I searched for “Ashes to Glory…

I searched for “Ashes to Glory” on IMDB. IMDB wondered if I was looking for “Asses Galore.” Well, yes, but how is that relevant?

Sad fact: This woman’s vote counts

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

The only thing worse than a stupid person is a stupid person who thinks she’s smart. This woman, a crazy-eyed Virginia voter who is basing her vote on whoever “has the most faith in the Lord” (and that’s just the tip of the iceberg), has a smug, self-righteous look on her piggy face that makes me want to slap her.

[UPDATE: The video has been removed from YouTube. It was from a PBS segment, and you can watch it here. This woman comes on at about 8:30, but start at 6:10 to see her husband discuss his own views much more rationally.]

A transcript:

PBS: What’s the most important issue for you in this election?
TRACY KERLEE: The one that has the most faith in the Lord.
PBS: That’s make-or-break for you.
TRACY KERLEE: That should be make-and-break for everybody.
PBS: And when you hear people saying, “Well, we understand your faith, but what if you’re gonna vote against your husband’s interests as an American worker?”
TRACY KERLEE: The Lord will take care of us. That’s the way I look at things.

TRACY KERLEE: I can’t imagine having a president of the United States named “President Obama.” I really have a problem with that. And I am not the only one.
PBS: Because that means what to you?
TRACY KERLEE: His background. A mother that was a atheist. Oh! That really gets to me. A father that was a Muslim. That should get to EVERYONE.
PBS: And when Barack Obama and his wife Michelle say, “But we’re faith-based, we’re Christians”?
TRACY KERLEE: The church they were members of? That’s not the Christianity I know. That’s not the Christianity that’s in the Bible.
PBS: And so for you, you are firmly decided.
TRACY KERLEE: Definitely.
PBS: And what do you say to your husband, who is still on the fence?
TRACY KERLEE: I will pray for him. He knows what the right decision is.

@gmanreviews RK is stupider, but P&G; is uglier, more abrasive, more generally unpleasant.

Welcome to Tally Hall!

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Have you heard of Tally Hall? Well, you have now. I stumbled across this performance on a rerun of Craig Ferguson the other night, and I was instantly a fan. Visually, their gimmick is that each band member wears a specific tie, and they refer to each other by tie color. Musically, they’re catchy, clever, whimsical, and bizarre. (They also have an Internet sketch show that’s hit-or-miss.) This is their introductory song, “Welcome to Tally Hall.” I particularly enjoy the high-pitched screaming at about 3:15, and I’m sad to report that he doesn’t do that on the album version of the song.

I just tried to write “he wears a tie” and it came out “he where’s a tie.” WHAT THE EFF?!

Saw ‘Pride & Glory’ at Toronto. Glad it’s being released this weekend so *everyone* can see how bad it is.
