Bob Dylan at Frontier Field

Yes, I was there last night. And I may post a "review" later, but there is actually quite a bit to say and I don't have time right now.

Black Folks Dancing

Cab Calloway and the Nicholas Brothers, from Stormy Weather (1943).

Attack! Attack!

This weapon is sure to find its way into the next James Bond film.

The Flaming Lips at the Fair?

Normally a hickfest, the New York State Fair has decided to host the Flaming Lips on September 1st. The show will likely draw a lot of hipsters, most likely those who are unemployed, given that the show starts at 5 pm. Of course this means I will not be going. I think the demolition derby sounds awesome though. I always enjoy a good hickfest.

Israel-Hezbollah Ceasefire

All is as it was. Draw your own conclusions, because everyone else is.

UN to Declare Truce

I know it sounds like a headline from a satirical newspaper, but the UN has decided to declare a truce between Israel and Hezbollah. Funny, because I didn't know the UN was even in this war. If they can do that, then I can declare a truce between Hatfields and the McCoys.

Conspiracy Theories Debunked

Conspiracy theories are enticing because they offer privileged information, information some people just can't pass up. Unfortunately (or fortunately), most of them just aren't true. Here are two popular conspiracy theories and why they don't work.

What's going on in Israel?

In light of the rather disturbing quote perhaps wrongly attributed to Menechem Begin below, I thought I'd post in defense of Israel.

O the wonders of modern science! Two ground-breaking articles from the BBC about what the priests of our secular culture are up to.

Evolution Reversed In Mice
Amazing! I wonder what they look like?

Sea-bed plan to store carbon
I've got a better idea: nobody breathe for a few minutes each day. (A side note: Global warming is caused by 0.3% carbon dioxide, 99% water vapor. References:1 2 3 4 etc.)

How Popular is Your Last Name?

I was able to guess the top five in 7 tries. Can you do better?

Some Irony For Lunch

"Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves."
— Israeli Prime Minister Menechem Begin

If you can verify whether or not Begin actually said this, I will tell you where I got it.

A Hot Day

Today is a hot day. Today is not the day my neighbors will mow their lawn. (Tomorrow isn't either.)
