Today's news, in sonnet.

Prez Obama freezing wages?
For the budget, that's no spanner.
Next time just tell Boehner's pages
not to spend so much on tanner.

Leslie had us all in stitches
from ages eight to eighty-five.
RIP, and the world bitches
"Damn it, Dane Cook's still alive."

Gift for Christie from the feds,
a multi-million dollar bill.
Guv's not worried, 'cause he spends
more for lunch at Slop N' Swill.

Sorry bro, I meant a tribute.
This post takes it up the dirt chute.

Google ads are bullshit...usually.

But for some reason I get a Papa John's ad on the top now plugging something called "Zesty Jalapeno & Meats". Three words I unconditionally love. With an ampersand.

So I'm going to bed now because if I stick around the computer anymore I might be sorely tempted to do something that would result in the hottentrots...

8 Bits O' Nevsky - I'm Not Made Of Fucking Stone Edition

Amazon's doing a sick deal today so I picked up Arkham Asylum for $15. Fifteen fucking dollars.

I also picked up a DS game for the UVA Children's Hospital wish list via the Child's Play charity because when you tie in ridiculous videogame sales with altruism, EVERYONE WINS!

So go pick up something for yourself, or the kids, and even better, click through the Amazon links on the right while you're doing it!

I'm on your side, Kanye...

And after reading your tweet, I know someone who would sympathize...

Can the Tea Party not make me want to blow my head off this morning?

So the Virginia TP is lobbying hard for Don't Tread on Me license plates.

This will allow Commonwealth residents to indicate their disapproval of overtaxation by...paying a higher fee to the Commonwealth.

This will also allow me to get a headstart on my holiday drinking.

8 Bits O' Nevsky - 8 Bit Trip edition

Because with last week's elections is there a better time to retreat into a fantasy world?

Wii owners need to rejoice and buy all the games of the Bit.Trip series yesterday. Never mind justifying Wiiware (though it does do that), the five games of this series is part of a very small handful of downloadable games that you can throw back in the faces of those HD-owning bullies (along with Cave Story, World of Goo, and the Lost Winds games).

Bit.Trip Fate is the fifth, and in my humble opinion, the best of the series. All of the games have great music and aesthetics but some (Void) play better than others (Runner). While playing along to the music is the point, my faves, this one and Void, do allow the player a slight bit of flexibility. Of course, all of them are also as hard as fucking fuck and would drive most gamers to controller-throwing fits. Not me, though, I just give up.

Got through the first two worlds in this one, though. Hope does spring eternal. Anyway, the five games will set you back $34 total so far, which is a bargain. Here are some videos...

Of course, I can't help it...

Furiously refreshing the Virginia Election returns website like an idiot...

Frankly, I'm surprised it's this close, with C-Ville only a third counted and Albemarle still to go (as of this posting). Still, from everything I can see and hear, I have a sinking feeling it's going to be one of those Pyrrhic victories, my least favorite kind of victory...
Sick as a dog, but going out to vote...

Can't not vote for Perriello, after all.

I'm still hoping against hope that he'll be able to pull it out, that the Obama visit energized the base, that the debates illustrated what a superior candidate Perriello has been, that the residents of our district might not be so quick to dismiss a congressman whose constituent service has been a vast improvement over Virgil Goode despite not being affiliated with the dominant party here.

But whatever the result, Tom has done it his way, and a victory here would offer a blueprint to Democrats in Republican districts (rule 1: stop being such a fucking pussy).

And win or lose, Robert Hurt is finishing up his campaign his way too, by being a whiny jerk.

UPDATE: Oh, and Hurt's supporters stayed classy to the end, too.
