Hot Talk

Making an ass of myself over at NW Wingnut again. Join me, won't you?

0-4, damn

Consider four attributes of the ideal man: self-control, bravery, confidence and sex appeal.

TGIF - free agent edition

This one goes out to our favorite quarterback.

TGIF - welcome back edition

I'm sure we can all get down with NWA's strong stance against the use of mind-weakening narcotics.

the War is over....Time for Celebration?

The war, first declared by Nixon in '71, is over!

I new BHO would end a war, just wasn't expecting this one:
White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, Gil Kerlikowske said Wednesday: "Regardless of how you try to explain to people it's a 'war on drugs' or a 'war on a product,' people see a war as a war on them," he said. "We're not at war with people in this country."

Good to hear.....

Now if we actually stop locking up 100,000's of otherwise law abiding Americans, that would be a real victory!

Super-Weird Chris Matthews Content

13 minutes of power. Just disregard this, pretend I never posted it, etc.

I've had a good night's sleep, but this clip is still on my mind.

Is it simply the subject matter - the characters involved herein - or something else, about Matthews' 'performance?' Is he starting to remind me of some ensemble character in an Altman-ish rendition of my wonky-(we)blog-life? I fucking hope not, Jesus. When did Matthews gain the ability to turn into an ultra-avunvular, asshole-ish Jack Lemmon at will?

Disregard this.

One More Saturday Night

Warren was sharp, there was very little aimless noodling, and the sound was excellent. I would recommend catching any and all possible future shows (with this lineup)

I am finishing up my finals week, and intend to begin posting more frequently (as in more than not at all) but first, piles of tests to grade....

I love reading Lex and SoliCit, but I wish that Wobs, Dave3544, and Ash would come out of retirement or "whatever", return to the OG, and we could have even more extended dialogue and good-natured back-and-forth over the ongoing apocalyptic deterioration of the "free" market system, the debate over holding torturers accountable, and of course the sad saga surrounding EFCA. Helloooo????? Are you out there?????? Would it kill you to post once in a freakin blue moon? (like me....)I know you comment here and there, but that isn't the same thing......just sayin. organize some serious grievances.... work it is the answer... (I might be slightly influenced by my experiences from last night, but still....)
