I heart NPR because they constantly deliver total awesomeness to the world. Plus, Steve Inskeep is a stud muffin.

And speaking of NPR, I also added a link to my sidebar for Carrie Brownstein’s blog Monitor Mix

HOPE: an observation.

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

This is just a quick B.S. post before I head off to my Fiction Into Film class.

I like Obama. I’m glad he’s our president and I like a lot (but not all) of the things he’s doing. I don’t believe he’s trying to take our guns away, despite what the right wing fear mongers would have you believe but that’s besides the point.

The HOPE poster Shepard Fairey created for the Obama ’08 campaign is amazing and it moved almost instantly into the realm of iconic…however, the trend of people who have been Photoshopping pictures of themselves in the style of the HOPE poster for their Facebook profile pictures has got to stop.

Okay, we get it, the poster was cool but frankly, the election was last fucking year, Obama is the president now, get over it and do something original (like using a picture of yourself in a foam block pit from your son’s 3rd birthday party…now that’s original.) Besides, most of them look like shit because either these people can’t figure out how to use Adobe Photoshop or, because they can’t use Photoshop they made them in MS Paint.

You hear me, people? Stop it, just stop it now. It’s already jumped the shark, move on to something else. Once someone made the JOKE version with Heath Ledger everything else was instant lame sauce. You cannot top that because that is sublime.

welcome to bacon is my anti drug. your life will never be the same.

Welcome to the inaugural post at bacon is my anti-drug.  My name is Hogs and I’ll be your host on this greasy, hickory-smoked ride.  I haven’t really ever had a blog before (though I had a few false starts) so please excuse the technical fuck ups I’m sure to expose all of you to.

A little background about myself, I’m a student at KSU in Manhattan, KS and a DJ at the campus radio station, KSDB The Wildcat 91.9.  I’ve been listening to this station since the summer of 1996 when I moved to Manhattan…back when it was called DB92.

This site will basically serve as an outlet for information about the show, playlists and various other bullshit I feel like posting.  As Adam Sandler says in The Wedding Singer, “I have a microphone and you don’t, so you will listen to every god damn word I have to say!”

That’s pretty much all I’ve got right now.  I want to give huge props to Brian who is basically my mentor and guide in all things having to do with computers, teh interwebs and man love.  He inspired me to start this site, set up the hosting, created the logo, etc.  Basically anything awesome at this site that isn’t words is his doing and you should thank him for that.
