Richard Dawkins is just a big softy.

I found out recently that most Americans would rather vote in a gay president than an atheist president. Considering how popular our friends of the rainbow flag tend to be in areas where the shit is oft kicked, I find this revelation rather shocking. Moreover, I have also found the villification of Dawkins rather suprising. I suppose THE GOD DELUSIONhas much to do with it. His rather harsh dismissal of religion as "The Root of All Evil", ruffled even MY feathers at times and I consider myself a ratther thick-skinned nonbeliever. But to those unfamiliar with the entirety of Dawkin's work, I'd like to intoriduce you to a kinder, gentler version of Dickie Dawk. In these two Documentaries, Dawkins addresses his love of Humanity, and of the natural universe. A love so deep, he hates to see its elegance tarnished by anything as petty as our own prejudices and superstitions.

This 24 miute Documentary discusses how being civil, and decent to one another is an evolutionary trait that favors those who practice it, rather than self-destructive violence. This 24 minute Doc, was made in order to counter critics of his "Selfish Gene" theory who claimed it was Social Darwinism.


This deeply touching documentary has Big Rich explaining how science may actually explain (In a sense) the question that religions have been asking since the dawn of time. Inspirational for anyone who has struggled with the seemingly silly complaxities and pettiness of certain aspects of Religion.

"What does Marcellus Wallace look like?"

An awesome animation of a classic Pulp Fiction Scene Using only Typography



Oh, dear friends. Sanity is such a frail and fragile bitch. I know my glass menagerie hasn't fared all that well this week. Presented with a few obstacles, I decided that perhaps Brit can't be fully blamed for her sudden shearing. By god, if we went around judging lapses in sanity after a split or during a moment of crisis like it was sharia law, we'd all have been stoned to death or at least caned by now. No, no, the emtional breakdown is as much the right of the well-maintained international playboy, as it is of the sulky, baldheaded, baby-momma, bumpkin, pop-star. Fortunately for us playboy types, the paparazzi aren't around as we manically call 18 times a number we KNOW won't be answered. Or when we throw a temper tantrum for badly phrased jokes. Yes, the breakdown is a cruel mistress, and when you wake up the next day in rehab or in shame, if you can see through the fog of depression and into the light of reality, you realize that the haughty bitch wasn't worth the trouble, and whatever brought Mistress Meltdown into your life, was but a trifle. Life after all, does continue. Britney may be kicking herself at the moment for her choice of clipper and umbrella weilding actions but if she's a tough cookie, and I know she must be, then she'll look back at this moment from the summit of her mountain of cash, wearing her tiara, and gently say "How Silly."

So must we all. Not from our mountain of cash perhaps, but from our own molehills of reality the realisation must dawn. "Eventually, i'll smile again."

In honor of Trifling the seemingly unsurmounatble, i'd like to share the following pop art images by a brilliant artist named Donald Topp.

Anti-Nazi-Zeichentrickfilm von Disney

During WWII Disney's studio devoted a great deal of time to propaganda and training videos for the war effort. This cartoon is an awesome example of Anti Fascist propaganda of the day, and is shockingly chilling in its portrayal of life in the third Reich.

Me Like-a Mika

Ok, i know that the average age group of my blog readership is not in their early twenties, except for Ben, and Fran's Boyfriend, and Tab's Boyfriend. But my female friends who try to seem younger by dating children aside, we are, as the poet said "No Chickees of The Springe". So i feel its partially my duty as someone who's fingers are on the proverbial pulse of the proverbial artery, running through the proverbial neck of the actual nation, to educate my less hip friends as to whats what. Behold the Next Hey-Ya. The prancing pixie fellow is Mika, and the song is called GRACE KELLY. As far as I can figure Mika is celebrating the fact that he could either be Grace Kelly or Fred Mercury, and being bestowed with twigs and berries he chose the latter, much to our benefit. Enjoy it. Bounce to it. Create memories to it. I think it may be one of those songs.

145 Billion can buy a lot of stuff

145 BILLION! BILLION! That's what Bush is asking for the war in Iraq.


Let's see, what ELSE can we possibly do with that amount of money?

1. We could afford free healt insurance for every family in this country - $124 Billion

2. We could have free gas on Mondays wendesdays and Fridays - $116 Billion

3. We could give a free laptop to every student from K-12 - $86 Billion

4. Convert every Registered car in the US to run on Ethanol- $68 Billion

5. We could provide Primary Education to every child on earth- $30 Billion

6. We could provide universal acess to water and sanitation to everyone on earth- $21 Billion

7. We could end Hunger in America.-$7 Billion

Get that? We could end Hunger with 7 Billion dollars. 7 Billion dollars, and more. But we can't afford that, can we? Not when there's a war on.

Dynamite Surfing

A group of lunatics in Copenhagen surf a wave created by a huge stick of dynamite thrown into the water. My question is, how can you surf when you have huge brass ones?

Ach Laddie, Thass No a Pipe, but keep Blowin'!

Last Night got me in the mood for some piping. My brother and his girlfriend Sara, paid a visit to my pad and before you knew it, Sara was salivating all over my practice chanter. So I quickly yanked it from her and proceeded to awe my brother with the Theme to the 80's miniseries NORTH AND SOUTH on the pipes. Emboldened by the mediocre pipery, I went on You Tube and Google to catch some highlights of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.bugs_pipes

Now, for those of you who aren't aware, the "Tattoo" is a ...well, its marching bands and pipe bands all mixed together for a show of sorts. Here, THISis what you're looking for for your answers. However, for those of you who are not in the know, and could give a fiddler's fart about the massed pipes and drums of Scotland, I found two awesome clips from last year's Tattoo.

The swiss are a kooky people. They are all about being neutral, but all their citizenry is armed to the teeth, they protect the Vatican, and they have those dealdy Army knives. So When I heard the name of this band, I half expected to see the Zwingli Academy for Helvetic Youth Marching Band and Flag Corps. Boy was I wrong. What's the secret? These guys hold professions ranging from Pastry Chef to Stock Broker, and their ages range from 17-45. Rock-em Holey Cheese Heads!

Let's face it, if the kiwis were suddenly invaded by a true hostile force, the resistance would be limited to some very angry looking sheep, and a few bloodied Maori. So the New Zealand Army Band reflects the general goofienss of a protective force that needs its allies. Damn clever stuff, as far a military bands go. I'd also like to point out that they do not go for the height requirements most modern military bands insist on clinging to.Note that their River Kwai March is an excellent example of just how good a Marching Band they are, all silly stuff aside.

The Maori Chant is so freakin sweet, and that Drum Major is a Rock Star!

Marine/Terran Hybrids


View Them All!

The true culprit... BOREDOM

And they blew it, in Boston.

Joe Scarborough is calling Bush to task.

What the hell? You know you're in trouble when Scarborough Country officially turns on you.
Here are two Items from Joe "True Conservative" Scarborough where he refers to Bush as an "Idiot" and "Worse than Satan".

Just to remind you all, Joe Scarborough is a former REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN, who was one of the more Gung Ho members of Newt Gingrich's Republican Revolution.

It almost makes you feel bad for Bush...Almost.

Awesomeness in Simplicity (Superbowl Edition)

Today we'll see many awesome TV ads made by huge companies who paid millions of dollars to bring us what they may consider to be "The Best". However, I'd like to draw your attention to this little gem of a commercial.

The spot was shot with a digital still camera; no alteration with CG or post was involved.

Cartoon Rebellion!

Yeah, that's right! I'm pro-Mooninite, and Pro Sharign this Awesome Vid of Stewie and Gene Kelly Dancing.

Anchors Aweigh!

The New Faces Of Terror (Save Sean and Pete!)


The war on Terror got a little more retarded yesterday when Boston was held in the grip of the terrorizing Mooninites. In a show of alertness and crack Detective work, the Boston Police Department decided that "Lite Brite" Ads of the famed Aqua Teen Hunger Force villains ready? You sitting down? Bombs. Yes, Bombs. The fact that other , less fucktarded cities didn't seem to think that a cartoon alien giving the middle finger was a reason to shut dwon Bridges, Freeways, and waterways, didn't seem to hamper the city officials when it came time to make Arrests. Yes ARRESTS! Sean and Pete, (Pictured above) have been arrested for a "Hoax". Hmmm. That's going to stick. But my favorite part of the whole thing have been the "Tough on Terror" Responses from the City's Officials. Rather than hide their collective blockheads in shame, they've entertained me for days.

Assistant Attorney General John Grossman called the light boards "bomblike" devices and said that if they had been explosive they could have damaged transportation infrastructure in the city.

Hahaha.. And if a DA dressed in drag and fucked a goat, that would end his career, but that's quite an 'If", isn't it Johnny?

Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis called the stunt "unconscionable,"

Unconscionable, is arresting two Cartoon -Watching Stoners because your police are so retarded that they can't tell the difference between an ad and a bomb.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino called it "outrageous" and the product of "corporate greed."

I'm glad Mayor Menino is speaking out against corporate greed, I wonder if his list of donors is less offensive than a mooninite.

Democratic Rep. Ed Markey, a Boston-area congressman, added, "It would be hard to dream up a more appalling publicity stunt."

Ooh! Ooh! I can think of one! Arresting two innocent dudes for putting up ads!

I think The Mooninites said it best....
