Because you just can't get enough housekeeping news

Apparently this is on the new blogger now. I hope I didn't fuck things up.

Mostly I just wanted to see what it would look like with the new labels.

Update: I'm not sure I care for the placement of the labels. I will probably have to some template modification at some point, but I don't have time now. Also, apparently the labels are arranged alphabetically, even if you didn't enter them in that order. That's annoying.

Housekeeping

Links are finally updated, in both the Friends and Strangers sections. Some dead or dormant ones are gone. Shiny new ones added. Oh, and if you didn't notice, I messed with the color scheme again, because that's what I do. Who needs substantive content when you can just yammer on about superficial things?

Also, I know I should write a Blog For Choice post, even though it's already a day late (and I say 'should' not because I feel some sense of obligation, but because it is actually important). But I have always had trouble doing things because the calendar says so (seriously, I hate all holidays; in other news, I'm tons of fun at parties), and, more importantly, I'm having trouble forming coherent thoughts on the subject. So it will have to wait.

Dan Koppen likes Playboy, apparently

So I suppose this is really not so surprising, in light of this (sort of NSFW).

Dweeze!

You know how you're always wondering what the hell Rod Stewart is singing about in that stupid Broken Arrow song? Well, apparently you weren't the only one (last question), and now you have an answer! Who knew?

Fuck you, Easterbrook

I don't know why I still bother reading his stupid column. Although I suppose "read" is being generous - mostly I skim to find the one or two paragraphs about the Patriots and don't bother with the rest. But anyway, sometime way back when (I'm too lazy to find the link to it right now), I wrote about his penchant for being a bully and his mocking of science.

Well, he's doing it again (scroll down to the section entitled "Coming Soon -- Drive-Through DNA"). He spends an entire paragraph saying, essentially (I'm paraphasing, of course), oh, aren't science nerds and their silly tools just precious? So biotech companies advertise their products just like any other industry. So the fuck what? God, it makes my blood boil.

You know how Landru wants us all to punch Tucker Carlson in the gob? Well, if you ever see this fucking fuck Easterbrook fellow, I would like you do the same to him. And after you do that, point to his bloody nose and say, there's some science for you, asshole!

Some thoughts

Have you ever noticed how common it is in movies and TV shows to have one character make another character dig their own grave, after which the grave-digger is murdered and buried in said grave? First of all, do you think that really happens much? I doubt it. But more importantly, if you were the person made to dig, why would you do it? You know you're going to get killed anyway, so why not just tell the murderer to fuck off? So they'll just kill you sooner. Big deal. And actually, probably preferable, if you ask me. Plus you've made more work for them. I mean, if someone's going to murder you, they might as well have to work for it, right?

*****

It's not a new idea to notice that Corey Dillon looks like Ludacris. But I don't think I've ever seen it pointed out that Rodney Harrison is almost a dead-ringer for LL Cool J. I think it's a fair bet to say the Patriots have cornered the market on rapper look-alikes.

*****

I was poking around some political websites yesterday, and somehow ended up at The Volokh Conspiracy. This is not a blog I have ever read before, so I was surprised to see that someone I went to high school with is one of the contributors there. (I won't name names, the better to keep anyone from finding this post, but it may or may not rhyme with Willya Bowman.) He was in a different grade, so I didn't really know him. But his locker was right next to mine, and despite that fact, I don't think I ever spoke more than two words to him in the (three?) years we overlapped. Because, seriously, dude was weird. The one thing I remember about him was that he used to spread his books and papers all over the floor in front of his (and thus, my) locker and do his homework right there on the floor.

Anyway, it's always strange to see someone you "knew" way back when become, well, I suppose "famous" isn't the right word, but at least marginally prominent, I suppose, if you can call being a law professor and posting at a big-name (it is, right?) blog prominent.

*****

Oh, and Landru's most recent post reminds me that I need to do a whole lot of linkage updating. But I don't feel like doing it now. I know you always appreciate it when I tell you what I didn't do. So, you're welcome.
