I'm with Stupid (or Evil)

Jon Stewart poses This Week's Discussion Question and Wyatt Cenac and John Oliver both make strong cases:
Is Fox News Evil or Stupid?
Please keep the discussion civil and do not wander off into "Evil! Evil! Evil!" or "Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!" or "Could we break it down on a personality-by-personality basis? Beck, stupid. Hannity, stupid. Rove, evil..."

Sunday Random Ten (Let's Play Two!)

Was on the road last Sunday so we'll make it up with a doubleheader today.


Van Morrison - Have I Told You Lately
Beki Hemingway - Siouxanne
Nick Lowe - Hope For Us All
Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings - Something's Changed
Uncle Tupelo - Gun
The Beatles - Cry Baby Cry
The Mercy Seat - He Said
Joe Henry - Bellwether
Crowded House - Weather with You
Joe Tex - Show Me

World Party - Private Revolution

The Beach Boys - Let's Go Away for Awhile
Fountains of Wayne - Elevator Up
Bill Mallonee - Wintergreen
Del Amitri - Here and Now
Johnny Rivers - Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

Was kinda tough this week. Just added the fantastic new "Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin" and when we hit shuffle today we swear we heard the little green Nano whisper "Are you sure you wanna do that?"

We now return you to This Week's Discussion Question (You want to get worked up about how much vacation President Obama takes? Really?), already in progress.

Sunday Random 10 (Monday Edition, Tuesday Publication)

Been nuts around TWDQ HQ, so we didn't get to the Nano until Monday, and haven't gotten to posting until Tuesday.


Nick Lowe - When I Write the Book
The Beatles - Slow Down
Solomon Burke - I Need Your Love in My Life
Gnarls Barkley - Crazy
Kirsty MacColl - Innocence
Joe Henry - I Flew Over Our House Last Night
Del Amitri - Crashing Down
The Cars - Let's Go
The Beatles - Revolution 9
The Swell Season - Paper Cup

Track 9? "Revolution 9". We swear the iPod's messing with us.

We now return you to This Week's Discussion Question, already in progress.

Sunday Random 10

Let's see what the little green Nano has in store to ring in August!


Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings - I Learned the Hard Way
Rosanne Cash - Black Cadillac
The Mercy Seat - I Am a Pilgrim
The Beatles - Maggie Mae
Dan Zanes & Friends - Goodnight, My Someone
Vince Guaraldi - Christmas Time is Here
Dolly Varden - Some Sequined Angel
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Into the Great Wide Open
The Pogues - Sally MacLennane
The Faces - (I Know) I'm Losing You (Live)

We're just going to say that the Ms. Jones tune is a strong contender for the 2010 Faves compilation, unless one of the other fine songs on that album (What? You don't have it yet? Go!) muscles its way past it.

We now return you to This Week's Discussion Question (Really, Anne Rice? You've never heard of any of the other flavors that aren't anti-gay*, anti-feminist, anti-artificial birth control? Really? Really?!?), already in progress.

*Sadly, our flavor can't yet claim this one. Someday, someday.
