Hey everyone out there in Savannah (or not) go vote on some of the best of Savannah. Do SCAD Radio for best local radio station and if you enjoy listening to Your Friend, the Viking vote for him as your favourite local radio personality. While your at it, vote General Oglethorpe & the Panhandlers as best Local Americana Rock Band (or some other genre) and possibly Word of Mouth as best Funk/Jam band. There are many more that surely I am forgetting, but you’ll know. Have fun!
I am sorry. Normally I would not boast such broad claims about people specifically, but Sarah Palin, you are just an idiot. Wow. To think that Discovery is thinking about giving you a show about nature in Alaska. It is just appalling to me that can give someone like you a show while also Stephen Hawking, one of the smartest minds on the planet. I guess they’re just trying to get the complete range of IQs in its entirety, eh? Wow.
The Huffington Post just recently “looked at which schools the witty-independent-artist-intellectuals most often float to — places where the pants are tight, the hearts are bleeding, the conversation is postmodern and gender is nothing more than a social construct.”
Please sign this petition to prevent this disaster from happening.
Anti-environmentalism has no place in the Discovery Communications lineup. Demand that the company cancel “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” before it airs.
The former partial-term Alaska governor is reportedly getting paid $1.2 million per episode to host a television series called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” to be broadcast on TLC, one of Discovery Communications’ channels. And if Palin runs for president in 2012, a show that provides her the opportunity to greenwash her environmental record on a mainstream, eco-friendly channel is downright dangerous.
Here’s what Sarah Palin’s real Alaska is:
She accelerated Alaska’s cruel aerial wolf-hunting program while in office, introducing a $150 bounty for each slaughtered wolf’s forelimb.
She made a personal appeal to Alaska voters to oppose a ballot measure that would have stopped the immense Pebble Mine operation from dumping cyanide and mining waste into streams that make their way to Bristol Bay, home to the largest sockeye salmon fishery in the world.
When President Bush finally agreed to list the polar bear as a threatened species in 2008 because of global warming’s effects on its habitat, the governor sued to challenge the listing.
Armed with her “Drill, Baby, Drill” catchphrase, Palin called for opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Cook Inlet to oil and gas drilling.
With such a disastrous environmental track record, how could Sarah Palin get a nature show on an eco-conscious media platform like Discovery? The answer may lie in Discovery’s COO, Peter Liguori, who joined Discovery in December after a previous stint at Palin’s other TV home: Fox Broadcast Co.
We can’t let an anti-environment extremist like Sarah Palin take over Discovery and spread her “drill here, drill now” message on a science and environment network.
Speak out now and demand that Discovery pull Sarah Palin’s show before it airs.
I’m really excited right now, because I just got my pre-order of the new Horse Feathers album Thistled Spring off of Kill Rock Stars. I haven’t listened to it yet, but I will be playing a song tonight on Your Friend, the Viking: the Radio Show, which can listen to by going to SCAD Radio or under the College Radio section on iTunes. Stay tuned for my review of the album within the coming day.

Last night/this morning I dreamt I woke up and walked into the living room where all my friends had been hanging out with Zooey Deschanel. Then I realized Zooey Deschanel was still there hanging out, but I had to go to class and she also had to leave. We rode bikes together and ended up at this massive junkyard where we looked through all of these old books and metal letterpress type. We found a trampoline or some sort of mattress/water bed object and laid down upon it. We laid there looking up into the bluest of skies, connecting clouds with pictures, people and names of other things.
