Designer Toy

I don't know if many of you have heard about this. There have been articles in the LA Times and other prominent newspapers and magazines. But this is about the burgeoning niche of collectible designer toys. Artists design these little toys that have no real connection to licensing or franchises (a la "zipline batman action figures" etc), but are purely created for esthetic value. People are snapping them up and many go for insane amounts on secondary markets like ebay. Anyway, the point of all of this is that I found one of them that looks like me dressed up as a cactus. (It's even got the tooth in the front!!) Yeah, I don't get it either. But I must say, I do make a pretty damn fine cactus, don't you think?

Naps, again

Basically because of a lack of material or a lack of motivation to post this week, I don't know which, but that is why you get more napping shots today. But then again, can the world ever have enough napping photos? Perhaps I am on to something here. The world would probably be a much more peaceful place if we all took the time to nap more frequently. We'd be healthier, less stressed, less cranky to one another...following that to it's logical conclusion it would mean less wars. I bet Dick Cheney hasn't napped in ages! More naps might mean less shooting your friends in the face. (Wow, that turned political quickly, for some reason...Dad's passion for the activism clearly must be rubbing off on me.)

Scarf Shenanigans

I guess Dad thought it was going to be cold outside for our walk last night so he put his scarf on me. Does anyone else think this is funny??

I'm innocent, I tell you!!

Click on the above picture to see what just ran in the paper today! You know how USA Today loves its easy to read news graphics...I don't even know Abramoff! This is undoubtedly a swift-boat scheme again. I was only in Washington to meet with Russ Feingold. Honestly! I was never on the White House lawn (ok, maybe just for a minute...)

Frida Gump

All this political commentary has left me spent! Who's blog is this anyway, James Carville??...Now for another of my famous Frida movie posters. Hollywood is all about remakes nowadays, so why not me in the starring roles of such classics? Imagine it now..."Life is like a box of rawhides" and "Run, Frida, run!" Not bad, eh?

Senate Hearings

Now dogs have excelling know how keenly developed our senses are. Which must be why I was asked to be a part of the Senate hearings on the President's "Warantless Wiretapping." Oh wait, I forgot to use the official name of the program: "Project Loss of Liberty Through Enduring Freedom Via American Non-Terrorist Surveillance Program.” Wait, that’s not it either. I can’t remember it exactly. But it has something to do with listening to phone conversations. Alberto Gonzales testified and said that many other presidents did this, like Washington, Roosevelt, Lincoln. I think he forgot to mention one that was really good at it: Nixon. He really knew how to use presidential authority. Anyway, when it was my time to testify, Senator Specter (yay for PA! He’s MY senator…) asked if I had any recommendations for the committee. I said that polls show that Americans think that the President broke the law and they don’t want him on their phone any more than the telemarketers we have been trying to block with the national do not call list. But if he really wants to drum up support for this illegal program and get Americans to rally behind it, he should print up a boatload of those little ribbon magnets to put on our SUVs that say “Support the Wiretapping!” That ought to work. People eat that up! (And as a bonus, since we’re headed that way, he could implant a chip in them which could monitor our every trip to the store. Bonus!)

Me and the boys

So I was approached by some network executives to be one of the judges for Bravo's "America's Next Top Male Model 2" show. My days are usually free while my dads are at work so I figured what the heck. Here's the promo poster they plan to run. I tell ya, it's gonna be a rough decision who to kick off each week. So many choices. But I'm up to the task! And I promise to be completely objective in my decisions and not let emotions take over. Take that, Tyra Banks!
