James (never Jim) Lileks

It’s worse than that, he’s dead, Jim.

In today’s comments Lars and I got into a bit of a discussion about James Lileks. Since I’m looking for an excuse to keep typing to avoid attempting a bike ride in the gale force winds that have hit Threedonia it’s time for a post on James.


Love Gov

This is a decent little video series (5 parts in all, will take about 20 minutes to watch in its entirety). Sensibly geared towards Americans in their late teens and twenties. Very well acted and scripted. Pass it along.

Rufus Breaks Down the CNN Debate

1. These (Wednesday’s CNN debate and the earlier, Fox debate) are not debates. They are networks using their anchors to incite base arguments for ratings. 2. Carly Fiorina did won both debates. She is incredibly quick on her feet and has an encyclopedic knowledge of statistics regarding government affairs. 3. 10 or more people […]

Killjoy is Here

Meanwhile in Great Britain the BBC Director General has to sign off on some jokes – from the Telegraph:

It has produced some of the finest comedies ever to grace British television screens, from Dad’s Army to Monty Python and Blackadder.

Viewers may be surprised to learn, then, about the lengths the BBC […]

They Blinded Themselves With Hatred?

Delfategate? Remember when steel couldn’t melt? Yeah me neither. Science is a bitch. Real science — not the sciencey stuff practiced by the media. Could it be that the New England Patriots will be vindicated by the law of Nature — and Nature’s God? I hope so — not because I love the Patriots. […]
