Hilarious Thing of the Day!
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE Eminem fan.
Ok, well, that's a total lie, but after watching his arthouse/graphic design snipershot video Mosh, I can honestly say that I don't think I've heard a more rallying political cry from the streets since Public Enemy dropped "Fight the Power" back in Ninteen Eighty Nine (the number, another summer).
Really powerful. You should watch it. All the way to the end.
An AMG classic: The All Music Guide page to Ross Geller.
"After finding his keyboard Ross began playing again and soon found his own, very special sound again. After making his audience stunned performing live at the Central Perk he started his own record company and released the album Ross."
Orleans is pretty pissed that Bush is using their song "Still the One" in a Campaign Commercial.
We're still havin' fun...
Homestarrunner Halloween Adventure
Homestar's dressed up as Carl Spackler from Caddyshack, so he's got that goin' for him.
Episode III Teaser Poster.
Look! He's got a cape! ...oh wait...I get it.
Here's SFW footage of a woman flashing her boob behind home plate at this Red Sox game.
"Hi, I'm on the phone...yep...what's that? You can see me on TV? Really? ...what's that? Flash the entire nation? OK! Can you hear me now? Good."
Scariest Halloween Costumes 2004:
Like "Florida Touchscreen Voting Booth" and "The Widowed Nancy Regan."
It's never too early to get your daughter into her first little black dress! This elegant approximation of former First Lady Nancy Reagan's moving moment alone with her husband's casket is as touching as it is scary. With just a flag, a casket, a simple black dress, and Grandma's old wig, any little girl can be America's Widow®!
Total cost: Between $25 and $25,000 (depending on the cost of the casket).
Total time: Under an hour.

Hilarious/Terrifying Thing of the Day!
Film of a very, very bratty boy named George:.
oooh, what a naughty little president you are!
Serious Thing For A Second:
If you are at all curious for a snapshot of where the three (yes, three) candidates stand PickYourPresident.com gives you the basic view on the candidates' views.
Abortion, Death Penalty, Education, Evironment, and the rest.
Other Serious Thing:
Washtenaw County Proposals outlined Here:
Statewide: Proposal 04-1 = Lottery
Statewide: Proposal 04-2 = Gay Marriage
Countywide: Proposal A = Parks & Rec
WCC: Proposal B = Washtenaw Community College millage restoration.
Citywide: Proposal C = Medical Marijuana
Other Other Serious Thing:
Appropriately titled "Whatever It Takes", the new Bush/Cheney ad uses Bush's convention acceptance speech, stirring music, and images of dedicated troops and families in the heartland. It also uses Photoshopped images to turn a small crowd into a large one:
And it's lousy photoshopping!
Last Serious Thing, I Swear to God
A local TV station had an embedded crew that shot video of bunkers of explosives after the invasion of Iraq. It looks like they have footage of the now-missing explosives from Al Qaqaa, which means they disappeared after the US came in.
Here’s the video:
Hee Hee. "Al Kaa-kaa"
Finally, for fun: Homestarrunner Jack-o-Lantern Stencils.

Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 2004
Dr. Hunter S. Thompson chimes in on the election.
"America... just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable."
Great Van Halen commentary from the guy in The Supersuckers:
Election words from Eddie Spaghetti
That's right, it's down to the nitty gritty. I know that many of
you think that my emails should consist strictly of liquor, women,
drugs and killing, rock-n-roll, outlaw country and the occasional
joke or two and to you, I apologize. Feel free to bury your head in
the sand once more and delete this missive now because I am here to
use my (very nominal) influence to tell our fans to please get out
and vote for a change this Tuesday.
To my republican friends (and I hope you are still my friends if
you've made it this far into my email) I have this rock-n-roll
analogy for you:
Let's say that the Republican Party is Van Halen and (for the sake
of argument we will time travel quite a bit) Abraham Lincoln is the
David Lee Roth of Republicans. An ass kicking, slave-freeing,
minimize-the-government-in-our-lives bad ass. The glory years. Then
let's say that Sammy Hagar is the Ronald Reagan character, he totally
lost the die-hards, but for some reason Van Halen had never been more
popular. Hit after hit. The Van Halen machine makes more money than
anyone thought possible! Next, sadly, it's time to enter that guy
from Extreme, Gary Cherone. Here is our G.W. Bush. Even the most
dyed-in-the-wool Van Halen fans have to admit, this was one bad
idea, it didn't work and, thankfully we only had to put up with one
record from this version of the Republican Par..., uh, I mean... Van
Halen. Gary made Van Halen so bad that Sammy Hagar returning actually
seems to be a GOOD idea!
So there you go, even Republicans have to admit that G.W. has
totally "Gary Cheroned" this Presidency, don't you think? I thought
this would help clear things up for you. Now get out there and buy
one of those "Republicans For Kerry" stickers and help us make this
change. Sure Kerry's no Diamond Dave either, but who is anymore? It's
not like Van Halen's gonna ask ME to sing for 'em...
Eddie "One more week until I can stop being obsessed with this election" Spaghetti.
Hey, will one of you bishops tell Porchsleeper to shut the fuck up?
I can hear 'em from here.

Hilarious Thing of the Day!
This guy on Tech TV just finishes getting done saying how valuable and one-of-a-kind this wax cylinder is, when he shatters it with his big dumb hands.
Then he wants to say the "F" Word, thinks better of it because he's on TV, and says "Shit" instead.
This is fun:
IKEA (ee-KAY-uh) is coming to Canton!
IKEA is pronounced "ee-kay-uh" by Swedes and other continental Europeans. In the English-speaking world it is pronounced "eye-kee-uh," rhyming with the word "idea."
Virtual Light by William Gibson (368 pp. paperback)
Hey! A William Gibson novel I liked! It was like Snow Crash, but not as good!
Here is a terrific collection of photos of the damage caused by Hurricane Ivan.
I like the piece of plywood driven directly through the tree.

I think on Wednesday, there will be some sort of major evacuation in New York City, causing the Terror Alert to be elevated to Orange.
Probably some kind of media outlet: Major newspaper, TV station, popular magazine, something like that.
I'm thinking some sort of chemical weapon scare, like Anthrax in an envelope or something like that, but I'm also getting a strong sense of "undesclosed terrorist activity" which would do the trick just as easily.
I'm partial to this idea because it would get instant media coverage, bring 9/11 instantly to mind, and do the job of scaring the American public into electing George Bush (legitimately this time).
PJ thinks that on Thursday, there will be some sort of scare in a public school or polling place, causing the Terror Alert to be elevated to Orange.
She was voting for "undesclosed terrorist activity" as the reported cause.
This is also a pretty viable option, since this could keep people out of the polls.
I guess my earlier prediction of the Bush Administration pulling Osama Bin Ladin out of a spider hole in October may have passed us by, but keep in mind: If we keep guessing, sooner or later we might be right!
Footage of Ashlee Simpson performing career suicide:
Singer Ashlee Simpson left the "live" out of "Saturday Night Live" this weekend in an aborted performance that culminated with the singer scrambling offstage after viewers heard her recorded voice -- singing the wrong song -- while her actual mouth stayed shut.
After first playing "Pieces of Me," the sister of singer Jessica returned later in the show to perform "Autobiography." But the sound engineers responsible for providing the music part of the performance mistakenly piped in "Pieces" again, and Simpson and her quote-fingers band fidgeted uncomfortably while the canned band played on (complete with the singer's recorded vocals). After just 35 seconds -- and an impromptu hoedown dance -- Ashlee scampered off, abandoning her band onstage.
On Sunday, her record company, Geffen, blamed "a computer glitch," but reaction on the singer's Web site was swift and judgmental. "Finally, you're exposed for the fraud that you are," wrote drdrewby. "You have cheated your fans and people who actually thought that you had a lick of talent."
Added CowboyJeff99: "I knew she sounded like crap live, so I was 'wondering' what was going on when her voice sounded like the radio edit."
But the principals involved shrugged it off. "What can I say, folks -- live TV!" host Jude Law gamely offered in the show's goodbye, as Simpson bravely laid the blame at the feet of her band: "[They] started playing the wrong song!"
The best is Jude Law's face on that "SNL will be right back" graphic at the end...like "Oh My God. Did you just see that?"
A quote from a Lucky magazine interview where she was asked about lip-synching:
"I'm totally against it and offended by it," she said. "I'm going out to let my real talent show, not to just stand there and dance around. Personally, I'd never lip-synch. It's just not me."
Apparently her Dad blames heartburn.
That's cool. It makes my stomach hurt too.
Maeve found this story about a lady who broke into a house, started remodelling and changed some of the utilities into her name.
Kinda like "Trading Spaces"...but more like "Taking Places" I guess.
What's that? Futurama' David X. Cohen and Ice Cube? Together at last?
Ice Cube & David Cohen, creator of the animated series "Futurama," have teamed up to create a half-hour animated comedy about an early 80's Hip-Hop group. "Grandmaster Freak & the Furious 15" details the exploits of a rap crew in Englewood, New Jersey & their leader, 17-year-old high school student, Grandmaster Freak.
A guy sticks his head into a barber shop and asks,
"How long before I can get a haircut?"
The barber looks around the shop and says, "About 2 hours." The guy leaves.
A few days later the same guy sticks his head in the door and asks, 'How long before I can get a haircut?" The barber looks around at the shop full of customers and says,
"About 3 hours." The guy leaves.
A week later the same guy sticks his head in the shop and asks,
"How long before I can get a haircut?" The barber looks around the shop and says, "About an hour and a half." The guy leaves.
The barber who is intrigued by this time, looks over at a friend in the shop and says, "Hey, Bill. Follow that guy and see where he goes."
A little while later, Bill comes back into the shop, laughing hysterically. The barber asks, "Bill, where did he go when he left here?"
Bill looks up, tears in his eyes and says,
Our Man in Guatemala:
Maybe a bit stuffy for datawhat...but check this out:
University of Maryland did a study to capture the world view of supporters of Bush and Kerry on issues such as Iraq, WMD, world wide perceptions of the U.S, Kyoto treaty and tons of other stuff...
Study shows that all the way down the line Bush supporters overwhelmingly hold beliefs wildly divergent from reality.
Nice to see science confirming what we all suspected.
Hi Ashlee!!! Hiiiii!!!

Reading is Fundamental :: A Plea from Lee in NYC:
maybe you guys can help me out with my new project.

How many of the Bush administration are needed to replace a light bulb?
The Answer is TEN:
1. One to deny that a lightbulb needs to be changed,
2. One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the lightbulb needs to be changed,
3. One to blame Clinton for burning out the lightbulb,
4. One to tell the nations of the world that they are either for changing the lightbulb or for darkness,
5. One to give a billion dollar no-bid contract to Haliburton for the new lightbulb,
6. One to arrange a photograph of Bush, dressed as a janitor, standing on a step ladder under the banner "Lightbulb Change Accomplished",
7. One administration insider to resign and write a book documenting in detail how Bush was literally "in the dark",
8. One to viciously smear #7,
9. One surrogate to campaign on TV and at rallies on how George Bush has had a strong light-bulb-changing policy all along,
10. And finally, One to confuse Americans about the difference between screwing a lightbulb and screwing the country.

Jon Stewart on Crossfire.
A lot of people are talking about this. He basically makes an empassioned plea to the hosts of CNN's "debate" program Crossfire, asking them to re-think their partisan "spinning" and create an actual forum for political discussion.
CARLSON: You had John Kerry on your show...and you're accusing us of partisan hackery?
CARLSON: You've got to be kidding me. He comes on and you...
STEWART: You're on CNN! The show that leads into me is puppets making crank phone calls!
What is wrong with you?
Awesome Find Of The Weekend:
I was hanging out in Office Depot (or Office Max...Or Max Depot...whatever) looking at printer labels, and I noticed that on Avery's Matte White High Visisbilty Labels, the example on the package says:

I would hope someone got a promotion for that, but in reality they probably got fired.

Beth wanted to hear some FoxPro jokes:
Q: How many VisualFoxPro programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: You're still thinking procedurally! A properly designed light bulb object would inherit a change method from a generic light bulb class!
"In FoxPro we had to code our own bugs. In VisualFoxPro we can inherit them."

"The worse thing about going to wine country is the yuppies. Constance and I were just trying to get out of the city and relax. This is hard to do when you are jockeying for a parking space with some son of a bitch who can't wear socks with his sissy-loafers. Monolo finally got around to pitching me his idea for a fitness show. It turns out it is actually a reality show and has nothing to do with fitness. The basic idea is to humiliate people and have cash prizes. He says the show should be called 'Punch My Mustache.' I wasn't really paying attention, he said it was translated. Who knows? I have heard stranger ideas."
Recently Discovered: G-Dub's notes from the debates.
I like "Super Base #1"
"I hear there's...rumors, on the innernets."
G-Dub strikes again.
Bill O'Reilly is a filthy, filthy prick.
OCTOBER 13--Hours after Bill O'Reilly accused her of a multimillion dollar shakedown attempt, a female Fox News producer fired back at the TV star, filing a lawsuit claiming that he subjected her to repeated instances of sexual harassment and spoke often, and explicitly, to her about phone sex, vibrators, threesomes, masturbation, the loss of his virginity, and sexual fantasies. Below you'll find a copy of Andrea Mackris's complaint, an incredible page-turner that quotes O'Reilly on all sorts of lewd matters. Based on the extensive quotations cited in the complaint, it appears a safe bet that Mackris recorded some of O'Reilly's more steamy soliloquies. For example, we point you to his Caribbean shower fantasies. While we suggest reading the whole thing, TSG will point you to interesting sections on a Thailand sex show, Al Franken, and the climax of one August 2004 phone conversation. (22 pages)
Speaking of filthy, I can think of two reasons to watch the new Lindsay Lohan video.

Top Ten Reasons to Re-Appoint George Bush
10) Because you don't change horsemen mid-Apocalypse.
9) Because the deficit is not growing fast enough.
8) Because corporations are people too.
7) Because the other guy is distracted by healthcare, education, and the environment.
6) Because 1.7 million jobs lost is just a start.
5) Because never has one man done so much, for so few, at the expense of so many.
4) Because there's a lot more of our oil still trapped under their soil.
3) Because second-rate people don't deserve a first-rate education.
2) Because global warming means better tans.
1) Because Fox News told me to.

I thought it was attributed to Peter Sellers from his movie "The Party" but I guess not. 10/11/2004
The piece starts out with a "man on the scene" reporter stating that Gunga Din waits at his post and sees the enemy troops approaching. He knows that sounding his bugle "might mean certain death." 10/11/2004 "Undaunted, he raises the bugle to his lips" and sounds the alarm call, a rallying bugle cry. Soon a whole mess of shots ring out and the battlefield goes silent. Then, a belabored bugle sounds again, followed by another volley of shots. Just when the listener thinks that poor Gunga Din is dead, the bugle calls again, although fainter and definitely not doing so well: warbling and flopping like a dying fish. As can be predicted, this goes on for a little while until the bugle blurts out one last peep and falls silent. The voiceover finally says: "By the living God that made you/ You’re a better man than I am Gunga Din" 10/11/2004

Explanitory letter to the guy who stole my digital camera:
"First of all, I'd like to congratulate you on the acquisition of a Casio Exilim S20 compact digital camera. No doubt it was an exciting find.
As you may have noticed, the Casio Exilim is a 2.0 Megapixel beauty with a 4X digital zoom. At under a half-inch thick, it's the perfect camera to put in your pocket and lose while dining out.
No doubt, you're wondering why the memory card contains 17 close-ups of a cat's ass."

HOW TO STOP PEOPLE FROM BUGGING YOU ABOUT GETTING MARRIED
Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs and cackling, telling me, "You're next."
They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.

October 5 Luna Update
We’ve received a lot of kind emails, people asking why the will be going into retirement next year. Of course with a decision like this, the reasons are multifold. Here are ten explanations I have been giving to journalists:
1. Rock and Roll is killing my life.
2. The Universe is Expanding.
3. There are too many bands out there, travelling around, singing their songs etc.
4. Too much time spent in 15-passenger vans. According to 20/20, these things flip over.
5. Too many hands to shake, that means germs.
6. Too many dinners at Wendy's.
7. People are dying in Iraq.
8. This is what bands do (with a few exceptions, like R.E.M. and Metallica, and the Rolling Stones).
Those bands, however, are multibillion dollar corporations.
You don’t break that up unless the government forces you to.
9. Hotel Electravision.
10. Time to Quit.

Dylan, Young, Geffen, Springsteen, and the Head-on Collision of Rock and Commerce. A little dry, but there are some good stories in there. If you're not already familiar with some of the players (Irving Azoff, Jon Landau, John Kalodner, Albert Grossman, John Sinclair) you might feel lost. Not recommended, Gerard.
