One of the most sublime commentaries made on the bong/Phelps/Kellogg’s fiasco (2 mins):

SNL – Really?!? – Michael Phelps, 02/07/2009

It’s all so damn good that I transcribed the last bit:

“…and if you’re at a party and you see Michael Phelps smoking a bong and you’re first thought isn’t ‘wow I get to party with Michael Phelps’ and instead you take a picture and sell it to a tabloid you should take a long look in the mirror because you’re a dick, I’m mean really.”

Reposted with full image as twitpic crunched it.

Over the past couple of months I’ve been taking inventory of the various ways in which I communicate, whether is be for myself to keep track of news and information (on NetVibes), externally through tweets, Facebook updates, NYGrapes updates, dojo updates, or this blog.  In short, while I hope to keep this site fresh, you are more likely to catch what I’m thinking about or doing via my Facebook (which is connected with Twitter) feed.  As the song goes (name that band!), “Time is the measure before it’s begun, Slips away like running water…” and I’m just out of time to write down at-length prose on all of the various topics I’m interested in.

So, if you know me (and by know I mean more than just we met once and/or we’ve communicated more than once since we were in highschool), have a look for me on Facebook.  Better yet, rather than pseudo-conversationalism through blogs, tweets, and the like, just pick up the phone and call.  Cheers.

The chicken crossed  the road because it was time for CHANGE!


My friends, that  chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in  cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the  road.


When I was First  Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This  experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure — right from Day One! —  that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross  the road.  But then, this really isn’t about me…….


Although I voted to  let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road  to cross, and I was misled about the chicken’s intentions. I am not for it  now, and will remain against it.


We don’ t really  care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken  is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or  for us. There is no middle ground here.


Where’s my  gun?


Now to the left of  the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken  crossing the road…


I did not cross the  road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of  chicken?


Well, I understand  that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this  road. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take  falls, which is a part of life, I’m going to give this chicken a car so  that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest  of the chickens.


I have just released  eChicken2008, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file  your important documents, and balance your check book. Internet Explorer  is an integral part of the Chicken. This new platform is much more stable  and will never cra…#@&&^(C% ………  reboot.


Did the chicken  really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the  chicken?


To die in the  rain.  Alone.


Why are all the  chickens white? We need some black  chickens.

Interesting article in the NYTimes about private jet interlopers…those who are the passengers in the lap of other people’s luxury travel.

Classic, classic, classic comedy skit by Jim Breuer:

Auditory wonders await with your headphones…awesome!  Thanks to Malcolm Twist for sharing.

A favorite book/character of my older daughter and catching some good press in the NYTimes too:

Some outstandingly outlandish requests:

TSG Backstage: Iggy Pop

  • Bob Hope Impersonator
  • Pauillac from ’86, ’89 or ’90
  • BMW K1200 RS SE motorbike

And this time, he (or some one resembling him) is in the Netherlands, working for the Nobel Foundation to match young creatives with charities and non-profits:

Good ol’ Titanium white…
