Madonna's Halftime Show or was it an Illuminati Ritual
Monday morning quarterbacking: Should the Giants have stopped on the 1 yard line and run the clock down rather than score the final TD at the end of the game? Personally I would have been scared to do it (turn over; missed field goal; etc...) but I can see it might have been the theoretically better option. What say you?
New signage on our block:
look whose building is on the cover of willamette week (portland's weekly rag)
just watching a english premier league game and some spectator just handcuffed themselves to the goal post.
two dunks on back to back days. which is more impressive?
(A dunk, or, slam dunk is a type of basketball shot that is performed when a player jumps in the air and manually powers the ball downward through the basket with one or both hands over the rim.)
Perpetual student that I am, today I was at Laguna Seca taking a racing school. I had a pretty good day behind the wheel. David smacked a tire wall in a fast part of the track. Ibuprofen, heating pad and ice pack are fully deployed. Belts stretch to absorb energy. Despite being strapped in tight with a 6 point harness. His
head helmet hit the steering wheel. I think he's convinced that a HANS is a good thing.

The seized emails make it hard to generate much sympathy for the MegaUpload crew. I'm no international law expert, but paying people to upload full DVD rips of popular movies and cracked software while driving around in expensive sports cars with license plates like 'MAFIA' doesn't really look too good. Not to mention mansions with safe rooms and the weapons. Like wanna-be rap star computer nerds.
Anyway, all that aside, it did seems to be pretty coincidental timing that they were raided right after SOPA and PIPA went down. And now I learn that they apparently were about to release a new music distribution platform, MegaBox, that would pay artists 90% of revenue for all music sold through the store, as well as providing revenue to artists who choose to give their songs away for free (a model they had already proven can make millions since that is what they were doing through piracy.) The 5th most trafficked site on the internet turns it's guns on the outdated business model of the entire recording industry and then are suddenly arrested. I wish they had acted differently / smarter and been able to carry out the MegaBox plan.
Weird: 2.4 million square feet of warehouse and manufacturing space 100 ft. underground in Springfield, MO.
NY friends let me recommend two performances. One: Kitchen by the British/German group Gobsquad, now playing at The Public. Discounted and rush tickets available, see details below. We loved this show in NY last year and if the funding gods come through, will bring to PDX this Fall.
Two: Young Jean Lee's Untitled Feminist show. I am still kicking myself I left NY one day before it opened, so I haven't seen it, but everyone I know who has is raving. And it stars 6 nekkid ladies.
Want to see Gob Squad's "Kitchen.."? Don't have a deep wallet? For you a special deal: use the code word SMART and get a $40 ticket, you can use it on line, at the box office or over the phone. If that is still too steep? We will have a rush line with $20 tickets and there will most likely be availability, just drop by live before the showtime. Please re-post this to all your friends and family. The Gob Squad and I would greatly appreciate it. This is an amazing show! sexy, funny, poignant and true. I will see you there.

Mehdi Kabbaj, owner of my favorite clothing store 20 Peacocks (20 Clinton St.), was struck by a minivan and died after exiting a cab stuck in traffic on the FDR and attempting to cross the southbound lanes on foot.
it had to happen sooner or later. the internet has run out of things to talk about.

File under junkie jail letters:
this gnarley letter showed up on the Herbert huncke fb page if your a member see it here. it is a letter from (I'm unable to find any reference of online) Jimmy porter to bill heine (who has a page here.)
there is mention of a Janine both in the letter and in the heine links leading me to believe it's Janine pommy vega who has interesting material on YouTube. Mary Mary, who knows.
Bye bye blackbird here
