Oh Great And Powerful Magic 8 Ball

I have to admit, I stole this gadgets idea from gs.scooter at Pure and Easy. Now think of any question, and click on The Magic 8 Ball for your answer...

I *Heart* Mia Culpa

I have been a fan of Diane (formerly the famous Desi) of Mia Culpa for awhile now. I have to say a big THANK YOU to her for adding my humble site to her blogroll.

So please stop by her place and add it to your blogrolls, if you already haven't... speaking to you there Atrios!

Indiana Must Be So Proud

I know Muncie as the home of Ball State University, fun parties, and where close family lives. It seems soon it will be home to one of the worst ideas I have ever heard for a reality show. From WANE Tv:

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) Erik Estrada, La Toya Jackson, Jack Osbourne and other celebrities are training as reserve police officers in Muncie as part of a new reality show. Muncie Police Chief Joe Winkle issued uniforms to the recruits yesterday. He says the celebrities must undergo training and meet the same standards as other reserve officers. They'll carry guns, but won't answer emergency calls on their own. Estrada, the former star of the TV show CHiPs, appeared in VH1's "Surreal Life" celebrity reality series in 2004. Jack Osbourne, son of rocker Ozzie Osbourne, appeared on the MTV reality show "The Osbournes." Others in the show are Wee Man, a 4-foot-7 skateboarder from the M-T-V show "Jackass," and former WWE professional wrestler Trish Stratus.

Must. Tease. Relatives. NOW!

Today's Must Watch Video

The always entertaining Penn and Teller. Since this is about the war on drugs, I will let you know that I think marijuana should be illegal.
Thoughts? Oh and I dunno how long this video will stay up... it screams copyright infringement.

Well It Didn't Break

I switched the blog over to Blogger Beta, because they hound you to change!!! I kid, it said it was ready so I thought I would try it. I kinda hoped it would break something, I am getting bored of this layout and I am itching to try something new.

OJ Simpson In The News

Roxanne had a brilliant idea on how the money from OJ's book "If I Did It" can do good... check it out!

Dear Judith Reagan:
I'm leaning towards believing your explanation for why you would publish that murderer's confession. Please consider putting your money where your mouth is and donate ALL NET PROCEEDS from the sale of OJ Simpson's book to organizations that help women escape from living in abusive relationships.

[If you agree, please send an email in support of this idea to Regan in care of the NY Post.]

I sent an email, it sounds good to me. Speaking of Fox News, it seems some stations are going to refuse to broadcast Mr. Simpson's interview... from the New York Times:

Showing that attempts at corporate synergy can sometimes backfire, several affiliates of Fox Broadcasting said they would not show the network’s two-part interview with O. J. Simpson next week.

Pappas Telecasting Companies, which owns four Fox affiliate stations in Nebraska, Iowa and California, informed Fox on Friday morning that their stations would not be broadcasting the interview, according to Dennis J. Davis, the president of Pappas. Lin Broadcasting, which owns five Fox affiliates, also will not be showing the program, the New York Daily News reported on Saturday.

The heavily promoted interview, to be aired in two parts on Nov. 27 and 29, will coincide with the Nov. 30 release of Mr. Simpson’s book, “If I Did It.” According to Judith Regan, who is both publishing the book and conducting the interview, the book is Mr. Simpson’s confession to the murders of his ex-wife and her friend, for which he was acquitted in 1994.

Now silly me, when I first read the headline, I thought that they were refusing to show The Simpsons... boy was I wrong!

In more Fox News news (heh), it seems they are working on making their news more fake... from the Raw Story:

Fox News Channel might air two episodes of a "Daily Show"-like program with a decidedly nonliberal bent on Saturday nights in late January, with the possibility that it could become a weekly show for the channel.

The half-hour show is executive produced by "24's" Joel Surnow and Manny Cota and creator Ned Rice, who previously wrote for "Politically Incorrect" and "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" through This Just In Prods. It would take aim at what Surnow calls "the sacred cows of the left" that don't get made as much fun of by other comedy shows.

"It's a satirical news format that would play more to the Fox News audience than the Michael Moore channel," Surnow said. "It would tip more right as 'The Daily Show' tips left."

So Hard To Say Goodbye

Even though the election made me very happy, I am still not in a posting mood.

My other blog, Loaded Mouth is shutting down this weekend, so I am saying my goodbyes and farewells there. This will be my only blogging home, which is probably for the best!

If you know LM, stop on by and say goodbye to tas. I will return here soon, hopefully. Take care of yourselves while I am away. :)

Donnelly Won

It was nice to vote for someone and to have that vote be part of the majority to elect that person to Congress. I am not quite sure how the election ended for our statehouse in Indiana, but it is nice to see a new majority in the US House of Representatives.

And I am taking the bet that the Virginia recount will make Florida 2000 look like a cakewalk.

I hope you all voted too, no matter if you agree with my vote or not. Voting is a birthright, and people died to give it to us. The least we can do is fill out a silly ballot...

Let Freedom Ring.

Election Can't Come Soon Enough

Oh please make the hurting stop! I am sick and tired of the ads, sick and tired of the spin, sick and tired of it all.

Remember to vote next Tuesday, and we can celebrate getting through another election cycle that night!

The Daily Show summed up that idiot Kerry nicely... here it is in bad video but you get the point.
