Dick Shreddin' - Purgin' 'Tube


Let's see.... 7 days away from a mid-term election that is trending towards the Democrats taking back the House and making a race out of the Senate.... A massive shredder is seen pulling up to VP Dick Cheney's house..... hmmmmmm.

Shredding all that evidence is hard work. Fucker:

Shreddin' With Dick


Even though it was said with tongue firmly planted in cheek, this might be the sanest thing a Republican has said in a long time.

This material killed when he tested it out at the Punchline during amateur night:

GOP candidate wants 'compulsory' gay marriage:
"Finger entered a post at The Hill's 'Congress Blog' in which he writes, '...I was recently asked my opinion on the subject of gay marriage. I think it should be not only legal but compulsory.

'I'd like to see those guys get up each morning and apologize just like us straight married guys do. Give us something in common.'"


A reason to vote for a Democrat come next Tuesday. Kick those motherfucking lobbyist out of D.C., Nancy. You... go.... girl... with your San Francisco values:

Lobbyists Won't Like What Pelosi Has in Mind:
"Odds are that lobbying in the House of Representatives is about to get harder."

Feckin' great. We're now outsourcing our past Vice Presidents.

Is there any job the Republicans won't send to another country? High Tech jobs, call-center jobs, torturing jobs, now Vice Presidents?!

Gore to advise British on global warming:
"LONDON - Unchecked global warming will devastate the world economy on the scale of the world wars and the Great Depression, a major British report said Monday.

British Treasury chief Gordon Brown, who commissioned the report, said former Vice President Al Gore, who has dedicated much time to warning of the effects of global warming, would advise the British government on climate change.

Corporate Fuckers

Everybody was cool with YouTube when it was a part of a corporate behemoth. Now that it is, everybody is pulling their stuff off.

At least TDS and TCR are now being presented in full the next day they air on the Comedy Central website. You'll need to allow a popup for their video viewer.

And The YouTube Purge Begins, Starting With Comedy Central:
"The New York Times reports today that, in prepartion for the giant Google takeover (maybe you heard about it?), YouTube has started purging clips. This time, though, it's clips we actually care about: The beloved Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert clips that whip around the internet on blogs and rack up thousands of views daily. The Times reports that Comedy Central finally got around to sending YouTube a cease and desist letter (the kind that NBC got used to sending after 'Lazy Sunday' broke)."

Walmart sucks.... in so many ways. Not good for America.

NYO - Nicholas Von Hoffman:
"Maybe people are so used to learning disturbing things about Wal-Mart that the latest news from America’s largest and most frightening corporation didn’t cause much of a ripple. There was a dearth of denunciation after The New York Times published a well-reported piece on Wal-Mart’s decision to put 40 percent of its workers on part-time and place a ceiling on what they can earn.

In addition, the giant retail chain is ordering its workers to be available for duty anytime, day or night, at its nearly 2,000 24-hour-a-day stores. The company wants to have people on tap for the evenings and weekends, when shopping is heaviest, but in the interest of complete manpower flexibility doesn’t want to provide its employees with a set work schedule. They are to be available whenever the phone rings. Since Wal-Mart has more than a million and a quarter workers, what it does has ramifications.

The havoc this must cause in families with children needs no elaboration. How do you arrange for childcare or after-school supervision if you must wait to be told when you’re going to be working? This is not a problem that Sam Walton’s five heirs are likely to face. One is safe in assuming that they can get a baby-sitter on short notice since, even after being decimated by the death tax, they have managed to salvage $75 billion for their very own, according to Forbes magazine’s latest listing of the 400 wealthiest Americans."

Jeff Sessions hates babies and black Jeebuses

Senator Jeff (Jimmy) Sessions (R-AL) hates babies. He wants to prevent babies from being created and he wants Alabama to be the baby prevention capitol of the world. His pro-death, anti-baby position will allow Alabamians to earn silver pieces for their production of baby batter blocking devices but will also, most assuredly, earn those same Alabamians a special place in Hell. It is hard to spend those silver pieces when they keep melting in your hand.

Sessions is quoted as saying, "They only fertilizin' gonna be happenin' 'round he-ah is when the cow shit hits the ground. Now y'all excuse me, I've got the blood of twenty white babies waitin' on me for lunch." (Sessions may or may not of said these actual words. We just can't prove that he didn't).

....Damn, it's a little too easy to write fecal slinging, made-up commentary like a Republican. I gotta go take another bath, now.

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) Condom King:
"But Senator Jeff Sessions, Republican of Alabama, has quietly pressed to maintain the unqualified priority for American-made condoms and is likely to prevail if the past is any guide."

Cool! AAW joined this campaign last week. Check out the post.

"You turn me out, you turn me on, you turned me loose
Then you turn me wrong.

You dropped a (Google) bomb on me, baby...."

The Gap Band Rocks

A New Campaign Tactic: Manipulating Google Data - New York Times:
Fifty or so other Republican candidates have also been made targets in a sophisticated “Google bombing” campaign intended to game the search engine’s ranking algorithms. By flooding the Web with references to the candidates and repeatedly cross-linking to specific articles and sites on the Web, it is possible to take advantage of Google’s formula and force those articles to the top of the list of search results.

The project was originally aimed at 70 Republican candidates but was scaled back to roughly 50 because Chris Bowers, who conceived it, thought some of the negative articles too partisan.

The articles to be used “had to come from news sources that would be widely trusted in the given district,” said Mr. Bowers, a contributor at MyDD.com (Direct Democracy), a liberal group blog. “We wanted actual news reports so it would be clear that we weren’t making anything up.”

This sucks ass. I'm not naive.... In the back of my mind I knew this shit was happening all along.... It still pisses me off. I guess the only answer is to lie on every form you fill out for anything. Annual income: 2 Billion Dollars!

California shoppers, Schwarzenegger is watching you:
"LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Gin or vodka? Ford or BMW? Perrier or Fiji water? Does the car you buy or what's in your fridge say anything about how you'll vote?

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's campaign thinks so.

Employing technology honed in President Bush's 2004 victory, the Republican governor's re-election team has created a vast computer storehouse of data on personal buying habits and voter records to identify likely supporters. Campaign officials say the operation is the largest of its kind in any state, at any time.

Some strategists believe consumer information can reveal a voter's politics even better than a party label can.

'It's not where they live, it's how they live,' said Josh Ginsberg, the Schwarzenegger campaign's deputy political director."

Peace Takes Courage has a new short put together concerning the troops. Check it out:

Peace Takes Courage


Of course Jesus was black. Ain't no white person got enough coordination to walk on water.

Seriously, though, it kills me to see Jeebus represented as a fair skinned, blue eyed white man. How many fair skinned, blued eyed white men do you think lived in the Middle East 2000 years ago?

Movie News- New Film's Black Jesus Stirs Controversy:
"It is the first representation in the history of American cinema of Jesus as a black man.

'It's very important because (the film) is going to provide an image of Jesus for African-Americans that is no longer under the control of whites,' says Stephenson Humphries-Brooks, an associate professor of religious studies at New York's Hamilton College and author of 'Cinematic Savior: Hollywood's Making of the American Christ.'

DBT Week in Review - 10/27

DBT News

Quick update: Happy Birthday, Jayne Clamp!

Ms. Jenn tips off to an upcoming well deserved DBT break next year:

Nine Bullets:
"Just so y'all know, I think it would behoove you all to get to these shows. I have a feeling this may be the last chance to see DBT in Athens for a LONG time - after NYE, it's possible that DBT will be taking an extended hiatus, by far the most extensive time off this band has taken in 10 years. They need it, so don't begrudge them the time off, but DO go see them. THIS ISN'T a breakup rumor starter or anything so don't get your panties in a wad, just get to the nearest rock show.

God, I love that term: "Panties in a wad". It says so much so well.

Mike from the Yahoo Group spotted this great Patterson interview.

Nashville Scene - Q&A: Patterson Hood of The Drive-By Truckers:
"PH: We’ll be finishing this tour on Halloween and we’ll be doing some one-offs and some weekend stuff from time to time, but I’m not planning on the band touring, maybe even for all next year. Besides doing some one-offs to keep the lights on, I’d like to keep it off the road. We’re gonna make another record. I’m gonna put out my solo record, and Jason’s gonna put his record out and there is some outside production stuff I really want to find some time to do. And I want to spent some time with my family, spend some time enjoying life a little bit. It’s been a really hard year. We’ve been on the road since March almost non-stop, and I’ve got a very little daughter at home that I’m spending way too much time away from—and my wife—so I’m going to try and rectify that."
Let's roll with the Patterson action. Here's a YouTube of Patterson playing an acoustic version of "18". Eeet's berry niiiice (My pitiful impression of Borat):

So what's Jason up to? Kudzu Guillotine fills us in on Nine Bullets:

From Flagpole.com:

Ask For It By Name:
Drive-By Truckers guitarist Jason Isbell has now joined the ranks of Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry. How so? Because folks can now purchase a genuine Jason Isbell signature guitar courtesy of manufacturer First Act. Dubbed 'The Jason Isbell Custom Delgada,' the guitar sure looks comfortable. I haven’t had the chance to play one yet, but Isbell debuted it during the Truckers' appearance on the 'Late Night With Conan O’Brien' show and loved it, so I’ll take that as gospel. Take a gander over at http://www.firstact.com."

Other Music News

Seems to be a real push to make the Shoals the "Hit making capitol of the world" again. Good! Finally!!

FAME Records sponsoring two nights of music:
"FAME Records is sponsoring two nights of music with the intention of putting Muscle Shoals music back on the map.

Rodney Hall, president of FAME Music Publishing, said the shows will be attended by executives with EMI, the world's largest independent music company, creators' rights organization BMI, Anderson Music Merchandising and others.

FAME Records recently announced a partnership with EMI, which will re-release past FAME recordings as well as new artists signed to the FAME label."

Dammit Curt, I swear son I think it's time you came around. Havin' money you can't spend, ain't what bein' deads about.

Cobain bumps off Elvis as top-earning dead celeb:
"NEW YORK (Reuters) - Rock 'n' roll legend Elvis Presley ceded his crown to Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain on Forbes.com's list as the top-earning dead celebrity.

The list, published on Tuesday, said grunge rocker Cobain earned $50 million between October 2005 and October 2006. Presley wound up in the No. 2 slot with $42 million, down from last year's $45 million."

Love the Clash. London Calling always makes me want to rebel.

Clash honored at Rock Hall - Yahoo! News:
"CLEVELAND - Armed with guitars, amps and attitude, they rocked the casbah, fought the law and hijacked a train in vain.

The Clash were more than a four-piece band. They were rock 'n' roll revolutionaries.

"I've been to Georgia on a fast train honey.... Ain't no need in y'all treatin' me this way".

Read the last line. What's his old ass doing wrasslin'?

Billy Joe Shaver Ties the Knot Again:
"Billy Joe Shaver has tied the knot — again.

Shaver, who wrote 'Georgia on a Fast Train' and 'I'm Just an Old Chunk of Coal (But I'm Gonna Be a Diamond Someday),' married Wanda Lynn Canady in Las Vegas on Friday, according to a statement from Compadre Records, his Houston-based independent label.

Billy Gibbons, the bearded frontman for ZZ Top, presided over the ceremony. It was Shaver's second marriage to Canady, said Compadre spokesman Logan Rogers. The first marriage was annulled.

The 67-year-old country singer was married three times to his wife Brenda, who died in 1999. Their first two marriages ended in divorce.

Shortly after the latest wedding, Shaver cracked a vertebra while wrestling with a friend, Rogers told The Associated Press on Tuesday. He was expected to recover."

Finally.... This will shock many of you but.... I can't even comment on it. It's too painful. What next, they'll find out that Curt Cobain injected herion into his veins.... Oh, wait....

Snoop Dogg arrested at SoCal airport:
"BURBANK, Calif. - Snoop Dogg was arrested on suspicion of illegal drug and gun possession, police said."

Loretta Nall Over the Place


Oh, boy, if I lived in Alabama I'd be voting/writing in Loretta's name come November. Check out her sites here and here. Read the story about when she was busted for pot. It is tres awesome. She doesn't take any shit, that is fer sure. Platform: Legalize the Weed. Not comply with the Patriot Act. My kinda girl.

Ala. Hopeful Puts Forth Unique Platform:
"MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Loretta Nall, the Libertarian Party's write-in candidate for governor of Alabama, is campaigning on her cleavage and hoping that voters will eventually focus on her platform.
She's no joke, either. She REALLY knows her shit. Check her out on Olberman:

Let stay with the YouTubes on the internets found on the google. Here is Pumpkinhead speaking some rare truth on the race baiting occuring in Tennessee by the Rethugs and the general racist tendency of the Rethugs. Hey, I'm not saying that all Republicans are racist.... but I am saying that all racists are Republicans.

Somebody must be feeling a change in government coming around the bend.

Nothing to see here folks. Just us government types digging around in your trash.

FBI director wants ISPs to track users:
"FBI Director Robert Mueller on Tuesday called on Internet service providers to record their customers' online activities, a move that anticipates a fierce debate over privacy and law enforcement in Washington next year."


Mesmerizing YouTube video of people on YouTube. If you've got 10 minutes of nothing today, this is a good way to fill it. Angst ridden teens, booty shaking, unsuspecting old folks, suspecting old folks.... this one has it all.

The zenith of YouTube's ascent has been reached. I think that's why I've been using them so much of late.

Blinded me with science

Oh, the possibilities. An entirely new version of Porky's could be written.

Scientists Create Cloak of Partial Invisibility:
"Scientists have created a cloaking device that can reroute certain wavelengths of light, forcing them around objects like water flowing around boulders in a stream. To creatures or machines that see only in microwave light, the cloaked object would appear nearly invisible."
They found Jesus.

New images may give clues on universe's origins:
"JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - The newly discovered collision of two galaxies millions of years ago, which sparked rings of fire that are still expanding, may offer new clues on the origins of the universe, astronomers said on Wednesday.


Lack of sleep puts on the pounds, then, aye?

Why staying up makes you fat:
"An analysis of recent data suggests sleep deficits are making people fat. In studies, 1) sleep shortage in babies and toddlers correlated with obesity at age 7, 2) sleep shortage in adults correlated with high levels of a hormone that tells the brain to eat, and 3) kids who woke up tired got less exercise, which in turn would have helped them sleep. Hypothesis: Sleep shortage distorts your body's regulation of appetite and energy use, thereby promoting obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Researchers' advice:"
I'm sure it has nothing to do with this:

Fried Coke a big hit at US state fairs:
"CHICAGO (AFP) - Fried Coke has become the latest artery-clogging hit at US state fairs, local media reports.

The gooey Coke-battered nuggets topped with cola syrup won the 'most creative' title at the Texas state fair in Dallas last month. Since then, the deep-fried phenomenon has spread to North Carolina and Arizona.
Better start eating some purple 'maters!

'Definitely different': Tomatoes the color of blueberries:
"SALEM, Oregon (AP) -- Oregon State University researchers are fine-tuning a purple tomato -- a new blend of colors and nutrients. The skin is as dark as an eggplant. But it doesn't just look cool -- it could be better for you.

The novel pigment contains the same phytochemical found in blueberries that is thought to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. Six years in the making, the purple hybrid could hit salad plates in two years."

One Sick Porn Mother "Staying The Course"

"It wasn't me"

Liar, liar pants on fire!

Remember the Eddie Murphy routine in Raw where his woman confronts him about sleeping with another woman. Eddie's response was "It wasn't me". His woman tells him that she saw him coming out of the other girl's house. Eddie's response, "It wasn't me".

This is Bush's version. I guess he's hoping we conclude what Eddie's woman did, "Maybe it wasn't you...".

Not gonna happen this time, Bushie:

Why do Republican's hate the troops so?

The IAVA is non-partisan.... we'll they were until they did some non-partisan research that shows the Dems truly support the troops compared to the Rethugs. Now the IAVA can look forward to Hannidate, Mush Limpballs, Ann Coultergiest (wait, we haven't heard much from her lately. They must have muzzled her and left her in the basement til post elections) smearing their particular brand of feces all over the organization.

IAVA Support-The-Troops Rankings for Senate:
"As I said in my piece today 'Vets Group Proves GOP Does Not Support Troops,' careful scrutiny by the Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) shows that by a ludicrous margin, it is Senate Democrats, not Republicans, who truly support active troops, Veterans and military families.

Here's the full Senate rankings, with the letter grade assigned by IAVA:"
Pat Tillman's Brother Speaks

I read a great article on Pat Tillman recently. My god, did the Bush administration use and abuse his death. Pat was an amazing, brilliant, balls-the-size-of-California individual who knew the war in Iraq was illegal but gave up a bazillion dollars in the NFL to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq. If you've never read anything on the man, do so:

After Pat’s Birthday:
"It is Pat’s birthday on November 6, and elections are the day after. It gets me thinking about a conversation I had with Pat before we joined the military. He spoke about the risks with signing the papers. How once we committed, we were at the mercy of the American leadership and the American people. How we could be thrown in a direction not of our volition. How fighting as a soldier would leave us without a voice… until we get out. "
The Simpson's Bush Bash

You've got to love that Matt Groening has so much financial pull at FOX that he can do pretty much what he wants. Even something like this:

Fresh Intelligence : Radar Online:
"Anyone who thinks Hollywood is run by a liberal cabal won't change his mind after watching The Simpsons' annual Halloween special. The episode, which airs Nov. 5, concludes with an Iraq war satire that may rank as the most pointed political statement the show has ever made. In the segment, aliens invade Springfield to prevent mankind from obtaining 'weapons of mass disintegration,' but their mission, called 'Operation Enduring Occupation,' turns into a quagmire. 'You said we would be greeted as liberators!' accuses one alien.

'We were looking for an ending to the episode, and it just kind of suggested itself,' says Simpsons executive producer Al Jean. 'I'd like to take credit for being adventuresome, but I think we're expressing a viewpoint 69 percent of the country agrees with.'"
CA. Gov Candidate bits the Bust

Who, praytell, am I suppose to vote for now? It's understandable, though. Her mom is sick. Apparently her mom suffers from gravity sickness. "Between the champange, handjobs and the kissin' ass by everyone involved". Just when you thought the story couldn't get any better:

Porn star gives up candidacy to be with sick mom:
"LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Porn star Mary Carey said Monday she was dropping out of the California governor's race to be with her ailing mother, who has been hospitalized in Florida since jumping off a four-story building last month.

Must See Olberman Commentaries

First....... Blogger Sucks. If you need to search a term on the web I encourage you to use Yahoo. Far superior to Google. Google has all the branding but a shitty product and everything they touch turns to shit.... AND they have recently become large donors to the GOP. Fuck Google and Fuck Google's Blogger.

Today was going to be all Oblerman because he's been doing a little something called 'journalism' of late. A lot of you won't know this term... you may not even be able to comprehend the letters of the word in their order. I realize it is an alien concept. Most of you only know 'fair and balanced'. But, journalism, as it is called, in the past, has been a successful way to safeguard the public from governments that want to get naughty.

Before we get to Olberman, I want you to take a look at why you should vote for the Democrats.... any Democrat.... every Democrat come this November. I present to you Michael J. Fox:

Pretty powerfull, huh? Let's see what the 'fair and balanced' folks have to say about Michael J. Fox, shall we?
"'I stated when I saw the ad, I was commenting to you about it, that he was either off the medication or he was acting. He is an actor, after all.'"
This is coming from some who sure knows his medication, boy howdy! Stephen Hawkins is just a lazy son-of-a-bitch ridin' around in that chair of his, huh, Rush?


On to Olberman...

Watch his latest special comment here. The link takes you directly to a MOV. Give a second to load. So good, so powerful.

Olbermann news commentaries target Bush:
"NEW YORK - Keith Olbermann's tipping point came on a tarmac in Los Angeles six weeks ago. While waiting for his plane to take off he read an account of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld's speech before the American Legion equating Iraq War opponents to pre-World War II appeasers.

The next night, on Aug. 30, Olbermann ended his MSNBC 'Countdown' show with a blistering retort, questioning both the interpretation of history and Rumsfeld's very understanding of what it means to be an American.

It was the first of now five extraordinarily harsh anti-Bush commentaries that have made Olbermann the latest media point-person in the nation's political divide.

'As a critic of the administration, I will be damned if you can get away with calling me the equivalent of a Nazi appeaser,' Olbermann told The Associated Press. 'No one has the right to say that about any free-speaking American in this country.'"
Now, take a look at his comments on the Military Torture Act recently signed into law by Putz in Chief:

Tag! You're not it!

We are producing several generations of dimwitted (No Child Left Behind), obese, little pussies. No tag!? Outrageous! Why don't parents just package their children in bubble-wrap and arm them with a can of pepper spray, then never let them leave the house.

Oh, and I didn't have to wear no stinkin' helmet when I rode my bike as a kid. It taught me how to fall.... and how to survive a fall. Now look at me. I've got my own blog. Yeah.

Playing tag now a no-no at some US schools:
"WASHINGTON (AFP) - Two Massachusetts primary schools this week joined a growing list of US schools that have banned the age-old game of tag for fear that children may get hurt and their parents will sue.

Officials at McCarthy Elementary School in Framingham in the northeastern state, told local media that children have been ordered to invent a new no-contact version of the game for safety reasons."

I almost posted this article alone today. I mean, really, how does one produce a snarky enough comment to compete with the 'Greatest Headline Ever'.

Dang, I want to hang out in Spain. Bet they play tag.... and don't have to wear helmets when they ride their bikes. It must of been a crazy night. I hear the bear pulled first, though. Got what he deserved. Can't hold his likker for shit, either.

Spanish king denies shooting drunk bear:
"MADRID, Spain - The king says it didn't happen. And the bear isn't around to talk about it anymore.

A spokeswoman for Spanish King Juan Carlos said Thursday that Russian reports the 68-year-old monarch brought down a tamed and inebriated bear during a visit in August were 'ridiculous.'

The palace confirmed the king, who is known to enjoy hunting, was in Russia at the time of the alleged shooting, but it says he didn't kill any bear, let alone one that was fed vodka-spiked honey.

'He neither hunted with (Russian President Vladimir) Putin nor killed a bear,' a spokeswoman for the palace told The Associated Press."

'Screw you guys.... I'm goin' home'.

Can't you just see them in Texas frantically trying to revive his ass so they don't get gypped on some killin'.

Texas inmate kills self day of execution:
"LIVINGSTON, Texas - A death-row inmate slit his own throat with a makeshift knife early Thursday, committing suicide about 15 hours before he was scheduled to be executed, a prison official said."

Hello! Evolution, people. The Croc Hunter was a test case although they've been thinking for years how to stop him from harassing them.

The stingrays have figured it out. "Go for the chest, boys, that's where they're weakest."

Stingray Leaps Into Boat, Stabs Man in Chest:
"LIGHTHOUSE POINT, Florida (Oct. 19) - A stingray jumped into the boat of an 81-year-old Florida man and stabbed him in the chest, leaving its long barb stuck in him, authorities said."

DBT Week in Review - 10/20

Patterson Hood and Company @ Nuci's Space 10/6/06.

Via Jayne. Courtesy of Sloan at Southern Shelter.


Pictures and tales from the Cleveland show via the Nine Bullets Posting Board


Welcome, newbies! Glad to have you on the DBT 'band'wagon....

dbts : Message: "Hardly Strictly" Bluegrass festival 10/8/06:
"I went to the 'Hardly Strictly' Bluegrass festival last week in Golden Gate Park and saw the last part of DBT's set. Wow! I was totally blown away by the band and how good they were - I'm sorry I didn't see the whole set. The 'Bulldozer and dirt' song was great -everybody in my section of the audience was singing along. This music did seem like the *heaviest* I heard at this festival. Did I mention that this is was my first time seeing the DBTs? I'm now hooked..."

dbts : Message: Re: Wow.:
"I introduced my buddy, Jeff, a kid who just graduated from the University of Toledo, to DBT, The Drams, and Slobberbone. He now lives in Cleveland.
Just thought you'd like to hear his first impressions:

Show was AMAZING. How amazing you ask? So amazing I am gettin outta work early Friday so I can make the 4 hour drive to Detroit and see it again.

After listening to the album I thought the Drams would be a lil more pop and soft rather than the punk sound of Slobberbone but they came out and rocked balls. "
....as the band continuously reminds us long-timers why we love them so:

dbts : Message: Why there's none better than DBTS:
"Back in 1974 I bought an album called Ooh La La by The Faces. The Faces were a group of funny-looking misfit drunkards. A Faces song was basically this: everybody play whatever you feel like playing and Rod Stewart will sing his tits off and we'll hope it works. Ooh La La was the last record The Faces recorded in the studio. The critics hated it. Rod Stewart called it garbage. The rest of the Faces claimed Rod was keeping all his good stuff for his (fantastic!!) solo albums he was recording while a member of the Faces. I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT. Nobody else I knew ever bought it or liked it when I played it for them. A year or so after the album came out the Faces came through town with a little-known dude named Peter Frampton as the opening act. The show was amazing (even though the great Ronnie Lane had left the band and was replaced by the skinniest Japanese guy you've ever seen) but the band basically ignored the Ooh La La album for earlier stuff, a couple of Rod's solo songs and some great covers-Jumping Jack Flash!!!! Now its thirty years later and I'm an old funny-looking drunkard who still loves his rock and roll. I take the two and a half hour ride to Cleveland to see The Drive-By Truckers, a bunch of drunk kids that I just can't seem to convince anyone are the greatest band out there today. Right in the middle of the show at thew House Of Blues the youngest member of the band announces that Ian MacLagan is playing across town and he's sorry he couldn't get over to see the show but he was gonna do one of his songs. Ian MacLagan was The Faces keyboard player and the song the band played was Glad And Sorry from the Ooh La La album. When Jason sang the opening line- Thank You Kindly For Thinking Of Me- I felt like I was alone in the room with the band and they were playing to just me. A truly Transcendental moment; a great gift to an old rocker that sometimes forgets to enjoy the beauty of the little things. Thank you Jason. Thank you Patterson. Thank you Mike Thank you Shonna. Thank you Brad. You guys are great rock and rollers and are truly touching the lives of the people who have been lucky enough to find your music. Ronny Metallo"

San Francisco icon bit the dust this week. Sign O' the Times:

For S.F. rockers, Tower Records was where it was all happening -- now the party's over:
"Record promotion men Jeff Trager and Bill Perasso used to sit around drinking with pal Russ Solomon at their favorite hangout, the cocktail lounge at Villa Roma at the busy intersection of Columbus and Bay streets. Solomon, who owned record stores in Sacramento, would point to the supermarket across the street. 'One day I'm going to open a store there,' he told them."

Red vs. Blue




In the filing in state court in suburban Franklin, where the couple has a home, Evans alleges that Schelske watched pornography on the couples' computers and has at least 100 nude photographs of himself in a state of arousal.

She also alleges that several photographs show Schelske having sex with other women.

According to the court documents, the oldest of the couple's children confronted Schelske when he was watching pornographic material on the television in their home."
"The common good, as both a philosophical ideal and approach to governing, has a rich history in the civic strands of American thought and in the values and principles of the U.S. Constitution. It is also a powerful theme in the social teachings of many major faith traditions. In both the civic and faith realms, a commitment to the common good means pursuing policies and community actions that benefit all individuals and balance self-interest with the needs of the entire society. It recognizes that government -- while not the only tool -- is essential for helping people pursue their dreams, and that the business, labor, faith and NGO communities play a critical role as well. "


Republicans are the party of family values.

They’re the party that protects the sanctity of marriage. Their morality is stronger than their opposition.

So say the Republicans. But the statistics say differently.

Of the top 15 states for divorce rates in 2005, all 15 voted for Bush in 2004. All fifteen.

Of the 12 lowest states for divorce rates, 11 voted for Kerry."

Take Representative Terry Everett, a seven-term Alabama Republican who is vice chairman of the House intelligence subcommittee on technical and tactical intelligence.

'Do you know the difference between a Sunni and a Shiite?' I asked him a few weeks ago.

Mr. Everett responded with a low chuckle. He thought for a moment: 'One's in one location, another's in another location. No, to be honest with you, I don't know. I thought it was differences in their religion, different families or something.'

To his credit, he asked me to explain the differences. I told him briefly about the schism that developed after the death of the Prophet Muhammad, and how Iraq and Iran are majority Shiite nations while the rest of the Muslim world is mostly Sunni. 'Now that you've explained it to me,' he replied, 'what occurs to me is that it makes what we're doing over there extremely difficult, not only in Iraq but that whole area.'

This idiot isn't some backbencher. He's the vice chairman of the House intelligence subcommittee on technical and tactical intelligence."

Weed, Bees, Goblins and Total Recall.... Oh My!

If this passes is there any reason not to move to Nevada?

Nevada to vote on legalizing marijuana:
"RENO, Nev. - Gambling, prostitution, and now pot? Organizers of a Nevada ballot measure hope voters in a state where almost everything goes will go one better and legalize marijuana."

We don't have to wait 100,000 years for this split to occurr. It has already happened:

Democrats = healthy, attractive, intelligent, and creative.
Republicans = "dim-witted, ugly, squat goblin-like creatures."

NO apologies for that one, folks. None. Nadda.

Sky News: Goblins And Giants: Humans To Split:
"Social division might split humans into two sub-species 100,000 years from now, an evolution expert has claimed.

The descendants of the genetic upper class would be tall, slim, healthy, attractive, intelligent, and creative.

They would be a far cry from the 'underclass' humans, who will have evolved into dim-witted, ugly, squat goblin-like creatures."

This holds serious interest to me, but aren't there things that you just want to forget? Like those 2 a.m. bar mistakes? This applies to the ladies and the men. It would be great for settling bets, though.

Digital age may bring total recall in future:
"CNN) -- Have you ever wished for a backup brain -- a device that could remember everything in your life from the smallest of details to your most memorable moments?

Computer engineer Gordon Bell, a researcher for Microsoft Corp., is working on just such a mechanism. He's trying to devise what amounts to a digital diary, a searchable database that contains digitized versions of nearly everything in his life.

'As a research project, the idea is being obsessed with recording everything I can,' said Bell, the head researcher in a project called MyLifeBits for nearly five years at Microsoft."

"Why do birds (of the same sex) suddenly appear (criticizing your fashion sense) everytime you are queer"?

Animals are gay.

Birds and bees may be gay:
"With documentation of gay or lesbian behavior among giraffes, penguins, parrots, beetles, whales and dozens of other creatures, the Oslo Natural History Museum concludes human homosexuality cannot be viewed as 'unnatural.'

'We may have opinions on a lot of things, but one thing is clear -- homosexuality is found throughout the animal kingdom, it is not against nature,' an exhibit statement said."

Dum, da-dum dumb! Your Republican party. Lazy, lying, incurious, vain, fools.

Lawyer: Gov't workers got fake diplomas:
"SPOKANE, Wash. - At least 135 federal employees, including a White House staff member and National Security Agency employees, bought bogus online college degrees from a diploma mill, a lawyer in the case against the mill operators said."

Hopefully we are becoming one in our opposition to the fools runnin' the joint.

Mr. NASCAR Tells Me How He'll Vote:
Although Mr. RenaRF is not especially a football fan, if he's not working I'll watch the football game at home (Washington's my team - long may they suck). The last two Sundays, however, he's been working. Two Sundays ago I just watched the game in my empty house, shrieking and scaring the cats. Yesterday, though, I decided to watch at least the first half at a nearby watering hole with lots of sports screens.

That's where I met Mr. NASCAR."

I've posted about McGraw back in January regarding his politics. A crappy Nashville country singer I can like for something other than their crappy Nashville country music. Plus, his wife is SO fine. I mean, SO fine.

McGraw bucks conservative country image:
"NEW YORK - Country music might seem like a pretty conservative medium, but
Tim McGraw is bucking the trend. 'It's innate in me to be a Democrat — a true Southern populist kind of Democrat. There's not a lot of those anymore,' McGraw tells Time magazine in its Oct. 23 issue.

'The issues that matter to me are the social safety nets for people, health care, middle-class concerns. We need to take care of the middle class and the poor in our country. The chasm is getting larger between haves and have-nots, and that's something we need to close down a little bit,' says the singer and star of 'Flicka.'

I never knew that my governor only had 9 fingers. WARNING: Not safe for work unless you work for yourself or no one can see your monitor:

Raunchy photo of Schwarzenegger published:
"Radar Online has published a photograph of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger engaging in lewd behavior with a young woman in a restaurant."

"Waaaah Wa-Wa-Waaaaahhhhh. Stupid-stupid heads all don't like me. I'm taking my oil and going home". What a little bitch. Fake southerner, yankee blue blood, little bitch.

Bush in a Snit:
"The notion that President Bush is not just in denial -- but is petulantly in denial -- is taking on greater credence thanks to two recent Washington Post stories."

While this is a cool story, what caught my attention was the word "orbs". I like the word "orbs". It is comforting and exciting all wrapped up in 4 little letters. Hmmm, I wonder why. Orbs.

Milky Way teeming with Earth-like orbs:
"But Kailash Sahu, a lead astronomer at the Space Telescope Institute in Baltimore, said the Hubble has surveyed only a small, tight fraction of the Milky Way in the galaxy's central bulge some 26,000 light-years away. 'Our discovery gives very strong evidence that planets are as abundant in other parts of the galaxy as they are in our own solar neighborhood,' he said."

Estrogen Mafia

Hello, MSM, where the fuck have you been. They're just now figuring out that this a story? This story is 3 years old. Welcome, dipshits.

Bush keeps revising war justification
President Bush keeps revising his explanation for why the U.S. is in Iraq, moving from narrow military objectives at first to history-of-civilization stakes now."

Again.... Welcome.

Poll - South strongly turning against Iraq war


Please, oh, please, oh, please let the women get a hold of things in this country. I am all for it. Men have been fucking up things for far too long. We need the women folk to run this show for a while.

A Gender Insurgency In Politics:
"Men have been making policy in Washington for as long as most of us can remember. But much of the political future rests in the hands of women."

Murtha speaketh....

Confessions of a 'Defeatocrat':
"Democrats are fighting a war on two fronts: One is combating the spin and intimidation that defines this administration. The other is fighting to change course, to do things better, to substitute smart, disciplined strategy for dogma and denial in Iraq.

That's not defeatism. That's our duty."

Why, oh, why do they hate science so? Oh yeah, because of that nasty little thing called knowledge. Not good for the sheeple. When the sheeple get smart they tell the sheppard to get fucked. November 7 is the time to tell the sheppard to get fucked.

Experts claim EPA under fire from Bush Administration:
"Experts interviewed by RAW STORY indicated a wide swath of damage done by the Bush Administration to EPA. Political appointees, low scientist morale, and misuse of science extend across all aspects of government research and policy. It’s an impact that is bound to outlive the administration and might not be corrected by future presidents, the experts said.

“People need to understand how driven this administration is,” Cornehls stated. “Decisions are made on a belief system rather than on good science.”"

Sign o' the times:

Jobless man asks judge for jail time:
"COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A man who couldn't find steady work came up with a plan to make it through the next few years until he could collect Social Security: He robbed a bank, then handed the money to a guard and waited for police.

On Wednesday, Timothy J. Bowers told a judge a three-year prison sentence would suit him, and the judge obliged.

'At my age, the jobs available to me are minimum-wage jobs. There is age discrimination out there,' Bowers, who turns 63 in a few weeks, told Judge Angela White."

DBT WIR - Shut up and Get on the Plane

First, I've changed the site for the weekend to honor the kick off of the DBT/Drams tour. Two mighty fine bands putting on what will be the best rock show in the states for the next couple of weeks.

Columbus, OH - Tonight
Cleveland, OH - Tomorrow
Pittsburgh, PA - Sunday....

You lucky bastards! Get out and support these fellas and lady (speaking of the lady she got several 'ohs' and 'ahs' at the Hardly Strictly show last weekend. Lookin' fine, Shonna!) buy some merch. Give them much love!


Update: Check out Patterson's Blog on Gibson.com

On with the DBT WIR - Shut up and Get on the Plane.....

Seriously, now, shut your mouth and get your ass on the plane. Take some Zoloft if you need too... We'll maybe don't, but all that family's problems did disappear over night.

We had a mighty fine weekend in the Bay Area last week. Chock full of visual and auditory candy. The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival was held in Golden Gate park and DBT played it for the first time ever on Sunday.

On Friday I dodged out of work early to check out the kick off of the Festival. Elvis Costello with the Hammer of the Honkey-Tonk Gods got things started. Here's a couple of photos of about 50k folks who ditched work early, too.

It was also Fleet Week in the City-by-the-Bay and Saturday evening I had the honor of buying a drink for a Navy soldier who was taking leave from the U.S.S. Nimitz. Those aircraft carriers are freakin' HUGE!

Earlier that Saturday we caught an awesome airshow by the Blue Angels from the roof top of a fellow Alabamian's apartment building in the Marina District. Believe it or not, that little lady on the far right of the below picture was Miss Lauderdale County H.S. 1996. Know where LCHS is located? Rogersville, Alabama. She didn't have "a case a Sterling Bigmouths", but she did have 2 six packs of Stella Artois which were mighty tasty. Oh, and the "half ounce of weed".... well...... :-)

Be sure to click on the pictures in order to see the jets really well. I didn't reduce the size of the pictures so they blow up pretty good.

From the roof top with Pacific Heights in the background.

A view of Pacific Heights. Rich folk live there.

Straight up


Blue Angels

A lot of fun to watch those crazy cats. Now, on to DBT at the Hardly Strictly:

Strictly a good time: Annual free Golden Gate Park bluegrass festival gets better -- and bigger -- with age.:
"With most of the festival's biggest names reserved for Sunday, and Saturday's bill more concentrated on traditional acoustic music, the crowds for the first day of the weekend have always been substantially smaller. But the audience Saturday topped the previous year's attendance by at least half. Police estimated that as many as 500,000 people could have attended the three-day event."
500,000 people... and a snake. That snake came from one of the planes. It was a 'Snake on a Plane'. The hype on that one died pretty quickly, aye?

Best part is that he's drinking a King Cobra. Nice!

And what would a concert in Golden Gate park be without a spinning hippie. Hey, look! A Spinning hippie.

Know what song she was spinning to? Lookout Mountain. No shit. Actually she spun and hippie grooved to all the songs, but it as funny as hell to have a hippie spinning in front of you while the heavy metal sounds of Lookout Mountain are permeating the park.

This was the largest crowd I've ever seen DBT play too. I guesstimated around 7K. Here's a look from the front of the stage to as far as I could see going back. (Hey, I was hung over as piss that day and I found a spot in the shade and stayed there. No photo journalist was I.)

Here is a shot of the stage and some rocking out pictures:

The COOLEST part of the show was the Blue Angels flying over while DBT played. DBT damn near was the only thing in SF that weekend that was louder the Blue Angels. Click to see the jet above the stage.

Here they are in formation over the stage:

Here's Patterson preaching and the band Rocking:

The crowd loved them. They gained a ton of new fans that day and I had a shit load of people from the Bay Area find this site by searching for DBT this last week. The guy in front of me during the show turned around and said that he had never heard of the band until he looked them up online the morning before the show. He was seriously impressed. He asked me how many albums they had put out and I said 7. He asked which one should he get and I said all of 'em.

A band called Freakwater played before DBT, and, I apologize if there are any fans of this group reading this, they were a snooze and a half. Reminded me of the country music I hated growing up. DBT was a "Day" to Freakwater's "Night". Shifting from Dec Day to Lookout blew people away. Buttholeville brought the park down as the final song. The stage MC said something to the effect of "That's how you DO it" when DBT was finished. It was an awesome weekend.

Under the terms of the deal, EMI will distribute new FAME Records product along with rare and vintage Southern soul and rhythm-and-blues recordings from the treasured FAME vaults."

I'd really like to hear some thoughts from you folks in the comments on the following article. One person was waving a small Confederate flag during the DBT show.

Red flag - NASCAR - Yahoo! Sports:
"'Why are you doing this to us?' demanded one public relations woman. 'This is not a story,' shouted another, even after I pointed out that the flags are still flying. 'Absolutely no way, no how,' said another.

Email responses were often bitter. Face-to-face encounters often worse. Interview and statement requests were summarily denied. At some drivers' scheduled weekly press conferences, I was told that any question involving the flag would end the session."

What the fuck is wrong with christians?

Angry Christians force Slayer album out of India:
"MUMBAI (Reuters) - U.S. heavy metal band Slayer's latest album has been recalled from music stores across India after the country's small Christian community said the cover depicting Christ with amputated arms and a missing eye was insulting."
That's all for this week, folks. Go out and support DBT and the Drams.

Straight Bullshit Express - Choo Choo!

What Josh Marshall says:

Talking Points Memo:
"For the US this is a strategic failure of the first order.

The origins of the failure are ones anyone familiar with the last six years in this country will readily recognize: chest-thumping followed by failure followed by cover-up and denial. The same story as Iraq. Even the same story as Foley.
But wait, Saint McCain is speaking. Everybody hush and listen to the prophet of the straight talk express. He'll shed new light on this problem and lead us to a solution not yet conceived by us mere mortals. Lets see what he has to say:

After Blaming Clinton For North Korea Nuke, McCain Blasts People ‘Engaging In Finger-Pointing’:
"Yesterday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) explicitly blamed the Clinton administration for North Korea’s nuclear weapons test on Sunday: “[I]t is a failure of the Clinton administration policies…that have caused us to be in the situation we’re in today.”

This morning on NBC, “Straight Talk” McCain had a different tune: “I think this is the wrong time for us to be engaging in finger pointing when in this crucial time, we need the world and Americans united.”"
Seems to me Saint McCain is straight talkin' out of both sides of his ass.... again! Blame Clinton... yeah, that's an original argument for Rethugs. "It rained out little Billy's baseball game yesterday". "Goddamn Clinton"!

That shit happen on two consecutive days. One day he's blaming Clinton and the next day he's making a plea to not 'finger point'?

Vote for that fool at your own risk in '08. I thought it was a smear in 2000 by the Bush cadre, but maybe all that torture did fuck up McCain pretty badly. Just sayin'.....

Let's see what Josh Marshall has to say now:

Talking Points Memo:
"'Failure' =1994-2002 -- Era of Clinton 'Agreed Framework': No plutonium production. All existing plutonium under international inspection. No bomb.

'Success' = 2002-2006 -- Bush Policy Era: Active plutonium production. No international inspections of plutonium stocks. Nuclear warhead detonated.

Face it. They ditched an imperfect but working policy. They replaced it with nothing. Now North Korea is a nuclear state.

Facts hurt. So do nukes."
"Facts hurt". Yes they do. I'm just not sure who they are hurting at this point. Bizarro World!

They don't have skeellz..... steelz.... fo' reelz

FBI Agents Still Lacking Arabic Skills :
"Five years after Arab terrorists attacked the United States, only 33 FBI agents have even a limited proficiency in Arabic, and none of them work in the sections of the bureau that coordinate investigations of international terrorism, according to new FBI statistics."
Welcome to Gilead, Bitches!

Where's my OfJPW

There is no separation of church and state:
"The NY Times has a long article that is basically a litany of the exemptions and privileges granted to religious organizations. A church-based daycare, for instance, has none of the licensing requirements of a private daycare, and doesn't have to meet any of the standards of a non-religious establishment, nor does it have to worry about civil rights requirements…and it's protected from lawsuits.

The practice of granting churches ever more special rights is accelerating, too, since legislators are always willing to hand over more to the pious frauds. Wouldn't want to be thought disrespectful of religion, you know—so what if they're greedily sucking up more and more money. That's what Christianity is all about!

I say we should revoke the tax-exempt status of all religious organizations. They can ask for exemption for their charitable efforts (and only that part of their work; I don't consider evanglism or missionary work to be charity) just like any secular organization, but simply having 'Christ' in their name and mission statement and having a few guys running around with clerical collars is not sufficient justification. It's time to end the sacred scam."
Boo-yah on the "sacred scam" bit. I couldn't agree more. Take away their tax exemption. Now!

Chavez is a tool

It's not because he dissed Bush at the U.N. by calling him the devil. That was actually pretty funny. Escpecially when he mentions the sulfur smell. Chavez has the makings of a comedic genius with that type of timing and creativity, but.....

Chavez is a tool because of this:

Venezuela to ban beer sales on stree:
"CARACAS, Venezuela - Venezuela's president has a new public enemy: beer trucks.

President Hugo Chavez said Tuesday he is fed up with seeing beer trucks sell alcohol directly on the streets of poor neighborhoods."
Hugo, you bastard. We don't even have beer trucks in the states! What kind of socialist are you, anyway? The U.S.S.R. never, ever thought about taking away the vodka! Dick!!

I was going to make today a YouTube day in celebration of YouTube's recent corporate whoredom. (Google is quickly becoming the Walmart of tech companies. Can't figure out why those guys have gone all neocon of late. Seem to be hitching their wagon to some ponies heading off a cliff). But, I came across this email from one of our fightin' men in Iraq and I wanted to share it with you. It is enlightening, funny, scary and sad. It puts a real face on this forgotten war that's getting uglier and uglier every day.

Marine For Life - Email from Iraq:
"Best Chuck Norris Moment - 13 May. Bad Guys arrived at the government center in the small town of Kubaysah to kidnap the town mayor, since they have a problem with any form of government that does not include regular beheadings and women wearing burqahs. There were seven of them. As they brought the mayor out to put him in a pick-up truck to take him off to be beheaded (on video, as usual), one of the bad Guys put down his machinegun so that he could tie the mayor's hands. The mayor took the opportunity to pick up the machinegun and drill five of the Bad Guys. The other two ran away. One of the dead Bad Guys was on our top twenty wanted list. Like they say, you can't fight City Hall."
Hell you can't fight 'em if they take your gun away, now can you? Sounds like a good issue for the NRA to take up.


YouTube, ITube, we all Tube for YouTube....

Check out Stephn Colbert County on George Bush and "Words".


Here are two, stellar, special comments from Keith Olbermann. If you are not watching him... why are you not watching him?

Olbermann's Special Comments:
"The traditional media has been slow to come to grips with the American public's distrust and dislike of President Bush -- sentiments clearly reflected in opinion polls dating back well over a year.

Almost alone among the network newscasters, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann is channeling that sensibility. Channeling it -- and amplifying it."
Count Down - Special Comment - Bush Lies (Quicktime)

But the premise of a President who comes across as a compulsive liar — is nothing less than terrifying.

A President who since 9/11 will not listen, is not listening — and thanks to Bob Woodward's most recent account — evidently has never listened.

A President who since 9/11 so hates or fears other Americans, that he accuses them of advocating deliberate inaction in the face of the enemy.

A President who since 9/11 has savaged the very freedoms he claims to be protecting from attack. Attack by terrorists, or by Democrats, or by both — it is now impossible to find a consistent thread of logic as to who Mr. Bush believes the enemy is.

Speaking of 9/11 here is Keith's special comment on that day. So powerful.

Start watching Keith. He along with Jon Stewart and Colbert are the only worthy news sources on television. And 2 out of the 3 are "fake" news programs. Says a lot doesn't it?
