The following is an open letter from Charles Lewis of Coach House Capital proudly proclaiming his own Bill Ayers connections and putting the record straight regarding Barack Obama's.   Hello everyone,   My wife, Penny Sebring, and I have confessions to make.  We've been "palling around" with that 1960's radical from Chicago – Bill Ayers – for years.   Think of it – Penny, my petite, demure, Peace Corps, Northwestern PhD, school-improvement expert, rese...

Growing up in Michigan and having lived most of my life since in Houston, I learned a few things early that have stuck with me. College football in California sucks. So does college football in Florida. This is a Michigan-Texas common ground. Sometimes it hasn't actually bourne true. But it's still some good common ground. Professionally, the old lessons have held closer to form. Sports teams from Chicago blow (usually true). Sports teams from Dallas are big wusses. (True often enough). And so...

In keeping with our two on-going themes of metal and fast-food, I submit the below: Flyer for West Michigan kings, Throttleman The artist was actually concerned that its execution in MS Paint was subpar, and Photoshop might've worked better. Maybe so. But I think it's perfect in its early '80s metal cheese value.

I could easily have lived there for four days. Coming and going for four days would've been a drag. But the combination of friendly yet functional security and a crowd to match would've made it a very nice place to live, listen to music, and sit in the sun. As it was, one day was all that was possible this year. Inside the gates Cool: Being able to find free street parking within even Houstonian walking distances to the venue, saving $15 and avoiding a rutted patch of ...

REPOSTED from www.mediabistro.com Tuesday, Aug 19 Watchmen Dispute: Alan Moore's Work is Jinxed Watchmen was the only thing anyone was talking about at Comic Con this year. Kevin Smith told the director of the film Zack Snyder at a standing room only panel,"The whole reason we ever had a Comic Con was that someone would make a Watchmen movie. I feel like after I see it I can die!" It's due to be released in March (3/6/09 to be exact...snort). Now, 20th Century Fox says it owns the rights b...

We could drill everywhere in the U.S. and not meet our energy needs or reduce prices. The U.S. contains only 3 or 4 percent of the world's proven oil and gas reserves. As the U.S. Department of Interior has indicated, at the most, only 4 billion barrels of oil reserves lie off the entire Atlantic coast - about a 200-day supply based on current U.S. consumption of 20 million barrels a day.   We do not need to open new areas for drilling. Four times more natural gas is available in areas a...

This week: There's not much bad to say about the final 2/3 of "There's No Place Like Home", but I give it my best shot anyway. LOST, Season 4, Episodes 13 & 14 There’s No Place Like Home (pts 2 & 3) I. The Future They Create A. What about Locke’s reppaearance off the island makes it important to call him “Jeremy Bentham” at every opportunity? You’re adding five syllables to the name of a guy who’s had one name for the entirety of y...

This week: The greenhouse effect as everyone storms towards The Orchid on "There's No Place Like Home." LOST, Season 4, Episode 12 There’s No Place Like Home I. Leavin’ On A Jet Plane, Don’t Know When I’ll Go Nuts And Demand To Go Back Again A.  It would be harsh to classify Jack’s schemes as harebrained (and I’m no stranger to being harsh about what Jack does, doesn’t do, thinks, doesn’t think, is, isn’t, etc.), but wh...

This week: Great, just what I needed, more story complications in "Cabin Fever". LOST, Episode 4.11 Cabin Fever I. Locke To The Future A. Maybe I should consult Juliet on this one, but I wasn’t aware that being six months pregnant and getting hit by a car means you have to deliver the kid immediately? I can see an emergency c-section if something went wrong with the mom, but since Mama Locke has a Claire-like dexterity and suffered little more than a scrape on the head...

This week: Jack wishes he had "Something Nice Back Home," but we quickly learn again why Jack can't have nice things: because he's a d-bag. LOST, Episode 4.10 Something Nice Back Home I. Meet The New Jack, Same As The Old Jack A. Every Jack-centric episode makes it more and more frustrating that he’s the “focal” character of the show. This time around, as we watch his descent into the bearded madness to come, it’s becoming painfully obvious that he&rsq...
