1986 WS Redux

Just found this, it's the 1986 World Series Game 6, recreated with the 8 bit NES's RBI Baseball, and synched up perfectly with Vin Scully's original play by play.

Battlestar prequel announced!

SciFi just announced that they'll start producing a Battlestar Galactica prequel called "Caprica". It takes place 50 years prior to the current series, just before the development of the first Cylon. *drool*

A note to those of you out there who aren't watching BSG: You're missing one of the best shows on television, I swear.

Jeez, just as I was getting used to my sexy little Motorola RAZR, along comes the Nokia N93. *drool* Must have.... *drool*

Let's Go Go Go White Sox!

My boys in black have been on an utter tear lately combining great pitching with great hitting to take the lead in the A.L. Central having won the last 8 in a row. This team could be an utter monster if they keep this up. They're off on a ten day, eight game road trip though, which should prove to be a good test of their mettle.

God I love baseball!

This is so totally fucked up, and just the sort of thing that makes me laugh.

Uncle Shelby's ABZ's

Here's a great little post somebody put up, scans from Shel Silverstein's "Uncle Shelby's ABZ's", originally published in Playboy in August of 1961. Funny adult humor from a man I'm sure many of you know only by his children's work.


Seriously, my condolences, Cubs fans. For those who haven't heard (and cried) already, Derrek Lee will be out for at least 8 weeks with a broken wrist.

Happy 4/20!

Happy 4/20 bitches! May your stash always be full and your pipes always clean!

MS Fanboy slams Vista

Thanks to Mike Lawler for sending me this, a great article about why Vista sucks (notice the tense) by a Microsoft fanboy. A good little article talking about how Vista fails and the reasons why Vista will be seen as a major failure by Microsoft. For those SysAdmins out there, be sure to read about UAP, Microsoft's new security feature designed to mimic the user/admin split found in Mac OS X and Linux. Apparently you can no longer delete a desktop icon without jumping through a half dozen warning screens. Ha! All this and it hasn't even been released yet!

It's official: The White Stripes are no longer cool

You had to question their indie cred when they won the Grammy. But hey, Elephant was a fucking spectacular album, so you let it slide. You had to wonder when their last album was an overproduced stinker with only two decent tracks. But now, it's official, Jack White has sold out. Yes, that's him doing a jingle (A JINGLE?!?!) for Coca-Cola. That's right, he's shilling for the man.

I really shouldn't be upset, should I? This is the way of the world, right? The circle is unbroken?

Secret Love

As some of you may know, I'm not a big fan of The Lord Of The Rings. After watching the first movie, I was convinced that J.R. Tolkien was a closet homosexual. Can you blame me? I had just spent 3 hours watching hairy footed midgets hug and cry and talk about their feelings for each other. Would it have killed him to put one freakin' female in a major role?

Well, I am not alone. TBS is running some parody promos to hype upcoming showings of LOTR on their network. Witness a love that dare not speak its name, a secret love...

Don't worry Cubs fans!

Here's a little hope for all you Cubs fans out there, courtesy of America's Finest News Source, The Onion.

Wow, if I only had $90 I could just drop without even thinking about it. I'd get me a remote controlled Dalek over at Think Geek and take over the world. Or just annoy people at the office. Or the cats. That would be fun....

Jesus is Dead! Happy Easter!

Now go to church, you heathen swine. When you get home, fix yourself a nice warm bowl of easter bunny stew. And I better not catch you playing with any of those filthy pagan colored eggs...

Speaking of enormous pricks...

Here's horrible piece of internet gossip on Something Awful that can't possibly be true, but is a fun read nonetheless, if for no other reason than you hope that just one of the allegations is actually true. The Rumsfeld stuff has got to be my favorite of the bunch. Big pantyhouse wearing freak that he is. Ha!

Festival of the Steel Phallus

Ah Japan, is there anything you don't have? How about a little fertility festival celebrating the penis? It's called Kanamara Matsuri, literally translated as the "Festival of the Steel Penis". Can you imagine what all the awful Puritans in this country would do if they saw this marching down the street???

Art & Pooping

Here's a real low brow post for all my high class friends. Behold, the mirrored toilet. It's a public toilet, surrounded by one-way mirrored glass. You can see out, but they can't see in. And believe me, you can see out, all the way out in every direction. There's one in Houston if you're really dying to use it and don't want to fly overseas.

I know art when I see it, and that's art!

Ignore the coming apocalypse

Ran across a good article in The New Yorker by Seymour Hersh, The Iran Plans, talking about what the Bush Administration has in store for dealing with Iran's nuclear ambitions. Boy, if you thought they had fucked up in Iraq, just get a load of this.

I for one will be outside enjoying the flowers, the birds, and the fresh air while they and I are still around to appreciate it...

You've got to be kidding me

Why does this sound like the same thing as the Nazis opening up a Jewish Cultural Center?

Joe Strummer's immortal, I swear

Reuters UK is reporting that a man was taken off an airplane and detained by police as a suspected terrorist after the cabbie who took him to the airport overheard him singing along to The Clash's "London Calling".

Yankees Suck

One good baseball post deserves another. With love always comes hate: Apparently the caps are all the rage...

Sox Win!

Huzzah! Baseball season is upon us again. Just when you think you've gotten used to it not being around, it sneaks up on you.

The Sox won their season opener last night against their division rivals, the Cleveland Indians, by a score of 10-4. Jim Thome hit his first dinger of the year and Brandon McCarthy provides some solid relief for his first win of the year. All in all, the boys looked like they were ready to play. Unfortunately I say that having only seen the first 3 innings of the game (damn rain!).
