Yeah, I stole this link from Fark, but this is a pretty cool optical illusion. #2 doesn't do much for me, but 1 and 3 caught me with my mouth open. Lotsa cool ones here too.

If we hadn't done drugs, would we have done ministry work? Honduras 2005-2006
Gotta say -- ballsy move!
Desktop Sidebar is awesome for XP & PC's. I'm amazed at the new features -- I pop in a bunch of feeder sites, like My blog feed, or the Oldschool CxC blog feed (which I just enabled), and it'll send you any new posts into your feed-reader.
And the coolest part is 'make newspaper', which will make a webpage on your PC showing all the newest items, linked to the websites.
Oh well, it doesn't blow me away like Google Earth exactly, but we're moving closer every day -- digitally.
Hey, anyone can join me on tribe.net -- another amazing site.

I second, third, and fourth the complaints about the format. I didn't respond to Ari a while back in part because I can't stand these huge posts getting bigger with edited comments -- can we turn that off? I don't want anyone editing my posts like that - either comment or post anew.

Oh yeah, also because he's bat-shit insane. But that goes without saying. (Good to see you the other week Ari!)

SO: If you don't read Nerve Scanner, how else would find out about Tetka?

re: Sony's commentary -- I'd have liked to see it too. Don't know where it went?!?? And I don't know Zog either, but if the Right can have whacko extremists and PAC's, the Left needs 'em too. HA HA

re: this format --> I don't like that comments are hidden. That seems ... lame.
If you're going to comment, I suggest editing someone else's post and adding the 'less than' font color="blue" 'great than' tag and
'less than' /font 'greater than' to end that font.

I mean, this is the closest some of us get to any kind of chatting, so let's keep it two-ways!

Hope everyone's well. Hope to see Eric tonight for a bit. Looking forward to it. PEACE!

Eminem - a lame phenomenon as bad as Elvis Presley.
(from Without Me Lyrics - The Eminem Show Album)
Though I'm not the first king of controversy/
I am the worst thing since Elvis Presley, to do Black Music so selfishly/
and use it to get myself wealthy (Hey)/
there's a concept that works/
20 million other white rappers emerge/
but no matter how many fish in the sea it'd be so empty without me

I'm struggling with this format. I see that my early comments to Ari never got published. Anyway, that discussion has been joined and as a UCB grad and Century City Lawyer I can see both sides of the discussion (except for the kooky argument that US-ZOG caused 9/11, {AD inserted Link} that's just sweaty nuts). But I like that we can do this, free from the overeaching security state this country is coasting into on winds of fear mongering alliance of the truly paranoid/Homeland Security entrepenuer/political posturers.

Let us review some favorite Supreme Court pronouncements (BTW, no one mentions him, but I'm pulling for Judge Easterbrook, Official brother of TMQ), courtesy of reason.com:

“Fear of serious injury cannot alone justify suppression of free speech and assembly. Men feared witches and burned women. It is the function of speech to free men from the bondage of irrational fears.” Brandeis.

“..whether the legislation under review is wise or unwise is a matter with which we have nothing to do. Whether it is likely to work well or work ill presents a question entirely irrelevant to the issue. The only legitimate inquiry we can make is whether it is constitutional. If it is not, its virtues, if it have any, cannot save it; if it is, its faults cannot be invoked to accomplish its destruction. If the provisions of the Constitution be not upheld when they pinch as well as when they comfort, they may as well be abandoned.” George Sutherland

ought to be in that movie blog but that shit be dead.

FLASHBACK TO X: reading about it in the New Zealand Airport,
and then back to the courtroom in 1969.

The Official Legend is created and
the media takes it from there. The
glitter of official lies and the
epic splendor of the thought-numbing
funeral of J.F.K. confuse the eye
and confound the understanding.
Hitler always said "the bigger the
lie, the more people will believe
it." Lee Oswald - a crazed, lonely
man who wanted attention and got it
by killing a President, was only the
first in a long line of patsies. In
later years Bobby Kennedy and Martin
Luther King, men whose commitment to
change and to peace would make them
dangerous to men who are committed
to war, would follow, also killed by
such "lonely, crazed men," who remove
our guilt by making murder a
meaningless act of a loner. We have
all become Hamlets in our country -
children of a slain father - leader
whose killers still possess the
throne. The ghost of John F. Kennedy
confronts us with the secret murder
at the heart of the American dream.
He forces on us the appalling
questions: Of what is our
Constitution made? What is our
citizenship, and more, our lives
worth? What is the future of a
democracy where a President can be
assassinated under conspicuously
suspicious circumstances while the
machinery of legal action scarcely
trembles? How many political murders,
disguised as heart attacks, cancer,
suicides, airplane and car crashes,
drug overdoses will occur before
they are exposed for what they are?

what will happen when the Iraq chickens come home to roost?

remember that dude JV? I miss his writing. I remember one time he said "spilt spunk in the loos of labor"

"It's not a matter of whether the war is not real, or if it is, Victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the grueling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia but to keep the very structure of society intact."
