Geez, anyone can be offended . . .

If crazy people would just stop doing insane things, then maybe we wouldn’t use them to refer to crazy stuff. From Nobody’s Business: Poor, Misunderstood Leatherface.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI, is unhappy with pop-culture depictions of psychopaths and serial killers.

Comedy Central Research to the Rescue

Comedy Central asked Nielsen Media Research to do a little audience research for them after Bill O’Reilly referred to their audience as “stoned slackers”. So who are the “stoned slackers” watching Jon Stewart?

Viewers of Jon Stewart’s show are more likely to have completed four years of college than people who watch “The O’Reilly Factor,” according to Nielsen Media Research

Newlyweds and the Magic(tm) is almost gone

Luckily Staci won’t have to auction any collections on ebay once we’re hitched. Despite being a big D&D geek in middle school, I got out before Magic was on the scene.

 

I’m selling these on behalf of my brand-new husband. We’re in our first apartment, a tiny little thing with no room for random collections. Therefore, the Magic cards have got to go!

This one is mostly for my friends with blogs on Dork Tower. I figure I could aim it to you all individually or post it here instead.

U of Kentucky: Hey – that’s my mascot!

You have to click through to check out the pictures! The university of Kentucky claims an Italian tv show copied their mascot. You have to hate your job when it requires you to say stuff like:

“Their mascot is silent and conceptually different: He’s mute and moves along the sidelines of basketball courts,” Damerini said. “Gabibbo is something else. He talks, he’s a sort of journalist, he does investigations, he’s a real and proper character.”

In pursuit of masks

Instead of being good and sticking to my running schedule, a 40 minute run every other day, I had to skip running on a treadmill tonight. It wasn’t exactly for lack of motivation but the two beers after work did squash the little motivation voice in my head. Still, more pressing things had to get done.

Staci and I spent a good hour and a half running around Sterling looking for a soccer ball mask to wear to a Halloween party this Saturday. We went to six different stores and were lucky to grab the last two at Walmart. We had to psuedo-dumpster dive through boxes and shopping carts filled with cheap masks and costumes.

We’re still debating wether we’ll take them to the DC United playoff game before the party. I think we can put them on at the start of the game and if/when DC scores. Unfortunately, the game won’t be televised locally so the chance of a fleeting minute of camera time is miniscule.

We’ll get pictures of us in our masks and I already have an idea for a picture or two to use permanently on this site.

Did anyone ask for a sign?

Looks like the Man-In-Charge sent Mel Gibson a message about his latest movie project by striking the actor playing Jesus with lightning. It’s also not the first time that this has happened. I’d hate to be on that shoot. "Oh crap, looks like all our water is running blood red."

An assistant director on the film, Jan Michelini, was also hit — for the second time in a few months.
