My new favorite internet article -- ever: Lady Gaga, The Illuminati Puppet

This is why the internet rules. If there is 'something' out there in the public consciousness -- The Internet will grab it and turn it into something you never ever expected in a million years.

Here is an EXPOSE of Lada Gaga and her occult/illuminati connection from Vigilant Citizen. It's my new favorite thing.

I'm pretty sure we need a corollary to the Internet Rule 34 -- adding, 'and conspiracy connections made of it.'

Enjoy life,

New band: The Finches

Ok I hesitate to post right off Boing Boing but I couldn't resist. Here is a video of finches 'playing' electric guitar.

But here's the capper -- what made me have to post this.

"the best angular, atonal, postpunk, improvisational guitar I've heard in a while."

Awesome. And a tip -- stick to .46 to see the stick-bowing finch rip it up.

Enjoy birds out-doing Dinosaur Jr.

Great geek out fun with microscopic size comparisons

Here is a link to the University of Utah "Cell size and scale" teaching illustration tool. It's great fun for geeks and nerds alike. Give it a shot.

Below is just a picture of the the flash tool, use the link above to actually use the thing.

Enjoy geeking out in the privacy of your own home,

Daybreakers -- alright ya got me

I have mostly avoided this whole vampire chic thing going on, but this trailer caught my attention on a few levels. It's dark enough, it has no apparent 'tween' demographic hooks, and who doesn't love Willem Dafoe.

Oh, and it opens tonight.

Enjoy the last few attempts,

Whups, Sea Shepherd pushes a bit too hard

Well the chess game in the Southern Seas just got a bit messier. Sea Shepherd lost a ship due to collision with a Japanese Whaler. Bad strategic move there, folks. That ship was a peach, and would have been extremely effective.

I don't know or care who did what -- they're playing with fire down there and folks are going to get burned. I still fully support Sea Shepherd's activities.

Here is an link to some video footage, and the type of vitriol the anti-environmentalist folks sling at Sea Shepherd.

Here's the thing -- the anti-whale, anti-environment folks always rail against the illegality of Sea Shepherd's actions, but not against the illegality of Japan's actions. Japan is blatantly breaching international law and lying about not using the whales for food (which they can't even find a market for, so they put in school lunches despite high levels of mercury). They're international poachers for crissakes. And there is zero enforcement down in those seas except for Sea Shepherd.

When the whales are gone, they're gone -- FOREVER. No take-backs.

Now, is the Sea Shepherd crew a bunch of amateurish, media-hungry blowhards? Well, sure. Sure they are. But I don't care. Forever is a very long time, and that's where I draw the line.
