The basics: Egypt is a large, mostly Arab, mostly Muslim country. At around 80 million people, it has the largest population in the Middle East and the third-largest in Africa. Most of Egypt is in North Africa, although the part of the country that borders Israel, the Sinai peninsula, is in Asia….
We will be on tour with these dudes in Feb. If you haven’t checked them out I highly advise you do. They have an album coming out on pure noise next month. Pre order that shit.
“Is it sad that I look forward to when you hug me goodbye, because it’s the only time that I get to hold your body close to mine. So I’ll hold my breath, cross my fingers and try to get through to you. Hold my breath, cross my fingers and drive the whole night through. I know how, how you feel, I feel the same way too, but I know that, that you hide it better than I do. So I’ll hold my breath, cross my fingers because I just want to be with you. Hold my breath, cross my fingers because I will always love you.”
“Mika. You need to buck up. I know you think this story has no purpose other than keeping Sarah Palin’s name in the headlines for another news cycle. I know you think she has nothing to offer the national dialogue and that her speeches are just coded talking points mixed in with words picked up at random from a thesaurus. I know you think Sarah Palin is at best a self-promoting ignoramus and at worst a shameless media troll who’ll abuse any platform to deliver dog-whistle encouragement to a far right base that may include possible insurrectionists. I know you think her reality show was pathetically unstatesmanlike and I know at the same time you believe it also represents the pinnacle of her potential. And that her transparent desperation to be a celebrity so completely eclipsed her interest in public service so long ago that there would be more journalistic integrity in reporting on one of the lesser Kardashian’s ass implants. Now I know that when you arrive at the office each day you say a silent prayer that maybe, just maybe, Sarah Palin will at long last shut up for ten fucking minutes. I know. I know cuz I can see it in your eyes. Well guess what, Mika? That’s the gig. And it’s only January of 2011, kiddo. You have a minimum of two more years ahead of you. You wanna stay in this game? You dig deep, you find another gear. You show up to work every day, get your hair and makeup done, you slap on a smile, get out there on TV and repeat what Sarah Palin said on Hannity last night right into the lens. You know, news. I have faith in you, kid.”—
This was extremely funny. Props to Kyle Day for OP.
Moving Mountains and Into It. Over It. will be heading out on tour together this March. The bands will be playing all-ages shows together, so if you haven’t been able to see either of them before due to age restrictions, now’s your chance! Moving Mountains have also added two off-date shows…
Best show ever? Who wants to Roadtrip to SD with me for this?
