NASA answers all your questions about that Russian meteor

I'm not some kind of paranoid freak, but I do believe that WTC tower 7 was a controlled demolition and I find it very difficult to believe that two space rocks happened to arrive within hours of each other. via


terry gross tuesday

it's not tuesday, but this fresh air interview is not conducted by terry gross, so we'll bend the rules a little.

if you'd like to add a little excitement and intrigue and organized criminal history to your day, take a listen at this interview with the authors of a new book about notorious boston gangtser, whitey bulger. you might remember him from jack nicholson in the departed.

it is pretty engrossing, and you get some really great boston accents, too.

this has 2ooPz written all over it.


NEWSFLASH: is this new williamsburg honkeytonk going to sell bushwackers?

  The garrulous guys behind popular craft beer dive Lucky Dog have branched out with a new joint just a few blocks away on Metropolitan Avenue, in the former home of Bar Berry. Called Skinny Dennis (after a country music bassist who died onstage in 1975 at the age of 28) the bar perpetuates the laid-back yet well-curated vibe of Lucky Dog, but with a honky-tonk theme. Co-owner Sal Fristensky happens to be a big country music fan, and Skinny Dennis will present live music three nights a week, supplemented by a jukebox that spans the spectrum from country to classic rock.

   Most of the beer is domestic, with 18 craft brews on tap, and all of them running about $5. For good old boys on a budget, Skinny Dennis also serves a 24 oz Coors banquet beer in a mason jar for $4, as well as $3 Bud, PBR and Rolling Rock. Or for $6 you can get a delicious and refreshing Uncle Willie's Frozen Coffee, which comes out of the daiquiri machine Mack bought for $9,000. Ingredients include milk, vanilla, sugar, bourbon, coffee liqueur, brandy, Oslo coffee, and another floater of bourbon on the top for good measure. Skinny Dennis serves it in a classic "Anthora" Greek coffee cup, in case everything else in the joint makes you forget you're still in Brooklyn.

I don't know what goes in a bushwacker. who wants to go with me to find out? thx kirby

anne hathaway's oscar dress controversy

i knew that people didn't really like anne hathaway's pink prada oscar dress. i thought this was because people just basically don't seem to like anne hathaway (note: i like anne hathaway), or because the chest darts looked like nipples, but it turns out there was more to this story.

anne switched dresses two hours before show time
she was supposed to wear the valentino dress in the middle
she switched because she found out that amanda seyfried's dress was a look-a-like alexander mcqueen
jennifer aniston also switched from a look-a-like nude valentino to a red valentino
seems to me that amanda seyfriend should have been the one to switch dresses to give the future oscar winner her moment in the sun in her first choice dress.
ultimately anne apologizes for switching

omg look at this post

look at all that scribble-scrabble underneath my roommate's photo. 

nytimes trend alert

hey, owls are a thing. NEW TREND ALERT, owls.

     In the Western imagination, the owl surely vies with the penguin for the position of My Favorite Bird. “Everyone loves owls,” said David J. Bohaska, a paleobiologist at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, who discovered one of the earliest owl fossils. “Even mammalogists love owls.” 
     Owls are a staple of children’s books and cultural kitsch — here wooing pussycats in pea-green boats and delivering mail to the Harry Potter crew, there raising a dubiously Wise eyebrow in the service of snack food. Yet for all this apparent familiarity, only lately have scientists begun to understand the birds in any detail, and to puzzle out the subtleties of behavior, biology and sensory prowess that set them apart from all other avian tribes.

Some (not very) prominent Republicans have banded together to make the shocking announcement that they are not in fact in favor of outright discrimination. After homeroom they passed a note to the Supreme Court in support of a lawsuit that seeks to strike down Proposition 8, the California law that the Mormons payed for.

In making an expansive argument that same-sex marriage bans are discriminatory, the brief’s signatories are at odds with the House Republican leadership, which has authorized the expenditure of tax dollars to defend the 1996 marriage law. The law defines marriage in the eyes of the federal government as the union of a man and a woman.

Like several communities that hug the nation’s coastline, Charleston is struggling to balance the economic benefits of cruise ships against their cultural and environmental impact.
Last week’s debacle aboard Carnival Cruise Lines’ Triumph, in which an engine fire stranded 4,200 people in the Gulf of Mexico for five days, has done little to deter those civic leaders who believe that building a new $35 million cruise terminal will be a great boon for this port city. (via)

my local congressman makes national news for having a secret daughter

He got caught tweeting a beautiful young woman after the SOTU and people thought he was having some sort of romantic relationship with her. Steve Cohen is not married, so there isn't really anything wrong with that, but whatever. It turns out that the lady in questions wasn't a girlfriend, it was a daughter that had been kept secret from him until three years ago! whoa. To make it even weirder, the girl's mother was previously married to Frank Sinatra Jr. and is a defense lawyer in Texas for international war criminals. huh? I vote for this man.

The explosion injured some 500 people who were hit mostly by glass that was broken by the boom. The explosion, captured on amateur video, broke windows, set off car alarms, and disrupted cell phone service in Russia's Ural mountains near Chelyabins, Reuters reports.

pope benedict xvi quit being the pope today. Usually you have to die to stop being pope. the last pope to quit outright instead of dying was Celestine V in 1294. pope benedict, a former member of the hitler youth, says that he is too old and sick to carry on. he's probably right.

this was benedict xvi's papal crest. stay tuned to hear about the new pope and his crest. (CANT WAIT!)

  Competing at Westminster for the first time this year are Russell terriers and treeing Walker coonhounds. Russells are often called Jack Russells, like the dog on Fraiser or Uggie; the similar Parson Russell terrier, which has a more "square" body, is already a part of Westminster. The treeing Walker is known for chasing raccoons up trees. This is a photo of a treeing Walker sniffing a Russell terrier's butt:

While the forecast is still subject to change, the current indication is that while New England will bear the brunt of the storm’s severity — with more than two feet of snow and blizzardlike conditions – New York City and the surrounding area are also in for a significant hit.
By the time the storm has passed through, sometime on Saturday, forecasters predict the storm will have dumped as much as a foot of snow in the area, while delivering blistering winds reaching 50 m.p.h., and flooding coastal areas.
