New Coke Officially Sealed Into History

New York Times: Coca-Cola is dropping the "classic" label from their Coke cans, as to not confuse the younger generation who doesn't remember New Coke.

Thus the biggest soft drink blunder officially ends. New Coke is now just something you read about in advertising textbooks.

I wake up angry at Rachel Ray too!

NYPOST catches up with Anthony Bourdain:

When a local came bearing Fever Grass Tea, claiming, "Whatever ails you, this will cure you," the "No Reservations" host replied, "I wake every morning angry at Rachael Ray. Can you help me?" He then took a swig.

No one likes this woman. Why does she have a teevee show?

In Defense of Illinois Voters: They Hate This Too

My mom sent this to me. See, Judy Baar Topinka? We hate him too.

Um, Is Cameron from Ferris Bueller's Day Off in this?

Can't he get better work than a 15 second clip in a second-rate movie?

I just watched it. It wasn't that bad. You know. Meh. It's too short, for one thing. So many things are underdeveloped. And the main push is a little ridiculous.

Spoiler alert

For one thing, why did people have to commit suicide once coming in contact with the poison? It just seemed ridiculous. An excuse for something horrible that could have just been plain horrible. I mean, if people merely just dropped dead, or became incoherent and dropped dead, it would have been more believable.

But a toxin that gets into your bloodstream, effects your brain, and triggers something that makes you commit suicide? Nope. I don't buy it.

And the whole, I'm-kinda-emotionally-cheating-on-you was underdeveloped.

And it comes of as...just confused. So plants are doing this? Plants are mean? Shouldn't we kill them all for wanting to kill us? Um, couldn't they just send us a memo?

Facebook Gold Accounts Wha???, or, Has Facebook Jumped The Shark

What is this facebook gold business?? There isn't any good information online about Facebook Gold Accounts, so all I've got is this digg article.

At least someone knows a little about what's going on. Google isn't turning up anything...

Edit: Just an elaborate hoax. No jumping sharks here.

Bitter? Judy Baar Topinka? NEVER!

Someone's a Bitter Betty today. HuffPo reports that Topinka thinks that Illinois voters are just getting what they deserve. Um, lady, just 'cause you feel bad that you lost to a huge crook and crazy man, doesn't mean that its the voters fault. Even in 2006 people weren't all that sure about Blagojevich, but you failed to inspire us to change.

Way to blame the voters for your failed campaign.

Open Letter To The Red Line Metro Driver

Dear Red Line Train Driver on the Dupont 4:25ish to Shady Grove,

I commend your excellent service this afternoon. You were great, really. First, you informed anyone needing an elevator at Woodley Park Zoo/Adams Morgan that they could get a shuttle from the Cleveland Park Station. When we left each stop, you clearly said which station would be coming up next.

Before the Bethesda stop, you told us the time. 4:34 p.m.

This is the most helpful any driver has been. Like, ever.

I hope that during the Inauguration, the WMATA just cloned you, because you would be the most helpful on stressful occasions when the Metro system is overloaded.

Seriously. You need a raise.


Everyone on your train this afternoon

NASA hearts Tally Hall

NASA loves Tally Hall enough to come check out my blog. How nice.

Perhaps the advertsing agencies need Joan to make sure that mishaps like this don't happen?

Don't watch if you don't want the first episode of the new season BSG ruined slightly. This might be this worst product placement ever.

Tally Hall - Playing in the Sand

Still with the internet show, but its better than nothing. Still no definitive news on a next album.

Ugh, I've joined Twitter

Apparently, even old fogues have twitter and it was high time I joined it. Blame Dan, my boyfriend* for this development.

Its supposed to be good when I only have something small to say. Something that doesn't need its own post. This may or may not work out.

*He mentioned today that he only either gets called "Dan" or "my boyfriend" but the two are never joined together. He wants to be famous.
