Junk Mail

junk_yard_dog___sylvester_ritter_02.jpgjames_dobson200.jpgI recieved a flyer yesterday from the big “JD” himself.  No, not Junkyard Dog.  I’m talking about Tha Doctor himself, Mr. James Dobson!  He was urging voters to call Sen. Debbie Stabenow to try to persuade her to change her views on protecting our values and the sanctity of life.   I’m pretty sure that was the goal of his mailer and I hope wasn’t just some cheap ploy to fire up his religious right base to get out and vote.  In his own words, “To not go and vote would be a sin”.  (I’m still checking with my people to find out which book of the Bible that verse comes from).  Maybe he should sit down with some of his political pals and talk about protecting the sanctity of human life.

Good Evening, Bacon…

With the recent trend of the Bush White House blaming every problem on the Clinton Administration (the economy, 9/11, Osama, the nukes in North Korea), I came up with this list:

More things you can blame on the Clinton Administration –
1.  The Yankees loss to the Tigers.

2.  WOW potato chips.

3.  Fonzie jumping over the shark.

4.   The breakup of The Beatles.

5.  Police Acadamies 2-7.

6.  Weekend at Bernie’s 2, Mannequin 2, Breakin’ 2 (Electric Boogaloo).

7.  Clear Pepsi.

8.  Tom Cruise.

9.  Snakes on a #$&@ing plane!

10.  The Bush Administration.

If I left any out, feel free to submit your own.

Where it’s at

BeckBeck’s trying something different with his new album “The Information”, which came out Tuesday. From the Amazon.com review: “The artwork for The Information is either non-existent or infinite, depending on one’s point of view. Each copy will come in a blank package with one of four collectible sticker sheets specially designed by European and American artists and representative of the unique Beck aesthetic. The stickers will give every Beck fan the opportunity to participate in the creative process by designing his or her own one of a kind CD cover.” Check out Amazon’s page to look at some of the covers people have already made.

Vermonty Python Ben & Jerry’s has created the best ice cream flavor ever…Vermonty Python!  The ingredients:  Coffee liquer with chocolate cookie crumbs and fudge cows (get it?).  The description:  “We interrupt ourselves with much hooting through tin horns to bring you this brilliant new ice cream, made from dried shrubbery and old cereal packets. This is a ripping good flavor, really, so buy it quickly and run away, silly person, or we shall taunt you a second time.”

Twenty Dolla Bill Y’all

October 2, 2006

Went to see Family Force 5 at the Shelter in Detroit last night. To say they rocked would be an understatement. So where does a band get a ginourmous twenty dollar bill for their encore? From the fine folks at Crossroads of course (mad props go out to Mr. Maaad Mike)! By the way, the dude with the piano key hat is lead singer Soul Glow Activatur.
