The National Football League basically justified my decision to dump that stupid Roman numbering system and go with good ol' decimal.
The NFL recently announced that the next Super Bowl will be "50" instead of the Roman numeral "L".
I consider that validation on an unprecedented level!
So, here's my choice for v.36 this week:
Leonard Cohen's apocalyptic poem to our society's inevitable decay..."The Future"!
This song was featured in the film "Natural Born Killers", that was directed by Oliver Stone and produced in part by Jane Hamsher, who currently resides at FireDogLake.com, and who was a major influence in my becoming politically active as a blogger.
So, you can blame all this craziness on her!
Actually, Jane is one of my heroes, and I consider myself lucky to have met her and done work that made her proud (see the year 2006 in the archives of this blog). And I have her to thank for influencing much of the music that was selected for NBK, including this amazing song by Leonard Cohen.
