It's Friday, it actually feels like a Saturday, I'm fairly fried after a long week, I'm off on vacation after today for at least the next week, I have lots of shit to do before this much-deserved respite, I've gotta sprint out to Lawn Gisland again tonight for a wedding rehearsal dinner, our pets heads are falling off...
So in lieu of any strong to quite strong rhetoric or uninteresting posts about the Yankums or Phish this morning, allow me to point you to this ridiculous article that contains the following elements: China, heroin-soaked women's panties, a girl named Wang, the unintended punny phrase "Wang was arrested after a tip-off," and a semi-morbid turn at the end about her potential punishment.
Hey Wang, I think this country is restricted, so don't tell 'em you're carrying heroin-soaked panties!
Slack Explanation of the Day: Some of you may have noticed I took down the Floyd Landis "Life Cycle" suicide post from yesterday... Please note my opinion on the matter has not changed, and I still feel the same way today I did when I posted it. I'll debate you suckas 'til the cows come home (and commit suicide in the pasture). But the sentiment of the piece was really not in the spirit of this here rag. We're a fun-loving bunch, not unlike Marky Mark's friends, and that thing had no place on Slack. If you want to debate, post something on your own blog and let's get it goin'. Thanks, MGMT.
Slack Link of the Day: Deputy Girardin found this absolute gem of a piece, a hilarious article by Cocaine called "When This Meth Thing Blows Over, You'll Come Crawling Back" from The Onion.
Slack Video of the Day: P-Noonan over at The Electric Commentary sent this badboy over last night -- Leonard Nimoy singing a strange tune called Ballad of Bilbo Baggins. One may think this song kinda makes him look like a Douche Baggins, but I think the joke's on us.
Slack Song of the Day: Another Friday mix from the good people at StreamStash, this time just from the "R" section -- God Bless the Child (Richie Havens), Ripple (Rick Danko), Photograph (Ringo Starr), Sailing Shoes > Hey Julia > Sneakin' Sally Thru the Alley (Robert Palmer), and The In Crowd (Ramsey Lewis).
