Nice production. The question is, "Can we afford the bugger?"

We are going to allow this to happen to young female U.S. citizens?

Jimmy and me

Take it from an old video guy. The guy on the right is
a deeply talented videographer/producer/director/editor/voice.
His name is Jimmy Seigel and here is a current example of his work.

Money

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkRIbUT6u7Q&feature=player_embedded

And from my brother-in-law from AZ yet another story.

A blond teenage girl, wanting to earn some extra money for the summer, decided to hire herself out as a 'handy-woman' and started
canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood. She went to the
front door of the first house, and asked the owner if he had any
odd jobs for her to do.

'Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch,' he
said. 'How much will you charge me?'

Delighted, the girl quickly responded, 'How about $50?'

The man agreed and told her that the paint brushes and everything
she would need was in the garage. The man's wife, hearing the
conversation said to her husband, 'Does she realize that our porch
goes ALL the way around the house?'

He responded, 'That's a bit cynical, isn't it?'

The wife replied, 'You're right. I guess I'm starting to believe all
those dumb blond jokes '.

Later that day, the blond came to the door to collect her money.

'You're finished already?' the startled husband asked.

'Yes,' the blond replied, 'and I even had paint left over, so I
gave it two coats.'

Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50.00 and
handed it to her along with a ten dollar tip.

'And by the way,' the blond added, 'it's not a Porch, it's a Lexus.

Crooks vs. Jerks

This isn't a political piece today but its fascinating none the less. Its a short, insightful commentary on the legal war between Viacom vs. You Tube.

And the emmy goes to.....

I'm not certain this is a Jimmy Siegal produced commercial but it has the look. In any event its the best of the early crop.

No! You can't see my papers. Not in my America.

Talkin' wacky.


And talking off balance right here in our own empire state may I refer you to the first paragraph from a Middletown Times Herald story

MIDDLETOWN — Under a Gov. Carl Paladino, political hacks would be swept from the state payroll, Medicaid spending would be slashed by 40 percent and state programs or even entire agencies that are deemed unnecessary would disappear.
Underused prisons would be turned into work camps for welfare recipients.

Fellow blogger Adama Brown raised my consciousness by reporting on the reporting on The Albany Project blog. Just read the thing one more time and see if your skin crawls too.

By the way there were 234 views on our tiny site last week. Thank you. Just for comparative purposes Jeff Graham had about 6,500 on his.

a couple of problems with pitch and tempo but the thought is pure





From my AZ brother-in-law

Number 10
Life is sexually transmitted.
Number 9
Good health is merely the slowest possible
rate at which one can die.
Number 8
Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny.
If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich ..
Number 7
Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day,
teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for
weeks.
Number 6
Some people are like a Slinky ...
not really good for anything, but you
still can't help but smile when
you shove them down the stairs.
Number 5
Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday,
lying in hospitals, dying of nothing.
Number 4
All of us could take a lesson from the weather.
It pays no attention to criticism.
Number 3
Why does a slight tax increase cost you $200.00,
and a substantial tax cut saves you $30.00?
Number 2
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird.
Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

And The Number 1 Thought ........ Life is like a jar of Jalapeno
peppers; what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.

Just like some of us old guys Pete Seeger is 'seasoned' but still at it. Actually he is older than dirt but still doing new material.

From the NYT

I'm sorry this bothers me.

Kathleen M. Rice, the Nassau County district attorney and a Democratic candidate for attorney general, did not cast her first ballot in an election until 2002, nearly two decades after she first registered to vote, according to election records.

Ms. Rice, 45, registered as a Republican in 1984 before enrolling as a Democrat in 2005 to run for district attorney. Yet she did not vote in a single election for 18 years, her campaign conceded on Saturday. It was a lapse she described as a youthful failing and one she regretted.
