Three Delightful Ways To Spend A Few Minutes.

Written by  //  February 8, 2008  //  Popular Culture and Internet Fancies  //  5 Comments

With the end of yet another working week upon us, our thoughts naturally turn to the myriad ways we can whittle away the final hours of potential productivity, embracing the immediately gratifying over the sapless and productive. Here, then, are three more reasons for you to place your priorities on the back burner, as though you needed further prompting.

#1: The video for “La Revolucion Sexual” by La Casa Azul

I never tire of championing Guille Milkyway’s over the top alter ego, La Casa Azul. With the release of La Revolucion Sexual, Milkyway has admitted to his legions of fans that the “band” who performs his songs is merely a group of cyborgs he has programmed to impart harmonic magnificence upon all who will listen. In the video for the title track, the subject is treated rather literally and–even if it isn’t quite as good as the videos from La Casa Azul’s first record–is only to be disliked by the pretentious and self-concerned. Va a suceder, la revolución sexual.

#2: The bottomless ignorance of Pat Robertson

It's Pat!Mike Huckabee’s surprisingly strong showing on Super Tuesday got me thinking about all of my favorite bigots and morons in the religious right, a favorite of which has always been Pat Robertson. The founder of the Christian Coalition, Regent University, and the Christian Broadcasting Network, he is perhaps known best as the mentally deficient host of The 700 Club. Just how crazy is this man? Take a trip over to the Random Pat Robertson Idiotic Quote Dispenser and find out. Did I mention he claims to leg press 2,000 pounds?

#3: The feast of awesome cool things you don’t know about

Brix PicksBrix Picks is a sadly underappreciated blog written by a young New Yorker who has impeccable taste in every aspect of art, culture, and life. Her weekly post–really a mega-post given its serious length–tackles everything from the usual (music, films, literature) to more unusual suspects (hunky icons from bygone decades, drink recipes, inspired ways to spend a few hours). Bonus points for the remarkably crafted design work which incorporates happy octopuses [yes, that is the plural, look it up] and rampant psychedelia. Try it, it’s tasty.
