Too Cute

This is one of my favorite songs... even though it is being played to death on the radio. The artwork that goes with it is just too cute for words. Please to enjoy...


Seriously stop whatever you are doing right now!
Watch this video!
There is only one word to describe this... Wrenching.
I love K.D. Langs version, don't get me wrong. Vocally, in my opinion hers is unparalleled. But I haven't been moved emotionally by this song since I heard Jeff Buckley's version. This is how music is supposed to be. Raw, in your face, not always pretty. This truly is a cold and broken Hallelujah. Please to enjoy...

P.S. Thanks a million to my dear friend Matt who reads this blog and told me about Brandi singing this song.

I found my Christmas present.

This is quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen.

An Open Letter to the Red States

Thanks to Bill in Exile for this.



Dear Red States,

If you manage to steal this election too we've decided we're leaving.

We intend to form our own country, and we're taking all the Blue States with us.

In case you aren't aware, that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and all the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country of New California.

To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all of the slave states.

We get stem cell research and the best beaches.

We get the Statue of Liberty.

You get Dollywood.

We get Intel and Microsoft.

You get Papa John's Pizza.

We get Harvard.

You get Ole' Miss.

We get 85% of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs.

You get Alabama.

We get two-thirds of the tax revenue; you get to make the red states pay their fair share for the first time ever.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22% lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families.

You get a bunch of single moms.

Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and anti-war, and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once.

If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets coming home.

We do wish you success in Iraq , and hope that the WMDs turn up, but we're not willing to spend our resources in Bush's Quagmire.

With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80% of the country's fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation's fresh fruit, 95% of America's quality wines, 90% of all cheese, 90% of the high tech industry, 95% of the corn and soybeans (thanks Iowa!), most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy League and Seven Sister colleges plus Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92% of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you very much.

Additionally, 38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the war, the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

Finally, we're taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico

Peace out,

Blue States
