Swiss ... keepin' out the Chocolate

I'm sure I'm not the only one that noticed the similarity between this (controversial) ad by the "Swiss People's Party" (which runs won on the platform of "gettin' rid of the darkies") and this old Minor Threat ablum cover

which I always liked because the black sheep is like "No Way!" and runs away.

Tay Zonday

I was doing the NOW crossword this week and one of the clues was "Chocolate Rain singer", and the letters were filling in, but it wasn't the name of any singer that I recognized.

And then I came across this :

Tay Zonday is maybe the first YouTube popstar and Chocolate Rain is the first YouTube hit, but I don't even think it's his best song.

Finished Project: Sweat Equity



I finally got off my ass and finished the Sweat Equity project bike.

Basically it involved stripping off almost everything and putting on a track cog and BMX chain. Total cash outlay about $20.

I figure I can flip it to some hipster who is tired of taking the bus from art classes to the Arcade Wolf concert for about $125.

Castro Hat and John Deere T-shirt not included.

Update: Craigslist rocks! I listed it 3:15 and it was gone by 4:50 !
