Balls to you, Daddy

We don't watch television at home, so forgive me if this is old news, but while i was in the waiting room at the dentist today, a Cadillac commercial came on and they were playing a lifeless version of what i think of as a Clash song, Brand New Cadillac. It turns out the song isn't actually by the Clash. So as terrible as that commercial was, i at least have it to thank as i now go do some digging and find older versions of the song. Which is so easy nowadays. At one point learning this would have triggered a cross-state epic record store adventure; now i'm just going to do some googling.

By the way, one version not mentioned in that Wikipedia article is the hip-hop Incognegro version.

It's a Gordon Ramsay world

Restaurants are reducing the number of options on their menus. No word on whether they're also replacing all their tables with booths and benches.

(Kevin Drum disputes the idea that they're reducing their menus for aesthetic reasons and not as a cost cutting measure, but that ruins my joke. "Joke".)

Something for the ladies

We've all seen the Milo Manara Spider-Woman cover, so it's only fair to give something back. Here's how the Drama Channel advertises Pride & Prejudice.

Obsession with that particular scene has apparently reached gigantic and terrifying proportions.
