Dead President Quote of the Week! And More!

Maybe this should be like the Dead President Quote of Two or Three Weeks, since I sort of dropped the ball on my one supposedly regular feature. Oh, yeah, baby. JFK. Arguably America's most attractive President (although I have yet to meet anyone willing to argue that point). He's got classic quotes in spades, but I really like this one:

"Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth. "

Also, Wesntia linked to this fabulous editorial in the comments section and I feel the need to pimp it. I am so pissed by this whole "blame Clinton for 9/11" bullshit. I'm officially Blacklisting the entire ABC television network for cashing in on the 5-year anniversary of September 11 with their conservatively-charged made-for-TV "dramatization" and hereby inserting this preposterous notion into the public's consciousness. The seeds sown there led directly to the charges Clinton answered last Sunday on Fox. Bush has yet to say anything worth hearing on the matter. There are a lot of people to blame, but somehow, as has become a noticeable trend these past 6 years, the ones who should be held accountable never are.

WTF Moments in Local Editorials!

Honestly? Do I really need to respond to this one? This is one of those things that you read and you just think, "What the fuck?" Because seriously. I don't even know what the hell he's talking about.

Jesus, it's been over a week!!

I am disgusted with myself. Disgusted, I tell you! This has never happened before in all of O.P. history. But I haven't really been that mad about overpopulation and oil prices (dropping as elections draw nearer, I see; who would have predicted? Oh, ME!) and Republicans as much these past few days because I've been in the process of moving and there are times when plotting the perfect place for your Brokeback Mountain movie poster is more important than the fate of the world. I'm sure you understand. Actually, I've been shirking pretty much all of my duties this week. I don't know what's wrong with me.

And I don't even really have an excuse for this post aside from my overwhelming guilt towards a readership that doesn't actually exist. Also, Bill Clinton was on "The Daily Show" earlier this week and that was kinda cool. Check it out.

Today in Upcoming Movies You Aren't the Least Bit Surprised I'm Excited About

The U.S. vs. John Lennon! Visit the official site. They're not helping me out on the promotional material front, so you'll just have to do with this poster which has been in heavy rotation since 1969. Still packs a punch.And, of course, the trailer.
Although, eh, not so much a fan of Yoko or Geraldo Rivera. But the rest of it looks brilliant!

How is it even possible...

...that a baby can have as much hair as Suri Cruise does? I have never seen a baby with that much hair. Anyway, it's not news (OMG, that's sooo two days ago!) but I just had to bring up the fact that my favorite Blacklisted couple has done it again! Making news simply because they reproduced! Amazing!

Check out that cover shot. Look familiar? Well, if you're me or Matt it should, since Annie Leibowitz took the liberty of copying the back cover shot of McCartney, Paul's first solo album. I must say that Suri is doing a much better job impersonating Mary McCartney than Tom is Paul.

This post was brought to you by the words "and sometimes celebrity babies" on the banner. Thank you, and you may now continue with your day.

Dead President Quote of the Week!

Check out how awesome I am: I now have a soundtrack for this blog. A soundtrack of one highly-appropriate song that I've wanted to put up here for a million and a half years but never did until yesterday. It's towards the bottom of the right sidebar and I would highly suggest hitting "play" and then sitting back and enjoying the perfection of the O.P. experience. It's one of my all-time favorites AND it's called "Too Many People." AND this is an OVERPOPULATION blog. No. I know. I'm a genius. You don't have to tell me.

("Too Many People" is the first track off of Paul McCartney's 1971 solo offering, "Ram," one of the great unappreciated records of our time. You really should buy yourself a copy if you want to live a happy and fulfilled life.)

Anyway, let's go back a bit... James K. Polk, America's 11th President! According to my 8th grade presidential report, as a child Polk "would hide in the barn and read or do arithmetic when he was supposed to be doing his chores." That may explain the origins of this quote.

"No president who performs his duties faithfully and conscientiously can have any leisure."
- James K. Polk

Aw, yeah, bitches. That's what I'm talking about. It never ceases to be enjoyable to find these old quotes that are custom-made insults for the current administration.
