Getting Old (Suckage)

Another Day, Another 38 Cents

First and foremost, I gotta send a big rockin' shout out to my bro', gonzo_md on his birthday.  Here's hoping the day kicks mucho ass, big guy!

You know, Sometimes I wonder just what Playboy is thinking.  It's like they want to try so hard to make you believe they are something other than a porn mag.  Articles, interviews, blah, blah, blah, and then a couple photoshoots of naked ladies.  Time to face facts: if your magazine includes more than one picture of a chick in the buff, you are not a mainstream magazine, unless the bulk of the rest of the magazine is adverts for cameras and discussions of f-stops.  But Playboy is undaunted, continuing to publish their magazine whose target audience is apparently young, muscular, square-jawed corporate CEOs (or so you'd believe, looking at the various things that they recommend for fashion and gear).  What brought all this on?  The fact that, in their new issue, they paid Rachel Hunter £1 million to pose nude.  Rachel Hunter...yes, mostly known for being a Sports illustrated swimsuit model, and marrying Rod Stewart...and when was the last time she was in the public eye?  Frankly, I'm not impressed with the pictures. (I shouldn't have to tell you that link is not work-safe.)

This Is Pretty Sad

Not To Touch The Earth

If this column is to be believed, then there is a standing order that Bush has declared that his feet will not touch dirt.  Period.  Amazing to think that someone who would send troops to go and bloody the soil of another country won't touch the soil of his own...
