Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

08/30/2004: Gem o'the Day:

From Mr. Roboto's real time blogging of the MTV Video Music awards:

7:43: The guy from B2K just said he was going to serenade some ladies, and I thought he said "semenate" them, which got me back in here from the kitchen.
Yep. That would have gotten me straight out of the kitchen. That would have probably had me running out of the bathroom, even if I hadn't quite finished what I'd started yet....

A few other choice lines from that post:
Ugh. Chaka Khan, Chaka Kan't Sing.


8:03: Say what you will about their politics, but the Bush twins are much hotter than the Kerry girls. Strangely, the crowd seems equally hostile to both sets. I wish the Kerry twins would shut up; they've been lecturing for like 5 minutes now. All the long intros and awards kill the show's momentum. It's all awkward and 2 minutes too long.
Random pedantry: are the Kerry girls twins? I don't recall that they are...
8:27: I haven't been watching, opting instead to fold clothes upstairs. That says all it needs to about how much fun the VMAs are.


8:36: All of Jessica Simpson's parts are very sexy individually, but, put together as a whole, I don't think she's sexy.

8:44: Tony Hawk. You're like 47. Go home.


9:23: Alicia Keys brings out Stevie Wonder and Lenny Kravitz. Uneventful. I am tired of this whole event. To make it worthwhile, here are some more pretty ladies from the event. If you were Hulk Hogan, would you let your 16 year old daughter dress up like a porn star. He would.

Mandy Moore is very pretty. I can't remember if she's a good singer. Does she still do music?
