pelican't touch this.

you really can't.

anyone who knows me knows that I have good taste in music (I like to think of it as 'impeccable' or 'advanced'). so when I say that pelican is one of my favorites, that carries some weight. not only are they an amazing live band and a good group of dudes, they also have introduced me to some amazing new music. last time they pulled through town they brought red sparowes with them, and on this jaunt they brought an incredible band called russian circles from chicago (why is every band from chicago or canada these days?).

although i guess stephen fuckface karnes gets credit for the sparowes...but my love affair truly blossomed when I saw them perform live.

anyway I was warned about russian circles from the DOC chicago chapter (wu) and they did not disappoint. I highly recommend checking out their album 'enter' and the band on myspace. a three-piece that sounds like an orchestra. they are the balls. and heavy drinkers, which is nice.

here are some highlights from recent bulletins for you kids.

Religion is so stupid. Look at all this bullshit about Tuesday, 6-6-06:

catholics trying to be funny.
the rapture (not the indie band from new york). this site lets you know how scared to be at all times, and reminds you to ABP- always be prayin'.
math nerds.

Hilarious. The world didn't end, and the Eagles of Death Metal show was supposedly amazing. Although I've said it before and I'll say it again, if I died watching Longman do his little bounce dance to 'Boy's Bad News' I'd die a happy man.

Also, was anyone paying attention when they took the gay marriage ban to Congress? Not only did Bush and his cronies not get the 2/3rds needed to make it an amendment, they didn't even get the majority of votes- in fact- they got one less vote than when they first tried to push this through in `04. Listen to how awesomely deluded Republicans are:

"We were hoping to get over 50 percent, but that didn't happen today," said Sen. David Vitter, R-La., one of the amendment's supporters. "Eventually, Congress is going to have to catch up to the wisdom of the American people or the American people will change Congress for the better."

Amazing! Oh, it gets better. Check this out.

"The Republican leadership is asking us to spend time writing bigotry into the Constitution," said Sen. Edward Kennedy (D) of Massachusetts, which legalized gay marriage in 2003. "A vote for it is a vote against civil unions, against domestic partnership, against all other efforts for states to treat gays and lesbians fairly under the law." In response, Hatch fumed: "Does he really want to suggest that over half of the United States Senate is a crew of bigots?"

I think you, Mr. Hatch, are in for a rude awakening. You are a bigot. So is your crew.


More proof that Ann Coulter is a giant fucking cunt. Despite my own views on what may or may not have happened on that day, I certainly think that saying a bunch of widows are taking advantage of their 'celebrity' simply because they donated to the other party is pretty fucking shitty. What do you expect from some dumb Republican bitch*? I hate her as much as I hate Zell Miller and green peppers. And I'm a man who hates his green peppers.

*Initially I had the phrase 'cum dumpster' instead of bitch, but I thought it was a pretty filthy word and sounded gross, so I removed it. However I've been laughing about it all morning, so hence this little footnote.
