Love, dogfights, and tacos

I rewatched Amores Perros this past weekend, one of my favorite movies. It also happens to have a stellar soundtrack with this Nacha Pop song being the highlight. Mix in some Gael Garcia eye candy and you are pretty much set for the next two and a half minutes. For your viewing pleasure:

Daily dose of jew hating

With all of these angry and border line violent anti-Israel protests going on all over the world these days, one can see how easy it is to hide behind a cause and inevitably reveal their anti-semitism. As scary as it is, it makes sense for the general public to keep silent about antisemitism when it is covered up by a demand for 'freedom' and an 'end to oppression'. However when there is no cover up in sight, when it is publicly clear that one should hate the Jews and strangle them and eat their heads, and I still do not see anyone coming out against it, this is what is more frightening than ever. Hatred accepted by the general public is a slippery slope.

Don't Hate

I don't really understand the whole hating on Valentine's bit. I feel like if the holiday doesn't mean anything to you, there's no reason to be all bitter about it. The way I see it, we should thank all of those people who spend money on crappy flowers and three course meals because at least it makes them happy and stimulates the economy to boot!

And anyway, if we should be thankful for anything on Valentines day it should be Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, my absolute favorite of the Charlie Brown specials. Vince Guaraldi's warm jazzy piano plays throughout and there's the classic good griefs, and brooding Charlie pining over a redhead and my personal favorite - Schroeder at the piano being obsessed over by the slightly psycho Lucy. Schulz is truly a genius.

If you are going to talk about yourself all of the time...

At least try to sound like an interesting person.

Obama's new press secretary

Have we found him?

I have never seen anyone so happy to get a meaningless answer than this guy.
