JBE concert

First off, a link to an excellent bit of their political commentary.

The concert was inspirational. I'm definitely doing some of these projects:
  • Liberals for Dummies, an honest attempt at outreach across the lines of red/blue
  • Spending the next four years of my life working to see paper trails for all voters
  • Spending the next two years of my life seeing a Democratic governor of Massachusetts elected
Also, my napkin poem got used at the concert! Poem (not very good, but very quickly written):

Red states, blue states
  never meet.
Red channels, blue channels
  remote control flyover
Red people, blue people
  have to meet.
NOW.

And he used it. I got movies, I'll upload them overnight and link in the morning. I'm pretty damn happy with how it got merged in with the other napkin poems.

Also, during the intermission, my old friend Bob from Rochester called. That was another big boost to my morale. The next four years are going to be the ones where we turn it around. We have to let the red people know who we are, why we are who we are, and how to believe us.

more words for this week, from The Offspring

Falling, I'm falling

Have you ever walked through a room
But it was more like the room passed around you
Like there was a leash around your neck that pulled you through

Have you ever been at someplace
Recognizing everybody's face
Until you realized that there was no one there you knew

Well I know

Some days, my soul's confined and out of mind
Sleep forever
Some days, I'm so outshined and out of time
Have you ever

Falling, I'm falling

Have you ever buried your face in your hands
Cause no one around you understands
Or has the slightest idea what it is that makes you be

Have you ever felt like there was more
Like someone else was keeping score
And what could make you whole was simply out of reach

Well I know

Someday I'll try again and not pretend
This time forever
Someday I'll get it straight but not today
Have you ever

Falling, I'm falling

Some days, my soul's confined and out of mind
Sleep forever
Some days, my darkest friend is me again
Have you ever
Someday I'll try again and not pretend
This time forever
Someday I'll get it straight but not today
Have you ever

When the truth walks away
Everybody stays
Cause the truth about the world is that crime does pay

So if you walk away
Who is gonna stay
Cause I'd like to think the world is a better place

When the truth walks away
Everybody stays
Cause the truth about the world is that crime does pay

So if you walk away
Who is gonna stay
Cause I'd like to make the world be a better place

When the truth walks away
Everybody stays
Cause the truth about the world is that crime does pay

So if you walk away
Who is gonna stay
Cause I'd like to think the world is a better place
I'd like to leave the world as a better place
I'd like to think the world
