bewaring is a real word!, DEVO, Et tu Brute?, Google Maps, Ides of March, Julius Caesar, malt liquor, March Madness, Mexico, New Mexico, St. Ides, there's a NEW Mexico?
The Ides of March
On which we celebrate America’s perverse and persistent predilection for unproductive pastimes, and the gazillions of work hours lost to the inanity (you’ll note we didn’t say insanity) of March Madness.
The plethora of information available through the internet never ceases to amaze us. Using Google Maps to view the floor plan of a house owned by the parents of a young lady whom he’s stalking, Smaktakula recently made a fascinating discovery. Apparently, there’s now a NEW Mexico. We couldn’t be more pleased, as the idea was long overdue–let’s just hope that they take better care of it this time.
Our Madness Explained (Kinda) or Why We Are So Devolved
The effervescent, complex bouquet that is Promethean Times can’t be explained by anything so simple as a music video. But if it could, this would be the video:
So maybe that explains a lot, or perhaps you’re still in the dark.
“Perhaps you’re still in the dark.” You got that right. I haven’t seen the light since I started following your mind-altering blog. I think that is a compliment, but judge for yourself.
We’ve been known to take ‘You disgust me’ as a compliment, so hell yeah, we’ll take yours in a positive light. Thanks! And sometimes, it’s good to be in the dark a little. It keeps some of the mystery in life.

HOLY CRAP – Devo got old! I knew they were touring, I just didn’t realize it was the Seniors tour.
Fun useless fact – the ides are not always the fifteenth of each month.
That is a fun fact. But useless? Facts are only useless until they’re needed. Suppose you get kidnapped by one of those crazy Batman-type villains who are so fucking crazy that they set up unnecessarily-elaborate death traps. And just as you’re about to be dunked into the shark tank or whatever, he says, “Because I’m a sporting guy, Guap Avenger, I’ll let you go if you can answer this one yes or no question for me. Think carefully now–does the Ides of March ALWAYS fall on March 15th?”
If you’re in that situation, you won’t think it’s so useless.

Yeow, indeed! There are some things which should not be done again.
I am, however, happy to find out that Mexico’s been given another chance…buena suerte, let’s hope they make better use of the opportunity than England or Orleans.
The 2.0 editions of England and Orleans are excellent examples of failure. But what about Coke and the Kids on the Block?
