A Public Service Announcement from: Bloggin' For Democracy
What follows is a public service announcement from Bloggin' for Democracy, a coalition of musicbloggers that coalesced recently to attempt to turn some of the energy and readership we have here around into getting asses into voting booths. If you'd like to join in, just copy this post and toss it up on your own blog, website, messageboard, whatever. If you want the text all handily precoded for you, just email me.
Hey!! Stop what you're doing! You're not going to find that Arcade Fire live bootleg today, you're not going to stumble across the b-side to "Hand In Glove", and you're not going to find the unreleased Pixies album. What you need to do is get ready to vote in the most important election of our lives.
Find your polling place and prepare to vote. Tell your friends to vote, tell your enemies for that matter. But just vote. If you are not a U.S. citizen than please call or email all your American friends and make sure they plan on voting. Participation by all is crucial.
What follows are a bunch of links. Some are funny. Some are helpful. Some are to crappy official websites for really good people. Some are for crappy official websites fo really bad people. I'm not going to tell you not to vote if I disagree with you. I'm going to tell you to go and campaign for your own guy because thats what Democracy is about. So even he gets a link.
Internet Vets for Truth - Comprehensive site containing all those MP3's and Videos and Memes that have been spreading for months. A fantastic piece of work, with a staggering pipe of bandwidth.
