ABC News: Ted Nugent to Fellow NRAers: Get Hardcore

ABC News: Ted Nugent to Fellow NRAers: Get Hardcore:

"'Remember the Alamo! Shoot 'em!' he screamed to applause. 'To show you how radical I am, I want carjackers dead. I want rapists dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. I want the bad guys dead. No court case. No parole. No early release. I want 'em dead. Get a gun and when they attack you, shoot 'em.'"

and I always thought Ted was a lover, not a fighter:

That Nadine, what a teenage queen
She lookin' so clean, especi'lly down in between; what I like

She come to town; she be foolin' around
a puttin' me down as a rock-and-roll clown
It's all right

Wang Dang Sweet Poontang

Wang dang, what a sweet poontang
a shakin' my thang as a rang-a-dang-dang in the bell

She's so sweet when she yanks on my meat
Down on the street you know she can't be beat
What the hell

Wang Dang Sweet Poontang | "An American heresy" | "An American heresy"

This speech by Al Gore that (Chet from Miscellaneous Heathen points us too) is so good it makes me wish he had run for President.
Oh wait.
He did.
It makes me wish he won.
Oh wait.
He did.
Remind me again why we haven't had a revolution?

"There was no better opportunity than the bankrtupcy bill for the Democrats to make a clear stand. This wasn't right versus left, conservative versus liberal. This was whore versus not whore. If Hoyer can't recognize the opportunity such a bill presents, then he's unfit to be Minority Whip."

As usual Atrios says it, if not best, well then, very well...

There is no excuse in having voted for the bankruptcy bill...
other than you're a whore for the credit industry...
that's pretty much it...


This is not a compliment.

arturo says in my comments:
Thanks for reminding me I need a copy of Yo! Bum rush the show on CD. You probably already know but though I would let you know that Cornell West is speaking @ UH tonite @ 6:30PM.

I had no idea...grrr...I'll be in rehearsal...
anybody going?

24 BLOGGING....An email from a reader reminds me that intellectual integrity demands that I do some followup 24 blogging. So here it is.

Those of you who care may recall that a couple of months ago I theorized that this season's casual and frequent use of torture was actually a trick: since the torture never actually worked, the writers were sending a subtle but definite anti-torture message.

of course none of my reader's have reminded me - but yeah - 24 finally had some torture pay off, and we're obviously supposed to think this forgives all the torture that they've been doing all season that didn't work...

The American Street � Blog Archive � Workers Memorial Day is April 28th

The American Street � Blog Archive � Workers Memorial Day is April 28th:

"Workers Memorial Day is April 28th"

remember the fallen.
the men and women who died to make other men (mostly) and women rich.


to both of you who check this blog regularly...
been busy...sick yesterday...not feeling like sharing my rants and ravings much...

go to and d/l some public enemy...
that should keep you busy...
been listening to Bring the Noise 2000 on my headphones today and it's even better than I remember it...

P.E. pulled a Wilco on this album back in 2000 - When Def Jam wouldn't release it they posted it on their website.
Lawyer had them pull it quick, but not quick enough and now it has a permanent home over at along with a bunch of other rare P.E. tracks...


other than that,
I got nothin...

oh yeah,
I really enjoyed the "Mirror Universe" episode of "Enterprise" and kind of wish they'd do a whole mirror universe series...
any of you bigger trek people than me? anybody know if there are any trek novels set in the mirror universe?

Interesting Discussion Theatre in Houston, Texas - Forum

I lurk and read a lot over at Theatreport,
and some people with way more knowledge and skills
are having a really good discussion on affective memory, etc...
go check it out...
then go read, "Brecht, boring but essential" and poke around a few more of the threads...
some interesting things being said over there these days.

Ratchet up the seduction! whooho!

Emphasis Added:

"I am beginning to think that the antidote for the conservative “medieval values” message is to turn up to volume on the corrupting seductions of modernity. Every time you have sex and don’t have to worry about becoming a parent, thank a liberal. Every time you earn a paycheck and don’t have to give 10% of your after-tax take to The Established Church, thank a liberal. Every time a 20-year old kid stuck in some dead-end town follows her dream of moving to the big city and putting the boring, oppressive past behind her, thank a liberal. Because really, those are the things the theocrats really want to put a stop to."

Well said...
Us Liberals love freedom (and we have a little thing for reason too)!
Theocrats love slavery to doctrine!

makes it sounds like an easy choice, don't it?

World Intellectual Property Day

Lying Media Bastards � Sky in a Bottle


Go download some mp3's, movies, books, whatever...
and remember, like our friends in negativland say,
"Copyright infringement is your best entertainment value!"

a few things

don't buy the new Dinosaur Jr. reissues...
I got "You're living all over me"
The remaster job does not sound good,
and they've crippled the CD so that
it won't play on my PC at all.
Put it in the cd-rom drive and all the machine
recognizes are the videos.
That pisses me off...

um, what else?

was in a small wreck today.
Got rear ended before I got on 45.
My car looked fine,
his car looked fine,
we shook hands and went on our way...
hopefully it'll all work out.

I now have headphones at work,
and not listening to my co-workers all day
helps my morale quite a bit.
