Classical Music

Now, my idea of classical music usually involves Olivia Newton-John, but others apparently have different ideas.  A post by kishnevi at Horseman, Pass By! has a very funny link that prompts this discussion.  I asked Machinist for his recommendation for an embedded classical music video and got this:



Discuss.

Metal & Magic

First off, let me state that I don't get a dime for this (or any other compensation) and never will.  When I make a recommendation it's because it's something I found worth recommending.  This is an absolute must-check-out!  There are books and lots of original artwork.

Two special recommendations for purchase... the first is here.  You can also check out this at Amazon.  Get a copy of Digger or Nurk for yourself and one as a gift for someone else who enjoys fantasy stories and art.  When S.Weasel gets around to putting a book together (hint, hint) they will go well together.

This is also going in the sidebar... it's that good.  One for Uncle Badger and S.Weasel below the fold.

Was I This Stupid As A Kid?



Yeah... I probably was. 

(It's not 'splosions Harper... but I hope it gets you through the weekend!  )

The MSM On John McCain's Campaign

Here we go again.  Another day, another negative McCain story.

Republican John McCain has been slow to take advantage of his potential head start for the presidency against Democrats, who are better organized and generate more excitement among voters.

Hmmm..... anything in there about the divisive race among the Democrats?  Not really... they seem to assume Obama is the presumptive nominee despite neither candidate being able to clinch before the convention unless the other drops out.

The private frustration is starting to bleed into public fretting, especially as Democrat Barack Obama this week called together supporters in swing states for meetings about November. In Iowa, Colorado, Florida and elsewhere, aides and volunteers planned to meet soon about the fall's election — even before Obama has secured the necessary delegates to be the nominee.

Obama kept his storefront office in downtown Columbus after his March 4 primary loss and invited backers there Thursday "to discuss our plans for the coming weeks as we make the transition from the primary season to the general election campaign," according to the public invitation.

Justice Denied

The guy commits murder and confesses.  Sentenced to death, he gets a delay while the Supreme Court decides whether lethal injection constitutes cruel and unusual punishment.  After the Supremes decide that things don't have to be guaranteed perfect (paraphrasing there) for them to be Constitutional, an execution date is scheduled.  Two hours and thirty minutes before he's to be executed, a phone call comes in... is it the Governor?

Links Around The Moronosphere

Some very good offerings today... from photoshops (S.Weasel!!), to e-card fun at The Pillage Idiot, to another example from the "Religion of Perpetual Offense" at The Drawn Cutlass, and more.

Make sure to leave a comment at doubleplusundead's to let him know how appreciated his hard work is.  If he stops, then I'll have to do it... and that would suck.

That's Gonna Leave A Mark

John McCain's chief media consultant has left the campaign because he doesn't want to work against Obama.

Mark McKinnon, the chief media consultant to McCain, wrote in a campaign memo last year that if Obama won the Democratic nomination, he would not actively campaign against him. With the results of Tuesday night's primaries in Kentucky and Oregon, Obama claimed he had a majority of convention delegates.

Even though Obama hasn't been named the nominee, McKinnon decided to leave now anyway... although he promises he's still going to vote for McCain.

He said last year that he didn't want to work against an Obama candidacy. Electing Obama "would send a great message to the country and the world," McKinnon said at the time, although he added that he intended to vote for McCain.

Iranian Teen Permitted To Remain In UK

Remember the Iranian teen who went to the UK for school and was almost deported after requesting asylum?  I first wrote about it here, then had a follow-up post here.  He feared being returned to Iran because while he was at school his boyfriend was found out and executed for being a homosexual.  The young man's appeal has been granted and he will now be able to avoid his own execution by the Iranian government.

The U.K. Border Agency said on Tuesday that Mehdi Kazemi will be allowed to remain in Britain.  Kazemi came to England to study English in 2005. He discovered his boyfriend had been charged in Iran with sodomy and hanged.

This should have been a no-brainer, but the end-result is good.
