We still great power! Our elements heavier!

Russia might not be so great for journalists who don't wish to be murdered right now, but they have some damn fine scientists, who've synthesized Element 118.

I wonder if they're still working on those anti-gravity shoes to make Putin seem taller...

Really, how far the fuck have we fallen?

Just went over to, and this was the headline (cut and pasted, not making this up):

U.N. smackdown on N. Korea

CNN, the *eyeroll* most trusted name in news? Who wrote this, a fucking twelve-year-old? Why not "U.N. gets all up in Kim Jong Il's grill"?
Another edition of Ceeeeeee-lebrity Ceeeeee-Corner...

* The big guy is back! I'm glad to hear it, I saw ol' Roger when he did his famous shot-by-shot workshop at the Virginia Film Festival (it was "The Birds" that year). Hope those thumb muscles are workin'...

* Thanks to C.Franz for pointing out Robyn Hitchcock has a new album out, with Peter Buck on guitar no less! It's 1991 all over again!

* I thought it was because he was a boozehound, but apparently Mel hates the Jews because of...South Park?

Yeah, I don't get it either.

Lucretiuuuuuuuuuus, you got some explaining to do...

Like, how come every time I click on your link to the right, your blog doesn't show up? What the fuck, man? What the fucking fuck? You can't just leave like that, at least leave your blog up like C. Franz so I can check it once in a while in the vain hope that someday you'll repair the hole in my heart...come baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

You can't leave! NOOOOOOOO!

"Appetite For Destruction"? Please. "Use Your Illusion"? Utter crap.

Axl had to get these juvenile recordings out of his way in preparation for his masterpiece. It's taken fourteen years, the firing of Slash and Daffy...Doof...whatever his name is, the quick rise and spectacular fall of Buckethead, but it's finally here.

Certain works always come up when great music is discussed, Beethoven's 9th, the Ring Cycle, Sgt. Pepper, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, but Chinese Democracy may, just may, mind you, be a hundred times better than all of those works put together.

Hope the first track's an instrumental...

On behalf of gambling degenerates everywhere, I say go to hell, Congress. I just cleaned out my PartyPoker account before cashing out became a crime.

Hope all you libertarians who vote Republican because you don't want the government interfering in your life and think this South Park ep is funny are watching...

Well, at least with the priorities of this Congress we know our children are safe.
