Still-Just-Barely-Monday Media Blogging

I give you… “The Pride Of Songun”, a patriotic North Korean anthem to the tune of – I shit you not – “If You’re Happy And You Know It, Clap Your Hands”.

And do be sure to check out the Songun blog itself, which has some of the most awesome writing on the internets this side of Maximos.

Eli’s Obsession With The Google

On the first page of search results for pictures of basic phisiological needs!

Pictures of basic physiological needs… eh, not so much.

UPDATE: Also on the first page of results for moth vs butterfly kung fu movie. That’s pretty damn awesome.

(This would all be regarding my old blog, of course – the new one is still completely invisible to the Google.)

If you’re strapped for cash and need a quick pick-me-up, simply dash off a story about how the Obama campaign is claiming that Hillary had a secret abortion after getting pregnant by her crack dealer, and then send it to the good people at Insight. They’ll give you $800, and no-one will ever even have to know it was you. Swee-eet.

Actually, I call dibs on the Hillary abortion story – go make up your own slime, I’m sure they’ll be happy to print it.

Wanker Of The Day

Colossal Asshat

This colossal asshat.

It had to take at least, what, half an hour? An hour? to trace those letters and cut them out (and that’s not even counting the hour or two it took to sound them out), and not once did it cross your tiny feeble drunken mind that maybe, just maybe, this was out of line? If Da Bears had been playing the Giants, would your sign have read “BEARS FINISHING WHAT 9/11 STARTED?” Okay, probably – but only because you’re a braindead, unthinking troglodyte.

Let me explain: Heckling an opposing player about his momma or his kid is a-okay gamesmanship. Heckling an opposing player about his momma or his kid being dead is way, way over the line. Is that clear enough for you?

I’ve liked Da Bears since ’85, but knuckledragging ghouls like you are not making it easy.

Gossip Item Of The Day

From the Gatecrasher column in today’s NY Daily News:

They were shooting an episode of “30 Rock” with Alec Baldwin across the street, and there were long lags because some skinny guy with sunglasses and a “Royal Tenenbaums” headband kept running around them shouting, “Peanut butter! Peanut butter!” Finally, a cop took him away.

Crisis averted!

And Now, Your Moment Of Zen.

From the NYT:

Handed the ball in the middle of the key, the prince bounced it once, twice, then attempted a one-handed shot that hit nothing but net (literally – the ball peaked about a foot below the rim).

He tried again and sank the shot off the backboard. The children cheered wildly.

“I asked him what sports were popular in his country, and he named some things I didn’t even know,” said Christopher Velazquez, 13. Cricket? “Maybe.” Polo? “Yeah, polo! He said basketball wasn’t very big over there, but he’d been practicing.”

Another episode of “Likely Stories,” the same series which brought us “School, Girls, And You.”

This is actually a pretty good demonstration of the Karl Rove campaign strategy…
