Better Than a Facebook Blast

Maybe you've been there before - late night, a couple cocktails in ya and you just want to vent something regrettable on Facebook or Twitter.

Penn Jillette on 'Red Eye' - Video -

Short interview of Penn Jillette on a recent episode of Red Eye. Conservative, liberal, don't really care at this point? Tivo Red Eye at midnight on Fox. Good stuff if you like Bill Mahr, The Daily Show, etc.

Zombies In Seattle...

Ah yes, only in Fremont. What better way to blow off some steam than take part in Fremont's upcoming "Red, White and Dead" Zombie Walk on July 3rd. Organizers are hellbent on taking back the world title from England this year with upwards of 10,000 sun-starved Seattle zombies roaming the streets...
