Thanks to the disillusioned kid for this - I just had to post it. It was announced 3 years ago but we all missed it...

from now on WAR IS PEACE

"I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace."

George W. Bush, June 18th 2002

There are some new links in the 'Some of the blogs I look at' section. According to one test the man behind disreputable lazy aliens is only 1% different from me. See if you can spot what the difference is. Say hello to the Rev. Billy Bob Gisher and get blown away by weapons of mass distraction. Try and stay unbrainwashed and thereby lose the noose round your neck.

Say hi to sarah and everyone at blunt cogs - which is one of the funniest things I have seen in blogworld.

This episode is about what to do when you get those anonymous commenters

    We're doomed. They haven't even tried to hide it at the site.

    Well wait a minute. It could have been his evil twin. Oh wait he is his evil twin.

    "Bombing for peace is like fucking for virginity."

    Aw, thanks tubthumper. You're a sweetie. Love the post- wouldn't want to contribute to any BANTER around here because we never do that.

    Cosmically, I just used that quote for something this afternoon, and had forgotten about the stupidity of it until recently. Another I like is "You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake"(Jeanette Rankin)
    Blunt cogs... I love it.

    keir - i am expecting prisons to be renamed 'freedom camps' anytime soon.

    Wonderful. Must be part of Bush's new doublespeak program.

    Blunt Cogs is great... kinda a ruder version of Southpark.

Thumping The Tub Video

Image Hosted by

  • How Far Is It From Here to Nuremberg
  • This is my attempt at a video for the excellent, if worrying, David Rovics (see links) song

  • What You Like
  • I believe the word for this is "splenetic". Only 20 seconds long.

  • Imperial Measures
  • What is going on in Iraq? Some things you knew, some you didn't. A couple of bits of info are out of date now.

  • Wish You Were Here
  • Wish You Were Here is a 6 minute film about the unprecendted rate of animal extinction we are currently experiencing

  • Gorillas and us
  • I don't like creationism, neither did Douglas Adams
