Work It, Girl. And Boy, for That Matter

If I had been smarter, I would have found a way to be an EU Parliamentarian instead of working for a living. They really know how to get paid for doing nothing at all. Meanwhile, I'm in the office sweating from showing property outside in late June in Austin, with stabbing pain in my neck, upper back and face that won't go away no matter what I do. Silly me . . .

Amazing. Dirty naughty objectionable site, but an amazing play in a minor league baseball game. By the ball girl. Seriously, check it out.

Not that It Will Make a Difference

In the way people perceive Bush, that is. You can debunk the fantasy that the administration lied about Iraq to lead us to war all you want (I've been doing so since before the war started), but people will still believe what they want to believe.

Why Am I Not Surprised

What? Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann are drooling over the late (and great, if you ask me) Tim Russert's Meet the Press gig? I'm shocked.

Happy Fun Movie

Boner alert indeed. I watched Ong Bak and loved it, love Tony Jaa's fighting style and while I couldn't tell you a thing about the plot or even if there was any dialogue at all, it was an amazing film if only for this scene. Now that's what I call a long tracking shot - seven minutes of solid bad guy beatings.

Good Stuff

This is inordinately dirty/profane/gross/icky and otherwise objectionable. I absolutely love it.

I tried to warn you, and you still looked. Don't blame me for your prurient interest. But wasn't it fantastic?

Oh for Christ's Sake

Can we believe in any sport any more? Steroids/HGH/whatever in everything, boxing's been a fixed, faked pile of BS for more than a decade, the Olympics are a bad and boring joke, horse racing is just creepy (the damn horses' legs aren't even fully formed until they're 4 years old, which is the moral equivalent of infants having head-butting contests), the Patriots cheated their way to a number of Super Bowls, and now this?

NBA basketball has bored me since the 1990s, and even then Jordan got away with all kinds of illegal crap and never got called on it. But refs deciding games is beyond the pale. The only thing I buy any more is MMA/UFC fighting. The bouts are rarely decided by the judges, and I've yet to see a sketchy decision. Maybe that's why gladiators were so popular in Rome: it's hard to throw a fight when it means you die.

Mahmoud, You Sexy Bitch

I actually like this song, not to mention finding it funny. Thank God for Samberg and his friends, they're often the only funny thing about SNL these days. Sorry about the ad at the beginning, it's short but I can't find another source for it but the NBC site.
