Which One Is Iowa?

DES MOINES — The Iowa Supreme Court will hear oral arguments Tuesday in a pivotal same-sex marriage case that could echo throughout the nation and be far more difficult to challenge at the ballot box than a high-profile ruling in California, legal experts say.

The case, Varnum v. Brien,could make Iowa the first state in the Midwest to legalize gay marriage, says University of Iowa law professor Angela Onwuachi-Willig. Other high-court decisions favorable to gay rights advocates have come from traditionally liberal, coastal states: California, Massachusetts and Connecticut.



I know it’s somewhere in the middle, but there will be plenty of time to figure that out later.  Depending upon how this goes down, maybe this will be the month I have all my innermost desires fulfilled:
    1.) TI performed on SNL 
    2.) Kanye had a song on Grey’s Anatomy
    3.) Gay marriage makes another step forward which may allow me to one day launch my new site, barnyard-match.com

My White House Policy – Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em!

WASHINGTONPresident-elect Barack Obama said you won’t catch him lighting up a cigarette in the smoke-free White House.

Asked in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” whether he has kicked the habit, the president-elect admits there are times when he’s “fallen off the wagon.” But he adds under the circumstances, he thinks he’s “done a terrific job” of making himself “much healthier.”


What’s the big deal if Obama wanted to puff a stogie in the White House?  The place isn’t white as an expression of virtue or anything.  Need I remind you, he is the cool president?

Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers, Get Your iPhone Here

In the coming weeks or months, you might be able to get your iPhone at Wal-Mart and get this, you might be able to get it for $99 with a 2-year contract. 

iphone-3gSo, this might further deepen and expand Apple’s market share in the smartphone space, but will it further alienate those customers who jumped on that iPhone train long ago for a much higher price? Or is it inevitable that technology will continue to evolve and in doing so, the price decreases? I guess we’ll see how Apple fares with the increased competition from other cell phone makers and the perceived cannibalization of its customers.

If You Seek Amy…

Tell her she’s a straight up ho and I want my Folex back. OK, back to the post. Here’s a cut off Britney’s new Circus and it’s causing a bit of an uproar because of the chorus:

“Love me hate me, say what you want about me, all the boys and girls are begging to “If You Seek Amy”. The phonetics people, sound it out! I, of course, love dirty stuff. 

If the video gets pulled, just do a search for it – I can’t do it all – damn y’all. But seriously, buy the CD cause it’s really quite good, even if she had very little to do with it.

Also, check out the track “Phonography”, it’s about phone sex. But please remember these 5 words: This Shit Ain’t For Free.

Dear Pamela Anderson

Pam, I love you – I do. I admire you for your intelligence (yes, truly!) and your commitment to causes that I hold dear to my heart. I even loved watching your E! show, Pam: Girl on the Loose.


However, I’m not sure that wearing that is helping any of those causes and frankly, please put that shit away

Venice Has That Sinking Feeling

venice-under-waterAs sirens blared throughout the city, the Mayor Massimo Cacciari asked prospective tourists to not visit – and advised those already there not to move around unless it was “unavoidable” because of the “exceptional” situation. “Anyone thinking of coming to Venice should think again,” he said.

As the sea surged into St Mark’s Square, arguably Venice’s most famous landmark, it became completely submerged under eighty centimetres of water. In total, more than 95% of the rest of central Venice was flooded and some pontoon bridges began floating away in the rising tide, leaving residents stranded in their homes.

Driven by strong winds and heavy rain, the water rose to 156cm above sea level – the highest “acqua alta” since 158cm in 1986. Sirens sounded as the Venice tide monitoring centre warned that the water could rise to over 160 centimetres for the first time in thirty years.

The worst floods took place in 1966 when the waters reached a record 194 centimetres above sea level, causing devastation to homes, shops and historic monuments and art works. Flooding of 100-130cm above sea level is common in the lagoon city in autumn and winter.

Why Do Dogs Lick Feet?

Yes, it’s kind of gross – but less gross if you actually own a dog. I have three dogs and two of them love to lick people’s hands and feet, as gross as it may be. But I often wonder why, and I’ve heard it’s a result of the salt in your sweat but I’ve also heard it’s just their expression of love. So I did a little digging and here’s what I found after the jump.

Here’s a related clip from one of my favorite movies, Serial Mom.
