THE PRESIDENT: I need some ribs.

This is completely surreal. Thanks to Dan Sicko for the pointer.

nb: this President has only held 11 press conferences in three years in office.

I have never been more convinced of the absolute necessity of voting in presidential elections.

Harmonies of Texture and Color

"A squid eating dough in a polyethelene bag is fast and bulbous, dig me?"

-Captain Beefheart

Observed approximately 7AM, at the intersection of Grand River and Washington Blvd., Detroit, MI, USA:

A man, roughly 325+ pounds (147 kilograms), wearing much gold jewelry, clad in a yellow-orange track suit, eating Cheetos and drinking Faygo orange soda.

I had no camera.

Memo to "J.T."

Hey guy, decaf next time.

I bet you think this song is about you
Don't you
Don't you?

Ease up, you're going to strain a muscle or something.

I'd still like to know who took it upon themselves to "excerpt" that silly little entry, with important context links (namely, this one) stripped, when I made a point not to send a ping. I always thought those silly licenses people attach to their weblogs were bogus and unnecessary, but if people are going to be dumbasses I can see the reasons, at least from a CYA point-of-view.

edit: Why operating a keyboard after a night of drinking is usually a bad idea. If you've got anything to say about this, post it as a comment here, and leave poor Sam and his readers out of it.

edit: apparently it's an automated referrer-chasing script. That restores my faith in humanity a bit -- it's good to know that no live human was involved in that appalling bit of context-free quoting. Excuse the "license" bit above as the rantings of someone operating under the influence of too little sleep and too much JT.

JT -- no hard feelings. Peace.

Unhappy in teh trunk? We understand yoo!

"This is the way, step inside"

Okay, so Dave Winer ranted, and Mark Pilgrim parodied it, and then Dave Winer, um, exploded, spewing Manila-fragments all over poor Sam Ruby’s weblog.

The explanation


Dear Doctor Science,
Why is musician Keith Richards still alive?

-- Wendy Woollett from Missoula, MT

Check your data. The most emaciated of the Rolling Stones died from an overdose sometime in the early seventies, and was replaced by a resentful Chuck Berry, who just couldn't get past the irony of having to pretend he was a dead white guy in order to get paid well to perform his own music. But Chuck took to his new role with his usual zest and verve, eventually convincing even stadium crowds that he was Mick Jagger's pimply cohort, even affecting a plausible English accent.

I've been on the Dr. Science mailing list since the glaciers melted. The audio version is also available on many NPR affiliates.

Things I Just Don't Get: Botox

Human vanity knows no limits, of course: that's a given. I still don't understand Botox, though. Paralyzing your facial muscles to prevent wrinkles -- dude, that's so f'ed up. You have to wonder how they figured out that botulinim toxin eliminates wrinkles. Did some old lady get a bad batch of canned goods and kick the bucket? Did the pathologist say, "Gee, poor old bird died of botulism-induced respiratory failure, but wow, her skin looks fantastic!"
