TEN FOR KEN: Kevin Holtsberry's got a brief interview with Layne. Sex-oriented material is non-existent, so Dawn's job is safe! (Via Team Bleah)

DAILY SNOOZE: Leave it to a newspaper to boil down Tony's blog to a one-sentence description and just suck the very life right out of it:
Los Angeles-based tonypierce.com uses his to hold forth about the Lakers, his former girlfriends and tennis pro Anna Kournikova.
Cripes! I'm all for more of the bloggish publicity, but this dude's got a fine career ahead of him in the exciting world of Microwave Instruction Manual Writing!

GOOGLICIOUS: We all know that Tony said "jump!" and we said "how high?" and now his ass is No. 12 on Google's Tony charts. But, even more interesting is that Treacher's Jell-O experiment has jumped to No. 8! Also interesting is that he's lookin' right up the Bermuda shorts of No. 7, our good friend Lileks and his Gallery of Regrettable Food, Jell-O Division!

BLOGGERS, BLOGGERS, EVERYWHERE: A big ol' shout out to my favorite Blogger-from-the-Center-of-the-Universe Amy Langfield for getting herself into the By-God New York Times today! And she's writing about ... bloggers!

DAWN'S SPAWN: You might think that there's already enough sex on the Internet. You would, of course, be wrong. And quite possibly in need of some therapy. So go here and get some!

MOM! TONY CALLED ME A GIRL! Sorry, Mr. Tony, I ain't no girl! Not that there's anything wrong with that!

THAT'S THE WAY THE BLOGOSPHERE JUDICATES: So Tony has got this new proposal. Seems that Tony is No. 20 when you do a Google search for "Tony," and if enough people link to Tony to get him to be the No. 1 Tony by July 9, he (Tony, that is) won't pull the plug on the blog (Tony's). Doable! I mean, criminy! Y'know Treacher's little Jell-O judicates experiment thing? Google "Jell-O." Whaddaya see? Yep! No. 17! In five days! And it's not just No. 1 for "judicates," it's also Nos. 2-18! Seems to me we can put our good pal Tony in the top Tony spot in no time. Let's work the problem, people!

LET 'ER RIP: Whatever ya think about the Chicks from Dixie, the fact they're getting lyrics like this on country radio is a good thing.
We listen to the radio to hear what’s cookin’
But the music ain’t got no soul
Now they sound tired but they don’t sound Haggard
They’ve got money but they don’t have Cash
They got Junior but they don’t have Hank
I think, I think, I think

S'pose anyone's listening in Nashville?

(Song's by Darrell Scott and Tim O'Brien. For all you rednecks, RealAudio clip of their version here.)
