MCCAIN: What is this? (turns laptop around to show a youtube video)
PALIN: Well, you know, they asked me one of those "gotcha" questions there, John.
MCCAIN: "Gotcha" my ass! That question came from a goddamn third grader!
PALIN: Oh, John, that was NBC, they probably tipped that kid off --
MCCAIN: We sent you to boot camp for a MONTH! You were supposed to learn about how government works! What did you learn?
PALIN: Well, to answer that question, I think I need to talk about Alaska and how we provide 20% of America's energy. You see --
MCCAIN: That subject change thing wasn't supposed to be your ONLY STRATEGY!
PALIN: Do you mean "tactic"?
MCCAIN: Whatever! I'm not that train-riding Biden; you can't "change the subject" your way out of this! How is it that you still think that the Vice President is in charge of the Senate?
PALIN: But he's got that gavel there, like a judge, I just thought...
MCCAIN: I DON'T WANT YOU TO THINK! I just need you to go out there and bring up Ayers like we talked about. Rouse the rabble!
PALIN: Well, sorry John, I'm just tryin' to be more mavericky.
MCCAIN: Get out of here! Go back and crack open that Social Studies book, because it's obvious you haven't done what I told you. You're grounded from interviews again until you can tell me aout the checks and balances.
(PALIN leaves, still visibly confused about what she did wrong.)
MCCAIN, under breath: Horseshit. This is a nucular meltdown.
i attended (and played at the celebration show of) stAllio! & Virago's wedding yesterday. in addition to meeting cool people, playing a set i can be proud of, and seeing other cool sets (more on those later), the reception band was a great trio who played cello, mandolin, and a drum.
most surprising was near the end, when they pulled out a gem: daler mehndi's "tunak tunak tun".
Stock, Aitkin and Waterman, however, are kings of writing chorus lyrics that go straight to the emotional heart of the 7" single buying girls in this country. Their most successful records will kick into the chorus with a line which encapsulates the entire emotional meaning of the song. This will obviously be used as the title.
As soon as Rick Astley hit the first line of the chorus on his debut single it was all over - the Number One position was guaranteed:
"I'm never going to give you up"
It says it all. It's what every girl in the land whatever her age wants to hear her dream man tell her. Then to follow that line with:
"I'm never gonna let you down I'm never going to fool around or upset you"
I'm only partway through it, but it's already got that diverse Z-Trip library, with not only the requisite Public Enemy, Jello Biafra, and Saul Williams tracks making an appearance, but also quite a few things you wouldn't expect (Nu Shooz, for example), plus a healthy dose of Obama speeches to boot.
DJ Z-Trip was a huge influence on me as a dj (particularly with his collaboration mixs "Uneasy Listening" and "Live at Future Primitive Vol 2" also available on his d/l page). Those who know me or have spoken to me about anything remotely related to politics will know that I'm an Obama supporter as well, so I'm pleased to see this.
