Default Vanishing Point rules!

Vanishing Point is a great film! I wrote a bit about Kowalsky and the America he was riding through (away from) here, way back in February. . .

Default Take the Power Back

Some of the ole timers will have to turn down their hearing aids, but RATM voice speaks to the greater issues of revolution, grievances, and small wars.

Damn Steve. Just listened to Vietnow. I'm all fired up and ready to mobilize. Problem is that I don't have a grievance or ideology. Maybe we should just stick with something a bit more subtle.

Even with just these few responses its pretty evident that the broad spectrum of views on the board doesn't lend itself to selection of a single representative "theme song".

As for me, I'll go with Damage Case.

There should at least be something interesting happening while the song plays!

With that, a little Abrams and HBLOCKX doing none other than, The Power
