Carol Brown Just Took a Bus Out of Town

Finished both seasons of "Flight of the Conchords" a week or so ago and have been listening to this song ever since. I love how these guys can make an amazing song with a great sound but is also hilarious.

Including dance songs... (NSFW)

Matt Damon on Sarah Palin

Saying what everyone was thinking and puts it in terms so succinct and dead on it's scary. Ps sorry for all the Palin bashing as of late, I just feel like it needs to be done.

That whole 9/11 thing didn't happen.

Rudy Giuliani is a prick. He'll say/do anything to attack Obama and make himself look good.

Another win for WARF

University of Wisconsin-Madison's "hard hiting intellectual property adjunct" won a court battle today over a potential cholesterol lowering drug. I love that I attend a University that cares so much about intellectual property and making sure its researchers get what they deserve both in terms of notoriety and financial recognition.

And so it begins... again.

I'll be resuming the blog here shortly with your normal balance of narrative, linking, and ranting. No real excuse for why I haven't been keeping it up, just been busy with the whole grad school/moving to Madison thing. I hope that you all will post criticism, corrections, thoughts, and anything else you want in the comments section and will forgive me my many instances of ignorance. Thanks for reading and stay in touch. Peace

Hippy Liberal D-bags

I have seen entirely too many people in my life just like these protesters at the DNC Convention in Denver. They come from privileged households and like to play protester and revolutionary in order to live out dreams of the 1960's and 70's. While I do not claim to be an expert in Che Guevara, I do not believe his thoughts and convictions blend necessarilly all that well with Starbucks Cappuccino and a MacBook Air. Money quote from the article:
Catching yourself in the act of small-time disobedience, only to scurry back to the bosom of the same middle class that made this miserable bout of free time possible, is a limp homage indeed to the era of blowing up the public pissers in government buildings. Yet the superficiality is strangely appropriate.

People may perceive this as being hypocriticle on my part, but I do not pretend to be more than I am. I understand I am a blessed white boy from Iowa and not on the frontlines helping change America and the world. That being said, it won't stop me from reading Che's book. I just won't dawn birkenstocks and chant "Drop pants, not bombs."

The DNC Drinking Game

The reason why I love The New Republic.

Number 7: Take a drink if either Iraq or the environment are described as a "shitstorm."

Bloody brilliant ad from the Obama Campaign.

He's Gone Too Far Contd
