I promise nothing until finals are over... see you in a few weeks.

Update: The Library Hotel reached a settlement with the Dewey Decimal folks. Book lovers can breathe easily once again.
The Michael Jackson website spoofing has begun.

This post makes up for the lameness of the last few weeks of postings. Behold the glory of the Chapman brothers as they jump rope for Jesus.

After a viewing of Tron yesterday, I have come to the objective conclusion that it is in every way vastly superior to the Matrix Trilogy.
"I've got a little challenge for you Sark: a new recruit. He's a tough case, but I want him treated in the usual manner. Train him for the games. Let him hope for a while. Then blow him away."
For all your Christmas shopping needs: heavenly gear. They must be out of stock on the black Nikes....

This has potential.

In geek news, one of my favorite characters has been brought back to Angel. Lindsay (and perhaps his evil hand!) has returned! All hail team Whedon. This season has been excellent overall... IMHO this show is much more solid and entertaining than Buffy.
Some rather bizarre short pilots over at Channel 101, including several Jack Black contirbutions that don't exactly highlight his comedic talents...

From a time when cartoons still had hair on their chests... WWII Propaganda Cartoons. I know it's a little warped, but I love these. Nothing like marketing a little war mongering and racism to the kids. My favorite one is a Donald Duck toon, "The Spirit," which has the endearing message that we should all work hard so that we can pay more taxes in order to drop more bombs on Germans. And check out this one on how children become nazis. The imagery towards the end showing the bible turning into Mein Kampf and a crucifix morphing into a Nazi dagger is especially fun.

Vermont to secede.

"As Naylor started drafting 'The Vermont Manifesto' two years ago and formed the Second Vermont Republic, 'Some people laughed at me. Most just ignored it.'"

Giant Robots, Atomic Weapons, Death Rays.. need I say more?

I've really been digging the postings over at Low Culture lately, check out this bit on magazines that have compared themselves to Vanity Fair and this one on the Fox hypocrisy towards sex scandals and their reality shows.
Though I'm not especially interested in the book being reviewed, this piece on tolerance and liberalism by Loren Lomasky is a good read.

The ultimate performance art piece.

Read the Pieces of Flair Screenplay.
Nothing like a little torture to liven up a party.

I'd seen rumors of a Goonies sequel a while back, but it didin't sound very promising, but now that Spielberg has bought the script, this might actually happen. Incidentally, I also spotted Josh Brolin in the snack bar area of the giant Loews Multiplex on 42nd St. last week - a sighting definitely worth one of Ted's 2nd Rate Celebrity Sightings.

A nice collection of amusing church signs.

A whole world of disturbing over at Be sure to check out the lawtoons and a not so comforting Magic 8 Ball.

Despite being a confirmed (?!?) Episcopalian, I really couldn't care less about the gayness or lack thereof regarding bishops, but now that I see the new gay Episcopal Bishop is endorsing socialized health care, I want to see him tarred, feathered, and walked off a short plank.
City Journal weighs in on the rise of conservative/libertarian views in the media. Interesting read:

As the show’s co-creator, 32-year-old Matt Stone, sums it [South Park] up: “I hate conservatives, but I really fucking hate liberals.”

There is hope yet.

I always thought Enrique Inglesias was an overrated asshole, now there's proof. (Sure hope this isn't a hoax.... would take all the fun out of it.)
Llamas, Monkeys, and Melting Penises, oh my!

Another installment of the Star Wars Kid saga.... Adult Swim gives us the Space Ghost Kid.
Now doesn't that just sound yummy....

That does suck. Fortunately, there is probably someone out there with a fetish for girls that are into braining.

And Meredith begins braining herself with her keyboard in a fit of existential fury as she realizes that not even the other blogger on this site reads her posts.......... (See October 3)
I'm not sure if Pumpkin Dog fits the bill, but here's a site devoted to the worst Halloween costumes ever.

Excellent quote, and good mental image:

"With their third (and hopefully, final) Matrix movie, the Wachowski brothers have delivered a dud so disappointing, they may as well have bussed in Ewoks to save Zion."
Well, it's about time

California Town Votes to Love Nature:

Sponsored by a local woman known for wearing hats made of tree bark and newspaper, Measure G won 314 to 152 in the town of 1,200.

The text of the measure, in its entirety: "Vote for Bolinas to be a socially acknowledged nature-loving town because to like to drink the water out of the lakes to like to eat the blueberries to like the bears is not hatred to hotels and motor boats. Dakar. Temporary and way to save life, skunks and foxes (airplanes to go over the ocean) and to make it beautiful."

Tenacious D spoofs David Blaine.

"Yesterday, Black and partner Kyle Gass pledged a gesture as grand as their music, saying they would starve themselves while dangling above Times Square for 45 days - or until their new DVD sold 1 million copies.
'Kyle is going to bring a guitar, and if we need extra nourishment, we will live off the power of each other's rock,' Black said.
MTV's 'Total Request Live' broadcast Black and Gass being hoisted above Times Square at Broadway and 45th St., entering a glass-like box with nothing but a guitar and a bucket."

They lasted about an hour.

It's the end of the world as we know it... *sing along now* ...and I feel fine....
Now this is a sport I could get into.

Ok, so I'm a sucker for legos.
Childish but funny - Presidential Nicknames for American and World Leaders.
Update on the Simpsons/ Fox news thing... it was all a joke.
