Guess who’s back? Tell a friend, tell a friend, tell a friend


It’s the return of the giant link-list email newsletter thing, now consolidated into a blog post for yourmy convenience. Would anyone be interested in an occasional mix-CD?

Bacon. A food so delicious that the bible forbids it. Sin with me: bacon cupcakes, Mike Nelson of Mystery Science Theater 3000 commits suicide by bacon, bacon explosion, get that bacon out of your teeth with bacon floss, chocolate bacon and the coup de bacon, candied bacon ice cream

File under “and people say I’m hard to shop for”: happy vagina t-shirts, aquarium toilet, check out the speakers on her, vagina perfume

File under “like goldy, but with iron”: Catholic church needs to read the bible more, apparently

Questions are a burden to others, answers a prison for oneself:

Science! It works, bitches! : Tattoo changes color with glucose levels.

Rob wants to give you a high five!

So…about that salmonella peanut butter: bird shit.

fuck you for shitting on the constitution you fucking fuck:

actually kind of catchy

not what you think:×768/dreamclubSq1024.jpg

minotaur having a breakdown in a public bathroom: very creepy and yet full of pathos. Also, hey, Einsturzende Neubaten that has melody, instead of dudes hitting shopping carts with rebar.

Some friends of mine recently won an award for a film they put together for MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art, for you philistines). See the very short film at

An idea whose time has come: Wiki Cookbooks admittedly, not as good as abuelita’s cooking, but hey, something’s better than nothing.

I know it makes me a bad person, but I can’t help but laugh at

…and the moral of the story is: don’t get bare with bears with beer.

if you’re any kind of artist or creative person, you should see the potential in this:

Here is a picture of a tiger feeding piglets. I am attaching it specifically for Silvia, because I said I would. I don’t remember why, but well, there it is.

I don’t know, but it looks freaky:

make your own non-newtownian fluid:
…wait, you don’t know what a non-newtownian fluid is? see or or creepiest of all:

origami for asthmatic kids:

You may have seen it already, but god, it just hurts to watch someone be this stupid in public: “Well I believe that US Americans can’t, um, do that, find America on a map, because, I believe, some people don’t have maps, and, our education, like South Africa – and countries in Asia – we should help them. South Africa and those Asian countries, we should help educate them.” — Miss Teen USA 2007, South Carolina

so, latest email thing


Seriously, HOLY FUCKING SHIT: Man, I don’t know if the google dorks are geniuses or psychos, but that’s firmly in both lands. Check out the South Beach one. A geek-news site has discussion on the privacy aspects of it:

So THAT’s what I’ve been doing wrong:

Laugh, it’s good for you:

Clothing. Made of condoms.

Politically, I’m not so much FOR the democratic party as I am AGAINST the republican party. In that spirit, please read Matt Taibi’s latest article, which is a FUCK YOU to both democratic and republican parties:

Jesus Christ Supershark:

I am a prankster. I appreciate the art behind it. I have to rein that in though, because I tend to just go straight for OH MY FUCKING GOD levels of revenge. But let’s witness someone else’s prank: ah, butter on the floor. a true classic. simple and cheap.

Who knows, this shit might come in handy one day:

I am seriously considering going to Wisconsin JUST to see this:

Hey, yeah, memorial day, right: Personally, my old man was in Vietnam, and he threatened to lock me in a loony bin if I ever joined the Armed Forces. Hey, who am I to disagree?

TETRIS ice cubes:

Make your own Pinocchio:

Pictures on your wrist:

Hey, that’s a neat sculpture:

Wow, chili sauce:


And to finish, first an explanation of LOLCAT from the venerable WikiPedia:
and now that you know what LOLCAT is, please to be enjoying the LOLCAT site du jour:

15 reasons Mr Rogers rocked:


hey, don’t get lost:

morons humping furniture, a spider that LOVES HEAVY METAL and horses that smoke and drink.


I started a new job. Which is cool. So I have a new phone, but my phone number is the same. Except my voicemail’s a bit FUBAR’d at the moment. So if you call and you get someone else’s voice asking you to leave a message…don’t worry about it, it’s still my phone. Also, I can’t check my voicemail, so uh….I’ll call you back. Or you can email me, I’m usually pretty good about answering my email.

Jesus WEPT: …I cannot explain this, except to say that clearly these kids have perhaps had sex described to them and this is how their sad, broken minds were able to understand it. They’ve obvously never actually had sex. Or talked to women. Please watch it until the end so that you can see the end credits. I’m not kidding about that either.

Epic: woman gives birth to two girls of different colors:

title says it all:

The use of the word boner to mean “mistake” isn’t very common anymore, which totally makes this hysterical:

David Bowie has the best birthday parties — to wit: Bjork playing live at his birthday party. Backed by a harp. With a choir. And a guy shuffling cards providing rhythm.

I mentioned Kurt Vonnegut’s passing and was asked why he was so great. I give you proof:

Hey, Dave, enough with the seriousness, give us lighthearted and cheerful news, right? I’ll give you a teaser:

“Republicans, and their right-wing Democrat fellow travelers, have been telling
us since even before Reagan that we need to eliminate expensive and “wasteful”
regulations that are crippling our businesses’ productivity, that if we
deregulated our industries back to where they were before the Progressive Era,
they’d be making enough money to be able to afford more people. That, my
friends, is a total load of crap. And if you want a really vivid example of why
those regulations were all put in place, then I suggest that you hop a flight
down to Panama, and other places in the world, and start helping the families
down there count the bodies that died from one shipment of tainted merchandise
from China. They’ve already passed the 100 mark, and have all but given up on
finding all of them. And while you’re helping them tally up all of the dead
children, consider this: it is only by insanely good luck that a couple of dozen
or a couple of hundred of those dead kids weren’t here in the US. What, you
thought that poison showing up in adulterated products mis-labeled as food was
limited to coal byproducts in animal feed? You wish. It also turns out that
around the same time, China was allowing chemical companies to mislabel ethylene
glycol as better-than-food-grade 99.5% pure glycerin. That glycerin was sold to
manufacturers of cough syrup in the US and Latin America. In America, one
chemist at the buyer had an odd feeling about the glycerin they’d just bought
and decided, with no law making him do so and no management order to do so, to
double-check the purity. That he found that it was just as pure as it said, but
pure poison not pure medical-grade glycerin, is the only reason we didn’t have
as many dead kids as we now have dead pets.”

a classic:

spider bites give erections: (also, the spider is totally throwing up the horns. it’s a totally FUCKIN’ METAL SPIDER)

you shouldn’t go crazy just cos someone says you’re going to die:

the best children’s book ever: no, i’m not fucking with you, that really IS a REAL book: Hmmm…I have friends who just had kids, I wonder if that would make a good gift.

wanna play a game?

If you know who Phillip K. Dick is, you might be interested in: (if you don’t know who PKD is, fix that.)

grindhouse (excellent movie, btw,) is not just a title of a movie, but a style unto itself. like say, gonzo journalism, but about horror and shock etc. So check out movie posters for movies you know and love but done grindhouse style:

hey, speaking of gore:;_ylt=Ala1lKvugwgqSODmZxVjIeAEtbAF

and perhaps not unrelated, there’s a pill that’s gonna make periods go away for ever:

I’m bored and it’s been at least a week since I’ve mailed most of you, so you get a generic mail that is bound to entertain you at least as long as it takes you to hit delete.

The subject is a quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s “Goodbye Mr Rosewater”. Vonnegut died this week and if you’re not familiar with his writing, your life is sadder for it. You’ve seen back to school, the Rodney Dangerfield 80’s piece of shit movie? Remember when he hires a guy to write a term paper about Kurt Vonnegut and the professor says “whoever wrote this paper doesn’t know anything about Kurt Vonnegut” ? The dude who Dangerfield hires to write the paper — that’s Kurt Vonnegut.

So last week I spoke to my lawyer/guitarist friend and it turns out that he and his wife are so freaked out about pet food killing their dogs that she’s taken to cooking food for them and giving him dogfood. I’ll miss you bro — can I have your guitars? Turns out that making your own pet food is perhaps not that hard:

I found that last link at the ever-“oh-neat!”-inducing site,

Incredibly funny and horrifying at the same time: it’s not true, it’s satire damn it. i know someone that I’ll email this to will need that explained.)

i grabbed my head and we fell into it like a daydream or a fever


I hurt my back so I’m bored. Which means you get an email full of weird stuff.

ok, so you may or may not have seen michel gondry’s “the science of sleep” (i haven’t, but i hear it’s good. i recommend the “director’s series” compilation DVD though.) but he’s done a bunch of music videos that are really bizarre and imaginative (bjork, beck, etc — to give you a taste, here’s a Cibo Matto vid: ). the man’s a visual poet of very high caliber, just take my word for it. but that’s not why i bring Michel Gondry up. I bring him up for cheap comedy; to wit:

see michel gondry solve a rubik’s cube with his feet:

ok, but where’s the art in that? here’s how he did it:

and then again, here’s michel gondry solving a rubik’s cube WITH HIS NOSE:

really really great for decorating an office: a picture, tell it how many pages wide and viola, printable poster)
