The Spin I’m In: Vote, Baby, Vote

I have butterflies in my stomach. I’m really excited and scared at the same time.

This time next week I’m either going to have the most kick-ass party Spin or a really depressing/ apocalyptic one. As for this week, The Spin I’m In is dedicated to and inspired by all of the FDL community members who are in or on their way to Connecticut to join Jane and TRex for the big showdown on Tuesday: M/Valley Girl, Rev Deb, wxyz, milleneryman, Karen Allen, siun, scarecrow, urban Pirate, Eric T. I know I’ve missed some of you rebel rousers so this goes for you too!

Let’s send some energizing vibes out to all of the Lamont workers and to the voters of Connecticut through music. Let them know the songs that fuel your fire and really get you going in the comments section. Music is a way powerful mojo!

Power To The People, Right On!
