Grandpa Neil has a Song for You

Some curmudgeons one just can't compete with. Neil Young's new album is full of songs about hybrid cars and revenue streams and hedge funds, but the title cut, "Fork in the Road", is one of his funniest ever. Go watch the video about blogging in the dark and repossessing your flat-panel TV and "bailout coming but it's not for me" and "support the troops in the fuckin war whose idea was that?" etc, etc. Video is here.

"In my day, we had cinnamon girls and gold rushes and spliffs as big as your arm. Not like this 21st century shit." Long may you run, old man.

Neil's getting pretty predictable at releasing a full new album every 18 months or so, not bad for an AARP member. There's a bonus version of the new album with a DVD, really cheap through bestbuy.com
