dead men tell no tales...

...and drink no wine, and are therefore no good at parties

A few random bits...

I may like beer, but I doubt I could pay $130 for one, even if it is 25% ABV... Eric, isn't this your model car? And by "this" I mean "the most stolen car in the U.S. last year." Ouch. Slate has an article about Spielberg's War of the Worlds and the invocation of images of 9/11 throughout. The article argues for the film's handling of this imagery, but seems to completely ignore the most important fact... that movie sucked. Long, and hard... it sucked. Finally, I leave you with a quote from ESPN's John Clayton regarding my beloved 49ers:
The expectations of the 49ers aren't high. Coach Mike Nolan inherits a team at the bottom of the league's talent scales. He's switching to a 3-4 scheme, a tough transition for a team that had been drafting for a 4-3 strategy. The franchise that once boasted Jerry Rice and John Taylor has the least known receiving corps in football. The hope of the franchise is first overall choice Smith. Figuring this will be another double-digit season for losses, the 49ers have the luxury of having Smith go out as a rookie and take his lumps. He's mobile. He's fiery. He's talented. He's also going to get hit a lot this year.
Fuck off. We're going 7-9 goddammit.
