: Obama & Gamma Rays :


Between Obama’s oratory delivery on Thursday and a resurgence of Beck I’m giddy with a rather naive sense of possibility for our country’s future (I have been known to drive my loved ones crazy with my optimism… an eternal idealist!)

What I’m having a very difficult time digesting is McCain’s VP selection– pardon my brashness, but WTF?!!  Let’s redirect some of those ‘Gamma Rays’ shall we? Having fallopian tubes that birthed five and touting her qualifications as “hockey Mom” and less than, what twenty months in the Alaskan office, is supposed to make the American voters charmed and overwhelmingly the most ignorant population of all time?! C’mon!

I feel like I’m back in high school dealing with sophmoric behavior and deep immaturity: “if Idon’t win, I’ll be a huge chipmunk-ed-cheek annoyance and distract the bee geezers out of everyone to get them so flustered and distracted they will- again- throw their vote away”.   Well… this just cannot come to pass, and that’s why I’m still a bit worried come November.

On another interesting note, ‘Gamma Ray’ has a couple of versions, the other more Dada-esque and so appealingly Beck (I’m happy to see him back to his creative musical genius, haven’t been this interested since ‘Odelay’).  This particular vid has what is believed to be Thomas Edison’s original 1894 filming with hand colored frames (the later part of the vid/film) which lends itself quite nicely to Beck’s musicality.

Enjoy… and please don’t cave-in by November!
