Open Letter to Howard Stern

Dear Howard,

I know you have a big announcement scheduled for tomorrow morning. I fear it will be that you are going to satellite radio.

If so, you are playing right into Bush's hands.

Bush is privatizing you!

If you go to satellite radio you are being privatized.

Just like they are privatizing our military (halliburton, caci) our power supply (enron) and our education system (no child left behind emphasizes testing over teaching so much that kids have to be tutored - by teachers for hire)


Please think about it.


Fascism: 1. A philosophy or system of government that advocates or exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership, together with an ideology of belligerent nationalism. - American Heritage Dictionary

My Pet Goat

I was talking to director Joe Beck in rehearsal on Sunday, and we were talking about George W. and the footage of him reading "My Pet Goat" as he realizes that the largest terrorist attack in American history was going down.

If you'd like to watch the actual unedited footage, check it out here.

If you'd like to see the website for the school, it's here.

You'll see that one of the reasons Michael Moore didn't put the entire 5 minutes in Fahrenheit 9/11, is that the sound of those kids reading is pretty danged annoying. I'm all for kids learnin' and crap, but sheesh... well, you'll hear it for yourself.

What should George have done? I don't know.

Allow me to quote Animal House again on this blog:

"If I were you, I would be-

Leaving! What a good idea!"

Then again, maybe he knew that Dick "Fuck Yourself" Cheney was in control somewhere. As always.

Moore Moore Moore

Did anyone catch Michael Moore on Howard Stern Friday morning? It was awesome. In case you don't listen to Stern on a regular basis, he was really into Bush after 9/11. It was hard for us lefty types to listen as he ranted and raved about bombing Iraq back to the stone age. For someone with such big free-speech issues he was the first guy to scream about Moore's acceptance speech at the Academy Awards along with trashing all sorts of "hollywood types" who spoke out against the president.

However on Friday, Stern apologized to Moore for what he had said. He admitted to trashing him and said he was really sorry about it.

And what did Moore say? Did he gloat about it? Did he rub it in Stern's face? Did he hand him a big steaming plate of "I told you so?"

Would you?

No. Moore told Stern that he needn't apologize because everyone has the right to believe their president. Everyone wants to believe that their country is doing the right thing. And there's nothing wrong with that.

I think Michael Moore is, once again, setting a great example for all of us to follow. Some of us are going to see this film and get all smug and frustrated and shit and think "duh! I knew that! That's what we've been yelling about in the streets for the last two years!"

But we need to restrain ourselves. We need to create a soft place for our fellow countrymen to land. We know the excrutiating pain of being disillusioned. However, we've been living with it for awhile now. It's fresh to so many others who just wanted to believe in our president. There's nothing wrong with that.

Fahren Balanced 9/11?

(Originally published on that EoA blog)

Fahrenheit 9/11 weekend! Have you seen it yet? Why not? Watchu scared of, a big bad dose of TRUTH, my brother?

I liked it. Actually thought Michael Moore was a bit restrained- maybe there was so much stuff to cover on this one, and the stuff covered is so damned serious, he didn't feel the need to wise-ass some shlep of a security guard or corporate p.r. rep like he usually does (although this classic Michael Moore technique worked like a charm when he headed over to K-mart HQ with that Columbine victim to return K-mart's bullets in Bowling... the good folks at the Big K changed their ways!)

But nervous folks in the Right Wing Pundit Business are going to call the man a liar, a cheat, a scoundrel, anti-American, Anti-troops (if you haven't seen the movie, and you believe that, then you are dumb, dumb, dumb)- and then they call him fat. When they call him fat, you know they got NOTHIN' - and that they're just mean.

The Center For American Progess website has a nice page that breaks down the accusations and the truth. Check out Analyzing Fahrenheit 9/11.

Stuff to think about as you come home from the multiplex after sticking it to the man, and to White Chicks, the best zombie movie I've seen in awhile.

Update: Even the Carlyle Group will profit from F9/11... amazing.

Happy Hour Everybody

Hi Y'all,

Well, we're gettin' off the plane in Irishland and you know, turns out that drinkin' thing they say about the Irish is real! And it's Friday night back home so I'd like to say Happy Hour to everyone of you!

And while I'm at it shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Kerry sucks! see:

Oh goodness gracious, I'm awful.

Well it is late and the children should be tucked in all over the world by now, right? So I guess I'm not too awful. I'm just going to press send and go to bed. Better hide the hooch.

Night all!

The Naked Trucker!!!!!!! He's a TRUCKER and he ain't got no clothes on!

A few weeks back the wife and I went to a "Concert for Kerry" featuring Tenacious D. We handed out a bunch of EOA bizness cards.

But the REVELATION of the evening was The Naked Trucker and T-Bones Show. They played this anti-Bush song that was f-ing GREAT.

So I e-mailed the NT my positive feedback via his website, and he sent me a postcard.

I said it before and I'll say it again: the Naked Trucker is a nice man.

Who died? Um, this guy did...

(Also from that E0A site:)

I don't know what fraternity Lush Rimjob pledged back at Jack Ass University, but in Animal House I don't remember Bluto murdering Pinto and Flounder...

Yep, people died at Abu Ghraib, before we could get all that valuable intel out of them. What if (WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGE)this guy knew when the next 9/11 was going to happen?

That's why he was there, right? To rat out his terrorist buddies?

And Bush still can't pronounce the name of the place.

Screaming at the Big Apple

Hey! Why the fuck is the West Hollywood Gay and Lesbian Gay Pride Festival called "Christopher Street West?" What the fuck is that all about? Why doesn't WeHo get it's own Gay Pride fest?

New York is a sham. Everything about it is bogus. EVERYTHING in NYC is unnecessarily a pain in the ass. We moved there in 2001 and every time we told someone that we had just relocated from L.A. they'd say "Why'd you do that?" Everybody said it. The postman, the security guy at the library, the librarian, the people at the unions, the people at the temp agencies, even the people running the building where we got the "great" one-bedroom, 40th floor, river view apartment with a terrace (balcony) and parking for $525 a month. Of course our friends didn't ask us because our friends weren't really talking to us since we had such a great deal on the apartment. Seems that being on the waiting list for 16 years didn't really mean we EARNED it.

And then there was that lovely period after 9-11 when we got to live through the anthrax scares. I was particularly disturbed the day that a child of one of the employees at NBC was possibly infected by anthrax sent to tom brokaw. I remember seeing a report on the news that night where they were questioning a bunch of NBC employees who had to also be tested. One guy said it was no big deal to be tested for anthrax because it was "just life in the big city." Right. Go screw yourself. You all think you're so civilized. The rest of the country doesn't live on top of each other like rats in a "luxury" apartment building with 3000 other rats or have raging alcohol problems because the only place to socialize is in bars since their apartments don't hold more than two people at a time. The rest of the country doesn't have to take a cab or a subway or walk 20 blocks to see something green or hear a bird sing. "life in the big city" sucks big donkey dicks. And if you think that having money would make it all better then you're just a bad liberal, because if you are going to spend all that money to live a life that would be marginal in any other city then you're being duped. move to the burbs and give all that extra cash to your downtown boys and girls club.
