Mary Katharine Ham slams O’Reilly for bringing up her child in pot debate

http://twitter.com/#!/mkhammer/status/422897489977831424

Mary Katharine Ham and Bill O’Reilly once again went toe to toe on marijuana legalization Monday night, and Ham was not pleased to have her child brought into the argument on national television. Fox Nation has the full segment, but this clip skips right to Ham’s eye roll of death.

They Turned Around For A Dog On The Side Of The Road And Left With A New Best Friend

The Ringstaff family motto is simple. As they say, “We can’t save the world, but we can do something about the one in front of us,” so when the caring crew saw a large dog lying by the side of the road, they immediately turned around to help. They thought that the dog had been hit by a car, but he was actually fine. He was, however, lying next to another dog that had sadly been killed. Based on his body language, they determined that this brave guy was grieving the loss of his friend.

The family couldn’t get the dog into their car, so they went home to get the truck. When they returned, he was still sitting by the side of the road. They called local shelters to try to find out if he had an owner, but when it seemed like nobody was looking for him, they decided to name him Tucker and invite him to be a part of their family.

What a beautiful giant Tucker is! I’m scared to think of what would have happened to this guy if his new family hadn’t come along. Based on this act of kindness, it’s clear that Tucker is now part of the best family ever.

Steven Crowder on Dana Loesch show: ‘I was beat down by a mob’

http://twitter.com/#!/DLoesch/status/278582597599260672

Twitchy has already reported that an angry union mob violently tore down an “Americans For Prosperity” tent in Lansing, Michigan, and punched Steven Crowder repeatedly in the face. Video of the assault can be seen here.

Crowder appeared on Dana Loesch’s radio show shortly thereafter to give his account of what ensued. Here is what he had to say:

“They literally would have killed me where I stood if I defended myself.” – @scrowder right now. #dlrs

“They said they would kill me with a gun. It’s all on tape.” @scrowder #dlrs

“I was beat down by a mob of people.” – @scrowder #dlrs

“None. Not one.” said @scrowder when I asked where the police were #dlrs

Shudder: Introducing the ‘Vote With Your Vagina’ Twibbon

http://twitter.com/#!/LilMissRightie/status/261783490566172672

The Obama campaign has repeatedly treated women like walking “lady parts.” And earlier this week, CNN suggested women’s voting habits are ruled by — you guessed it — lady parts!

Last night conservative Twitterers discovered a liberal’s campaign to get women to adorn their Twitter avatars with “Vote With Your Vagina” Twibbons. Really:

Vote With Your Vagina, add a #Twibbon now! twb.ly/SBFYEZ

— jillsmo (@jillsmo) October 26, 2012

@bakwudshouswife everyone needs @jillsmo ‘s vagina on their twitter pic.all the cool tweeters are doing it.

— Rhonda Hartman (@absolutlyrhonda) October 26, 2012

Yes, liberal women (and men) are decorating their avatars with tiny purple cartoon vaginas.

Lulzzzzzz. Also, if your vag is purple, see a doctor stat RT @zoeythegreat: OMG, srsly?!?!?!? twb.ly/SBFYEZ

— rebecca grunewald (@duchessrebecca) October 26, 2012

And they’re encouraging each other to “Vote With Your Vagina.”

If people actually vote with their #LadyParts I’m going to need some Purell.

— Jon G. (@ExJon) October 3, 2012

The purple Twibbon was created by a woman who describes herself as a “snarky liberal Mama Bear of 2 boys.” Her Twitter bio demands, “Ask me about my vagina.”

You’ve come a long way, baby! Also, no thanks!

Aaaaaaaaand scene! MT “@thegrudgeretort: WTF? RT @rbpundit: Shut up! RT @zoeythegreat: OMG, srsly?!?!?!? bit.ly/VKIEI3

— Jim J (@anthropocon) October 26, 2012

Is conservative Twitterer @FirstTeamTommy up to the challenge? Indeed he is:

Please help support Vote With Your Vagina, add a #Twibbon now! twb.ly/SBFYEZ

— Tommy(@FirstTeamTommy) October 26, 2012

Just an FYI – In support of ‘Vote With Your Vagina’ I’ve added a Twibbon to my avatar.#MyVaginaVotedForMitt

— Tommy(@FirstTeamTommy) October 26, 2012

Here’s his vagina Twibbon, pasted right over a ballot with a vote for Mitt Romney.

Note to the purple vagina brigade: conservative women won’t be reduced to sexual organs and will be voting with their lady smarts, not their lady parts.

Boehlert: Limbaugh re-signing with Cumulus sure proves Hannity wrong

http://twitter.com/#!/SaintRPh/status/370956277272158209

Not long ago, Media Matters’ one-man Obama administration spin machine, Eric Boehlert, was turning cartwheels and helping to push the rumors that Cumulus was going to dump Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. In the case of Limbaugh, the supposed upcoming dumping was due to advertiser backlash.

Hannity did not end up re-signing with Cumulus, and reportedly had harsh things to say about the company. For Boehlert, Limbaugh re-signing with Cumulus debunks Hannity’s alleged claim, but Boehlert seems to forget that half of this story debunks his own previous orgasmic assertions that Cumulus was going to dump Rush:

http://twitter.com/#!/EricBoehlert/status/371008942903922688

Shorter version: “I was wrong and that makes Sean Hannity look foolish!”

Flashback to late July:

http://twitter.com/#!/EricBoehlert/status/361645607477198848

The appropriate sound effect:

But wait, there’s a new desperate angle. This guy’s a laugh a minute:

http://twitter.com/#!/EricBoehlert/status/371025336815079424

Got all that? If Limbaugh wouldn’t have re-signed with Cumulus, that would have been Boehlert’s proof that Rush has fallen. But Limbaugh did re-sign with Cumulus, and now that’s Boehlert’s proof that Rush has fallen. It’s like Al Gore’s climate change game: No matter what happens, it’s evidence supporting his claims. Or maybe we should call them “frustratingly unfulfilled fantasies.”

Not so Glee-ful: Musician Jonathan Coulton unloads over ‘Baby Got Back’ rip-off

http://twitter.com/#!/jonathancoulton/status/294645496155344897

@jonathancoulton you aren’t coming across as Glee-ful.;(

— Mike Foley (@mikefoley) January 25, 2013

@jonathancoulton So sorry you have to deal with this kind of blatant bullshit. Artists deserve better. I’m glad you seem to have recourse.

— Erik Lars Myers (@topfermented) January 25, 2013

It’s on. Computer programmer-turned-singer/songwriter Jonathan Coulton has been fuming over what appears to be a blatant “Glee” rip-off of his 2005 cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s hit tune, “Baby Got Back.” The show aired the arrangement tonight.

I love that #glee just covered Baby Got Back – slow mo and with banjos!

— Becca Obergefell (@OberBecca) January 25, 2013

#glee oh no they didn’t slow down Baby got back!! Haha! I love it!!!

— Princess Shala (@phoenixmoon3) January 25, 2013

@phoenixmoon3 Jonathan Coulton did it first, they simply ripped off his cover. #glee #babygotback #teamcoulton

— Jessica Garcia (@00jess_marie00) January 25, 2013

#glee Baby Got Back – They stole it. Melody and arrangement actually by @jonathancoulton whom they have neither credited nor compensated.

— Scott Smith (@saspcguy) January 25, 2013

Last week, after first getting wind of the cover, Coulton tweeted:

Hey look, @gleeonfox ripped off my cover of Baby Got Back: bit.ly/WME9Ho. Never even contacted me. Classy.

— Jonathan Coulton (@jonathancoulton) January 18, 2013

After listening, I think that @gleeonfox may have even used parts of my recording. Do I hear a duck quack? And of course they say “Johnny C”

— Jonathan Coulton (@jonathancoulton) January 18, 2013

Fans backed him up:

@jonathancoulton @gleeonfox Wow that IS a straight up rip off. Get a lawyer on that asap.

— thesubstream (@thesubstream) January 18, 2013

@jonathancoulton It was at the ‘Johnny C’ that my jaw just dropped.

— Whit Andry (@whitneyarner) January 18, 2013

That’s a reference to a tell-tale lyric in Coulton’s version. Wired reports:

“I assume [Glee] heard [my cover] and wanted to put it in their show. Which is flattering, but also an email would have been nice — just a hi, howya doin’ kind of thing,” Coulton told Wired by e-mail.

Coulton notes that the YouTube video was not an official Fox release of the song, but the track is currently for sale on the Swedish version of iTunes, as reported by Kotaku, where it appears to be offered from the official “Glee Cast” account. The song is reportedly slated for the Jan. 24 episode “Sadie Hawkins.” Wired reached out to a Fox representative, who said that they had no comment on the matter.

Coulton immediately posted the video on Twitter side-by-side with a link to his version of the 1992 hit single, and the resemblance was beyond uncanny, even simulating quirks like Coulton’s name drop of “Johnny C.” It was so close, in fact, that Coulton speculated that the same audio might have been used, and recruited his followers to help him analyze the track.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison:

Music fans confronted Alex Anders, music producer for the popular TV show, on Twitter after Coulton’s complaints:

@alxanders hey here’s an awkward question have you ever heard of jonathan coulton

— ellie (@blainefabray) January 18, 2013

@mrrpmurphy @alxanders @adamanders Will you address using Coulton’s version of Baby Got Back without telling him. All over media.

— gleekTO (@gleekTO) January 18, 2013

Hey @alxanders, any insight/remarks into what @jonathancoulton is talking about re: Glee stuff?

— Phil Vox (@PhilVox) January 18, 2013

Anders responded (and later deleted this tweet that was retweeted by many users):

“@alxanders: Some people can’t see opportunity when it smacks them in the face.” The sheer entitlement from this statement is sickening tbh.

— Quanita(@Flirttana) January 18, 2013

Or they purposely avoid it so they don’t get sued. RT @alxanders: Some people can’t see opportunity when it smacks them in the face.

— Kamari Diabla (pls)(@KammySanM) January 18, 2013

Coulton responded as well:

@alxanders Actually, I’m pretty sure I felt the smack…

— Jonathan Coulton (@jonathancoulton) January 18, 2013

And more music fans/Glee viewers weighed in:

@jonathancoulton @alxanders Baby Got Smack.

— Jeffrey Bryson (@jwalkerbryson) January 19, 2013

Hey @alxanders stop being a jerkface and apologize to @jonathancoulton also give him some of that mad Gleemoney

— Hexagonest Badass (@Badassperger) January 20, 2013

After Anders deleted his “opportunity” tweet, he posted this:

My comment yesterday about opportunity had absolutely nothing to do with what many of you assumed.

— Alex Anders (@alxanders) January 20, 2013

Yep:

Then why did you delete it? RT @alxanders My comment yesterday about opportunity had absolutely nothing to do with what many of you assumed.

— Diabla (@Diabla_Cruz) January 22, 2013

Coulton responded:

@alxanders OK then: sorry. Internet is hard.

— Jonathan Coulton (@jonathancoulton) January 20, 2013

The #TeamCoulton movement is building as the public (and possibly legal) showdown heats up:

I’m with @jonathancoulton.

— mark mcconville (@markmcconville) January 25, 2013

@gleeonfox I’m a big fan of yours, but also @jonathancoulton. So disappointed in you.

— brigideire (@brigideire) January 25, 2013

Read that @jonathancoulton is furious over Glee. Good! I have a feeling Fox maybe getting some legal action here!

— Larry Treece III (@Lareson3) January 25, 2013

And really, @foxtv ? How did you not know that @gleeonfox had ripped off that arrangement including his own NAME?! #JohnnyC #TeamCoulton

— Menolly (@Menolly07) January 25, 2013

Spread love and awareness, #teamcoulton. Remember that disrespect will only hurt @jonathancoulton – show the world how classy his fans are.

— Jen (@antijenic) January 25, 2013

Maybe the Glee fans who don’t know @jonathancoulton will ask #WhoisJohnnyC? #TeamCoulton

— Rora Borealis (@rora_borealis) January 25, 2013

We’ll update with any further response from Anders or details from Coulton.

Until then, tuck away this takeaway lesson: Coulton has earned at least $500,000 from music download revenue, merchandise, and performances. Intellectual property rights do matter, even among left-leaning creative types and Internet geeks. Every creator deserves the fruits of his labor and deserves recourse when those fruits are shamelessly stolen without credit/attribution/linkage — from the Fox network or anyone else.

That >> Artistic theft w/o credit hurts everyone.Don’t piss on your geeky fans, Glee.You need us more than we need you. #teamcoulton

— Leo Nerd (@leo_nerd5) January 25, 2013

You did it #GLEE. Ya ripped off an original arrangement from @jonathancoulton & put it on TV without even trying to act like ya didn’t. Wow!

With A Few Ingredients, She’ll Show You How To Make Pepperoni Pizza…In A Mug!

The problem with living alone is that unless you have an industrial-sized freezer at your disposal, it’s insanely hard to store food for one. (And this usually results in me eating entire pizzas by myself.)

But YouTuber Gemma Stafford has a come up with a few perfectly proportioned meals that are ideal for bachelors and bachelorettes! Watch as she demonstrates how to make everything from brownies to pizzas in the microwave. And the best part? All of them are cozily made inside of microwavable mugs, which really cuts down on cleaning time! It’s a win-win situation, people.

These recipes are perfect for those of us who live alone and have endless amounts of weird leftovers in the fridge from failed cooking experiments. Plus, anything that helps me avoid washing pots and pans is amazing in my book.

Chris Matthews freaks out on Reince Priebus over GOP’s ‘race card’

http://twitter.com/#!/TheUSReport/status/240068633706000384

Boldly going where no Democrat has ever gone before, Chris Matthews cemented his status as The Boy Who Cried Racism during an MSNBC segment with RNC chair Reince Priebus this morning.

Here's video of Chris Matthews' rant just a few minutes ago. http://t.co/rCvscx1O

— Christian Heinze (@CPHeinze) August 27, 2012

Whining about Mitt Romney’s birth certificate joke, an increasingly unbalanced Matthews unleashed a torrent of blather:

It is an embarrassment to your party to play that card. This stuff about getting rid of the work requirement for welfare is dishonest…. and you are playing that little ethnic card there. You can play your games and giggle about it, but the fact is your side is playing that card…. It’s a race card.

It’s the GOP side that plays the race card?

It's so insulting that Chris Matthews thinks food stamps are a "race card" issue. http://t.co/aTE4PUMv

And evidently Matthews missed the recent MSNBC memo: no need to stop short at accusing the GOP of playing the race card. He could’ve gone all in by labeling everything Republicans do “the most despicable bigotry we can imagine.”

Farewell to missed opportunities, Chris.

Still, at this rate, Matthews will be a quivering puddle of drool before the GOP convention gets into full swing.

I like how @Reince says to Matthews (around 1:49 in) "You're loaded up". I think he meant with talking points but alcohol is just as likely.

— Not Gary Busey (@NotGaryBusey) June 25, 2012

The socialite slipped on some jewel-encrusted headphones and made her debut as a DJ in Sao Paulo, Brazil last weekend, and even days later critics are struggling to express in 140 characters exactly how little fun was had on the other side of the decks.

Superstar DJ and current electronic dance music (EDM) chart-topper Deadmau5 was among the first to declare the event the end of music and, possibly, the world:

How bad could it be, really? All you have to do is play some records, right? It was her first time (DJing, that is), so there’s certainly no shame in having an anonymous assistant run onstage mid-set to twist the volume knob for you.
