Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

While we await some Important Documents, let me distract you with this.

No doubt you recall last week's Greatest Video Ever (as opposed to this week's), in which German musicmaker Flula Borg pays homage to his "most favorite Basketballer from all times," one Dirk Nowitzki. Well, so happens that Borg -- and, yes, resistance is futile -- has posted to his Facebook page a free-for-downloadings version of "His Name Is Dirk (Nowitzki)," which is an abbreviated and altogether reworked version of his December 2009 single "Dirk41," for which I paid 99 cents on iTunes last week, damn it.

You can hear the song below. Or download it


. Borg has also made "His Name is Dirk" available as a ringtone. Just in time for tomorrow night's Game One of the Western Conference Finals -- or Red River Shootout Redux: This Time, It's Professional.


Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
