Doug Fine: Author, Journalist, Adventurer, Goat-Herder

http://www.dougfine.com/ A tentative thumbs-up for a website and related book that have disappointed me. I first heard about Doug Fine through a>, and the fact that I don’t always agree with Kevin Kelly’s media suggestions should’ve been a heads-up. Instead, I eagerly placed Farewell, My Subaru on hold at the library and waited impatiently for […]

News Analysis – Next on Agenda Is Clinton’s Role – News Analysis – NYTimes.com

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/04/us/politics/04assess.html Mrs. Clinton used her final hours of the long primary season to make clear that she would be open to being Mr. Obama’s running mate. If there was ever any hope in Democratic circles that she would let Mr. Obama off the hook with an evasion or a flat declaration of no interest, Mrs. […]

http://www.bravenewtraveler.com/2008/05/27/the-red-pill-10-films-guaranteed-to-blow-your-mind/ “10 Films Guaranteed to Blow Your Mind.” I find it fitting that those whose minds are fit to be blown would consider these overwrought and undergood films to be life-changing. Personally, I found most of them dreary and pseudo-intellectual – meaning silly and unprofound. And after being forced to sit through two hours of […]

http://www.thelastsuppertheory.com/ Another recruit to the tinfoil-beanie brigade. This guy honestly believes that Leonardo put hidden messages into the Last Supper that can be seen when the painting is flipped, and superimposed onto itself. You do know it’s painted ON A WALL, right?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070412/ap_on_re_us/imus_protests_225 L’affaire Imus is yet another “entertainment” non-story, but my reasons for wishing it to be over swiftly go beyond my dislike of the American media. Don Imus is rather a scary looking man. Like a love child of Secessionist Senator John C. Calhoun and Chief Justice Roger B. Taney – both of whom would […]

http://c13.zedo.com/OzoDB/h/5/255139/V1/728×90.gif This regrettable animated GIF is currently blinking on the Rough Guides homepage. “Unforgettable”? “Exciting”?! Clearly, the copy was written by someone who has never visited Switzerland. And did anyone else misread “get natural” as “get neutral”? I laugh at Switzerland’s efforts to add itself to my European itinerary. **BUMPITY BUMP** It knows. See how […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070125/ap_en_ot/people_kidman_1 The Oscar-winning actress, who stars as a Washington psychiatrist who unearths the origin of an alien epidemic, was trying to escape zombielike characters on the hood of the Jaguar when the crash occurred, Olim said. God, I hate it when that happens. My neighbourhood’s infested with zombielike characters, so I can certainly sympathise.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070112/en_nm/soccer_beckham_conference_dc_1 Posh and Becks are coming to LA to be with the rest of the Plastic People. Yawn. I’ve always found David Beckham to be a waste of space. Some of the girls in the office today took umbrage at this, apparently seeing him as a big, walking aphrodisiac. Clearly, they’ve never listened to him […]
