Crazy! I was just thinking today "What should Obama's inauguration night theme be?" Haven't figured out a good answer to that yet.

Pop Obama Mix:
1. Public Enemy, "Don't Believe the Hype"
2. Living Colour, "Cult of Personality"
3. Sam and Dave, "Soul Man"
4. Faith Petric, "Ain't Done Nothin' if You Ain't Been Called A Red"
5. Sly and the Family Stone, "Everyday People"
6. Bob Dylan, "The Mighty Quinn"
7. The Clash, "I'm So Bored With the USA"
8. Prince Buster, "A Change Is Gonna Come"
9. Serge Gainsbourg, "Je t'aime... moi non plus"
10. The Teddy Bears, "To Know Him is To Love Him"
11. Peter Tosh, "African"
12. Mary Hopkin, "Those Were the Days"
13. Phil Ochs, "Power and the Glory"
14. The Supremes, "I Hear A Symphony"

It's Canadian, though.

the car's on fire and there's no driver at the wheel
and the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides
and a dark wind blows

the government is corrupt
and we're on so many drugs
with the radio on and the curtains drawn

we're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine
and the machine is bleeding to death

the sun has fallen down
and the billboards are all leering
and the flags are all dead at the top of their poles

it went like this:

the buildings tumbled in on themselves
mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble
and pulled out their hair

the skyline was beautiful on fire
all twisted metal stretching upwards
everything washed in a thin orange haze

i said: "kiss me, you're beautiful -
these are truly the last days"

you grabbed my hand and we fell into it
like a daydream or a fever

we woke up one morning and fell a little further down -
for sure it's the valley of death

i open up my wallet
and it's full of blood

In the event of a loss, or a "loss," Peter Tosh's "You Can't Fool Me Again" would have to be involved.

If McCain winss:


THE DUST BLOWS FORWARD AND THE DUST BLOWS BACK

there's old gray with her dovewinged hat
there's old green with her sewing machine
where's the bobbin at?
she's toting old grain in a printed sack
the dust blows forward and the dust blows back
and the wind blows black through the sky
and the smokestack blows up in the sun's eye
what am i gonna die?
a white flake riverboat just blew by
bubbles pop big
and a lipstick kleenex hung on a pointed forked twig
reminds me of the bobby girls
never was my hobby girls
hand full of worms and a pole fishing
cork bobbing like a hot red bulb
and a blue jay squeaks
his beak open an inch above a creek
gone fishing for a week,
well i put down my bush
and i took off my pants and felt free
the breeze blowing up me and up the canyon
far as i could see
it's night now and the moon looks like a dandelion
it's black now and the blackbirds feeding on rice
and his red wings look like diamonds and lice
i could hear the mice toes scampering
gophers rumbling in pile crater rock holes
one red bean stuck in the bottom of a tin bowl
hot coffee from a krimpt up can
me and my girl named bimbo limbo spam

Election/RNC/political threadjack:

For them as is interested, the Indymedia/Glass Bead Collective documentary about the RNC protests, Terrorizing Dissent, is up. Looks decent enough as far as I've gotten. I am not featured, as far as I can tell, although various pals and political acquaintances make an appearance. Our local Indymedia is actually composed of maybe three very dedicated people who do yeoman's work to keep the site up.

My election soundtrack--the Buzzkill version:

"Coup", by 23 Skiddoo.
"King of America", Elvis Costello.
"Only Anarchists Are Pretty", World-Inferno Friendship Society.
The Dog-Faced Hermans song that goes "Welcome, welcome, I will give you the freedom of my own home/Between the hours of five and six/And you may butter your bread on one side only, on one side only". "Born in Flames", Red Krayola.
"Off of the races and onto the tracks", The Rapture. "Snow", Mekons ("The burnt out homes/of left wing names/tell us all where/power remains")
"The Building", also Mekons ("We stand by the building/in the pouring rain/and the premier bows, he's cutting the tape/We hear the speech, we hear golden rules/and we bow to republic, employer and god/The planes dip wings in victory rolls/They salute the power that the building shows/We're innocent until they prove us not/but we hide and we worry and we look away."

"Baby What You Want Me To Do", Etta James.

91: Glad to hear you figured it out, Sifu. Was actually away from the computer for a bit, oddly enough.

Apologies for any imperfections on the sequencing / album naming in my mix, I just discovered them.

98: Hooray! Witness The Power Of Shame!

First of all, stop with all the "if"-ing. Absent one of helpy-chalk's scenarios, we're going to win. Present one of them, people in fucking North Dakota are going to burn shit down.

Second of all, for a blog full of rational atheists who deprecate magical thinking, there's a pathetic amount of baseball- and election-related superstition around here.

I'll stop with the "if"-ing when Obama actually beat the vote-suppression/Diebold advantage.

107: I hear you, but I just think the numbers will be too overwhelming in too many states to allow the Rs to cheat enough to win. I have been wrong about one or two things in the past, however.

Yes, it was but the comments section hadn't really hit puberty.

Still, read that page from the bottom up. Agony!

111: Yeah, the suspense over whether or not ogged was gonna hit it off with the redheaded volunteer was killing us at the time.

I bet you were wondering if Ogged was ever going to get to kick that football, too.

Amen.

People are getting a little too paranoid. Relax the buttclench until next week, at least. Seriously, no point to it until then.

As for mixes, I had been thinking of putting together a Skinny Puppy mix ("cEVIN KEY is dead"), because, uh, I just felt like it, actually. However, if I go with the tunes I was thinking of it would serve as both your dystopian misery and your moshpit joy mixes at the same time. Plus, bonus disappointment prep.

It's McManus. I ain't Scottish, fer Gawd's sake.

Seriously, no point to it until then.

Ok, so you know where to get tar & feathers and are all stocked up on Molotov's? Preparation takes time.

Lots of Scots have an 'Mc' spelling.

Me, for example.
