And then in the summertime such extreme summertime about a hundred and fifty degrees hotter than just some months ago, than just some months from now,

with fireweed blooming along the frost heaves and merciless rivers that are rushing and carving and reminding us that here, Mother Nature wins.

UPDATE:
Well, it looks like the NBC people put the kibosh on that - don't worry, it wasn't THAT funny - so check this out, from whay youtube says is a 'related video':

Beef

(promoted from the comments)
[T]here's a rapumetary called Beef that's running on cable tv's Fuse channel. It presents the 411 on various disagreements between hip-hop artists. In the 'N.W.A vs. Ice Cube' segment, Ice Cube prevails, delivering the death blow w/ "No Vaseline", which is arguably the greatest musical composition of all time. As a communicative piece, the song's message ("Y'all niggas can't fuck wit Ice Cube") affected to a real-world reality, unlike, say "We Are the World" or "Give Peace a Chance".
The show also features a nifty editing trick to take care of interviewee's profanity without resorting to bleeping out every motherkcufing 4-letter word.

N.W.A - with no period after the A - is the correct way to write it, according to the group's very own logo, also.

Hello Big Willy

or "Whatchoo Talkin' About Willis?"

It's official. The Sears Tower is no more. I for one won't shed a tear and apparently neither will Da Mayor, who had this to say about it:

"There has to be change in government and business and you have to realize that change is good."

We'll remember that on election day, Dickie. Can't wait!

We endorse the Free Rom the Spaceknight! Petition to Hasbro, Inc..

To: Hasbro, Inc.

This is a petition to encourage Hasbro to release their copyright of "Rom the Spaceknight" to Marvel Comics. Given that after the initial failed run of the Rom toyline, Hasbro has shown no interest in reviving the character and therefore has no monetary incentive of keeping the copyright, and that Rom has become a fan favorite of Marvel Comics readers, Hasbro should sell (or give) the copyright to Marvel, so that the character may return to comics and reprints of material featuring Rom may be sold.

Sincerely,

Your name here!


Click here to sign the petition.

Hold on to your asses! The Neo-Mofo Revial of 2009 is here

I suppose it was inevitable that Primus-style funk rock would come back into fashion, but no one could have predicted that Jandek would be the first one on the bus.

These are truly weird times we're living in.

"Bird Collision" by Chicago's Soft Targets

This song just came up on my random mp3 player thing, and I thought it was a Cheap Trick deep cut at first! Good song!
