What should Barack Obama have put on the Queen's iPod? | Music | guardian.co.uk
Apple can now officially proclaim the iPod fit for a Queen. President Obama and first lady Michelle paid a visit to Buckingham Palace yesterday, and presented the monarch with an iPod stuffed with Broadway songs, as well as a rare songbook signed by American composer Richard Rodgers, not to be confused with Paul Rodgers, who is in the other Queen.

Watchdog rules on Coca-Cola's rotten lies

Coca-Cola has been ordered to publish corrective advertisements over its controversial "Motherhood & Myth-Busting" advertising campaign featuring actor Kerry Armstrong which came under widespread attack last year.

Using the wholesome motherly image of Armstrong to convince parents the soft drink was "kiddy-safe", the advertisements claimed that Coca-Cola did not make children fat, did not rot their teeth and was not packed with large amounts of caffeine.

Such claims were myths, Armstrong vowed in full-page print advertisements which ran nationally on October 11 last year.

Gawker - America Is Losing The Class War War! - Uk

All the world government big shots are meeting in London tomorrow for the G20. Really, they're much more worried about the hardtothemuthafuckincore protesters than the economy thing. Are UK protesters putting American protesters to shame?

We're forced to admit that they are. Also, the capitalist pigs on the opposite side of the protesters are putting their meek, chastened American counterparts to shame, by telling the protesters to fuck off:

The NY-20 Absentee Ballots: A Potential Tie? |TPM

The NY-20 special election is now going to come down to the absentee ballots. For one thing, the Election Night numbers between Democratic candidate Scott Murphy and Republican Jim Tedisco are in a virtual tie as the vote totals are still being double-checked, but this does not take into account any absentee votes. So the next question becomes: Who exactly were the absentee voters?

The only reason I'm posting this is because I was at Union College when Jimmy Tedisco was the star of their basketball team.  I can remember a very cold day in Schenectady, NY, crunching through the ice/snow to Memorial Field House (I remember it looking like a big barn in the twilight) with my good friend Vic and his younger brother Fred (we're all stoned, of course), going in briefly, and Union is playing somebody, and there's Jimmy doing one of his beautiful set shots.  Great shooter.  Anytime I want, close my eyes, and I'm there, 35+ years ago.  In the photo at TPM Jim looks really old. What's that all about?  Oh yeah, I'm an old sh*t too.  Forgot for a minute.

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
