The Week That Was...

And Still Going On. Well, let's see. Another hypocritical Republican Congressman has been found out to be Gay. Another one of Bush's Senior Administration Officials (code named: C.R.O.N.I.E.S.) is leaving the sinking ship. Yeah, that will change American's minds of Bush, fire ANOTHER one of his inept 'yes' men. The GAO (that's General Accounting Office - for those who spend more time on instead of news sites) says that Iraq has met 3 of 18 benchmarks. Great job Bush for fixing that country! Only been five years, but his Halliburtons and such haven't even given clean drinking water to the Iraqis yet (read about the cholera breakout in Northern Iraq). Yet the Iraqis are responsible for the problems of the country. Now Bush says that the benchmarks that he imposed (which was recommended by the 'Iraq Study Group') were too high a mark to make. He is doing to the Iraqis which he has already done to the U.S.: Make them dumb. Then they don't see the oil slipping out of the country by the truckloads in the dead of night.

The Political Cartoons have been dead-on this week: here are some

New Virus


There is a dangerous virus being passed around electronically, orally, and by hand.
This virus is called Weary-Overload-Recreational-Killer (WORK).
If you Receive WORK from any of your colleagues, your boss, or anyone
else via any means DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private life completely.

If you should come into contact with WORK, put your jacket on and take
two good friends to the nearest grocery store. Purchase the antidote known as
Work-Isolating-Neutralizer-Extract (WINE) or Bothersome-Employer-Elimination-Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.

You should forward this warning to 5 friends. If you do not have 5 friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.

DISCLAIMER: I received this post in an e-mail from my mom and thought it was funny so I posted it to the blog. It is not meant to be aimed at anyone as we all suffer from WORK in some way or another. Thank you. We now return you to your regularly scheduled broadcast.

cheney '94 interview about iraq

i'm seriously surprised BTVJGJHo hasn't posted this yet. maybe it's a bit too mainstream for his politics, but i thought it was hilarious. now, their excuse is... when that interview was taken, we didn't have a 9/11. wtf does 9/11 have to do with IRAQ? it had to do with bin laden and afghanistan. that's the Grand Ol' Party for ya.

Do we really need a remake of this film

I like this film, but does it really need to be remade. Now, the second film was great. They should really remake it. But how do you remake a film that Mike Taylor says, "Has top notch special effects, great acting, and one hell of a plot." Good luck to the person who attempts it. "Sad story. Got a smoke?"

The Bristol Experience is Officially Open

This is just a quick note to let all the BTownBoyz know that The Bristol Experience is officially open for business. For those of you who don't know what it is, click on the the link and check it out. And if any of the BTBz who aren't already involved want to be a part of it, let me know and I'll add you.

For those of you who know what TBE is (ala Z, T, & JHo) I need you guys to start posting your best Bristol stories. I can think of dozens right now, but we need you guys to start it off. Where to start? How about T's bi-hourly trips to the bathhouse, or Phillis' Mingos at the Sportsman, late-night trips to the Ambulance, the snowiest race ever, or the endless walk to the Mad Greek. Whatever it is, share it on TBE. Also, if you have any pictures, that would be even better!

does anyone remember...

...phillip mcgilton? he was a year behind the BTBz at BHS. i don't recall much about him besides a vague idea of what he looked like, his name, and maybe he got in trouble a lot? anyways, i was watching speed today and caught the 11-august ARCA/REMAX race in nashville, and the #47 is driven by a phillip mcgilton. i thought it was a strange coincidence as i wouldn't consider either of those very common names, so i looked the guy up online. he states his hometown as being marion, IL, but the picture on the page... i think that is B-Town's own phillip mcgilton. i just think it's cool our little town has someone that might be racing stock cars. i e-mailed him to verify, i'll keep everyone updated as i KNOW you are on the edge of your seats.

It's a post from C!

As always, a random collection of thoughts. And by random, I mean mostly about Michael Vick, although I'm not sure why.

1. Michael Vick stole my dog last night and shocked it to death... just when I was about to forgive him for stealing my bike.

2. There was a kid on GRAW2 last night who couldn't have been older than 8 years old. He had something like 22 kills and 5 deaths. It reminded me of why I hate Halo so much. He also called out all the foreign language speaking people. It reminded me of why I hate foreign people so much.

3. Speaking of Halo, I saw one of the weapons is going to be a flamethrower. I am hoping once you set someone on fire, they scream in agony at a ridiculous volume... so loudly you have to pull out a pistol and shoot them quickly so you don't give away your position. Also I heard they had Michael Vick do the motion capture for Master Chief using the pistol to put down his dogs, er, kill enemies. Hey-oh! Somebody stop me!

4. I watched four of the Little League Regional finals over the weekend. Little League loses a lot of the appeal when there isn't a freakish 6 foot tall 200 pounder claiming to be 12 years old throwing 70 mph fastballs at a kid who only weighs 93 pounds. Little League reminds me of EA Sports games set on retard easy level. One team had six or seven homeruns in six innings Saturday. That was as bad as me beating Youngstown State 176-2 with OSU last night.

5. I heard someone say they wouldn't pass judgement on Vick until the trial, that they learned their lesson from the Duke case. I know I'm taking it slightly out of context, but there is one big difference between the cases. The dogs didn't make up a story about being forced to fight on Vick's property or tales of their friends being mutilated if they weren't good fighters. I've seen pictures of dogs playing poker, but I don't think they can talk or write. Maybe I shouldn't pass judgment though.

6. Save some of your liver for Myrtle next weekend.

Here it comes

So what do you do to deflect attention from the shithole which is Iraq? Start talking about bombing Iran. RRRRAAAAARRRR RRRRAAAAAAHHHH RRRRRR Bomb Iran (if you watch 'Little Bush' you know who I'm talking about) .

What is really messed up is not one of the major news organizations (cnn, msnbc, new york times, Washington Post) talks about this. Reuters at least mentions that the Bush Admin (take it for what you think is worth) says that Iran is smuggling more into Iraq. McClatchy News, formerly Knight-Ridder (not the Hasselhoff TV show) has always reported the skinny before anyone else did. Exposed Abu Grab Prison months before it's widely reported, exposed Walter Reed months before anyone else.

awesome GRAW2 accessory

myself and some of the BTBz play ghost recon advanced warfighter 2 (GRAW2) on the XBOX 360. now, the old nintendo systems had the gun for duck hunt, and the pad for the olympic games. if only microsoft could subsidize this accessory, so i could play GRAW2 and get my exercise at the same time. that would be bad ass.

Maybe he has had it all along...

It was revealed that President Bush had Lyme Disease last Summer. I think he has had it a lot longer than that. He's had the disease since taking office back in 2001. Here are symptoms of prolonged exposure to the disease.

Nerve conduction defects (weakness/paralysis of limbs, loss of reflexes, tingling sensations of the extremities - peripheral neuropathy), severe headaches, stiff neck, meningitis, cranial nerve involvement (e.g. change in smell/taste; difficulty chewing, swallowing, or speaking; hoarseness or vocal cord problems; facial paralysis - Bell's palsy; dizziness/fainting; drooping shoulders; inability to turn head; light or sound sensitivity; change in hearing; deviation of eyeball [wandering or lazy eye], drooping eyelid), stroke, abnormal brain waves or seizures, sleep disorders, cognitive changes (memory problems, difficulty in word finding, confusion, decreased concentration, problems with numbers) and, behavioral changes (depression, personality changes).

Other psychiatric manifestations that have been reported in the scientific literature include: panic attacks; disorientation; hallucinations; extreme agitation; impulsive violence, manic, or obsessive behavior; paranoia; schiziphrenic-like states, dementia, and eating disorders. Several patients have committed suicide.

Vision changes, including blindness, retinal damage, optic atrophy, red eye, conjunctivitis, "spots" before eyes, inflammation of various parts of the eye, pain, double vision.

First Google then the world

Did anyone notice this. It also means that those who type it in and press the "I'm feeling lucky" button will go straight to the blog. I thought it was kinda cool to have first place. I tried using different variations to come up with these stats, such as Btown Boyz, btownboyz, B-Town Boyz, etc. Here are some others.

Google #1(every variation came up first)
Yahoo #2(used Btown Boyz)
Ask #2 and lycos #3(had to use btownboyz to work)
msn doesn't like us at all, but how do you expain this.(Btown Boyz and B-Town Boyz came up with the former link. Btownboyz came up with a link for viral video which had our blog listed for something with Guitar Hero 2. I'm guessing J Ho's post with me and him caused this)

And yes it was a slow day at work today.

captain morgan at bristol?

i was going through old bristol pix, ones i got from BTVJGJHo, form the 2007 spring race. i have an OCD thing where i have to rename pix, that way i can find a pic of dale jr easier than knowing it was DCIM0478 or some such shite. while doing so, i found this rather useless picture (i don't see anything exciting in it) except for this guy, doing an extreme captain morgan pose for the #5 car. what do you think?

maybe we can do a fancy captain morgan's pose at bristol ourselves? submit it, make some benjamins? everyone start thinking.

a brit and his fellow brit friend came to america to intentionally break some of The USofA's more absurd laws that are still on the books. you can see a photojournal of some of them here. pretty funny.
