I'm cleaning my living room.

In November 2004, Michelle Jeff and I went to the Great Big Food Show. I took literature from the food I liked. I don't remember many of the connections now, but I need to throw this literature away so here is a list of websites. (there is a list of flavors on the back of this card, and "blueberry" is circled in ball point pen. I think maybe this was soda?)

I'm collecting ridiculous New Orleans articles.

Here's one from the October 2004 National Geographic, which accurately predicts . . . well, everything. (via [ profile] cinzazul)

Here's one that talks about the lack of federal funding to raise the levees. (via [ profile] hammercock in [ profile] scottbateman's journal)

Here's one that talks about how there was no plan to help the city's carless. (also via [ profile] hammercock in [ profile] scottbateman's journal)

Aaaaand here's what our totally awesome president had to say this morning (via [ profile] scottbateman). Some gems, as pointed out by Scott, but which I would have noticed and hollered about anyway:

"I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees."

"I think there ought to be zero tolerance of people breaking the law during an emergency such as this, whether it be looting, or price gouging at the gasoline pump, or taking advantage of charitable giving, or insurance fraud."

"If people need water and food, we're going to do everything we can to get them water and food."

Mr Bush dismissed criticism that he had been slow in responding to the unfolding disaster, and had not yet set foot on the ground.

"I hope people don't play politics during this period of time."

"There's no doubt in my mind as I sit here talking to you that New Orleans is going to rise up again as a great city."

Maybe it will, maybe it won't, but no doubt in your mind? You are a goddamned idiot. Not, you know, that that's news to me or anything.

And finally, an article that doesn't involve me hating President Bush, and just talks about the feasibility of getting everything cleaned up, Are we being realistic about New Orleans? via [ profile] rjwhite.

Oh wait and also, the Times-Picayune Breaking News Weblog (via [ profile] misterscarecrow).

Due to a mention of game shows that would be fun to do in real life in [ profile] rjwhite's journal, I was poking around, looking for Match Game stuff (oh, and it was the 70s, not the 60s: the 60s version is mostly lost, and the ones they play on GSN are from the 70s run). I found this, which is a description of Brian Billick's (coach of the Baltimore Ravens) appearance on Match Game PM in 1977.

Oh, and he sucked.

I can't remember with whom I was talking in regards to this, but the BodyWorlds exhibit (the one with the sliced-and-shellacked people by that German dude) will be in Philly at the Franklin Institute in October.

Forgive me if you've heard of this before . . . I'm not very hip, and I'm often late finding things out (I don't pay attention to people).

But I just stumbled upon this today:

Shepard Fairey and Giant Art

And I think it's . . . interesting.

In honor of the first business day of Daylight Savings Time 2001, I bring you End Daylight Savings Time, proving once again that there are a good number of people out there with a lot of time on their hands. I personally have never met anyone who has a real problem with changing their clocks twice a year -- sure, you have one day a year with an hour less productive Sunday time, but is anyone all that productive on Sunday anyhow? And you get that sweet, sweet extra hour of sleep in October. And days in the summer that last til 8:30 in the evening sometimes. Eight thirty! My heart grows warm just thinking about it.
