Native comedy and a "what if?"

In looking for interesting standup, I came across a clip for the ill-fated Richard Pryor Show in 1977. This native standup comedian named Charlie Hill came on Richard's show and gave a little of the Native American perspective on life in America. Here is that clip and a more recent clip of Hill from the 2000's.

Here is something that you can send to a friend who is thinking about not voting in the coming election (I haven't heard of any of them thankfully, but just in case!)

I got this email from MoveOn with the subject "you're in this video" The body of the email said that on November 7, Obama's loss in the previous Tuesday's election could be traced to me not getting out to vote! (like that would ever happen!) It's a fun, funny video, well done and edited perfectly. Send it to your friends! http://www.cnnbcvideo.com/index.html?nid=GfssiENkntoD7cozAH_ODDQxMzQwMg--&referred_by=8428026-ERhQ_6x

By the way, isn't the newscaster that guy that I had posted Some Oldies but Goodies... and maybe you hadn't seenies? doing that great impersonation of Keith Olbermann? I am pretty sure it is, but tell me what you think.

I have noticed that there is a lot of "crossover" in some very disparate forms of music lately! The genre-switching is new and interesting! We probably haven't seen these kinds of musical twists since Run-DMC and Aerosmith melded! Wow! Take a look at these new releases from both RnB crooner T.Z. and Death Metal dudes Maggot Infested Brain:

We ate some tomato and basil veggie burgers and some really delicious seasoned oven-baked potatoes tonight. Man! That was good! It's just that I ate way, way too much! Almost like this guy from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life-one of my favorite comedy troupes and movies:
