That Jack Conte guy made another great piece of music... this time
with a small chamber orchestra:

I can't get Powerhouse out of my head now. Raymond Scott stabs at me from beyond his grave. Assuming he is no longer alive.

Incidentally, that is an insidious piece of music to have stuck in your head.

Imagine working with Powerhouse stuck in your head. Imagine an hour long commute along a busy highway with Powerhouse stuck in your head. It's actually rather amusing, if rather demented.

Someone with speakers mounted in their car should drive along the DC beltway blaring Powerhouse. My god, but that would be funny.

I can think of better things to shoot out your windows if you're in DC...  :)

I sometimes thing the only thing keeping our president alive is the fact that killing him would probably snarl traffic in the DC area for a week.

I sometimes think these things, too, rather than thing them.

Back when Hitlery was carpetbagging in NY so she could hold a senate seat here, every time she was in town there were roads closed so she and her alleged husband could travel in safety. They still have a house here which they list as their primary residence, but thankfully they're never around.

(Same town that I live in, technically ... perhaps I should list that as the reason I'm moving.)

Actually IG, they're still around. I've been passed by their motorcade more than once when they were getting off at the exit.

You see Ignat you don't have it so bad, the Clintons could barely afford a home.

Could you imagine someone pulling off an animation of what it might be like in the Clinton family home, as a weird parody of the Simpsons?

"The Clintons"

I mean, it sorta works already. Thing is, I expect it would be a much weirder animation than The Simpsons.

The last time I saw them "around town" pretending to be a family, there was only one visible SS and perhaps another outside; evidently "former" presidents get their coverage tapered down after a while. However I'm sure now that Hitlery has aspirations of getting back into the white house, they've probably upped her coverage.


(I'm moving. This town isn't big enough for both of us.)

But at least they care about the little guy.

bwahahahahhaaaa, it is so hard to say that without laughing.

This may be the most awesome recording of all time.

Of course, it's documented as "the most unwanted song" -- scientifically designed to incorporate lyrical and musical elements that are annoying to most people. Bagpipes, cowboy music, an opera singer rapping, and a children's choir urging people to shop at wal-mart.

I listened to the whole thing this morning.

It's oddly bad. I say 'oddly', because compositionally, the guy who wrote it did a fine job. It's just... wow...

I thought of you when I listened; it's got fleeb written all over it.

Honestly, I wish I'd thought of it.

I'm intrigued as to how the other song (the 'good' one) sounds.
