That you are fuckin' brilliant?

No, I mean seriously...

I know, I know, this isn't a diary.  So rate me down.  Go ahead, I dare you!

Well, wait a minute...maybe it could be a diary.

I mean, have you ever considered how brilliant you really are?  Think about it.  There is a lot of effin' brainpower on this bleeping excuse for a website.  You fuckin' elected a President of the United States.  Well, not single-handedly, mind you, but you had sometin' to do wid it.  No, no aw'shyckins around here - admit it.  You are f'in brilliant.  You worked your asses off, and you elected a 60 seat majority in the Senate, and you got us about 50 or 60 votes ahead in the House as well.  This hasn't happened since about 1978 or so - like 30 years ago.  And it happened right after we went through the most heinously fascistic regime - spell it out - R E G I M E in the whole history of the goddamned republic.  Look what you did!!!!!!

So all I want you to do is to take a bow, pat yourself on the back, and keep on making it happen.

Not only that, but we are all of a sudden starting to hear some god-damned good music again!

I can hardly believe it - yes - it's true.  I've been waiting the better part of 25 years to hear a whole series of good albums all come out at once.  Maybe the last time I remember was when Roxy Music was still together and then the B52s and Bowie and the Talking Heads all came out with new music at the same time that was great.

If you don't know about the tunes I'm talking about, here are some clues:

The Alternate Side 90.7 FM WFUV thealternateside.org

f'kng awesome bands:

the shins
the veils
grizzly bear
fleet foxes
decemberists
camera obscura

...to name a few

If you haven't heard of them, get off yer bleepin' behind and check them out !

Put them in your ipod and mix in some good dixie chicks, mebbe a little roseanne cash, radiohead, the vervs, scissor sisters, yeah- go back and mix in some divinyls or bow wow wow.

Get your ya'ya's off - before it's too late.  We might have to wait 30 more years before there's another music scene like there is RIGHT NOW - THIS SUMMER !

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
