The Daily Soundtrack searched high and low this morning for sensible individuals… instead, we found these “people.” I didn’t really want to use parens on “people” but it was pointed out to me that they are SO clueless they may, in fact, be alien beings or some new form of moss creature.
Wot U On? – Dizzee Rascal
The Cal State University Board is talking about cutting EVERYTHING today… nothing should be left off the table in these perilous times for higher education. NOTHING! Oh and they’re also voting to give pay raises to 7 university presidents. They point out the funds are coming from “private sources” as if that makes it feel, look or be any better. They have missed the point of shared responsibility. Although not the case these days, in the past presidents of failing companies would be kicked to the curb.
Huh? (Intro) – Spiritualized
‘Mittens the Candidate’ is facing a conundrum. He lied about when he left the company he owned and it all ties into money in shelters and outsourcing jobs and everything he’s done to become wealthy at the expense of regular folks. And he’s missing the point. The people who are going to vote for him would do so even if his name was Jerry Sandusky. The swing state voter suppression fix is already in… he’s already got the thing in the bag. Even if he’s a know-nothing alien who’s bought his way to the presidency. He should release anything people ask for, including any honeymoon sex tapes… that way he won’t have to deal with them AFTER he’s elected.
Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street? – Bruce Springsteen
People are upset that bus drivers in London got lost making the 45 minute drive from the airport to the Olympic Village… they’re missing the point. Don’t they know how much fun it is to spend four hours on a bus? I bet the delegation from India didn’t care… every bus ride in India is four hours long! Going to the market? Four hours? Going to the Taj? Four hours. Going to restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel you’re staying in? Four hours. And anyway, they’re athletes… they’re young… they’re away from home… they don’t mind.
Side Note 1: Is there a Swedish Bikini Team in the competition?
Side Note 2: Does anyone give a crap about the Olympics?
Bad News Is Coming – Luther Allison
In a ranking of countries with ‘free press’ the United States has landed at #47! Hurray for US! Some wiseacres are upset that the greatest country in the world is far from the greatest in this category
, but at least we don’t torture. These crybabies are missing the point… we are NUMBER 47! We’re still better than South Africa and Botswana (oh wait… they’re above us) Latvia, Moldava. Repeat after me. We’re # 47! We’re # 47! We’re # 47!
? – Outkast
NFL players are getting wealthier. NFL players are being arrested. I’m the one missing the point here. Why has this nonsense reached such grandiose proportions? Ol’ Bingo must be an alien ‘cause he doesn’t understand what the hell is wrong with us.
The Daily Soundtrack will miss the point again tomorrow!
