THIS Could Happen If You Don't Vote TODAY


A friend sent me this video and inserted my name.

If the video isn't showing here, you can watch on this page.

This is hilarious -- but it makes a serious point. Don't take anything for granted. The last two U.S. Presidential elections were "won" by razor-thin margins. Your vote does count.

So today, get your ass to your local polling place and cast your vote. So what if there are long lines. So what if the polls indicate one ticket is way ahead in the race. So what if you are sick of hearing about politics.

Don't make excuses. Don't squander a real opportunity for positive change.

And ... don't let the sad sap in the video be YOU!


P.S. If you want to send your friends the video above with THEIR name inserted, go to

One small cavil... not "so what?" if there's long lines, "Hooray!" if there's long lines.

Go vote.

I have to say Obama's victory last night was a stunning event. The enthusiasm and emotion of the crowd in Chicago was breathtaking. What a shooting star this man is!

As momentous as these events were in the historical and political realms, I think we indie musicians can learn a lot from Obama's unique campaign. From the beginning, Obama's efforts were grassroots. And he has had a very strong presence on the internet, including myspace, facebook and twitter.

So how about a blog about this, Bob?
