At some point I may post something real again. In the meantime you have this junk.

Really Big Beer Ad. Good stuff.

Useful Link #4

A video from a band called Matisyahu. It's Jewish raggae. Seriously. And it's pretty fucking good. Seriously. More like Sublime than anything, IMO. But you be the judge.

Bring On the Transportation Season

Winter sucks. I can't ride my bike without getting dressed up like Ralphie's Brother in 'A Christmas Story'. I can't go outside in my sandals without risking my dork falling off. The trees look awful. Birds drop dead. On it goes. These things I accept. They are part of life. I run on the treadmill, dress up before I leave the house, and take solace in the fact that eventually, the dead lawn will be green again. But the one thing I can't take is the transportation blues that winter brings.

Today was the first incident in a series of many, to be sure. Switches will freeze. Trains will stall. Iron rails will catch fire. Beats me, but tonight's delay was due to a station fire. Mind you, these stations are nothing but concrete and steel. It's like water melting. Meanwhile, Bush vigorously defends domestic spying. Is it me, or is this guy the biggest fucking dipshit in the history of political dipshits? Don't get me wrong, I despise politics. But this guy brings out the absolute worst in all of humanity. I wish this were a fairy tale so that eventually he would get his due when a dragon swooped down and ate him in one big gulp, later to shit out his testicles on city hall.

Ok, this has nothing to do with my transportation woes. I was looking for a news story about a train station fire and could find nothing. I got sidetracked, so sue me. A few headlines down, we see that NYC commuters wait for the shoe to drop. As if the weather delays aren't enough, this cock smoking assholes have the fucking nerve to threaten to strike? You know, it's bad enough that I randomly get to NYC on time. Now I have to face the reality that I might get there and be the only dick bag standing on the subway platform?

I say fuck 'em all. Hopefully, Bloomberg flexes all of his political muscle and pounds them for all they're worth. Let's not beat around the bush here. These subway operators are hard to discern from the people sleeping on the floor half the time. The idea that this collection of people can hold the city hostage is disturbing. My position is that if they strike for 1 minute, they should all lose their jobs. Break the union, send them home, and move on with it. Sure, we'll hit a rough spot for a few weeks. But there will be plenty of people willing to cross the lines, and even more to take their places. And we'll never have to deal with this again.

Winter sucks for commuting. You would think in this technological age we would have this covered. I assure you this is not the case. Snow slows down the train as much as it slows down your car much of the time. And striking subway buffoons only makes it worse.
