Today (and last weekend) we celebrate a glorious event in 1492 when Columbus indeed sailed the ocean blue. We don’t exactly celebrate the fact that Columbus cut off natives fingers if they didn’t give him what he wanted, but really that’s not important. What’s important is that America (fuck yeah) wouldn’t be here without this guy. Well, it would be here. Whatever. On with some themed music.
Weezer – Across the Sea
The Format – Oceans
Air – Universal Traveler
The Roots – Livin’ in a New World
The Album Leaf – Into the Sea
The Weakerthans – Our Retired Explorer (Dines with Michel Foucault in Paris, 1961)
So go eat a hot dog and sit on your La-Z-Boy. It’s Columbus day, so be patriotic. Buy one of those mini American flags if possible too.
