Video Of The Day: A Welshman Goes To Australia

Takes a minute to get going but stick with it. Good stuff from frequent contributor TheMovieGuru, who misses Dan Fogelberg.


Rerun Of The Day: The Tourist of Death

Ok, I realize The Tourist of Death isn't exactly new to the web. And I realize I've already run it here a couple of times; my apologies to my long-time readers. But on the off chance some of you have not seen it, here 'tis again. Because I love it and it still makes me laugh. The pics are all from


It all started with a photo.

This chilling picture turned up in the days following 9/11, and reportedly came from a camera found in the rubble of the World Trade Center. Was it really possible that someone managed to photograph one of the hijacked planes mere milliseconds before impact? And if so, what became of the unknown man in the photo, and the person(s) who took it?

The photo turned out to be a hoax, of course, and most people dismissed it as such. But, a few believers remained, and their numbers grew as more photos of the same mysterious man at other disasters began to surface. More and more people became convinced that this man was not some innocent sightseer in the wrong place at the wrong time, but something much more nefarious: a time-traveling harbinger of doom -- a Tourist of Death, if you will -- inexplicably present at every great disaster of the millennium, a witness to our suffering and mocker of our powerlessness to stop it.

The pictures you are about to see seem to support this theory. Are they
real, or are they hooey? Decide for yourself.

Suzer sent me this. Good gawd almighty. Try to stick with it until the chorus, if you can.


Give It A F*cking Rest, Oprah

Are you kidding me?

Ok, Okrah, we get it. You're unfathomably wealthy and oh-so-important. And charity is a great thing. But could you do it in a less vulgar, self-serving and self-righteous way? Don't worry, we'll still nominate you for sainthood, but how about getting out of the spotlight for five minutes first, mkay?

Oprah's Big Give... give me a big feckin' break already. Or at least give me some of that money.
