Hey! It's a streaming video of the Tiger Lillies performing one of my favorite numbers. Although it requires using the detestable RealPlayer, it's worth it. Just this once.

What the- 

So hard to respect.From an NYtimes article by Elisabeth Bumiller
In an interview at the White House on Monday with a group of Texas newspaper reporters, Mr. Bush appeared to endorse the push by many of his conservative Christian supporters to give intelligent design equal treatment with the theory of evolution.

Recalling his days as Texas governor, Mr. Bush said in the interview, according to a transcript, "I felt like both sides ought to be properly taught." Asked again by a reporter whether he believed that both sides in the debate between evolution and intelligent design should be taught in the schools, Mr. Bush replied that he did, "so people can understand what the debate is about."

Mr. Bush was pressed as to whether he accepted the view that intelligent design was an alternative to evolution, but he did not directly answer. "I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought," he said, adding that "you're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, and the answer is yes."

Dave is SO drunk!
Mr. Iain on his way to the Ocean's 13 AuditionsAnd so, I'm no longer tending bar at Zooty's. What a fun year it's been getting all of you silly, sauced and shaken. My time behind the bar was especially satisfying because my father spent his entire life, or at least MY entire life running bars and I feel in some strange way I connected to a piece of him I might have never understood without this tremendous opportunity. I'm not certain if I'll tend another bar after this, it's a good job and I really dug it, but I'm not sure. It'll have to be some place where they don't have Bud on tap and I can play my own music. Kind of a tall order here in Pittsburgh, huh? We'll see. Anyway, these are the last photos I took during my shift a few weeks ago, cheers!
Eric, Lauren and Dave. All fools.
