Eagle Vomit

Learned tonight that many Tibetans consider eagle vomit a great remedy for poisoning, and had to wonder what one does after accidentally swallowing Himalayan Hemlock… run around trying to trap an eagle and coax it to regurgitate in a cup?

Would not have thought it possible, but there you go: Captain Beefheart’s “Golden Birdies” impeccably rendered in glorious … MIDI!

Who benefits from a war with Iraq?

Pure lust: This dude had a BRAND NEW ’66 Bonneville for sale – as in, brand new – engine’s never even been kicked over. What would you do with a bike like that? Could you NOT turn it over? It seems perverse not to ride it, but impossible to not give it a kick.

Excellent tool for comparing blogging software side-by-side – review up to five weblog tools simultaneously.

In light of recent events, what an unfortunate name for a refreshing drink.

Joni Mitchell has some scathing words – says she’s
‘ashamed’ to be in the music business. I know what she means about her 3-year-old granddaughter grabbing her crotch while dancing – I’ve seen it too, and don’t disagree with her for blaming MTV.

“The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There’s also a negative side.”
– Hunter S. Thompson

Once again, thanks to Phil Franks for being my surrogate eyeballs.

  1. Is the subscriber stuff with livejournal supposed to pick up the whole post? It got as far as “This dude has a BRAND NEW” and then inserted an ellipses and ended. That sort of thing would make sense for thematic posts, but it makes for weirdness with random snippets posts like this one. :) Also, it doesn’t pick up on line breaks, which makes the experience of unrelated links posts even more surreal.

  2. It’s a snippet – one defines in one’s blog software how many words or characters should be included in the RDF feed. The idea is that you’re supposed to follow the link after reading the snippet, if interested.
