Your nemesis is about to rip into a shit-hot synthesizer solo!

I am thinking: Yes!

Speaking of which, is there any sensible reason people make that crappy purple punch stuff with the vodka in it? Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to just teach people to suck it up like the Russians do?

I have no idea what this post means. Is there a link to something somewhere?

Biden is more liberal than Lloyd Bentsen.

Samuel L. Jackson plays "dreadful adaptions of art that the adaptors don't really understand"? Because I thought that was more Frank Miller's bag.

Samuel L. Jackson is starring in an upcoming Sun Ra biopic? That sounds great!

There's a reason everyone hates hipsters who delight in the non-communication of the obscure reference, Ben.

A big-budget adaption of Fagin the Jew starring Samuel L. and Scarlett, though, that would be aces.

SPOILER ALERT

At the end of "The Spirit" Joe Biden is badly burned and turns into a villain, allowing Sun Ra to bend him to his will.

Yeah, but I assumed that Fatman's initial perplexity was fuel for Michael's accusations, and I wanted to emphasize that it had been dissolved.

Anyway, of course you would get it, you hipster reedsman, you.

A better Sun Ra retrospective is coming to the ICA in Philly next summer. I can't decide whether I should try to review the show or try to beg them to let my band play the opening party.

I still don't get it. What does Sun Ra have to do with The Spirit?

And yet, I don't care. As with all these movies that are at first of interest only to people who read the comic books, and later on become universally hated by those people for not being similar enough to the original, I will wait for the reviews.

The joke, such as it is, is that SLJ sorta looks like Sun Ra there. Either that, or all black men in silly yet grandiose costumes look like Sun Ra to me.

Gathered here on this dais are eight of the greatest public servants it is my privilege to know. Joe Biden will play a major role in my administration, perhaps in an office rhyming with Schmecretary of Schmate. Tim Kaine, likewise, will play a major role in my administration. Kathleen Sebelius will play a major role in my administration, perhaps as Schmattorney Schmeneral. Evan Bayh will stay where he is, because we need that Senate seat. And Chuck Hagel will continue to be the only non-douchebag Republican in Congress, and as such, will always have my ear. But what I'm most looking forward to is having Hillary R. Clinton as our nation's first female vice-president. I CAN HAZ APLAUS? KTHXBYE

NBC says not Bayh or Kaine, according to "sources". Also that the text message won't go out until tomorrow morning. I wonder how reliable these sources are.

Officials said the Obama campaign had taken the trouble to print material bearing the names of several potential ticketmates -- thereby minimizing the significance of a report that a printing company in Kansas was churning out signs bearing Bayh's name.
