The Sunday Selector: June 22nd, 2008

It’s baaaaaaack...

The Dixie Hummingbirds—“Christian Automobile”—playing 6/26 at Celebrate Brooklyn

HARRY NILSSON DOES POPEYE— I don’t know what’s weirder, the fact that I really like the Popeye soundtrack (probably never making it to CD) or that there are actually demos available ( and they’re even better than the final versions). Drink your spinach.

FISA HOLD ‘EM—I’m pretty much in the same camp with John Cole.  Steve M. has it right, too.

THE BEATLES’ GET BACK—I’ve always had a soft spot for the Beatles’ Let It Be, which I’ve enjoyed a lot more than, say,  the bloated ‘n’ silly Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (there, I said it) and this Glyn Johns mix, appropriately titled Get Back and replete with studio chatter,  makes it even sweeter.

MATT TIABBI’S “FULL METAL MCCAIN”—“McCain is perhaps the first candidate in history to stump against two bills bearing his own name.”

I don’t get this part that Steve M says: He’s taking risks. He thinks he can’t afford to take this one.

What risk does Obama take by opposing the bill? Will the Republicans call him names? Will he lose to McAngry in November? No fucking way. Obama is so very good at exposing right wing bull shit (gas tax, off-shore drilling), what an opportunity he had here to do the same thing.

Maybe Obama is being paternal with his new children, Nancy and Harry, and he doesn’t want to criticize their “hard work” in the sausage factory.

And don’t you love Reid’s enthusiasm about stripping the immunity clause from the bill: “Probably we can’t take that out of the bill, but I’m going to try.”
