Childress Wanted Favre to Come Out of Game!

Favre irked that Childress pondered pulling him

Posted using ShareThis

Now the fun begins. I have the sounds Prima Donna from Phantom of the Opera ringing in my head!
Wrong time of the year for this childish behavior that might of even cost them the game, and what is the point of having a Head Coach if the "Star Player" can do whatever he wants(he's earned that right remember).
It is entertainment after all and after the Packers choked at Pittsburgh this helped tremendously!

The Hey Jude Flow Chart!

Jackson's 'Captain EO' to return to Disneyland!

I was a teenager when this came out, and while I was never a big Michael Jackson fan along with his pretty poor Captain Kirk impression, I remember enjoying this short film that I recall seeing at Epcot Center in Florida.
The 3-D imaging was different than anything 3-D I had seen previously, and the music was pretty good(for the time).
So if you are planning a trip to Disneyland a little moonwalking diversion could be fun!

Dude, They're Putting Pot in More than Brownies!

This is a good article from The Wisconsin State Journal about a new medical-marijuana shop called Ganja Gourmet in Denver.
I guess as the old saying goes anything that uses oregano could be substituted with that wacky weed.
But $89 for a pizza is a little steep. Especially if it works because afterwards you are going to want 4 more of them!

Tiger Woods Agent: Paper 'Falsely Reported' Doc's Connection To Golfer

Tiger Woods agent Mark Steinberg is falling for I am calling a media bait by linking Tiger to a Canadian Doctor Anthony Galeawho who is suspected of dealing HGH(Human Growth Hormone).

The bait is by attacking Tiger professionally that he will be forced to(finally) have a press conference or interview where he will be forced to answer questions about his personal life.

Stay tuned because this maybe covered on television someday.

Really? Was it that bad of a year? No one else in the World made a significant contribution to be considered except a man who pretty much did nothing. Didn't raise interest rates, didn't comply with Congress over audits over bail out money, didn't smile, etc.

Didn't someone in this country win the Nobel Peace Prize? What about those people running that collider in Switzerland, they haven't destroyed the Earth yet they should get some votes. Brett Favre coming out of retirement(again) should get some consideration, and the voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for letting in Abba over Supertramp surely get my vote.
I guess when I really think about it I can't come up with anyone better, which is probably why Time Magazine has been doing this for many years. I should learn to trust them.

Yes! ABBA's Induction into Rock Hall of Fame Gives Me a Supercramp!

Stooges, Jimmy Cliff, Genesis, & ABBA Get Rock Hall Of Fame Nods | Billboard.com

My annual discussion about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is here again as another round of inductees are let in while others have not being let in for one reason or another.

My usual debate is that I have no problem of gets in, but who gets left out. I guess that happens to all "Hall of Fames".

I love ABBA, I have all their albums-- I mean a "friend of mine" does. But c'mon man. ABBA, Blondie, Jackson Browne, John Fogerty(while with CCR),THE STOOGES(!!!!) are in, while founders of progressive rocks groups like Yes, King Crimson and Supertramp still wait for an invite.

I fail to recognize this organization until it finds a better method for their flawed induction process.
(There I showed them!)

Al Gore shoots self, climate summit in foot?

More inconvenient truth for Al Gore

Posted using ShareThis

Another perspective in this article from Tech Generation Daily.

Once again Mr. Gore is taking some data and cherry picking for effect some great catastrophe(and yet to prove if losing the ice caps would be a catastrophe).
At least he didn't say the "science is clear", but I was disgusted with his tone of the speech.

I believe that climate change is real(it's been going on for billions of years), and that humans may have some(SOME!) influence.
The science may be clear, but it is not clear how we all perceive that science and data and who is using it and who is profiting from it(Gore!).

Free Calls for a Drum Set!

Here are my links for the week and possible topics for the next Radioaffliction!

  1. Free Drum Set: Interesting set of sounds set to the Qwerty keyboard. You can click or type a sound. Nothing fancy and on some operating systems there is a little bit of a lag, but some of the sounds are so cool that you can forgive some misgivings.

  2. iCall: Free VOIP calls and they really mean free(voipbusters lied to me!) calls for five minutes and really do you need to talk for more than that(most times!). They have three versions, a download(Windows only), a web version(that I haven't had work yet, but maybe because I was on a Linux platform, plus it is still in beta) and a iPhone version. Even though there is a quick 20 second commercial before it connects your call you do get 5 actual calling minutes. Could be better, but it really is free(voipbusters lied to me!) and it gets the job done.

  3. Hey, It's Free!: Great site that lists a bunch of free stuff, samples, surveys, contests, etc. so you don't have to search all over for them. I have gotten free samples, calenders and music from Amazon. I like this site so much I put it on my blog roll on the left side of the web page!
