** The Dean Scream. Bloggers react:
- Commentary: Dave Winer
tells that the scream is part of the greater motivational strategy of Dean for America [via BuzzMachine
BuzzMachine has oodles and oodles on the subject so check it out here
- Audio: Speech remixes galore
[DeanGoesnuts.com via Wonkette]
- Pictures: Dean as a Wrestler
[Swamp City] and Dean as DeanWolf
[Yours Truly, Standard Deviance].
** Other Primary Humor: There were all kinds of John Kerry separated at birth pictures this week. Gothamist shows Kerry as Herman Munster
, Whatevs shows him as a Severed Head
, and Wonkette shows him as the Old Man in the Mountain
** Blogging in the News: The New York Times did a piece about Google Bombing, which, according to Night In the Big City, described the process in such detail that even "a deranged monkey could figure out how it is done"
. Let me look into the future. I see children on Live Journal Google bombing the phrase "best site ever" onto a blog entitled "Ashliegh's Kewl Planet".
** Anil Dash
has several quality links this week, including Dubya diverting questions by talking ribs
, crazy dog owners meeting other crazy dog owners on Dogster
, and losers who can't make friends on Friendster of Dogster, turning to Google's Orkut
** If you need motivation to keep that New Years Resolution to lose weight check out this weight loss diary
, via Kottke.org
. His results are amazing.
** Gizmodo features an I-pod knock-off
. My first instinct is to check out the price, but the damn website's in Japanese! Can someone translate the price for me? And then figure out the Dollar-Yen exchange rate?
** Swamp City has lovely pictures of Silvio Berlusconi
before-and-after his "vacation". It has been rumored that Mr. Berlusconi had plastic surgery
and thus had to remain cloistered until healed. Score 1 for the European Rumor Mill.
** VH1 has created yet another pop-culture series, entitled Best Week Ever
, which Uncle Grambo at Whatevs
describes as “the bangin' slut who stole your virginity in the back of a limo"
. The show even has a blog. Normally, I would say tsk tsk for a corporation foisting a blog upon the reading public, but this blog is actually funny, so everyone go ahead and click Blogroll It!
** And finally, the Gawker family gave birth to a bouncing baby girl today named Wonkette
. Standard Deviance is very excited about this addition to the blogging world. Finally a Gawker for all of us who don’t know shit about Conde Nast. And plus, she claims to have a poor grasp of grammar and spelling
, so hopefully her readers will be less likely to notice my many many errors.
