Movie Review: The Corporation

Friday, April 29th, 2005

I really enjoyed watching this movie. Its an interesting meditation on how evil corporations can be. However, its not as reactionary as I had expected it to be. Which was a relief. There were good arguements on both sides, but it was obvious whose side they had. I think I’m going to make sure my […]

Oh, don’t forget adopting a robot baby! Except, this isn’t like Haily Joel Osmand, we’re talking they adopt a small […]

Presidential Blooper Real: He’s Coming Out

Thursday, April 28th, 2005

I found this amusing.
Tuesday in Galveston, Texas the president departed from a speech about Social Security reform to ask if the city still hosts Splash Day.
The remark drew laughter and the somewhat surprised Bush then said: “I’m not saying whether I came or not on Splash Day. I’m just saying, ‘Do you have Splash […]

Topic Du Jour: Hair

Wednesday, April 27th, 2005

Todays topic is completely random. Or is it?

Hair-raising robbery! That’s got to hurt!
People prefer hair shampoo to banks… who could have guessed?
Hair-be-gon… “Honey, that will take care of that ’stach in a second!”
Shave your hair for a good cause
Hairbraiders are people too! It’s an art! Duh!
Hair-care product “grey” markets…. I didn’t know there were black […]

Check out the consumer complaints for carnival. Then compare it with complaints […]
