I thought of the perfect analogy of the standard Obama voter this morning. Skip to the halfway point, the start time index thingy doesn’t work.

Just a bunch of seagulls demanding their free stuff.

Ok, as requested this is a Marilyn Manson-free zone. Have a Gaga instead:

Also related, but not disturbing (for us at least): Gaga sales are down

Remember this bit of 80’s oddity?

I seem to recall one summer when I just couldn’t get away from this thing. I think it was used in a bunch of commercials or something. Got real sick of it too. Now it’s quirky & fun again.

80’s Twin Spin!

Now that is a catchy song. Check out the related videos on youtube – everybody covered the hell out of it too.   The Britney Spears version isn’t bad. I also like Jessica Simpson’s take. Even Alvin & the Chip-monks took a whack at it. There’s nothing quite like an auto-tuned chip-monk.

I saw Thor last weekend and I paid full boat for the IMAX 3D experience. Worth every penny. This was a blast and probably the best movie based on a comic book series I’ve seen. No, I’ve never read the comic books, but I am familiar with Norse mythology. You don’t need to know about either to enjoy this one. OH, and do be sure to stay until ALL the credits have rolled. There’s an extra scene at the end that’s worth staying for.

Interesting fun fact about Norse mythology – lots of religions have an End of Times apocalypse-type Final Battle and the Norse were no different. Their name for this battle is Ragnarok and it’s between the gods of Asgard against the Frost Giants. What IS different though, it’s the only Final Battle in recorded human mythos where the good guys are destined to lose.

Product endorsement: SodaStream soda maker. Link goes to Amazon, but I got mine at Bed Bath & Beyond a couple weeks ago. I LOVE this thing! They sell the syrups to make your own sugary soda drinks but I don’t use those. They also have unsweetened orange, lemon/lime & raspberry flavored concentrates that I really enjoy. Or, you can just add fresh fruit squeezin’s to your carbonated water, which I do as well. The CO2 cartridges are pretty big so you get a lot out of them. It’s 30 bucks for the initial one, but if you bring back the empty to BB&B for recycle they’ll take half off.

Another product endorsement: Yomega Dash yo-yo. These aren’t the sucktastic yo-yos of our youth, but better ones with the axle in a bearing that lets you get easy, long sleep times so you can actually learn how to do tricks.

Most people who come here probably already know about Ricochet.com, but in case you don’t it’s another political group blog, center-right flavored. It was started by a couple National Review guys and has a good stable of regular contributors. James Lileks & Pat Sajak do stuff there too. One of the things I really like about it are the weekly podcasts that usually feature Lileks, Rob Long and Peter Robinson. Jonah Goldberg makes an occasional visit and he’s always fun to listen to. They have great guests too. Some content is available to members only, like contributing comments and whatnot. Anyway, check it out if you’re inclined.

My back is all jacked up again and had to take off work today. I really wish this would stop happening.
