Looks like the Raider Nation has been pillaged. Had my first journalism class today. I have to get one of those long journalist notebooks. Still not sure if I should get a trenchcoat and a hat with a piece of paper that says "PRESS" in it.

Super Bowl XXXVII starts in about 5 hours from now. They just can't call it "the 2003 Super Bowl," can they? They'd rather just number each one so you can't remember what year it was when you first saw that commercial with the Budweiser frogs. And those Roman numerals just make it seem wayyy more important to everybody. At least I only have V more months till I turn XXI. School starts tomorrow. Yippee.

It's pretty cold here in NYC, as you may have seen on the news. Reporters are actually going up to people on the street and asking them about the weather. "Yes, it is cold. I've got 43 layers of clothing on." Like we don't know it's cold out. Please ask random pedestrians if they think it's cold, then maybe I'll believe you. I need a second opinion for this kinda thing.

The judge in that claim against McDonald's causing obesity threw the case out. He basically said if you don't know you're gonna get fat eating this, you're a dumbass. Good to hear stupidity lost one for a change.

My friend showed me this web site where you can make yourself as a Lego person! Possibly the greatest site ever. Click here. Now if only I could make myself as a Simpsons character...

This is my last week off before going back to school. Hopefully some cool, weird shit will happen, but I doubt it.

A few days ago I saw an infomercial for a video, "Charlton Heston Presents The Bible." I'm not joking, see for youself here. Apparently he went to Israel and Egypt and tells the stories of the Bible on location. Possible quote: "This is where the Apostles bought their guns. That Judas had quite an aim." It's Buccaneers/Raiders in the Super Bowl. I like to call it "The Pirate Bowl." I'm sure Richard Gere is excited about it, if you saw the Golden Globes last night: "Arr arr." He actually made those sounds on stage after getting an award.

Tomorrow is Martin Luther King, Jr Day (observed). Always thought that "observed" on the end of any holiday was kinda pointless. If it's already a holiday, then it is observed, otherwise it would just be a regular day. Anyway, MLK has taught me something. You can do some great things in the world, but in the end, how do they reward you? That's right, with a sale at JC Penny. They turn your life into a 20% discount on your birthday (or birthday observed). I wonder if Lincoln would have freed the slaves if he knew someday his birthday would be a great time to buy a mattress. Ironically the guy died in a bed that was too small for him.

Well the Jets lost, so the fans have vanished. I seriously think the Jets' goal every year is to lose to the Raiders. "Next year, let's lose to the Raiders in the third round." Went to the city yesterday with a friend. We both agreed we wanted to make a weird video with weird things going on with weird people. Maybe we'll put it on BCAT (if we're lucky!). Stay tuned for updates.

All of a sudden everyone is a Jets fan in NY. The bandwagon is just gettin more and more crowded. I guess us Giants fans are jumping ship after the crushing loss last Sunday. Everyone is bitching because they were screwed over by the refs, but I have zero confidence they would have gotten the 3 points on the 2nd try. Their field goal unit is pathetic.

So the Clonaid says the 2nd cloned baby has been born. That would just suck, forever being known as the second clone. "Hey, there goes the second clone, never was as good as the first. Can't beat that first clone." And it was born to a lesbian couple, which means gays can now reproduce for real. This could be great news for the fashion industry. Another thing was that the couple is living in the Netherlands, where cloning is illegal. My first thought was not "holy crap, more cloning," but "holy crap, something is illegal in the Netherlands." I thought you could do anything there.

Happy New Year out there. I think it's time for some 2003 predictions: People will wear their "2003" glasses from Times Square on a regular basis, after they are worn on a March episode of "Regis & Kelly" by Tony Danza. "The Anna Nicole Smith Show" is canceled when she eats her son after being told he was a white-chocolate Easter bunny. More likely (?)- "The Anna Nicole Smith Show" is canceled because it's a fuckin stupid show. The United States invades Iraq, to which Iraq will fall. A 51st star is added to the flag and Iraq is renamed “Arizona 2, the Mustache State”. Michael Jackson undergoes surgery to become black again. In a related story, Tito Jackson undergoes surgery to have a career again. The surgery proves fatal. “Barbershop 2” hits theaters. Al Sharpton urges others not to see it, claiming, “Hell, I ain’t in it, so it probably sucks.” After the public is notified of this fact, the movie goes on to become the top grossing film in box office history. Dr. Phil tells people how they need to readjust their lives. A new cult arises against his popularity, called “Mind-your-own-damn-businessism”. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck will wed. The marriage breaks up after only a week however, when J-Lo announces, “My bad, I thought he was Matt Damon.” Paul Hogan, best known as “Crocodile Dundee,” gets into a fight with the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. Irwin is killed in 4 seconds. A street is renamed in Hogan’s honor. And finally, Trinidad and Tobago decide to become 2 separate countries. Trinidad becomes a senator, while Tobago is best known for wearing pants with the ass cut out in a video aboard an air craft carrier. They are reunited years later on a Kathy Lee Christmas special.
