NOVEMBER '02
NOTE: PROTOTYPE CONTENT BELOW IS NOT CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED

NEWS 11/06/02 U.S. ELECTION LANDSLIDE:
Huge (2/3rds?) majority chose NOT to participate.

SELECTED TV RATINGS (week 10/23-11/3/02)
89.4% of potential U.S. viewers did NOT watch C.S.I.
91.1% did NOT watch Friends

94.5% did NOT watch The Bachelor
99.0% did NOT watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer (re-run)

BEST QUOTES from COURAGE...DOG (Cartoon Network)
(1) "Stupid TV!"
(2) "Stupid electoral college!"
READ REVIEW of "Courage the Cowardly Dog"

"Courage the Cowardly Dog is a cartoon for kids, but really freaky kids.
Village of the Damned kids. It's Lassie on mescaline,
The X-Files with fewer flashlights, or in other words, terrific for adults."

CLICK for magnificent Closing Theme (requires Real Player)
The above theme is hereby retitled: "Democracy In America." [ewg]
NOTE: If you are using evil Microsoft's new XP operating system,
you will not be able to hear this theme, nor will you be informed
there's anything you can do (i.e., install the appropriate
plug-in). THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW MICROSOFT CONTINUES TO
ABUSE ITS MONOPOLY POWER -- quietly making alternatives fail.



SONG BYTE


Lucky that my breasts are small and humble

So you don't confuse them [beat] with mountains.

SHAKIRA Whenever, Wherever [LAUNDRY SERVICE]

NOT A SONNET [smile]

THE CHORUS

So let's keep an eye on the future, folks,

and honor true poets, honor the innovators,

honor the artisans of visionary jokes,

the authentic voices, the impassioned creators.

Store their words with fresh lemons in the cedar chest,

savor their music, treasure their wit,

that their song might last all year at its best,

and keep your clothes from smelling like shit.

ARISTOPHANES, The Wasps
RECOMMENDED TRANSLATION/FORMATTING:
Penn Greek Drama Series: Aristophanes, 2

"If I'm in
a high school
in the ghetto
right now,
and I ask,
'Who writes poetry?'
or
'How many of you
have a
book of rhymes?,'
80 percent
of the class
raises their hands."

Russell Simmons
IN: "A NEW PLATFORM FOR NEW POETS"
JON PARELES NEW YORK TIMES 11/10/02

[NOT A SONNET, TOO]
RAP THIS, (8 MILE) ROAD KILL: [ewg]

Yo Eminem, you pussy, when it comes to rhyme

it takes a fuckin' sonnet to achieve sublime.

I'm sorry that yo' momma made you feel so low,

but, silly Rabbit, you don't have a clue, you know,

of what it feels like when a racist cop debates

your right to dignity, when he humiliates

you just because you've got the nerve to walk the street

as if you were a human, no he must defeat

your spirit, 'cause your skin screams "you can torture me."

Yo Eminem, go crawl back on yo' momma's knee.
