Double Strip Day.

(Third of series on the comic strip Prickly City's reponce to hurricane Katrina. First is here.)

You guys get a bonus strip today! Why? Cause' I forgot to post one yesterday!

Because the constitution protects the right to free speech, maybe? Anyway, the big problem with this strip is that it looks like the coyote blames Bush for the "dust devil" happening, something that many conservatives really believe the left thinks. Yet those who blame our fearless leader for it only blame him for the response. I guess that mentioning something that stupid makes who you are arguing against look like a fool in areas where they are not, which boosts how intelligent you look in comparison. That's the entire purpose behind false campaign ads, one of the reasons our democracy is crumbling.

Ah, the conservative and the liberal find common ground in hate for government bureaucracy! Isn't it beautiful?


Ehh, not really.

Anyway, I'm still waiting for something crazier to happen. Just tomorrow left!

Music/ makes the people/ say what the heck?!!?

Some people like making up weird things for people to do on their blogs, and one the things I found is to list the first ten songs that play when you set your player on random/ all songs. I will now do this prompt, but I have to warn you: this may or may not be made up.

1. Nina Gordon/ Straight Out of Compton - Oh man, this is so good that I would of faked it in here anyway, but it honestly showed up as the first song played on random. This version of the notoriously profane and disturbingly violent becomes something entirely different when covered as a simple and vary beautifully sung folk song. About shooting people. Awesome.

2. Chick Corea/ Lifeline - Hea, Jazz! Jazz Lab Combo! Copied this CD onto my computer after getting it out of the library. Hurray for free music!

3. Scissor Sisters, The Beatles, George Michael and Aretha Franklin (a remix by DJ Earworm)/ No One Takes Your Freedom - A beautiful Beatles ballad, a bad eighties song and one of the best female vocalists of all time? Sounds like a recipe for success.

4. Crazy Girl/ Kick Yo Booty - The next "Who Let the Dogs Out," here to annoy you now before it (might) hit it big. (notice, the Mp3 on the site I linked to has been taken down by now. That is the nature of Fluxblog)

5. Chad VanGaalen/ Echo Train - Anouther Fluxblog, this one recent enough to still have a working link, or at least have one for now. Reading it's description it seems like it's a sad song, but listening to it I can't really tell why because he mumbles a lot. I might read the lyrics sooner or later to find out what he's depressed about. The music, though, works really well.

Six through ten later.

El continuaci├│n!

Continuation of this post.

Ok, so I still don't know why the coyote hasn't gotten up yet. And it still says exactly what you'd expect a conservative to say. Where is the crazy, anger inducing statement! Where's an "euthanasia is hip"? He still has the rest of the week, though, so stay tuned.

It's worth noting that even this stip has said less than nice things about Bush.

Chances are you've heard of political comics that invade the normal funnies like The Boondocks and Doonsbury. Probably in response to all of those strips a political cartoonist, Scott Stantis, started drawing the comic shown below, named Prickly City. It was recently added to the Chicago Tribune, so I've been reading them pretty regularly. Not because it's funny, I just can't look away. First Scott misquoted Ted Kennedy and made a joke about his bad driving. And that it killed someone. That stip was not printed by the Chicago Tribune, even though the Tribune would suport a colony of bacteria for president if it was the Republican candidate. Then during Terri Shivo he, well, read the Wikipeda article if you need to know.

And then, after the hurricane, Scott did this strip:

Exactly what you'd expect from a conservative, right? Entirely disaffected and blind to the real issue (even though it's somewhat true). Then this happened:

Honestly, I have no idea what Scott is thing to say here, other than the Homeland Security crack. He already said the the people stuck in New Orleans didn't get out of the way due to their own stupidity. Is he saying that they stayed there out of their own stupidity? Is he that out of it?

Tune in tomorrow for more copyright infringement and the exciting continuation.


Prickly City's official description from it's website:
A small town in the American Southwest... everything in the desert is designed to prick you, wound you or eat you. What better metaphor for 21st century Earth? PRICKLY CITY is a comic strip about the friendship between Winslow, a coyote pup, and Carmen, a straight and narrow kind of kid. PRICKLY CITY offers a conservative perspective on political and social events within an ongoing storyline. As Carmen might say, "We may not be correct but we will always be right."

Gitmo ┬╗ Why Guantanamo Bay?

This is a facinating history of Guantanamo Bay that really shows just how messed up the place is.

Weird wikipedianess.

Ok, so when I went to the Wikipedia page for Goth to get it for the last post I was greeted with this image as an example of a goth.

Look at it now just a few minutes later and you find a picture that's a little less demeaning to the whole goth thing. Ah, the Internet.

For those who are keeping track...

...Marching Band had it's first competition yesterday. This is a call for celebration, even though we got third out of, like, five. For, you see, our drum major didn't go off time during the whole show! While it is not a good sign when she's off so often that when she does get it right people are dancing in the streets, I still say good for her. Secondly, our band directors finally admitted that the show that they designed for us is ridiculously hard. To quote, "This show is crazy, and we were crazy to write it." I honestly believe that we would have placed second or even first if the show wasn't so close to impossible.

But the good news is that I think the insaneness of the show makes it more entertaining for the audience. Compare us to, for example, the people who won overall. This is the band that always wins these competitions even though their shows consist of hardy hardly any marching, or even movement at all, except by the freaking ballet dancers. The music is slow and melodic, beautiful but depressing. Since marching bands are known for being energetic and powerful (it's on a football field, for Christ's sake!), seeing what's practically ballet in a marching band show is somewhat off putting and feels empty. The tone of their shows, and the fact that they wear all black, has given them a reputation as mysterious people of the night (this is even funnier when you consider that they are from a catholic school.). Ok, so they're talented and their show is flawless. And, even though I don't know anyone from the band, I'm sure that the band members are good people. That doesn't mean I have to like their show. At all.

Anyway, judging from audience reaction, our show is fun to watch despite the fact that only half us can play our music. It's going to be something else when we get right.
