Sloganeering, etc.

Posted By on Fri, Jul 28, 2006 at 11:39 AM

I saw three great bumper stickers in the last 24 hours, two of which were on the same vehicle.

The first one was yesterday afternoon. It read simply, "If you're in a folk song, DON'T GO TO THE RIVER!"

So true. How many acoustic ballads have ended in romantic tragedy by running water? A damn few, for sure.

The next two I peeped this morning. One said, "Ban Republican Marriage," the other, "Practice Compassionate Impeachment."

Cathy just reminded me of the "Republicans for Voldemort" sticker/tee shirt. Arch.

On another note, I'm realizing that my musical tastes are extremist. On the one hand, I can't get enough of Harry Nilsson ballads. On the other, I think the new Gorgoroth (thanks Chris!) is the best black metal album of all time.

If Stevie Nicks joined Sunn O))), I'd be all set.
