The best basketball team in Oregon

February 29, 2008 at 6:34 pm (Portland, Sports)

…The PSU Vikings.

The win extended the Vikings’ Big Sky winning streak to 10 and raised their season record to 19-9, matching the highest win total in school history as a Division I program (19-9 in 2004-05 and 19-13 in 2006-07).

I don’t know if I should be glad or sad.  The only prospect we really have of any post season ball this year is the Big Sky tournament.  Oh well, at least I’ll get a good seat for cheap.  I really thought the Blazers were going to be good this year, but now I’ll be happy if they finish with a winning record.

Garfield minus Garfield

February 26, 2008 at 7:48 pm (Humor)

Oh my.  I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.  Actually, I laughed so hard I cried.  That might just be because I was such a huge Garfield fan when I was a kid.  I am assuming that these are actual Garfield cartoons, with the cat and his thoughts airbrushed out.  Whether or not that’s true, this is one of the most hilariously disturbing things I have ever seen.  This might not be work safe.  I had to go to the bathroom…seriously, I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.

Here is what the site says about itself:

Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor (sic) disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?

Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb.

Call Kimmy, Jon.  You have nothing to lose.

If the title of this post means anything to you, you absolutely must click here. Even if it doesn’t, and you want to see some really bad local commercials, do it.

Personally, I am glad to finally see what Kenny looks like. The last time I lived in the Burg, it was apparently before WTAP was capable of producing its own video. I had no idea what I was missing.

Quote of the Century

February 21, 2008 at 8:24 pm (Justice, Quote of the day)

Causing the back of a boy’s head to be placed against the clothed chest of a 23-year-old counselor is qualitatively different from causing a 12-year-old boy to place his tongue or his penis in the family dog’s anus.

The backstory is, unfortunately, tragic (note: it does not involve zooporn)
