Well it’s been a very exciting day, and now I’m pretty damned thrilled to announce that Donita Sparks, formerly of L7 and the author of such anthemic songs as Let’s Pretend We’re DeadShitlist and Can I Run, will be joining the FDL crew as our music columnist.  She’s going to be doing a whole bunch of innovative stuff — from introducing new music, video podcasting of requested cover songs and all sorts of other assorted mischief — each Friday morning at 11:00 am (debuting this coming Friday).

She’ll also be around to chat with folks which will undoubtedly include me because Donita is my idol and I happen to be her biggest, most unapologetic fan in the world. The fabulous Fini Finito who runs the MySpace Page for the Roots Project will be helping her out with the technical side of things, so we hope to be pushing the bloggy outer limits .

In the mean time you can enjoy Donita’s new video, Infancy of a Disaster, courtesy of YouTube (above).

And if anyone has found any YouTube treasures recently, feel free to leave them in the comments for the rest of us YouTube addicts. Time for some pre-4th of July musical fireworks.

(PS — Teddy’s first diary could use a few recommends from Kossacks over here.)
