California Governor Schwarzenegger hooks UK Prime Minister Tony Blair up with Apple iPod

“The playlists include California pop tunes, San Francisco/Bay Area pop tunes, SF and California rock bands and ‘classical/Misc.’ Who put this all together?

  1. I wonder if it includes California Uber Alles. That would be hilarious.

    For those who don’t remember California Uber Alles it’s a protest song by the dead kennedeys about Jerry Brown and was later covered by The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy about Pete Wilson. Also Jello Biafra rewrote it with references to Schwarzenegger but I haven’t heard that version yet. I hope Tony Blair got all 3 versions.

  2. His wife will add it to her freeby collection. Blair is on record for being the dimboid where such tech is concerned.

    Meanwhile Microsoft is Blair’s choice back in poor old Blighty…
