Grumpy Old Men

Franklin Paul Crow, 56, was arrested early Monday and charged in the beating death of Kenneth Matthews, 58, allegedly over and empty roll of toilet paper.

Crow beat Matthews so badly that he had to be identified by fingerprints. As only one of the two roomates are alive, the Marion County Sheriff's office is depending on statements from Crow who allegedly beat the other man with a sledge hammer and claw hammer when arguing over an empty roll of toilet paper.

Had he never heard of his roomate's towel or the local paper?

Lachey Livin' off the Hog

Former 98 Degrees member and Mr Jessica Simpson, Nich Lachey is reportedly holding open the option to receive spousal support from his ex, Jessica Simpson. While Nick was the big breadwinner prior to the marriage, that status changed as the popularity of his boy-band declined and Jessica's career kicked off. In wife fashion, he's laying claim to his jewelry and earnings since their split. But seems to be after some of the Dukes of Hazzard money. Jessica's earned more than $30 million in the last year.

In other news K-Fed aka Kevin Federline is reportedly looking to hire Nick as a mentor/manager as insurance against an impending break-up in his marriage to Brittney Spears.

Cats Storming Embassies

Following Muslim protests against Danish cartoonists, cats worldwide have been storming US embassies and offices of United Features Syndicate and King Features two of the largest comic strip syndicates. There have also been widespread denial of service attacks against their respective websites, and

Cats have been protesting their unfair betrayal in comics such as "Get Fuzzy," "Garfield," "Dilbert," and "Hi and Lois." In a press release issued by the cats they claim, "We are tired of being portrayed as fat, lazy and scheming. We do more than eat and sit around the house and we certainly aren't as entertaining as the number of comic strips would suggest. Seeing how world unrest can be brought about by something as innocent as a comic strip, we are working as a brotherhood to better portray our species."

A number of cats were found on the streets outside of King Features alternately sleeping and lying in the sun wearing banners proclaiming, "You might be too tough for Greenwich public schools, but you've never been subjected to the fury of cats" believed to be directed at the King Features president.

Freedom of Speech Test

After a cartoon in a Danish newspaper of the Prophet Mohammad wearing a bomb hat has sparked protests and burning of the Danish Embassy in Lebanon (followed by a nice high that calmed down the attacking Lebanese until they got the munchies and decided to attack the Quicky Mart), now an Iranian newspaper is holding a competition for cartoons on the Holocaust.

This seems to b ring about a number of problems:
- If you can't show any pictures of Mohammad, how do they know what he looks like (someone sinned before the Danish paper). Its like the first rule of Fight Club.
- Don't a lot of Muslims deny that the Holocauust ever happened? How do you draw cartoons without in some way acknowledging that it existed.
- if the Iranian newspaper would crawl out from under its rock, it may notice that the Holocaust and the christian religous symbol, Jesus, are and have been used in satire, comics and popular culture in both good and bad lights for decades.

What's next, Palestinian's looking for potato famine cartoons, Republic of Congo looking for cartoons showing how the French don't fight? Indonesian papers showing Jews being cheap?

It doesn't seem to be a battle with many good results for Muslims as most of the world doesn't seem to really care.

Read a quick blurb about this the other day in an email and after a few days of trying it, I really dig it. The site is You put in artists or songs and it tries to guess like artists and music to play for you as well. You can also rate the songs thumbs up or down and unlike sirius or xm radio online, the songs are sent at higher quality. You can also jump to the next song if you want.

Paris Hilton slow spot

Having been literally weeks since she made any news, Paris Hilton is back at claiming some diaries were "stolen" from a storage facility.

David Hans Schmidt is handling the sale and must be thanking Paris for the new free publicity.

Elsewhere Dave Chappelle told Oprah that he was stressed out and not crazy on drugs when he dissappeared rather than completing filming of his show. All that money made choosing between different types of pot very difficult and he couldn't decide which would go better with watching the super bowl.

Kate Moss Questioned on Cocaine

Lured by a prize announcement letter commonly used to snare probation violators in the US, Kate Moss was lured back to England to face questioning on her alleged cocaine use with her sometimes boyfriend and former Babyshambles singer.

Unlike in the states, England can apparently detain you for evidence of past drug use within the country. Unexplained however is Keith Richards and all other models who've been to England.

Cingular takes page from Palm

Cingular releases today a new version of its less thab successful ROKR phone. The new one dubbed Slvr has all the same internal specs as the old one, so no more songs and no more memory. You do get a slimmer phone though for you $200.

Presumably this will be marketed more as a new Motorola candybar first and iPod features second. Expect discounts on the old one soon.
