Damon Ways In

I guess it’s safe to say Damon Wayans is not a fan of President Bush or Operation Iraqi Freedom…

“I’ll send my sons if he sends his daughters,” Wayans told the crowd… at Tom Joyner’s Family Reunion in Disneyworld. “Put those two drunk bitches on a plane and let them go fight. At least I know my sons would be getting some on the way.” By way of White House reaction, First Lady Laura Bush’s press secretary, Susan Whitson, gasped yesterday and told me: “I wouldn’t dignify that with a response.”

Mwahahahahahaha… Now I might have to start watching his show or something.

Curious George Gives Hitler The Slip!

This is a rather surreal juxtaposition…

Curious George is every 2-year-old sticking his finger into the light socket, pouring milk onto the floor to watch it pool, creating chaos everywhere. One reason the mischievous monkey is such a popular children’s book character is that he makes 4- to 6-year-olds feel superior: fond memories, but we’ve given all that up now.

(snip)

…[I]n truth, “Curious George” almost didn’t make it onto the page. A new book, “The Journey That Saved Curious George: The True Wartime Escape of Margret and H. A. Rey” (Houghton Mifflin), tells of how George’s creators, both German-born Jews, fled from Paris by bicycle in June 1940, carrying the manuscript of what would become “Curious George” as Nazis prepared to invade.

His original name was “Fifi,” you know.

More Belated Vacation Photoblogging

As I said earlier, I finally have some time to start getting caught up on processing the photos from my trip to California… about a month ago. I suppose they’re hopelessly stale by now, but I still kinda like some of ’em.

In other photo news, I think I successfully removed a pair of pesky dust specks from my sensor by blowing on them with an ear syringe (thanks to my uncle for the tip), and I also reorganized my online photo album into more discrete categories. Huzzah!
