The celebrations for what would have been John Lennon’s 70th birthday, on October 9th of this year, have begun to take shape. On October 5th, EMI will reissue freshened versions of Lennon’s solo albums, along with some previously unreleased home recordings. And on the actual anniversary, Yoko Ono will hold her annual lighting of the Imagine Peace Tower on an island off ReykjavÌk, Iceland. “The fact that this year is John’s 70th birthday year is very special for us all,” Ono tells Rolling Stone. “We are all together celebrating John for having given us so much good energy in his lifetime and now.”
OMG! John Lennon would be 70!? I am now officially ancient. I sure miss him.

STURGIS, S.D. — Mean machines and burly bikers didn’t draw Amanda White to the world’s largest motorcycle rally. She had her sights set on a bow-tied nerd in an ill-fitting gray plaid suit: Pee-wee Herman.
Check this out from TopOfMyHead‘s blog. Ted Olsen is a conservative lawyer that successfully argued for the federal ruling that overturned California’s Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriages.
I can’t determine if Chris Wallace is being deliberately obtuse or playing the Devil’s Advocate. Either way, a conservative lawyer speaking up this way will have the Tea Baggers shitting in their pants.
BTW: Olson made Chris Wallace look like the ass he is. I may have to re-phrase my “All Republicans are assholes” to “Most Republicans are assholes”.
Sour cream and onion, barbecue, cheddar cheese… These are the flavors of Pringles we’re familiar with. But did you know everyone’s favorite potato-chip-but-not-quite also comes in numerous eccentric flavors you’ve probably never heard of? Yes, in other countries (Japan being the biggest culprit) you can get Pringles in flavors like garlic seafood, blueberry-hazelnut, Philly cheesesteak, and even braised pork.
C&T: Ya know, depending on where you’re from, these flavors aren’t ridiculous except to Americans. We’re a culturally ignorant lot.
Nice … but Grandma looks a little overwhelmed.
Looks like we’re catching up to the Romulans.
