This sculpture is going on display in New York City in April. If you are lucky it will be in a gallery near you soon. I mean c'mon what's better ART than to see Britney Spears on all fours giving birth? Although not everyone is as excited about this tribute to Pro-Life as I seem to be.
"Artist Daniel Edwards intended the piece as a tribute to the pro-life movement.
But gallery owner David Kesting has been inundated with complaints from all sides.
He said: "We also got calls from Tokyo, England, France.
"Some people are upset that Britney is being used for this subject matter.
"Others who are pro-life thought this was degrading to their movement. And some pro-choice people were upset that this is a pro-life monument."
You can't please everyone can you?

A recent post about our tendency to put ourselves in the 'better-than-average' catagory does a good job of crystallizing some thoughts that have been rattling around in my head for some time.
I'm not going to just copy/paste it here, but I really think that just about everyone I know will get something out of it.
thePrisoner (Above Average... kinda)
BNL (the hip-kids in the know refer to them as BNL) are currently recording a new album at some magical location in the Canadian wilds (Toronto). Progress is reported on their website and a podcast (available via iTunes).
A feature of the podcast that I thought was really cool appeared in episode 15. They played an early demo of one of their most well known songs The Old Apartment and a few subsequent revisions. I think the very first version is when the guy who wrote it is playing for the rest of the band for the very first time.
I'm not in a band, and I've had 'band-envy' for a long time, I'm strictly a non-musician. But this was really interesting to hear the development of a song with which I was already familiar.
Anyway, if you are remotely interested by any of this babble, here are the links that will connect the many spurious dots.

If you are a regular reader please check in. Use the reply area or something, just make your presence known. I'm just curious who is actually visiting the site. If you are NOT one of 'the Knights', shout out also, we like to know who is reading this and has no idea who we are 'in real life'.

These girls do, and they made a video.
What have you done for the Pixies?
*UPDATE* This is "G" rated. The girls do not make out. There is no sex. There is no nudity.
It's just a couple of friends lip sync-ing along with a Pixies song. I thought it was, dare I say, cute.

Toby thought it would be funny to remove my admin rights before I took his away as a joke. Of course, I never intended to actually remove his, but he did and forgot to turn them back on. So, as soon as I get them back, I will fix the images.
Thanks for ruining the site, Toby. :(
If you couldn't already tell, the problem has been resolved.

I just checked out this really good interview with Harold Ramis. Unfortunately I had always kinda thought of him as 'the other guy' in some of the best films of my youth. It turns out he's a really interesting guy. Don't take my word for it READ it yourself.

So, this clip is going around "tha internets" lately. Most people commenting on the clip talk about how lame Fred Durst is, and look what a loser he is, blah, blah, blah.
I've had the complete opposite reaction. I've never been a fan of him or his band. My general impression of him was that he took himself a little too seriously. Ya, I probably slammed him a few times too. I mean, why not? That's what famous people are for, right? But after I saw this clip, I just, got, happy! It made me smile. So I say thank you Fred Durst, thanks for making me smile.
Maybe it'll make you smile too.

The last one was an incredible success and really got the site some attention (hello again >>CORPORATE IDENTITY REDACTED<<).
Here is the straight dirt: Thursday March 9th, the LCA awards live from the Disney Grand California Hotel. I'll be there, and I'll be blogging.
It will probably be boring, but the last time I blogged for a boring place, all kinds of hell broke loose.
Actually it was just a little something I saw over on Jerry's site and it made me smile. Jerry is a longtime reader and sometime contributor to this site and maintains his own blog at Life is a bowl of Jerrys. Be sure and give him a lookiesee.

I have for some time held Mr. Kincade in some disregard. I'll be blunt, I think he sucks butt and his work is the lowest form of pandering slop.
So the LA Times recently decided to do a story on him. While they stop short of calling out for his immediate execution by a firing squad, (as do I, please don't sue) they do unearth some stuff about the 'Painter of Light' that makes me think he is just about as bad as I always suspected.
It's a good read.
So, umm, I guess in Europe and the UK, they like, ummm, have a really strong actors union, so like, ummm every show has to have like, real people and stuff... at least that's what that guy at my meth dealers house told me. And he's like, really smart, cuz he's got all these pamphelets about being a vetrinaryan and how milk is bad and stuff, so I think I'm just gonna drink pepsi.

A woman pleaded guilty Monday to attempted murder charges for trying to hire a hit man to rob and kill four men for what she thought was cocaine, but turned out to be cheese.
