Now that everyone is here, can I please have your attention?

I've got nothing much to say this evening other than to provide a link to this website & to post a link to this song. Christie & Danny can vouch for it, it's a great song. It's one of those songs that I think will take people 5-10 years to understand it's greatness. At least that's what I'm telling myself, anyway. Here's a link to an mp3. It's a bit out there, but it has none of that "whiny guitar" that my mother doesn't like.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah -
"Upon This Tidal Wave Of Young Blood"
Album: "Clap Your Hands Say Yeah" (2006)

How that everybody's here
Could we please have your attention?
There is nothing left to fear
No now that bigfoot is captured
But are the children really right
Alright alright

There is danger in the night
There are things we can't control but
Will we give ourselves a fright
When we become less than human?
There are people
who say why oh why oh why?
Now there are other ways to die
Oh why oh why?

But upon this tidal wave
Oh god oh god
But upon this tidal wave
Oh god oh god
Young Blood
Young Blood
Young Blood
Young Blood
Young Blood
Young Blood
Young Blood
Young Blood

We are men who stay alive
Who send your children away now
We are calling from a tower
Expressing what must be
Everyone's opinion
"They are going out to bars
and they are getting into cars
I have seen them with my own eyes."

They are child stars...

The no talent clowns that set up the internet here keep me from viewing any websites that my “distort” “normal” views on politics. I can’t even go to www.harpers.org, but Fox news in on in the chow hall. Needless to say I cant get the link to work on my end.
