Bush's Watch

On his recent trip to Albania, President Bush did NOT get his watch stolen. He almost did...but he's not as dumb as he looks. He caught on to the pickpocket and without breaking his smile discreetly took the watch off and continued glad handing.

It was smooth, man!

The attempted thieves (because it does seem to be a tandem, if you watch it again) were bold for going for the President's watch, but Bush is wily. He's like a stage magician, that Bush. See the watch?

And now you don't. It's seems like on this one, Tony Snow is off the hook.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

First, the good.

Machine Head's Imperium, performed live in 2004. One of the best metal songs of the 21st Century, if you ask me. What do you think?

Then the bad.

3 Inches of Blood, Deadly Sinners. (No embed, just a link.) You're not sure whether to take these guys seriously, but I guess that's part of the joke.

Actual lyrics:
Flash of iron, leather, spikes, and swords!
Mighty warriors with metal on their side!
Enemies of metal, your death is our reward!
Triumphant victory when you bring the steel to life
Enemies of metal? Okay, whatever.

And finaly, the ugly.

Strapping Young Lad, Love? Yeah, it's not pretty, that's for sure, but it kicks some major ass. You might want to turn the volume down, though. Don't want to damage your hearing now, do we?
