Maintaining Optimism in the Face of Reality. Occasional observations on the state of the world, society, business and politics. Usually anchored by facts, always augmented by opinion.
Two words: Buy It. Three more words: Buy It Now.
I picked it up after voting today. This soundtrack lets you appreciate just how good the Parker and Stone team are at creating genuine musicals. Some highlights:
- A great longer version of "America F**k Yeah!"
- Kim Jong-Il singing "I'm so Ronery" (lyrics here)
- "The End of An Act" (a.k.a. "Pearl Harbor Sucked and I Miss You")
- "Montage" ("If you need to go from beginner to pro, you need a montage....Even Rocky had a montage").
Also, you might want to pick up the soundtrack to the South Park movie. After all, its lead track, "Blame Canada," was nominated for an Oscar. With the way Parker and Stone abuse the Hollywood elite in Team America, I don't think you'll be seeing any nominations this year. And "Everyone Has AIDS" just doesn't seem quite as likely to be embraced by Hollywood as "Blame Canada."
