Flowers and old legionaires

Once again Agent Steinz, from the Washington Post’s D.C. Sports Bog, promotes and defends the Redonkulous Linker, this time defending our hero from the evil thieves at Mike and Mike In the Morning.
Speaking of brilliant sports bloggers, Unsilent Majority eloquently explained in Deadspin early last week why Gilbert’s announced decision to opt out of his contract was just a smart business decision and does NOT mean he is leaving:
Simply put, there's no reason for to go anywhere else. This is his home, it's where he's raising a family, it's where he's loved, and it's where he reigns supreme as The Black President (which makes him more powerful than Eleanor Holmes Norton) . And if does leave he knows that we'll find him. Remember, we're a bunch of crazy fuckers [with a cite to the crazy fuckers at Wizznutz]

Later in the week Gilbert personally and completely confirmed the thoughts of UM on his own blizzog.
Anyway, why would Arenas have signed a personalized jersey to the “R. Linker”if he planned on leaving us.
DC’s best pound-for-pound blogger, the DCeiver, has nailed my feelings exactly on the latest incarnation of total-whackjob, Perry Farrell. Yes Jane’s Addiction was great, but as I rediscovered in a recent Ron and Fez podcast, the man is a complete lunatic, Satellite Party will undoubtedly suck and DCeiver rightly explains why. Money quote:
Take this Satellite Party shit. To hear Farrell talk about it, it's like he's unlocked the Arc of the Covenant of something. He talks about his shitty band in these terms that you'd have to have ingested two huge Aaron Sorkin-loads of shrooms to even halfway believe. He tells interviewers that on UltraPayloaded, he's more or less created the music that will instantaneously unlock the mysteries of the celestial spheres and douse the listener in fluffy bunny rabbits and orgasm-inducing ambrosia and that the experience will be tantamount to seeing the face of God. In the first place, Fergie is a collaborator on this record, so you know this is just an impossible claim from jump, but sadly, his prize gimmick is some moldy old field recording of Jim Morrisson, saying only fuckadoo knows what. Christ, I'm surprised there isn't a whole room full of tapes with Morrisson blabbing on them--if they don't exist it's only because someone who loved him burned them.

DCeiver is harsh on the 90's icon, but the guy has got a point.
A few years ago, the geniuses at the Pentagon were actually planning a “Gay Bomb” to turn our enemies, well, gay. Dont believe me?...

Alex Blagg at Best Week Ever did some fine investigative reporting and found the schematics for the top secret gay bomb.
Interesting remix video of T-Pain's .Let me buy you a draaaank
After last weeks in depth discussion on the rise of Douchiness in our popular culture, I stumbled across this Manfred Man song playing somewhere. (check the video ) Hearing Mr. Man repeat the chorus about 20 times in the song (including 3 straight times to begin the joint, I became convinced that the subject of this ditty was proclaimed to be “wrapped up like douche.” After a minimal amount of digging around on the intertubes, my thoughts were confirmed by the Wikipedias.
Under the subheading "Deuce versus douche", I learned that the song was actually written by Bruce Springsteen and referenced to a duece, a '32 Ford Deuce Coupe. The song was then covered by Man and changed to 'revved up like a douche', "which is a feminine hygienic procedure." The Boss even attributed the popularity of the cover version to the repeated use of the douche wrapping. Nice.
Thanks to Fimoculous, here is the entire new Michael Moore, doc Sicko.
And don’t worry about watching it online, I remember Moore saying he doesnt mind the file sharing on teh internets. Since he doesn't mind, here is the full Farenheit 9/11
