the blue dot

I love this photographer, he makes me want to go hug a tree. I hope we have trees in the future. If we're smart maybe we'll still have forests too. (and polar bears)

The Good American #37

Punching an American flag in certain circumstances is acceptable, but stuffing it in a jar of urine is most certainly frowned upon.

This Just In...

Here’s the latest poll on whether or not we give a crap about polls:

46% said they couldn’t care less
46% said they care very much
46% said these polls are always fucked up

The following handwritten letter was recently found crumpled up on the snowy steps of McKinley Hall:

Dear Lisa,

I’m finally getting around to thinking whether or not I should do something about the stalling Delayed Reactions—my indecisive, slow-motion volleyball team that’s hesitating about what it’s next move should be. Doesn’t matter, I’ll probably get hit by a car anyway. Say, did Godzilla wear diapers as a baby lizard? Because that’s a lot of freakin’ reptile shit to deal with. Cripes think of the formuzilla bill too. Hey my airplane watching group is really looking up since we realized they can’t fly underground as invisible land submarines. Geez, to think we wasted better part of a year staring at the sidewalk.

Been saving my farts for you in a jar filled with pine-scented air fresheners,

Soul Truth: The Martin Luther King Tree

Instead of dragging your poor Christmas tree out to the curb three days after Christmas every year, why not redecorate it in honor of the great Martin Luther King? Now since most of you have already thrown out your trees, I don't suggest cutting down another one just for this purpose--that'd be kinda wasteful. Now, I too have a proudly redecorate our Christmas tree for each and every holiday of 2007.

Van Halen ain't wearing no roller skates

For a band that had all the brown m&m's taken out, refused to wear roller skates on photo shoots, and played Jeff Spicoli's birthday party, it's about goddamn time Van Halen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Lane Meyer: A once great champ—now a study in mopishness..

See what happened to the mysterious Camaro from Better Off Dead

So long, Ramen Noodles Inventor

When our bellies were hungry there was our old friend in the cupboards. When our limited palette knew only the delectable tastes of hotdogs, and mac and cheese, there was also the trusted Ramen noodles. You have carried us through hard times and downright lazy times, when we couldn't think of anything better than slapping the cube shape noodles in boiling water for 2 minutes with a sprinkle of the salt-laden seasoning pack, and our bellies were once again satisfied. You made it easy Momofuku Ando. And for that we give you thanks. Rest in Peace.

Wearing this suit gives me a sense of internalization.

Russian Utopia

Moody music with an air of minimal GUI, this site explores the architectural drawings of urban plans and buildings that never were realized beyond paper.

Everyone's favorite pair of jeans

Levi's jeans in the 70's were more than just denim. They were in fact psychedelic.

Why Magic Poon? Why?
Cause hotwiring cars ain’t no crime in hell blondie..’
But Magic Poon, what about my purse stashed under the bleachers—think it’ll be safe during the thug convention?
Damn girl, you nuttier than a peanut factory

Deaths always seem to come in three’s. Last week soul brother James Brown passed away, then ex-President Gerald Ford, and then Saddam Hussein (although hanging might not actually be a natural cause).

But the most untimely death was that of Rochester, NY’s Spy Bar. Below is a copy of the letter owner John Ritter posted in the (outrageously spotless) bathrooms on Saturday, December 30:

An excerpt from the Good American Rulebook

Rule #172

Always figures out how to pay for groceries before reaching the checkout.

And I’m gonna be high as a kite by then

It's every kid's wet dream. Imagine flying through the air with a pair of rockets strapped to your back. Must own superhero jumpersuit with silver boots to operate. Batteries not included. Some assembly is required.
