Oui, J'aime blog!
In the beginning
There was darkness on the face of the deep
The links that keep it shinin'

TESTING, ONE, TWO: Helllooooo? I'll speak up a bit so you can hear me over the sound of Alterman and Sullivan sniping at each other. Criminy! Get a room, boys! You're basically the right and left halves of the same pompous git! How abouts ya just buy yourselves a tropical island and rule it as you see fit? Sullivan can run the Church, outlaw all other bloggers and make sure Krugman never gets through immigration! Alterman can spend his day putting the island residents on various lists!Thursday, May 23, 2002
SALON DOT BLOG: Can Salon live without our bloggin' buddies? I cruise over every week or so to see if there's any free stuff worth hoovering up, and I swear, every time I do, some blogger's got the big honkin' lead piece. Often it's Rabbit. Today, it's Megan McArdle of Live ... from the WTC! She's got the goods on the Health Nazis what want to sue the junk food makers 'cause the Evil Clown Bastards turned us all into Supersized-Americans! I'll take fries with that!
I CAN'T BELEEF EET'S NOT BUTTAH: Treacher links to a show featuring Fabio's "music!" Be afraid!
A CLUE! A CLUE! Gotta wee one? Watched your requisite 50,000 hours of Blue's Clues? If you're wondering what happened to goofy Steve, he quit the show to become a rock star! He's here! Fairly amusing site, actually! Can't vouch for the music, but there's a letter taking him to task for his promotion of squirrels over badgers! (Guess that damn anti-badger Mr. Mailbox forgot to deliver that one!)Wednesday, May 22, 2002I will be frank, "Mr." Burns. There is a pernicious influence of squirrel-promotion has kept the lovely, elegant badger out of the national spotlight it so deserves. Badgers are musteline, while a squirrel is frankly verminous. What hath a squirrel that a badger lacks? AAAAh. You ask the chickens about the rain, and the chickens only talk of SEED, is that it? HA HA! Ha! Mr. Burns. AH AAAAAH AAAAAH MOUTH MOUTH MOUTH HURTS HURTS.Also this in the faq:is it true about you and the 3 nannies in indiana?(via the By-God New York Times!)
LIFE, THE UNIVERSE AND GETTING THE BABES: Jason poses an important question in the comments section of this post. So pardon me while I channel Rabbit.
YO! ALTERMAN! NO, UM, STUFFING THE BALLOT BOX FOR SULLIVAN! Dawn's got a poll thingie for sexiest male blogger. A. Beam is not included, as there is apparently some argument as to HIS gender. A. Beam never attempted to hide HIS gender. Although maybe the pink kitties on HIS blog caused some confusion. Sheesh, people! Irony may not be dead, but it just might die of neglect!
THE WEISBOMBER STRIKES AGAIN: My, my! That Weisblott sure likes to toss bombs into the ol' blogtopia! Oh, and if you go there, scroll to the bottom and tell him to change the damn layout, already! Permalinks! And more kitties!Tuesday, May 21, 2002
LAW AND ORDER, SPECIAL REDWOODS UNIT: A new Arcata Eye Police log!
CAREFUL, MICK, OR YOU'LL GET LABELED A TRANS-SULLIVAN-IAN, TOO! The Kausfiler says today:If there's anything this new technology of communication is good for, it's letting agents in Phoenix and Minneapolis and anywhere else bat around ideas and suspicions, so that connections are quickly made, lots of ideas are quickly generated, with the promising ones bubbling rapidly to the top. Does the Bureau not have some sort of secure list-server or chat room where an FBI man in Phoenix who thinks terrorists might be attending flight schools could post something, and learn from the agent in Minneapolis who has Mr. Moussaoui in custody that something might indeed be afoot?Gawrsh! Sure sounds a lot like this May 17 Ken Layne idea!And I've got a simple solution: all those agencies should create a Terror Blog. A group blog would be an easy way for any office of any agency to post the information and get it to everybody else. The blog would be read each morning in the Oval Office, during Bush's intelligence briefing, as well as at all the agencies and offices that contribute. Put stuff in one place and it's very difficult for information to fall through the cracks.
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO TAKE THOSE PILLS EVERY DAY, WIL! "Sexy cover girl" Wil Wheaton is talking to himself.Monday, May 20, 2002
TIME FOR A SPORTS BREAK
REVENGE OF THE OLSEN TWINS: Yikes! Don't piss off Eric or Dawn Olsen! My new Adam Curry-inspired orifice is minor in comparison to the latest hunks of flesh they've torn from their adversaries! Last week Dawn eviscerated an ugly little troll and then ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti! Now Eric busts on Andrew Sullivan and his arrogant blogging ways! Chomp! Chomp!
HEY! YOU GIRLS KEEP IT DOWN! Dawn Olsen has a slumber party/interview with Rebecca of sweat flavored gummi. Caveat emptor! There is much giggling and swearing and many words which will get Dawn all sorts of naughty Google hits! And a touch of nudity. But it's integral to the plot!Sunday, May 19, 2002
