Sexy Advertisements On Kindle – Let’s Hope So

The Kindle is now less expensive. By $25 to be exact. IF you are willing to allow advertisements to be downloaded as screensavers.

Now, I’m up for that. Especially if Hooters is advertising. Oh, and Victoria’s Secret. And any vacation resort that uses gals in bikinis in their ads. Thing is I already have one, so I’m thinking they should offer discounts on e books if you allow the ads to download to your Kindle. Sort of like the Vampire Girl Kindle skin up above but being able to change it out all the time.

BTW, I’m very much into the Kindle these days. I got one for my birthday last August and have become the voracious reader I once was years ago. So much so that loving wife has limited me to one book at week. It’s agony I tell ya.


File Under Fiction

“The Gluconate Guy, He’s Out Of A Job”

I just finished reading The Informant and I have to say it is one of the best books I have read in years. This true story reads like some of the best spy novels every written, making the boring world of price-fixing and corporate fraud investigations look like a Jame Bond novel sans all the killing, martini, and hot women of course.

Okay, so it’s not Bond, but you get the point.

I can’t recommend it enough.

That said, the trailer for the upcoming movie by the same name looks just as good. It does appear to play the story more for laughs than the book, but if you’re just reading the book and have Matt Damon in mind as the main character Mark Whitacre, you can really see how it had to work out that way. The fact is the whole story is one big laugh. Incredible, unbelievable, improbable and yet so true to how real federal investigations work, and sometimes work out despite the best of intentions, that it is much like reading a good war novel when the author actually talked to someone in the military before he wrote it.

Here’s hoping the movie lives up to the book.

Seven (In White)


1. I Can’t Believe I’m Sitting Next To A Republican: A Survival Guide for Conservatives Marooned Among the Angry, Smug, and Terminally Self-Righteous . It’s designed for conservatives who live in blue areas, but I think it will work wonders for living with a blue son and several blue friends.

2. Obama to American business – Drop Dead. There’s an old saying, “Never ascribe to evil intent that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.” Well, I’m beginning to believe no one can be this stupid so am I being paranoid when I think there’s some evil intent here?

3. David Letterman jokes about statutory rape . . . or just rape . . . who the hell can tell with this moron. And of course the target is a conservative. Well, the daughter of a conservative. More specifically the 14 year old daughter of Sarah Palin. Which is okay to liberals because well, Palin is a conservative and anything goes when it’s about conservatives. Here’s the video.

I really despise liberal men.  At least the ones in power –  politicians and media types.  They hate women.  And are the most misogynist group in the world. And liberal women? At best they just ignore them and at worse they enable them because only liberal women are worthy of respect.

Letterman is despicable. He stopped being funny a decade ago and he is still bitter over not getting The Tonight Show. Thank God he didn’t.

As an aside, the left is SCARED TO DEATH of Sarah Palin. You can smell it on them. They know that without McCain tied around her neck she will be a formidable force in 2012. And I love it.

4. Speaking of Sarah Palin. Well, not Sarah Palin really, but how Katie Couric got her butt kicked by Palin. CBS Evening News with Katie Couric is cratering in the ratings.

NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams was the #1 evening newscast again last week with a more than 800,000 viewer lead over #2 World News with Charles Gibson. And with an average of 5.18M Total Viewers, the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric had its lowest viewership yet. In fact, it’s the lowest viewership since at least the 1991/92 season, as far back as Nielsen records track.

Yes, I know it’s a stretch to think that Couric’s shoddy treatment of Palin last year is the reason for her piss-poor viewership, but when you are so obviously biased that people can literally smell it coming out of their television screen every night you are going to lose conservative viewers. All who seem to be watching Fox News now, along with a boatload of Independents and a growing number of moderate Democrats.

5. Greg Gutfeld doesn’t really care about George Tiller’s murder. I have to admit I don’t either and for the same reasons. I especially liked this:

But I do have some definition of what being “pro-life” is. It goes like this: if you look at the people you love – your child, your sister, your spouse – and cannot imagine them never being born, then you’re a prolifer. But if you can imagine your loved ones never being alive – then congrats, you’re a pro choicer – and I admire your gumption. Oddly, I’ve never met a pro-choice advocate who can say she wished she’d aborted her obviously adorable child (I’m still waiting!).

Let me be clear. I do not condone this man’s murder. And the man who did it should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. But when we start giving the same – no more, because it deserves more – attention to the murder of an Army recruiter by a Islamic terrorist right here in our own country then you may get some concern from me. Until then not so much.

6. When an 11 year old boy wants to leave half-way through a Will Ferrell movie, you just know it is bad. Ferrell passed his expiration date a while back. He’s just not funny anymore and there are better people doing funnier movies now. For kids and adults.

7. The beginning of the end for private health insurance. Are you folks who voted for Obama feeling all hopeful about this change?

Do You Know Where Your Towel Is?


If, not, you should because today is Towel Day.

Towel Day is celebrated every May 25 as a tribute by fans of the late author Douglas Adams.[1] On this day, fans carry a towel with them to demonstrate their love for the books and the author. The commemoration was first held in 2001, two weeks after Adams’ death on May 11, 2001.[2] The towel is a reference to Adams’s popular science fiction comedy series The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

If you haven’t read the series, you have done yourself a disservice. It’s more than just science fiction, it’s satire, comedy and a rousing adventure all rolled into one. And the towel is just part of it.

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

So grab your towel and remember, Don’t Panic.

The End Of Twilight


I Actually Saw This Book In Borders A Month Or So Ago


And I showed it to loving wife who said, “Is that for you?” with an incredulous look on her face. I put it back on the shelf to say the least.

The very least.
