White House Correspondents Dinner with Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert is the bravest man in the world. I watched the White House Correspondents Dinner and He was Frickin ON . I felt sort of uncomfortable like some secret service guy was going to shoot him at any moment. Man I think most of the old cronies in the audience were scared too most of them weren't even laughing. Well, maybe they didn't know it was satire they are pretty dense in Washington. Link to the torrent below it is well worth the download.

Was there a whiff of blood in the books?

This weekend I attended our local library's book sale . It is an annual event concluding with "Bag Day". On this day shoppers can get all the books, records, CDs etc they can cram into a relatively large bag for 2 dollars . Sounded like a great idea to me . Well, I arrived a little before 10 thinking I was a little late and to my surprise I was met by quite line of people waiting to get in as it didn't start until 10. Man these people were really hungry for literature, or was it just the thought of a bargain. Well. It was definitely the latter .It was like a bunch of starved sharks attacking a school of book shaped fish. I was really only interested in digging for some records so I was away from most of the fray. These people were shoving each other to pack their bags full of books that they didn't even know the titles of , they were just jamming them in the bags. The romance area was especially volatile anyone unlucky enough to be crouching to look at the history books in the next aisle was sure to be trampled. I overheard a lady telling her 6 or 7 year old son to push his way past someone or he wasn't going to get anything. Another lady told the woman he was trying to be polite. To this she responded "well he isn't going to get anything that way" . I walked over to see if there was anything interesting in the science area and was jostled quite rudely by a woman with two bags crammed full of random fiction one on her way to the kids section. The thing is there wasn't even anything really interesting on the first day much less on "Bag Day" it was really just a sad sight. I wonder what sort of frenzy you could whip up if the things on sale were really even worth having. I mean these are the books no one even wanted to read in the first place.

Ok I am a skeptic I need the scientific method or at least some kind of tangible proof or at least some kind of evidence to believe anything .That said , David Blaine is fucking magic! For real and I only saw him on TV. He fricking Levitates , He has some random person do the pick a card thing and then shuffle the deck and then he throws the deck at a restaurant window and then the card is stuck to the inside of the window facing out. Explain that well can you I didn't think so . Then the just telling people what card they are thinking of and then the have person think of someone and then write their name on a piece of paper then set the paper on fire and rub the ashes on his arm and then their name is on his arm in ashes what is that ,I will tell you ....Magic.

The apple has rotted

It seems that with huge monetary success corporate greed and fear even the most admired will turn to the dark side. It appears that bite out of the apple has turned brown and spread the rot to the whole apple. They seem to have lost all sense . The info presented by Apple Insider and PowerPage only provided free buzz for the company. It is true that apple seeds contain cyanide and if you consumed enough you would be poisoned.

Daylight Stupid Time

Today is the first day of daylight savings time. WhenI say fiest I mean First in my lifetime . I live in Indiana and up until now we were a proud state the understood nature and could tell that sometimes the sun comes up earlier and sets later. That was until the moronic voting population of our state ,rather than investigating the potential govenor's credentials and history , were swayed by big green signs and catchy catchphrases. Mitch Daniels decides to push daylightsavings time and our representatives who dont seem to represent anyone failed to stop it. So now we are just like everyone else and that sucks.
