Amazing, these ripple effects.

fifteen years old plus one, hotter than a microwave oven

Curious George is rapidly becoming one of my favorite TV shows. (5:00 on PBS.) It's unbearably cute, and the narrator is fantastic. (Edited to add: Can I spot talent, or what? Apparently William H. Macy narrates. Solid.) And in the episode today, George went to a recycling center where there was all kinds of weird crap, including a huge stuffed banana. And he had a little daydream that he strung it up to a couple of poles and had a nap on it. It was a banana hammock.

Tell me the animators didn't do that on purpose. Just try.

i'm in love, but i'm lazy, so won't you;

The Nickelback powerhouse rolls on

Not everybody wants to sit and listen to Nickelback — mainly, most critics. Ever since the release of 2001's six-times platinum "Silver Side Up," they've gotten routine drubbings from music journalists and others who deride their radio-friendly, soaring rock songs as unoriginal, insipid or, perhaps of the worst all, Creed-like.

The AP knows where it's at. Emphasis mine.
