Woody Allen on Psychoanalysis

"I’ve had a very productive life. I’ve worked very hard, I’ve never fallen prey to depression. I’m not sure I could have done all of that without being in psychoanalysis. People would say to me, oh, it’s just a crutch. And I would say, yes. It’s a crutch, and exactly what I need in this point in my life is a crutch."

East Village Obama by MBW

I just happened upon these guys wheatpasting some new stuff and they were kind enough to give me a mini sticker version of this great Super Obama image. I will tuck it into my Siddur during the High Holy Days. Flickr page here.
Later: I found out that the artist is known as Mr. Brainwash and that he's done at least one big multimedia exhibit in L.A. The appearance of Super Obama (or the poster announcing his arrival) coincides with the final issue of the Grant Morrison All-Star version of the character.

Please Baby, Please Baby, Please

Just seeing these 2 together gives me hope. Pitbulls, pigs, lipstick, trollops, idiots, please step aside.

Ben Stein "She Should Have Henry Kissinger Babysitting Her"

Got to point to this lovely interview with Ben Stein on the subject of America's Favorite Pitbull with Lipstick. Hang on until about 1:41 when he starts referencing the Superman films...:

Talking Heads Quote of The Day

"At the end of ... (a NYT article on the band)... Mr. Rockwell asked the 'group' if they would be willing to compromise their music for commercial success: 'Mr. Byrne looks dubious.'

Miss Weymouth said, 'We think we're commercial just the way we are.'

According to Rockwell, the girl was smiling as she said it."

Merlin Mann, He's My Mann

From 43Folders:

The power of connecting with people in an authentic way (no, not in that cheesy, half-assed, internet “friends” way) falls apart at the point where its resource consumption curtails your ability to keep making new stuff. It’s a twisted paradox, for sure. But, in essence, it’d be a little like the Beatles skipping the writing and recording of Rubber Soul in order to catch up on 1964’s fan mail.

Put plainer, my sense is that western culture would be a damn sight poorer today if John Lennon had been forced to carry a goddamn BlackBerry.

Also, this.

Send a Condom to a Reactionary Asshole Today

Coincidentally, just got this email from Planned Parenthood:

Planned Parenthood: "Send a Condom to the Convention! Remind Republican delegates that prevention is a non-partisan issue!"

Yes, but how much extra to send an "ABC" one?

Glass Ceiling on Shotgun Marriages is Shattered

First our mantra:

"Obama is my candidate
and he must be our president"

"Obama is my candidate
and he must be our president"

"Obama is my candidate
and he must be our president"

"Obama is my candidate
and he must be our president"

"Obama is my candidate
and he must be our president"

Where to begin? The nuttiness of religious extremists always, always having the most wacked out personal lives is no surprise at all. A politician who is against sex ed & birth control in a breeding contest with her own 17 year old daughter, excellent family values. Shitheads.

Seriously, whoever the poor schmuck is who knocked up Trackmeet or Poohbear or whatever the fuck her daughter is named must be a complete moron given that his now future mother in law is bristling with guns and ammo! (But, pace Bill Maher, he may be dumb but he is not cowardly. Plus his name is Levi! Can't wait for the bris.) *

It's all fun and games so long as we get an Obama victory in the fall.

*Postscript: he's not that kind of Levi, as it turns out, but he's still one brave/horny/clueless/all of the above soul.
