A musical interlude

At some point during the presidential campaign -- it all seems so long ago -- we aimed a link at "Dick is a Killer." With all due respect to JibJab, we thought "Dick" -- a fierce sampling of POTUS put to an infectious beat -- was the best bit of political entertainment to come across our screen since George W. Bush asked, "Need some wood?" OK, maybe "Dick" came before Bush discovered that he owned a timber company. Whatever. "Dick" killed us during the campaign, and it -- he -- is still killing us today.

We have somehow found ourselves in a very "Deep Throat" sort of correspondence with the man -- we think he's a man -- behind "Dick," and he has kept us in the loop now and again when he releases new cuts. He's out with something new this week, and -- with apologies to Audiofile -- we feel we'd be remiss if we didn't point you in its direction. If you're up for a little Rolling Stones-meets-Eminem-meets-the-President-of-the-United-States, get yourself to "My Name is Rx." And if you don't know "Dick," check it out while you're there.
