More on Palin’s interviews

Osama bin Laden must be laughing his ass off

Osama bin Ladin must be laughing his ass off. Not only is he still on the loose, but, for the cost of a couple of dozen box cutters and flight lessons for a half-dozen suicidal volunteers, he’s made the U.S. the laughing stock of the entire planet. Of course, he didn’t do this alone: he’s […]

“Expelled” Redux

Duped from Ethics Gradient. They’ve started advertising the DVD version of that infernal, mendacious, highly offensive, wilfully ignorant and misleading waste of megabytes known as Expelled.

Meet the next Vice-President of the U.S. (beauty pageant video)

Yes, I overstated things in the headline, but it could happen if Americans don’t wake up and get their butts out to the polls.   Speaking of butts, here’s a peek at the person who might become the next Vice-President of the United States.    I have nothing to add to this video. Just watch and learn […]

James Taylor’s “Covers”: Live studio recording with the entire band.

James Taylor will be releasing his new CD, “Covers,” tomorrow.   I’m in.  In my opinion, James Taylor is an incredible musician who surrounds himself with incredible musicians. Like all geniuses, he’s reinvented himself several times along the way, and he’s been cranking out hits for almost 40 years. Anyone who has spent time playing Taylor’s […]

How to Build a Solar Car

This past Saturday afternoon, after doing my dance duty at the annual “Dancing in the Street” at Grand Center, across from Powell Symphony Hall, I wandered the booths of the adjacent “Green Homes and Renewable Energy Festival” going on in Grandel Square behind the stage. There were plenty of solar panels, windmills, composters, insulation plans, […]

walls fall down

The world seems to have gone mad. Not really of course, but it there are times it feels that way, what with the financial meltdown, an incredibly bizarre VP choice, and the finality of no more WAMU commercials, ever.  Crazy times. Scary times.  Periodically I look out my window to see if the Mississippi has […]
