AND STILL, I'M IGNORED BY THE ALL-POWERFUL HONOLULU WEEKLY: My, my! I'm being subjected to "literary analysis!" I'm called "ten times" better than Drudge! I'm the subject of chatter at Tinseltown parties! Stella! Get my lazy-ass agent on the horn!

BLOG OF VERY LITTLE BRAIN: OK. Because we here at the Beam Conglomerate have endless resources and too much time on our hands, we hereby enter Eve Tushnet's contest. So, a. beam proudly presents:

Poohpundit!

NO, UP YOURS! The hyper SuperBitch (hey! her name, not mine!) over at Up Yours has an, um, interview of sorts with Treacher! Dawn! Babe! Lay off the Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs!

LET THE BLOGS OUT! Eve Tushnet has started a contest!
The new contest is "One Day in the Blog..." Send me a few blog entries from someone who doesn't have a blog--yet. Anybody: living, dead, living dead, or none of the above. Possibilities: Bill Clinton, Cornel West, Pope John Paul II, Stephen Hawking, the Pointy-Haired Boss, that Italian cloning doctor, Ben and/or Jerry, Elvis Costello, Ivan Denisovich, David Bowie, Winnie the Pooh. Inspired by Osama Bin Laden and A. Beam. Send all entries to eve_tushnet@yahoo.com
Hmmmmm.

AMY, WHATCHA GONNA DO? Noo Yawk blogger Amy Langfield has found a hole in our site, and it's her! You see, she's also a L.A.-Santa Barbara-Prague compadre of all those other yahoos, and yet, not a word about her here! It's actually deflected suspicion about our identity in her direction! Bwa-hahahaha! All part of our secret plan! Now shot to hell! Thanks, woman! Actually, we're now free to link to her as she has stopped using all-caps headlines and is cutting back her use of the exclamation point. That's our thing, babe! Kaus and I don't need the competition!

Anyways, she's a freelance writer living in the West Village, she's married (Emmanuelle's got pictures here, but Welch and Layne make too damn many appearances) to a Reuters dude, The Reverend sings her praises, and she's got lotsa witty little Noo Yawk stories and other stuff on her site. But she's recovering from some evil RSI thing, so don't expect Instapundit-type productivity, you insensitive weasels!

'THE DAILY DICK' EDITORIAL MEETING!

beyoootiful music!

That's
Layne on the left, Welch on the right, some dude from A Flock of Seagulls in the back. Hey, should we have a caption contest? Got one? Mail it here!

IT'S IN THE WAY THAT YOU USE IT: The chick over at The Last Page gives us mad props (isn't that what the kids say today?), but says we're "little." Hey, baby, it's not the meat, it's the motion!

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT Y'ALL, BUT I READ TONY FOR THE ARTICLES: Tony worked hard for us all night and has come up with some incisive commentary (and, well, pictures) about the Anna Kournikova girlie mag dustup! Watch his traffic skyrocket!

TSO WHAT? I'd like to thank Ed Mazza for solving the mystery of my lunch.

POLL CATS: Both Treacher and Tony Pierce have polls! Tony wants to know what you want to see on his site (i.e. "more naked chicks"). Treacher just wants to know if he's pretty. Now, go make like an American!

UPDATE: Marc Weisblott sends a communique taking responsibility for the above polls (and he has one of his own)! Hey, Emmanuelle once said "J'adore Marc Weisblott" so who am I to argue?

UPDATE THE SECOND: Treacher says Weisblott's fulla hooey and credits Pierce! Scandal!

MATT'S FIRESIDE CHAT: Welch sounds purty good on the radio! (RealAudio) Well, for an evasive secretly right-wing nut sandwich, anyways!
