New Years Bitches!

Before heading off to whatever New Years Eve celebration you have planned, remember these immortal words of that most inspirational of bands, Sprung Monkey:

Party like a rockstar, kick a little ass!

Rock it like a pornstar, slap a little ass!

(see crazy money fantasy from Dude Where's my Car? if you have no idea what I am talking about)

SNL last weekend was hilarious because Justin Timberlake was the host and musical guest. This is his second time on the show and it rocked!! The funniest part was this video. It is hilarious!! I even put it in my Myspace.

President's Dog Best Actor in White House

Your tax dollars hard at work: Barney's Holiday Extravaganza

You know what's really scary about this video? I'm not 100% sure that Bush knows that the dog he is talking to ISN'T GOING TO RESPOND.

The Daily Show's version is way better: Barney's Holiday Extravaganza - The Daily Show Version

Side note: Notice that they never say the cat's name? There is a good reason for this. The cat's name is "India", which caused quite the little party in India a few years ago. Apparently some folks there don't like the President naming something that poops in the box, spits up fur, and could easily be punted 50 yards after their country.

More proof cats are evil

The risks of ransacking a nativity scene (SFW)

I know I have a truly sick sense of humor because I laughed at this so hard a little Pepsi came out of my nose:)

Weekend ventures

Eric and I had a great weekend. Friday night we went to Bleu again, my fave club in Detroit. An old friend from high school that I have recently reconnected with, mentioned that DJ Icey was going to be spinning so we went to check him out since we had not heard of him. As always the music at Bleu rocked hard. The opening DJ was pretty awesome too! I am not sure what type of techno to classify Icey as but it was full of hard beats and seemed to have a tinge of jungle at times. Everytime we are at Bleu they play Eric and my fave new song "Put your hands up for Detroit" (you can sample this here at Eric's Myspace page). We danced the night away with my old friend Jen, who I just saw again Friday after 9 years, and with some of her friends. It was tons of fun. It is good to find more people that love techno as much as we do that are close by. Eric and I met because of dancing and we just love to groove to techno. I was pretty bummed by the lack of glow stick action, oh well...

I protest!

Detroit Free Press - Racy Green Oak mall displays stir up protests

Saw this on the news the other day and I just had to say something. I live within ten minutes of the mall mentioned in this article, so it caught my attention when a group of folks from one of the local churchs started protesting the display in the window of the mall's Victoria Secret.

I don't understand the concept of protesting against underwear displays. You seem to be implying that underwear of and by itself is somehow evil. Aren't you sort of giving the impression to young impressionable girls that they should avoid underwear altogether? Hey, if that is your message I'm all for it:) Maybe I'll show up this weekend with a big sign that reads, "Looking at underwear may make you sin. Avoid the temptation and don't wear any!" I bet the ladies from Holy Spirit would love that:)

Moreover, I don't understand what the big deal is about seeing women's underwear on a mannequin. Did someone walk by the store and think, "Oh my God look! You can see all the way to that mannequin's mold seam. Someone should do something about that!"

Trying to link seeing underwear in a store window with women's dignity is insane. Hey! If you want to wear granny panties all the time, that's your choice. Don't ruin it for the rest of us!

And the stupidity just keeps on coming...

CNN: Mixed reaction to Cheney's daughter's pregnancy

For those unaware, the Vice President's daughter Mary Cheney announced Wednesday that she is pregnant. Normally that would be a huge press opportunity, with the expectant mother brought out into the Rose Garden so everyone can comment on her "glow" (whatever the f#%k that is. The only people I've ever seen glow are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and congratulate her for being so fertile and all that, not to mention trip over themselves telling the VP how to clean up baby spit-up off a Halliburton tie. What a wonderful picture...

Sadly, it's not to be. You see, the vice presidents daughter is...<looks around to make sure no one is listening and whispers>

That's right. A lesbian. A lesbo. A carpet-licker if you will.

So what would normally be an event that the press and white house would be positively wetting themselves over is now something that moral conservatives can comment on so they can appear even more heartless than usual. And as is always the case whenever anyone tries to defend why exactly gay couples shouldn't be allowed to love and marry like us straight folk, they resort to some truly horrible logic:

Janice Crouse of Concerned Women for America described the pregnancy as "unconscionable" and said "It's very disappointing that a celebrity couple like this would deliberately bring into the world a child that will never have a father. They are encouraging people who don't have the advantages they have."

I see. So if you are a gay couple with connections and money, we don't think you getting pregnant is an issue. We are just concerned that you might convince some poorer, less connected lesbians to follow in your footsteps. We can't have that! Ah...right...

Focus on the Family's Carrie Gordon Earll had this gem to share: "Just because you can conceive a child outside a one-woman, one-man marriage doesn't mean it's a good idea. Love can't replace a mother and a father."

That's your logic? If you have to choose between two people being in love raising a child and two people who don't love each other but happen to have a different number of orifices, you would go with option B? Cause that's the way I read that sentence. I know I haven't been on this planet all that long, but I saw enough truly horrible parenting growing up that I know that simply putting a penis and vagina in the same house does not result in well-adjusted, happy children.

Why I love working with engineers

Because they will sometimes IM you things like this:

"Your code no longer doesn't not fail."

Just dip that puppy in a can o' Sears Weatherbeater (tm) and he'll be good all season!

So, um... spray on condoms? Wow, that'll test your trust of latex rubber.
