Needless to say, this is all kind of a big deal. In an interview Moore did on the streets with a CNN reporter, the director expressed some very interesting opinions on the direction that he believes our democracy should go. In a nutshell Moore believes democracy rules, and capitalism drools. He says that contrary to popular belief, change can happen very quickly, citing how fast the Berlin Wall came down, and the rise to power of figures like Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama. Moore also has some interesting views on copyright laws, saying that art is something that should be shared as much as possible, and doing so with fewer legal restrictions is not only beneficial to the fans, but the artist as well.

Wow wee! If you think that interview was tense, you should also see Michael Moore's interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer promoting his new documentary See: Michael Moore has his way with Wolf Blitzer again - Democratic Underground Ouch, take it easy, Mike. He's Wolf Blitzer...not Hitler!
YouTube - Leave Miley Cyrus Alone. She is not Hitler. -BE FOREWARNED,...THERE IS SOME VERY, VERY STRONG LANGUAGE IN THIS VID. SO IF THAT WILL MAKE YOUR EARS BLEED PLEASE DON'T CLICK ON THE LINK. THANK YOU.) Luckily JohnnySmooth was available to courageously defend Miss Cyrus. "...some of these hateful comments she's (Miley's) been getting. It's just sickening!" says Mr. Smooth. An example of some of these despicable comments directed at Miss Miley Cyrus include "Tie a rope around your neck, hang yourself from your ceiling fan, and turn it on." and "I was dating Miley Cyrus for like a year, and we was gonna get married. But one day she farted, so I broke up with her and never saw her again." And that was only what I was able to print. My, my...what kind of world do we line in, folks? Not a good one...not a good one.

NIFTY SONG LYRICS OF THE DAY
Today's nifty song lyrics are from Jim Croce's 1973 classic "Roller Derby Queen."
Gonna tell you a story that you won't believe
But I fell in love last Friday evenin'
With the girl I saw on a bar room TV screen
Well I was just gettin' ready to get my hat
When she caught my eye and I put it back
And I ordered myself a couple o' more___shots 'n' beers
The night that I fell in love with a Roller Derby queen
Round and round, oh round and round
The meanest hunk o woman that anybody ever seen
Down in the arena
(See YouTube - Jim Croce - Roller Derby Queen (Live) [16:9])
Alright, stop asking me "are we there yet?" because we're almost finished. Now for our final segment of the day...
A MOMENT IN DAXFLAME HISTORY
Today we remember a youtube video which has fast become legendary (at least as far as I'm concerned). It is a vid posted by EclecticAsylumArt to announce the People's Choice winner in Eclectic Asylum Art's "Strike A Pose" Portrait Contest. The winner, young Daxflame, had the honor of having his portrait painted with chocolate syrup, and a spoon in place of a paint brush. A work of art so brilliant it makes Andy Warhol's "32 Campbell's Soup Cans" look like...uhh..a bunch of Campbell's Soup cans. Here it is:
