The Oh-oh's

The two-thousands, the zero's, the aughts (wtf?) Paul Krugman dubbed it The Big Zero... whatever this decade will be called– it's going bye-bye. And not a year too soon.... good bye and good riddance. This decade sucked balls!

Here's why:

sad Lolo The Bush Administration

Nothing says "fuck you, voters" like having the President elected for you by a vulture-headed old fart (no offense to vultures). That "Dubya" turned out to be the most careless and most incompetent executive is a foregone conclusion. Most unfortunate, however, is the mess he left behind. We're still paying for that mistake.

sad Lolo 9-11

sad Lolo Katrina Disaster
You've seen the photos. You saw the reports of the sheer hopelessness of those it affected. All our prez could express was, "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job!"

sad Lolo Recession of '08
As if we needed more stress that year. Dealing with the threat of Bush Pt. III and a Barbie-doll VP, here comes Wall Street bursting at the seams.

sad Lolo Bernie Madoff
...made off with all your moneys, If you were an investor

sad Lolo Bank Bailout
If you weren't an investor, they made off with all your moneys :(
Neo-capitalism: privatize the profits, socialize the losses.

Ness New Music
If there was any consolation to the masses it was in the emerging indie music scene. Ahhh this was the decade that brought us The Postal Service, Helio Sequence, Broken Social Scene, Belle and Sebastian, Gorillaz, Badly Drawn Boy... plus we got tons of new stuff from established acts like Modest Mouse and Radiohead.

Other than that, however, it was gloom and doom through and through...

The Oh-oh's–– we're glad to see you go-go!
