Thought of the Day

You ever meet one of those idiots who shaves and/or brushes their teeth in the shower because they think it saves water? What kind of simpleton thinks running the shower for the duration it takes to shave and/or brush your teeth uses less water than the faucet does in the few short periods it's running while those tasks are being performed?

Quote of the Day

The world must be filled with unsuccessful musical careers like mine, and it's probably a good thing. We don't need a lot of bad musicians filling the air with unnecessary sounds. Some of the professionals are bad enough. - Andy Rooney

Song of the Day

Title: Australia
Artist: The Shins
Album: Wincing the Night Away



Born to multiply or born to gaze into night skies,
When all you want's one more Saturday
But look here, until then
They're gonna buy your life's time
So keep your wick in the air and your feet in the fetters
To the day
We come in doing cartwheels
We all crawl out by ourselves
And your shape on the dance floor
Will have me thinking such filth and gouge my eyes

You'd be damned to be one of us girl
Faced with a dodo's conundrum
Ah, I felt like I could just fly
But nothing happened every time I tried

A dual tone under wall
The selfless fool who hoped he'd save us all
He never dreamt of such sterile hands,
You keep them folded in your lap,
Or raise them up to beg for scraps,
You know, he's holding you down,
With the tips of his fingers just the same,
Will you be pulled from the ocean,
But just a minute too late,
Or changed by a potion,
And find a handsome young mate,
For you to love

You'll be damned to pining through the windowpanes,
You know you'd trade your life for any ordinary Joe's,
Well do it now or grow old,
Your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold

Been alone since you were twenty-one,
You haven't laughed since January,
You try and make like this is so much fun,
But we know it to be quite contrary

Dare to be one of us, girl,
Facing the android's conundrum,
Ah, I feel like I should just cry,
But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin,
Yeah, Himmler in your coat,
You don't know how long I've been,
Watching the lantern dim,
Starved of oxygen,
So give me your hand,
And let's jump out the window

Artist of the Day

Sam Taylor-Wood, 1967-present, British photographer

Thought of the Day

It's highly amusing that our country has a fat woman serving as the Surgeon General. Since we decided to make a mockery of the medical field, why not do the same with law and appoint Judge Judy as our Chief Justice? How about Bernie Madoff as the Secretary of the Treasury?

Quote of the Day

Ideas are elusive, slippery things. Best to keep a pad of paper and a pencil at your bedside, so you can stab them during the night before they get away. - Earl Nightingale

Song of the Day

Title: Don't Believe the Hype
Artist: Public Enemy
Album: It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back



Back - caught you lookin' for the same thing
It's a new thing - check out this I bring
Uh-oh the roll below the level
'Cause I'm livin' low 
Next to the bass (c'mon)
Turn up the radio
They claim that I'm a criminal
By now I wonder how
Some people never know
The enemy could be their friend, guardian
I'm not a hooligan
I rock the party and
Clear all the madness, I'm not a racist
Preach to teach to all
'Cause some they never had this
Number one, not born to run
About the gun
I wasn't licensed to have one
The minute they see me, fear me
I'm the epitome - a public enemy
Used, abused, without clues
I refused to blow a fuse
They even had it on the news
Don't believe the hype

Don't believe he hype [4x]

Yes - was the start of my last jam
So here it is again, another def jam
But since I gave you all a little something
That we knew you lacked
They still consider me a new jack
All the critics you can hang 'em
I'll hold the rope
But they hope to the Pope
And pray it ain't dope
The follower of Farrakhan
Don't tell me that you understand
Until you hear the man
The book of the new school rap game
Writers treat me like Coltrane, insane
Yes to them, but to me I'm a different kind
We're brothers of the same mind, unblind
Caught in the middle and
Not surrenderin'
I don't rhyme for the sake of riddlin'
Some claim that I'm a smuggler
Some say I never heard of ya
A rap burgler, false media
We don't need it do we?
It's fake that's what it be to ya, dig me?
Yo, Terminator X, step up on the stand and show the people what time it is
Boyyyyyyyy

Don't believe the hype [5x]

Don't believe the hype - its a sequel
As an equal, can I get this through to you
My 98's boomin' with a trunk of funk
All the jealous punks can't stop the dunk
Comin' from the school of hard knocks
Some perpetrate, they drink Clorox
Attack the black, 'cause I know they lack exact
The cold facts, and still they try to xerox
The leader of the new school, uncool
Never played the fool, just made the rules
Remember there's a need to get alarmed
Again I said I was a timebomb
In the daytime the radio's scared of me
'Cause I'm mad, 'cause I'm the enemy
They can't come on and play me in primetime
'Cause I know the time, plus I'm gettin' mine
I get on the mix late in the night
They know I'm livin' right, so here go the mike, psych
Before I let it go, don't rush my show
You try to reach and grab and get elbowed
Word to Herb, yo if you can't swing this
Learn the words, you might sing this
Just a little bit of the taste of the bass for you
As you get up and dance at the LQ
When some deny it, defy it, I swing bolos
Then they clear the lane, I go solo
The meaning of all of that
Some media is the wack
As you believe it's true 
It blows me through the roof
Suckers, liars, get me a shovel
Some writers I know are damn devils
For them I say, "Don't believe the hype"
Yo Chuck, they must be on a pipe, right?
Their pens and pads I'll snatch
'Cause I've had it
I'm not an addict, fiendin' for static
I'll see their tape recorder and grab it
No, you can't have it back, silly rabbit
I'm going to my media assassin
Harry Allen, I gotta ask him
Yo Harry, you're a writer, are we that type?
Don't believe the hype
Don't believe the hype

Thought of the Day

If baseball players can be drafted out of high school, and no one seems to be opposed to it, then why must basketball players be at least one year removed from high school to be drafted in the NBA?

Quote of the Day

It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds. - Samuel Adams

Song of the Day

Title: Race for the Prize
Artist: The Flaming Lips
Album: Soft Bulletin



Two scientists were racing
For the good of all mankind
Both of them side by side
So determined
Locked in heated battle
For the cure that is their prize
But it's so dangerous
But they're determined

[Chorus]

Theirs is to win
If it kills them
They're just humans
With wives and children

Upwards to the vanguard
Where the pressure is too high
Under the microscope
Hope against hope

Forging for the future
But to sacrifice their lives
Both of them side by side
So determined

[Chorus 2x]

Artist of the Day

Thomas Hart Benton, 1889-1975, American painter

Title: Suicide
Artist: Redman feat. Blam
Album: Red Gone Wild: Thee Album





[Intro: Redman (Blam)]
Gilla, yeah
Man, fuck that, nigga
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yes, sir
Gilla House
You already know the business, nigga
Gilla House, nigga

[Verse 1: Redman]
Yo, you ain't gotta' ask, dog - who am I?
I walk in the street, my middle finger in the sky
And ever since a young boy, I had the hunger in my eye
So when you cut the check, if you don't gimmie mine

[Chorus: Blam]
It's a - suicide, it's a suicide
It's a - suicide, it's a suicide
It's do or die
If you want that grit
And you're about the dough
Better do it like a G, baby!

[Bridge: Redman (Blam)]
They call me crazzzzzzzzzay
I walk around like I just don't care
Once you get a grip
If I have to, I'll grab my fifth
And throw shit up, put your hands in the air
I'm a liiiiiiiiiiiiive wiiiiiiiiiiire
(Gilla goodie with the glamour)
(Now it's time to bust)
(Know what it is, when you're fuckin' wit' us)

[Chorus: Blam]
It's a - suicide, it's a suicide
It's a - suicide, it's a suicide
It's do or die
Suicide, it's a suicide
It's do or die - suicide, it's a suicide
Suicide, it's a suicide
It's a - suicide, it's a suicide
It's do or die
If you want that grit
And you're about the dough
Better do it like a G, baby

[Verse 2: Redman]
Redman, "Bak Inda Buildin'" - yes
I got strippers on the pole
They like "Aiiiiiyyyo"
Nigga, I got flow
My jewels is drippin'
All on the nuts, 'cause I do shit different
Doc is chillin', Jerz is chillin'
What can I say - fuck your feelings
Dog, if you broke, you got it wrong
I'm tryna be "Paid In Full" like Mitch's home, nigga
Ring the alarm, Redman crack
And if you get sleepy, then go take a nap
My boys in the 'Lac, I'm right there wit' 'em
They ask, "What's that?"
"This shit here, nigga?"
"This shit here, nigga?"
This shit called Def - Squad, proceed to rock your project
You far from a threat like "Who is you?"
Better relax and say "What's up, baby boo?"

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

[Verse 3: Redman]
Understand that Gilla House
"Bak Inda Buildin'" - yes
If you can't get a job, I feel your stress
You can smell the "Funk," when the "Master Flex"
It's underground, nigga - "Protect Ya Neck"
Yeah, Bricks is chillin', Staten chillin'
What can we say - fuck your feelings
Big girls like "Redman the shit"
I had dreams of fuckin' me a fat chick (Bee-atch)
Let's do this, "Red Gone Wild"
I'm like a warrior tryna get to Coney Isle
Boy, I'm hood down, so don't try to play me
For that "C.R.E.A.M." I get a little
Crazzzzzzzzzzzzay
Yeah, my attitude is rude like "Fuck you, pay me"
Stay on my grind
I'll show you how to make 100 thou' from a dime
Fuckin' wit' mine
It's a - suicide

Thought of the Day

The crime of "disturbing the peace" seems a bit of a misnomer to me. It presumes the normal state of things is peaceful, which is most often not the case. I think the crime should be changed to "augmenting the disarray."

Quote of the Day

To pin your hopes upon the future is to consign those hopes to a hypothesis, which is to say, a nothingness. Here and now is what we must contend with. - Angela Carter

May I come in?

Oh I know we're gonna make it tonight 
Tomorrow will be alright 
Let go 
Let go 
And I know we're gonna make it tonight 
Tomorrow will be alright 
Let go 
Let go 

So take a breath 
My dear friend 
Take it slow 
And let go 
And rise again 
You're not done yet 
I know 
Let go

It's interesting that the region of the world which provides the setting for the primary texts of the three major religions has been the most tumultuous region in the world for many years now.

Song of the Day

Title: 1901
Artist: Phoenix
Album: Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix





Counting all different ideas drifting away
Past and present they don’t matter
Now the future’s sorted out
Watch her moving in elliptical patterns
Think it’s not what you say
What you say is way too complicated
For a minute thought I couldn’t tell how to fall out

It’s twenty seconds till the last call
You’re going hey hey hey hey hey hey
Lie down you know it’s easy
Like we did it over summer long

And I’ll be anything you ask and more
You’re going hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
It’s not a miracle we needed
No I wouldn’t let you think so

Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it
Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it

Girlfriend, oh your girlfriend is drifting away
Past and present 1855-1901
Watch them built up a material tower
Think it’s not gonna stay anyway
Think it’s overrated
For a minute thought I couldn’t tell how to fall out

It’s twenty seconds till the last call
You’re going hey hey hey hey hey hey
Lie down you know it’s easy
Like we did it over summer long

And I’ll be anything you ask and more
You’re going hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
It’s not a miracle we needed
No I wouldn’t let you think so

Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it
Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it
Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it
Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it

Song of the Day

Title: No One Knows
Artist: Queens of the Stone Age
Album: Songs for the Deaf



We get some rules to follow
That and this
These and those
No one knows

We get these pills to swallow
How they stick
In your throat
Tastes like gold

Oh, what you do to me
No one knows

[Chorus]

And I realize you're mine
Indeed a fool am I
And I realize you're mine
Indeed a fool am I
Ahh

I journey through the desert
Of the mind
With no hope
I follow

I drift along the ocean
Dead lifeboats 
In the sun 
They come undone

Pleasently caving in
I come undone

[Chorus]



Heaven smiles above me
What a gift here below
But no one knows

The gift that you give to me
No one knows
