Best. Movie Site. Ever.

Y'all gotta try this. Click on "Create your Simpsons Avatar" at the top, and you too can have a Groening-style rendering of yourself.

Here's mine:

All Vols must Vote

The ESPYS are coming up, and it's time to vote. You don't even have to vote for Peyton to show your Vol spirit, 'cause the Lady Vols(past and present) are all over the ballot. Good luck figuring out which bowler to vote for. I ended up picking the guy in the orange shirt. Don't forget to vote for Talladega Nights for best Sports movie, 'cause Jack McBrayer rocked that pit crew action!

Dave Grohl is so hot

Have I ever mentioned my intense infatuation for Dave Grohl? Just thought I'd mention it. Foo Fighters were just on MTV Live. Seriously, I love him. In a totally non-stalkery sort of way. Mmmmmm Grohl . . .

Happy Juneteenth!

I wonder how many of the folks enjoying the shopping, food, and performances at this past weekend's Georgia Sea Islands Festival knew why it always occurs around June 19th? It really should be a nationally recognized day of remembrance and reflection. I'm not advocating for another day off, but it would be nice if calendars would acknowledge the historical significance of this day. If you don't know what I'm talking about, google "juneteenth" and learn more!

Hyundai ad contains subliminal political advertising?

Check out this Hyundai ad:

I keep seeing it before movies, and I suddenly realized that there's some wonderful subliminal advertising for the Democratic Party in there! About 18 seconds in, notice the two historical figures who appear in the montage when Kelsy Grammer says, "Smart people are whom we've always counted on and admired the most." That's right, they were democrats: JFK and FDR. Pretty cool, huh? Thanks, Hyundai, for the extra boost. Unfortunately, my current favorite in the 2008 race does not have a name that lends itself to initialization. Can you imagine folks reminiscing 40 years from now about BO's administration? No, best to just call him Obama. Or Barack. I'll just be glad when we can call him Mr. President!

Obama on youtube

No, it's not the "crush" video. Please take a look at this video posted by the Obama campaign.

And, yes, I do have a bit of a crush on Obama, but I still love Joe Biden and John Edwards, too. That'd be some boy band, huh?

Help to stop the big coal give away

Congress could vote in the next fews weeks on a bill that would double our greenhouse gas emissions from planes and cars. It sounds crazy, but this is exactly what will happen if a current plan to use "liquid coal" passes. Coal is the dirtiest of fossil fuels and we have a serious global warming problem.

I signed a petition urging Congress to vote no on tax breaks and subsidies on coal. Can you join me at the link below?
