    Too bad about the the religious brain damage, but damn, she has some great songs. [2] Seriously, what a huge disappointment that someone who used to put out such good music has such horrific views.
  • Haven't listened to her in a while...Too bad about the the religious brain damage, but damn, she has some great songs.
  • Good News. You can watch Anchorage here: http://www.jukebo.com/michelle-shocked/music-clip,anchorage,x5pxsl.html
  • I used to think Michelle S sucked with her feminist folkisie sardonic nonsense all those years back. However I am starting to respect her now for having the guts to go against the grain and speak her mind in a country that has torn up the first amendment and speaking your truth can ruin you.
  • @kakktus, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection don't worry, it can be treated!
  • @sunheadbowed BWAHAHAHA! I totally agree! I saw "miodan60" pictures on his FB page, and he has a mean case of the gay face. LOL

  • miodan60 is totally a heterosexual.

  • Aww, so this is how modern, tolerant, progressive liberal and broandminded part of society talk. Congratulations, I'm pround of You!
