Getting out the vote

This is a public service announcement... with guitar!

(No, it's not The Clash, just a PSA recorded by Chris Stamey and Yo La Tengo to get out the vote; along with that, they've released an album, not yet available in stores, and there's a sample track on the Yep Roc site.)

I know Stamey's played with Yo La Tengo before, offering some tastefully strangled guitar solos on a couple of their early songs, but this is the first time I've seen the band back him rather than the other way around. Interesting to see two of my favorite artists collaborating like this.

hey, cool! is it just me, or has it been a LONG time since everyone was so fired up about an election? (i just wish it wasn't because we're up against such a horrendous incumbent.)

i especially like that i saw this post right away due to that there newfangled rss feed that i have up at the top of my yahoo page...your blog is offically more important than reuters top stories, at least in my world.

I think cats are great animals.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
