This is my 1,500th post.

Yay me! Thanks to all of you who visit here... especially those who share comments.

The last time I marked a milestone was six months ago – my 1,000th post. Which happened to be a live blog of the Pennsylvania Democratic primary.

Hillary Clinton won in Pennsylvania. That gave her troubled campaign a big boost... while putting fear into the hearts of some Obama supporters. (MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said, “I think Barack Obama has a problem with working white people.”)

That was then. Polls this week show Obama leading John McCain in Pennsylvania by 12 points... 14 points... 15 points... 16 points.

What a long strange trip it’s been.

The night of the Pennsylvania primary, Republican commentator Bill Bennett on CNN hammered Obama on his association with “former terrorists.” Yep, the Bill Ayers/Weather Underground thing.

For six months, this has been a Republican talking point! And it never gained traction with the people. You know why, Mr. Bennett? You know why, Sean Hannity? Because the Cold War is OVER, fucksticks!

Now... below is a treat for funk-loving Obama fans (and/or Obama- loving funk fans): Legendary horn blowers Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis back up a no-name musician (named Willie Amrod) on a loose-but-swingin’ pro-Obama jam.

Congrats Blackman! 1500 posts is no mean feat. When did you start blogging?

LOL @ fucksticks! Hilarious. But it really HAS been a long and strange journey. Unfortunately it's not yet over, but it seems to be going in Obama's favor. Yay! Obama/Biden 2008!

Thanks, Villager. I started in December 2006. I will be in need of an intervention soon.

I can't hear/read the name Bill Bennett without thinking about his final (crime) solution. Jack arse.

Anyway.... Hurray, UBM! Already looking forward to your 2000th!

Congrats man. If you've been checking the stats, I'm the dude reading your weblog from Iran.

Dave,

I visit UBM very often and enjoy virtually everything I see/read. You've gotten me interested in music again and my iPod has about 200 50's-60's-70's songs I haven't heard for decades.

Regardless of the outcome of the election, I will be avoiding downtown Baltimore on the evening of November 4th. Probably too much excitement, either way, for an old white guy...

Thanks

YAY for the 1500th post, UBM!
I really like this blog - your thoughts, your music, and the comments people drop. Very educational (sometimes scary, sometimes irritating, but always enlightening). Thank you for sharing your perspective. :)

You must be SuperHuman, UBM. I didn't think it was possible for one person to do 500 posts in six months. Damn, you make us all look bad. Keep em coming

Every day I need to get my UBM fix. Thanks for all 1,500 of them. How are you going to top yourself?
