News Roundup! Doch-and-dorris Edition

Right on schedule as promised! Check it out, I'm doing the news!

Friends and recs
- Fred's Epic Tragedy

- Ocean goes "Bloop", ashendi and various scientists blame sea monster. I for one, blame the phenomenon on the collective cry of editors around the world bemoaning the massive typo. Woe!

- blyssfulchaos tipped me off to these. CD for a dollar? NO WAI! Also, Bob Marley's Bassist has 52 Children. That's not what the article is about, but damn.

Write about me, I'm Irish!
- Evidently, Barbara Bush got in on the festivities. Cheers!

- Also, it seems that just like Valentine's day,
Americans have blown St. Patrick's day waaay out of proportion, and into another excuse to co-opt a cultural holiday, spend money and drink a lot. Cheers!

- Also, I just want to say that there are 8 million articles about gays marching in St. Patrick's day parades around the globe, and I hate that it has been made a giant controversy. I'm glad that they marched, and no - I'm not linking an article because I'm really sick of the whole "homosexual agenda" conspiracy, because rly, where is my gay apocalypse? I don't see it coming.

Political Pandemonium
- Dick "Buckshot" Cheney played a one hour set with his band "Dickie and The Trigger Happy Birdie Killers" at Folsom Prison! It's a musical revolution!

- This is a good example of why I absolutely hate boot camps and the Army in general. I have punched every friend of mine who's gone into the service at least twice. That's no lie.

- MySpace conspiring against freedom of speech? A trojan horse aiding in internet censorship, you say? OMG NO WAI! *This video? Hilaaarious. Oh, and before any haterade gets spilled, I told you MySpace was lame from the beginning. Called it!

- Google, however, will not have to disclose what people have been searching for! Which is probably for the better, I - myself - am willing to bet it'd be a awful lot of p0rn, and those dirty old men in Washington (or Pennsylvania, whatev.) are just looking for an excuse*.
*Honey, I swear it's just research!

Requiscat in Pace
- Oleg Cassini dies at age 92. If the name means nothing, think Jaqueline Kennedy. Oh so glamorous.

- Narvin Kimball, the last founding member of the New Orleans Preservation Hall Jazz Band, dies at 97. I enjoyed learning about you in high school, Sir. You were, and still are, oh so jazzy.

Heads Up
- If you live in California, don't eat at Denny's. No rly, it's for your own safety. I wouldn't eat at Denny's regardless of location, but this is *slightly* more important.

- Oi! Minneapolis folk! Van Morrison is comin' to town! It's like a second Christmas!

- Okay, so this isn't news... but it's the best commercial ever.

Entertainment Extravaganza!
- Tom Cruise is still a whiny bitch. It won't stop, but if we're lucky he won't promote his own movie!

- I can't decide if this hat is awesome or awful.

- It's the end of an era for Neverland. Quothe the raven, nevermore.
