Random Links: More Chocolate Bunnies, Please Edition
It's Good Friday and Easter is but two days away. That means it's time to celebrate the resurrection of (some people's) Lord and Savior with colored eggs and chocolate shaped like shiny, happy, anthropomorphic rabbits. Why? Well, didn't you catch this week's episode of South Park? It explains it all for you.
Anyway, since it's Friday, here's another round of random links:
The Beasite Boys may or may not be performing at a private Wieden+Kennedy function tonight over on N. Mississippi. If 50 Cent really played a gig at a Bat Mitzvah in 2005, I can believe it.
Is "My Sweet Lord" really that much more offensive than the chocolate crosses you can find for sale in every, single grocery store in this country right now for $2? Nope. At least no one was planning on eating that anatomically-correct choco-Jesus in NYC. Plus, aren't Christian into that whole "eating the body of Christ" thing? One believer's piece of stale bread is another's candy messiah.
Would I visit a 7-11 temporarily converted into a Kwik-E-Mart that sells products featured on The Simpsons? For the opportunity to double-fist a Squishee and a can of Duff Beer? You bet I would! If Oregon doesn't land the movie premiere, the least Fox and 7-11 can do is toss us a Kwik-E-Mart or two.

Even if Keith Richards didn't snort his father's ashes, we're going to be hearing about it for years. Does this top the Led Zeppelin/Seattle/mud shark incident? Eh....ummmm....hmmmm....no? Regardless, I think this is the last urban legend we're going to get out of the giants of '70s rock. Thanks, Keith!
$3.00 or more for a gallon of gas? Again? Didn't we drop billions in Irag so we could avoid this sort of thing? Booooo!
Five years ago, Damon Stoudamire and Rasheed Wallace recorded a "Rip City Rhapsody"-esque track back when the Blazers still had a shot at making the playoffs. I did not know that. Click here to listen.
Oregon has an official state Easter Egg and it's on display at the White House? I didn't know that either.
The War on Easter ended sometime last year. Or at least its blog hasn't been updated since then. Whew. On the other hand, the fliers could still be circulating...
