Jack's Mannequin

alright, concert is tonight, got the interview done, will post that later when i actually have it in an mp3 or wav format. for the time being its stuck on the recorder.

it was a nerve racking experience interviewing mr. andrew mcmahon and having to carefully pick and choose what you asked because you never know what someone might find a bit uncomfortable so with that in mind i had to word what i asked very carefully.

andrew was actually a real cool guy who couldn't stop smiling. i think he likes to talk and that's fine, so tune in wednesday for the interview, if you miss it, maybe i'll post it for you to hear, if not make sure you listen

sorry bout the posting of shows not being there


so i've been falling behind when it comes to posting up the playlist for the week the past two weeks or so since well it's more or less just stress at the time but at the end of the semester the entire fourth season will be available for download for free from Kyle and Tim Inc

media assignment stuff that is stuff like

After sitting back and learning about all the advertising fun we could have in class I took the time the other day to make hasteful note of all the beautiful ads I encountered during a regular day for me. Shockingly it wasn't as much as i thought, but then again I probably didn't count some of them. We are bombarded by ads every day, in every facet. Your very T-Shirt is considered an ad suggesting that we listen to that band or buy that beer or watch that movie. It's nothing short to suggest that that should count? But alas for the sake of my sanity I didn't count it!

The first batch of ads I encountered was on the campus bus. I am like a sloth, lazy and unmovable, which is why I was taking the bus. Slathered all on the ceiling of the bus was ads for intown places such as Camillos. I really didn't think much of it as I take the bus everyday about twice a day so I'm used to it. Personally I just find it funny that they even bother trying to reach poor kids like us.

Later that day when I got some time to log onto the world wide web that was brought to us by Al Gore I was bombarded with ads all over the place. Facebook seems to be stalking me in the non virtual world as the ads on the side bar all were for products or things that really would interest me. "Want to watch Boston Red Sox games online?" Hell yeah I do...oh wait, shit why did i click on that? (I didn't click) There were ads there for the silliest things, "Single? Want to mingle? Males 21+", um do you think I'm that desperate Facebook? They refused to comment on that.

Checking the baseball scores on MLB's own website to see if my beloved Red Sox won I get a pop up ad for NetFlix. I don't know why I, a baseball fan, give a damn about NetFlix. Later as i navigate the site there are ads for buying baseball merchandise and cable. CABLE! WOAH! That's new to me, do I want to buy my own cable?

After viewing all these ads, I realized that wow, this is just disturbing. I was too freaked out because I had to pay attention to even watch the television that night. I just went back to my room shut off the computer and turned on the PlayStation 3 and let that wipe my mind clean of this madness.

It's A Trap

article from

Will a "Star Wars" character be the new Ole Miss mascot? Admiral Ackbar commanded the Rebel Alliance Fleet in "Return of the Jedi."

Not if some Rebel fans get their way.

On Tuesday, Ole Miss students voted to find a new mascot to replace the abandoned Colonel Reb. A student committee will soon form to develop and propose a new mascot.

Admiral Ackbar, a member of the Mon Calamari species who led the Rebel Alliance ships into the Battle of Endor, appears to be the early favorite. He has more than 14,000 Facebook fans. Websites like -- "It's a trap!" was his famous line -- are promoting Ackbar's candidacy.

But members of the Ackbar alliance have taken some incoming fire. Angry students have contacted them and threatened to transfer if the alien rebel becomes the new face of Ole Miss, his supporters told the entertainment Web site TMZ.

The group even heard from parents of current and prospective students -- with some threatening to "never send their kids to Ole Miss" if the Admiral wins out, TMZ reported.

The folks at have soldiered on: "Who wants a Colonel when you could have an Admiral?" the Web site asks, before launching into "The Story of Ole Miss Ackbar."

"A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away ... Admiral Ackbar received a deep space transmission of SEC coverage. He found that he couldn't stop watching everything from football to volleyball. One team stood out to him, the Ole Miss Rebels. He led the Galactic Rebellion, and he knew he needed to be with the Ole Miss Rebels. And so, he started the long trek to Oxford, Miss."

The Colonel, who served as the official mascot for 24 years, was discontinued in 2003 when school officials decided his image was a bit too Old South and might offend some minorities.

The character still appears at pregame tailgating festivities on the Ole Miss campus, but he has no official role with the school.

It's unclear when an official decision will be made.

my thoughts are holy shit admiral ackbar as a college mascot! its real awesome. the pros, ADMIRAL FUCKING ACKBAR, cons its kind of a slap to the face of the school to have him be a mascot, i mean it's kinda stupid how people are reacting to this whole situation. i think the fact that people have threatened not to go to the school over this have to be the dumbest people in the world

i support this
