Out of the Blue

Expert panel National disaster alert system in disarray... very comforting, especially in light of the evacuation instructions we received in the mail yesterday in case Indian Point makes like Three Mile Island on us... looking at the escape routes they outline and considering the crowds that will need to use them, I've determined that it would be faster to walk to escape the area... in fact, I think it would be faster to swim.

Isn't that your modus operandi as well? Seems to be based on the questionable links you post here.

Blue, if disaster movies have taught us nothing else, you should know that your best bet for escaping the traffic madness is to make sure you have an enduro or dirt bike to take off road to circumvent the

But if the Simpson’s have taught us nothing else, it is that pollution will save us from natural disasters! Crappy movie staring a bad actor, or odd yellow people with only 3 finger and a thumb…..hmm…I chose the mutant hand people.

I am going to go get drunk in my igloo and cook some ham to go with my eggs with maple syrup.

Sounds like fun to me!

Blue, I am appalled by your Canadian stereotype next to the date in the news today. Thank you for alienating your Canadian fan base and good day to you for I am going to go get drunk in my igloo and cook some ham to go with my eggs with maple syrup. I forgot I was going to go play some hockey too.

Respect for the one legged dancer. That guy was amazing.

Are the Beasties actually political?
I never thought of "Cookiepuss" as a real protest song before.

I guess this is why it took them so long to release such a crappy album. They were busy fighting the "tyranny of the Bush regime" with a lackluster flash game.

Craptacular. The B-boys aren't the folk I look to for political information. And they don't even give any reason behind it - just battle against the evil government, because the Beastie Boys say so.
