Volunteer Tailgate Party: better late than never?

Posted by Thomas Nephew on April 16th, 2004

Sorry for the delay, but you can see it turned into a pretty wild tailgate party! There’s a little food left over still… but hurry! Some guy is scarfing down the last sub, and there’s a raccoon slinking off with noodles on his whiskers.

Deb, Sugarfused: she made her photoblog Sugarsnaps Gunner Miller, No Quarters: The best museums are so far out of the way that most people never even know they exist. Granny Rant: Bush's Latest Pee Pee Dance Eric Simonds, Straight White Guy: ..on the glory of Tartan Day.. Eric Simonds, Straight White Guy: ..on the future extinction of Giant Pandas Brian Ruckle, Voluntarily in China: Asian Americans in an uproar over 'Gay or Asian' feature in Details magazine. One Asian returns the favor with 'Ignorant or White' picking on a familiar target: Southern whites. Way off target. Brian Ruckle (Voluntarily in China): Chinese beauty Hu Qiaoyu + Wonder Woman. My Google traffic has gone through the roof on this one. Ashby (knock/snooze) going to be missing these.. Goobage: ..and when did we know it?  Maybe Time Magazine should take over U.S Intelligence activities? Medb's blog's name has changed to Medb's Montage -- adjust your bookmarks. Barry (Inn of the Last Home): All Keyed Up -- commentary on people's reactions to being wronged. Barry (Inn of the Last Home): My blogspace -- here's where I blog!

Chris, My Quiet Life: Kerry on Iraq Mike, Half Bakered: Punk Rock Big Stupid Tommy: Sunday--a brief essay that says sometimes the good deed isn't always punished, after all. From Janet's other blog, Second Day Lede: The morning after the big presidential press conference, one more reporter shows up SayUncle: A dispute with Michael Zitz SayUncle: Stages of moving -- learn to throw stuff away. Southknoxbubba: Preview of Bush/Cheney 9/11 Hearings Testimony Rex Mundi, Damn Art Diary: Your Momma's so hairy, she's a Neanderthal: Some information concerning the search for Almas in Asia. The post also explores the story of Zana, a supposed Alma who allegedly interbred with humans and produced offspring. Thomas, Newsrack: Time shaving: a shameful pattern of corporate theft

Pass your mouse pointer over the images to see what they’re about. Don’t forget to take a look at Bush’s tie! And the heart may look like it belongs with those two happy pandas, but after all, what’s love got to do with it. (Darn: I could have put it between Bush and Cheney: why else do they need to do everything together…)

A couple of submissions I couldn’t squeeze in were by Brian Ruckle (an odd Chinese fashion) and Stoney (a different take on chess). If I left anyone out, I apologize, and will be happy to add them to this post as soon as I can.

Technorati UPDATE, 4/26: Here’s a minimalist set of text links to all of the image-mapped posts, since Technorati apparently doesn’t display image-map links: . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
