Music: You Gotta Be More Like Todd Rokita

(Heart) Rokita Band

We managed to capture a rare performance by the (Heart) Rokita Band, a three piece band from the Greater Lafayette area, at last night’s (October 4th, 2013) Vienna Open Mic.  This bootleg is a censored version due to a request of the employees.  Apparently there were children present.

Don’t worry. Rumor has it that a complete, uncensored, polished studio version will be released soon.

You Gotta Be More Like Todd Rokita: (5:21) MP3 | OGG




You’re spectacular, but you gotta be frugal.
You’re beautiful, but you got to be honest.

You gotta be more like Todd Rokita!
Mother fucker don’t never do no wrong!

You always do what’s best for us.
3/5 of the 4th District got your back.

You gotta be more like Todd Rokita!
Mother fucker don’t never do no wrong!

Insidious people write insidious laws.
Don’t worry Congressman, we gerrymandered for the cause.

We should all be more like Todd Rokita!
Mother fucker don’t never do no wrong!

Mutual knowledge.
I know. You know. We know. They know.

In this episode we hear a wonderfully delightful rendition of a nursery rhyme, the favorite parts of the Kentucky Derby, a little historical preaching of Richard Stallman starting the GNU System, Cameron’s obscene birthday observations, an unknown acoustic song, how to save water damaged books, a story about a pejorative princess, freezing books when floods are inconvenient to your schedule.
