Smells Like Booty: A musical map of the 20th Century

Holy Jesus, somebody worked their asses off on this. This thing is fucking epic!

YOU MUST LISTEN TO IT!! Play it while cleaning. Play it while taking a bath. Play it while doing your taxes. Play it while waterboarding a terrorist. Play it while getting high. Play it over headphones. Play it under the house. Play it out your cat’s butt. Just play it. Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! It includes the first sample ever, as well as the history of sampling and “smashing”. But it’s so much more than all of that. Indescribable…

So I know I’ve been posting a lot about music lately, and people who know me know that music fuels me. However, they also know that I must be obsessed about the coming midterm elections. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I’ve been so slammed with work that I’ve got no time to follow politics (which is exactly why the lower classes have such a hard time participating in the democratic process… no time to get involved when you have to struggle just to put food on the table).

Anyway, I’ll get back to the politics when I can. Let me just say this. Anytime a single party has control of the House and the Senate, our democracy is rendered meaningless. The fact that both parties want complete control of the process blows my mind. They really don’t realize how valuable the other side is to the vast debate that makes up this lumbering social experiment – still very much in the making – called The United States of America.

Vote to redistribute the power.

And listen to the awesome track posted above.
