Butch needs a home, how can I compete? Of all weekends…



My sister called me last night to let me know that she’s moving on Monday and the new place does not welcome feline residents.

SO my dear friend Butch is facing homelessness in a couple days. We can’t have him here due to deathly huzbond allergies (eyes swell up like water balloons) so I’m putting the feelers out.

Apparently, coincidentally, so is the Humane Society: ““FREE TO A GOOD HOME” DESPERATE CAT CRISIS AT THE TORONTO HUMANE SOCIETY”

The art of floating an air biscuit – inherent or learned?



I think everyone has a particular, consistent style when it comes to anal audio.

Seriously. I know it’s gross, but think about it and then think about your loved ones. My guess is that it’s inherent but not necessarily hereditary. Perhaps we’re sitting on a new biometric measure?

For example, as a child I’d often sit at the kitchen table to eat my pb&j, minding my own biz. My evil dad would quietly float by – in one door and out the other. Seconds later, I’d face an altered state of reality with the sting of his stinker impairing all five senses. Staggering and fighting for survival, I’d barely be able to make out his laughter from the other end of the apartment. His pacing was the best, bless his soul.

Pop’s Power Elite on Britney and Other Glitterati



And the survey says?

“Trust me, she’s over.”

The L.A. times interviewed 21 of the music industry’s top execs (Clive Davis, Don Ienner, Kanye West) to anonymously dig at their thoughts on the world’s highest-grossing music acts and to get their guesses on which ones will be bringing in the biggest buckets of cash over the next five years.

Fascinating. Britney’s out, Alicia’s in. Usher’s in, Eminiem’s halfway out. Thanks for the shocking news boys.

Read the article. The top ten include Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, OutKast, 50 Cent, Kanye West and Dr. Dre.

Flat out I disagree about Beyoncé. I think she’s hugely over-exposed right now and people are getting sick of her and her drama. I think she’s out in a big way. We’ll see, I’ll munch on a huzbond sock if I’m wrong.

And hey that must have been weird for Kanye West to be appearing on the list and contributing to making the list.

Bank machine slots!? Only in Japan…



“Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank is introducing fruitmachine-style games of chance which run while the ATM processes its more mundane transactions.”

Three lucky 7′s waives your transaction fee and three golds scores you about $10.

Holy shit! Why don’t you silly banks save your money on all the smoke’n’mirrors and just waive the friggin’ fees? Shouldn’t you be paying me for my business anyway? I think I make about one penny in interest a year and pay about $200 in service fees.

Unreal.
