You Say You Want a Revolution....



This is EXACTLY what should have happened in America after the 2000 and 2004 elections. The citizens of Iran are FAR from complacent, and good for them! They saw corruption in their leadership, and they took it to the streets.

Imagine if we did this here. Would we have still gone to Iraq? Would there have been a 9/11?

Every time I see those tea-bagging idiots on television I ALWAYS think to myself "where the hell have these people been for the last 8 years?!" If you ask me, it's all bigotry, masquerading as indignation.

Adolph Hitler, now in glorious color.

Not that I'm a fan, or anything...but seeing true color images of what you've only seen and known in black & white is pretty amazing to me. It's the reason why Spielberg shot Schindler's List in black & white.

But these are pretty spooky-- makes it that much more realistic. It's amazing what a little color can do. Shot between 1936 - 1943, these images where shot by Hitler's personal photographer named Hugo Jaeger, which he hid during the war. The story of how they got into the hands of Life Magazine (including an encounter in which American soldiers found, then forgot, about them) can be found at Life.com.

Bill's Dead.

I just saw the announcement on CNN. David Carradine was found dead in his hotel room in Beijing.

He was 73 years old.

UPDATE: Apparently, he hung himself...in the closet of his hotel room. Naked.
