If you’re happy and you know it…

The Chicago Tribune posted an article on their website about the ’10 happiest states’ based on a Gallup poll. The Tribune article lacks any nuance, and reflects the lazy journalist’s unquestioning faith in surveys and statistics. Maybe it should be excused because it’s in the travel section, but still… After reading the original Gallup article […]

New Strategy For Restroom Odor Abatement?

New Strategy For Restroom Odor Abatement?, a photo by chaircrusher on Flickr. At some point they took away the robot air-freshener spritzers in the bathrooms on our floor. Some joker took matters into their own hands. This particular bathroom is perennially grotty looking and smelly. Aside from the flourescent fixture, I doubt anything’s changed in […]

Album Covers From The Crowded Closets

Can I just say this record cover raises more questions than it answers. Jesus & matching Polyester Suits. And don’t make this mistake — they’re the Proclamations, not the Proclaimers! The Shorbs! They sound gospel, they look like child molesters!

Double Plus Butter, Double Plus Un-Butter

A new product at my Supermarket is called “Move Over Butter.” I thought this was so hilarious I bought some. OK on toast but not as good a butter replacement for cooking as Smart Balance. In researching a post about this topic, I found that there’s actually a definitive post on SeriousEats about stuff people […]

Chuck Grassley Gets His Guns From God

Elena Kagan’s expression in reaction to Chuck Grassley’s Crazy Old Man act is priceless. For the record I first saw Chuck Grassley speak in public 40 years ago and my instinctive reaction is “that man is brain damaged.” Nothing he’s done in the intervening years has changed my mind. Lately though, he’s gone from conservative […]

The Ad Every Model Wants In Their Portfolio

When I get e-mail from legitimate sources, GMail doesn’t display any images by default. You can choose to always display images from that sender, or see images just in the current e-mail. For some reason, e-mail from spammers shows the images unconditionally. Nice trick, that! Anyhow, this guy is the bomb!

Je suis l’ennemi de l’État

This is a Moveon.org prank video thing, where they stick your name and photo (from facebook) in a fake news story about Glen Beck. It’s been done before — but when my utterly ridiculous Facebook profile photo showed up in the video it cracked me up. My profile photo, note the phantom lights and Newcastle […]

The Ballad of Winter Delacroix James

If you are wondering why my chat nickname is “dr. hitlerballs” google it (tom/t-woww): why do people name their children summer and autumn but not also winter and spring (tom/t-woww): i ask (luna/orgasmic): valid question (kent/dr.hitlerballs): calling a girl winter would be kinda cool (kent/dr.hitlerballs): if she was a 6 ft tall model with lethal […]

“One Day Like Rain” — Worst SF Movie Ever?

I was trolling through the ‘watch instantly’ selections on Netflix the other night, and started watching “One Day Like Rain” (official site), and made it past half way before giving up.  This isn’t Plan 9 From Outer Space bad, it’s in its own category of bad.  It has characters, sort of.  Well it has actors […]

Fan Death recapitulates the history of the Music Video

The song itself I’m not quite sure about, though it is a stylish mash up of its 80s influences. But the video really does it for me, taking me back to when music videos were fun, by assembling a genre-bending cast of impersonators to dance with the Dorothy Gale of Kansas heroine. Prince and Bill […]

Some people just don’t know their PR0N memes

This is just the weirdest usage and a stunningly unfortunate double-entendre. And stunningly it’s at least the second time I’ve seen it used in a way that looks to be innocent of its pornographic connotations:

Ueberschall “Art Of Sounds” — Ad Copy Crap Artist Deluxe

I don’t know if this sound set, called “Art Of Sounds” is any good — I have too many ways to make sounds to feel like I need to buy someone else’s loops. But the copy that went with this sample set release is amazing in the way it manages to mean absolutely nothing: ‘All […]

Burial Burying Lady Gaga

I did this accidentally, you can try it on purpose First, start this track (the new Burial, called “Foster Care”) Burial – Fostercare by pashoncoop Then start this video and turn the sound off: It’s not Dark Side Of The Moon VS The Wizard Of Oz, but it’s cool, at least until she sits down […]
