McCain Being Monitored for Spontaneous Combustion

So, apparently someone set fire to Gov. Sarah Palin’s home church. While authorities are still uncertain as to who the culprit(s) could be, some (me) have already begun to point fingers.


According to Central Mat-Su Fire Chief Matt Steele (a fireman AND his last name is Steele? I bet he scores with church ladies all the time), “It’s hard to say at this point. Everything is just speculation,” he said. “We have no information on intent or motive.” However, I think it’s pretty clear that either the guys above were involved or a black metal scene is burgeoning in Alaska.

Palin, who was not at the church at the time of the fire, stopped by Saturday. Her spokesman, Bill McAllister, said in a statement that Palin told an assistant pastor she was sorry if the fire was connected to the “undeserved negative attention” the church has received since she became the vice presidential candidate Aug. 29.–MSNBC

After hearing this statement, McCain’s aides quickly put him on a 24-hour spontaneous combustion watch.

The Jesus and Mary Chain – Just Like Honey & Inside Me (Live)

And you thought Axl Rose was a hard-ass…

From the Lancashire Evening Post:

The singer in an Italian teen gothic metal band and her brother stabbed the band’s guitarist dozens of times – because he did not play well enough.
Police in Genoa, on Italy’s north-western coast, said the 16-year-old victim remained in hospital.

His life is not in danger. Police said he was attacked after a band rehearsal.

The 18-year-old singer, Cristina Balzano, and her 16-year-old brother, the band’s bass player, were arrested on charges of premeditated attempted murder.

The victim has accused both suspects of stabbing him after an argument over the (sic) his ability to play guitar.

Klaus Nomi on “TV Party”

Is it really almost 4:00 a.m.? 

Today Travis and I had another minor marathon of Twin Peaks, when perhaps we should’ve been outside enjoying the 60+ weather before Nature turns Oklahoma into a hockey rink on Monday.  But who needs Vitamin D when you have David Lynch?

After lusting over Audrey Horne for a couple hours, Brett and Blake came over and we caught up on The Office so that we could all lust over Jim because he is so NICE and so puppy dog CUTE. 

Then Halley joined the fun and we watched The Dark Knight again so that we could lust over either Christian Bale or Heath Ledger, depending on personal preference for chisel-cheek Brits who act like Americans with weird superhero accents or dead guys in makeup.  Too bad the movie somehow caused Blake to gain two pounds.  Hahaha.  What a fatty.  My real question of the night was how tiny little Halley was able to eat nearly an entire box of dry cereal while we watched the movie.  I think she might not be a human.

On the drive home I was unable to find the button on my Civic that turns the car into a motorcycle.  I knew someday I’d regret not buying an Accord.

Klaus Nomi anyone?  Anyone out there at all?  Should I keep blogging or just put “The Correct Use of Soap” on the record player and talk into the mirror?
