Well, sorta … One way in which monkeys are smarter than humans … This is clever and practical, but I’d prefer the Chia Ossuary … Speaking of the dead, a weird guy remembers another weird guy … As for the undead, Al Davis reflects on four score … Truly hideous and laughable album covers, including a celebrated one from The Louvin Brothers (sound clips here) and the eternally creepy early shot of Heino, who’s actually a legend in his home country … Suicide Girls’ departing firebreather FearTheReaper knows what will ultimately destroy America … Perez Hilton, galactic overlord … A good use for peels of an orange / which as you might know rhymes with door hinge … Grampa Lloyd Christmas! … The coolest car company in North America … Wonkette‘s Ken Layne take a hike—a bravely idiotic one … “So there was I, Jimmy Fallon, hitching a ride with Dave Grohl and Uncle Sam to Barack’s place” … A kinder, gentler Iron CrossThese are bad times to be an old boxing champ: witness the sad fall of Rocky Lockridge, the shotgun death of Alexis Arguello, and the strangulation of Arturo Gatti … It took 65 years to get that little piece of paper … Tiananmen Square protest leader Wu’erkaixi is horrified once again … A planting of a million trees begins with a single sapling … “[S]ome day soon there will be a cable news anchor that terrifies white people so much that they will tune in every night like they are going to see a Saw movie” … Prince Charles to “consumerist society”: BTFU … Pardon the redundancy: a Fox News host says something stupid … As The New York Times ignores civilian deaths in Pakistan, Tom Engelhardt wonders if Afghan lives are worth anything either … Arrakis to Earth: ThanksFuzzy Zoeller will be caddying … Proggers mourn the untimely passing of former Crimson Glory vocalist John Patrick “Midnight” McDonald, Jr.; here’s “Lady of Winter” … Fascinating, seldom-seen photos from the 1969 Apollo 11 mission … Heralded ape thespian Warren DeMontague—to whom Gary Oldman once bowed in respect—has scored an MTV show! … Speaking of greatness, “Weird Al” may as well pass the torch off to guys … And finally, here’s the last Pixar review you’ll ever need to read. ∞
