News brieflets

* Single-author sites are the wave of the past? Whoa! Lucky I’ve still got staffers Tran and Mbongo on retainer. (Well, technically, I guess they’re more restrained than retained.)

* Jennifer Marohasy’s site has survived its first year, and thus is added to the blogroll at left.

* New neighbours partying next door have entered the feeling-no-pain stage, as evidenced by destructive attempts at acoustic song. I’ll drop by in the afternoon with atomic coffee.

* Jeremy Sear has been digging through his own waste.

* According to a Fijian newspaper, al-Qaeda goons have tried to bribe guards at Saddam Hussein’s trial.

* Anyone catch Jerry Lee Lewis on Letterman? Dude has better hair than me and he was born in 1935. New album due in September.

* You won’t believe what you can find at eBay Platinum Reserve.

    1. Huh.  Only newspaper cutout I’ve kept is the infamous New York Post pic of the Axis of Weasels.  I guess Leftyboy would not find the humor in that one.

    1. That wouldn’t be Dr. Tran, would it?

      Man, that kid gets around.

      The Killer rocks on, he’ll shake your nerve and he’ll rattle your brain, too much talent drives a man insane.  40 years later,
      LIVE at the STAR CLUB still sends me.

    1. Bloody hell Tim – Jeremy Sear links on a Sunday morning? Have a little consideration.

      You guys get Letterman? <hack>Down there, has his comedic value spiraled counterclockwise?</hack>

    1. Letterman’s comedic value spiraled counterclockwise years ago – in the Northern Hemisphere.  Still couldn’t get rid of him.

    1. Dont know where else to put this.
      Absolutely disgusting treatment of a brave woman.

    1. #6 – Jim, Australia had its very own Letterman clone, better known as Steve Vizard, for a couple of seasons (15-16 years ago). Some people considered Vizard a great original until a rival network started screening Letterman. After that it was time to say goodnight, Steve.
      In more recent times Vizard’s also been exposed as a business fraud. So I guess you’d say he’s not so funny anymore, either.

    1. I remember reading about a Letterman clone in Germany too. (Stupid Aryan Tricks?) Maybe every country has one.

    1. Beware the Multiplying Letterman – a plague of not-quite-bibilical proportions.

    1. Tim, Marohasy is a shameless corporate shill.  You do yourself no favours by linking to such a hack.

    1. A shameless corporate shill, you say? Wish I’d known; I’d have linked to her earlier.

    1. Marohasy is another one of these highly qualified people who are always recklessly checking the facts without the slightest concern about what we are supposed to think.

      I can only echo the concerns of our distinguished contributor Gusty by urging people not to visit her site.

      I will do my bit by trying to keep it down to once a week or less.

    1. I don’t think that Jeremy Sear is someone who publishes stuff without permission – I think he is just doing his own kind of recycling.

      As part of my own Near-ness to Sear-ness campaign, I have started to pick through my own waste.
