Knock me over with a feather

John McCain is having a town hall meeting in Texas, and he has just used Canadian support in Afganistan as a springboard to bash Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama for their desire to re-open NAFTA and their protectionist stance in regards to the US economy. He also thanked Canada for their help in fighting in Afganistan.

I'll get around to a post on the remaining US presidential candidates, but my current thinking: each has flaws, but right now all seem to be an acceptable choice.

Sometimes you are wrong

About my last post where I said something about celebrating a self destructive artist? Yeah, I'd rather that than seeing the Grammys once again show that nobody under the age of 50 votes for these things anyway.

Herbie Hancock over Kanye, Winehouse and the Foo Fighters? Come on now.

Oh come on now

Somewhere, one of the Grammy producers is snickering to himself saying "Nobody would expect to see Nelly Furtado, Rosalyn Sanchez and ANDY FREAKING WILLIAMS to present the Song of the Year award!"

(PS Rihanna wuz robbed. But hey, we have to build up another artist with self destructive tendencies. That story will never get old.)

Demographic: 18-20

The latest offering from Midway: Welcome to Vegas. That's right, you too can purchase a game where you go to Las Vegas to do adult stuff. As opposed to, you know, actually going to Las Vegas.

(Shameful admission: I will probably end up owning this game when it inevitably hits the $10 bin.)

Sad state of affairs

I just spent two minutes watching CGI lizards dance the zombie dance from "Thriller", followed by an anti-drug message delivered by an actor playing a drug dealers. And I'm not getting those minutes back.
