- Wow, beheadings certainly seem to be on the rise. What's up with that? First, we had the Brazilian guy who beheaded his British girlfriend. Then the Canada bus beheader. Then the Greek "cleaver killer." Beheadings are the new black.
- Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood got hisself a new chick. Meet 18-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova:
Not bad, Ronnie Wood! It's worth reading the article, which contains high amounts of win, to learn that Wood drinks two bottles of vodka a day, met the chick in something called an "escort bar," and that the chick called Wood her boyfriend on Facebook.
- I'm a big fan of the Neighborhood Crime Log. Here, for example:
At 2:50 a.m. July 23, an individual was sitting on Broadway and Montgomery Street playing a guitar with an amplifier when he was approached by four men, two of whom were from Santa Rosa. One attempted to divert the man’s attention while the other stole his amplifier. When he tried to get it back, one of the men punched him in the face. Officers stopped a vehicle with the suspects and stolen amplifier aboard. Three of the four men were arrested for robbery.
First of all, if you're playing a guitar with an amplifier at 2:50 a.m., I say you deserve whatever you get. Second, I love the fact that two of the men were "from Santa Rosa." What's the significance? Is Santa Rosa known as a breeding ground for robbers and I'm just not hip to it?
- Brett Favre is kind of a dick. He goes through this whole big teary retirement thing and the Packers go with Aaron Rodgers and Rodgers is finally going to get his chance to be a starter and I'm sure he works his ass off in the off-season to get ready and then Favre goes, "Ah, fuck it, I'll unretire." And now everyone's all confused about whether he gets his old parking space back and what to do about the whole mess.
