Oh, Internet!

Being that I am a hardcore election nerd, I decided that it would be appropriate to post some sort of election-related video. So I got to thinking. What song would be appropriate for this day? I shall now explain my journey to you.

Right away I thought, "HELLO. BOB DYLAN, OBVS!" But there are SO MANY awesome Dylan songs that I had trouble deciding. Then I thought maybe Sam Cooke? But I thought that was too obvious.

After a conversation with Dave, (who talked about how whether or not he agrees with people, he wants those people to have the freedom to make their own choices... which makes him AWESOME) I thought, "Hey! Freedom!" But that didn't have any options for embedding the video. Then I looked down at the related videos, and saw this awesome commercial for an 80's compilation called Freedom Rock. Which is 100% HILARIOUS. Because it led me to this song...

... which really has very little to do with freedom OR rock. Or voting. But it makes me laugh. So it's got that going for it, which is nice.

ANYWAYS... after thinking about it for awhile, I finally thought of the perfect song to sum up my feelings for today.

Oh the ant WILL move the motherfucking rubber tree plant, alright! Because we have
HOPE(s). High ones.

I have never seen a commercial advertising records, cassettes and cd's all at once!

I actually have a record player and a Frank Sinatra LP. I don't know if that makes me cool or a huge lame-ass.

Anyways, well chosen.

I thought about it a little bit: huge lame ass.
