Why'd You Call Me? Must Be Bad

Quick poll. Your choices are the a-cappella groups that take popular songs and re-make them in a-capella form, and the two-man singer/songwriter guitar playing Simon & Garfunkle wussie wannabees. (This does not apply to the actual Simon & Garfunkle, whose music I respect and admire.) The question is, which is more pretentious and annoying?

So everyone is excited about the Democrats taking control of the House and the Senate. Unfortunately, the Dems don't control the Senate. The Connecticut for Lieberman Party does. Let's hope that the Left Wing can keep him happy. Which seems to defeat the purpose, but that's politics.

I also want to take a moment to report that trust and human kindness still exist in McGregor, MN. I went to the gas station, and had filled up my car when I realized I didn't have my wallet. The clerk inside let me drive home and get it, and even refused to accept my rifle as collateral. The world isn't doomed.

For now.

Your Kindness of Strangers leader.

Two-man singer-songwriters. One-man signer-songwriters can be cool, unless they're John Mayer.

Female singer-songwriters in any combination are teh hotsor.
