Let this be a lesson to all you hotlinking turkeys out there: Mess with the best, die like the rest. I caught some fool trying to use a picture I was hosting of a Butterfinger bar. So I returned the favor for his potential slowing up of my site by swapping that picture out for […]

No broomsticks in the White House!

September 25th, 2008 · 8 Comments

Folks, I’m in quite a pickle. A big, fat kosher dill. Lemme lay it out for yas: See, I absolutely disagree with 99 percent of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s political positions. Her draconian views on abortion, support for abstinence-only teaching programs, cavalier attitude towards war with Russia, opposition to same-sex marriage, opposition to […]

Top 10: Video Game Songs

September 23rd, 2008 · 53 Comments

In middle school I once filled a cassette tape full of my favorite songs from video games—I simply held my tape player’s built-in microphone up to my television speakers, turned up the volume and cued up each level. Wish I still had that tape! Video game music was a big part of my life, at […]

“Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream”
-George W. Bush
“We are family / I’ve got all my sisters with me.”

September 18th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Ever send in a cover letter and feel a little iffy about it? “What if I misspelled the Hiring Manager’s name? Shit–I should’ve put a comma instead of a semi-colon here. Why must I be so lax and irresponsible with my use of semi-colons?!?” Well, now you can take a deep breath and bask in […]
