injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."


No one can fill your shoes…

Friday marked the one year anniversary of the death of Michael Jackson.   If you haven’t seen his final work in “This Is It,” you’re missing a rare insight into this musical genius.   The link will take you to the review I wrote on the film.  

Michael’s life was mired in controversy, much of it of his own making, but nothing can take away from the musical legacy he left us and the millions of lives touched by his humanity.

Nude Rugby

What will those crazy Kiwis think of next?   An annual event to coincide with National Nude Day, this year’s contest attracted over 2,500 fans willing to spend the first day of New Zealand winter watching a bunch of naked guys bashing around a ball in the buff.  Fun for the whole family. 


Of course, every year the event is plagued by some spectator who insists on streaking while fully clothed and this year was no different.  Spoil sport. 

The prize?   A toilet seat trophy.   I would have thought a ball warmer.

Republicans kiss corporate ass while giving the American people the big FU…

No surprise there.

Last week oil industry tool, Joe Barton (R) Texas, made news by apologizing to BP for being made to put a $20 billion dollar down payment on the costs of their catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf which has devastated the lives and livelihoods of many of the people there.

This week Joe and his GOP pals pulled the plug on unemployment benefits for millions of our jobless neighbors, family and friends, while fighting tooth and nail to defeat any meaningful financial reform that might hamper corporate America’s ability to continue the very same policies that caused the economic meltdown to begin with.

There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind:   If you’re Wall Street you’ve got friends in the GOP. 

If you’re Main Street, you’re on your own.

No more ugly kids…

Not if BeautifulPeople.com has its way.  With 600,000 members worldwide, the dating site bills itself as the world’s largest network of good-looking people, though it recently cut 5,000 members who gained weight.

The website is creating a fertility “shopping mall” where its members can discuss reproductive issues and move forward if they find a match that suits them. 


Plans are to eventually allow unattractive people access, as well.  “Initially, we hesitated to widen the offering to non-beautiful people,” Robert Hintz, a founder of the site said.  “But everyone – including ugly people – would like to bring good-looking children into the world, and we can’t be selfish with our attractive gene pool.”

What a humanitarian.

A word about General McCrystal-meth…

Because a dip into the drug scene is the only reason I can come up with for someone who’s supposed to be a pretty bright guy running off his mouth to a magazine that features Lady Gaga in a machine-gun bra on its cover.

Seriously, General… WTF?!

And finally, the King of Pop…




Rest in peace, Michael...
