Republican Congressional candidate Howard Kaloogian Still Lying

Either he's stupid, or he thinks his supporters are stupid.

25 Years Ago

Hinckley shot Reagan. You likely know all about it, about how this nut wanted to impress Jodie Foster. Did you know this?

Not saying this means anything. Just interesting.

Why Doesn't Iraqi TV Show Good News?

A message on Iraq TV:

وزارة الدفاع تدعو المواطنين الى عدم الانصياع لاوامر دوريات الجيش والشرطة الليلية اذا لم تكن برفقة قوات الت<حا العاملة في تلك المنطقة What it says.


FCC's War On Fucking Obscenities: Update

TV censors self, doesn't take a chance.


Buck Owens

From here:
Owens had made smart investments in real estate, music publishing and management, a recording studio and television station -- as well as a pair of radio stations, one in his adopted home. Problem was, listeners were calling and asking those stations to "play less Buck Owens, Dwight Yoakam, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Jr. and other artists like that," Owens recalled with glee during his 1989 stop here. Apparently those listeners had no idea who owned the stations.

So, Owens asked, "Do I play raucous honky-tonk music, raw with that edge and gusto, or do I take the edge off, soften up the songs, change the instrumentation and be something that I ain't?"

For the man whose first No. 1 had been the insistent "Act Naturally," to be something he "ain't" was never an option. "We ought to get those people rockin' chairs, put 'em out back with some old Eddy Arnold records and say, 'Here you are, baby, now turn my radio station off. Don't be listening to me. I don't want to play for you.' "

George W. Bush Is An Evil Lying Rotten Shithead. Blair, Too

What they said in a secret memo, and what they said in public.

And here's more on the fucking liar. Really, how do you like that, America? President askes for the greatest sacrifice our toops can make, gets them stuck in a shithole, while all the time lying -- knowing that there were no WMDs, but invading anyway. What the fuck? This goes beyond what my paranoid fears were when this shit was "elected." Gosh, maybe he'll do right, I thought when he had his arm around that fireman. Wong.

Meet Elvis Pummel

Germany's most unique rock and roller. Ed Wood + Residents + '50s Rock = Elvis Pummel.

Remake Remodel

1973 -- What band in such pre-punk, pre-disco, pre-New Wave days would have some disco lounge singer, hippies, glam rockers and a freak playing some electronic thing?

America is Waiting

Brian Eno and David Byrne.


RIP, Buck Owens


Barbara Bush Is A Vile Piece of Evil Shit

You heard me.

Dixie Chicked

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over
What the heck are they singing about?


Crazy Horses

Just as we find new great old clips, others are taken away. Some folks have had their stuff deleted by the lawyer-fairies I assume. So some vids below may not work.

Thank Smith for the Osmonds!

The Good News!

The Good News is, if you're a Christian, you're going to be Called Up for the Second coming, so you can tell the world to go fuck itself!

This goes for the environment, it goes for the economy, and it goes for war -- all the problems are just signs of the Apocalypse and really aren't worth expending energy to fix or even deal with. Why bother, if you're going to be Saved and all others will be Left Behind?


Shitty Fucks

FCC on the rampage again.



In a way, Cal Thomas had a point: "All of the printed and voiced prophecies should be saved in an archive. When these false prophets again appear, they can be reminded of the error of their previous ways and at least be offered an opportunity to recant and repent. Otherwise, they will return to us in another situation where their expertise will be acknowledged, or taken for granted, but their credibility will be lacking. "

Quotes about our Great Iraq Victory from 2003.

Saying "told you so" doesn't make me feel better. Maybe if I could say it while repeatedly punching certain windbags in their fat guts over and over would help.


Feingold Rocks

What do you do if a president violates the constitution which he's sworn to uphold and defend? Let's start with a little censuring. Cat-killer Frist has hissy fit.



You make $161,000 a year. You're a high-ranking aid at the White House, THE top domestic policy adviser. You were nominated to be a Federal Circuit Court judge by the president. You are known as the embodiment of "conservative values." 

You suddenly quit your job to "spend more time with family." Why?


Yes, Bush Sucks

Most agree.


Tim Schreiber, Thank You For Your Booty Raps

The Love God?

I've seen this. Since it's like a late-60a Disney comedy revolving around sex, it's quite disorienting.

Another Hero Falls

Thomas Kinkade is famous for his luminous landscapes and street scenes, those dreamy, deliberately inspirational images he says have brought "God's light" into people's lives, even as they have made him one of America's most collected artists.

A devout Christian who calls himself the "Painter of Light," Kinkade trades heavily on his beliefs and says God has guided his brush — and his life — for the last 20 years.

You see where this is headed, right?
...And then there is Kinkade's proclivity for "ritual territory marking," as he called it, which allegedly manifested itself in the late 1990s outside the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim.

"This one's for you, Walt," the artist quipped late one night as he urinated on a Winnie the Pooh figure, said Terry Sheppard, a former vice president for Kinkade's company, in an interview.



And I bring you... Fire!



Of the 1,020 adults surveyed, 59% said President Bush can no longer manage the government effectively. An overwhelmingly number say they oppose the Dubai ports deal. Asked who they would likely vote for in November, 53% picked Democrats, 39% Republicans.

One Republican Doesn't Like Ann Coulter

That's pretty much the led for this story on how the Vile One dropped out of speaking at an official GOP Lincoln Day Dinner to be put on by the Kent County Republicans in Michigan. But the real question is, why do the rest love her? Western Michigan University's College Republicans "spent" (most came from private doners) something like $20,000 to hear her words of wisdom. The Michigan GOP were going to pay her $35,000.

Why do they love her so? Because she reflects their views. That's all we need to know.
