Quoted in Entertainment Weekly:
"For a fun second-term drinking game, chug a beer every time you hear the phrase 'contentious but futile protest vote by Democrats.' By the time Jeb Bush is elected, you'll be so wasted you won't even notice the war in Syria."
- Jon Stewart on The Daily Show
It has recently come to my attention that I've been remiss in my musical shout-outs for 2004. I'm not sure why I forgot to include The Concretes self-titled album, but it shoulda been in my top 10. It rocks in a drowsy way that's nearly impossible to resist. Perhaps forgetting to include it is a sign that I buy too many albums. Another indicator of that likely fact is that I was admiring a song in a Target commercial, wondering who did it. Yesterday I realized it was on said The Concretes album. *Sigh*
In other music news, Inara George's beautifully bittersweet album All Rise is this year's Sea Change judging by the frequency of its rotation in my sound system and its similar potency in getting under my skin and fitting my state of mind.
