Crisis usually defines Lebanon, but these days, the country is navigating threats that many describe in existential terms, including a battle entering the third week between the Lebanese army and al-Qaeda-inspired fighters. Below are pictures of a Palestinian refugee camp in the midst of the carnage:
Aw yah baby, 40 years to this day humanity took another wonderful step in the name of progress — the Israeli occupation of Palestine! Since then it’s been a lot of good times: dead children, suicide bombing, and indiscriminate attacks against civilian targets by the worlds most sophisticated military. And of course, don’t forget the help of good ol’ Uncle Sam, who personally lives off of the blood of dead brown people (and if you thought it was oil, you’re wrong! oil is actually used by Uncle Sam to lather up his penis before fucking the lower class and the third world)! We can only hope the next 40 are as happy and fun as the last 40:
I’ll be live blogging Ron Paul on the Daily Show tonight. The phenomena continues…..
11:04 – Wolf Blitzer is a troll. And he used to work for AIPAC and wrote a book about how Jonathan Pollard was falsely convicted.
11:05 – Chris Dodd, who made you? Only Joe Lieberman’s existence could make you look worthwhile.
11:08 – Ha! Joe Biden. I think I get the joke…
11:09 – Oh boy! Commercial break! Time to refuel on Triscuits and put a fresh layer of Gold Bond on my testicles / grundle!
11:11 – And we’re back! And we’re talking about porn! yessssssss
11:13 – Boring, boring! This Larry Flynt skit is going on way too long.
11:14 – It’s really difficult to maintain an erection with Flynt’s toad-faced mug on half of my HD TV.
11:18 – Apparently I want popeyes! And so does that jitterbugging black male (do you think he likes… rap???)
11:19 – Please Welcome Congressman Ron Paul! Where is Guiliani’s corpse?
11:20 – No spreading democracy with guns. No foreign interventionism! Clap clap clap NYC claps clap claps.
11:21 – What’s the constitution? Apparently Ron Paul wants to use it. Disgusting.
11:22 – Third parties? Grossssssssss.
11:23 – Ut oh, Libertarian… principles… coming out… how will liberals react… no!!!!!
11:24 – Agh, Christ. Competition, free market, boring boring. Get to the good stuff!
11:25 – Romney said hello to Ron Paul once. Here come some zingers for Ron Paul. Start with Giul’s…. hahaha. He should marry terrorism, if 9/11 and abortion weren’t already his mid-wives!!
11:25 – Well, that was fucking anti-climatic. Paul just rushed off the stage afterwards to Stewart saying “Don’t leave!”. What???
11:27 – Yessssss, commercials! Shit, and I’m not even kidding now.
11:28 – Apple iPhone commercial. Conspicuous consumerism, here I come!
11:30 – I want you to raise your hand if English should be the official language of the United States. The only hand I see is Senator Gravel.
Summation: I can only imagine that hundreds of Reddit and Digg users are left flacid after that appearance. Pretty mediocre. Couldn’t we have just talked about how much we all hate Rudy and Iraq instead of talking about Libertarian principles? Apparently not, but he’ll have a few minutes at the Republican Debate tomorrow night to say something worthwhile, as long as Rudy doesn’t strangle him.
Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse:
This is the first single off of their newest album, Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?, on which Of Montreal continues their exploration of dance music, a trend begun with their 2004 release Satanic Panic in the Attic. Here is the single from that CD:

Aldhils Arboretum was released in 2002, just before Satanic Panic and showcased their older, 60s-esque sound.
Old People in the Cemetery:
Of Montreal puts on a great performance, and generally does some fantastic covers.
Crazy (Gnarls Barkley):
Fuck the Pain Away (Peaches):
