What should I be doing instead of this?

Look, Listen, Vote

Today is the day. No more political commercials. No more stump speeches. No more SNL appearances. No more Mike Breen clogging up his stupid music blog with stupid political shit.

You know what to do today. Stop reading this. Go do your duty.

OK, seriously, why are you still here? Well, if you're looking for some inspiration, check out some of Keith Klenowski's photos from the various "Get Out the Vote" rallies and concerts from the past several weeks. He's got shots from the Beasite Boys/Ben Harper/Sheryl Crow show in Dayton the day before Halloween, as well as shots from yesterday's talk at Xavier by Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige and Sean P Diddy Puff Daddy Wilford Brimely Combs.

All right, I'm not sure what your problem is. Is this really so compelling that you can't stop reading? Do you need a little musical inspiration? I can't think of anything better than this:

Dude!? Are you looking for something in particular? The weather? Dancing with the Stars updates? How about shopping bargains? Well, Shake It Records in Northside is offering 10% off this Tuesday and Wednesday when you sport your fancy-schmanzy "I Voted Today" sticker. I'll throw in a cookie.

What. Is. Your. Problem? Are you undecided? Don't know where to vote? Did you lose your keys? Are you on drugs?

Look, I've got things to do. Go do your thing, buy some music and come back tomorrow. And if you didn't vote, I'm kicking your ass.
