Saturday Stuff

As a tribute to World AIDS Day today, I give you the following (this came in first place in a video contest sponsored by Chevron)...

Update 12/2/12: Sorry I forgot to mention earlier that watching the first vid kicks off a play list, but I'm sure they're all good.

...and I guess I can’t put this off any more, so here we go again – oy.

Friday Stuff

(I also posted here.)

Yeah, I’m trying to put off the whole “chestnuts roasting on an open fire” bit for a little while longer, but Martin Bashir puts the whole Fix Noise “War on Christmas” thing in perspective here…

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

…and yeah I know – FISCAL CLIFF FISCAL CLIFF FISCAL CLIFF FISCAL CLIFF FISCAL CLIFF!!! But I still liked this from Jon Stewart anyway (for what it’s worth, just go over the damn “cliff” already and pass tax cuts for all but the rich next year)…

…and yeah, can you say “Mississippi health care disaster” (here)…

…and I haven’t put up an indie video for a little while (hung up on the “Boomer” stuff a bit I know), so let me put that right here.

Thursday Stuff

After watching this from Stephen Colbert, I guess I should have included last night’s Elvis Costello video tonight instead (I give you the Fix Noise mentality, or what passes for one, on display…men are supposed to “trust our leaders,” and thus surrender, and women are supposed to surrender to men who do – ah, life inside the bubble)…

…and I’m sure he rocked it at the “big joint” tonight, as Pierre Robert likes to call it (heh).

Wednesday Stuff

I give you the U.S. House Repugs and their commitment to “diversity” (or “binders full of” – well, something)...

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

...and I realize that this tune could fit it multiple ways when talking about this bunch, and I think it does again here.

Tuesday Stuff

At this moment, I can’t think of another seven-minutes-and-a-few-seconds out there that does a better job of of laying utter waste to any pretense of Beltway media objectivity than this clip (here)...

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

...and I find myself utterly numb as I watch this (here) – maybe adding this link can help in some small measure...

...changing the mood in a big way, this week marks the 70th anniversary of the debut of “Casablanca”...I’ll leave it up to you if you want to find the clip of the climactic airport scene...

...and on this day in 1967 (well, yesterday actually), TV viewers turned on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and saw this.

Monday Stuff

Time to stand some of that dreaded “conventional wisdom” right on its pointed little head (here...soooo, instead of all of this Beltway jabbering about austerity, how about some seed funding to help fund the “pipeline” noted in this story?)...

...and I have to admit that I got a kick out of this (oh, and speaking of the High Court of Hangin’ Judge JR...well, as noted here, you really didn’t think they were going to consider the Affordable Care Act to be “settled law,” did you?).

And speaking of the Stones, this is a great production.

Sunday Stuff

So you really want to split, “Tejas” (here)? K.O. tells us why you might want to reconsider...

...and part of me just wants you to leave already, but here’s a tune that also captures how I feel I guess.
