You woke me up in the morning
To say, He is risen.
And I replied with a smile,
He is risen indeed.
And somehow you always leave the room
Alive with truth and beauty
And carry yourself like you know
That it's all just a matter of time
I said, But maybe I'm too far down this time.
Too proud to hope too weak to climb.
But you just pierce through me with eyes
And I know I'm done
And I can
And carry yourself like you're sure of it
Like the stitches dissolved
And the wounds all heal in time
Your words are giants next to mine
And your thoughts are giants
I only hope that someday
I might resemble you in
Even the smallest way
I only hope that
You can be proud of me


still such an incredible song.

this clip shows President Bush responding to a reporter at a press conference. Bush says Iraq had nothing to do with Sept 11 and that no one in the administration ever insinuated that.

from thinkprogress.org

To justify the war, Bush informed Congress on March 19, 2003 that acting against Iraq was consistent with “continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.”

watch the clip, read the article, be even more ashamed of this government

KFC Famous Bowl review [16 Jun 2006|10:34am]

KFC Famous Bowls!

I'm a man and I like to eat like a man. In the commercials KFC presents an implied definition of eating like a man as eating various ingredients thrown into a bowl without regard for presentation or any rhyme or reason. KFC has joined the mentality that has run its partner Taco Bell for years. Taco Bell only has about 5 or 10 different ingredients and as their menu shows, they are simply working their way through the different permutations of those ingredients. This is why everything you buy from Taco Bell tastes pretty much the same -there is only so much you can do with beans and tortillas. I do give KFC points in that they are upfront about the methodology. From their website: "All the KFC favorites you know and love served in a convenient easy-to-eat bowl!" That's honest (once you figure out they mean the bowl is easy to eat out of, not easy to eat). Meanwhile, Taco Bell heralds each new permutation as a sort of fast-food Messiah. Taco Bell really should just quit naming things and either implement a numbering system or just refer to everything by listing the ingredients. I digress...

This product was smaller than I expected. I'm not sure if it was tricky camera angles or all the machismo that made me expect a giant bowl, but I was instead met with a moderately sized bowl of whatever KFC had in its inventory. It didn't really matter, though, as the layer of starch upon starch was quite filling. The size of the Famous Bowl makes one question whether or not you're getting your $3.99 MSRP worth. Depending on the availability of the Popcorn Chicken (insert rant about limited availability of products) you can easily assemble your own Famous Bowl for what I imagine would be a good bit cheaper. Let's list the reasons you might take each approach:

Reasons you might enjoy making your own Famous Bowl
  1. You really want to save a few bucks
  2. You want that sense of accomplishment of having stuck it to the Colonel
Reasons you might enjoy purchasing an official Famous Bowl
  1. You really want that sense of accomplishment of having eaten like a man
  2. You love commemorative cheap "easy-to-eat" plastic bowls
  3. You need that great feeling of knowing you made a teenager die a little inside to throw slop in a bowl
  4. You want to show mommy how the piggies eat

Really, this is a sort of trough that for $3.99 KFC throws whatever they have into for you to eat. This should be insulting, but it is so darn convenient.

As for taste, there isn't much to say. If you like these items separately and aren't the type that hates having your corn and mashed potatoes touch, you'll like this.

The million dollar question is what makes these bowls so famous? It really takes some guts to introduce a product pre-declared as famous. I suppose only time will tell what history remembers them for...

She tied herself to a heresy and wed herself a drunk.
Before that there was symbolism; an explosion she forgot.
