I'm surfing the web with the tube on Paladium HD, Pearl Jam's Storytellers just ended--great episode. During a commercial break, a commercial comes on for Rosetta Stone Language Learning.
Anyway, during the commercial, the voiceover explains that Rosetta Stone is so good, its used by the State Department and the Department of Defense.
Where the hell do they get off giving away state secrets, huh? Go ahead, RosettaStone. Why don't you just give the terrorists an easy link where they can learn our sophisticated intelligence gathering techniques.
Where are all the Country First folks on this?
BTW, did you know Vedder wrote Betterman when he was like 18 and just had the song sitting there for like 4 years before he broke it out and showed it to the band. How crazy is that. It may be the best crowd participation song of the last 2 decades. Check it below and understand why Eddie commented after during their Lollapolluza gig , "F*cking beautiful, man."
I am a bold figure, often seen powerwalking and crushing cans. I have been known to rock a microphone. I translate American Idol for enemy noncombatants. I routinely manage to infurriate DC Metro service personel. I woo women with my impressive name-dropping and my astounding ability at butterbean shelling.
When I'm bored, I take a case of wine over to my friend's house and get introduced to all the Puerto Rican girls who are dying to meet me.
I am a logical negativist who has propounded a set of laws that the world ignores, to its detriment.
I am an expert in Post-Civil War Reconstruction, a veteran of Greenwood Baseball, and an outlaw in Murrell's Inlet.
I once built a perpetual motion machine with Steve Roberts. I make homemade Sprite. I have been and remain on double secret probation.
The Russians call me "Vilnius Nastavic," because I require but one ping. I used to handle black ops for the United States Postal Service. I helped open Dog One and have doctored flight logs for rising 5-star colonels.
I have driven from Texarkana to Atlanta in 28 hours. I had no fatalities during my brief career on the safety patrol.
