One of the funnier appearances ever on an MTV awards show.

The Fragile Army

Um, does this have anything to do with the album being delayed until 2007?

Thanks to Valler who bought me tickets to The Spree show on September 10The Fragile Army: "nspiration from Tibor Kalman

?€œIn my lifetime I have witnessed the creation of the greatest accumulation of
wealth in history. More than we need to feed the hungry, house the homeless, cure
the sick throughout the world. In pursuit of this wealth we have already endangered
most of our environment. Consumption is a treatable disease. Consumer culture is an
oxymoron. Wealth is poverty. Religion works better for corporations than for people.
Most media, architecture, design and art exist for the sole purpose of creating

Your children will smash your understanding, knowledge and reality. You will be
better off. Then they will leave. You will miss them forever. But I?€™m not
pessimistic. Future generations not burdened by the egotism of having created wealth
will be able to create a righteous society, l ive in harmony with nature and
germinate culture from the few grains not yet destroyed.

Rules are good. Break them. Good designers (and writers and artists) make trouble.
Eventually you?€™ll forget all this but there will be plenty of new ideas to choose
from. And I believe that they?€™ll be better.

Everything is an experiment.

The perfect state of creative bliss is having power (you are 50) and knowing nothing
(you are 9). This assures an interesting and successful outcome. As soon as you
learn move on. You?€™ll see it better if you look upside down. Success = boredom.
Mistakes, misunderstandings, and mis-comprehensions provide fresh ideas.

New ideas exist in high art (often called art) and low art (sometimes called
vernacular). I have never found much in between. Good clients are smarter than you.
Bad clients are dumber than you. Graphic design is a means, not an end. A language,
not content. I am ever in search of the simple elegant seductive maybe ev en obvious
IDEA. With this in my pocket I cannot fail. This must be true because I am writing
it in the middle of the night.?€?

Lance Bass of `N Sync reveals he's gay - Yahoo! News

Here's a new celebrity watch game idea I've just come up with.

You know the Dead Pool, where you predict which celebrities will die in the coming year? Let's do a Gay Pool.

Lance Bass of `N Sync reveals he's gay - Yahoo! News: "NEW YORK -
Lance Bass, band member of 'N Sync, says he's gay and in a 'very stable' relationship with a reality show star. Bass, who formed 'N Sync with
Justin Timberlake,
JC Chasez,
Joey Fatone and
Chris Kirkpatrick, tells People magazine that he didn't earlier disclose his sexuality because he didn't want to affect the group's popularity.

'I knew that I was in this popular band and I had four other guys' careers in my hand, and I knew that if I ever acted on it or even said (that I was gay), it would overpower everything,' he tells the magazine.

'N Sync is known for a string of hits including 'Bye Bye Bye' and 'It's Gonna Be Me.' The band went on hiatus in 2002. Bass has also found headlines for undertaking astronaut training and failing to raise money for a trip into space.

Bass says he wondered if his coming out could prompt 'the end of 'N Sync.' He explains, 'So I had that weight on me of like, `Wow, if I ever let anyone know, it's bad.' So I just never did.'

The singer says he's in a 'very stable' relationship with 32-year-old actor Reichen Lehmkuhl, winner of season four of CBS' 'Amazing Race.'"

Not sure how many of you know this, but in addition to surprise affinities towards Rasslin', the occasional Backstreet Boys song, and chain restaurants, I really like Shih-Tzus.

Best Week Ever ? Blog Archive ? Understanding A Piven Party: "Understanding A Piven Party

pivenhat.jpgWhen aging bachelor Jeremy Piven has a birthday party, his boys pull out all the stops - possibly because they’re not sure how many he’s going to have left. Party favors, birthday cake, music, dancing and, of course, wild young girls are all staples at any classic Piven party. But while the resulting photographic documentation might leave the untrained viewer confused about what in the hell actually happens at these little soirees, your friends here at BWE have used our insider knowledge to provide you with narrative captions explaining the progression of events at this particular Piven party. Join the party after the jump.

(Image removed at request of source. Basically, a very shirtless Pivs is staring at his birthday cake, looking all bummed out.)

The birthday boy, no longer content blowing lines off the coffee table with his buddies, sullenly contemplates his own mortality. How did 41 years of age sneak up on him so fast? And what has he spent all this time doing? Still a confirmed bachelor, his greatest life accomplishment thus far is playing a sociopathic Hollywood soul-sucker on a cable TV show. Man, this sucks…"

Hoboes. Illustrated. "About the 700 hoboes project.

In the beginning, there were hoboes. Then, a notable non-historian wrote some lies about them in his wonderful and wholly inaccurate almanac. That man was John Hodgman. The book was The Areas of My Expertise. Amongst the lies was a comprehensive list of notable historical hobo names, numbering 700. After Hodgman read the list into a music flattening device, one Mr. Mark Frauenfelder of the Boing Boing teletyped a suggestion that 700 cartoonists volunteer to draw one hobo each as a public service or for no particular reason. And so it was, more or less, and here they are.

About this website.

In March of 2006, 65 years after the end of the Hobo Wars, several members of the 700 Hoboes project decided to build a new, majestic home for these noble hoboes. Len Peralta quickly came up with a wonderful design for the site. He passed the design on to Dan Coulter who built a back end system using phpFlickr, his open source wrapper for Flickr's API. Also, Adam Koford, Mike Peterson, Ben Rollman, and Eric Vespoor all contributed greatly to the making of this website. Special thanks to John Hodgman for giving us his blessing on this interpretation of his brilliant creation.

Contributing to the Project.

Contributing to the 700 Hoboes project is easy enough. First, you'll need to sign up on the Flickr inter-web site. Then, join the project's Flickr group, upload your artistic interpretation of a hobo from the master list and send it to the group. Be sure to include the hobo's name in the title on Flickr so that it can get automatically added to this site. That's all there is to it. What's keeping you?

At last count, the project had 174 members and 426 illustrations."

AoME :: 700 Hobo Names

Jonathan Ridgman, he of Daily Show and Mac ads fame, has composed a list of 700 hobo names, and then helpfully set that list to music.

WSOP Updates - Spending 'Off Time' in the Mansion | Poker News

Flipping through the cable channels ran across this show with Jen Leo. Weird to see a friend on the tv. I'd always had my money on Cops.

Jen looked great and came across well. Or maybe it was a bad mix of too much Corona and not enough sleep.

Many of us in the media will be attending the Sunday taping as one of our own, Jen Leo, will be playing against five other online qualifiers for $25,000 and a seat in the $1,000,000 Poker Dome Final. Good Luck, Jen." TELEVISION REVIEWS - Playing games with time, space

I'm going to tell you what I'm going to do: I'm going to give this a shot tonight.

(Puts hands on hips)
But only,

(Puts on sunglasses)
Because CSI: Miami is a rerun.

(Cue: "Don't get fooled again.") TELEVISION REVIEWS - Playing games with time, space: "'Life on Mars,' premiering Monday on BBC America, is such a series; it takes its name from a song by that most science-fictional pop star, David Bowie, and it is dark fun, a clever twist on the familiar story of going back in time to reclaim the present. Created by writers associated with the flashy con-man comedy 'Hustle' (playing here on AMC), it concerns a Manchester police detective, Sam Tyler (John Simm), who is hit by a car in 2006 and wakes up — or does he? — in 1973, in a pair of flared trousers and a shirt with a collar wide enough to launch jets from.

It is not, strictly speaking, sci-fi, since everything logically points to Tyler actually being in a coma in 2006, cocooned in 'deep REM sleep from which he cannot wake,' or so he hears in one of the fragments of present-day reality that burst like feedback into his 1973 head. And there is his otherwise unaccountable foreknowledge. (You could have worked out back then that there'd be mobile phones and personal computers coming, but who could have predicted Gary Numan's song 'Cars'?)

But the series uses the usual fish-out-of-water conventions of time travel — the humorous contrasts between then and now (the bad wallpaper, the dial telephones, the sideburns), the attempts to get home — and the writers do their best to keep Tyler's state an open question, at least in his mind. The characters in his 1973 world consider themselves real, and so do we, even as we know he might be making them up. What makes such ambiguity easy to accept, of course, is that none of it's real — it's a TV show, it's all made up.

On one level, 'Life on Mars' can be seen as a witty response to the modern police procedural, with its emphasis on cutting-edge forensic science and impossibly good-looking rainbow casts. Here the detectives are all rumpled white men with bad facial hair and bad teeth, working in a dark, messy, smoky room lorded over by genially thuggish DCI Hunt (the mighty Philip Glenister), for whom 'evidence' means whatever he can plant on a suspect and the phrase 'excessive force' an oxymoron. (Though all in the service of good.) Tyler, who comes from more enlightened times, literally bumps heads with him."

Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity With New 'Intelligent Falling' Theory | The Onion - America's Finest News Source: "Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity With New 'Intelligent Falling' Theory

August 17, 2005 | Issue 41•33

KANSAS CITY, KS—As the debate over the teaching of evolution in public schools continues, a new controversy over the science curriculum arose Monday in this embattled Midwestern state. Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held 'theory of gravity' is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling.

Enlarge ImageEvangelical

Rev. Gabriel Burdett explains Intelligent Falling.

'Things fall not because they are acted upon by some gravitational force, but because a higher intelligence, 'God' if you will, is pushing them down,' said Gabriel Burdett, who holds degrees in education, applied Scripture, and physics from Oral Roberts University.

Burdett added: 'Gravity—which is taught to our children as a law—is founded on great gaps in understanding. The laws predict the mutual force between all bodies of mass, but they cannot explain that force. Isaac Newton himself said, 'I suspect that my theories may all depend upon a force for which philosophers have searched all of nature in vain.' Of course, he is alluding to a higher power.'"

Who blogs? And why? By Jack Shafer

Who blogs? And why? By Jack Shafer: "Who Are All These Bloggers?
And what do they want?
By Jack Shafer
Updated Wednesday, July 19, 2006, at 6:19 PM ET

When I hear the word 'bloggers,' I tend to think of the A-listers. But the top 100 are not the quarry of the Pew Internet & American Life Project telephone survey of bloggers, published today. They're stalking the larger universe of 12 million adult Americans who blog.

Who are all those bloggers? Why do they blog?

The Pew report, written briskly and ably by Amanda Lenhart and Susannah Fox, delivers an array of provocative findings about bloggers. The most immediately startling for me was the repetition of the phrases 'about half ' or 'nearly half' to describe various blogger attributes. About half of all American bloggers are men, says Pew. About half are under the age of 30. About half use a pseudonym. About half say creative self-expression or documenting personal experiences is a major reason for blogging. About half think their audience is folks they already know. Half say changing people's minds is not a major reason behind their blog, and about half had never published before starting their blog. (The margin of error for the telephone survey was plus or minus 7 percentage points.)"

I'm in deep uncharted psychological netherworlds right now. I got about 2 1/2 hours of sleep. Woke up in a pool of sweat, showered and stumbled into work.

Now, my lack of motivation and general sense of apathy and the hopelessness of engagement and effort has led me to just aimlessly wandering around celebrity websites like Which I totally think might possibly be part of a functional sort of apathyism in the same way I think having a nice chardonnay can be brought into the fold, alcoholism-wise.

Where was I? Oh yeah. Bored shitless. And I found a blurb about TV's Pat O'Brien leaving creepy messages about having a threesome on some woman's answering machine. Oh, and he names the woman as Betsy.

And Betsy has a blog.

And I went there, and in my sleep-deprived, serotonin-low, general malaise, almost find myself weeping at how joyous and fulfilling Betsy's life looks.


The sadness of which can only really be realized after looking at Betsy's blog.

Eddie MurphyEddie Murphy and former Spice Girl Mel B are reportedly set to wed in September. The couple - who met at a party in Beverly Hills last month - have reportedly booked the plush Roosevelt Hotel, in Los Angeles, for their 'dream wedding'. Mel, 31, and Murphy - who is 14 years her senior - are reportedly planning to tie the knot in an intimate ceremony attended by just close family and friends.

However, the pair have drawn up a star-studded guest list, which includes Whitney Houston and British actor Max Beesley, for their wedding party. A source told Daily Star newspaper: 'Mel just wants her and Eddie's close family to be there for the simple blessing. But they will be inviting their friends to a lavish wedding breakfast reception at the venue afterwards.'

Both Mel and the Shrek star have been married before. Murphy divorced his wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy - who he has five children with - in May after 12 years of marriage. Mel - better known as Scary Spice during her time in the Spice Girls - married dancer Jimmy Gulzar in 1998 but the couple got divorced three years later. They have a seven-year-old daughter Phoenix-Chi."

Thursday, 01 May 2003
LOS ANGELES: Larry Higgins (34) a real estate agent and self proclaimed CD-Pirate has gone to the unusual step of sending self-imposed reparations to Capitol Records to pay for years of burning CD?s. Rather than sending money to the impoverished multinational , however, Higgins has chosen to make payment in the form of kick arse Colombian cocaine and $500 a night hookers.

?I feel really bad about copying all those songs I downloaded first from Napster, then Audiogalaxy, Morpheas and now Win MX onto CD?s without paying a cent to the artists or record companies that own the music. I hope this high quality charlie accompanied by these very beautiful ladies will go some way towards restoring me to favour in the eyes of the Lord.?

The cocaine and prostitutes were warmly received by the Capitol A and R department. Vice President of Marketing Vince Farrow proceeded to throw a party to thank radio programmers, radio pluggers, personal trainers, hairdressers, publicists, music journalists, and hangers-on for sticking with them through the hard times.

No musicians were invited to the plush event which was held on the rooftop of the Beverly Hills Wiltshire Hotel. "

Court date set for next week
The former Republican candidate for a U.S. Senate seat has frequently appeared in Coors ads urging responsible drinking. In a statement he said: 'I made a mistake by driving myself home after a friend's wedding celebration. I should have planned ahead for a ride.'

He added, 'For years I've advocated the responsible use of our company's products. That's still my message, and our company's message, and it's the right message. I am sorry that I didn't follow it myself.'

Mr. Coors' court date is set for next Thursday.

On its website, Coors says it supports 'more severe consequences' for drunk drivers. 'The processing of drunk drivers should be streamlined and drunk driving must result in an immediate consequence, such as implementing an 'administrative license revocation,'' the 'Doing Our Part' section of Coors' site reads. 'Penalties for drunk driving should be escalated for higher BAC levels and for repeat offenders.' "

The ingredient, psilocybin, increases wellbeing and satisfaction with life two months after being taken, according to the research by scientists at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, which is published online today in the journal Psychopharmacology.

Psilocybin is a plant alkaloid that affects the brain's serotonin system, in particular, the 5-HT2A receptor.

'Under very defined conditions, with careful preparation, you can safely and fairly reliably occasion what's called a primary mystical experience that may lead to positive changes in a person,' study leader Professor Roland Griffiths says."

Letting it all hang out - Los Angeles Times

Marcus and I were talking about bringing back half-shirts for guys. But then we sobered up.

Letting it all hang out - Los Angeles Times: "Letting it all hang out
For many young women, one size fits all – no matter how that makes them look.

THE Sausage Casing Girls are everywhere this summer, their muffin tops hanging over their hip-skimming jeans, clothes shrink-wrapped around fleshy bodies that look as if they've been stuffed — like forcemeat — into teensy tops and skintight pants.

Visit the local mall, any beach boardwalk or the sidewalk in front of your neighborhood high school and you will see why healthcare professionals are so alarmed about expanding waistlines. And while chunky teen boys and young men hide in cartoonishly large basketball jerseys over big T-shirts and elephant-legged shorts, girls generally do not. They may be getting bigger, but their clothes are getting smaller.


One is tempted to applaud the Sausage Casing Girls; after all, Southern California is an epicenter of body consciousness, and here they are thumbing their noses at the idea that they must be whippets or Lindsay Lohans to wear the current styles, which for the last several seasons have been exaggeratedly body-hugging and skin-revealing. Perhaps all that self-esteem building has finally paid off.

But this phenomenon does not appear entirely to be about self-acceptance and the conscious abandonment of repressive physical ideals. It is far more complicated than that. Yes, there are plenty of young women who can confidently say that they are happy with their less-than-svelte shapes — and that is to be applauded. But there are many others who in the rush to be fashionable are unable to admit that they are larger than they wish to be, or that their bodies just don't look good in the clothes they are choosing. Instead of reveling in their big, beautiful bodies, many girls instead are deep in denial, pouring themselves into clothes that are putting them in a python squeeze. "
