Beck on SNL

The second song they did with the spoons, plates, stomping, clapping, and harmonica was awesome. I'll look for a copy and post it. Anyone else see it?

A Fun Weekend on the lake

I love Letterman!

October 27, 2006 -- ANY lingering doubts that David Letterman detests Bill O'Reilly will be laid to rest tonight, when the gap-toothed funnyman has the conservative Fox News powerhouse on his CBS "Late Show" and machine-guns him with insults.

In a tape previewed by Page Six, things go downhill fast as O'Reilly sits down and jokingly presents the liberal-leaning host with a plastic sword to do battle and holds up a plastic shield to defend himself.

An irritated Letterman cracks, "Oh, that's nice, that's cute, you come out with toys . . . Am I right about one thing: You guys over there at Fox and guys like Rush Limbaugh, you guys know it's all just a goof, right? You're just horsing around. You're doing it 'cause you know it'll be entertaining?" Letterman adds he's never seen O'Reilly's show because, "I dial up Fox and it's always 'The Simpsons.' "

O'Reilly tries to lighten the mood by telling the audience he and Letterman are "on the same bowling league" and asks whether he'd appear on "Dancing With the Stars."

"Bonehead!" snaps Letterman, who then starts shaking his fist and waving his arms at O'Reilly as the subject turns to the war in Iraq. "Let me ask you a question - was there more heinous, more dangerous violence taking place [before America invaded] Iraq, or is there more heinous, dangerous violence taking place now in Iraq?"

"Oh, stop it," O'Reilly scolds the host. "Saddam Hussein slaughtered 300,000 to 400,000 people, all right, so knock it off . . . It isn't so black and white, Dave - it isn't, 'We're a bad country. Bush is an evil liar.' That's not true."

"I didn't say he was an evil liar," Letterman shoots back. "You're putting words in my mouth, just the way you put artificial facts in your head!"

Letterman admits he hasn't read O'Reilly's new book, "Culture War," because "I looked at it. I said, 'What is it, a book on sailing?' "

Checking his watch to signal an end to the insult-a-thon, Letterman sarcastically quips, "Oh, gosh, where has the time gone?" He adds: "I have no idea what I'm talking about - but I don't think you do, either."

Scrubs and 30 Rock on Thursdays

NBC?s new Thursday line-up, effective Nov. 30:

8:00 p.m. My Name Is Earl
8:30 p.m. The Office
9:00 p.m. Scrubs
9:30 p.m. 30 Rock

We will still TIVO Grey's Anatomy, but lately the show has turned into "Unprofessional Hospital" or "Melrose Anatomy" or maybe "Unrealistic Melodrama Anatomy". But the guy who lit his face on fire was pretty cool. Season 2 was way better not including the "Izzy just killed a guy lets have a Prom finale."

US Generals Who Served In Iraq Say They Are Voting For Democrats...

Two retired senior Army generals, who served in Iraq and previously voted Republican, are now openly endorsing a Democratic takeover of Congress. The generals, and an active-duty senior military official, told Salon in separate interviews that they believe a Democratic victory will help reverse course from what they consider to be a disastrous Bush administration policy in Iraq. The two retired generals, Maj. Gen. John Batiste and Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton, first openly criticized the handling of the war last spring, when they called for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

"The best thing that can happen right now is for one or both of our houses to go Democratic so we can have some oversight," Batiste, who led the Army's 1st Infantry Division in Iraq in 2004 and 2005, told Salon. Batiste describes himself as a "lifelong Republican." But now, he said, "It is time for a change."

It's unfortunate it's taken this long for people to realize it's time for change. Oh well.

Go Gays!!!

New Jersey's Supreme Court opened the door to gay marriage Wednesday, ruling that homosexuals are entitled to the same rights as heterosexuals, but leaving it to lawmakers to legalize same-sex unions.

How sad is it we have to use the courts to decide whether or not humans receive equal rights?

Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot

How low do you have to go to pick on someone with Parkinson's disease?

Why is the government so concerned about strip clubs?

Saying yes to this Ref. is absurd. If you don't go to strip clubs, why do you care? Why is it your business?
How will a four-foot rule make neighborhoods safer? How will a four-foot rule cut down on prostitution? How will a four-foot rule cut down on the drinking in strip club parking lots (since in Seattle you can't drink a beer and watch boobs bounce simultaneously)?

The answer to all of the above is "it won't" and this is just another example of the government trying to regulate something that isn't broken.

The four-foot rule will make lap dances illegal and therefore put hundreds of women out of work. Why would we want to do that?

Facts for Sunday

New York City

The term "The Big Apple" was coined by touring jazz musicians of the 1930's who used the slang expression "apple" for any town or city. Therefore, to play New York City is to play the big time - The Big Apple. There are more Irish in New York City than in Dublin, Ireland; more Italians in New York City than in Rome, Italy; and more Jews in New York City than in Tel Aviv, Israel.

And knowing is half the battle.

Marijuana...Good for you?

I love the second sentence here from the article above...

"Other evidence from population studies suggests that people who regularly smoked marijuana in the 1960s and 1970s are less prone to develop Alzheimer's than people of the same age who did not. Yet many other studies show that long-term regular marijuana use -- 10 years or more -- has a negative effect on a person's ability to pay attention to more than one thing at a time and to learn and remember new information. "

Geez, I don't know anyone like that. Like what? Hey, did I leave the iron on? Dude, South Park is friggin hilarious. Man, I can't believe I used to not like tomotoes in my grilled cheese.

Prohibition II

This is a well written article from Newsweek's Pulitzer Prize winning columnist George Will about the idiocy of banning Internet gambling. Oh and I should probably mention George is another conservative who has been up in arms about all of George Bush's BIG government policies and new laws (i.e. the war, torture, illegal spying etc.)

George calls the banning of Internet gambling prohibition II, but I would argue criminalizing marijuana was II and this is really III. But that is really semantics. The bottom line is the government is once again telling me what I can do with my money.

Check out the article here.

On a side note: whatever happened to Republicans who wanted smaller governement? I miss you.

Wow. A roller coaster game with a walk-off Field Goal from 54 yards. It doesn't get much better than that. Who was that team in the first half? They looked simliar to the team that was destroyed by the Bears two weeks ago. I like the team that played in the second half better. They reminded me of last years team.

Things to remember: we played this game without our star running back (and 2006 MVP), our starting tight end, and our starting slot receiver and best third down receiver. The offensive line is still recovering from injuries. Deion Branch is still learning routes.

Memo to Trufant and Hamlin: I don't care how hard you hit. Just cover people please.
