The musicality of my surroundings

Another absurd tempest in a teapot, but this one has kind of an awesome side. There's been the usual grousing about liberal media bias, as if the drummer for a late night talk show was NBC's chief opinion-maker. Conservative persecution complexes haven't gotten any more interesting over the years.

But everyone who's offended is spreading the word about fishbone. Without some knowledge of their work, the music is just a tight little jingle, which is why Bachman herself showed no reaction to it during the show. So there's no such thing as bad publicity here. Not that Fishbone would consider it bad publicity. As sort of confirmed here, I doubt Angelo Moore would piss on her if she were on fire, unless he really needed to take a piss.

So much of the stuff they're feeding people is unbelievable garbage. Ever wondered why they call what's on tv 'programming'?

Meanwhile, there's some heavy military buildup going on off the coast of Syria but nothing in the major news.

Apologies. I hope you're having a nice Thanksgiving.

Good observation on programming. George Carlin's "It's called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it" seems pretty relevant these days too.

It was a nice Thanksgiving, though. Kind of a beautiful time of year if you take the time to look at it.
