Bobby Flay

I just got some email from a wanker (for lack of a better term) complaining that some of the posts where we linked other posts to Bobby Flay had broken links (and apparently he's too lazy to use the search engine). He ended the email with, "At least he can keep his restaurants open." He posed as an anti-flay but I think he's really a Flayniac in disguise. Anyway, to satisfy this guy and the countless others who'd like to relive Flay's appearance on Iron Chef (and no, the fact that I'm posting this doesn't turn this into a Bobby Flay blog, you idiot Flay lovers), I'll post a list of our great, humorous Flay rants, found easily by searching for "Flay."

Might I also add that I think the point is moot because the Food Network seems pretty sick of Bobby too. I noticed he was absent from this year's holiday celebration and I don't see his show quite as often as I used to. He also used to be on a lot more commercials than he is today. Thanks Food Network!

Have fun!

The Pee-Pee Teepee

A pee-pee teepee just in time for Christmas! Now I've seen everything. It's made for babies, but I can see it making anyone's holiday...uh, bright:

Uncommon Goods (for sure)

Music Rant

Most people who know me know that I'm a big Christmas music fan. I buy more Christmas albums than any other kind (I've been looking for the BNL one, didn't KLyn say they had one?). I don't mean Kazaa them, I mean I have a 100 slot CD thingy with actual albums. Yes, I'm psychotic. I realize the irony. I'm not Christian. I don't really care about Mary and Jesus, but I love Christmas music. Mostly I don't like the overly religious stuff, although "Silent Night" is one of my faves. "Little Drummer Boy" is good & "Do You Hear What I Hear?"....ok, so I do like the religious ones. So sue me, ok?! I mostly just like to listen to the different "covers" of them. It's cool to hear Bon Jovi belting out a Christmas tune. It me.

This brings me to my rant. I think the song, "The Christmas Shoes" should be banned from the air waves. That's the most depressing, sucky Christmas song ever. It's about a kid who wants to buy his mom some shoes for Christmas but he can't afford them and the cashier is an ass to him but then he says, "I just wanted mom to be pretty when she meets Jesus tonight." or something like that. Then the cashier gives him the shoes (hmm, wonder if that'd work for an iPod {g}). I just think it's the saddest song ever.

One of the local stations has started a 24/7 Christmas music thing and I was listening it today. They played "Jingle Bell Rock" and then "Rudolph" and then "I want momma to be pretty when she meets Jesus tonight." WTF? Make people all happy and upbeat and then make them die because they're crying so hard they barrel into a snow bank? You jerks. (Yes, I know, barreling into a snow bank in Arkansas would be a Christmas miracle. That's not the point of the rant). I don't know. I just think if people wanted to hear all that, they'd just watch the sappy Hallmark movie based on the song.

Here's another related rant. My mom is a country music fan. Since the song, "Whiskey Lullaby" (basically about a double suicide) they've been releasing way to many suicide songs. I mean, I turn on the radio in the car and George Strait (or someone...Tim McGraw? I don't know, some redneck in a cowboy hat I'm sure) was singing about shooting himself and how depressing life is. I know, most country music is about depressing lives, but most is just about drinking and being miserable and such. I think, at the very least, I don't need to hear about how much my life sucks and how it'd all be better if I blew my head off from my radio when I'm driving a heavy piece of machinery in traffic. I'd much rather hear Shania Twain sing about how she wants to feel like woman (and god, I never thought I'd ever say I *wanted* to hear Shania Twain).

Farewell, Friend

Goodbye, my feline friend.
It's been a great 14 years.
You were a spirited fighter, but it was time.
I'll miss you... always.

August 1990 - Nov 11, 2004.

What's next?

Ok, I'm obviously very upset about the results of this election.
I could rant for quite a long time about it, but that's not going to change anything. The President was re-elected, so what can be done?

Make sure you keep yourself informed; get as much news as you can from as many different sources as possible.

Then you need to tell people about it. Seriously. Show articles to people. Get a real debate going. Perhaps volunteer / lobby for a certain cause. Anything.

That's one thing I should do more of here, and will try to: Link to articles, etc. I'm not sure of the readership of this site (numbers wise) but it helps spread the word and at least makes me a more informed citizen.

One of the best pieces of advice I've seen today is WRITE YOUR REPRESENTATIVES. Even if they're not the ones you chose, enough feedback might get them to reconsider their positions.
They cannot enact the will of the people unless they actually know what the people are thinking.

There's a republican majority now, and that could work out great. Who knows? Bush may surprise in the second term, get lots of useful legislation passed, correct some issues I currently have with him, etc. I certainly hope so. The majority could enable him to continue to do shady things -- and that's what I hope everybody, regardless of party, keeps an eye out for.

DMCA, Patriot Act, banning of SSM, etc... rights are slowly being taken away, and it's a slippery slope.

This concludes our broadcast day. *Click*.

Me too (Indecision 2004)

Well, LadyX might not feel like she needs to say more, but I do. I just watched Kerry's speech. This morning, as I was leaving for school I heard them say that he was going to wait until Ohio got counted. That would have taken weeks and it seemed pointless to me. In glad he agree to concede. I agree with what he said about unifying the country too. I think that's important. I think admitting he lost (he didn't even win the popular vote, unlike Gore) was a good first step.

Am I glad that Bush won? Hell no. I think he won based on dividing us. He won based on scaring America and Americans. I can't believe we're all so stupid that the majority of us feel safer than before 9/11! The hell? We only feel safer because Bush made us feel more afraid and then says, "but I'm here! I'll protect you." All Bush tells us is to be afraid. All he has done is play on our fears, tell us that everyone is a terrorist and we should be on the look out, make up stupid laws and display stupid color codes on our TV sets that don't really mean anything and don't really serve a purpose but to make us duct tape ourselves into rooms and pray to god we don't die. This is exactly the same technique that Osama Bin Laden, Hitler and Stalin all use/d. They make us fear our neighbors and make us feel unsafe in our homes and then the only person we can trust is the "leader." Now, people feel safer with Big Bad Bush keeping away the "Evil Doers." Afterall, we haven't had any more terrorist attacks on our homeland (let's not mention we hadn't for years before Bush). Big Bad Bush will save us all. Uh huh. I know more countries hate us now than ever before. I know America hates America now than ever before. We are a country divided and it just gets worse. I hope Bush is right and we'll stop all the fear mongering and talking about "Evil" and the "if you're not with us you're against us" load of bull. This isn't a John Wayne movie. I don't want a cowboy running one of the most powerful countries in the world. I just hope that since he has nothing left to prove, more or less, he takes it down a few notches. I hate him using our division against us, like he has for the past 3 years. Imagine if Kennedy had done that. People are scared enough without it.

Also, I want to comment on all the moronic states who voted to "preserve marriage" last night, mine included. Ok, fine. You don't want gays to get married and ruin the "sanctity" of it. I could see that, almost, if you morons respected it yourself. It's not a "sanctified" state. While you're voting to preserve it to "one man, one woman" why not do something about the idiots who get married because they're pregnant, they're stupid, they want money, they think it'd be fun, etc. and only stay married a year (or even months, look at Britney Spears) and make a mockery of the whole thing. To me, a homosexual couple who is in love and stays together for the rest of their lives is more "sanctified" than Britney Spears. Heck, I could marry my dog and be more "sanctified" than she is. Make some laws about that kind of disrespect if you want to keep marriage sacred. Until then, I'm off to find a chick to marry just to piss you off. If you're going to continue to let Britney Spears and J-Lo get married every other week, I think gays should get married too.

So, God Bless America, we're going to need it. I don't think Kerry was the answer (to be honest, I would fear for the troops if Kerry took over...don't change horsemen in the middle of an apocalypse and all). I know Bush isn't. AMERICA needs the overhaul. Maybe this election was enough to do it. Don't be afraid. As a GREAT president once said in our time of need, the only thing to fear is fear itself. I wish Bush was more like that, but wishes are like assholes, everybody's got one.

I am unbelievably disgusted and ashamed. I don't think I need to say anything else.
