Okay, anyone else wanna super-glue geek girl glasses to Jenny Lewis? I'd listened to Rilo Kiley for sometime without seeing what the band looked like and for some reason I'm surprised the lead singer (Jenny Lewis) doesn't have them. Maybe because of this?


ADDENDUM: "Portions For Foxes" never fails to depress the shit out of me. Usually in a good way.

The MPAA Thinks You're StupidOh COME ON! It's hilarious! )Damned if Amelie Gillette doesn't crack me the fuck up more often than not. And that IS true about the The Great Train Robbery. A story also goes that a man was hauled out of a theater for shooting back at the screen. Watch the movie for yourself:

Fox News Racism: Intentional?

Over the past few weeks, Fox News has made racially insensitive insinuations about the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Barack Obama, referring to his wife as his "baby mama" and calling a greeting the couple exchanged a "terrorist fist jab." What other similar incidents have occurred on Fox News?

+ Estimated the amount of time Obama has spent on front porches during the course of his life

+ Repeatedly called Obama by one of his middle names, "Hussein," while omitting the other, "Christopher Horowitz"

+ Have used 78 percent more sports terminology in describing Obama's campaign than McCain's

+ Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy involuntarily shrieked when a graphic of Obama flashed behind his shoulder

+ Noted that Obama looks like the Fox News team's "one friend"

+ Whenever he is shown exiting a limousine, journalists mention that his Escalade must be in the shop

+ Scored footage of Obama visiting a Russian mobile launch missile dismantling facility with the theme from Shaft

+ Generally biased news reporting


__________________________________________________________


I admit this would be much funnier were it not for the fact I could imagine FOX News doing any or all of these things.

I'm a registered Green and I don't like the two-party system, but I have to say I agree with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] when I fear any of the Republican candidates coming into power. I mean, seriously. I used to have immense respect for John McCain until he started sniffing Bush's throne and met with a man who he had previously (and accurately) called an "agent of hatred" who he'd never meet with, the late, roasting in hell Jerry Falwell. Jerry, you might remember is the man that holds me personally responsible for the mass murder of thousands of people (one of the best Onion headlines ever, in the issue directly after 9/11: "Jerry Falwell: Is That Guy a Dick or What?"), along with my like-minded kin. Oh, and McCain is for other medieval social agenda bullshit like banning gay marriage. On the up side, he's not politicizing global warming like so many are. Let's hope America wants a different flavor of shit for awhile.

I think I need some tissues. Or some vodka. Or some secanol. Wait, the last two are downers.

Oh, The Onion, what have you done?!?! Why, why, WHY?!?!

And what is the appropriate way to mourn a fictional character? Anyone know?
