Eminem Mosh Video

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
And to the Republic for which it stands
One nation under God
It feels so good to be back..

I scrutinize every word, memorize every line
I spit it once, refuel and re-energize and rewind
I give sight to the blind, my insight through the mind
I exercise my right to express when I feel it's time
It's just all in your mind, what you interpret it as
I say to fight, you take it as I'mma whip someone's ass
If you don't understand, don't even bother to ask
A father who has grown up with a fatherless past
Who has blown up now to rap phenomenon that has
Or at least shows no difficulty multi-task
And in juggling both perhaps mastered his craft
Slash entrepreneur who has held onto few more rap acts
Who's had a few obstacles thrown his way through the last half
Of his career typical manure moving past that
Mr. kisses ass crack, he's a class act
Rubber band man, yea he just snaps back

Come along follow me as I lead through the darkness
As I provide just enough spark that we need to proceed
Carry on, give me hope, give me strength
Come with me and I won't steer you wrong
Put your faith and your trust as I guide us through the fog
To the light at the end of the tunnel
We gonna fight, we gonna charge, we gonna stomp, we gonna march
Through the swamp, we gonna mosh through the marsh
Take us right through the doors (c'mon)

All the people up top on the side and the middle
Come together lets all bomb and swamp just a little
Just let it gradually build from the front to the back
All you can see is a sea of people some white and some black
Don't matter what color, all that matters we gathered together
To celebrate for the same cause don't matter the weather
If it rains let it rain, yea the wetter the better
They ain't gonna stop us they can't, we stronger now more than ever
They tell us no we say yea, they tell us stop we say go
Rebel with a rebel yell, raise hell we gonna let em know
Stomp, push, shove, mush, Fuck Bush, until they bring our troops home (c'mon)


Imagine it pouring, it's raining down on us
Mosh pits outside the oval office
Someone's tryina tell us something,
Maybe this is god just sayin' we're responsible
For this monster, this coward,
That we have empowered
This is Bin Laden, look at his head noddin'
How could we allow something like this without pumping our fists
Now this is our final hour
Let me be the voice in your strength and your choice
Let me simplify the rhyme just to amplify the noise
Try to amplify the times it, and multiply by six...
Teen million people, Are equal at this high pitch
Maybe we can reach alqueda through my speech
Let the president answer a higher anarchy
Strap him with an Ak-47, let him go, fight his own war
Let him impress daddy that way
No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our own soil
No more psychological warfare, to trick us to thinking that we ain't loyal
If we don't serve our own country, we're patronizing a hero
Look in his eyes its all lies
The stars and stripes, they've been swiped, washed out and wiped
And replaced with his own face, Mosh now or die
If I get sniped tonight you know why,
Cause I told you to fight.


And as we proceed,
To Mosh through this desert storm,
In these closing statements, if they should argue
Let us beg to differ
As we set aside our differences
And assemble our own army
To disarm this Weapon of Mass Destruction
That we call our President, for the present
And Mosh for the future of our next generation
To speak and be heard
Mr. President, Mr. Senator
Do you guy's hear us...hear us...[laughing] (Hailie)

one thing I didn't know

the enigmatic "Mah Na Mah Na," (which I learned was actually first written by an Italian composer for a Swedish porn film.)

See post just below this for more.

When will they be in concert in SF?

"The Dead Hensons are a seven piece rock band exclusively covering the upbeat songs from early Jim Henson projects (mainly Sesame Street, the Muppet Show, and the Muppet Movie). The songs themselves range from a stripped down spooky storytelling jazz-based style, to early seventies soul and funk dance music, to giddy sixties go-go rock n'roll. The live set relies heavily on letting the music speak for itself and incoporates many instrument changes. The result is a room full of 21 to 40 year olds singing along and dancing shamelessly, as if once again in front of the tube when they were 5. The Dead Hensons are musical comfort food: a PB&J with the crusts cut off; fudgicles on a sunny saturday afternoon."

A rapturous novel of sapphic love - by Lynne Cheney?!?!

here's an excerpt of a review:
to understand why Lynne Cheney's throbbing pudenda compelled her to write this novel more than two decades ago. As directed by the Commander in Chief, the White House gynecologist has since infibulated the author. Yet potent testimony of the intensity of gratified female desire remains between the well-thumbed pages of the few yellowing copies of "Sisters" that have not been purchased and burned by Attorney General John Ashcroft and his staff members.

Putting the Foot Down

It's late on a Friday night and I'm sitting home alone propping my eyelids open because I have to drive to SF airport to pick up Jane. I'm not doing this again. She's on a trip for work and they'll reimburse her for her cab home.

For some reason Jane thinks it's romantic for me to pick her up from her business trips. No - it's not. It's far from sweet, romantic & loving. Especially since I took her to the airport at 6AM just one day ago.

The one thing I appreciate about the security changes since 9/11 is that I'm not allowed to meet her at the gate. Jane's a gate-meeter person. My family is a curb outside of bagage claim people. Now I have to stay in my car driving around the terminal!

Honey - this is not a sign of affection and devotion you will see again. No more! Take a cab. Your company sent you away - they can foot the bill to get you home.

Sorry, I'm tired and ranting. But I'm telling the truth.

I promise to pick you up anytime you have a social trip.

Do you think we'll see "humor" re: Iraq in 50 years

disclaimer: I didn't write this... I'm not sure I support the beliefs that are behind it. But it's another angle and another look at history

how CBS, ABC, and NBC would report the events of D-Day, the 6th of June, 1944, if they happened today:
June 6, 1944. -NORMANDY-
Three hundred French civilians were killed and thousands more wounded today in the first hours of America's invasion of continental Europe. Casualties were heaviest among women and children.

Most of the French casualties were the result of artillery fire from American ships attempting to knock out German fortifications prior to the landing of hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops. Reports from a makeshift hospital in the French town of St. Mere Eglise said the carnage was far worse than the French had anticipated and reaction against the American invasion was running high.

"We are dying for no reason," said a Frenchman speaking on condition of anonymity. "Americans can't even shoot straight. I never thought I'd say this, but life was better under Adolph Hitler."

The invasion also caused severe environmental damage. American troops, tanks, trucks and machinery destroyed miles of pristine shoreline and thousands of acres of ecologically sensitive wetlands. It was believed that the habitat of the spineless French crab was completely wiped out, threatening the species with extinction.

A representative of Greenpeace said his organization, which had tried to stall the invasion for over a year, was appalled at the destruction, but not surprised.

"This is just another example of how the military destroys the environment without a second thought, " said Christine Moanmore. "And it's all about corporate greed."

Contacted at his Manhattan condo, a member of the French government-in-exile who abandoned Paris when Hitler invaded said the invasion was based solely on American financial interests. "Everyone knows the President Roosevelt has ties to big beer," said Pierre LeWimp. "Once the German beer industry is conquered, Roosevelt's beer cronies will control the world market and make a fortune."

Administration supporters said America's aggressive actions were based in part on the assertions of controversial scientist Albert Einstein, who sent a letter to Roosevelt speculating that the Germans were developing a secret weapon, a so-called "atomic bomb." Such a weapon could produce casualties on a scale never seen before and cause environmental damage that could last for thousands of years.

Hitler has denied having such a weapon and international inspectors were unable to locate such weapons even after spending two long weekends in Germany.

Several thousand Americans died during the first hours of the invasion and French officials are concerned that uncollected corpses pose a public health risk. "The Americans should have planned for this in advance," they said. "It's their mess and we don't intend to clean it up."

A Historical Marker In My Live

Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam - Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument

For some it was when Kennedy was shot. Since I was born a decade later the eruption of Mt St Helens is my marker of big historic moments. I remember where I was and I think this is the first time I became aware of the news of the world around me. I was in fourth grade in Mrs Lawrence's class at Wildwood Elementry School. We watched it on the news..

So over this past weekend this marker in my life became an eye opener to me of "how old I am" and a reminder that I am blessed to have friends of all ages.

I was out to dinner on Sunday in NYC with Craunifer. I hadn't seen the news and wondered if I missed a report of the new activity on the volcano. This conversation actually took place
Me: So have you seen the news? Has St. Helens erupted yet?
Craun: I dunno, where is that?
Me: Up near Seattle... wait - what year were you born?
Craun: 1980
Me: *blink - blink - silence*
Craun: blank look....
Me: I guess I'm old and you have no idea what I'm talking about.
