And that painting is hilarious. Floyd where do you find these?
Steph — it’s a site called worth1000.com. They have photoshop contests with various themes — an endless sources of interesting riffs on classics, etc.
It’s not my article, but thank you I was just asking everyone’s opinion on the topic.
I totally forgot you’d joined the ModCon family, Steph — welcome to the controlled insanity!
As for this picture, blasphemy, I tells ya, blasphemy — RUFF!!!
If you want to see the ultimate in smug leftist elitism, check out Roger Ebert’s blog, where he scolds Americans who don’t travel to foreign countries often (http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2009/03/a_slow_boat_to_anywhere.html). It’s simply amazing to read, a rich man chiding his fellow citizens for not spending more money on travel, during a recession.
And oh yeah, he still hasn’t bothered to write any kind of obituary or tribute to Ron Silver yet. You stay classy, Roger.
Travel money out of the country to boot. Assjack Ebert.
Personally David, I don’t worry too much about the “too much information” or “too much communication” factors referenced in the article you linked. Yeah, Big Brother can find me with my cell phone, but I suspect that he could find me without it. Whistling in the wind? Maybe, but I think there is SO much info and intel out there now, why would anybody bother with lil’ ole me? Likewise, believing that man is basically good (and women are basically hot, but I digress) that more communication will lead to a better world, especially in the impoverished and totalitarian-ruled nations.
I’ve traveled out of the country extensively, and have had extended stays in foreign countries all for FREE.
What I took away from those trips was an appreciation of what we have here in the USA. If you only stay at five star hotels in Canes that really doesn’t count in my opinion.

Words echoed by the mighty Johnny Cash after being stationed overseas. You’re in great company there, Outlaw!
Awesome site Floyd. Yeah I joined the Modcom family.

Can’t wait for “From Russia, with Fleas” to open.
Bones are Forever I hear is a smashing good story, as is The Labrador Who Loved Me.
