Put Art Back In MI State Budget →
Detroit Free Press Op/Ed, Feb 25 2009 Good article about the immediate results of Granholm’s decision to reduce Michigan’s arts budget from $7.9 million to $1 million. If we can’t get her to budge, this could be bloody.
Just introduced a ridiculous video clip by saying, “comedian, Rush Limbaugh…” I hope Limbaugh watches this show & caught that jab right between the eyes.
We Have Decided Not To Die by Daniel Askill This is an award-winning short film featuring “a modern day allegorical triptych” composed of three people performing three rituals entitled: Birth, Between and Rebirth.

Didn’t Wrigley’s (the chewing gum) just release a big public statement the other day about dropping their Chris Brown commercial effective immedaiately? Why did they just play it on my local CW affiliate? Being sick sucks. I could use a vacation from my bedroom.
I can't stand it
everybodycares: apsies: absurdlakefront: Senate Democrats say they don’t have enough votes to pass the stimulus. It’s not the stimulus part of this that upsets me, but the fucking idiotic notion that you need 60 votes to pass anything in the Senate. The Democrats currently hold 58 seats, and only 50 seats are needed to pass a bill. They’re letting Republicans force a 60-vote threshold,...
