Every revolution needs fresh theme music. Especially one organized by contemporary counter-culture warriors, who tend to have eclectic tastes. I'm not sure what they've been rocking down at Occupy Wall Street - just that the activists there got a boost from Immortal Technique the other day - but the shit I've seen online leads me to believe it ain't Bruno Mars
I have a strong feeling that Sergei Kharitonov will get knocked out during tomorrow (Saturday) night's Strikeforce throwdown in New Jersey (airs on Showtime at 10pm).
