He is back, just when I needed him most.

Soilent Green is People...Its People!!!
I have made a very important decision. I have decided that from this day forth I will only get my television news from either the BBC or CNN International.
When I awoke from a bad nights sleep several days ago, the very last thing I expected to see on my TV was a bright red BREAKING NEWS graphic on CNN (US) that read "KILLER SPINACH, 1 DEAD, 100 MORE INFECTED." That warning has been playing on my TV every day since. We got the message the first time, don't eat bagged spinach (which by the way, ha to all you people that thought if something wrapped in dupont plastic its clean). I cant help wonder, despite the unfortunate souls with severe E.Coli symptoms, that this is some sort of conspiracy sponsored by a pharmaceutical company.
I keep imagining a room full of corporate masterminds conspiring on how to make Americans constipated quick. In fact I am so convinced that there is something sinister behind this horrible defamation of spinach that I am willing to wager a bet that within the next month Merck, Glaxo and others will be advertising a new drug certain to clear up your clogged pipes. I am sure the commercial is being shot right now somewhere in Burbank. You know the kind of commercial that you see during your morning TV routine where a woman wearing a white track suite is running on the beach while a fast speaking voice over announcer lists the side effects. I'll raise that bet and go on to say that the over the counter stomach aids like Malox, Pepto, Pepcid and the like all come out with special "loose stool" formulas by Christmas.
And even if in the very small chance this isn't a conspiracy I know with 100% certainty, someone is going to gain.
So, international news is where I will turn to from now on. Hungarians rioting in the streets of Budapest, Coverage of UN Week, Chirac wanting to negotiate with Iran, an apologetic Pope, and vital soccer scores just seem more relevant than 24 hour KILLER SPINACH coverage.
What do you think?

Confessions from an H&M Store
Ok Ok Ok, I did it. I didn't realize I did it, and no matter what popmuse says, I swear I didn't know I did it until after I did it.
I bought a shirt from the Madonna H&M line. I have to admit it caught my eye, and it was only after the sales girl scanned my mastercard did I see the Madonna logo. By then it was too late. I swear. Does that make me a bad person? I feel dirty.
In other news, Sean Penn is on Larry King. He's boring me. I think I'll put on my new shirt and parade around town instead.

Reach Out and Touch Me...and Jamelia
You know it was only a matter time before the Depeche Mode posts started. Take a listen to this amazing song, riffing and referencing DM.
