More people need to read Rabble.ca
I’ve been reading a lot of the post-election articles on Rabble.ca. If you don’t know the site, you should, whether you consider yourself a “political” person or not. (I know that I’m preaching almost entirely to the converted when addressing the readers of this blog, but bear with me because I’m making a point here.) The fact is we all need to be more political...

An excellent post on Rabble.ca provides a good, day-after post mortem on this week’s federal election.

Christian Bale and Kermit the Frog. Separated at birth? Sure, it may seem like a stretch, but the resemblance is uncanny. Good job by Ferd at LiveJournal for making the connection.
You know those days where you seem to have stumbled upon a theme that the universe has prepared only for you? I had one of those days yesterday. For me, yesterday was Zombie Day for me. It started with my learning about the 2008 Toronto Zombie Walk. This event takes place every fall (Sunday, October 19 this year) and inspires a horde to kit themselves out in as much stage blood and rubber body...
There’s also a fly part where Jack [White]’s soloing on the guitar...– Actual quote of Alicia Keys from Entertainment Weekly. Who talks like this?! What’s next? Lyrics in LOLSpeak?

This site definitely fits into the category of WTF. Biz-fucking-zare, I tell you.

I love Merlin Mann. I’m not afraid to admit it. I know that the love is unrequited (for now!) but I just don’t care. Anyone that makes me laugh as much as he does deserves my unconditional devotion. Please. Mr. Mann, keep making the funny and I will keep bringing the love.
