Wrong Number

March 31st, 2003 by Ryan Ozawa · 1 Comment · Miscellaneous

How’s this for a bizarre way to start off a week? My cell phone just rang with a call coming from the 732 area code (New Brunswick, New Jersey, according to this lookup site). I picked it up and said, “Hello, this is Ryan.” “Hi,” came a woman’s voice, obviously holding back some amount of […]

Fair and Balanced?

FoxNews biased? No surprise, really, there. Still, makes this little piece of satire taste extra nice. [MeFi] Myself, I’m still a little irked at Joe Moore, who irks everyone, on some level, all the time. No sooner had I read about media consultants advising outlets against appearing too negative on the war — and learning only […]

On the Homefront

Okay, given the war, my latest letter to the editor published in the Star-Bulletin seems a bit trivial. But I did write it three weeks ago, before the madness began. War talk, though, has pretty much clogged the editorial pipes at newspapers everywhere. Besides, at least I got another dig in at Jeremy via his […]

Hmm. I suppose imitation is the sincerest form of flattery… (It’s okay. Burt’s a friend.)

Chicago’s Finest

Amy Partridge posts a brief account of being arrested and detained for over 20 hours for peacefully protesting in Chicago to the Chicago Indymedia site. “As with all of those around me that got arrested I did not want or intend to get arrested,” she writes. “At least three women that I met were tourist […]

Now this is a hobby I could get into. You know, with all that free time I’ve got these days…

Not Insane

Man, I should’ve joined that Saddam dead pool. Soon after watching the “live” address by Saddam Hussein following the unexpected target-of-opportunity strike on an Iraqi bunker (some 26 hours ago), I posted a theory to MetaFilter that the target was Saddam himself, that he was already dead, and that the video was not only probably […]

Oh, god, how I love Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I don’t care if, technically, they’re an AOL property. That show’s a highlight of my week. It’s impossible to do anything else when it’s on… and the Danzig episode had me laughing so hard my ribs ached. “That is very wrong! You cling to you pathetic […]

Your tax dollars at work. Does swapping “Freedom” for “French” defame the French, or equate the French with Freedom? And why would the French care if we took their name off a food product they have nothing to do with in the first place?  [MeFi] How much more ridiculous can things get? How much more dense […]
