Happy Birthday Andy

I'll have a better post tomorrow. Just got back from having an awesome dinner with Andy and his friends and family. We went to a carnival and took pictures (in due time). We also got caught in a downpour and I lost a flip-flop in the street. I was appalled. I just washed my feet (twice) and am ready for bed. My computer(s) is (are) installing Windows XP SP2 as I type so I can't do much with the computer anyways.

I'll have details and photos soon.

"Everytime ... I See Your Face ...

... you're haunting me!"

I love the faces she makes when the paparazzi are hunting her down. Lately, Britters has been seen wearing actual shoes (finally) and a lot has been made of the fact that she is out with her assistant and without Kevvy (Click the picture to see a larger version). I no longer believe the break-up rumors. I'm pretty sure they are going to go ahead with the marriage. Britney is up for a few VMAs this Sunday and she and "a guest" are scheduled to appear. I'm hoping that she will do a surprise performance though. In any regard, I can't wait to see what she will wear -- I really can't wait to see what K. Fed will show up wearing. If he wears a wife-beater I swear I will scream! I can't even imagine what he would look like in a suit or something like that.

I must admit, as funny as Britney's face is it's not as hilarious as her assistant Felicia's face:

Hahahaha! Priceless!

Ninja Turtl ... REVEALED!

Stephanie found an exclusive exposé on the infamous Detroit graffittist known as Turtl. The has uncovered who Turtl is and tells the world HERE.

No one knew who he was, so he became known as the Turtle. No one knew what his turtles meant. An art gallery put a $1,000 bounty on his head. Former Wayne County Prosecutor Mike Duggan vowed to throw him in prison. For more than a year, he remained underground.

Law enforcement officials have established the identity of the Turtle, but they cracked the case too late. The new prosecutor, Kym Worthy, focused on Detroit's increase in violent crime and hindered by budget constraints, has made graffiti a low priority. She's not interested in the Turtle. Cops say they'll arrest him only if they catch him in the act. They are not following him.

And the Turtle?

He says he is no longer the Turtle. Or "Turtl," "Trdl" or "Turdl," as he variously tagged his drawings.

Interesting! His name is Ronald?! And the boy is WHITE! I never expected him to be a white boy. What a letdown. It's surprising that they are just going to let him go. There have been lots of articles (Writing On The Wall, Turtle Drawings Deface Detroit Landmarks, GRAFFITI: TURTLE MANIA) about how they were just itching to arrest this guy once he was found out.

If you are interested you can get your own Turtl apparel HERE.

Scherz [insists] his tagging days are over.

Sad day for Detroit Rock City.

Incidentally, Grambo @ is talking about this too but I got the email from Stephanie early this morning and just haven't had a chance to blog about it until now. But hey, great bloggers think alike.


It seems that Britney has been doing more than contracting communicable diseases from public restrooms. She has shot a commercial for her new fragrance called Curious by Elizabeth Arden. It was posted at but was taken down for some unknown reason. A very industrious (though grammatcially challenged) person made some screen captures and worked up a description:

Ok, now the background sound of the commercial is a heartbeat with some music, you see Britney and a guy opening their hotel room doors at the same time. They look at each other, like pause on each other for like few seconds then each one of them goes inside the room, then both of them get close to each other, while each of them is in their room, as you see the pic above, and as they touch the wall together you start to see quick video shots moving really fast, these shots include Britney and the guy kissing on bed, rolling in bed, a beach, a flower, a bull, kid holding 2 dolls, a real heart beating, and a door knob. Yeah, like freaky unrelated stuff. Then you go back to the scene where they where touching the wall. Britney removes her hands off the wall and goes back with a look like "what the hell just happened", it's like that touch caused her to see all these fast video shots in her brain. And that's it, then they show you a Curious Perfume picture. The commercial is 30 seconds by the way.

Sounds like a pretty cool commercial. I just know it, once she's back on MTV and looking all glam at public events all this white-trash behavior will be forgotten. Whatever, it's Britney and everyone will still love her.

Have you heard that GWB is a douchebag? His campaign is trying to use the Olympic Games for his political gain. The U.S. Olympic Committee has asked that he stop manipulating images in his political ads that appear to align the Olympic Games with his re-election campaign. The International Olympic Committee and the USOC have the authority to regulate the use of anything involving the Olympics ... An act of Congress, last revised in 1999, grants the USOC exclusive rights to such terms as "Olympic," derivatives such as "Olympiad" and the five interlocking rings ... It also specifically says the organization "shall be nonpolitical and may not promote the candidacy of an individual seeking public office." But, GWB has decided to use the AD anyways, his campaign will not pull the AD. Bush campaign spokesman Scott Stanzel said the ads will continue through Sunday, the final day of the Athens Games ... "We are on firm legal ground to mention the Olympics to make a factual point in a political advertisement," Stanzel said. What a shitty thing to do. I'm sorry but using images from the Olympics and from the 9/11 terrorist attacks is complete bullshit! I loathe that man and his entire administration. I cannot wait until we finally elect John Kerry as our next president.

Let's see what else is going on (I hate writing this line in some form or another every day, does anyone have a suggestion on what I should write instead?):

And that is all -- I'm off to work for a few hours and then the rest of the day unfolds. I'll be back as time (and goss) allows.
