Because I Care

So that my beloved The Readers do not go through life never having been RickRoll'd, look at this... non... Astley-related... thing!! It's so, so awesome!

I think it's notable that RickRolling has risen into popular culture at the very same time as this National Conversation About Race we seem to be having. Because when, in a thousand years, archaeologists somehow manage to watch this by-then primitive techno cave painting of a music video, they will have a full and complete picture of how white people of our culture danced, and they will correctly surmise that it rarely seemed to go all that well.

you wouldn't get this from any other site at: mbe@drinktothelasses.com

Damn! I fear to admit it, but I used to LOVE that song... I suppose I still do.

But then again, I'm very http://youtube.com/watch?v=DEfaxwK3mn4" rel="nofollow">eclectic in my musical tastes :-)

OOOPPPPS. I meant a blurb on the news. This is why I hate not having spell check around.

Love this song, still have the *cassette* of the album and it still plays well :) But it is more fun to watch him dance!
