Amusing Ourselves to Death

Let it be noted for the historical record that today, with amazing news being made by the first African-American president elect of the United States, that it is this song that preoccupies our noble Republic.

Incidentally, did anybody see last night's episode of Family Guy? Apart from the funniest first act in history -- centered around Peter becoming obsessed with the Trashmen's single "Surfing Bird" -- in the second act Jesus Christ returned to earth and became a presenter at the Grammys.

Jesus: "And the award for the Biggest Posse goes to..."

Madonna (in audience): "What?"

Jesus: "No, Madonna...biggest posse!"

Huzzah! It appears we've finally reached the apex of idiocy.

And, in fact, the best joke in last night's Family Guy was the takeoff on the "Marshall McLuhan" scene in Annie Hall with Jesus in McLuhan part and GWB as the blowhard on the ticket line.

Ya know, that video, I am not a fan, but the girl used to snap her moves, and now she sluffs into them. She is physically not moving the same.

The Woody Allen gag was pretty good, I'll give you that.

Did not see Family Guy. Did see the Trashmen for my first time ever (in Saint Paul). Also Davie Allan, the Neanderthals and 99ers. A fun night for scenesters.

I'm with you. She's a pre-packaged piece of pre-teen pop and always has been but at least she USED to shake it. Now it's like watching an old flea ridden dancing bear at the circus going through the motions just so it can get the food reward.

Psychtropic drugs tend to fuck with your ability to move with any coordination so give Britney a break.

So A-Rod is into Madonna's Posse! Hope it helps him hit in the clutch.
