What is Cantwell thinking?

Apparently one of our local senators, Maria Cantwell, is opposed to eliminating the tax break for hedge fund managers, who despite six-figure salaries only pay 15% tax.  But there’s no justification for maintaining this tax break.  So why does she support its continuation?

For the love of God

From Supertouch blog, see how Damien Hirst’s bling masterpiece for the love of God  (pictured below) was made. I’m sure I’m supposed to be offended by the ostentatiousness of it all, but I actually think this is kinda cool.  Not that I’m ever going to afford it, of course.

Shitscared!

The trailer for the upcoming movie Hot Rod reminded me of the sketch “Shitscared” from the old Late Show series that aired in Australia in the early 90’s. I found this clip on YouTube, and I’d bet that these 6 minutes are funnier than the entire movie. Enjoy.
