on apes, radiowaves, and the US presidential race...

"One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn't belong... can you tell me which thing is not like the others, by the time I finish my song?"

Call it a cheap shot, call it what you will, quite frankly it doesn't matter anymore because in less than a week, the United States will have a new president elect. The only thing scarier than that, would be if they didn't.
I wonder if the survivors of the apocalypse will drag themselves out of the wreckage, and surveying the scorched, barren, wasteland that was once their home, proclaim November 2nd, 2004 "the beginning of the end"?

Back to being happy, the radio gods have been smiling down on me lately. I've been getting awesome playlists all around. Not only brand-new stuff either, I've been hearing Tears for Fears, a little Mellancamp, and tons of Queen. The other day, driving home from school, I listened to Near Fantastica, then switched over to the Edge, who started up Everything is Automatic. When that finished, I switched to another station, and got Alert Status Red. Avalanche, Underdogs, and White Light. It was a trifecta of Matty Good-ness.

...

Remember the Simpson's episode, where Troy Mclure (Phil Hartman, oh how we miss you) and Selma get married, and everyone goes to the theater to see him as "the human" in the Planet of the Apes Musical? Good? Okay, now download Rock Me Amadeus, by Falco. Laughter will ensue. Trust me.


And they all breathed a sigh of relief as he quietly left the building...
