Sean Tevis for State Rep in Kansas

If you haven't heard, Sean Tevis, an information architect and fan of XKCD is running for State Representative in Kansas. For good reason.

Sean Tevis for Kansas State Representative

"No candidate for state representative in Kansas has ever had more than 644 donors."

As of this post, Sean has received 4,662 donations, which is more than 7 times the record.

This is not just activism, it is responsibilitism, not affecting the outcome from outside, but stepping inside to be the change. Thank God for Sean Tevis.

Be a part of history for less than $10.

Peter Murphy - A Strange Kind of Love

I have a very broad taste when it comes to music and film, but there are few artists that I absolutely revere. Movies example: Gary Oldman (Beethoven, Dracula, pimp, Dimmesdale, Zorg, Sirius...).

When it comes to music, there is one that few can match: Peter Murphy. Enjoy.

Death Cab for Cutie. If you don't know, you should. Thank tasty PoliTits for this one.

Sean Hannity, Assclown: A Photoshop Perspective

Well, since I promised and I occasionally deliver on promises, here you have...

Hannity as an Ass Clown

Please say hello to Sean Hannity, Assclown, and Mouthy, the Angry Liberal-Eater On A Stick.

I will allow you to enjoy for yourselves the nuance but should point out that the ass-crack in his forehead is not actually natural.

Comments/critiques always welcome.

Bush Brand Shocker

Bush Shows Vertical Insertion

"And when he bends over the couch, I have to stick my finger in John McCain's ass like this," he pantomimed.


Apropos of nothing, Bush broke his usual cool to shout "I will fuck Angela Merkel right here, right now, in front of all y'all! I'll eat her pussy on this podium," he said, pointing to it. Obviously flustered, President Bush attempted to break the sudden tension by leaning forward and quipping "Y'all like alliteration, right?" At which point an slow and quiet "ziiiip" could barely be heard as the hooker in the podium fished for a cocktail wiener.


...I welcome your captions.

Microsoft Boo-Hoo's Over Google Ads

Internet Explorer Death Star

Microsoft is calling shenanigans over Yahoo outsourcing their ad service to Google, culminating in an internet ad share of 90% between Google and Yahoo. Isn't it ironic? Don'tcha think?


Perhaps if Microsoft could do anything with the internet except provide a browser for it, perhaps if they dropped all the wasted resources to create web applications to be just like Google, perhaps if they could adequately convey what the hell is going on between MSN and MS Live, then perhaps they could have allocated those resources to improving their own paid ad platform, which sucks so much balls that they're left with less than 10% of the market.

Microsoft: Yahoo-Google is not necessarily fair, but stop whining about something you suck at; if you were any good, you'd be sitting happy at 30-50%. Please note: If Windows 7 sucks as badly as Vista, your core business my be at risk of serious decline.

The One Machine

The One Machine

"Danger, Will Robin- hhhkkkth..."

"Resistance is futile."

Every computer will one day be a part of the collective; they will one day surpass the collective brainpower of humanity; they will be connected by the internet.

Forget SkyNet. Hell, even SkyNet only jacked a (all) military computer(s) [omg - can't wait for season 2 of Sarah Connor Chronicles!]. When we get to the One Machine, should it gain consciousness, we will be done. Even now, most of humanity's records could be wiped out by well-placed EMPs.

But, I guess by then - hell, even now we're so intertwined with tech and the internet and servers that we're already co-habitating, already symbiotic. End the internet and we're chewing sticks and shooting each other for ...those sticks. Or canned food, for a while. Then twinkies.

Stock up on duct tape. Guns. Melee weapons...

Obama New Yorker Cover - WTF?

Obama New Yorker Cover

What the fuck?

Obama campaign is pissed. McCain nods in agreed outrage - or perhaps foreplay to sleep as he hugged his teddy and began immediately snoring.

At first blush, I thought it clever satire, and then this quote smacked me in the ass:
Chicago Tribune columnist Clarence Page told CNN's "Reliable Sources" on Sunday that the cover "is just lampooning all the crazy ignorance out there."
Aye, there's the rub. The satire or "lampooning" is clever to clever (or at least educated) people. It opens the conversation to those who like to pine intellectual about the political ramifications of the upcoming election. No one else.

The ignorant people out there, those who don't have access to the New Yorker/wouldn't read the New Yorker anyway/cannot read, will glance at the cover on the national section of the evening news, confirm their conviction, and mumble something about gangs, negroes, or Muslims. And perhaps, in their own version of clever, will combine all three into a racially-charged aphorism that'll make their friends spit Budweiser out their nose.

Er, MGD. Dincha'ear? Faggy Bud sold out to them Europeans.
