Comment:

the minor (and i stress minor) theme has something to do with the "not wholesomeness" of the United States. A couple minutes of talking begins each segment, courtesy of the innebriated sounding Howard Zinn and Noam "I wish people still took me seriously" Chomsky. Sure he had some interesting linguistic theories, but all the punks like to hear is his political rants (which often have merit, though I can't say supporting the Khmer Rouge regime for a short time helped his case at all). I have to go film a crappy movie now for my pacesetter English class, but at least I get to play a hard boiled film-noir detective. I do not know why I'm mentioning this, it has nothing to do with anything.

This is pretty cool, professor. I really love that Stiff Little Fingers track, in particular.

hard-boiled detective? maybe you could do a film-noir version of "manufacturing consent" or something. another nice one, posing one.

doh! If I'd have updated the mix of the week archive (I'm such a slacker), I'd have realized he got it last week. But I didn't! So I'm exposed. Not only for dimness, but for the liberal sucka that I am.
