It's Been Five Years And Some Change, And This World Is Getting So Strange
I have been meaning to do a post for the past few days, but I've been doing less important things, like watching that stupid-ass Barbara Walters special on ABC the other night. I already realized that this past year has been kinda fucked, but the fact that Camilla Parker Bowles was chosen to be the most fascinating person of 2005 made me seriously contemplate suicide for no less than an hour. Life really is getting dismal, isn't it?
Maybe it's just sour grapes, or some sort of twisted haterism...Admittedly, I'd like to be featured on the list next year, and I think I understand the formula that they use. All I need to do is wear a halter top on TV, defend a pedophile, fall in love with an ugly person, jump on couches, and do everything I can to destroy our country's foreign relations...I might also start practicing Scientology, because that will make me seem spiritually edgy---and hell---it just can't hurt to try:
Breath of Life has 3 excellent tracks posted this week---"Dazzlement" by Cherrywine, "Stay In My Corner" by The Dells, and "Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me" by Mary J. Blige:
Lots of free downloads are available at The Charivarious Section. Recent posts include links to albums by dead prez, Big L, Gangstarr, Mobb Deep, Talib Kweli/Mos Def, and De La Soul:

Fifteen Minutes To Listen is featuring "Love Fights Back" by 2Mex, as well as "My Mom" by Chocolate Genius (today's image and title quotation). The latter may be one of the saddest songs I've heard all year: http://15minutestolisten.blogspot.com/.
Ted Turner (founder of CNN) proclaims that George Bush may just be idiotic enough to start a nuclear war:

Televangelists are reportedly opposed to the proposition that cable consumers be allowed to create their own programming packages by selecting the specific channels they want to watch. The concern appears to be that they will lose viewers if the heathens are allowed to opt out of channels that exclusively air religious programming. As one pastor describes it, "we want to reach the unchurched". Let's remember that these are the same assholes who don't want anything darker than Disney to air on television---on network or cable TV. In other words, I should be prohibited from watching shows like Weeds or The Boondocks---instead, I must be forced to watch red-faced, bloated hypocrites preach "the word". Funk dat shit. Be a revolutionary, and shoot your fuckin' TV already---then consider it a mercy killing:
