The Times, They Are...

If you don't get this performance, you're operating on a level I don't really understand. It happened a year ago...

"He came in and played 'The Times They Are A-Changin'. A beautiful rendition. The guy is so steeped in this stuff that he can just come up with some new arrangement, and the song sounds completely different. Finishes the song, steps off the stage – I'm sitting right in the front row – comes up, shakes my hand, sort of tips his head, gives me just a little grin and then leaves. And that was it – then he left. That was our only interaction with him."

-Pres. Barack Obama [link]

And that's why we need Bob Dylan. To not kiss another politician's ass.

Nuclear Clarity

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Thank you to Rachel Maddow for explaining the nuclear situation in Japan. But I got ahold of Glenn Beck's response that will appear later this afternoon:

"Hello, my fellow patriots. If you are watching this right now, you - YOU - have been chosen. Chosen, why? WHY? Ask yourself this question instead: are you watching this show? Well, ARE YOU? I thought so.

Today I want to share with you the inner workings of a nuclear reactor. I know what you're thinking. Nuclear reactors. Piece of yellow cake. But I've been educating myself on the origins of nuclear reactors. And not just the origins, but the truth that the people in power don't want you to know. And why don't they want you to know? Because - BECAUSE PEOPLE! - they know that YOU could run a nuclear power plant better than them!

Let's jump in our time machine.

1933. What's going on in the world in 1933. Hmm, a World's Fair? No.... Oh, I REMEMBER. The Great Depression, anyone? Bad economy, people without jobs. Sounds familiar, don't it? And who comes to power? A-D-O-L-F H-I-T-T-L-E-R.

1945. Hitler is still up to no good. And America says it's time to kill Hitler once and for all. But Harry Truman gets a hunch that Hitler is hiding in J-A-P-A-N. The man loved sushi, and can you blame him? So Harry Truman gets in his plane and drops three bombs.

Three bombs. Not two, like the mainstream media wants you to believe. "Little Boy" and "Fat Man".... the S-O-N, the F-A-T-H-E-R, hmmm what's missing here.

I dunno, maybe T-H-E H-O-L-Y S-P-I-R-I-T.

Bomb number three? B-I-G J-E-S-U-S. But it didn't go off. Why, I am wondering, did the Jesus bomb not go off?

I think you know why. You feel it in your gut.

[Starts sobbing]

Well one patriot had to guts to speak the truth. And just how people will try to slander you when your mind's eye is open, they tried to take her down as well. Can we get a clip?

THIS is how a Nuclear Reactor works! It's not through a process on an atomic level called "Fizzin'" - that's what they may tell you but when have they ever been right? Did you know Obamacare provides X-Ray coverage for cancer patients? Why is he so interested in learning about how cancer is formed? What do we really know about X-Rays anyway???

As always, you need to educate yourself. Because I love this country. [sobbing] And I don't want to become Japan. When we come back... Earthquakes. George Soros. Totally different things. Or are they?"

[cue sad music]
[and fade into]
[and star wipe...]

Jackson Poltruck

A truck carrying 8000 gallons of printer ink crashed.

But we here at TCRM know what really happened: the "Whatever Dreams May Come" bomber strikes again!

Things brobot can be brogrammed to say that will make you question his brothenticity:

"Check out those girl's tits. They are equal in volume and mass."
"Let's grab some twelve ounce cans of beer and launch them 45 degrees over the overpass."
"What time is the matchup between the New York Knicks thirty three wins and twenty nine losses and the Miami Heat forty three wins and twenty losses?"
"I'm going to make a leak."

Armus, Skin of Evil

On this episode of Stark Trek TNG, "Skin of Evil" Troi is held captive on the planet Vagra 2 by Armus, a sadistic oil-based creature that "delights in taunting the rescue team" (Time Warner listings). I genuinely loved when he struck a deal with the team, then immediately burned them by saying "Oops, I changed my mind." Then this. (video)

From behind-the-scenes...

It's All Downhill

VCA 2010 RACE RUN from changoman on Vimeo.

What struck me about this, besides the insanity of it, is the eerie quiet of a downhill biker. There's no engine to block out the sound of your breath. And even crazier, I was gasping in fear during his drops... and he's totally cool about it!

Also... why has there not been a great biking game since ESPN's X-Games?

Holy shit, that came out in 1995...
