Saturday Night Groove: Donald Fagen, “Slinky Thing”

More light
Music • Views: 32,911

From the album of the year, Sunken Condos.

It was a October morning
Near the carousel
I met a light young beauty
And we hooked up for a spell
We walked up by the green lawn
And my heart began to sing
Mad man on a victory lap

Hold onto that slinky thing
Hold onto that slinky thing

Went to a party
Everybody stood around
Thinkin’ hey what she doing
With a burned out hippie clown
Young dudes were grinnin’
I can’t say it didn’t stink
Some punk says pops you better

Hold onto that slinky thing
Hold onto that slinky thing

More light, more light, more light, more light, more light, more light
More light, more light, more light, more light, more light, more light

Today we were strolling
By the reptile cage
I’m thinkin’ that she needs somebody
Who’s closer to her own age
Try not to worry
What tomorrow may bring
I’m just gonna do my best to

Hold onto that slinky thing
Hold onto that slinky thing

More light, more light, more light, more light, more light, more light
More light, more light, more light, more light, more light, more light

Today we were strolling
By the reptile cage
I’m thinkin’ that she needs somebody
Who’s closer to her own age
Try not to worry
What tomorrow may bring
I’m just gonna do my best to

Hold onto that slinky thing
Hold onto that slinky thing

There’s a sun in my sky
That’s my power supply
She stayed with me
I know heaven is right here on earth

S. Dakota GOP Ad: The Down-Home Farm Girl vs. the Effete Tree Hugging Librul

Appealing to the dumb
Politics • Views: 25,991

Presented for amusement and dissection, the Republican Party of South Dakota (SDGOP) has created this web ad exploring the differences between the state’s Congressional candidates — the family values farm-loving South Dakota girl versus the suspiciously worldly tree-hugging environmentalist librul.

Right wing anti-intellectualism writ large, with flashy 90° angled captions and a zooming high tech map to impress the rubes.

Electoral Saturday Open Thread

Tracking
LGF • Views: 24,378

Here’s an open thread as I fix some of the little issues that have popped up in the new LGF Pages, and tweak some more features. A new feature: if you click the day portion of the date (e.g. “Oct 27, 2012”) in the article’s subheading, it takes you to the daily archive index, both for LGF Pages and front page articles. And the daily Pages archives now have a navigation panel to let you step forward and back through the days of our lives.

In the meantime, here are a few good sites at which you can obsessively monitor the aggregated polling data. If these projections are accurate we’re going to have a very close popular election, but something like an electoral landslide for Obama.

Video: Meat Loaf Serenades Mitt Romney

Obama has Morgan Freeman and Bruce Springsteen, Romney has Meat Loaf and Ted Nugent
WTF • Views: 25,729

Wow, talk about a prized endorsement! Mitt Romney and Meat Loaf!

Here we see the great Mr. Loaf “interpreting” America the Beautiful, all up in Mitt Romney’s face. I’ll bet the Governor truly enjoyed that and wasn’t faking it at all!
