songs you don’t know: The Dresden Dolls and The Luminescent Orchestra covering “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)”

The picture quality here ain’t so good, but the sound is amazing. Also, they’re covering the Eurythmics version, and not the Manson version, because they’re that cool.

The Dresden Dolls, by the by, are the Official Punk Cabaret Band of GeekUSA.

(the Official Cereal of GeekUSA, by the way: Barbara’s Bakery’s Peanut Butter Puffins)

John Edwards to drop out

According to Yahoo! (via the AP), John Edwards will be dropping out of the presidential race today.

See, I’ve gone back and forth over the past few months between Obama and Edwards.  I find the way Obama speaks inspiring, but I find the things Edwards says to be equally inspiring.   He’s right: there are two Americas, and most of the problems with this country could be fixed by first admitting that, yep, class is important here, and that things are stacked against poor folk to an unfair degree.

I look at both Obama and Edwards, and I think that I want to live in a country where one of those two could be President, because not only are they charismatic but they actually seem to care.  Edwards seems to care just a little too much sometimes, but maybe that’s why I respected him and might’ve voted for him on Super Tuesday.

He’ll make a great Attourney General, though, won’t he?

Fascinating stuff.  Of course, me being me, I had to go and mention the Slitheen from Doctor Who in my comment….
