Lifestyle Buzz Bush declares January 2nd an official "day of mourning." Time to dryclean that black veil! It isn't enough that you'll be dragging your depressed hungover self to work after a week of binge drinking and a less-than-underwhelming New Year's. You can now add Gerald Ford to your long list of Things to be Sad About.
Lifestyle Buzz New tattoo ink can be removed with one easy laser procedure. Nothing says "I love you" like getting your true love's name emblazoned across your body. Using "smart permanent" tattoo ink says "I kind of love you, for now atleast," and is a much safer option.
Science Buzz Scientists are finding an unexpected relationship between knitting and math. Put down those little baby booties and knit a Lorenz manifold for the scientist in your life instead. It makes a perfect gift for anyone who's getting their PhD in math, and looks like it could make a very lovely avant-garde brooch that has "chaotic chic" written all over it.
Political Buzz $2 Billion dollars in fraud and growing. Meanwhile, John Edwards should be dropping by any minute now.... It was only a year and a half ago, and Katrina seems like a vague dystopian dream. Unfortunately, things are still pretty glum - houses are stripped, people still haven't received their government aid money. You can't even walk down Bourbon Street drinking a giant daiquiri without feeling a little bit sad. Here's an update of the newsworthy blips that have surfaced recently.
Tech Buzz Get the sounds of the blue-throated macaw and other endangered animals on your phone for free. I don't know about you, but I'm so sick of mp3 songs as ringtones. They may as well all be called "Traffic" because that's what they sound like on most cellphones. These ringtones are cuter and more politically correct than that tired 50 cent song you've currently got. Support your interspecies friends!
TV Buzz New sketch comedy show on Adult Swim will premiere Feb 11, 2007. If your old dvd re-runs of Mr. Show are wearing thin, here's a new obsession for you. Tim and Eric's brand of absurdly retarded humor is kind of art-punk. Their fans are scarce, but totally rabid in a creepy, homo-erotic way. Enjoy!
Tech Buzz The new search engine from Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, said to rival Google. Whoa! Shakeup in the tech community! Can an online encyclopedia rival the unharnessed power of Google?

Lifestyle Buzz More adventures from the frontier of the War on Christmas. Trending the War on Christmas is so fun, it's like we're not even working. Thankfully, there are so many pro-active Jesus-haters doing blogworthy things these days. Merry Christmas! It was either this or the "War on Fatties."
Tech Buzz The co-founders of Skype and Kazaa bring you this new peer-to-peer technology which could revolutionize the way you watch television. The Venice Project is generating buzz of Zune vs iPod proportions, being called the potential YouTube killer. The only snags are that it's not browser-based like YouTube, and so far, it only works on a PC. One redeeming factor is that it was developed by a respected Swede and not Microsoft. We'll see how far that takes it....
Bill O'Reilly proclaims that the secular progressive agenda is starting a "War on Christmas."
Sylvester Stallone stages comeback with the upcoming sequels Rocky Balboa and Rambo IV.
