Can't wait for the night to come, that's when the fun really begins- "Shoegaze"- Alabama Shakes
Week three and it's time to play some real big boy football. I don't need any narratives or sub-narratives, just let's see what we got against a good team. And since I am in a no bullshit kind of mood, I feel that there is only one man who can convey my feelings properly, his name is Dale Peterson. Take it away Dale:
Right out of the gate, a picture of the constitution, dog tags and the foul anchor Marine Corp emblem. This is gonna be 'Merican AF!
Here comes Dale and his gallant steed, as one does in 2010 when this was made. He rattles his life accomplishments. I think the quick edits might have cut a few Dale's life accomplishments, like: Lifelong Brony! Lady Gaga enthusiast! And of course OG member of T Swift's #squad. Or or maybe some racist shit, you be the judge.
Now Dale is about to take you to school. The Alabama Ag Commissioner is one of the most important positions in Alabama (it's not), it's responsible for 5 billion dollars (closer to 34 million.) But facts aren't important because THUGS AND CRIMINALS! That is some solid misdirection right there. I do get a little lost though, are the thugs and criminals stealing Alabama's money? All I know is whoever it is they don't give a RIP!
Dale fear mongers a little bit more, but then starts in on his opponents. I hope the Alabama primaries are like Dale describes, where the other candidates get together Sooby Doo style to steal poor Dale's handmade campaign signs.
Now the coup de gras, Dale asks what kind of dummy would support his competitors? Quick cut to the horse, who is probably thinking,"Well right now...." and here comes the rifle with the slogan WE'RE BETTER THEN THAT!
Unfortunately Dale Peterson ended up third in the Alabama Republican GOP, but in my mind he is still out in the Alabama country side, riding Skipper (the original horse sided with his competitor and hasn't been seen since.) Taking names and not taking any bullshit. God Bless you Dale Peterson. And BTHO Auburn!!

After years of silence all the former members of Rage sure are making a lot of music lately

It's not the Kings I fell in love with in the early 2000's, but it's a whole hell of a lot better then their last few offerings

I love D.R.A.M, I also love party rap
