The 4 Chord Song!

Here Aussie musical comedy group Axis of Awesome show that all you need to have a hit song is the right 4 chords. And in case you're wondering they're playing a I V vi IV progression in E. If you include the classic I IV V progression and the Ice Cream changes (I vi IV V) that pretty much defined 50's music, I bet you've covered 75%+ of all pop songs. So go write a 4 chord song and you too can have a hit.


Jimmy Carter: Kitteh Killer
Yeah this is old as in from 1990. And yes he killed his sister-in-law's cat with a shotgun. And like usual he blames the victim. What a bastard.

Crazy Tinfoil Hat Rumor: N. Korea Torpedoed The Gulf of Mexico Oil Platform
And Obama has ordered a total news blackout on it. Also the only way to stop the oil flow may be a nuclear bomb. Of course there's absolutely zero sourcing on all this and it seems to be missing the requisite extraterrestrial involvement. Oh and remember - it's shiny side out to block the mindrays! H/T to CH.

Is Apple Getting Too Big For Their Britches?
I have a iPhone and have had Apple products in the past and have always happy with their quality and ease of use. Which is pretty much why I considered them in the first place. But recently Apple the company has been showing their dark side which was easier to ignore when they were basically an also-ran. But now they're the largest phone company in the US and their neurotic obsession with secrecy and control is beginning to become apparent to the general public. With their recent use of law enforcement to punish a blog for showing a lost iphone prototype, banning a seal hunt iphone game without explanation, and refusal to allow users the option to even install flash if they want to, they're making their famous 1984 ad look more and more ironic. It's one thing to want to offer a nice user experience, but this seems more about control and paranoia. I still respect their engineering and attention to detail and I love my iphone but as soon as Android matures and is a decent alternative, I'm completely open to switching over.

The 9 Deadly Words Used By A Women
Yeah 'Fine', 'That's okay', and 'Go ahead' all pretty much mean the opposite. And 5 minutes means 30 minutes minimum unless it refers to something that you have to do. And then there's the deadly 'Whatever'.

Tonight's post brought to you by Mattel:

I'm pretty sure this is where the story that M16s were made by Mattel got started.
