A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words... This Post Is Worth $2.50

I'm not much of a photographer but Mrs. MediaBlog LOVES her digital camera. She was a little late to the party because she didn't quite get the fact that you can print the pictures out. Once she realized that she went gangbusters (do people still say gangbusters) for the thing.

I got her camera after doing fairly minimal research. Thankfully, I got lucky and she ended up with a good one. If I'd checked out a site that features digital camera reviews, I probably would have been better served. Don't trust luck. Do your homework at a site like this one. You'll get a better camera and maybe save a little dough.

Trump, You Sexist Ass!


`Apprentice' figure Carolyn Kepcher axed - Yahoo! News

Donald Trump really has worn out his welcome. Bad enough that he votes out the hotties but getting rid of Carolyn is the last straw.

Newsflash, Touperman... That ugly-ass son of yours is no George and, for that matter, Ivanka is no Carolyn. Carolyn is normal-woman attractive while Ivanka is funny-looking model attractive.

You screwed the pooch, bub. The Apprentice has long since gotten boring and this move just moved it ever farther down the list of Must See TV.

Bye, Carolyn. We all know he fired you because you wouldn't sleep with him.

Burn, Baby! Burn!

We've got a wood-burning fireplace. We never use it. It's just too much trouble. Messy too. We should have gotten a gas fireplace. Cleaner, easier to use. Much better idea. We had the chance to get one and decided not to. Big mistake.

This site will tell you everything you need to know about Gas Fireplaces. There are a lot of good articles on how to care for and maintain a gas fireplace, how to buy one and the different kinds that are available. Really good information. Well worth what you're paying for it... Which, of course, is nothing.

No, seriously, it does seem like an informative site. If I'd looked at it before we went with the wood-burner, I might have gone the other way.

Turn Off The Gas and Pull Your Head Out of the Oven

Election Projection - 2006 Edition

As a Republican, it's really easy to get worried/angry about the upcoming midterms. The overwhelming sentiment throught the media is that it's going to be a disaster for the party.

You know, just like 2002 and 2004.

Here's the thing... I've never believed that we were going to lose either chamber this year. Are we going to lose seats? Absolutely. The party in power usually does. What we're not going to have is a bloodbath.

Anyway, this site is where I go for political prognostication on the numbers. It was pretty much dead on accurate on the electoral count in 2004.

Celebrity Duets - Liveblogging a Train Wreck

Little Richard is clinically insane.
If you squint, Marie Osmond looks just like Paula Abdul
Wayne Brady is no Ryan Seacrest. Take that as you will.
Lucy Lawless is hot. Tonedeaf, but hot.
Alfonso Ribero is fat. Not tonedeaf, but fat.
Carly Patterson apparently fell off the balance beam... Onto her larynx.
Cheech Marin "relating" with Peter Frampton? Not even on Fox.
Until now, the low point in Lea Thompson's career was Howard the Duck. Until now.
Jai Rodriguez... Who? Oh, okay. A gay man who can sing... What a shock!
Chris Jericho... David Hasselhoff wants his jacket back.
Hal Sparks... Smokey thinks you can blow. Was that a comment or an invitation?

-interlude - if they piped this thing into Gitmo, Rummy would end up in The Hague-

Michael Bolton sings Sinatra??? I've got chunks of guys like you in my stool!
Marie Osmond calling you "too white" = Osama Bin Laden calling you "too Muslim"

Bizarro Blogporn



We're through the looking glass here people. White is black and black is white. We here at The MediaBlog are famous for two things:

1. Our love of blogporn
B. Our single-minded, uncompromising heterosexuality

Now, that being said, we're devoting tonight's blogporn post to Big Brother All-Star's Dr. Will Kirby or, as we call him in love, "Evil" Dr. Will.

We'd follow you into hell you magnificent bastard!

Fried Chicken George

So Chicken George was struck by lightning.
A lot of things make sense now.

Taking What They're Giving Cause I'm Working For a Living

So my sister-in-law got downsized. Now she's out there looking for a job. Been there, done that, got the unemployment. I'll be honest, I'm one who thinks that it's not that hard to find a job. I really do believe that. It may be hard to find the exact job you want, but if you've got a little something on the ball and you're willing to work then it just honestly isn't that hard to find a job.

One of the reasons why it isn't that hard is that there are a lot of tools out there to help you find a job. The days of scanning the want ads in the paper are over with. There are some really great tools online to help you find what you're looking for. Whether you're looking for an executive position or if you'r just starting out with an entry level job search, there are some great tools out there to help you find the right job for you.

DenverPost.com - JonBenet case collapses, finger-pointing begins

Friends, why do you go anywhere else for news? Didn't I tell you that this guy didn't do it? If you would just cancel your newspaper subscription, throw out your TV and radio and place yourself entirely in my hands I would take care of all of this for you. I would tell you what to think and when to think it.

Resistance is futile.

*Yes, I'm a little late to the party on this. Blogger was giving me fits yesterday.

Yes, We're Greedy

So what's up with PayPerPost...

Is it a tool of the devil designed to take a bunch of naive, virginal, innocent bloggers and turn them into whores? Perhaps it's Microsoft's plan to set up a front company in order to gain a foothold in the blogosphere. Or maybe, just maybe, it's on the up-and-up...

Yeah. Sure, and Lee Harvey Oswald was able to fire three shots in four point two seconds from an Italian-made, bolt-action rifle.

Here's my theory:
PayPerPost and it's founder, Ted Murphy, are tools of the mainstream media. I'm sure that if you looked into it, the financing for this venture is coming from the New York Times, Clear Channel radio and Katie Couric's handbag. The goal? To undermine the credibility of legions of pajama-clad bloggers. I mean, lots of people turn to blogs for news and opinion. When they find out that some bloggers are running ads, why you'll never trust us again! That will play into the hands of Big Media which, as you know, is completely untainted by the stain of money or advertising...

Um...

Okay... It's a theory. I didn't say it was a good theory. I mean, a good theory is going to cost you a whole lot more than $10.50 $10.50 buys you a sort of mediocre theory.

A Change Would Do You Good

As you may have notices, we've made a few changes around here. With Blogger offering some different templates, I decided to go with a wider format. We had a lot of wasted space on the edges before.

Hopefully you like it. If not, I like it and, baby it's all about me!

The People Versus the Powerful

Wasn't that Al Bore's catchphrase back in 2000? Or maybe it was John Edwards. Maybe. Can't be sure.

Anyway, a lot of issues breakdown as a fight between what a self-created, self-defined "elite" believes is best for the rabble and what the rabble wants for itself. Hell, the entire Democratic Party (and the Bolsheviks for that matter) is built on the idea the "we" know your needs better than you do.

To me, that's what the whole tempest in a teapot surrounding PayPerPost was and is. It's a handful of blogging elitists who are actually able to generate a profit because they get massive numbers of hits versus the broad mass for whom the idea of every making money off their blog using the conventional ad programs (Hi Google!) is a pipedream. The elite like the status quo so they villify the entire concept of blogging for profit using the PayPerPost model.

I've said before that I've made DRAMATICALLY more money off PayPerPost than I'm ever going to see from Google. The fact of the matter is that PayPerPost works for the average blogger.

This article
about how you can make money blogging gets that. The author correctly describes this as an elite vs. masses argument.

Assuming PayPerPost's business model works (and I've said before that I'm not sure it will), the masses are going to win this argument hands down.

Big Brother All-Stars As A Tool For Exodus

So there's this Thumper group called Exodus that seeks to cure homosexuals. I guess they use prayer or something. I honestly don't know.

What I do know is this:

Show them a clip of Chicken George bouncing up and down on Will's ass while wearing a green leotard and they'll be out chasing skirts inside of five minutes.

The Revolution Devours Its Children

As gloomy as some folks seem to think the midterms will be for the Republicans (and I'm far less pessimistic than most), the long-term prospects of the Democratic Party are nothing short of appalling.

How do we know this?

They've started feeding on themselves. They've always done this in a sort of off-handed way with regard to abortion, but the Iraq war has made the process complete. Anyone who doesn't walk the line on this one issue is not just pushed off the cliff, they are disemboweled.

Prime examples?

Joe Lieberman and Christopher Hitchens

The Lieberman example is obvious and needs no evidence. Hitch, on the other hand, may not be as well known. The man is a genuine Leftist. Not just a liberal but an honest to Godless Leftist. His one "flaw" is that he actually wants to defend Western civilization.

The bastard!

Watch as Bill Maher and his audience of trained monkeys pounces on Hitch. Hitch, however, gives as good as he gets.

Real Lame... I mean, Real Time with Bill Maher

Little Miss Perky Is Screwed

Yeah, another Katie post. We're in a rut. Here's a graphic showing people's selections when they were asked in a recent poll to use a word to describe each of the network talking heads:



Okay, cancel out the weasel words: Good, OK and Alright. Those don't mean anything. They're what you say when you don't give a crap. How does water taste? OK. What do you think of Pat Sajack? He's Alright. What do you think of meatloaf? It's Good. They mean nothing. Scratch them out. What does that leave us with?

Brian Williams:
Like him
Fair
Informative

Charlie Gibson
Like him
Trustworthy
Informed

Katie Couric
Liberal
Perky
Cute

See? Now, maybe we should be factoring out "like him" too, but that doesn't really change things all that much. What we're left with is the fact that people either think Katie is a raging Leftist or a lightweight. Either way, not what you're shooting for.

I'm no great fan of Dan Rather and I think it was time for him to move on, but I think CBS made a tragic, long-term mistake by going with Katie. Whether she is up to the job or not doesn't matter. What matters is that people don't think she is up to it. Perception is reality. I'm not going to use the word gravitas but... Damn... Used it didn't I? Okay, screw it... Katie has zero gravitas. Zilch. Nada.

If CBS had sense and balls they would have gone in an entirely different direction. I'll be honest, I don't know who that would have been. I don't know who would have stood out from the crowd... But in a good way. All I know is that the Katie experiment is too high-profile to walk away from even when it goes south but is also too likely to fail to have been worth the money.

A Second Chance for Ray Nagin

Here you go, Soggy Buses. You've got another chance. Don't screw it up this time.

Double Standards

Fla. candidate sorry for remark on blacks - Yahoo! News

"I grew up in Alabama and I understand and I know this from my own experiences that blacks aren't the best swimmers or may not even know how to swim."

Tramm Hudson (R)
Candidate in Florida's 13th Congressional District

So let's see...

White Men Can't Jump = "Funny" Film Starring Woody Harrelson
Black Men Can't Swim = Hate-speech from a Republican racist

Sure... Makes sense to me.

Tom Cruise Sucks

Kidman condemns Hamas, Hezbollah | Herald Sun

We were always on your side anyway, Nic. Now we like you even more. Here's a little honorary blogporn!*

*Yes, we could have posted a picture of Pat Sajak since he also condemned the terrorists but, honestly, if I had to choose between Hamas and Wheel of Fortune? Well, it's a tough choice.

Let's Not Speculate

We here at The MediaBlog are firm believers that facts are what matter. We should refrain from uninformed speculation. We should be particularly careful to avoid hasty decisions based on irrelevant considerations that in no way impact the heart of the issue under consideration.

That being said...

This John Mark Karr fellow had nothing to do with JonBenet Ramsey's murder. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

Given the man's alleged history with kiddie porn, he's obviously a pervert. The fact that he has crazy eyes and buttons his polo shirt all the way up to his throat also establishes that he's a wackjob.

With that as a given, it's equally clear that this guy is a wannabe. He WANTS to engage in sick, depraved acts like the person who killed JonBenet but he doesn't have the balls to go through with it. In other words, he's not just a deviant, he's a coward as well. He's probably managed to convince himself somehow that he did it and he's enjoying that feeling along with the attention.

Anyway, don't buy into it, sports fans. This guy will rot in a hole for the kiddie porn but JonBenet's killer is still out there.

LeRoy Who?

The MediaBlog is proud to endorse LeRoy Collins, Jr. for the Republican nomination for United States Senator from the State of Florida.

We do so for the following reasons:
1. Retired Navy Admiral
2. Non-politician
3. If we're going to lose to Nelson anyway, why nominate the crazy bitch?

What a day for CNN Headline News Uber-bitch Nancy Grace to take the day off, huh?

Also, if Larry King's brain is still in touch with reality he's got to be kicking himself for pre-taping an interview with Jon Bon Jovi for tonight's show.

Hmm... Or maybe Larry is in touch with the other side somehow and the wires got crossed a little. Jon Benet... Jon Bon Jovi... It's an easy mistake.

Jumping The Shark

Why did Mad About You resort to stunt casting at the end? Carville and Matalin? I mean, Yoko Ono earlier on was bad enough.

Where's Katherine Harris When We Need Her?

Reality TV Magazine: Big Brother All Stars Scandal – Will There Be A Do Over For The HOH Competition?

While other blogs are wasting your time on terrorism and whatnot, The MediaBlog focuses on what really matters: The Big Brother Head-of-Household Competition.

Clearly this thing was a clusterfuck from the get-go. Not that I didn't like the results (Erika) but the buzzers just did not work.

It's one thing to rig a presidential election but this is tantamount to cheating on American Idol.

Recount! Recount! Recount! Recount!

We here at The MediaBlog recommend that Julie Chen be replaced as host by Jimmy Carter. Unless Peanuts is there to monitor all of this how can we know it's fair?

WESH begins 4 p.m. newscast - Orlando Sentinel : Entertainment

Long-time readers of The MediaBlog (Hi, Mom!) know that I enjoy lusting after local news hotties. I'm only human. Remember when I touted the charms of Miami TV news hottie Martha Sugalski. Well, now she's in Orlando!

Come on, Martha baby... Just another couple hundred miles north! Martha Sugalski and Lauren Phinney both in the same town would be more than this little news junkie could take! Yowza!

Political order upended as Democrats slam, Republicans praise Lieberman - Yahoo! News

The election was seen by many observers as a referedum on Bush, the Iraq war and the global war on terror, but White House spokesman Tony Snow rejected that analysis.

Which observers would those be, Froggy? Which observers think that a Democratic primary election in just about the bluest blue state you could imagine is a referendum on anything other than who the Dem base wants for Senate?

Why does the ditzy (but big-breasted) girl who co-hosts DVD on TV for F/X think that HMS Endeavour was "infamous"?

She's either confusing Cook with Bligh or she doesn't know what infamous means.

Or maybe both.

Corrosion prompts Alaska oil shutdown - Yahoo! News

I'm sick of this. As many bombs as we've dropped oil should be a nickle a gallon. Maybe we're bombing the wrong people. China maybe? India?

Grub's Up!

Family Table : Share More Than Meals : tvland.com

So TV Land has this public service-type ad campaign encouraging families to sit down and eat dinner together. Share the experience, enjoy the conversation... You get the idea. Very nice idea, more power to them.

But... Yes, with The MediaBlog there's always a "but."

Here's the thing... Goldie Hawn is one of the spokesmodels for this little endeavour. Now, far be it from me to criticize Goldie Hawn. I'm sure she's a lovely, if untalented, person. Still, do you think maybe marrying your baby daddy might take on a slightly higher priority than sitting down at the dining room table with him and the rugrats? I mean, aren't we sort of cart before horse here?

So, Goldie, go ahead and jump the broom. I'll get the chicken pot pie started so you and Kurt and the kids can have dinner when you get home.

Tallahassee Democrat - Things To Do

From the serious to the silly, there's plenty to do in Tallahassee today.

Gather near the gazebo at Lake Ella at 7:30 p.m. today for reflection, a memorial vigil, music and speeches to remember the World War II bombing of Hiroshima. The Japanese city was largely destroyed on Aug. 6, 1945, by an atomic bomb, the first used in warfare. The Rev. Brant Copeland, pastor of First Presbyterian Church, will be present. A bring-your-own picnic and children's activities will follow. Call Kathy Chuboda at 383-XXXX or e-mail her at XXXXXXXX@XXXXX.com.

Beat the heat at one of the fresh flicks opening this week. NASCAR fans will get a giggle from the racetrack spoof 'Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,' starring Will Ferrell and John C. O'Reilly. It's rated PG-13 and is playing at Governor's Square and the Tallahassee Mall."


See, here's the problem with living in a college town. There really isn't any middle ground, You're either out there whining about how we nuked people or you're watching a crass movie about auto racing.

Here's my thing... Why would I care about commemorating Hiroshima? I mean, number one, Hiroshima was not the most devastating air raid of the war. The firebombing of Tokyo killed more. Hiroshima wasn't the most deadly, it was just the most efficient.

Second, why do I have the feeling that "remembering" involves a whole lot of remorse and Western guilt? If we want to remember millions of dead Chinese who suffered under the rule of imperial Japan and if we want to remember American airmen who were starved and beheaded then I'm so there. If there is context then fine, but if we were interested in context we wouldn't have scheduled the remembrance for today. Instead, we would have selected the day the Japanese surrendered and used it to remember all of the innocents who were victims of Japanese militarism. Since we're clearly not interested in that, I'll sit this one out. Thanks anyway.

Besides, I'd rather watch Will Farrell running around on a racetrack in his underpants.

Taking It In The Rear



I LOVE this commerical!

You Do The Math

Money earned from Google AdSense: $13.88
Money paid out to date by Google AdSense: $0.00

Money earned from PayPerPost: $43.00
Money paid out to date by PayPerPost: $12.50

I've said it before... I don't know if PayPerPost's business model will work. I suspect that it probably won't. At least, not as currently constructed. That being said, for now at least there is money to be made here.

Also, I have to give them credit for how they treat bloggers or, at least, this blogger. A couple of weeks back I posted a fairly vulgar piece about the idea of casting Matt Damon as Captain Kirk. My next post to payperpost was rejected because they'd just as soon not have one of their clients smack dab next to a post where I think I probably used the F-word about eight times. To be honest, I can't really blame them for that since the advertiser in question sells kiddie clothes.

My point is that they didn't kick me out, they didn't tell me to remove my Damon/Kirk post "or else" and they didn't try to screw me out of everything I'd earned to date. Instead they sent a very polite email asking me to hold off on additional postings until that one has dropped off my front page. I have happily obliged.

Now this is not a paid post. It's just a suggestion to some of my fellow bloggers who have been so quick to lash out against PayPerPost. Unless you get 10000 hits a day it's hard to make ANYTHING off AdWords. PayPerPost on the other hand...

Oh, And For the Record...

I'm not defending Mel Gibson's drunken rant. My suspicion is that somewhere in there he may not be all that fond of Jews. He may have questions about the extent to which the Holocaust took place. He may have learned a little too much at his father's knee. When he's sober, like most of us, he doesn't say the stupid stuff that runs through his head. When he's plastered on the other hand...

You know, I really didn't think The Passion of the Christ was all that. Honestly didn't. It just left me feeling empty. I didn't feel God's love. I suppose I had a greater understanding of the extent of Christ's suffering, but I already knew that intellectually and seeing it presented so graphically added very little for me.

Now, all of that being said, aren't we piling on Mel just a little? I mean, in a week when a crazed Muslim shoots Jewish women in Seattle, in a week when crazed Muslims in Lebanon shoot missiles randomly at Jewish children in Northern Israel do the drunken ravings of a celebrity really justify taking up 90% of One Note Andy's time? Why isn't this a story left to the Pat O'Briens and the Billy Bushs of the world?

Do I really care if Mel Gibson doesn't like Jews? Would it really matter if Jennifer Aniston turned out to hate Mexicans? Or if I found out the Dakota Fanning calls Black people spear chuckers when she's high on crack? Seriously, these people are not important. They're famous, but they're not consequential.

So, can we stop worrying about whether Mel Gibson is kicking back in his easy chair with a Sam Adams and thumbing through his old man's well-worn first edition of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion? Can we at least back-burner it until we deal with sober people who are trying to kill Jews?

Hell Hath No Fury...

Andrew Sullivan | The Daily Dish

...like a fairy scorned.

One Note Andy has gotten quite a bee in his bonnet these last few days over Mel Gibson's little outburst. One wonders if Andy:

I. Has a crush but knows it could never be.
2. Doesn't like the fact that Mel isn't a big fan of butt bongo.
C. Just likes to have the chance to beat down a conservative Catholic.

I honestly don't read One Note Andy anymore. Have you noticed that I haven't linked to him in months? Andy is just so dull. He really didn't used to be. Several years ago he was a daily must-read. Gradually though, the entire blog turned into whining about buggery, "torture", "Christianists" and various other folks Andy is mad at because they won't accept his perversion.
