Wow, Gary Payton didn't take that loss in the finals too well. (credit: Catchdubs)

Le Tigre's "New Kicks" has been getting a lot of hate lately, and it's sort of puzzling. I only attended one of the giant anti-war protests, the one in DC in January 2003, the same day I bought my PlayStation 2 and a week before I met Bridget (busy week!), but I can vividly remember the feeling of being in a crowd of hundreds of thousands all charged up and all focused. It's a good feeling, to stand with a huge group of people to say something that you want said so loudly and forcefully and angrily. We didn't change anything, of course, but it felt good. There's a lot of that feeling in "New Kicks". I like it.
