And You Thought I Was Dead!

Nope. Just bored with you, Internetz. You memes and things. Just sick and tired of you being boring. And you know what I’m talking about.

Euripedes

Eurpides, who mighta said that all things that were consumed in moderation would also be awesome. I'm paraphrasing.

That being said, I like to hang out here. Guess who I am! It’s called All Things in Moderation. It is a blog of different political persuasions talking to each other moderately. It’s thoughtful. Don’t go unless you are smart and can control your nasty self.

Linsday Lohan Gets Starring Role in Prison Drama

Lindsay Lohan is going to jail.

Lindsay Lohan Goes To Jail

All I gotta say is: about time. Maybe she’ll get . . . scared straight!

It’s turns out, You Do Mess with the Lohan. Because The Lohan is a Mess.

Okay, So It’s Been Forever, Peeples

“Greetings, Programs!”

I know, I know. I’m not promising to do it more. But, that having been said, plenty of cool news is coming out about Tron:

Tron

Tron, Tron Baby. Word to yo muthah!

New Version of Tron In HD on TV on Wednesday Night! Now, isn’t that cool? But that’s not all. Blue Sky Disney talks about what’s upcoming with Tron Legacy, which I find very exciting.

Tron’s going to be coming on Blu-Ray! I know I’ll be picking that up.

Lots of stuff on the recent debut of the Tron Legacy Trailer, plus commentary on how Disney effed up this particular marketing gimmick by making people jump through hoops and stand out in the rain and wait forever for 1 look at the trailer and a lousy T-shirt.

And keep tuned to Tron Sector for the latest in super-groovy Tron News.

And I like Tron. If you haven’t guessed.

ACORN Busy Community Activating Child Prostitution

Is anybody really surprised that ACORN is involved in tax evasion and, potentially, child prostitution? Seriously?

Random Acorn Person. Not the prostitute in question. Just one of the ACORN members that help make fraud and deceit happen.

The Wall Street Journal covers just how rotten to the core ACORN is.

In other news, you people are interested in the Motorola Cliq, a me-too, been-there-done-that phone from Motorala. Yawn.

The Morotal Cliq With Motobore. I mean, Motoblur.

In still other news, hot Asian Yale Grade student Annie Le disappeared days before New York wedding. Hmm.

Anne Le disappeared mysteriously.

Hopefully, she’ll be found. Maybe she just got cold feet. At this point, that’s the best possible outcome.

Okee-dokee. More laterz, my peoplez.

Nothing New On the InterWebs. Let’s Talk Groovy Online Graphic Novels!

Seriously. If you haven’t taken a look at Athra, the online graphic novel by Nathaniel Sullivan, do yourself a favor and tage a gander.

One of the Many Hot Chicks That Plague Athra, Our Hero.

One of the Many Hot Chicks That Plague Athra, Our Hero.

It’s seriously groovy. Do you doubt it? It’s certainly better than any of the crap you Internetz is searching for right now.

Athra, Who Bears a Suspicious Resemblance to a Young Nathanlie Sullivan (Just a Coincidence, I'm Sure) Talking to Another Hot Chick.

It’s mega groovy. Have you gone to Athra.net yet? Well, go, go! What are you waiting for?

A whole big groovy page. One of my favorite pieces of panel art . . . so far . . . in the ultra-awesome Athra graphic novel. Which is ultra-awesome.

Big lips. Big eyes. Makes for the perfect woman. But she’s hot for Athra, so don’t get your hopes up, Internetz.
The hot chicks won't leave Athra alone. Why? Because he's totally bad-ass. Don't believe me? Read it for yourself then, suckah!

That’s it for today. More later. Just go read it. Buy a copy. Support the arts. Then, when it’s out, go see the movie. Apparently a law has been passed that every graphic novel must be turned into a movie, so it’s gonna happen to Athra. No doubt.

Jon Gosselin Is Now World’s Biggest Scumbag

I’m not saying it. Per se. But talent bookers, who help keep d-list celebrities employed and making money, are. Check out E! Online’s profanely named Answer Bitch on Jon’s booking problems.

Jon Gosselin Describes Himself with his Shirt.
Jon Gosselin Describes Himself with his Shirt.

Which is all too bad. Jon was actually kind of sympathetic when his uber-beeyotch of a wife was needlessly and constantly biting and sniping and trying to crush his soul in service of her high-and-might queendom.

Now, he’s utterly unsympathetic. He’s responded to a nasty insult by getting in his car and running over the insulter’s cat. Then setting their house on fire.

He’s gone from being a kind of nice, if spineless, guy to a ballsy, but still often passive-agressive, creep.

Like when he had some skank he had shagged a few times come watch the kids while he was filming his segment on Jon & Kate. And Kate wanted to come check on the kids, and he wouldn’t let her in, and she called the police–uber-beeyotch at work, yes, but still–and then the police told her she had to go away.

That whole “sharing the house with your former spouse that you went through an ugly divorce with for the sake of a reality television show” is a bad idea, BTW.

This weekend, he got a gig hanging around at the MGM Grand Hotel or something in vegas, and, according to People:

During the two hours he was present, Gosselin, sporting shorts and a collared shirt, was spotted collecting a few phone numbers and mixing drinks for scantily dressed women.

Well, at least it doesn’t look like he’s planning on settling down again. Clearly, getting married is not his gig.

 

Yes, I’m Looking at DirecTV Again, But . . .

There are always interesting offers for Direct TV, especially if you still us cable (in my case, Comcast) like I do. But I have a bundled Cable/Internet account and can still do something with the basic cable signal I can’t do with DirecTV . . . I can split it and send it all over the house. I think we have 6 TVs fed with basic cable now. For no additional cost whatsoever. I can find no way to do that with sattelite television. Just can’t.
I Can Hook Up As Many TVs as I Want to to Cable, With Not Extra Equipment and No Extra Money.

Boy, if only I just had one or two TVs. The prices, especially for new sign up, just can’t be beat with DirectTV. There’s a 200+ with HD DVR HD package that’s just $54.99 a month  . . . admittedly only for the first 12 months, but still. For a basic family entertainment package for $29.99, which is apparently the every day low price. Only 45+ channels, not quite as good as cable, but it’s a great price . . . almost nothing available from the cable companies that amounts to $30 bucks a month. Still, there’s no easy, inexpensive way to share that signal among multiple TVs, not to mention no way to make it possible for one person to watch something in the living room while someone else watches something different in the bedroom and somebody else watches something else in the kitchen, which happens a lot in my house.

Then there’s the Internet. I can get DSL, but I end up paying the same amount for Internet access that I do now. Satellite television is a better deal for people who don’t need a lot of TVs going.

All of which isn’t to say it’s not possible to have a house with seven TVs hooked up to your DirectTV. It’s just not cheap, and thus not practical for me. And I believe I have to have one or two extra satellite dishes installed to boot. Sigh.
