Hard as this is for me to say, I kind of like him now. (Eminem, that is.)

Authentic musicians the world over had a good laugh this weekend when out of synch vocal track caught Ashlee Simpson of guard, exposing her talent charade. Eric saw the show and wrote this post about it amlost immediately. I looked for a clip, but found none. It was too soon, but today, thanks to pi22seven, (known on my blog list as My Mac and Music Brother From Another Planet), we have the video clip, and he'd right...it's pretty ugly.
AlterNet: War on Iraq: The World According to a Bush Voter
MR. LEHRER: Mr. President, two minutes. Do you believe the election of Senator Kerry on November the 2nd would increase the chances of the U.S. being hit by another 9/11-type terrorist attack?Bush refuses to even acknowledge this hypothetical question. The rest of his response is rambling and unrelated. He talks about "the enemy" and refers to recent events in Russia while doing so, leaving us to a very vague interpretation of who "they" are.
PRESIDENT BUSH: I don't believe it's going to happen. I believe I'm going to win, because the American people know I know how to lead. I've shown the American people I know how to lead. I have -- I understand everybody in this country doesn't agree with the decisions that I've made. And I've made some tough decisions.
I suppose everyone has their bellies full of politics, and as tempting as it may be for me to venture into the subject, I will restrain myself to just this one thing. Remember how I said in my birthday post that I thought everyone looks younger than they really are? Well, I amend that now so that it applies to everyone but Dick Cheney. At 63, he's 12 years older than John Edwards, but he looks like the gap is more like 25 years. Maybe a lifetime of scowling will do that to you. That's as political as I get tonight. Besides, there are so many folks out there doing the job so well, what could I possibly contribute of any value, especially when I still have Barbie pictures begging to be displayed?
I am so very happy to add a new link to my blog list today. Joining us here in the blogosphere is my friend and former student, Eric Johanson and his blog, Think Responsibly. He has another in the works, named for one of his music projects, Empty Self. I look forward to seeing both of these blogs unfold.
Cire is guitar-driven, intelligent rock combining the odd rhythms of Tool, the soulful improvisation of Gov't Mule, and the hi-fi production of Nine Inch Nails. The contemplative vocals of creator Eric Johanson often explore philosophical and scientific worldviews stemming from his interest in evolutionary psychology and liberal politics. Cire has recently released its second CD, Adrenological.
