Sway
Spring Street, Manhattan
Why did we have to drop names and pimp our attractive friend to get into this crowded, overpriced craphole? Certainly the crowd was no less interesting than the nearby Holland Tunnel traffic. Maybe it was the fact that every table had a sign on it – white lettering on a black background – "reserved." Well, I'm intimidated. I think I'll come back every night and kiss the bouncer's ass so she can feel important. When I get in again, I'll be a big, big man. On a scale of 1 to trashed, I'd have to be pretty damn drunk before you could convince me to go back to Sway. | posted by JVG on 12/23/2002


DIE ANOTHER DAY
Yes, things like terrible computer-generated stunts, more-infantile-than-usual double-entendres, and AN INVISIBLE CAR all work together to make the 20th 007 outing fairly unpleasant. But the greatest flaw is the fact that this time around everyone in the movie – from the villian to the villian's henchman to both of the Bond girls to Judi Goddamn Dench – is playing Bond better than Pierce Brosnan. There's been a lot of talk about bringing "depth" to the 007 character, which, if this movie is any representation, means that he breathes heavily and is angry a lot. On a scale of The Living Daylights to From Russia With Love, I give this movie a View to a Kill. | posted by JVG on 12/9/2002

ANTAGOZINE INBOX: BOLD NEW SPAM

A rather ingenious new type of meta-spam:
Within a message complaining "please stop spamming", a forwarded email (purporting to be the spam we sent) offering "reliable bulk email friendly web hosting services" because they're "sure you've had a website shut down because you listed it in your bulk emails."

From: robert@focusmart.net
Date: Wed, 29 Jan 2003 15:37:25 +0800
To: anger@antagozine.com
Subject: UCE Complaint (Bullet proof bulk email friendly web hosting) / please stop spamming !!!

I have received the following unsolicited e-mail from someone at your domain or your IP range.

I do not wish to receive such messages in the future, so please take the appropriate measures to ensure that this unsolicited e-mail is not repeated.

------ Forwarded Message

From: no_reply@sing.com
Reply-To: no_reply@sing.com
To: ahk@hwh.cc
Date: Tue, 31 Dec 2002 23:12:36 +0800
Subject: Bullet proof bulk email friendly web hosting

If you want to promote your web site via commercial email, bullet proof web hosting is a must! As you may already know, many web hosting companies have Terms of Service (TOS) or Acceptable Use Policies (AUP) against the delivery of emails advertising or promoting your web site. If your web site host receives complaints or discovers that your web site has been advertised in email broadcasts, they may disconnect your account and shut down your web site.

We offer reliable bulk email friendly web hosting services. You can now have the peace of mind knowing that your web site is secure during your email marketing campaigns. Bullet Proof Web Hosting 100% Guaranteed!

This means you can send bulk email with your website address in it, and your website will not get shut down! I'm sure you've had a website shut down because you listed it in your bulk emails.

For more information, please Email us at hosting@wldinfo.net and targetemailrequest@btamail.net.cn


------ End of Forwarded Message


A minimal amount of research reveals that domain names “focusmart.net” (the domain name from which the complainant wrote) and "wldinfo.net" (the "for more information address" in the included spam) are registered to the same person.

That person: a gentleman by the name of Philipy Fisher, who lives – if WHOIS is accurate – both in “Goldools, Keries, Zambia” AND “Goldools, Keries, Korea (North)”

Korea (North), eh? Looks like this spam is just another dastardly plot from the Axis of Evil.

ORIGINAL INTENT
The folks over at Patrick Henry College's Center for the Original Intent of the Constitution are doing some admirable work, fighting against evils like migratory birds. Their recent cases page touts victories in pollution and homophobia.

A victory for the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County vs. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineer is hailed as "a significant step back towards the original intent of the Constitution." One can only imagine what glory lies ahead for the OITC.

THERE'S A PUBIC HAIR ON MY MEMOIR
Clarence Thomas got a seven-figure advance for his memoir, which "appears to be the most lucrative ever for a sitting member of the modern Supreme Court" and, according to The Washington Post is "on a par with the $1 million publishers paid [Anita] Hill to write her autobiography and one other book."

Also according to TWP: "The American Bar Association's Model Code of Judicial Conduct, which is not legally binding but is widely adhered to by judges, does not specifically mention earnings from books, but does say that 'a judge shall not engage in financial and business dealings that . . . may reasonably be perceived to exploit the judge's judicial position or . . . involve the judge in frequent transactions or continuing business relationships with . . . persons likely to come before the court on which the judge serves.'"

WHITE HOUSE FUN
The White House website is a beacon of democracy and bipartisanship in these troubled times. The leadership has obviously made every effort to assure that the site does not espouse any particular agenda, but remains an impartial source of Executive Branch information for all of the American people.

Some unbiased news coverage from the homepage:
• Today at the White House, Jan. 8, 2003: President Bush Taking Action to Strengthen America's Economy link
• The President's Plan Will Help Unemployed Americans Find Work link
• 92 Million Taxpayers Would Receive, on Average, a Tax Cut of $1,083 link
• Saddam Hussein's Iraq: For more than a decade, Saddam Hussein has deceived and defied the will and resolutions of the U.N. Security Council. link

And where would a government website be without BarneyCam (RealPlayer required)?

UPDATE: UGNYC believes that Barney is "a secret agent for the forces of good who undermines the Bush administration by piddling on things." "Not unlike Cheney."

NEW WTC DESIGNS RAISE IRE IN NYTIMES FORUMS
Selected comments:

desertweed calls the proposed replacements "truly pathetic", and feels the international architects are "Losers. Every single one of them."

surlyscot wonders if it wouldn't " be a better idea to turn it over to the local kindergarten kids and give them a crack at it."

SC hague: (in one of several posts) "Larger-than-life narcissist architects' desires to use Manhattan as their canvas for personal enshrinement should be embarrased (sic) by their shameless and useless proposals."

thirduncle0 offers to " paint a target on [his] ass and occupy the top floor"

planetcast1 asks "has the computer revolution gone to the heads of some architects? Just because CAD programs can output these multi-faceted arching, obtusely angled, mathematically twisted shapes and volumes, does not make the work necessarily effective nor 'modern'."

mrous: "Gaudy, cold, oppressive, and overbearing"

mikeny4: "The proposals are so ugly and wrong for NY that I cannot begin to comment. " (followed by 4 paragraphs of comments)

and kelleypb0, in perhaps the most apropos post of the forum, notes "Most of what I ever bought from Century 21 was crap."
