Bob Harris should really start blogging full time. Also, wasn't that the name of Bill Murray's character in Lost In Translation? Just saying.

Can anyone tell me how to dance The Capitols' Cool Jerk? Anyone? Bueller?


Bill Cosby Freaks Out, attacks Wanda Sykes, still upset over cancelation of Cosby Mysteries.

At a NAACP dinner celebrating Brown v. Board of Education:

"They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English," he exclaimed. "I can't even talk the way these people talk: 'Why you ain't,' 'Where you is' . . . And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. . . . Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. . . . You can't be a doctor with that kind of shit coming out of your mouth!"


A: Yes. I killed innocent people for our government. For what? What did I do? Where is the good coming out of it? I feel like I've had a hand in some sort of evil lie at the hands of our government. I just feel embarrassed, ashamed about it.


Oliver North, one of America's leading experts on war crimes, boils down the issue of torture as perpetrated by "a group of obviously twisted young people with leashes and weird sex acts, the kind of thing that you might find on any college campus."

We're living on the rim!


Obscure Knowledge #3
I have been working today on compiling a discography of the Sugar Hill Record Label as part of my pledge that "whenever I find the answer to something that I previously unsuccessfully (Googled) for, I will post it here so that if somebody else is looking for it, they can at least find this page."

I've been casually collecting Sugar Hill records for years now, but have never found a list of what was released so I've taken it upon myself to create such a list, beginning with the ones I own and then trying to fill in the rest with research. So if that is your type of thing, check out the list of Sugarhill singles I've compiled so far.

Also, thanks to Blogger for their hosting services of what is a cool project but not really a blog.

Also, as part of my pledge, see my old post about the safety of eating seaweed you find in the ocean and the nutritional content of a Young Coconut.


What's the world coming to when you can't say "Holy Zombie Jesus" on cable television?


I do love Ralph Nader and Hate Joe Lieberman... I'd donate money to Nader for this.

Dorsey! Dorsey! Dorsey! First Garcia got arrested for drunk driving at Jack in the Box, and now his replacement has a severe groin injury.

For now, the starting job falls to Orinda native Ken Dorsey.


Your cousin, the fugu, shares a bunch of junk-DNA with you. Your junk-DNA gives you latent abilities. You can inflate when frightened, and you can poison Japanese people when improperly prepared.

The irony, Mr. Lawson said, is that the public spectacle might have been avoided if the military and the federal government had been responsive to his claims that his nephew was simply following orders.

"The Army had the opportunity for this not to come out, not to be on 60 Minutes," he said. "But the Army decided to prosecute those six G.I.'s because they thought me and my family were a bunch of poor, dirt people who could not do anything about it. But unfortunately, that was not the case."

Have fun.


Things People Believe Why Not Bush?

12. Bush has taken part in Shinto ceremonies, bowing down to idols at a Shinto temple in Japan. Blasphemy and idolatry is not Christian behavior.

13. George W. Bush has actually increased the funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, which funds blasphemy!


At this time, I'd like to quote an entire post from Pandagon:

So, apparently, Kerry's going to be getting attacked for falling off of a bike. Which is fine, considering bikes don't have numerous independent gyroscopes designed to make sure that they never fall over.

Yes, let's compare records of falling over on personal conveyances. Bring it on.

Sorry, but sometimes a certain phrasing can't be improved upon.
