just some stuff for you to read

there are few people i hate more than oj simpson. dude is a straight-up psycho.

mc sent me this blog, which i thought was high-larious. i happen to like horses in general, but i like assholeness sometimes even more.

a lot of my (dork) friends take part in fantasy sports leagues. i will never forget the amazing meeting of the minds that took place in my front room in 2003, when ecf and rb had a bunch of people over to draft their fantasy basketball teams - there was a long sheet of paper that jh stole from his students' art room hung on the wall so that they could properly write in their picks, and it stayed up for a while. what's even MORE dorky? ds sent me this - it's a fantasy CONGRESS league. damn. even when i really did live in dc, and would go to receptions for the free wine and so i could see politicians i admire speak, i would never have participated in this.

remember how i posted not too long ago about how much i hated having to look for clothes at wal-mart? well, this beats that. at least the $7 shoes weren't fashioned after NAZI GEAR. christ! could i POSSIBLY find wal-mart any more distasteful? the link is from the consumerist, a website that i had not been familiar with but now think is pretty awesome.

the new johnny cash video: awesome song. still torn on whether it's a great concept (it's supposed to be a part of the whole africa "red" campaign) or it's an appalling cred-builder for losers. wtf with some of the people who randomly show up?

technically, angry young men are not funny. but they are when they post on craig's list - especially when the topic is "to the women who work in my office . . . i hate you." my favorite part: "Blonde woman who works for accounting- I know that you are 30, not 25 and I also know that at the Christmas party last year you had sex with the bosses son in the broom closet and that he got you pregnant. Please don’t insult me in front of our coworkers again or I will tell everyone."

the ny times interviewed christopher guest!

denmark pays for its indie bands to tour america, thus acting as ambassadors!

my mom was right about dungeons and dragons being satanic and driving you to kill!

who was the better 80s rock band, R.E.M. or U2? i know how i feel about this huge moral quandary but i am not yet ready to discuss it.

david copperfield: insanely sexy, with the most useful skills, and his magic is so strong that he can FIGHT CRIME. swoooooon.

finally saw borat. of all of the things to note - and there are PLENTY - i think that my favorite line was "he's a real chocolate face - not makeup!"
