Then click this link for a great read on what the music biz is all about, circa 2010. Then click this link to re-watch the video on YouTube so OK Go can achieve 50 zillion hits.

Not as great as the groundbreaking treadmills or even the previous video from their new album but you've got to give these guys credit for making music videos interesting again.

 

Thanks Massachusetts!

Hope you're happy with Senator Centerfold...

5 for 5



45


I always thought it was cool to have been born in the first month of the first year of a new decade. For one thing, it was always easy to remember exactly how old I was (this has become less cool over the years).


lp


The other great thing was being able to measure my life by decades and, by extension, the music of each decade.


cassette


Being born when I was always seemed to be a blessing culturally: I was able to experience the sixties without having to get lost in them and I was able to go to college during the height of the punk and new wave movements (I slightly remember getting lost in them).


cd


There is no doubt that the music of the past five decades has had a profound effect on me, informing to some extent my politics and to a large extent my aesthetic tastes.


ipod


By clicking on any of the above images, you can hear 25 songs from the past 5 decades (who knows where the time goes?*). I tried not to think too much about putting the mix together and, of course, there are a ton of omissions (picking 5 great songs from each decade is an impossible task at best) but I think it's a pretty good overview of what types of songs turned me on decade by decade.

Enjoy!

Peace, Love & Understanding,

Krup


5 decades


*a great song, unfortunately not included.

Best Quote (so far) from the new book, "Game Change"


John McCain to his lovely wife Cindy:
“FUCK YOU! FUCK, FUCK, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck!!”
Because she interrupted him.

Now can we forget about the Harry Reid nonsense?

Chris Matthews Sticks It To The Party Of "No"


The so-called liberal media has been going apeshit over how the Democrats are clearly in trouble because of the "surprise twin" Senate retirement announcements yesterday, while generally ignoring these simple facts: 15 GOP House members are retiring/not seeking re-election vs. 12 Dem House members. 6 GOP Senators are leaving by choice vs. 2 Dem Senators. And 5 GOP governors are stepping down vs. 3 Dems.

Republicans are currently gloating ("giggling like the Easter Bunny" according to Chris Matthews), citing President Obama's drop in approval ratings and using the Ft. Hood and Underwear Bomber attacks as a political issue to defeat the Dems in the 2010 elections (classy).

Fortunately, Matthews has decided enough with the bullshit:

via The Huffington Post:
What have the Republicans done for America lately? Or in the past couple decades?

That's what Chris Matthews pressed Republican strategist Todd Harris about during Hardball on Wednesday.

Matthews repeatedly asked for examples, while citing negative examples like Bush-era spending bills, Katrina, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Harris tried to keep the focus on the 2010 elections and expressed hope that Democrats would keep going after Bush so the GOP could stay on message about being a balance against the current Democratic leadership.

Matthews suggested one answer, which Harris latched onto. "The Bush administration kept the country safe," said the guest.

"Except the one big day," the host shot back.

"YouTube is watching," he told Harris. "You're the Republican consultant. One of the best in the country. Tell me what the Republican party has done for this country in the last ten to 20 years."

Harris stayed silent.


"Thank you," Matthews said to his recurring GOP guest as he closed the segment.
Thank you Chris. Not only is the Republican Party the Party of No but clearly also The Party of Nothing. Here's the final exchange quoted above:
