George Shadroui is Not Cool Enough To Be in the Christian Science Monitor (But I Am) 

Today I got a call during class from a reporter named Randy who works for the Christian Science Monitor -- which, despite being run by Christian scientists (a group with whom I have little in common), does a good job of reporting the facts in a relatively independent way. (As their site puts it: " . . . the unblemished truth is freeing (as a fundamental human right); with it, citizens can make informed decisions and take intelligent action, for themselves and for society." Makes sense to me.

Anyway, this Randy guy is doing an article about Rate My Teachers.com and he came across either my MoFi entry or some other place online. Anyway, he interviewed me for a bit after school, and so next Tuesday I'll be in the Monitor. Woo!

Meantime, I emailed GS to ask for that apology he owes the people of East Timor. He sent me this dorky reply:
an apology....not quite. More enlightenment? One hopes
Yeah, okay. Thanks dude.

George Carlin once asked why people who hear voices in their head telling them to kill their whole family actually do so. "And is this the only thing a voice in the head ever tells people -- to kill others? Why doesn't the voice in their head ever say "Go take a s*** on the salad bar at Wendy's!"? I hope you're happy, George.

Thanks to Diane for Japander, your one-stop collection of American actors in Japanese ads. You know, like Bill Murray's character in "Lost in A Bad Movie".. Make sure you watch Anthony Hopkins.


Thanks to MoFi for Kaboom and the other excellent films of EatPES. Ordinary things filmed in extraordinary ways. Fun stuff!

Today I'm listening to: Babbletron!
