Original Extra Crispy!

Everyone likes KFC chicken. The flavor of the original recipe is awesome. However, I occasionally get the extra crispy because I love the texture. Why can’t they do a hybrid and combine the two?

California Surgeon Used Human Fat to Power Car


Friday, December 26, 2008

A former Beverly Hills, Calif. liposuction doctor claimed to have the environment’s best interests at heart when he began fueling his and his girlfriend’s SUVs with human fat sucked out of his patients.

Unfortunately the practice was illegal, according to California state health officials.

An investigation by the California public health department revealed that Craig Alan Bittner created “lipodiesel” from his patients’ fat and used it to power his Ford SUV and his girlfriend’s Lincoln Navigator, Forbes.com reported this week.

“The vast majority of my patients request that I use their fat for fuel — and I have more fat than I can use,” Bittner wrote on his now defunct Web site. “Not only do they get to lose their love handles or chubby belly but they get to take part in saving the Earth.”

California law forbids the use of human medical waste to power vehicles.


Really? They have a law on the books for this? California lawmakers sure are thorough.

James Taylor–Mr. Full of Himself

I like a few of Mr. Taylor’s songs–all of which were recorded 30 years ago. Right now he is peddling his latest album on television. It is his album and it’s infomercial that sparked this blog. It is an incredible example of self indulgence. The music is awful and the whole advertisement is a joke.

U2, my favorite band, had a time when they felt like messing around in the studio. After the creating a pile of songs, they wanted to release it to the public. They thought somebody might want to hear what they created.

They were concerned about it. It wasn’t classic U2. They wanted to release it but didn’t want it to scar their reputation so they did two things: they labeled it experimental and released it under a different name. That was wise. It bombed hard.

Larry, the pragmatic member of the band said, “There’s a thin line between interesting music and self-indulgence. We crossed it on the Passengers record.”

James Taylor also felt like messing around in the studio. The difference is that he invited in video cameras to record the event and had every intention of making it a commercial success. After he created the complete joke of a record he made an infomercial to sell it. The infomercial is on TV all the time.

I can’t believe the ego on this guy. It’s interesting that he was married to Carly Simon. Her song, “You’re so Vain” certainly fits.

Post Election Obama

I’ve been really impressed by Obama since the election. He hasn’t felt the need to rub salt in the wounds of his opponents. 

I’m watching a press conference where he has several of his cabinet officials being announced. In two of their speeches they made references to the last eight years. Then his bonehead VP got up and did the same thing. All that does is tick off those who lost the election.

Now I fully expect to abhor Obama at some point. Eventually, he will become like Bill and Hillary. He is, after all, further left than either of them. But for now, I’m not aggravated. I’m not condemning him. I’m letting him do his job without criticism. I feel civil towards him. I wish him well. I wish him success. I would rather see him successful and get reelected than fail miserably and get in a Republican.

I never felt that way towards Bill. I knew he was crooked and evil from day one. History has certainly proved that to be the case.  

I hope having the staff blaming everything on the last eight years is not Obama’s plan to stay clean. I’m sure they will be more offensive than Obama but I would like him to maintain a level of amenity. If he does, I will try to do the same.

Leno in Prime Time?

Today it was announced that Jay Leno will begin hosting a prime time talk show. I can only hope that he will clean up his act (literally). Ever since his mother died he has been absolutely filthy. His jokes remind me of a junior high locker room. We don’t ever need that sort of programming much less during prime time.  

Prime time television has been much worse the last few months. On the Travel channel I witnessed an ad for a vibrator. A few weeks later I saw an ad on AMC for male enhancement. That reminds me, I still need to write a letter for AMC.
