Urinal Etiquette

Male Restroom Etiquette -
A Sims-ish short film that takes the basics ... don't use a urinal adjacent to a urinal in use, don't talk, etc... and takes it to a a whole new level.

What I Like Most About This Review ...

... of Yo La Tengo's "I Am Not Afraid of You And I Will Beat Your Ass" isn't that it praises the album, which is praiseworthy if not one that I think would make new listeners love the band, rather it's how huge the picture of the reviewer is in the article.

I imagine this will be fixed, so if you follow the link and it's a normal sized picture, well ... I don't know what to tell you.

Don't Take it Lying Down

Think Progress » VIDEO: Clinton Sets The Record Straight On Terrorism, Smacks Down Fox News
It really is time the Democrats stopped playing lapdogs and fought back. Trying to be civil obviously gets you nowhere with the right wing attack dogs. The Republicans, for all their bluster, are making the world less safe and that needs to be pointed out until it sinks in.

Is It Just Me or Does This Boyle Character Sound a Bit Like Bill Frist?

We're paticularly fond of the work of Robert Boyle, whose ethics board-baiting 17th century research includes "Observables upon a monstrous head" and "Whether a fierce dog stocked with the blood of a cowardly dog may not become more tame?"

Ortiz just cracked number 50, tying Jimmie Foxx for the Red Sox single season HR record.

A Message to You, Ska Fan

If you're jonesing for some fresh ska-dub-rockin' then you could do far worse than picking up a copy of The Stolen Records "Basement Songs" at If CDFreedom sells out, try I don't know if you'll find it anywhere else, it's one of those little indie things not on iTunes ... nor even at Newbury Comics.

... Or Are You Just Happy to See Me?

This was not me. Excerpt:

Mulloy made it through customs, but his friend Robert Cusack was stopped by customs agents after an exotic bird flew out of his suitcase. He then admitted he had two pygmy monkeys in his pants ...

"Mulloy got through the screening process," Thom Mrozek of the U.S. Attorney's Office said. "Perhaps because of the excitement at the discovery of the monkeys."
It just sounds like a scene from a Marx Brothers movie. Shake Harpo's hand and see what else comes out of his pants.

Mess With the Bull

Well, the much anticipated (on my part) debut of the remodelled Trek got the horns. Fox's coverage of Bull Riding, I kid you not, ran long. They joined Trek in progress about 35 minutes or so in. What I saw looked OK, the changes weren't jarring, the stars, starships, and phaser fire just looked better. I didn't see any enhancements to the viewscreens around the bridge, or anything added to crumbling of the Romulan bridge scene. Maybe I'll catch it from the beginning next week. Of course, if they keep the same timeslot, it'll be right after football, so it's likely to be joined in progress again. Raw deal.

I really need Bledsoe to have a better week than last or my fantasy team is in trouble. Not too metion another bad week could mean Romo starts seeing time.
(Update: Bledsoe did just fine, but nobody else on my team came through. Bunch of sad sacks.)

The Pluckiest Companion

Sarah Jane Smith to get her own Who spin-off. Too much of a good thing, what with Torchwood and the K-9 shows also coming soon? Nah. I guess it's to Sladen's benefit the Rose spin-off didn't come together.

The Impolite Phrase is "Impeachable Offense"

Olbermann skewers W's shameful use of the 5th anniversary of 9/11 to continue spinning his indefensible war.

Worth keeping in mind: the 9/11 attacks happened on W's watch, not Clinton's; five years later Osama is still free; Ground Zero is still a hole in the ground; terrorism is not the biggest problem we face -- I'd feel much more secure if my tax dollars were being funneled into cancer research, fighting poverty, and improving our public schools than wasted on invasions and occupations; and yet W wants to stay the course, continue centralizing power, continue enlarging the federal government, continue shredding the Constitution, and maybe destroy Social Security if he can find the time.

This morning, Olbermann joined Dennis & Callahan's Axis of Terrorist Appeasing Evil. I want my apolitical sports radio back!!

There Goes Any Interest I Had ...

... in seeing The Black Dahlia or Hollywoodland. Some very lackluster reviews for what I was optimistically hoping would be a nice little neo-noir double dip.
