it's been a week of distractions, stress, and obligations. . .you know, the usual array of details that make up a life in early 21st century u.s.
i didn't watch the superbowl last weekend but i did see part of lady gaga's halftime show i thought was way too overproduced for my taste
i understood that the worry was lady gaga would be political in her performance
i mean the times call for it right
but no there was just a lot of fireworks and dancers and gaga herself leaping about the stadium
and i thought would it were be cool if black flag or the dead kennedys performed the superbowl halftime show
you want political? you couldn't get more of a political statement than seeing jello biafra intone the great verses of say 'california uber alles' before a weary and wasted world audience
oh and don't forget the stage divers leaping into the frightened moribund living rooms of the united states
think of that
then we might get somewhere . . .
