May 26 2008 'Pixie dust' may help regrow vet's finger


'Pixie dust' = Salamander dust, no wait- pig dust, I mean stem cells
I like the way CNN decided to change the term "stem cell" with all its baby killing connotations to "pixie dust." Especially since the pentagon has been given all this tax revenue to conduct research .
Pixie dust does have a better ring than non-human stem cell regenerative reduction sauce.

May 23 2008 Teen in tux saves stranger in store


Teen in tux saves stranger in store Video T-shirt
This is not a rip on CPR class or saving lives- all very necessary and noble causes. This video, however, is creepy in that they just keep cutting to this guy pounding on a doll's chest with that infiltrating noise. I was a little disappointed that he was not in a tux and CNN was promoting T-shirt sales based on their clever title.

May 21 2008 Arrest ends pilot's nude romp in the woods


These young kids were just having a little fun. A pilot took a flight attendant to the woods after boozing her up at a local diner and they lost their clothes. Thanks to alarmed neighbors and the heat-seeking equipment on a local helicopter, the pilot was found crouched behind a shed in only "flip flops and a wrist watch". She was charged with theft and "other offenses", but the article does not explain.

May 14 2008 T-shirt seller likens Obama to monkey


T-shirt seller likens Obama to monkey Video which was so George W. C- for originality.

Catcalling-- creepy or a compliment?
Busy travelers forget toddler at airport, fly on
'Fusion Man' soars above Swiss Alps- pretty cool footage of this guy with rockets and wings strapped to his back zipping around the alps.

nice pairings do not balanced reporting make:
Jack Black confirms: Twins for Jolie, Pitt
Actor tells House of newborn twins' overdose

Moore plans 'Fahrenheit 9/11' sequel
New movies make light of 9/11 attacks Video

I was cruising down 3rd st. near Larchmont today and a bunch of construction type trucks were lined up in the median for blocks. Possible protest action. If any one has information, please let me know.

May 12 2008 Skimpy Prom dress lands teen in cuffs


prom season coverage Video T-shirt
I really like how CNN reporters asked this girl to model her "inappropriate" dress in a playground. Savvy.

May 9 2008 Teens tell police they converted skull into bong


Today's drawing suggested by Sarah Elated:

Teens tell police they converted skull into bong

The associated video is great. It's a blair witch style voice-over free sequence of a man stacking pieces of Willie Simms' headstone back into place. Then he washes his hands in a pool of stagnant water, which is foul and creepy since the article claims the coffin is at the bottom of this pool and officials are waiting for it to dry out before examining the corpse disturbance.

Some select sensational newslessness today:
Turning 50 prompts 75-pound weight loss
Drivers honk, scream to get $3.55 gas Video T-shirt
Pals drive through 48 states in 106 hours
Kids' book calls pot 'just a plant' Video T-shirt
Don't adjust monitor ... puppy IS green Video T-shirt my fav because the lady at the spca is mildly chafed by the reporter's relentless attempts to sensationalize placenta/embryonic fluid fur tinting, which to her is really not newsworthy.
