Supreme Court Nominee

In a striking twist George W. Bush will announce his Supreme Court nominee at 9pm. This is an odd turn of events because a single half hour after dodging questions about the nomination process and saying that he wasn't sure when he planned to make his decision, he had his wipping boy Scott McClellan back track. At this rate the Bush administration should begin back tracking before they bull shit us. But anyway it's not a big deal back track. Plus what do we know Jesus probably hit up GW and told him who to pick right after that meeting.

Here's hoping for a real loony. J-Bo our Indiana-intern thinks it's gonna be Judge Judy. My vote is for Judge Dread cause I think he's going to defend Roe v. Wade (plus since 'The Contender' sucked so bad what's Sly up to).

Ryan Schreiber

Full diclosure Ryan Schreiber has probably influenced what I listen to more than anyone. More than Beck, Thom Yorke, Stephen Malkmus, or Kurt Cobain. Seriously. Every weekday I look at Pitchfork with the kind of autistic need that "Rain Man" watched Wopner (spelled wrong? but of course). And it delivers. So after this weekends festivities in Chicago (full review is on it's way) I felt it was time to thank Ryan and his minions at Pitchfork for helping nerds to fake cultural superiority so well.

Above is a photo of the Walt Disney of indie rock websites. I'm almost certain I observed Ryan taking photos during the Wrens amazing Sunday evening set. He deserved an encore too.
