It’s Kanye West’s video for “Stronger”. A pretty kicking mix of samples from French house artists Daft Punk, Kanye, and video homage to the classic anime film (and manga) Akira.

I love Daft Punk. In case you somehow managed to sleep thru the late 90s and missed them at their peak here in the US, I’ve included some bonus footage after the break. Bigger, Harder, Faster, Stronger!

Lion Mom Michelle Malkin

On September 19, 2007 By

Update: Jill at WLST has a similar take (though less direct). 😉

In her sickening tirade against anti-war actress Sally Field, Michelle Malkin indicates that she believes that there are sheep moms and lion moms. I have to admit that to a certain point, I agree with her. Some moms are more passive and docile in their child rearing. Others are more aggressive and outspoken. But only a moron would suggest that there are mothers who are protective of their children, and mother?s who are not. Do some research, Ms. Malkin. Sheep protect their offspring as fiercely as […]

Value Voters

On September 19, 2007 By

Last night was a GOP “Value Voters” debate. Phyllis Schlafly, Roy Moore, Paul Weyrich, Don Wildmon, Rick Scarborough, and Janet Folger were all in attendance, and Joseph Farah, the founder of WorldNetDaily, moderated. McCain, Guiliani, Romney and Thompson all refused to attend.

Here’s the opening “re-envisioning” of “God Bless America”, performed by the Church of God Choir, from Springfield, Ohio. (Lyrics after the jump.)

Curiously, Ron Paul was not afraid to enter the lion’s den (he faced boos, and a smattering of cheers). His closing statement:

He’s a bright man, and affable, but I really don’t agree with […]

State Rep. Shannon Jones (R) introduced HB 314 yesterday- another crap, anti-choice bill aimed at whittling away at women’s reproductive rights in Ohio by extending our state’s already-restrictive laws on abortion.

The sad part is, two Democrats co-sponsored the thing: Matthew H. Barrett (D-Amherst) and L. George Distel (D-Conneaut).

Come on boys, get with the program!

Here’s what the bill wants to add:

Sec. 2317.561. In addition to the requirements in section 2317.56 of the Revised Code, if an obstetric ultrasound examination is performed at any time prior to the performance or inducement of an abortion or […]

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

On September 19, 2007 By

This is a sneak preview of tonight’s PB Late Night Theater entry. This is a clever, creative homemade video for Daft Punk’s song “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.” It starts a bit slow (and silly), but stick with it. By the end, this might make your top ten list of coolest things you’ve ever seen on YouTube. Seriously. This qualifies as performance art, IMO.

Greenspan and Rand…

On September 19, 2007 By

Atrios has a very interesting collection of related quotes; Greenspan on Iraq, Greenspan on Ayn Rand, and Rand on the white man taking land from American Indians. I’m not sure they are completely analogous, but the underlying similarity in attitude is unmistakable.
