Daily Linkage

Happy Wednesday folks. Enjoying that mysterious mixture of sleet, snow, and freezing rain falling down from the heavens? Remember: fishtailing builds character. Rickey wishes everyone a well adjusted and chemically balanced Happy Valentine’s Day. Disreguard the massively geeky picture on the left--in case you haven't already figured it out, Rickey is essentially a 13 year old trapped in a 27 year old's body. Anyhow, here are a few items of interest to tide you over while hiding in the bushes and peering into your loved ones’ houses with high powered binoculars.

Check out this picture from the Westminster Dog Show:

Once you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you. Why Samoyeds never win these things bothers Rickey immensely. Is there such a thing as dog racism? Also, watching last night’s dog show, Rickey was amused when one of the announcers used the statement, "she's a wonderful bitch" as a compliment. Rickey is now looking forward to utilizing this phrase whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Good god, a Hardy Boys movie starring Ben Stiller and Tom Cruise? http://www.aintitcool.com/node/31572 And what will the Scientology spin be? Will Tom Cruise and the spirit/essence/whatever of L Ron Hubbard team up with bozo cop Ben Stiller to take on Aleister Crowley and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn? Rickey is so eager to see this it’s not even funny.

McSweeney’s has entertained us all with some funny articles, but this is far and away the funniest. There’s humor and then there’s THIS: http://www.mcsweeneys.net/2006/1/26sacks.html

Kudos to Tiki Barber for joining the Today show on NBC, thereby snatching away the coveted title of “Least Threatening African American on Television” from Al Roker. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/14/sports/football/13barber.html?_r=1&ref=sports&oref=slogin Rickey's not a racist, he swears--he's just irritated by Tiki's perpetual blandness.

Courtesy of one of Rickey’s miscreant friends, here’s your daily dose of Jack Bauer goodness: http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1741864 Note: since the internet filters here at the office block this link, it’s safe to assume that this link should be considered NSFW.

In need of some musical accompaniment to liven up the work day? Are you in between the ages of 20 and 30? Do you enjoy indie rock? Well then sparky, check out this fantastic resource: http://woxy.lala.com/

Ever wanted to buy boar, venison, or rabbit from local sellers with ridiculous names like “Rivendell Farm” or “Elysian Fields Farm”? Well then by all means proceed here: http://www.eatwild.com/products/newyork.html Sure, these people are all compost loving nature freaks, but they sell some damn fine sheep’s milk cheese… uh, whatever the hell that is.

That McSweeney's piece is some stupendously funny shit. Wow.

I may have no choice but to follow your lead and link it (plus, I'm not in the mood to write anything today).

Mike: indeed--McSweeney's has some terrific gems lodged in their archives.

Is that poodle "Rhapsody in White" from "Best in Show"?

I think its name is Angel Bastardo or something like that
