Favorite Animal Stories of the Day

August 22, 2008

Two stories on Philly.com involving animals. 

The first, is this story, where a man in Manasquan, New Jersey was atrested for beating a sea gull to death. 

Now, I love animals.  I really do.  But the sea gulls on the Jersey shore are rats with wings.  Scavengers who would take infants and drop them on the rocks and eat them if they could. 

I understand that you don’t want to encourage this behavior.  But after all the sea gull shit that has been dropped on people.  For all of the sandwiches that has been taken out of my hands by these stinkin birds.  It’s nice to see the top-of-the-food chain get it comeuppance just once. 

The man should be given a medal


And then there’s this story.  That started with the following headline: Feral Pigs on loose. 

My world isn’t shattered by this headline, but it is…. altered slightly.


XPN Essential Songs

August 21, 2008

I’ve been waiting for this list, for a while. Or a list just like it.

For the past 4 years, the radio station in Philadelphia, WXPN comes up with a list of the best somethings in music.  The first year it was songs, the second year it was albums, the third year it was artists, the fourth year it was moments. 

And each time (except for the first year), the answer was obvious (and dominated by the 60’s and 70’s, which is normal given their demographics).

Integrity and False Prophets

August 19, 2008

My wife introduced me to modern day country music when we started dating. And with someone with my political leanings, it’s sometimes difficult to separate the music from the message or more specifically the mentality.

Tequilla Fanny-Bangers

August 7, 2008

I’ve always preferred daily comics to the Sunday funnies.  It makes sense, as I like serialized entertainment rather than entertainment contained in a nice small package.   I guess this extends to even short 4-panel illustrated humor strips.  So, I nearly skipped over today’s Bloom County (retro) which is one of my favorites of all time… (here is the exerpt)

My Serendipitous Idea for 2008

June 30, 2008

Every so often, I get an idea.  A really good idea.  A really good idea about something that I could sell to the general public, and make tons of cash. 

Many times, like when the same joke is made by two people, it’s something that many people come up with, but it takes the person with the knowhow, the marketing, and the capital to put it into play.

I only have the idea.
