Just about every time I start cursing at you assholes on Open Salon who ignore the few posts I bother making these days, I realize that I don't read any of your posts. So maybe I should stop being such a fucking narcisstic hypocrite, eh?
Seriously, Open Salon is a… Read full post »
I feel strangely saddened and lonesome now that Andrew Breitbart has blocked me from following him on Twitter.
And I'm not even joking.
Ever since the videos of his unhinged, irate, quasi-lunatic verbal diarrhea aimed at Max Blumenthal and Mike Madden were posted on… Read full post »
Hitler's had a rough year.
First he found out about the housing bubble:
Then he had to be told about Michael Jackson's death:
He couldn't find Wally for the life of him:
And now he just found out about Ted Kennedy:
Regard for Ted Kennedy in death.
I'm sorry, I didn't know you cared.
I thought you thought Edward Kennedy was a punchline, a joke, a bad example, someone to be afraid to be associated with. I didn't realize you thought of him as "one of the greatest legislators… Read full post »
This is Not My Beautiful Economy, Part 4
Could we have a more dramatic picture of our current economic climate than the displays of outrage in two widely covered news clips yesterday? And how is it that our advanced media culture appears to be exacerbating misunderstandings and miscommunications?

The city of Missoula is one of Montana's key liberal hotbeds - its growing population is at least partly responsible for the slow purpling of the state in general recently. Considered by much of… Read full post »
2008 was a pretty good year for music. I think I probably heard more quality albums released last year and in 2006, but there were still some very solid and interesting albums put out this year.
Some of them, I am still digesting as I've only recently heard about them after… Read full post »
This is Not My Beautiful Economy, Part 3
I got exactly one-half of a napkin at every meal I had at my grandparent's house on my dad's side of the family when I would visit. Everyone at the table got that too - one half of one napkin, carefully… Read full post »
I interrupt this series barely in progress to bring up a topic I
hadn't planned on when I decided to embark on this sexy
That topic would be layoffs. Specifically, it would be MY layoff. That's right, in just 60 days or so, I will be joining the growing ranks… Read full post »
I don't understand the economy. The only very limited education
I received was in a political science class that goes back so far
as to pre-date the loss of my virginity. Which isn't saying much,
but still...I'm about the last thing from an expert as they
Still...I'm finding… Read full post »
I thought it might be interesting to compile a list of people who seem positioned to be given a full pardon from President Bush before he leaves office.
My list is below. I'm sure there are several others who will be on his list that I don't know… Read full post »
11:39 p.m. - McCain now has a 5,000+ vote lead with 64% reporting. Not sure what to think - there are some rural counties that haven't reported and some others that have only partially reported and are showing a 70-30 margin. But there hasn't yet been one vote tallied from Gallatin… Read full post »
Watching our current election draw to a close can really drag a concerned, opinionated, engaged person into the muck of despair. I'm pretty sure I don't want to hear about the "middle class" anymore (even though in reality I am a full-fledged member).
If I were to pay attention just… Read full post »

The New Pornographers - Challengers
Riding a wave of three successively improving power-pop albums, Canada's "super group," The New Pornographers had raised the bar of expectations to the point where anything short of an audio version of the Mona Lis… Read full post »

The National - Boxer
Crawling inside the songs of The National takes some persistance. Their often-moody and nuanced character portraits can be passed over on a half listen as somewhat monotoned and hookless, devoid of that pop sugar coating that it some… Read full post »
I have great affection for office-wide emails. In my seven years at the job I currently hold, I've kept a file of some of my favorites. You can learn a lot from a person by what they choose to disseminate office wide and I've been blessed with an eclectic crew of… Read full post »
So Hank...can I call you Hank? I think I can since you're asking me and my American colleagues for $700 billion to step in and save a pristine free market economy that you used to think didn't need the attention of the federal government. I believe I've earned that right… Read full post »

LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
Drenched in sweat and riding a danceable wave of euphoria, I got an idea of the significance of LCD Soundsystem at the end of their live set that I hadn't even planned on seeing.

Sep 13th, 2008 | WASILLA, Russia
The McCain campaign vigorously denounced a comment from an apparent Obama supporter who claimed that the senator exhibited bizarre behavior when he was in Hanoi as a Prisoner of War (POW) and frequently kept his personal items inside his rectum even AFTER prison… Read full post »
It's with a little fear that I write about author David Foster
Wallace because what I have to say runs the very real risk of
turning a tragic death into a grossly perveted self-exploitation
piece. But I can't rightly put this event to rest any other way at
