Friday Primus

Phantom Patriot

Les Claypool, Of Whales and Woe, Prawn Song Records

I searched long and hard to the right bit of Claypool for today. Would it be Primus, Frog Brigade, C2B3, or his solo project, Of Whales and Woe?

I thought about Tommy the Cat, almost went with it, but this new piece just kicks ass, and not all that is bass slapping is Primus.

Rude Pundit has it right

The Rude One nails the whole prank meme that the far right is trying to push onto the media re Foley/Predatorgate. 10 ways to prank a child predator. My fave...
6. You can ask him to open a can of peanuts in the Rotunda. When cloth snakes come springing out and make him scream, he will still be a child predator.
Love it.

Friday Primus

Southbound Pachyderm

Double meaning here...

The GOP is going down, with the double anchors of Foley and Hastert, while the original purpose of the song is to point out the plight of endangered species.

Update: Time Magazine agrees with me...

Sci Fi Friday

If you didn't see Doctor Who, then, well, you are either unlucky, like my wife (stuck dogsitting in a house without cable), or you suck. I'm loving the new story arc. If you watched much of the original Doctor, you know that the Doctor was a friend of the crown, working with the UN organization called UNIT. Now the Doctor is an enemy of the UK, with the Torchwood Institute turning this on it's head.

And if you missed the Season 3 starter of Battlestar Galactica... Wow. Suicide bombers. Torture. Arrests in the night. An Abu Ghraib like prison No Habeus Corpus. No charges. Summary executions. Fundamentalists. Anybody working as security forces were called collaberators. Security forces having to live in secret. Puppet regimes where uncooperative presidents can be replaced. High placed government insiders working with the insurgency.

Every occupied territory from 1940s Paris to Iraq. No punches pulled. I bet the it won't make Pretzel night at the White house this year either.

Incredible. Americablog's thoughts here. Here's a good rundown if you missed it.
