hump day shortlist: dedicated to the one I love

Okay guys, it's time for yet another confession: I can't get enough Sarah Palin.

I like to think of it as a "hate-crush", i.e. I hate everything she stands for and yet I can't look away. I don't know what I'd do without her, besides feel less regularly insulted by McCain's obvious misogyny. Sometimes I learn things about her and think they must be joking, like that thing about hunting for wolves in a helicopter. I thought that was too crazy to be real until about a week ago when I heard that she also offers a bonus to hunters who can bring her the severed foreleg of a wolf.

It was then that I realized: Bitch is a fairy-tale villain! And didn't you always love the villains?

So who's the fairest in the land?

Consignment shop you say? How indie.

But this wolf thing really got me thinking. This could be trouble for about five or ten bands off the top of my head and probably about 500 more, for one simple reason: wolves are pretty rad.

Today's shortlist is brought to you by wolves everywhere.

Sea Wolf -"You're a Wolf"

Patrick Wolf-"The Libertine"

Wolf Eyes- A bunch of goddamn noise

Peter Wolf-"Lights Out"

Is it too cliche for me to close out the list with my favorite Wolf band?
Too bad.

damn, I love singing along to that riff, the one that goes nerrrr-ner-ner-ner-ner-ner-nerrrr-ner-ner

I'd already seen that video and knew exactly which riff you were talking about. Man, I would nerrrr-ner-ner-ner-ner-ner-nerrrr-ner-ner Spencer Krug so gently it's not even funny.
