Not to nitpick…

…but I’m going to nitpick.

I read this article today over at cnet. I actually read it about four times. The topic is, at best, moderately interesting. Go read it anyway, though. Then come back. I’ll wait.

Ah! There you are.

Is it me, or is this article written, just, horribly? Missing punctuation, incomplete thoughts, no real conclusion. I expect this type of thing from websites with wordpress in their URL (or, you know, from this site)…but from cnet? From a guy that writes for the Washington Post?

Is this the future of journalism? Maybe I’m overreacting a wee bit.

The comedy skit known as “Jizz in My Pants” starring SNL cast member Andy Samberg has recorded nearly 8 million views since being posted on Dec. 6 and is YouTube’s most watched video this month. NBC hadn’t ordered the clipped pulled from YouTube it has no right to do so.

No. No I’m not.

Conveniently Located

I totally used to live directly across the street from here. Seriously, I could see it from my window. It was between the take-out chinese food place and the take-out turtle soup place. Often while taking out I would enjoy one of their delicious banana daiquiris. One wouldn’t think that any combination of those three things (chinese food, turtle soup, and banana daiquiris) would go together.

One would be wrong.

Also, the next time one of you decries the lack of government intervention in, well, anything, I want you to look at this photo and realize that this is who you’re talking about.


This is your government.

I know that you glanced at that picture quickly, but I want you to look again. There. On her lap. It is a cat. She is riding a motorcycle with a cat on her lap, wishing you hope and holiday cheer.

Roosevelt would be so proud.

‘Tis the Season

T-minus eighty minutes until the annual Christmas bash. I’m left wondering whether this year’s events will be most like the year I had to drive a drunk foreign exchange worker home, the year my college roommate drilled the Christmas tree to the wall with a power drill, or the year the dog got drunk and pissed the bed.

I find myself with creativity and motivation today but without topic. Hrmm. 

The Golden Years

A Hartford man has been sentenced to prison for drug distribution. I guess that in itself isn’t really a big deal. He was 61. I find that to be a bit of a big deal.

No worries though, he’ll be out in four years, have four more years to recuperate, and still be younger than John McCain should he choose to run for President. Zing!

It’s a Black Thing

Mozilla has released a new internet browser. Hold off on the upgrade for just a minute, though, to ensure that you meet the required ethnic guidelines. You see, Mozilla’s new browser, Blackbird, is the, ahem (I want to get this right), web browser for the African American community


No. No no no no no. Bad software company! Bad!

E = MC Hammer

I mentioned in an earlier post that I had been experimenting with iTune’s new “Genius” feature. Allow me once more to extoll its virtues. Actually, just consider this blog to be a permanent virtue extoller when it comes to all things genius.

It borders on life changing. You will find patterns amongst your musical tastes that are both disturbing and rewarding. My new favorite game to play is “what song will be good with this song?” It is the musical equivalent of smores. Which everyone knows are delicious.

Doth Protest Too Much

A spokesman for Al Gore indicated today that he is not seeking any type of position within the new administration (Al Gore, that is, not the spokesman). Which, I guess, would make him the only Democrat that isn’t these days. 


Setting the Bar High

Republicans are falling over themselves congratulating each other for winning a Congressional seat in Louisiana. Anh “Joseph” Cao has succeeded, yes. Of that there is no doubt. He has handily defeated long time Democrat incumbent William Jefferson. He is the new Republican Giant Slayer that will save the Republican party!

If they can only get all of their opponents in the 2010 midterm elections to get indicted for bribery after an FBI investigation finds $90,000 of marked money in their freezer, then they are going to set the political world on fire.

Bravo, sir. This slow clap is completely, non-sarcastically, for you.

Never the Bride

The Decemberists new singles series, Always the Bridesmaid, has wrapped itself up. Three nice little volumes of two songs a piece, ranging from the powerfully poppy to the massively maudlin. 


Methinks, if one had access to a device capable of arranging groups of songs into a continual, say, playlist, that this might make for a decent little pseudo-album.

If only such a device existed.
