We now return you to our regularly scheduled facism.
With support like that, who needs enemas?
“Support Our Troops… Test Drive A 2006 Nissan Xterra!”
Something tells me the irony was lost on those responsible, though I'd like to think that I’m not the only driver who noticed the juxtaposition.
Not that I'm skeptical or anything.
"Beyonce's Triple Threat: New Album, Film, Fashion Line Before Year's End"
Am I the only person who’s so very very tired of pop musicians trying so hard to cross over into other lines of work? In particular film and fashion. Is the problem that it’s not time-consuming enough to be a pop star? Beyonce also needs to be an actress. And a fashion diva. Jessica Simpson shills cosmetics. And needs to be an actress. Ditto Brittney, ditto J. Lo, ditto P. Diddy (or insert more recent iteration of his name here), ditto just about everyone else.
I suppose if you’re not writing your material or producing your own music, that leaves some time to kill. And I acknowledge that for the most part these people are entertainers more so than musicians, so perhaps my expectations of them should be different. And above all, I acknowledge that for these people it's all about the money - how best to "leverage their brand". But still, it’s just gotten so damn predictable: Headed up the pop charts? Great – here’s a movie script and an endorsement for a line of clothing. Got a recognizable name? Here's a designer fragrance and a reality TV show. Been on the charts lately? Here's a ghost writer and a book deal. Sign here, here and here, initial here. Congratulations, you’re now a multiheaded commerce institution.
By sheer random luck, I ran into Jim from Opiate for the Masses, and later met Seven as well (Jim's the guitarist & keyboardist, Seven's the drummer). Opiate are originally from Phoenix, which would be a bit of a small world story by itself. But as it turns out, the place I just moved in to in LA is the same place where Jim lived for a number of years prior. Now -that- is a small world story. What are the odds, in a city the size of LA, of randomly meeting the person who just moved out of the place you just moved into? Bizarre....
I give you:
Ride-pimpers and Boy Racers, take note: this thing doesn't use any parts that you buy at Pep Boys. You have all collectively been owned. Have a nice day.
"Here's how it works. The president makes decisions; he's the decider. The Press Secretary announces those decisions, and you people of the press type those decisions down. Make, announce, type. Put them through a spell check and go home. Get to know your family again. Make love to your wife. Write that novel you got kicking around in your head. You know, the one about the intrepid Washington reporter with the courage to stand up to the administration... You know, fiction."
Kudos to a man with SUV-sized huevos, for standing 10 feet from the Monkey Fuhrer and giving him the verbal lashing he has so richly deserved for YEARS. Not to mention the so-called "liberal media" who mostly can't seem to stomach the thought of calling the Administration out onto the carpet for its myriad lies, boundless arrogance and unending hypocrisy.
So, which story is the Fox News website leading with?
Naturally, the one about the disgraced (and often disgraceful) representative from Georgia who got into a scuffle with Capitol Hill police. And naturally, they refer to her party association (Democratic) in the opening headline of the story.
So, let me get this straight: GEORGIA DEMOCRAT SORRY ABOUT SCUFFLE WITH POLICE!!!! ... pssst... hey, buddy... president authorized leaks of classified information to bolster his weak justification for iraq war.. shhh..... NOW BACK TO OUR TOP STORY - GEORGIA DEMOCRAT WHO IS FROM THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY APOLOGIZES FOR HITTING A POLICEMAN!!!!
I swear, this stuff is priceless.
