The genius scientists over at Buddyhead have graced the world with an invaluable tool.  Dr. Wilhelm Von Schusterbauer has unleashed the Magnificent Pitchfork Tranlation Apparatus upon the world and now we can all get right to the point of those wordy reviews over there.  Unfortunately, it won’t stop the masses from swallowing a bunch of indie bullshit.

Apparently the Buddyhead gossip page is also coming back, which is awesome because I can’t wait to call Fred Durst up and ask him what happened to his mind.

When you’re as questionable a celebrity as Kid Rock is, sometimes you have to prove it to the public that u keeps it real. This can sometime mean beating the shit out of some dude in a Waffle House-esque establishment. Here is the lame security cam footage of Kid Rock damn near jumping out his white track suit to smash a fool with his crew.

Unsurprisingly, this isn’t happening.

Anheuser-Busch’s takeover by Belgian beer giant InBev prompts important questions about the fate of Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. Thus far InBev has pledged to sell off “noncore assets” which they have not yet named.

However, things are looking up for the theme park, which constitutes the majority of BG home James City County’s annual $6 million meal revenue and employs over 500 people. The park saw a 12.5% rise in visitors in 2007, the largest increase in the country!

You may still live to ride Apollo’s Chariot another day…

July 4, what a crappy holiday. Summer holidays gross me out. Independence Day reminds me of a good movie, but also sweat, mosquito bites, crowds and now security checkpoints. Let’s just fast-forward to Labor Day.

Top 3 favorite holidays (without explanation):
1) Halloween
2) Passover
3) New Year’s

All of the holidays you get days off for are the worst. Have you ever thought about that?
Feel free to comment with your own Top 3. Or maybe Bottom 3.

Aside from unfortunate theme songs and awful mascots EURO 2008 has incredibly lived up to the hype of a major tournament. Tonight we bid farewell to a Turkey team that was without doubt the most entertaining and inspiring of the last three weeks. Turkey seemed to be fueled on heart and pride alone, as they fought their way into the semi-final after three consecutive late wins against the Swiss, Czechs and the Croatians, but unfortunately couldn’t make it happen tonight in Basel.

No: Possible Early Release for Susan Atkins by mnjones

No, I don’t see why Susan Atkins should EVER get out of her sentence early. Compassionate release? It’s not like the Tate murders were “compassionate.”

This Just In… by quanderlust

Visited by the latest vision of heaven: a man clinging to a cable suspended within the world’s largest and longest elevator shaft. Or, imagine dangling from a rope fixed to the ceiling of a massive abandoned planetarium; no panic or alarm, but only wondering, “perhaps this is only the garage or foyer of paradise.” The plumbing in heaven must be like a vast network of industrial air ducts, a psychological death star whose shell resembles a vacant southern factory building; hushed and hallowed, overgrown with rust and ivy. I am a humble man – I would be content to dwell in the laundry room of heaven, or to merely crouch in the alley with a 30 pack of Stroh’s.

River Shoes by quanderlust

They found me floating in the Potomac today. I was still wearing my shoes but my face was swollen beyond recognition. It will take an entire week for my lips to deflate enough where I can tell them that I did it on purpose. People say there is no viable waterfront in D.C. They say that Old Town, Alexandria has all the action. Well I set out to be the waterfront, and I think I succeeded. I wanted to show those narrow-minded conservative elitists in Old Town that I didn’t need their water; that in fact their water was my water first. They float their boats on the afterbirth of my great ideas. Did I tell you that my father was a river man on the Potomac? Did I mention that he was forced to live in a tree on the banks of the river by the old power station north of Old Town? He lived on squirrels and diseased fish with only the beer that I occasionally brought in five gallon plastic buckets to slake his thirst. He eventually starting telling lies to cyclists about how he came to live by that river. I hated him, and I hated D.C. and I hated Virginia, so I decided to get in the water and teach everybody a lesson. They said it was the actress who played Wonder Woman that found me and notified some nearby fisherman, but that’s a lie. She was in on the plot, but got cold feet at the last minute. Fine. Her cold feet can never fill my dirty river shoes, and the next time I hit the water you won’t ever see or hear from me again.
