Out For Justice With “Deputy” Steven Seagal

News from today’s Guardian about everyone’s favorite Buddhist ass-kicker.  In a life-imitating-art-imitating-life twist of M?ɬ?bius dimensions, brace yourself for Steven Seagal: Lawman.  Apparently, the ponytailed one’s been flying under the radar in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, these past 20 years as a genuine deputy sheriff.  And now, with Lawman, we can all ride shotgun as he responds to “crimes-in-progress.”

As Seagal himself asserts in the accompanying clip, “This is not a joke.  This is real police officers down here, in life-and-death situations.”  I’ll wait and see, though, if he’ll be resolving those situations with just his “gaze and his gestures.”

 
In the Guardian UK: Steven Seagal: Lawman.  Does it get any better?

Here’s an interesting tower located in Beijing fashioned from 28,000 decaying human teeth. Has the identity of The Tooth Fairy been revealed?

Ricky Gervais’ Seona Dancing

Ricky Gervais has brought and continues to bring major joy to all of us here at Dangerous Minds.  I’m happy to report the same goes for his past as well.  Seona Dancing, his mostly ignored ‘80s new wave group, might have found more success in the Philippines than in England, but perhaps that was a lucky career stroke.  Failure, humiliation, the crushing of expectations—welcome to the world, David Brent!

Get A Room You Chew: Candy Wrapper Porn

A DAD last night blasted a sweet firm over fruity characters on wrappers who look like they are having sex. Haribo’s MAOAM sour candy uses illustrations of lemons, limes and cherries.

But Simon Simpkins was shocked at the “porno” poses when he bought the sweets for his kids Benjamin and Ofelia.

Mr Simpkins of Pontefract, West Yorks, said: “The lemon and lime are locked in what appears to be a carnal encounter. The lime, who I assume to be the gentleman in this coupling, has a particularly lurid expression on his face.

‘I demanded to see the shop manager and, during a heated exchange, my wife became quite distressed and had to sit down in the car park.’

Haribo said the “fun” packaging was introduced in Germany in 2002. They added: ‘The jovial MAOAM man is very popular with fans, both young and old.’

Dad’s outrage at sweet wrapper “porn”

Jayson Blair: From Liar To Life Coach

I was shocked, then, as these things go, shocked not at all to learn that Jayson Blair, ex-fabricator for the NYT, has repositioned himself as a “life coach!”  Blair was part of that Bush-era wave of truth-benders that included, among others, the Times’ Judith Miller and Oprah whipping boy James Frey

In his four years at the Times, Blair wrote nearly 600 articles about the war in Iraq, many of them factually suspect or, worse, distorted by design.  Well, who better to handle your “career crisis” than someone like that?!   Oh, and Blair’s also able to guide you through the choppy waters of substance abuse and bipolar disorder!  Blair’s website makes no mention of his past misdeeds, but there’s no mistaking his still-evident talents as a writer:

I firmly believe in harnesses the beautiful things about mental illness—whether its creativity and depth, or energy and daydreaming—so that the client can live a safe and healthy life without giving up the things that make them unique.

From the NYT: Times Reporter Who Resigned Leaves Long Trail of Deception

In Slate: Blair, Bliar
