Is Glenn Beck losing his edge?

Is Glenn Beck losing his edge? David Carr certainly thinks so (NYT link). While Beck's numbers are still high in comparison to his rivals, he's lost around a third of his viewership, primarily younger viewers. Fox is even thinking about life without Beck. [more inside]

I'm Lovin' It

"It's true that McD's hiring process and training is essentially getting you to breathe on a mirror, and, if it fogs up, you're in... but that doesn't mean we're all bad. Just that we're a mixed bag. A lot of the time, McDonalds is the only place that will hire teenagers or immigrants, regardless of their skills, especially in todays climate." McDonald's Talk [more inside]

"My name is Sean Kennedy, and I am The Fucking Man."

Sean Kennedy, Internet media personality and outspoken anti-"Corpolitical" survivalist, made a name for himself with his short rants on topics from suicide (mp3, nsfw) to body armor (mp3) to internet porn (mp3, nsfw).

No, you're wrong! No, YOU'RE wrong!!

If You're a Christian, Muslim or Jew - You are Wrong - A rant over at the Huffington Post.
And let's be clear about this, it IS a rant, and a beaut at that. But it's a sentiment that's run through the head of everyone who isn't a member of the three mentioned groups. No one in the mainstream media says things like this, I wonder why?
The post is made. Let the emphatic agreements, and the vicious denials... begin!

If Ed Anger had a son....

Rants. (Quicktime movies.) Meet Bob. He's pissed. I'm partial to his takes on the Cookie Monster, Vegas ads, the filthy media, Paris Hilton and lo carb OJ.

Your favorite band's website sucks

Your favorite band's website sucks. I can't count the number of times I've wanted to share a band's great new tracks with friends over email and had to give them detailed instructions on how to navigate the flash popup (ok, first click on the band's launch panel, then look in the popup for something marked "sounds" then click that and click the stream button...what? you don't have the latest flash?), or if I love a band's music, I can't seem to find their tour dates even though I know they're on the road. Merlin drops the five golden rules for bands that do too good of a job keeping their fans from their music.

Friday Timewaster

Have you ever pondered just how annoying Mick Hucknall is? and who you might consider to be more annoying than the Simply Red Frontman? Here's a chance to let off some steam with some bar room style rants about the most irritating celebs doing the circuit. There are some fairly obvious one's here and here and some threads that don't do much for Anglo-American relations here. A nice way to waste a Friday afternoon - provided you're not offended by the language

Canadian feminist delivers good third world rant.

Canadian feminist delivers good third world rant. Problem being that, the last time anyone checked, Canada was part of the First World. How far did she have to reach to find solidarity with the Taliban?
