The network is turning down the president’s request to show his prime-time news conference on Wednesday. The news conference marks Obama’s 100th day in office. Instead of the president, Fox viewers will see an episode of the Tim Roth drama “Lie to Me.”

Let us take a trip down memory lane when books were books and the female of the species was well and truly respected on their pages. Hardly, but trash was trash and you have to respect it for that. Brazen women abounded and the front covers of these novels helped draw attention to the, er, social issues that were contained within. It is almost shameful to think of the trash produced these days when, to be honest, they did it far, far better in the way back when.
othing can bring utter insanity to the lives of otherwise reasonable people like a nasty divorce. People in that situation suddenly find within themselves untapped wells of pettiness and crazy, leading to the kind immature behavior that would embarrass the average 10-year-old.
How bizarre do these cases get? Well...
Danelle Eckert, the mother of Colin Byars, a 24-year-old teacher who died after being punched in the head, is being harassed by Colin's former landlord, who wants to impose an "early termination" fee on her because her son died before his lease ran out.
Oh. My. God. His rendition of Hallelujah is so incredible, it's beyond words. I'd also suggest listening to 'The Future', a song he did for the soundtrack of Natural Born Killers. Beautiful, beautiful.
Checking out Digg, Reddit, and various newsites this morning, the talk of the town seems to be the epic 'Swine Virus' that's supposedly killed thousands in Mexico. Not only that; the virus seems to have spread to America with cases confirmed and a relatively small casualty count thus far, but even places as far off as New Zealand are reporting cases. As a huge Stephen King fan, I can't help but think of the 'Captain Tripps' virus from his epic, awesome book The Stand.
So, could it be? A massive virus that will wipe out a huge part of the population of not just our country, but all countries? And what could it mean, besides the tragedy and loss that those who remain alive will feel? Could this, awful as it sounds, be the cure for all of the issues stemming from overpopulation? Not enough jobs, not enough food, not enough everything for everyone. If there was a massive die-off, say, 50%, wouldn't that all go away? I know it's a terrible, horrible thing to say, but nobody else seems to be saying it anywhere else. Nor does anyone seem to suggest that this flu, like the flu from The Stand, could have been something manufactured. Perhaps to remedy the damage done by man on a daily basis. Could the world band together if we faced a common enemy such as this? Would Palastinians and Israelies stop fighting and start worrying about trying to keep as much of their history and population alive until this ravaging, mega-flu ends?
Also, didn't this all happen a few years ago with the bird flu? The panic, the dozens of articles and theorizing?

That guy who did the remixes of the news that I posted last night is the Michael guy who claimed in a video I posted two or three posts ago that some band claiming that Coldplay stole Viva la Whatever from them actually stole it from him. More think the video he released is a hoax. It doesn't even matter. Why? Because check out this video I found of him. He's @#%@# awesome no matter how you cut it.
While I was searching through the Ryans, I discovered that there exist 20 different standard shots that guys use for their Facebook picture. It’s like guys got together and agreed that these 20 poses will make them look good without trying to hard because that would be gay dude. The best part is that most of them are a hilariously horrible call. Let’s do a little study, shall we? I present to you, The 20 Male Poses of Facebook!
This is amazing but I don’t really believe it. They say that this is her performing on the TODAY show and that this audio feed is actually what is being fed through the mic before going through some board that adjusts her pitch or some shit. I mean I’m not a record producer and it seems like it’d be possible. I am an asshole though and think this is hysterical. I watched it four times, it’s like someone clowning on singing, you know so bad you’d expect it to be coming out of a crazy person who just drank daino and is roaming the streets beeping at random people…it is so bad that it is fucking amazing…AMAZING.
The story line, for many, is the same - gold (or silver or copper) is found and a rough-and-tumble mining camp suddenly becomes a boomtown, replete with stores and laundries, saloons and houses of ill repute. Once the mines are played out, the town goes belly up. Miners, and all the townsfolk who depended on them, hightail it to the next strike, taking what they can, leaving behind what they can't.

The strangest monument in America looms over a barren knoll in northeastern Georgia. Five massive slabs of polished granite rise out of the earth in a star pattern. The rocks are each 16 feet tall, with four of them weighing more than 20 tons apiece. Together they support a 25,000-pound capstone. Approaching the edifice, it's hard not to think immediately of England's Stonehenge or possibly the ominous monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Built in 1980, these pale gray rocks are quietly awaiting the end of the world as we know it.

Another post that I'm basically going to lift in it's entirety from Mefi, but with credit. To be honest with you, I'm completely, absolutely, 100% in the pits tonight and I don't feel like blogging at all. If it wasn't for all the new audience I imagine I have from some pretty successful posts over the past few days, I wouldn't be bothering. This is definitely cool and worth your attention though. Ahem.
I am a huuuuuuge Gorillaz fan and have been ever since I watched their Demon Days Live concert under just the right influence (you know, aspirin, diet soda, and pancakes). Anyways, I absolutely love their blend of every genre in the whole dang world, creating something new and exciting. Damon Albarn is a prolific genius. It's hard to think of him as the guy who got famous from screaming "WOO HOO!"
Police years ago pulled over a young woman who rushed through an amber traffic light. "I'm about to arrest this person right now," the irritated officer radioed to a dispatcher. "She's telling me her name is Marijuana Pepsi Jackson."
It's the truth. Marijuana and Pepsi are her legal first and middle names, and the Beloit woman embraces them as a symbol of her struggle to succeed and to help other children overcome obstacles.
No Mary or Mary Jane or Mary Wanda for her. It's Marijuana, thank you, she's told bosses, co-workers and friends over the years, and even wore it on nametags at work.
