Tone Def Poetry Jam

From The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, aired May 11, 2011.

A White House invitation to Grammy-winning vegetarian Common sparks controversy at Fox News… The only way to express the ridiculousness of Fox News is through a musical iteration of the spoken word.

It’s clear the bubble heads on Fox Noise — I’m looking at you Sean Hannity — loves them some violent lyrics, as long as they’re written by white guys like Johnny Cash and Ted Nugent.

Jon Stewart ends with his own, free-style rap to put this NON-ISSUE in perspective, and FOX NOISE in their place (which is back in their hole).

Sunday Roast: The Snowman

Taking a break from the Thom Hartmann book this week, to enjoy the flying segment from The Snowman.  Besides being a wonderful re-visitation of my children’s younger days, I find this particular piece so moving.  This music was written by Howard Blake specifically for this cartoon.

If you’d like to watch the whole cartoon, start here.

This is our day after Christmas open thread, tell us about your presents and everything you ate!
