Government in Action
Congress: Anonymous Internet trolls/flamers can now be sent to prison.
Our reign of terror at Black Eyed Peas fan sites is evidently over, unless the Supreme Court declares this unconstitutional, perhaps with an opinion that reads, in its entirety, "LOL." (Scalia might dissent with "STFU.")
Rock crit watchdog Jason Gross' annual Best Music Scribing Awards turns up this gem, an actual fundie Christian Jack Chick tract with new dialogue lambasting superstar DJs like Tiesto. Both profane and highly profound. Sample:
"What we need is Bill Drummond to go fucking semi-automatic Commando on these dutch transcracker pussies." Ishkur.com/articles/trancecracker.php
This Song Will Change Your Life
New from the Flaming Lips: "The W.A.N.D."
A moderately rousing anthem swiping Patti Smith's politics and ELO's instruments, but it's a bad sign when the online fan reaction boils down to "I hope this is a B-side." It'll probably sound infinitely better when you're surrounded by dancing revelers in bear costumes.
Invest everything you have in "Cracked-out Photos of Whitney Houston, Inc." this instant.
More profitable than Google, more ubiquitous than that bunny with a pancake on its head.
