Palin Grants Exclusive Interview

Bummed that Sarah Palin won't talk to the media? Ask her a question yourself.

You know, earlier we joked that SNL's writers had it too easy with Palin. After seeing this, we realized something scarier: Sarah Palin fails the Turing test.

What's Tina Fey Worth?

A heckuva lotta hits on this blog! Seriously, ever since she started protraying Sarah Palin, the random pics of her posted over the years have generated hundreds-thousands of hits a day around here. Portfolio's got it dead-on: Sign this woman to a movie deal!

Beautiful photos of antique bikes, industrial equipment, and what-nots. Especially like this iron umbrella stand for no particular reason.

Burn After Reading

This movie is comic genius. Also, Brad Pitt gets shot in the face.

Apple + Nike DRM

We're suckers for the Steve Jobs Reality Distortion Field. We have no problem going into hock for a new iMac and we're drooling for one of those new candybar iPod nanos. But we draw the line at this: Nike+iPod Sport Kit will be electronically tied to Nike-branded clothes. To explain, the Nike+iPod Sport Kit is a kind of pedometer for your iPod that uses a little chip you can drop into a pair of shoes--Nike of course makes shoes with a hiding place for the chip. Sounds fine, since your iPod is with you anyway when you work out/go for a run, but now Apple plans to link your iPod to your Nike shoes to an RFID in your Nike pants or jacket, ostensibly so that no one can steal your iPod or Sport Kit. But also so that you can only run in Nike brand pants. Wtf?
