Taking Ames

Well, I’m officially calling my summer sabbatical over. I’ve missed too many important stories. The debt ceiling debate and resolution, the NFL Lockout, Syria, London. I might circle back on a few. I had ideas brewing and couldn’t make it happen, in part, because I attended a NYC wedding at a castle. Yeah, toys, a real dragon-in-the-dungeon, damsel-in-distress castle. One of my best homeboys got married and I was honored to participate. So, yeah, I’m on some Sir ipoetlaureate steez from here on out.

Today’s song blog briefly runs through the Iowa Straw Poll from this weekend. It is one of the many quirks of our “democracy.” Suffice it to say the event includes livestock, fried butter on a stick, and votes for pay. If somehow you missed it, Michelle Bachmann won. But, Rick Perry only announced his candidacy on Saturday and Romney declined to participate.

As this site is purposefully non-partisan, I have been hesitant to do any candidates surveys for fear of implying bias (one way or the other). But, I’m going to do a fall primary series of sorts regardless of the precise and, as of yet, undetermined contours. It might include individual candidate songs, which might be fun. It may include derision but only because that’s more entertaining than truth. We’ll see. I have a lot of projects half-baked and I’m trying to get them served.

Thanks for supporting rap news.
