time for an update! here are the most important things of the day (if you happen to be looking at the world through a kaleidoscope, like i am).
ONE: corgis on a treadmill? why??? check out this adorable video. i know there are really only two corgis…but are there really only two corgis?! YOU decide!
TWO: iowa contributes to national news? this is definitely newsworthy. iowa state used their carillon to play lady gaga’s BAD ROMANCE. the video is over five minutes long (which may be longer than the actual song), so don’t waste your time watching it. just revel in the fact that iowa is once again leaving its mark on this amazing nation.
THREE: angry man tries to pay his property tax with 33,000 pennies. i love this story so much, but that’s really all there is to it. he went to the treasurers office and tried to pay his $330 property tax, in pennies, but was DENIED. justice? where is the JUSTICE? if you want to read more about this amazing story, check it out here on gawker.
FOUR: oh my godddd, can you even handle this photograph? i love this so much, mostly because of this quote: ‘once the shock wears off, i’m sure she’ll say yes.’ yeah? are you sure? who is this guy anyway? it doesn’t matter. anyway, in reference to this photo, i say mostly because let’s not forget his amazing pants, tan, or tattoos. his dead stare makes me wish he was asking me. but i digress.
FIVE: this faaaantastic gem of a german man, thilo sarrazin finally broke the silence about jews, and said that ‘all jews share a certain gene.’ yeah? cool! maybe we should put them somewhere where they can all be together, comfortably. maybe…in a…camp! sorry thilo, someone already thought of that. read more on that here.
well, that’s that! see you next week for news with natalie!

So I find this motherfucker. Look at this shit. If you’re going to try and look futuristic and all that don’t be a fucking cunt about it. First, the guy looks like the biggest douchenut of the century. I bet he’ll be shaking hands with Hitler when he dies. Is that their “spaceship”? It’s a fucking tube. What’s with the computer? It doesn’t do you any good when you can’t see the fucking screen. This wouldn’t be bad if they were in 3rd grade playing “spacemen” or some dumb shit you do when you’re that age. From this cover this is easily going to be a some euro-pop, barbie-girl, bullshit. That, or a slight chance of being Orgy.
This is exactly as predicted. BULL. SHIT. I’m glad they went with this album cover because it is a good warning to those of us who don’t like shitty electronic music with some weak ass bitch singing in the background. I’m not as angered with listening to this one because I wasn’t surprised at the sound. Predictable. If you enjoy the sound of blood pouring out of your ears, PICK THIS UP!
Okay, this is another one of those things that’s always misrepresented in our media/culture/whatever. Books, TV shows, etc. love to present the 1936 Berlin Olympics in the following manner . . .
“Nazi scum Adolf Hitler staged the Olympics in an attempt to display Aryan supremacy and show the world the athletic prowess of the German athlete . . . BUT black African-American athlete JESSE OWENZ had other plans, earning FOUR gold medalz and showing how ATHLETICALLY INEPT those fucking Nazi skumz really were.”
Why is this representation super annoying? Because the GERMANS WON WAY MORE MEDALS THAN ANYONE ELSE AT THE BERLIN OLYMPICS. Good job, Jesse Owens. But also – good job, Nazis, you kicked our asses in the Gamez. I just think it’s really annoying that the 1936 Olympics are always misrepresented.
PS – There are a LOT of parallels between the 1936 Nazi Olympix and the 2008 China Commie Olympix. Examples include massive cleanups to impress foreigners, huge amounts of money spent to ensure victory in the medal count, rounding up of dissidents/undesireds, and so on.
Communist China = Nazi Germany

well, after that horrifyingly long slew of in-depth video game reviews, i hope this will be a relief.
i forgot how much i love chris matthews until i watched this video. it focuses on bush’s remarks to the israeli legislature on may 15. bush referred to former idaho senator william borah, and borah’s statement in 1939 in which he said, ‘lord, if only I could have talked with hitler, all of this might have been avoided,’ essentially meaning that leaders do not negotiate with enemies. obviously, borah believed that they should.
bush also said, ‘some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along.’ many have interpreted that this statement refers to barack obama, although bush’s reps have said he was referring to jimmy carter.
in this video, then, chris matthews interviews conservative radio host kevin james, and mark green, president of air america. james boldly begins by saying that bush should have been talking about obama even if he wasn’t talking about obama. then he says something about what barack obama should have done, what he didn’t do this, and states that barack obama is endorsed by hamas. the best part of the video, though, is when matthews asks james what exactly chamberlain’s mistake was (which borah referred to in 1939).
and kevin james has no idea.
this video is so worth a watch, it is absolutely hilarious.
