3/9/07 Show - Britpop

A show that featured and celebrated Britpop. Not the usual fair as I usually feature and celebrate punk and post-punk music but if it helps, many of the Britpop bands were indeed celebrating punk and post-punk by way of their own music. So in a way, it was a show within a show. Like when you see a movie about making a movie or eat a pregnant woman. I suppose you wouldn't have to eat the pregnant woman, the example could just be a pregnant woman but considering they swallowed a baby in the first place, maybe eating them would teach them how it feels. In Sweden they call that a California Cheeseburger, which has never made any sense to me. Anyway, we've veered disgustingly off subject again. Britpop had nothing to do with any of that. It was about Great Britain becoming Great Britain again. I wish the USA could do something like that. Have a name that clearly stated how cool we are (were). Become the United States of Awesome America or something. Or the Best United States of America Ever. And then we could finally change our stupid national anthem to Queen's "We Will Rock You". Queen was also from Great Britain so we know they're good.

It's the link to the mp3 paragraph right here. Right-click on this baby and download it to your computer. Then send it as a text message or make it your ringtone or whatever the kids are doing these days that's hot. Then make sure you listen to it at some point and maybe save it because if I end up going on that murderous rampage I've been thinking about lately, all things connected to me could be worth something:
