ABCNews is reporting that outgoing Sen. Fred Thompson was married today. I believe I speak for all of the JesusH staff when I say, “Good job, Fred”.
Sen. Thompson leaves the senate with a very prestigious record, having taken a major role in investigating then Pres. Clinton’s fundraising scandals, as well as heading numerous campaign finance committees and hunting down the Red October.
Sen. Thompson has also been in numerous Hollywood movies, often playing big burly men of authority.
No, no: you’re thinking of Joe Don Baker. Fred Thompson was the other one. Right.
Tatum O’Neal is featured on ABCNews today, refuting some stuff that that McEnroe tennis guy wrote about her in some book.
How in the hell does Tatum O’Neal drum up this much press? Okay, so she won an Oscar or something for some movie a hundred years ago and allegedly has done some acting since then — isn’t she still, like, a ‘D’ list actor? Corey Feldman couldn’t get this much article space if he destroyed Palestinian HQ, and I would allege that he is at least 1 to 2 lists above Tatum O’Neal at this point. How does that happen?
Phet and I went on a jaunt this evening that culminated in a trip to Barnes and Noble to check out their supply of Test Prep books. While there, I thought I’d stroll over to the half-shelf of comic books and graphic novels that these places always have. I was ostensibly looking for a copy of From Hell, the graphic novel by Alan Moore that inspired the swell movie that came out a bit ago. I’m interested in the graphic novel because I hear that Alan Moore is an insane author, and I am curious to thumb through it.
They didn’t have it.

There are times when I think people are generally reasonable, fairly intelligent, not all that prone to flying off the handle–in other words, like me, as far as I know. And then some stupid goddamned waste of time like the Georgia statute criminalizing sex between people who aren’t married, no matter their age, is brought to mind because someone else is getting charged with getting laid without a (marriage) license.

There are some things a man just shouldn’t have to see while driving. It used to be for me, the list was: the check engine light, blue and red cop flashers, out of control semis and signs reading :Now Entering the Great State of Texas. Now, I have a new addition to that list, one that’s scarred me permanently.

Awful New Jack/R&B/Soul/whatever artist R. Kelly apparently got busy with a 13-year-old girl and videotaped it. In and of itself, that isn’t particularly noteworthy, as he’s been reportedly chasing prepubescent poon for years now, and lately, his lawyers have issued choice statements about the accusations against him:
“People seem to have gotten the idea that R Kelly is some sort of walking ATM machine they can hit up for cash simply by threatening to sue him.”

So I was awakened today at the ungodly hour of 11:45 by the sound of a woman screaming somewhere in the proximity of the alley behind my apartment. I couldn’t really make out what she was saying – something about killing somebody or something. Then some lady yelled at the first woman that if she didn’t stop screaming that 911 would be called.

I don’t know why, but I’m all of a sudden a bit nostalgiac for OJ’s cereal. Does anybody else remember OJ’s? It came out in the 80’s, and they had a commercial with a cowboy corralling oranges, and he was singing a song that went “Round ’em up! OJ’s – keep them oranges rolling!”. I never ate OJ’s because orange cereal sounds godawful, but I sure wish that somebody else was eating them right now. Somewhere.
New stuff sucks.

I stayed home today to sign for a bunch of crap that I had delivered. In addition to the delivery I was waiting for, the digital camera I bought a few days ago was also delivered. As you can see, I’ve charged it up, formatted the card, and taken my very first digital picture. Mom will be proud. Read on if you want a boring rundown of the equipment delivered.

After a particularly fruitful jaunt to Fry’s, I have upgraded my computer a tad bit from a PIII 800 with 512 Mb of RAM to a P4 1.8Ghz with 1024 Mb of RAM.
I now have more computing power than Mexico.

While we’re on a Drudge kick, he linked to a fun article about Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who apparently is/was bin Laden’s right hand psycho in organizing the 9/11 attacks.

So back when I was a yout, in 1985 or so, I used to go to the Yellow Brick Road in UTC and play video games. Shiznit, Woody and Andres probably hung out there at the same time, so they may actually remember a laserdisc game called Badlands.

John Travolta has trained to become a 747 pilot, and is celebrating by carting his family around the world in his 707 for two months.

So yeah, we’re changing stuff around a bit at JesusH — “a bit”, in this case, meaning a complete front-end redesign and back-end retrofit. So stuff might look strange for a bit — “a bit”, in this case, meaning a long freakin’ time.
Just kidding. You know what I mean.
I saw it this weekend. It was good.

Holy Christ, do I like Eminem. I’m not excited by 99.9% of new music now (I couldn’t even name a single song by Korn, Creed, Limp Bizikut, er… ‘N Sync, HUD-74, Days of The New, and uh, Jordan Knight…), but I’ll be damned if I don’t run out like a screaming schoolgirl when Eminem comes out with a new joint (that’s what the kids are calling LP’s now).

Hi, this is a test of the MovableType JesusH broadcasting system.
Thanks for your support.
Dale, from King of the Hill:
“No! We can’t tell the Army that Bill stole a tank! They’ll tell their superiors at America Online, and they’ll have him killed. Along with everybody on his buddy list.”
So, yeah. There is a really big fire in Arizona.
The only thing that gives me solace about all this is that conditions seem just about right for Sebastian Junger to write “The Perfect Fire” in ten years after he finds an appropriate human angle to all this. Man, I’ll bet the special effects for that movie will be awesome.
I hope he doesn’t get discouraged for having blown his wad on that “Fire” book (available in bookstores now!), which was obviously written about less-perfect fires. Maybe “The Perfect Fire” can be like the sequel or something.
Presumably nice Cardinals pitcher Darryl Kile (33) and columnist wench Ann Landers (83) both died today.
Coincidence? I don’t think so…
I’ve been listening to this song (by some band called Spoon) pretty much constantly for the past two months. It is on a comp I ripped from KSDT, only there it is titled Lines in the Sult.
Its a lot like Fastball, only awesome.
These aren’t Nate MP3s – they’re on a public server.
The best song in the world:
Lines in the Suit
This song sounds pretty swell too:

That rat-looking guy who tried to blow up a plane with his shoe had one of his charges thrown out of court today, when a federal judge ruled that it did not apply.
The charge was “attempting to wreck a mass transportation vehicle”, and the judge ruled that airplanes are not vehicles covered under the law.
This is extremely confusing to me. I think I kind of consider an airplane to be a “mass-transportation vehicle”. I suppose the law was exclusively written for things like buses, trains, radio flyer wagons and moving walkways (“Hey! What are you doing with that handrail! Ow!”), but dammit, something about this seems flawed.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unfortunately it looks as if so-called “major”, so-called “legitimate” national news outlets have basically dropped the ball on this one, and, as usual, I have to pick up the slack.
It’s interesting that I read this in the San Diego Union-Tribune today (in an article written by local George Varga, no less), and even THEY don’t list the obit on their website. Weird.
For the three of you out there who don’t know (and who, by the way, should be ashamed), Crosby was the guitarist for Ratt. He was 42, and he died of AIDS, which he caught as a result of his heroin addiction.
It’s officially the end of an era, as far as I’m concerned…
I met with the loan officer today, put my John Hancock on about eight hundred pages of standard contracts, riders, and associated legalese jack-assery. I also made arrangements to wire the remainder of the down payment to Escrow. It’s going to be tough watching that money leave the account.
