everything you ever wanted to know about nothing at all...

let me see the colts, that will run next year...

I took this picture & I'm quite proud of it.

I've been a political junkie lately, & I'm not really too proud of it. Maybe it's because there's not much on television between the hours of 8 & 9 when I typically watch. People watch this election garbage like it's sport, myself included. I switch between CNN, MSNBC & Fox News. They're all pretty transparent, one look & you can easily tell whose side each one is on.

They were talking about Mitt Romney's speech about faith today. This business about politics & faith annoys me to no end. Perhaps I'm a bit cynical, but I don't really want to know about a politician's faith. Maybe I'd like to know about it after they are elected or after their term is over. This is a time, I think, when actions are much, much louder than words, kind of like that song "they'll know we are Christians by our love". I wish I could take people at their word, but I can't help but think that people use their faith for political gain as a child would use a friend to get to their toys.

Enough of my soap box.

In honor of my beautiful bride to be, a song:

I wanted to post Cosmia by Joanna Newsom, but I figured that wouldn't be too nice.

Five Favorite Songs of the Day

Let Me See the Colts-Smog, A River Ain't Too Much To Love

Cosmia-Joanna Newsom, Y's

Splendid Isolation-Warren Zevon

I Just Don't Know What to do with Myself-The White Stripes, Elephant

Strange Fruit-Billie Holiday

Happy Thursday, friends. Don't follow leaders & watch the parking meters...

I was thinking the same thing today with all that talk about who the "Evangelicals" are going to support. Talk is cheap, actions a little more expensive. It'll be interesting to watch that's for sure.

Aww! I do love that song, and Sarah McLaughlin for that matter. Thank you for not posting Joanna, although I wouldnt have listened to it if you had. :)

It's more like a child using their toys to gain friends. Billie Holiday, absolutely.

Sarah has a magnificent voice--
I wanted to hear what Mit Romney had to say about his Mormonism, but I didn't get the chance. Is he using it, dismissing it, or trying to win converts?

Love Sarah McLaughlin - I own the Starbuck Christmas CD - bought it for Matt and kept it. She sings "I heard the Bells" - Have a good weekend
