girl talk

How to describe Girl Talk’s Feed The Animals?

It’s like a musical fantasy dream sequence. It’s like a galaxy of musical starbursts. It’s sublime. Genius. Somehow the entire album slides through my brain like greased lightening igniting the pleasure centers of my brain over (and over again.) Yes, it’s basically one, ultra long supersonic mash-up, layered (twice, thrice, four times over), twisted and braided like strands of musical DNA, and technically, you’d think something like this wouldn’t couldn’t shouldn’t work, but does it ever. Listen to it. Then invite some friends over and listen to it together over cocktails while dancing a million happy little dances!

P.S. It’s download only (here or here)

P.P.S. To my mommy friends, this is not safe for the kiddies

and we’re off!

Our President-Elect and the Presidential Transition Project have a new website:

Throughout the Presidential Transition Project, this website will be your source for the latest news, events, and announcements so that you can follow the setting up of the Obama Administration. And just as this historic campaign was, from the beginning, about you — the transition process will offer you opportunities to participate in redefining our government.

Come back often as we define new programs and possibilities to engage and be part of this administration.

And this too!

OK, I know this administration is not going to be unicorns and rainbows, but this is more than I expected already. Pinch me.

P.S. And, for those of you who are disappointed by Obama’s win (you know who you are and I love you anyway), I’m sorry for all the political posts. I know how you’re feeling right now (believe me) and my heart goes out to you. It really does. I can only hope that this new administration will surprise you and slowly win you over despite philosophical differences. xox

Secrets of the 2008 campaign: an inside, behind-the-scenes account of the presidential election produced by a special team of reporters working for more than a year on an embargoed basis and detached from the weekly magazine and Everything the project team learned was kept confidential until the day after the polls closed.

If you were following the campaign closely, I promise you will find this FASCINATING. (About 30 pages of reading and they haven’t posted the last chapter yet.)

over 130 million

More than 130 million people turned out to vote Tuesday, the most ever to vote in a presidential election.

letting it sink in


So much emotion welling up inside me as I read and watch election coverage. (I can’t sleep!) I’m fascinated by all the stories circulating about different people’s voting experiences and I simply cannot get enough TV recaps of people’s REACTIONS the moment Obama won. Peter was in Brooklyn and saw two young girls running around the block in their underwear, big ‘B’s painted on their stomachs. I watched coverage with friends at a bar in Mountain View and the whole place erupted in whoops and hugs, tears glistening in our eyes. On CNN, I saw a woman stop her car, turn up a gospel song and praise God in the street. Hallelujah, sweet Jesus!

As I sit here absorbing what actually happened a few hours ago, this win feels MASSIVE, so much larger and deeper and more expansive than I anticipated. Tonight, something happened the likes of which I don’t think we can fully comprehend just yet. Barriers have been smashed – future, past and present. And, Barack, bless his heart, is just a conduit. He’s only a vehicle through which something much larger is flowing. This is not about him and he knows it. I saw it in his face tonight. He was grateful and humbled. This win is infinitely greater then politics or race or the economy or the war, it’s the beginning of a shift in consciousness.

Things will probably get worse before they get better, but we have laid a foundation tonight that will sustain us. My heart is singing. I am inspired to be an American today.
