DIRTY ^%!@#@#$#@**&^*%&$!! BLOGGER
WHY THE VEEP'S SHOOTING INCIDENT IS INDEED FUNNY
There was quite a debate over at Sadico Junction over the jokes being made at Dick Cheney's expense. Sadie Lou has taken great offense to these jokes. As I explained in comments there, this is why it is funny, and why he is fair game:
What makes it funny is Cheney's history. During the election, Cheney went in front of an NRA convention and made fun of John Kerry for wearing a new hunting vest on a duck hunt in Ohio (hinting that Kerry wasn't really a hunter). Well Kerry went on a duck hunt in the real outdoors, and managed to shoot, well, ducks.
Cheney went on a hunt on a ranch that raises semi tame birds, and managed to shoot his partner rather than a bird. If humor has it's basis in irony, there is little more ironic than that! Therefore, little funnier. And Cheney"s hubris left him fair game (pardon the pun)!
DARWINIAN THEORY IN ACTION
Study shows how the Cane Toad is rapidly evolving in Australia. Very Fascinating!
GOD DAMNED CBS!!!!!
I AM SO FUCKING PISSED!
INCREDIBLE NEW MUSIC WEB SITE!
This may be the coolest site I have ever been to! It is called WOLFGANG'S VAULT. It features music from thousands of hours of live concert recordings from the vaults of legendary concert promoter Bill Graham. For those of you too young to remember, Graham is probably the most important promoter in the history of modern music. He operated the legendary Filmore and Winterland Auditoriums in San Francisco, and the Filmore East in New York. He promoted over 35,000 concerts, and launched the careers of myriad of stars, including Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Steppenwolf, The Band, Buffalo Springfield, and many, many more.
Vault Radio regularly adds and removes songs from it's playlist, so the music is always new and exciting. Right now, I am listening to Bruce Springsteen doing a live cover of Manfred Mann's BLINDED BY THE LIGHT. All the songs on vault Radio are live recordings, and they are FM quality.
If you are fan of live music, you HAVE to check out this site!
Bridge's T-shirt was my fav joke!
What's up with the networks nowdays? They haven't run a new episode of ANYTHING since before Christmas. Now they're calling this MIDseason? Since WHEN is 3 or 4 new episodes considered midseason? When I do find a show I like, they change timeslots and nights, so I can't find it anymore. OK, I'm done ranting on THIS topic. ;)
I gotta check out that music site, thanks!
Oh yeah, FIRSTIES on the new blog!
The Cheney jokes are well-deserved. On everything from Abramoff to bird hunting all I have to do is think what the R's would be saying if it were happening to Dems.
