long live the green party.

mcain is part of the same empirical system bush was. and while bush obviously stole both of his elections, it is worth noting that there were enough people voting for him, to get him within striking distance. which is just testament to the millions of people in this country who only process information delivered from a television, and who are uneducated enough to vote on moral similarities.

im voting green party. but it's not an abandonment of obama, it's just a nice benefit of living in such a liberal state, obama will so easily carry california, so while i campaing for him to a certain extent, i have the freedom to add support via my vote, to a lesser know party.

plus pallin shouldn't be anywhere near the white house, and if anything mccain shouldn't be allowed to be president based on his blatant attempts to use her to manipulate america by offering a pretty face instead of a respectable politician. if that's the type of government people are looking for, sweet smiled conservatives with imperialist appetites, then we should completely give up on democracy, and bow before our tv masters.

Krust - Coded Language (Roni Size Remixes)

(They cant all be good)

my recent discovery of the genius that is saul williams lead me to search out "coded language" by krust.

Amoeba didn't have it on vinyl, not a huge surprise, but digging the jungle 12"'s uncovered the roni size mix of the "coded" single williams appears on.

What a disappointment. The a side (which thanks to factory error has the b side label on it) features a tiny slathering of williams lyrics within the first quarter of the track, and some how elicits the necessity of an instrumental on the mislabeled b side.

I'm a huge fan of roni size, considering new forms to be one of the greatest records ever recorded, but this single is indicative at best, and more properly described as boring, and uninventive. I'm not sure how prominent williams is on the album version, but a miraculous combination of sauls gritty, and sizes jazzy, this is not.
