    “If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don’t bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don’t bullshit yourself that you’re not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard’s vote.” – David Foster Wallace

    Never heard of that band. Not bad at all! Kinda sounds like a higher-fi Spacemen 3 with female vocals.

    I tend toward the lower-fi when it comes to slow, woozy tunes (Galaxie 500, Slowdive, Grouper, MBV, Black Tambourine, early Henry’s Dress. etc.). I dig that fuzzed-out, the-band’s-playing-at-the-bottom-of-an-empty-swimming-and-recorded-from-two-blocks-away sound.

    Sorry. I get Biden-esquely blabby when such topics arise.

  • As others have noted, Mr. Zambrelli’s grammar and style is, shall we say, a tad wanting. This gives me an idea: my wife is a teacher who recently got laid-off due to savage cuts to the public education budget in our state. Her grammar is pristine, and she’s a formidable stylist (she was an English major). I think I might contact Michael “The Economic Engine” Zambrelli, and suggest that he hire her to clean up the website. This sounds like the perfect Galtian contract to me.
