Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

Saturday listening list

  • Beth Orton, Trailer Park
  • Garbage, Garbage
  • Everclear, Slow Motion Daydream -- brilliant social commentary hidden behind crunchy grunge. Led to breakup of band due to pro-Bush drummer and bassist and anti-Bush guitarist/songwriter. "Blackjack", starring a character named "Scary John", is a particular favorite (think -- John Ashcroft).

That's why you need to rip all your CD's to mp3 files and then get an iPod for when you're away from your computer.

The bassist and drummer of Everclear were pro-Bush, eh? Guess you learn something new every day. Rock'n'roll and especially punk/alternative is mostly left-leaning overall, but there's definitely more of a right-wing strain among rockers than people think -- much more so in hard rock and heavy metal than in punk or indie, granted, but still there nonetheless.

"Keep fighting for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce." -- Molly Ivins, 1944-2007 "The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."
