Why don’t you get the spider to kill William F. Buckley for you? That was in poor taste.
This afternoon's bad news for Pats fans
New England Patriots running back Kevin Faulk was nabbed for possession of marijuana at a Lil’ Wayne concert, Friday. He’s actually the second Pats player to be cited for possession this month, alone. Willie Andrews was found with a half-pound of weed. The 78-year-old Junior (Senior) Seau reportedly then asked Faulk and Andrews to stop “holding out on the grass” and...
Stuff White People Like: #76 Bottles of Water
What? You expect us to drink water straight from the tap like plebs? Logically, you would assume that drinking the most expensive premium bottled water (Fiji and Voss) would be enough to show the world that you are too good for tap water. And a few years ago, you would have been right. But lately, advanced white people have been getting very upset about all of the waste that comes with drinking...
This morning's bad news for Pats fans
The New England Patriots released Roosevelt Colvin, their most talented linebacker, and only starting linebacker who isn’t in the twilight of his career. I’m sure the 78-year-old Junior (Senior) Seau has a couple more good years left in him.
Two sites - infinite reasons to vote for Barack...
Barack Obama: Helped you move a sofa, warmed up your car for you, folded you an origami crane, and loves your laugh. Hillary, on the other hand: Messed with all the radio presets in your car, washed your whites with darks, installed Kazaa on your work computer, pops her collar, and uses MSG.
J-E-T-S, JETS, JETS, JETS!
I have a new favorite AFC East team, and it’s the New York Jets. According the the Boston Globe, there is a certain restriction as linebacker Jonathan Vilma looks for a trade: Two sources with ties to Vilma said the 2004 first-round pick has permission to shop his services to 30 of the league’s teams, but not the Patriots. See, Patriots? This is the type of shit that happens when you...

A lie ain't a side of a story. It's just a lie.
Sunday definitely saw the best episode of The Wire this season, although I’ve sufficiently enjoyed the previous seven episodes. Season 5 has been unfairly dragged through the mud by the likes of Jeffrey Goldberg and David Plotz on Slate. Sure, it’s obvious that when you try to squeeze 13 episodes of material into 10 segments, it’s going to lose some of the flow and tempo of the...
How can I piss off an anonymous donor?
In Kelvin Sampson’s $750,000 settlement with Indiana University, $550,000 came from an anonymous donor. In other IU news, Woodburn Hall has been renamed Mark Cuban Hall.
The George W. Bush Libary has a home
SMU has drawn the short straw, according to politico.com. Texas A&M and Baylor are two institutions lucky enough not to be chosen to house W’s Presidential Library. It is presumed that Liberty, Bob Jones, and Kaplan College were also in the running. “I look forward to the day when both the general public and scholars come and explore the important and challenging issues our nation has...
Two bitchin’ videos for the price of one. Boing Boing TV is responsible for unearthing this gem. I’ve flipped the bird on countless occaisions, but apparently I’m not doing it right. Via Gawker
American Gangster: Characters Welcome
I finally saw American Gangster, and aside from the fact that Frank Lucas gets 15 YEARS in jail for killing literally thousands of people (can’t argue with a true story), my biggest beef was with the casting. There were so many recognizable stars, I could never accept the characters for who they were. Denzel’s character was truly ruthless in Training Day, but for the entire 3+ hours, I...
I've finally arrived
I’m now a member of the blogosphere, which means if I mention Barack Obama in the next half year, CNN will feature this page on a futuristic touch screen.
