i want you so bad

I don’t know how to deal. Jesus, here we are at camp and there are no spitoons in this fucking spitoon. Yeah brah! Supercool! You pnched me in the face two or three times, it was a bobblehead moment, please don’t hit me any more. That was a joke, come on. On my blog. Liveblog. Drunk ok, bye.




From Geek Tyrant comes the news that Sam Mendes (of American Beauty fame) will be directing a new movie based on Preacher, which is one of the most twisted and awesome comic book series I have ever read. This has got me all fluttered and twitterpated, are you ladies as wet as I am?



Game 5 Liveblogging

Well the Obamarama finished, now it’s time for baseball!

It’s bottom of the 6th because that northeaster destroyed the end.

The Phils managed to score somehow, and now lead 3-2.

Howard pops out to end after a great job baserunning. It’s ad time baby.

ESPN China has some ads about UEFA, that shits pretty interesting. Anyone want to go see the Red Bulls?

Top 7 – Ryan Madson on to pitch, 1.50 ERA in the postseason. That’s pretty good. Whenever I see an anomalous stat though, I always wonder if they are due for a correction.

Navarro goes down on strikes, I guess that 1.50 ERA might not be an anomaly.

Homer! Baldelli hits it over the fence. It was due. 3-3 game.

Base hit. Rays pitcher Howell is up with one on. God that was a bad bunt attempt. Well he got the job done. Runner moves to second. Pitcher change.

Damn fine play at home by the second baseman. Heads up play not throwing to first with the runner from second trying to score. We go to the bottom side.



Eric Fensler

Eric Fensler (of GI Joe PSA and TRS-80 fame) teamed up with the Eric of Tim and Eric to make an amazing music video. There’s also another music video that Tim/Eric’s Eric did for a group called The Bird and The Bee (they did that song Again & Again that I popular on college radio) that’s on that page. I had never thought about how Tim/Eric and Fensler share an aesthetic, but I guess they are both really into paying homage/parodying retro lo-fi.

Perusing FenslerFilm’s YouTube, I came across a music video E. Fensler did for a guy named Ariel Pink, who seems to be playing the musical equivalent to this retro lo-fi style. The first song I heard, “Politely Declined“, made me turn down my speakers because of the extreme overdriven, overdubbed cassette tape sound. It’s a fun song, but I don’t know if I could listen to it on a regular basis. “Are you looking after my boys” is the next song I heard, video also directed by FenslerFilm. It’s pretty interesting in that both the music and video sound like they have been recorded and rerecorded onto a VHS.

I just read the news page for Fensler, and I guess he is a writer for Tim & Eric Awesome Show, so I guess it makes sense that they all share an aesthetic. He apparently also did a Sealab 2021 episode that never aired, but it’s on the Sealab Season 3 DVD. I’d like to see that.



Drama! Intrigue! Scandal!

So there is a shitload of drama surrounding Bristol Palin’s pregnancy. Specifically, is this actually her second time being pregnant, and is “Twig,” VPILF’s supposed fifth child, actually Bristol’s child. The Philly Daily News breaks it down:

This is my favorite part, it’s the “what if they aren’t lying” scenario:

In April, reportedly 36 weeks pregnant, Palin flew to Dallas to give a speech. Before the speech, she began to leak amniotic fluid. Tough Alaska moose-hunter that she is, she gave the speech anyway. She called her family doctor, who is not an OB-GYN, who allegedly told her it would be OK to fly back to Alaska. For the record, there are hospitals in Dallas.

Having given up the governor’s private plane, Palin flew commercial, not telling Alaska Airlines that she was in labor and that her water had broken. No airline personnel seemed to note her as a woman about to give birth.

Her looooong Dallas to Alaska flight had a stopover in Seattle. There are also hospitals there.

So Palin finally arrived in Anchorage, where the airport (ironically named after Alaska Sen. Ted “Bridge to Nowhere” Stevens) is six miles from possibly the best medical facility in the state, Providence Hospital. Providence is one of two hospitals in Anchorage that has a NICU unit, which could come in handy for a 40-plus woman, just off a long flight, about to give birth to a premature baby with Down syndrome.

Palin, however, drove (or was driven) approximately an hour to the much smaller Mat-Su Regional Hospital in Palmer, Alaska, which does not seem to have a NICU unit.
