The swag is truly phenomenal

SPORTS SECTION (and entertainment)
I know this blog is starting to sound like a broken record of man-fandom (nh) but Agent Zero did it AGAIN last night. I know I blogged about Arenas when he used Lebron, when he dropped 60 Kobe, and when he lit up Nash and Phoenix for 50 more, but he found another way to amaze last night. With no time on the clock and the game tied, Gil casually pulled up on another 30 footer, drilling the shot, turning his back to “get his swag on” before the ball even went through the rim, and avenging the Wizards only recent loss to the bucks....phenomenal is right

So this is ANOTHER 30-foot DAGGER from Zero our Hero. Like Gil said he is “8 for 8" on those shots this year, and he doesnt know why we are surprised anymore. Arenas is now the most exciting player I can ever remember in this town - hands down.

Anyone, have an Arenas Express Card, I need a hookup to his birthday bash tomororw, which has its own WEBSITE Arenas Express Dot Com.

Finally the national media is starting to take notice of Gil and the Wiz as they are now the #1 team in the East according to the ESPN power rankings, and still in 1st place in the division
I have been calling bullshit on bottled water for years. I’m down with the convenience of the plastic bottles, but you cant convince me that the stuff actually tastes better and therefore needs to be bought from Pepsi and Coke. Instead just buy one bottle of water and refill that bitch with tap water. Anyways, Lewis Black says it all much better than I could

A couple years ago, Penn and Teller actually did the work in calling people on this bullshit, as they filled expensive glasses with hose water, and passed it off as delicious pure spring water. Catch it here.
Politics/Entertainment (all rolled into one)

Here are some more full-length documentaries that you can watch online

Jesus Camp
What: Documentary on a youth pastor who trains a flock of young christian warriors as they prepare to become good evangelical Christian soldiers. No narrator or side commentary needed, this is some scary stuff. Actually a great comedy, horror movie, and drama rolled into one
Highlight: Hard to pick a highlight when there are sooo many bat-shit-crazy-scenes that your held may start spinning. A few of the best were:
- The Kids literally being told that Harry Potter should be put to death under Biblical law “Had it been in the old testament, Harry Potter would have been put to don’t make heroes out of warlocks”
- Praying to G.W.Bush, yes ....President ....Bush -
- Ted Haggard making another guest appearance to bash gays (yes the same Haggard that was caught buying crystal meth from his gay prostitute

The BBC’s Weird Weekends with Louis Theroux Documentary -
Black Supremacists

What: Some crazy British MoFo comes to New York and decides to meet with black-power leaders on the week after Diallo was murdered by a bunch of NYC cops
Highlight: Going into the inner sanctum of Black Israelites. Its like some wacked out Wu Tang shaolin fantasy gone terribly wrong and played out in real life.

Baghdad ER
What: I actually saw this doc. on HBO. It simply focuses on one emergency room in Bagdhad as the injured come rolling in and out.
Highlights: There are no fucking highlights. This is just awful heartbreaking stuff.
Whit the news that Bush may be pushing for an additional surge, these types of documentaries must be watched by everyone. When the General’s don’t want a surge, the public doesnt want a surge, the troops don’t want a surge, and the Iraq study group called for a withdrawal, why would we want more and more of this Baghdad ER footage.

Once again, Olberman spits hot fire about this so-called “surge”

Why We Fight
What: Brilliant documentary exploring our military industrial complex and how it fuels our views on when, why, and how we fight wars. Maybe this explains the surge.
Current TV
When nothing good is recorded on my DVR (which is rare) I find myself watching Current TV more than anything else. The channel is basically a bunch of 5 to 10 minute documentaries, and a few other pods that rotate on a random playlist. It sounds pretty bad, but for my short attention span self it is great stuff.

In the past week or so I have watched pods on the World Series of Beer Pong, China, a Crab Shack in Baltimore, Saddam, a cartoon invloving Kim Jong Il and Jackass, a Somalian gun bazaar, and Dubai (by the way, Dubai is fucking nuts)

I miss American sports... f*ck rugby and cricket.

Angry Lewis Black is the best ! I love when he starts stabbing his pointer finger in the air.
