Tastefully Yummy! (but slightly naughty)

This is probably one of the most interesting sites I've seen in the area of erotica. There is absolutely no nudity but its not for the kiddies.

Facettes De La Petite Mort means "Faces of the small death". It is a site dedicated to the beauty of human orgasm. Check it out!

IT's downside?

"Workers completed two-thirds of their work in an average day last year, down from about three-quarters in a 1994 study, according to research conducted for Day-Timers Inc., an East Texas, Pennsylvania-based maker of organizational products.

The biggest culprit is the technology that was supposed to make work quicker and easier, experts say."

"The least of these"

We have called it "justice" when the most defenseless among us have had the least protection from the whims of others.

At last there is some hope for change.


In the news...

Ya know, ordinarily I'd be defending President Bush when the press has a hayday with something like this, but when he bugs our citizens on the basis of their ties with certain countries and then offers to give the management of key U.S. ports to companies owned by these same countries, I just have to ask...what the fuck is going on???

This is either the most subtle stroke of genius ever conceived, the true aim of which remains hidden for the moment behind a well-crafted smoke screen, or it is the most crass, unbelievable act of arrogance ever perpetrated by a person in public office.

Honestly, I'm afraid to guess.

Willie's Pooch

In the news, Willie Nelson attempts to capitalize on all the hubbub being raised around Brokeback Mountain with his new song about gay cowboys. He and his label are careful to point out at the song was written back in the 80's - "long before Brokeback Mountain". For his blatant publicity stunt, which is working it would seem, he is being given credit in many circles as releasing the "first gay cowboy song by a major recording artist".

Well, first, even if the song was written a long time ago, which I sincerely doubt, it wasn't released until after Brokeback Mountain got all the hype. Second, it was admittedly recorded last year, when Willie would have been fully aware that one of his songs was going to be included in the Brokeback Mountain sound track. And finally, Willie Nelson is NOT the first major recording artist to release a song about gay cowboys. The Reverend Horton Heat released their thoughtful tune entitled Interracial Cowboy Homo Kinda Love several years back. This was a much more ambitious song which, obviously, took on several serious social issues at the same time. Now THAT is a song about gay cowboys!

Hippo Of The Year

"We would like to send the message to those who claim Iran is searching for nuclear weapons that there is no such policy and this [policy] is illegal and against our religion."

- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad


In the news...

If you think we should allow Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to go ahead and build a nuclear weapon for his theocratic government to wield against his neighbors, then ask yourself.

Would you want a nuclear weapon in the hands of Jerry Falwell?

Episode One: Part Two

One day, a little dog named Sindie was trotting along the Jersey shore looking for something yummy when a kindly old man hobbling along reached down and offered her a treat. The dog, being young and full of juice, took the treat and then ran around the old man three times in energetic and sincere gratitude before sitting down to enjoy the morsel. The man, who had followed the dog with his age-dimmed eyes, got dizzy and fell down, unfortunately breaking his hip.

The poor man lay upon the beach in agonized tears for two hours occasionally feeding Sindie his remaining treats to pass the time and keep a friend, when finally a priest walked by and offered a prayer, "My son, do not despair, for God loves you in your moment of need". The priest then gave the old man a couple dollars and began to walk away, leaving the old man in stunned silence.

Sindie, possessed of a strangely un-canine sense of irony, suddenly and viciously bit the old man in the leg, at which the priest immediately ran back, kicked her away and called for help. To make a long story short, the police, the medics and the city pound all came straight away. The old man was cared for, the dog had to be put to sleep in order to to test for rabies and the priest felt as though he'd done God's will by protecting the helpless old man from the possibly rabid dog.

The moral?

Life just sucks sometimes, goodness isn't always good and loyalty can be a bitch.
