Trent effing REZNOR nominated for the R&R Hall of Fame in 2015? That's a joke, right?

Vote for the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees
Green Day, Nine Inch Nails, N.W.A, the Smiths, Lou Reed and Sting have been nominated for the Hall's next class


The nominees for the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are in, and for the third consecutive year, the public gets to vote alongside the artists, historians and music industry insiders of the Rock Hall voting body. From now until December 9th, fans can vote right here for the nominees they'd like to see inducted. The top five acts will comprise a "fan's ballot" that will count as one of the more than 700 ballots that determine the Class of 2015.

As Rolling Stone first reported, nominees for the Hall's next class include Green Day, Nine Inch Nails, N.W.A, the Smiths, Lou Reed, Sting, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Kraftwerk, Chic, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, the Marvelettes, the Spinners, Stevie Ray Vaughan, War and Bill Withers.

In order to be eligible for this year’s ballot, artists or bands need to have released their first single or album in 1989 or earlier.

Billy Bob Thornton's sincere, heartfelt and resonating eulogy for Paul Revere

Paul Revere & The Raiders
Wednesday, October 8 at 5:51pm ·

From Billy Bob Thornton:
"Paul Revere was one of the kindest men I ever met. He had such interest in people and enthusiasm for life. I am so happy I had the opportunity to get to know him, as he was a big part of my youth. Paul Revere and the Raiders were on TV or on the record player around our house all the time. When I went to his home I was made to feel as welcome as a family member. When I asked if it would be possible to see a Raiders jacket or hat, he disappeared into the house and not only came out fully dressed in an entire Raiders outfit, but also gave me one. I am a proud owner of one of Paul's Raiders outfits, complete with a tri-corner hat. I still stare at it like it can't be real. But it is. And that's what Paul was. Real."

Study: Majority Of Americans Not Prepared For A Sucker Punch To The Gut

Study: Majority Of Americans Not Prepared For A Sucker Punch To The Gut

The Department of Health and Human Services says disturbing scenes like this can be prevented if Americans take the correct precautions before a sucker punch hits.


WASHINGTON—Warning that millions of citizens across the country are currently at the highest level of risk, a study released Tuesday by the Department of Health and Human Services revealed that the vast majority of Americans are not adequately prepared for a sucker punch to the gut.

Agency officials determined that as much as three quarters of the American populace, or some 240 million individuals, are fully exposed and vulnerable to the threat of an acquaintance or fellow bar patron coming out of nowhere, placing one hand on their shoulder, and then drilling them square in the stomach with a closed fist.

“According to our findings, the average American has not taken even the most basic precautions for the possibility that someone might wait until their guard is down and land a sudden, solid blow directly to their gut,” HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell said, noting that citizens nationwide would likely be caught unaware and left completely devastated should a sucker punch hit in the near future. “Many people seem to believe that a sucker punch won’t happen to them, or that if it does, it won’t be particularly harmful. But the unfortunate reality is that a sucker punch can strike anyone at any time without warning, and it can be one of the most awful events of one’s life, often leaving victims doubled over and grimacing for minutes on end.”

“That is why it’s absolutely crucial that citizens develop a comprehensive preparedness and recovery action plan immediately,” she continued. “Because by the time someone slugs you in the belly, it’s already too late.”

Supermarket Worker Leaves With $1,200 Worth of Meat in Pants

Supermarket Worker Leaves With $1,200 Worth of Meat in Pants


Is that thousands of dollars of sausage in your pockets, or are you just happy to see me? A&P supermarket employee, Gregory Rodriguez, has been accused of fourth degree grand larceny after he was found trying to leave work with $1,200 worth of meat in his pants.

The theft occurred on Tuesday in Hudson, New York, and one presumes that the authorities are just as puzzled about how and why Rodriguez managed to fit that much meat inside his pants, and what he would do with such a bounty.

Rodriguez was arraigned Tuesday night, and after no plea was made, he is due back in court later this week. Despite the unusual nature of the crime, Rodriguez isn’t the first person to try and get away with stolen meat. A Melford man pulled the same act with a trench coat last year.

"I mean, is Harry Reid being hypocritical here? I mean, is Harry Reid being hypocritical here?"

Ah, morning Joke, the intern killer.

He says things twice in rapid fire because he assumes you are stupid and didn't pay attention the first time.

Just said that on his morning show, which satirizes serious news programs.

Thinks "Republicans and Democrats alike should condemn" Harry for raising money while condemning those who accept funds from them thar Koch boys.

Strut, pout, put it out...that's what they want from Jebby. I can't stop laughing.

Wow, W's heartfelt admission that "I think he wants to be President" kind of went sideways, didn't it?

Seems like it's going to take more than two terms for 'murca to love them Bushes again and elect (or to be more accurate, allow the powers that be to select) another one of them for more Presidentin', Stretch...

You made Jebby cry, you bastids. I hope you're proud of yourselves.

PS: I'm sure most of DU got the reference in my thread title, but for those who didn't, it is courtesy of the lovely six-time Grammy nominee Ms. Sheena Easton. Enjoy this highly dated and camp blast from the past.

Th-th-th-that's all, folks.

Parents Face Backlash After Changing Baby's Diaper On Chipotle Dining Table

Parents Face Backlash After Changing Baby's Diaper On Chipotle Dining Table


A mom's decision to change her baby's diaper on a dining table in the middle of a Chipotle restaurant is making headlines this week -- and raising plenty of eyebrows in the process.

According to The Consumerist, the mom in question was having a meal with her 16-month-old daughter when the tot needed a diaper change. However, when the mom found that the establishment -- the store was in the Midwest, the outlet states -- didn't have a changing table, she changed her child's diaper on a table in the dining area.

The woman's husband, Chad, reportedly sent a letter to Chipotle's headquarters, defending his wife's behavior and criticizing the restaurant's employees for telling the family they'd have to leave if they tried to change another diaper in the dining area. In the letter, obtained by The Consumerist, he said that while his wife's choice to change their baby on a dining table may have struck some as "unsavory," the employees displayed an "inability/unwillingness to empathize with parents who find [the car] a less convenient alternative even on a beautiful day like yesterday, much less a subfreezing day as we undoubtedly will have in [this region] this winter."

Chipotle responded to Chad's letter by saying that they were "currently in the process of retrofitting locations with changing tables," according to the outlet. In a written statement to The Huffington Post Tuesday, the company confirmed that it is "looking to incorporate changing tables into new restaurants that are in locations where we are likely to see a high concentration of families as customers."

Ted Nugent unloads on African-American “thugs” in horribly racist column about Ferguson (Salon)

Ted Nugent unloads on African-American “thugs” in horribly racist column about Ferguson


Rocker, right-wing polemicist, and Republican campaigner Ted Nugent has launched yet another racist tirade, penning a column in which he assails “Ferguson thugs” and a purported “plague of black violence” and demands that African-Americans stop supporting liberal politicians.

Nugent’s latest racist outburst – which comes after the entertainer called our first African-American president a “subhuman mongrel” and defended the South African apartheid system and the use of the n-word – arrived in the form of his column for far-right website WorldNetDaily.

He begins his column by noting that a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri was recently shot as he investigated a break-in. (Officials have said that the shooting was unrelated to protests over the August shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.) Nugent wonders why “the media have made it a point not to describe the suspect or suspects the police are searching for,” and then proceeds to draw his own conclusions about the suspects.

“Based on crime stats in Ferguson and elsewhere,” Nugent writes, “it would be a safe bet to assume the two thugs the police are looking for are black males between the age of 15 and 25.”

So Kissinger and Ford were planning a second-term war against Cuba. Charming.

Right now on Lawrence O'Donnell's show.
