Miley Cyrus Nude Pics?

Destiny Hope Cyrus (born November 23, 1992), better known as Miley Cyrus, is an American actress, singer and songwriter. She is perhaps best known for starring as Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel Original Series, Hannah Montana. As of March 2008, she is in the legal process of changing her given name to "Miley Ray Cyrus".

I have been half-heartedly following this Miley Cyrus story, where Annie Liebovitz took pictures of the current IT girl and they're now, in the harsh glow of public scrutiny, probably a bit racy for a girl whose bread is buttered by Disney. I feel bad for the girls who worship Hannah Montana, who think this kid is the shiz. I hope Miley's 15 minutes are about up though, and I'm sure we will have decades of Lindsey Lohan like drama from this girl.

Albert Hofmann, RIP

"I believe that if people would learn to use LSD's vision-inducing capability more wisely, under suitable conditions, in medical practice and in conjunction with meditation, then in the future this problem child could become a wonderchild." -- Albert Hofmann (1906-2008)

Albert Hofmann, who died on Tuesday aged 102, synthesised lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in 1938 and became the first person in the world to experience a full-blown acid trip.

Artie Walks off Stern Show

I have a long drive tomorrow and I hope hope hope they replay what happened because I missed it. Here's the story; Here's the source
NEW YORK, April 10 (UPI) -- Artie Lange, a regular on Howard Stern's U.S. radio show, quit after he and his assistant had a furious spat that moved from a studio hallway to the airwaves.

Newsday reported that Lange was heard arguing with his assistant, known as "Teddy Microphone," in a hallway, prompting Stern to call Teddy into the studio to talk about the dispute.

As the argument continued in the studio, Lange became enraged and went after Teddy. However, other people in the studio were able to defuse the physical confrontation, the newspaper said.

Stern told Lange his actions were unacceptable and Lange said he could not guarantee it wouldn't happen again. Lange then offered his resignation, which Stern accepted -- while telling Lange to take some time and calm down.

As he was leaving the studio Lange told Stern: "I'm not a good person ... I gotta leave ... I love you."

Stern and show producer Gary Dell'Abate admitted after the incident that they "did not know what to make of it all," Newsday said.

It is unclear whether Lange will be back, since Stern's show isn't live Fridays and the crew is on vacation next week.

"I'm not a good person ... I gotta leave"
Yeah, I said that last week Artie, you seem to be a fat selfish asshole.

Artie Lange is an Ass

I listened to a little bit of the Howard Stern Show yesterday. I'm still not listening to Bubba the Love Sponge out of protest for the fact that Ned is really just Manson, and Bubba is ripping off the listeners who believe it with "Bubbapalooza starring Ned.

Anyhow. Right from the start of listening to Howard a couple of years ago I noticed that he surrounds himself with "losers" and people he can make fun of. He rarely has comedians on his show anyhow, (who the hell is Bob Levy and who thinks his cranky ass is funny?). Benjy Bronk, Scott the Engineer, JD, Richard and Sal, BabaBooey- there's something wrong with each of them that becomes the "drama" for the show, the storyline. Howard talks about his own foibles and faults ad nauseum, but since the staff worships him it's clear that he's the only one allowed to talk about those faults. Except maybe Robin, which is probably why so many fans hate her-she comes off as competent.

Then there's the Whack pack, retards, people with funny voices, midgets, retarded midgets- literally (see Beetlejuice). More people he can make fun of.

Hitler did the same thing- all the people in his administration had issues, a club foot or drinking problems or some fault that could make the insecure boss feel better about himself by comparison.

But this is not a stab at Howard. He feels bad enough about himself that I don't want to point anything his way, and he's smart enough to know what he does and over analyze it. I'm just setting the stage here.

Yesterday's show featured Artie Lange saying some really horrible things to a Whack Packer named High Pitch Mike. I'm sure whack packers can be annoying, and having this person, who apparently said some awful things about Artie's father, who fell off a roof and was paralyzed for a while before it killed him, must be hard, but Lange's venom was disturbing. If Artie weren't such a miserable shit of a human it wouldn't have gotten far enough for High Pitch Mike to say that stuff. He said something to the effect of "Look, I hope you don't die of aids, I hope you're in a horrible car crash and are crippled for about ten years then die a painful death." I mean, that's just evil.

Artie Lange was a failed comic on Mad TV. He was fired from that job because of a drug problem. Norm MacDonald had him tag along to the Stern Show one day and Howard liked him and hired him as the comedic sidekick. Now, revisiting what I said- Howard seems threatened by actual funny comedians (he never has them on, unlike Bob and Tom, for example), and he hires people with whom there is some sort of major character issue, and we understand how Artie Lange has his job- ie, he's not very funny, and has no self control (food, drugs). Somehow, someway, he has become a wealthy man (he should bend and pray to Howard every day for that by the way).

Of those to whom much is given, much is expected.
Artie is wealthy thanks to whatever lucky horseshoe he has up his ass, he has fans. He should not be arguing with a loser whose only claim to fame is a high pitched voice. I've listened to the show off and on for a couple of years now, and I've wondered what the hell Artie is there for. I'm tired of his "drug addict" stories, it's like the semi nerd talking up his bad boy image to make the rest of the nerds look up to him for his street cred. I think most of that is BS anyhow. How many grossly overweight heroin addicts have you ever seen? Jerry Garcia was a rich heroin snorter too, and he was svelte compared to this guy. The other week Artie was talking about batting against John Maine of the Mets, and bragging up his "semi-pro" baseball career. Uh huh, climb another rung on the delusion ladder.

That's my two cents.

Hippity Hopping around the blogosphere

Just checking in, life is still too crazy to blog much. I spent a little time today hopping around the blogosphere using the "next blog" at the top to see who's out there. There's a crazy number of non english speakers who have blogspot blogs out there.

Occasionally one finds a nice family out there who blog about nice things though, or an informative blog that talks about something interesting. One has to jump through ten blogs of foreign places in foreign languages, porn blogs and other trifle to get to them though.

Oh well, who said the information superhighway was gonna be pothole free?
