Watch it and weep, people. This is no parody.
This is so true. I love this! I forget that a lot of loving California is actually the act of getting together with like-minded people and bitching about how much we hate it. I mean, there's a lot to love about CA, but, what I love is getting together with all the people who do not seem stereotypically "Californian" and go, "Gawd, did you see that obnoxious overtanned and botoxed bimbo nearly run over a homeless person with a Hummer? Shaaa!*"
And that reminds me of my favorite Decemberists song:
Or you can do the live version accompanied by the LA Phil, which I kinda love despite the poor live quality --- the soaring, over-the-top schmaltz of the strings makes for a nice contrast with this hatesong.
* Shaw? Shaha? You might have had to be here to know how to pronounce/spell it. It's post "Fer sure!" and pre "OMG!" ---- about the same time as some of my poor unfortunate friends from the state's hinterlands were saying "cool beans." We won't even go into the hella/hecka divide, or debate the use of the "the" in front of freeway numbers.
