it off as well.

"Kick ass!"

Another dead bird.

I'm running out of places to bury these guys at work.
Jack Handey was on the Sound of Young America recently, and listening to it this morning reminded me that he's pretty much the funniest person that ever lived (sorry, Bob Odenkirk). Anyway, I went through and read everything he's written for the New Yorker in the past couple years. Sometimes, when you're just in a shitty, morbid mood for awhile, reading something so supremely stupid/awesome can be the best thing in the world.

and I'm going to memorize this piece because it is the funniest thing I've ever read in my life.

Bo diddley R.I.P.

Bo Diddley dies at age 79

While he's been a household name (or at least was) for half a century, I still feel like the man's music is criminally overlooked when discussing the true pioneers of rock music. Just like Ike Turner's death was overshadowed by his less than stable personality and domestic battery, I feel like Bo's death will be more about his glasses, hat, and the fact that lots of more famous British musicians covered him. But if you get a chance, go through some of the man's music. It's always a treat, and though I thought I've posted "Roadrunner" here before, it would seem I haven't. He did make a mix, though, and frankly I'm a little disappointed that I never got around to posting more of him. I guess that's because I stopped posting music like years ago.

The man was a giant, and I hope that his influence will continue to be felt for a long time to come.

Anyway, it's a damn shame, and I'm sorry to see him go.
