These are a few of my favorite things

Thing 1) the "Post a video to keep the blog from dying" gambit.

Thing 2) Seizure-inducing videos and crazy animation

Thing 3) Frank Zappa

As you may have guessed by now, here are all three (the wacky animation bit starts about the 2:35 minute mark):

So tempting

Wait, no, not "tempting" that other thing that's the opposite of that.

I mean it's true that they give you a "side of the news that you just can't find anywhere else" -- the greasy, racist, Cheeto®-stained, basement-dwelling side is just so, so unrepresented in print these days. Oooh, ooh, they have "unsurpassed book and movie reviews" too! I do so wish I could stay up-to-date with the latest in shitty right-wing "entertainment" gossip.

Alas, I think I'll have to pass.

Friday not-so-funnies

Via the Web of Evil we find a really delightful set of super inspiring photos taken on 9/11/2001. A couple of them even had speech/thought bubbles!

Oh, wait, no -- I added those.

You know what's missing from all those photos? A single tear. A sign of any emotion other than cold, calculating strategery.

Also, there are exactly two pictures of chief counter-terrorism adviser on the National Security Council, Richard Clarke -- one of which you see here. There are a few more of Prez Shrub, but not a ton. Plenty of pics of the "advisors/speechifiers" though, which were the important folk, natch. Cheney was clearly the main main in charge (as if we didn't know that already). These photos are a really interesting/disturbing look into the behind-the-scenes of that day.

In case you didn't know you needed these, there are many, many more here. Many/most of them are horribly, terribly, awful. You're welcome.

Tardy Tuesday

I was camping in the middle of nowhere and completely off the grid over the long weekend, so a belated happy Independence Day to all.

Here, have a picture. I hear that's worth a large number of words:
