Iraq, the new South Central

Sunday, October 31st, 2004

From another article about the dire situation in Iraq:

At one point in Ramadi last week, while U.S. soldiers were negotiating with the mayor (who declared himself governor after the appointed governor fled), two insurgents rode by shooting AK-47s—from bicycles.

Good thing we got those damned WMDs or this wouldn’t have been worth it.

Another day, another fire

Thursday, October 28th, 2004

Wow, Miami is burning down. This time it’s Little Havana that’s being consumed. I jumped out of the car to get better pics, see how much I care about you worms guys?

The kids in the foreground of this pic were hoping the fire engines would hurry in and put out the flames so they could loot the shiny seashells and other valueless trinkets from the burned-out husk of the shanty:

West Elm’s shitty furniture

Wednesday, October 27th, 2004

Those of you drawn in to the ridiculously affordable modern bedframes from West Elm ought to beware: many owners are reporting that they break within a few months of purchase.

Good image editing program

Monday, October 25th, 2004

DCE is a simple and mostly automatic image retouching program. It does a better job automatically than my lame ass can do with Photoshop on a camphone image. Try it out. There’s a free evaluation.

Bill Kamal, CHICKEN HAWK!

Monday, October 25th, 2004

Just the facts. Well I guess that confirms it: he’s gay!

AND A PEDOPHILE!

I’m sorry, that was terrible. For those who aren’t aware, Bill Kamal is a fairly prominent weatherman on WSVN 7, a station not without its share of interesting personalities, including the outrageous lesbian Belkys Nerey, the homicidal drunk driver Rick Sanchez and, of course, that hunky guy who wears stripped shirts on Deco Drive.

Update: Read the post-lockup interview with Billy Boy Banger Kamal

Ashlee Simpson, so busted

Sunday, October 24th, 2004

It’s all over the Web, but I feel an uncontrollable urge to post it again. Ashlee Simpson busts herself lipsyncing on Saturday Night Live. (Right click and download; 3M .WMV file; use Windows Media Player, VLC doesn’t work)

Pawnshop

Sunday, October 24th, 2004

I have to admit that recently Pawnshop has been pretty dead despite my repeated drunk text messages imploring people to show up. But last night, mercifully, people decided to come out and it was packed and beautiful. What a relief.

Haircut

I love getting my haircut, even if I sometimes turn out like a character in Akira:
