Half-Fox and Half-Free



Looks like it's time to hoist this one of the middle of 2010 and bring it back to the front page.

Because looking at the eye-melting madness that now runs freely and openly through the Right and the jaw-dropping "Both Sides Do It" denialism that continues to infest most of our media from top to bottom, it has never been more obviously true that we as a nation cannot endure permanently half-Fox and half-free.

Our New Liberal Anthem:

The Magnetic Fields -- "You must be out of your mind"

3...2...1...

You think I'll run-not-walk to you?


Why would I want to talk to you?


I want you crawling back to me
down on your knees

Yeah

Like an appendectomy

sans anesthesia

If you think you can leave the past behind
brooks_david2


You must be out of your mind
Vanity_Fair


If you think you can simply press rewind
GELLER
You must be out of your mind, son
You must be out of your mind

You want what you turned off, turned on



You call it sunset, now it's dawn



You can't go 'round just saying stuff
palin_material2
because it's pretty


And I no longer drink enough
UNITY
to think you're witty

If you think you can leave the past behind
You must be out of your mind
if you think you can simply press rewind
You must be out of your mind, son
You must be out of your mind

You want to kindle that old flame
Preamble_Burn

I don't remember your real name
devil_his-due2


It must be something scandalous
Lurks in your shadows
If you need a Santa Claus

To buy your gallows

If you think you can leave the past behind
brooks_david2


You must be out of your mind
Vanity_Fair


If you think you can simply press rewind
GELLER
You must be out of your mind, son
You must be out of your mind

You must be out of your mind, son
You must be out of your mind.




I first heard this song today and knew I had to move quickly, before that speedy bastid Andy Cobb turned the concept into an award-winning short film with Will Ferrell, James Caan, Bob Balaban, Brent Spiner, Jorja Fox, Ben Gazzara, Dame Judi Dench, Naveen Andrews, Luke Wilson, Bruce Boxleitner, Winona Ryder, Thandie Newton and Andy Dick.

Thanks Driftglass. I just started the music and was scrolling through the pics and realized that you had illustrated the song. Most outstanding. I may be thick but not impenetrable. -g

A bit off topic here, but have you heard that the photographer Jim Marshall died on Tuesday?

Minor point, but Ben Gazzara has gone to his reward.
