What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Stephen Colbert At the White House Correspondents' Dinner
Stephen Colbert's performance at the Correspondents' Dinner has to be one of the great WTF! moments of 2006. Not for what he said, but because anyone expected something different. In much the same way that Jon Stewart punctured the pomposity of the hosts of CNN's Crossfire and was accused by these media windbags of "just not being funny", Mr. Colbert dared speak "truthiness" to the president and the press corp. (Or should that be press corpse? Check to see if they're breathing.) And the verdict among those in power, or kneeling at the feet of power, is the same: "not funny".

Me, I think it's hysterical. And not just because I enjoy the spectacle of the leader of the free world being discomfited, although that's true enough. This is what Stephen Colbert is good at, what he's known for. How can anybody invite him to roast the president and the press and not expect him to turn the dial up to broil? Some of us like our dead meat cooked well done. And with this audience, that's rare indeed.
