Honest-to-God Snakes on a Plane trailer!
New general-catalogue blends at BPAL!

Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog--and a new installment of his advice column.
An Olsen twins advice column?
Why things have been sucking the past several weeks.
Alabama cow tests positive for mad cow disease. Aw, hell.
Cubicle inventor: They're a mistake. Well, it's a little late now, isn't it!
Isaac Hayes Quits 'South Park' because they made fun of Scientology. Of which he is a member. And then Tom Cruise blackmails Comedy Central.
Coed prostitutes self to pay for college... and refuses to stop. It's the last line that's the kicker.
(You know, it's not even so weird that I tagged this entry with "whores"; it's that I already had a "whores" tag.)
The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, adapted for frat boys.
AUGH, DONALD, WTF?
I'm way behind on this, but... heard about the Bill Napoli thing yet?
particle_person: "Okay, this is worth noting: Wal-Mart enlists bloggers in its P.R. campaign. They send around glorified press releases to bloggers, who in some cases pass the information on without noting where it came from. I suspect this is more of a problem for the conservative part of the blogsphere at the moment (because that half is more business-friendly), but it won't be long before it's a problem for all of us. Also, Wal-Mart is apparently not the only company to do this."
krazycat: "Rock band Foo fighters are supporting Alive & Well, an organisation that not only claims that there are no real link between HIV and AIDS, but also that HIV medication in fact causes AIDS, and people shouldn't be taking them. The so-called evidence of the group has been refuted time and time again, and the fact that the band are performing shows where the organisation gets to speak to young and easily influented people really upsets me. A couple more links about it in my lj."
anne_jumps: "Would you mind linking to this ("Planned Parenthood Denounces Harmful Changes in Regulation of Health Insurance; Senate Bill Would Eliminate Health Care Benefits for American Women, Including Coverage for Contraceptives")?" Full bill text here ("because it's apparently possible that PP is kind of overstating the possibilities with regard to interpretation").
kira002: "Hey Cleo, next time you feel the urge to pimp, would you post this for me? I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to get the information I need. I volunteered to beg for swag for LilBro's upcoming Rock Lottery (now expended to 3 nights!), but I'm not quite sure where to go for the begging. My Rolodex is more film-oriented than record label-oriented. Is there a place like IMDb Pro but for music? And, if I'm going to contact the labels "cold turkey", what's the best way to approach them? Rock Lottery proceeds go to charity while the swag will be used for door prizes. Last year, the first annual Rock Lottery, featured door prizes of... t-shirts and hats from LilBro's beer vendors. We'd like to get some good stuff this year."
