Rage Against The Machine

-Rob Bartlett will be at the Gotham Comedy Club in Manhattan this Saturday, December 5th. Tickets and more information can be found here.

-So in the past few weeks or so, a lot of you have probably noticed an "interesting" visitor on this site. He only speaks Japanese; he likes to chat (a lot);and he likes to sell potentially shady merchandise. In short, he's a spambot.

Well, I hate that it's come to this, but I've officially decided to install a No-Robot Policy here at this blog. I set up those little text box-thingys where you have to type in a gibberish word in order to comment; this ensures that only humans can post. Yes, I hate to discriminate against someone based on their ethnic origins (50% steel, 50% silicon). And yes, it pains me deeply to shun a lonely soul who just wants to talk to someone, anyone, about his massive piles of software, gadgets, and Viagra. But no one ever said that life was easy.

Yet there are so many unanswered questions about our visitor. What does a Japanese robot see in the Imus program? Why is he obsessed with Van Morrison? These posts started appearing around the FBN debut, so there has to be a draw there. Maybe he's fallen in love with the cute flatscreens behind the I-man and Charles? It doesn't add up.

At any rate, my apologies for not tending to this sooner, and let me know if our robot friend keeps posting spam. And incidentally, if a robot ever moves into your neighborhood, don't ever let him terrorize the elderly.

Turkey Day

Since we're approaching the holiday weekend, I thought it would be appropriate to show last night's Hannity interview of Imus and Charles. (Here are links to Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.) It's appropriate because of its excellent holiday content: Two near-relatives sitting around a table, screaming at each other about politics and their relationship, while the host, Hannity, sits in stunned silent horror.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Pulling That Lever

Thanks to everyone who voted on Tuesday. And if you haven't seen the big news out of New Jersey, I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot about it in the next few days...
