Ry Cooder - Let's Have A Ball (Santa Cruz 1987)

Another Ry Cooder video! Thank god for YouTube!
Ry Cooder - Crossroads

A Ry Cooder video is a rare and wonderful thing, even it this one was created to promote a sub-par movie.
Buffalo Springfield - Mr Soul

How old am I? Old enough to remember Hollywood Palace, and great bands lip-synching to great songs.

This clip is just sooo weird.

I stumbled onto after Googling "ken blackwell jesus."

Fair and balanced? Certainly not. Funny? Believe it!

Mark Jenkins: Street Installations

These photos from Mark Jenkins: Street Installations are genuinely funny.

» Publicly selected and funded investigative reporting: Can it work? | Between the Lines | "Today, Rosen announced an experiment he is calling NewAssignment.Net. Although the domain is not yet active, the basic idea behind NewAssignment.Net is for the public to not only play assignment editor by collaboratively deciding what stories require the devoted attention of an investigative reporter, but also to help furnish that reporter with whatever information, facts, evidence, funding, and other resources that may be necessary to tell a complete and truthful story."

A fascinating idea. Will it work?

Giant Girl Doll

Whenever I think the human race is genetically predisposed to destroy itself, something like this comes along to restore my faith. If people can put this much effort into something this strange and wonderful, there is hope for us yet.

Me and the boys having fun at the Towne Fryer. Early reports indicate that despite the rainy afternoon, Bloggapalooza was a success.

Jon Judy

Jon Judy: "The lumberjack match is an old-school stipulation, one that’s been around for so long that now it’s passé and hard to get excited over. The idea is that after a long, drawn-out feud in which the heel routinely escapes the righteous wrath of the face by hightailing it back to the lockers and losing by countout, the fans will be hungry to see a blowoff match, one in which the feud finally ends and there is no way for the heel to abandon the fight."

Jon Judy is a professional educator who moonlights as a ring announcer for local semi-pro wrestling matches in Canton. He's also a very good writer, and his insight into the business and the sub-culture is fascinating.
