Ed's latest E-Mail to me:

OMG Ben I had the SADDEST dream last night. You and I were in Bareback Mountain and Jake Whats his name and Heath Ledger were running around naked and I was working on building an Interstate Highway and then there was a cowboy ball and you were there, but you were wearing make up AND dressed like a cowboy and I was embarrassed and you were all "Just leave!!!" and I was all SAD, but then this punk rock group called "the Tuesdays" started playing and all the cowboys were wearing make up because thats what the Tuesdays wore, and then there was this RIVAL cowboy group that I worked with building the Interstate and they were all "lets kill the fag cowboys" and I was forced to pick a side and then there was this apocalyptic scene where the two cowboy gangs were going to have a final battle but then a jetliner crashed and we all joined forces to help the survivors. What does it all mean????

Do you want to go to JRs tonight?

I Want To Live On The Mountain

Goodness Gracious Me
So its been a month since I blogged, please forgive me I've been, like, totally busy and stuff.

First NYC for the Grantmakers in Education conference (excuse for SHOPPING!!! YAY!)

It was way rainy but fun to see LITTLE MAIA!

Ted Baker makes the most gorgeous but hideously overpriced clothes in Soho, I think. Didn't stop me from buyin one though! Loves it!

And now I'm into colored socks--Ed says I look like the Wicked Witch of the East with my feet hanging out from under a Kansas farmhous--anything that gets me that much closer to Judy is fine by me!

TIME TO VOLUNTEER! Everyone should be volunteering for something to make the world a better one. I'm here:



And FYI foir those who don't know already--Madonna rocks and the new song is the best from her since Ray of Light, easily. The whole album is supposed to emulate Saturday Night Fever--the new single "Hung Up" has even got an Abba sample in it! AMAZING!

I was totally pissed at TRL on MTV (seriously, I'm getting old. The only time I ever watch MTV anymore is when Madonna comes on--how s-a-d!) because they kept hyping the premiere of Madonna's new video for the entire hour, then played LITERALLY 10 seconds of it! SO MAD! But I should have known better, they don't play ANY videos through anymore--what kind of music channel are they anyway? Bastards.

2 Things, continued
So I went looking online for pics of him and stumbled across this one of him in a teensy tiny speedo--he doesn't look SO fat. Not that a speedo is the best look on him, but whatever, his mom is PATTY DUKE! The SECOND thing I noticed is how nicely he fills out that speedo--MOMMA DUKE he's H-U-G-E!!!

2 Things About Sean Astin
SO I read that Sean Astin, of Goonies and Lord of the Rings fame, was getting way fat. I recalled he was a little chubby in LOTR, but not Faaaaat... hard to imagine, especially considering his hunkiness in the early 90's:

SO RETARDED but Funny--From the Onion
Hey, You Got Something To Eat?

By A Goat
August 31, 2005 | Issue 41•35

Say, I'd like to eat a little something. You got something? What you got? Any kind of food is good. I just want something to eat. You must got something. I ain't desperate or nothing like that. Don't think I'm begging. I'm just asking here. No pressure. I just want to eat something. Wondering if you had something maybe. No big deal.

You gotta have something. Please. What is that? A thing to eat? I think it might be.

I'm not that hungry. I just ate. I could take or leave it. Got a handful of hard seeds? I'll take them. Pour them on the ground or just hold them out. You kidding? That would be great. Sure would. Whatever you got, really. It don't even have to be seeds. I'll take anything. Don't worry about me. I'm easy. Hey, anything you got. I'll try it. I got a open mind.

You gonna eat that shoe? I'll eat that shoe if you're not gonna eat it.

Come on, what you got? I just want to know. I don't have to eat it. I'm just curious. In truth, there's a good possibility I'll eat it. But still. I want to know. If you got just a morsel of anything, I'd be obliged. If I knew you were good for a scrap once in a while, I'd probably come back to you for more food sometimes. You wouldn't mind that. Of course not. You're my buddy. The food-giver. That's what I'd call ya.

I bet you got a nice pant leg. Lemme chew a hole in it. I could chew it until you yanked it out of my mouth. If you don't mind. I'm telling you, I could use a little something to chomp on. I could wait, but what have you got? I don't care very much one way or the other. Come on, give me a break over here. I just want something to nibble on.

Hey! What's down there? A piece of bread? Let's see what we got. No... No, this is a rock. I'm not going to eat a rock. What do you think, I'm crazy?

You keeping a sandwich in your pocket for later? I'd be happy to eat it for you now. You don't even have to take it out of the bag. I'll eat the plastic and everything. Or tinfoil. Don't make no never mind to me. Do you got anything that I could put in my mouth for just a minute or two? Lemme know. I'll take it off your hands. No worries.

Do you have any trash? I'll eat trash. You were gonna throw it out anyway. Hey, lemme eat it. Lemme at least taste it. If it's no good to eat, I'll know. I hate to see it go to waste, is all.

Got a balled-up tissue? Some paper towels? Coffee filters? Grounds, perhaps? Some cardboard? Insulation? All that sounds good to me. Just about anything like that would hit the spot for me about now.

A piece of corn on the cob. That'd do me. You got that? Would you mind going and picking me a ear from the cornfield? I don't care if it is seed corn or sweet corn or feed corn. I don't care if it's too hard to chew. I'll just swallow it whole. Just swallow it down. Who cares? I don't. Seriously, go over and snatch me one of them ears of corn. I'll get you back. Maybe I could eat something else for you later, something maybe that you're not interested in eating. Or maybe something that you intend to only eat half of. I might be able to eat the rest of it for you.

I've tried about enough of the grass around here to last me a while. I'm sick of this grass. This damned same grass day in and day out, I could just about... I take that back. This grass is okay. I'll eat it. It's pretty good. It's great, actually. I mean, it's okay. Could you grab me a handful of weeds from the ditch? Don't bother shaking off the dirt! That's a waste of time! Just bring it over as is. Wave that near my mouth and it's going down the belly hatch. I am not joking. I'll eat weeds. Just watch me. You give me a rotten apple, and I will eat that whole thing, seeds and all. Tear off a piece of bark for me, and it's gone.

Hey. Come on. Don't be greedy. I said I'd like a little something to eat. Put something in my mouth now. Let me chew something, you fucker.

Oh shit, man, I'm sorry. I didn't mean that. That was uncalled for. There's no problem. I'm really sorry, friend. Food-giver. That's what you are. There's the stuff. Food-giver. You're my friend.

Hey, by the by... You got anything to eat? Don't go out of your way on my account. It's nothing, really—I don't need nothing. But if you got something, I'll eat it.

Ed's the Best!

ED is the BEST pal a guy could ask for. We have the most awesome e-conversations. Like today, for example:

Ben: EDDIE! Did you get my voice mail on your work line? Your message is from wendesday... I WANT TO DO LUNCHES WITH ED CAUSE I MISS HIM! PLEEZE???

Ed: Yeses! I miss the BEN as well.  Waaaah! Have you noticed the lower humidity?  You know what this means. LAYERS SOON!!!JUBILATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Evan and I are double dating with Will and Caeb on Sunday night....


Ben: ugh please dont talk about will and caeb while im eating later, alright?

Ed: I see many, many monopoly nights and cabin trips to West Virginia!


Ben: oh my god i just threw up a little


Ed: Ya-YAY!


Ben: i loathe you


Ed: Lets all stop for brownies on the way back from our trip on the mountain train.... Hooray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Ben: i hope your car is crushed by a boulder on a mountain highway


Ed: Stop snacking at those "U-pick-em" blueberries, honey, cause when we get back to the cabin, I'm bakin' a pie!


Ben: I hope the burning, twisted wreck plummets down a ravine and isn't found till your bones have long since turned to dust

In The Face of Disaster, Racism Rears Its Ugly Hea

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

So in the midst of all the talk lately about the liberalization of American media, I've noticed how persistant the media is in portraying African American residents of New Orleans as criminals. Sucks, don't it... Black People Loot, White People Find, apparently...

2:17 pm
...you've got to wonder about the kind of legacy Bush is going to leave behind once he leaves office. I mean, it seems like since he came into office, America has had the most dire and inhuman years we've had possibly since the civil war...just think about some of the images and situations people may conjure up thinking about the Bush presidency thus far:

--Corpses floating through a drowned New Orleans
--Burning Twin Towers collapsing with thousands fleeing
--American citizens being beheaded on live Internet in Iraq
--Americans vetoing the Kyoto Protocols then bitching about the cost of oil when we pay less than most already
--Dozens of states rising up in an anti-gay backlash and passing homophobic laws
--America run into a nearly half-trillion dollar deficit scenario when we were in the black just a few years ago and a president who lowers taxes for the rich
--Americans being burned, flogged, and kileed then hung from bridges in Iraq
--Americans torturing Iraqi prisoners and taking pictures of it
--A presidency based on a flawed electoral college vote that disenfranchised more than 540,000 voters
--A president that basically skipped out on military service, yet somehow convinced half of America that a decorated war veteran was not patriotic enough to be president
--A government attempting to intervene in a man's right to let his vegetable wife die with dignity
--A nation that reversed a 20-year trend of improving schools and decreasing poverty

WTF happened to america, man? Im moving to the f'ing Netherlands...
