Ted Leo and The Pharmacists Dirty Old Town Documentary

Okay, "Dirty Old Town" is from way back in 2003, but I haven't seen it until Pitchfork.TV ran it today. It opens up with David Cross and H. Jon Benjamin introducing Ted, pandering the New Jerseyians (Ted being from the state) at some dive-ish place that Ted Leo seems to love playing at.

Directed by Justin Mitchell, the documentary focuses on the band's NYC ventures during the 2003 Siren Music Festival. Check it out at Pitchfork now ... before they take it away!

Glorious Day in the United States

The World seems to be in a unanimous celebration of joy and relief with Tuesday's election of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. And although the conservative may frown the results in their home's, liberals are rejoicing after eight seemingly endless years of futility and national disgrace.

From here, watching Jesse Jackson cry on camera was the crowning moment of the night, cascading an image of an amazing moment in American history. It's a relief, to rid of the party that has dealt the country so many horrible things.

How can I post music today? This means so much, for US and the rest of the World.

McCain On SNL

I'm wondering if there's anything more relevant than Saturday Night Live right now (it won't be after tomorrow, but right now it is). Even though i'm all for Obama (not so much a secret here) tomorrow, i'm still loving the GOP guest spots the show has been having.

Here's Senator McCain with special-er guest Cindy McCain from last Saturday.

Pharoahe Monch Covers Public Enemy

On Election Eve everyone's collective political conscious should be running as an eclectic mudslide of political shit-shifts. And for those who've had enough of Bruce Springsteen for the last few days, there's always Pharoahe Monch to assist your political diversions.

Okay, Pharoahe Monch dissapears four years at a time so he's not always there, but he is today. Check out his cover and video of Public Enemy's notorious single, "Welcome to the Terrordome."

Here's their performances of "You're Dumb," and "Buried Alive," as well as tiny group-discussions between members.

Check here for Part Two tomorrow ...
