I'm struggling to understand whether I like this or not. Mostly I just like the caption.

I fucking hate Internet Explorer 8. Hate it. It will not let me copy photo URLs and therefore it is not pleasant trying to get a picture on this damn post. Fuck 'em! Here's the stupid link. Don't be lazy, just look at it. It's one of the best yet. Awkward Family Photos

This should be funnier

But I feel like it has potential... Item Not As Described

Listen up!

I am a pacifist at heart, even though I have a love of boxing, road rage, and other violent things. I harbor disgust, horror and general diappointment at the ridiculous number of wars and other moments of machismo currently plaguing the world. That said, someone needs to kick these chicks' over-exposed asses. Thank you.
The latest war?
What does this mean for the world?
What can you do about it?
Copy, cut, and distrubute these in order to fight the propoganda. Remember the Madonna!

John Moe's Pop Song Correspondences

Oh god. Not sure if I posted these yet, but they are certainly worth a read. Attention Mr. Axl Rose: We did not feel welcome in the jungle. A letter to Elton John from the office of the NASA Administrator Marvin Gaye explains what he heard through the grapevine And more!

This is really fun. His creations are a witty combination of bent wire and household objects. Behold, the artist's dog Frank being housebroken: Also this: And many, many more... http://bentobjects.blogspot.com/

Just so you know

Hi folks, It is nearly my last day of work so I will be clearing out all the bizarro bookmarks I have collected over my time here. This may be a day filled with lists of sites, or it may just mean I spend time posting things. You know as much as I do. In the meantime, enjoy this: http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/news/2009/06/sex_scandal_flow_chart.php

Music reviews from old people. Let's look at Flo Rida and Gemini Wolf. http://woodshopfilms.com/index.php/breakfast-at-sulimays

New gem

Thank you Matt for introducing me to this site. It's from tumblr. I really really do not understand tumblr and twitter and other things that start with t... Taken verbatim from the site:



Yesterday while seeing some of the Siren Festival at Coney Island, we detoured to Beer Island for some drinks. At the table right next to us, this couple was having the most intense fight for the entire hour and a half we were there. Meanwhile, this kind of crazy older lady comes in and starts busting all these dance moves (sometimes scandalously involving younger male patrons). Jeff caught this amazing little clip of both things happening. Just to be clear on the context, this is not a little isolated moment… these two things were both happening next to each other for a LONG TIME. Beer Island = awesome.

There’s not a lot to add to this. Please watch. Amazing.

Thank you, internet, for letting us all share in this amazing surreal adventure

What would we do without her?

Sarah Palin, you are a lovely, lovely lady. Your huntin' and fishin' skills rival no other political character's. Your folksy speech makes me want to hug you and place you in a rocking chair and rock you into outer space. Your love of nature begs me to drop you on an iceberg and see how you adapt. Thanks for everything! P.S. Sarah, Russia is calling, and it is asking you to get curtains so it does not have to see you and your frisky husband making more stupid named babies. P.P.S. Also, hire a better speech writer. Thanks! http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2009/07/palin-speech-edit-200907?currentPage=1 That link is mostly just a visual masterpiece. As is this:

America's Poets

Remember when Bill Maher came to Smith and got yelled off the stage. That was funny. Here he is funny. So are dirty senatorial emails... I mean, gentlemen, wouldn't this have just been easier? Color Me Badd - I wanna sex you up

Ladies, ladies, ladies

Hello. Look, a lot of awesome funny people who are women sitting at a table, laughing. Look at that! Bonus: Did anyone catch Mary-Louise Parker's nasty little quip about "fucking with the lights off"?

Feeling groovy

This was neat. Stop action. Weirdly touching, although I am confused about where the family went...

Bloomberg be damned.

I mean, I knew the cigarette tax in NY was high, but this is outrageous. Lesley, perhaps you should move to New Hampshire. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090715/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_quadrillion_dollar_debit P.S. Oh, and Lesley, where the fuck were the fireworks this year?!

Sad Story

One time a few of us decided to apply to be judges for the National Pie Contest. http://www.piecouncil.org/downloads/2009judgingapplication.pdf We were going to make up our own pie club so we would be qualified to apply. We did not start a pie club. We did not fill out the form. We did not get to judge. Sad story. The end.

A priest and a rabbi walk into a bar...

My dad called me from the car and with serious urgency asked me to please investigate the existence of the following website: Old Jews Telling Jokes dot com. It is real. And they have a podcast.

Please note the fuzzy slippers.

Apparently a secretary at the firm just got a new tattoo of Michael Jackson dancing away on her upper arm. That's sorta-kinda awesome in an "I certainly wouldn't get it" kind of way. This, however, is not.

Celine Dion = Michael Jackson = Bad = Awesome

Detroit's abandoned houses

It seems that I've read a lot about Detroit's problems lately. Fewer than 25% of Detroit's high school freshman will receive a diploma. The asthma rates rival those of the Bronx. And as the auto factories close up shop the unemployment rates are sky-rocketing and the abandoned, charred, and foreclosed homes are exacerbating what the NYT called "the death of a city."* That article last weekend was interesting and touching and really drove home (no pun intended) the culture of the auto plants and the how the African American residents of Detroit came to rely so heavily on the success of these plants. I sound like I'm back at Smith... Anyway, yesterday the NYT online published a brief blurb about this artist who has documented the abandoned houses within Detroit. The photos on his website are beautiful and simple and heartbreaking. There are no people involved, and often only the basic structure of the house remains. Definitely worth looking at. *Also, it spawned Eminem.

She "would have tried the patience of a saint..."

This is horrible. An article in The Guardian discussing the different reactions the law, and those charged with the honor of carrying it out, have for people who murder their abusive spouses-- the difference between the treatment of men (the judge expresses sympathy for the man and admits that the victim "would have tried the patience of a saint") versus the treatment of women (asking her why she didn't just "walk out or go upstairs"). Disgusting. Interesting reading. http://jezebel.com/5302917/guardian-writer-no-justice-for-women-who-retaliate-against-their-abusers http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2009/jun/26/women-kill-violent-partners-law
