Video killed the radio star

Hey? Do you know what open format radio is? It's where the DJ can play anything they want, and aren't given lists of what's in rotation by the cartel of labels, advertisers, and promoters… College radio is one of the few places left that you can find open format, and my friend Saira is one of those DJs. If it's between 11PM and 2AM EST (on the day I post this), you can visit CHRY and listen live. It's also the fundraising drive if you can help out.

File this in the “brave… or stupid?” department.
I've been meaning to post these pictures for a little while (I don't think I have yet). I found these underneath a heater while cleaning. I don't know who they're from or how old they are. I think it's a mix of pu gong ying, xia ku cao, chuan xin lian, and bai hua she she cao, but I'm not really sure…

If you had a chance to become a superhero, would you take it?
'Cause I could really use some of that real ultimate power.

Now we'll move on to the “oh, the irony” department.
When you're thinking about the upcoming US election, it might be easiest to frame George Bush with his own words, so we can ask, “what did George Bush promise, and what did George Bush deliver?” The following are some of his campaign promises and comments (more):

The fundamental question is, 'Will I be a successful president when it comes to foreign policy?' ... I will be, but until I'm the president, it's going to be hard for me to verify that I think I'll be more effective.

We should never undermine the right of a person arrested to have their rights read to them. I did believe, though, that voluntary confessions should be allowed without a Miranda reading. The court didn't agree with my position. I'm now going to uphold the law.

[Referring to accusations he was corrupt and working for big business] It's frankly the type of politics people in America are sick of, this kind of finger pointing, calling names and trying to divert attention.

I'm the person that can change the tone of Washington, D.C.. Just give me a chance to be the president.

Whether you think it was right or wrong, Bush certainly has “changed the tone of Washington”… The Iconoclast, Bush's hometown paper liked what they heard in those promises, and endorsed him in 2000. However, looking at his record, his own hometown paper has decided to endorse Kerry (more).

Few Americans would have voted for George W. Bush four years ago if he had promised that, as President, he would:
* Empty the Social Security trust fund by $507 billion to help offset fiscal irresponsibility and at the same time slash Social Security benefits.
* Cut Medicare by 17 percent and reduce veterans benefits and military pay.
* Eliminate overtime pay for millions of Americans and raise oil prices by 50 percent.


Hey, it could be worse… he could be a Nazi like his granddad.

Oh, and saram got mefied (as did my latest article).

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
