Post Show Thoughts

Certainly, this wasn’t the best show I or Tony have done, but it was sufficient. We hadn’t been on the air together since the KSTP gig, which was over 20 weeks ago, so we tripped over each other a little. Also, I’m still having problems with the station ID, it’s NEWSTALK 1450 KNSI, St. Cloud.

I also think some of the anonymous posters are a little over critical of Tony, we get the job done, and it’s nice to do a show with Tony because he thinks so completely different than I, it makes for some fun jousting. Next week is Cheri Yecke, be sure to tune in!


Radio show is from 1-3pm today on 1450 KNSI in St. Cloud. If you’re not in the area, fear not, because you can listen in on the web:

KNSI Direct Link

Or you can get to that link at our show’s website.

Call in number is (320) 251-1990 for all you MOBsters.

Random Thought

Why is it so hard to get to the golf course early before a round and properly warm up? You’re planning on spending 4-5 hours playing golf, it shouldn’t be that hard to invest 20 minutes at the range warming up and fixing any swing issues before you start keeping score. For some reason this never happens for me, which is a pain because my golf swing is rather touchy. I tend to score well in golf, after three or four holes.

I think someone might have stolen my “random link o’ the day” idea with a “Cool site o’ the day”

A fair list of the worst movies ever. I’ve seen most of these, and I own a lot of them.

This guy is awesome

Global Warming stuff.
I think that any curtails of emissions is a mistake, the key is Carbon sinks.

Sometimes the media can drive you batty.

Army has some asshat hacker problems I think if anyone had been injured because of this incident, this guy should be charged with attempted murder.

Big fight in the movie industry about who is going to pay for the new digital projectors. I think big studios are going to need to pay for it themselves, the last thing they need is to force theatre owners to raise ticket prices again. That would completely destroy their already piss poor numbers.

Space shuttle SOL

Kansas and Nebraska spar over child molestation, which state is more redneck

My love of bad movies is intolerable, here are all the “flubs” in”Plan 9. Also, look at the sidebar under “bargain bin movie reviews” for more of the fun I have with bad movies.

Google maps and stuff is awesome

Man charged in flashing his banana
. Keep it clean.

Dumb things you can do with money.

Pope laments loss of western church.

Abortion parade fun. 1st amendment need not apply.

Coke gets new coke to help people lose weight.
Yeah right.

Cool old car.

Open Thread! Kevin Ecker is gone until Monday, totally spam time.

Senate and Bush might spar over Stem Cells I’m backing Bush on this one.

Berlin prepares big brothel. I covered this in this blog last year, sorta, in Germany, if you’re a woman on unemployment, you have to take a job in a brothel if offered or else you lose unemployment. So it’s possible that many of the women in this brothel are being forced by the government (under the guise of church/state seperation) to have sex for money. Europe sucks.

Morris gets it right on Bush. I like how Democrats in D.C. are getting completely whipped by this Texas good ol’ boy.

Open Thread!

Thoughts of England

This is your Captain speaking…

Anyone else notice that the Irish called off their violent revolution as soon as the Brits started shooting bombing suspects at random?

Despite the long-standing struggle to contain the IRA and their bombs, this battle with these radical Muslims is a whole different matter. The Irish had different targets, usually phoned in a warning, and did not target random citizens. Current bombers are targeting the anyone who happens to be in London, with no political target other than the English people.

I have no direct knowledge of this, but the way the English law enforcement is reacting, I bet they have intelligence that the bombers are on a schedule, with 4 bombs a week every Thursday. That would explain everything we see in the added security on Thursdays. Not the time or place to be if you’re young, male, swarthy and happen to want to wear a backpack and a jacket.

English traditions may have to be curtailed in a small way. The Hyde Park corner where people have long stood up and advocated the violent overthrow of the English crown may have to be silenced now that some idiots actually think the idiots who say that are serious.

Another corner of Hyde Park is where they used to construct their gallows. Maybe they need to shift these people North a few hundred yards and see how well they speak with their neck stretched a bit.

England has now made overstaying your student visa a capital offense. I wonder if we would have the illegal immigrant problem we have if we applied the same remedy?

Keegan’s last night did not go well for the two man team of Myself and Aaron Solem. We didn’t even get our scorecard back. We missed a solid four or five questions because State Senator Michelle Bachmann came over and started talking to us. That was fine, I guess, but I doubt we were anywhere close to the 21 right answers needed to win.

Coincidentally, our team was named “The Carthaginians”

What was fun was that I was interviewed about my radio show on Aaron’s blog. I also got to meet Doug from Bogus Gold, I saw The Night Writer again, John the Policy Guy and I successfully avoided David Strom again.

Oh, and the Fraters lost again!
