Some day I will once again provide content. Today is not that day.

For those of you who don't know why this is so wonderful, behold the trailer.

The Rack and I would look awesome in that.

Look, the Real World is pretty awful at the moment, what with people taking Obama to be their Lord and Savior and the whole Lockerbie thing and the healthcare thing and blah blah blah and all of us being racist Nazi evilmonging Neanderthal assassins. Sometimes, it's a bit much. Thus, it is time for some pretty.
Sheesh, yes, bipartisan. All y'all are so damn fussy.

Seriously, read it, and pass it along.

Warning! Some mildly naughty language:
BTW, that really isn't me.
I love this: "Let's not even go near the idea of light beams being slow enough to dodge; that's just something you have let go of, or risk insanity."

You look at your better half, who has reached the end of the row he or she has been weeding. They're bending over, working their hands in the dirt. You've just pulled out the first carrot of the season, and you brush off the dirt, and take a sweet bite. It's the best thing you've ever tasted. You pass a water bottle back and forth with your lover. It begins to rain. You rush inside, and I bet you can guess what happens next.
Gardening - besides my proposed sexual connotations - is satisfying. And while weekend-long weeding can suck at the height of summer, all in all gardening is a valuable alternative to the grocery store, and allies humans with the sensualities of the land. There have been tomes written on gardening; both the various techniques for various seasons, and the philosophy behind what it means to work the land. There is no doubt in my mind - and if you're into gardening or enjoy visiting gardens, I think you'll agree - that gardening, albeit hard work, is an intimate way to connect with the earth, and a delightful way to spend the day. My question is - aside from all of the obvious benefits to man and land - does gardening make sex better?
The skeptical reader will probably go, say what? Okay, I feel you. It may seem like a gross neo-hippie generalization. But I believe gardening is a good model to go off of - in terms of getting off.
Heh. I need to garden more often.
I lived in Cleveland for several years so I truly appreciated this. The tag line is v v awesome indeed.

was to wonder how long they'll be alive. And, no, I'm not kidding. Considering Putin's habit of offing all vocal opposition, it's a fair question.
Also? Fuck you de la Rocha, et al. That's how it's done. Losers.

I don't care at the moment, because he just proved he is one ass-kicking mayor.
Police said the woman was a grandmother who was trying to protect her 1-year-old granddaughter from a 20-year-old man, an assault authorities characterized as a domestic dispute."The mayor stopped and said something (to the man) like, 'Let's all cool down here, I'm going to call 911,'" the mayor's spokesman Patrick Curley said. "He said it one or two times according to him. When he took out his phone, that's when the suspect attacked him."The suspect hit Barrett in the head and torso with a metal pipe. Barrett apparently fought back, fracturing his hand when he punched the suspect."I think he hit the guy," Curley said. "I don't know where, but it was hard enough, whatever he hit, to fracture his hand."The suspect then fled the area when he heard sirens. He was arrested on Sunday at a Milwaukee home, and police recovered the alleged weapon. The woman and baby were uninjured.The mayor, who did not ask for security to accompany him to the fair because he wasn't on official duty, underwent successful surgery Sunday on his fractured right hand and also had cuts on his head and lip stitched up, Curley said. The mayor likely will remain in the hospital through Monday, he said.The mayor's brother, John Barrett, said the family was optimistic about the mayor's recovery."We're extremely proud of Tom's selflessness and his courage," John Barrett said, fighting back tears at a news conference.Gov. Jim Doyle said he also visited Barrett at the hospital Sunday morning and found him in "good spirits and looking good considering what happened.""The mayor's heroic actions clearly saved a woman and others from harm," Doyle said in a statement.
Dude, that's hardcore.

Lorenzo Lamas AND Debbie Gibson, people. There's your seal of quality right there.
"If every single citizen were allowed to hold a gun, there would be less carjackings and robberies," he said.
Augusto's gun was properly registered with police, and he does not face any charges, authorities said.
The Coast Guard vet, who was born in Yonkers and lives with his wife of 48 years in Irvington, Westchester County, said he had been selling commercial kitchen equipment for nearly 50 years and had no intention of quitting.
"What's the worst they could do? Shoot me? I guess so. I'm not going to lay down and die. I'm just not going to," he said.
J.B. said his boss likes to do things "the old-fashioned way."
"Of course, he's going to keep open," he said.
Augusto and his employees tried to get back to business as usual yesterday, although it wasn't easy. When a woman came to place a candle outside the shop, J.B. angrily kicked it across the pavement.
"Who's this for?" he demanded of the startled woman. "For the guy who died? F- - - him!"

Now, I'd heard of Jerry Lewis being a fast draw (go figure), but not Sammy Davis. That's friggin' awesome.

I present the red band 5 minute trailer for Legion.
Let us count the Awesome. This has:
Gabriel v. Michael showdown.
Granny crawling on the ceiling.
A rocket launcher and last but not least
I'm soooooooooooooooo there.
Janet Schulte believed the man when he told her by phone that his 40-something, disabled brother needed a caregiver who could bottle-feed him and change his diapers.
What the Melbourne woman can't believe is that he committed no crime, now that she said she has found out the situation was a charade: that the man and his brother were same person.
And that he didn't have the disabilities he claimed to have.
"I feel violated," Schulte said, sharing her story because she said the man has deceived other women and will try again. "I feel disgusted."
Investigators and prosecutors have refused to pursue charges, saying Schulte was paid and agreed to provide the care.
FLORIDA TODAY is not identifying him because he is not being charged.
"I consented to change his diapers, but I legitimately thought this man needed help," she said. "How can that not be a crime for him to come into my house and expose himself?"
I know I should be outraged but I just keep laughing instead. On the one hand this guy should get kicked in the balls a bunch for being an asshole but on the other hand, he paid some stranger to change his shitty diapers and that is funny, I don't care who you are.
