Saturday night links

On 1/17/2001 the Onion gave us this classic. Damn, was that prescient.

Today, we get this, every sentence of which is priceless. Reading it makes me as hopeful as the 2001 article made me despair.

On a related note, this WaPo article talking about various Bush decisions that Team Obama is already planning to overturn. The 1st 100 Days are going to be something to behold, it looks like. The article specifcally refers to the federal ban on embryonic stem cell research, the ban on family planning groups from mentioning abortion, and the asinine prevention of California from regulating C02 emissions from cars.

The next four years are going to be rough in some ways, but at least the ship of state is no longer being piloted by Mr. 20% any longer....

And, for the hell of it, here's a fantastic video of Tool ripping it the fuck up in a little bitty club in '92, in front of what sounds like a couple dozen people who are definitely getting their money's worth.

There's a whole bunch of these videos from the same set, and they're all amazing. For being taken on a VHS camcorder, the sound is pretty awesome.
