In one of those “weirdly ironical” twists, yesterday’s really bad mood was both accentuated and relieved by a report on my local morning news that the Ohio State Fair would be opening today, and that the fair’s annual Butter Cow was all ready to go. I mean really, cows sculpted from butter? Life here in “The First World” is just so damned hard! :roll:
But that report did at least remind me of these hilarious Weird Al Yankovic videos… ;)
Have you ever been so depressed that all your thoughts begin to seem like one long, whining, drone? Well, that’s how I felt yesterday, and why I couldn’t muster up the energy to post these great MetalGuruMessiah videos until now.
A friend of mine shared the following video on Facebook, which does a fairly good job of outlining the history behind the Israeli / Palestinian conflict. The problem with this video is that the history it outlines only goes back to the conclusion of World War II, and thus, I think, paints a picture that is not entirely accurate…
I’d like to follow up on my earlier post by piling on some mockery, first of our improper use of language, and then of our fascination with everything British, as spawned by the insane mind of Weird Al Yankovic
I’ve mentioned before what big fan I am of John Oliver and how happy I am that he now has his own “fake news” show, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, on HBO. Well now I have another reason to be happy, both for myself and for him, because the PBS NewsHour – one of the very few news programs I actually respect – has taken note of his comedic genius as well!
I thought I’d catch up on my ‘spacehead’ fantasies a bit, first with some cool imagery from the pages of Universe Today, and then closing with some haunting classic rock from Blind Faith…
This life, it ain’t easy man. I mean, should I attempt to clear out a space for myself in the crowd? Or would I be better off striking out on my own?
Okay, it’s Monday and I’ve got SO much cool ‘art’ stuff to post that I’m afraid my back will give out before I can get to it all. So, just in case, for my first post of the day I’ve decided to go with the stuff that’s giving me the biggest smiles…
And I’ll be damned if I don’t see nails everywhere I look! ;)
