OK. So, she might not be a hillbilly, but it's undeniably hot!

Steaming Manhole in NYC



Yeah, that headline got my attention too... But it's not from the Village Voice personals, it's actually part of an ad campaign for Folgers by Saatchi and Saatchi. [Oh La La]

Follow The Money

Yes, this is a vast oversimplification of a complex political and economic issue. However, when Republicans say liberals and environmentalists are to blame for the dramatic jump in energy prices, we need to remind them - and very loudly - who has really brought the current situation to a head.

Nancy Pelosi (looking alarmingly like a drunken Sherry O'Terry, but I love her anyway...) nailed it yesterday. Check out the video.

Welcome Wagon

The Greeks gave Condi a warm welcome as she arrived in Athens today, spreading peace and, most importantly, freedom.

Athens police have fired teargas during a clash with anti-war demonstrators protesting against a visit by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Some protesters hurled petrol bombs, sticks and stones in return. [BBC]



Funny the American media seems to have missed this... [Via Raw Story]

CAPTION THIS

Streaming Hot New Music

Stream the new accoustic Erasure album Union Street. The collection of songs from the duo's previous albums is great - though probably for true Erasure fans only. Beautiful versions of "Love Affair", "How Many Times" and "Rock Me Gently". "Boy", "Home" and "Blues Away" are also standouts.

AOL Music has a ton of albums available for streaming this week, including the Under the Covers, Vol. 1, the new cover album from Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs (The Bangles). This is a great album! Here's the track list 1. I See The Rain (The Marmalade) 2. And Your Bird Can Sing (The Beatles) 3. It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue (Bob Dylan) 4. Who Knows Where The Time Goes? (Fairport Convention) 5. Cinnamon Girl (Neil Young And Crazy Horse) 6. Alone Again Or (Love) 7. Warmth Of The Sun (The Beach Boys) 8. Different Drum (The Stone Poneys) 9. The Kids Are Alright (The Who) 10. Sunday Morning (The Velvet Underground) 11. Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (Neil Young And Crazy Horse) 12. Care Of Cell ..44 (The Zombies) 13. Monday Monday (The Mamas And The Papas) 14. She May Call You Up Tonight (The Left Banke) 15. Run To Me (The Bee Gees)

Worst President In History?

Check out the cover story from the new issue of Rolling Stone. Quite an indictment.
Here's the first paragraph:
George W. Bush's presidency appears headed for colossal historical disgrace. Barring a cataclysmic event on the order of he terrorist attacks of September 11th, after which the public might rally around the White House once again, there seems to be little the administration can do to avoid being ranked on the lowest tier of U.S. presidents. And that may be the best-case scenario. Many historians are now wondering whether Bush, in fact, will be remembered as the very worst president in all of American history. [AMERICAblog]

There's also a short piece on the new Neil Young album Living With War, which includes the single "Let's Impeach the President".

Oh, and there's some Nick Lachey hotness!

A Republican I Might Vote For














She's a Republican running for Congress.

She's a Gulf War veteran and a financial conservative.

She says that anyone can run for any office.

And she once was a he.

SPRINGFIELD, MO. - Hours before the start of the city's annual St. Patrick's Day parade, Midge Potts wore only a form-fitting corduroy jacket against blustery winds and temperatures hovering in the mid-40s. The coat was hot pink, like her jeans, her boots and the pair of ponytails in her hair. Her only green was the carnation in her lapel. - St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Midge Potts for Congress
Bless her heart. She seems like good people, and probably has a better idea of what Republicans have historically stood for than most who currently wear that label. If only her campaign could afford a good stylist... [Queerty]

A woman's home is her castle

Julie Cherry was on the cover of the business section of the Sunday Tulsa World (registration restricted because Roxana needs a new yacht). The story is about young single women buying homes. Some people will do anything to get laid... ;-) Love the wall color and the shoes are sassy!Julie Jones sits in the empty living room of her newly purchased midtown Tulsa home. More single women are entering the housing market before they have long-established careers, or have found a partner to share the expenses.

Not Playing Nice


I never jumped on the Dixie Chicks bandwagon - shocker, I know. And even though they won major points with me with the whole we're ashamed Bush is from our home state business and their subsequent sticking to their guns, I didn't pay much attention last week when the blogosphere started raving about their new single/video "Not Ready to Play Nice". Hey, I've been busy.

I ran across it again today and decided to give it a go. Wow! The bitches are pissed and I say brava! The video is intelligent, artistic and spot on - and doesn't Natalie Maines look friggin' gorgeous! The oil = blood imagery and the whole lady Macbeth (it's on all of our hands) routine is just brazilliant. Watch it for yourselves.

Here’s a plum passage from the lyrics – posted in their entirety in comments:
I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

Mac Intel Ad

Videobomb has a great take on the new Mac Intel ad with an altered ending.

Sometimes It's Better Not Knowing...

A few weeks ago I got pelted in the head by a rather large hailstone - I'd guess about golf-ball-size. I saw stars for a few seconds and had a knot on my head for days. With reports of softball-sized hail in the area, I wondered if hail could kill a person. Turns out it can happen. Great, now I won't be able to leave the house when it's cloudy...

TUnado


This was filmed half way through Vanessa's art show at the University of Tulsa. Okay, here is what NOT to do when you hear tornado sirens. We Oklahomans can't help it though. When we get a major storm in the day time, our first instinct is to go outside and look up. Tonight we were lucky that there was no serious danger.

Vanessa's Art

bgelder has some of Vanessa's art on art wanker. Would have loved to had been there but... well... there was tornado sirens and... well... I got lost.

Eagle Cam

No Jason, not that Eagle...

Check out this live webcam of two Bald Eagle chicks nesting near Chandler Park. They should be flying on their own by the end of the month, but you can see they're already testing their wings. You'll also see Mom and Dad bring in the catch of the day every now and then. Kind of cool for nature geeks like me...

Hundreds of Bald Eagles migrate through Oklahoma every fall/winter, but until 1985 there were no native nesting populations. Now thanks to repopulation efforts of the Sutton Avian Research Center there are at least 55.

THIS IS NO GAME by Jack Handy

This article has been floating around my sister's restaurant for a couple weeks now. It's written by Jack Handy and was published in the New Yorker. Her boss brought it in and they have been setting out copies of it on the bar so everyone can get a good laugh. It is hilarious. Enjoy! article in comments

Think about the social ramifications of this sentence: Country music legend Willie Nelson debuts the video for his single "Cowboys are Secretly Frequently Fond of Each Other" - featuring actor Burt Reynolds and a bevy of line dancing cowboy studs - on the LOGO gay cable network.
