Bull charges bullfight spectator

At least two people are being treated in hospital in Mexico City after a bull leapt into a crowd during a bullfight.

The half-ton bull - named Pajarito or Little Bird - breached the safety barrier and landed on the fans.

The rampage ended when a fight participant entered the stand and killed the animal with his sword.

Mexico City's bullring was built 60 years ago and is one of the biggest in the world, with a capacity of 48,000.

Television images of the bullfight showed the beast jump over the heads of journalists and into the most expensive seats at the capital's vast ring.

One woman spectator received a six-inch (15-cm) gash in her chest.

The bullfight resumed 30 minutes after the incident. Little Bird is the first bull in the ring's history to jump into the crowd.

Dominatrix acquitted in client's death

DEDHAM, Massachusetts -- A dominatrix was acquitted of manslaughter Monday in the death of a man who prosecutors say suffered a heart attack while strapped to a replica of a medieval rack.

Barbara Asher, a 56-year-old woman who called herself Mistress Lauren M, was also cleared of dismembering the man's corpse to conceal the death.

Prosecutors said that 53-year-old Michael Lord suffered a heart attack in 2000 during a bondage session in a "dungeon" in Asher's condominium.

Asher was accused of doing nothing to help him for five minutes, fearing authorities would discovery her business.

Asher had her boyfriend chop up the body of the 275-pound retired telephone company worker, and they dumped it behind a restaurant in Maine, prosecutors said.

His remains have never been found.

Prosecutors said Asher confessed to police, but the alleged confession was not taped.

Investigators testified they did not save their notes.

Asher's lawyer, Stephanie Page, said there was nothing to prove Lord was even dead -- no body, no blood, no DNA.

During his closing argument to the jury, prosecutor Robert Nelson put on a black leather mask with a zippered mouth opening and re-enacted the bondage session.

With both hands, he reached back and clutched the top of a blackboard as if strapped to the rack. Then he hung his head as if dead.

Asher's lawyer objected, and the judge agreed.

"That's enough Mr. Nelson," Judge Charles Grabau said. "Thank you for your demonstration."

Peristaltic Action by Michelle Hines

To quote John Waters (2003): “I love work that can horrify me in a new witty way. I have the opposite of contempt for art: I want to see art which causes contempt. If it’s good art, contempt turns into love.”

"Peristaltic Action" by Michelle Hines:

And the accompanying text: “In February 1995, working in conjunction with nutritionists at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, I adopted a super fiber-rich diet which allowed me to successfully produce a single extruded excrement the exact length of my colon: 26 feet.

I documented the extrusion at the Cranbrook-Kingswood High School Bowling Alley, Bloomfield Hills, MI, which offered a length of floor suitable for the process and measuring the results.

The cathartic diet was supplemented by a high intake of Metamucil fiber substance. The weeklong endurance prior to the event was ensured by the employment of a plug specifically designed to curtail any premature excretions.”

Homeland Security addicted to porn

[To keep you safe, your War On Terror pals both produce and enjoy porn]

Homeland Security bureaucrats just look at pornography all day, a startling new government report suggests.

The terror bureaucracy’s internal computer network logged a staggering 65 million security alerts in just 90 days, according to the study (PDF) released today by Homeland Security Department inspector general Dick Skinner.

The DHS computer network is such an ineptly run mess that it's unknown how many of those 65 million porn alarms are really caused by Homeland Security employees looking at naked pictures.

An expensive network of programs are used to constantly spy on all employee computers, but it all works so poorly that nobody can tell the difference between one cubicle drone looking for "oral sex" pictures or another typing the word "behavioral," Washington Technology reported today.

What is known for sure is that porn alarms are going off at an explosive rate.

In July 2004, for example, the DHS network was logging 5.4 million "security events" per month. Less than a year later, when Inspector Skinner collected information for his investigation, that number had skyrocketed to 21.6 million per month.

The report concludes that Homeland Security has a laughably vulnerable computer network that is pounded by a steady stream of virus and hacker attacks while DHS employees engage in highly unprofessional and dangerous computer activities.

It's just the latest embarrassing scandal for the bloated federal agency. Earlier this month, former attorney general John Ashcroft was caught chasing lucrative Homeland Security contracts for his business clients.

The gold standard of Homeland Security corruption remains GOP Congressman Roy Blunt's incredible stunt of 2003, when he was caught trying to sneak "tobacco-friendly language" into a Homeland Security bill while he was having sex with a lobbyist from tobacco giant Phillip Morris.

Sexy hijacker strikes again

MELBOURNE'S train temptress has struck again.

However police and rail officials have met to plan an end to her saucy crime spree.

The woman broke into a cabin on a peak-hour Frankston train on Tuesday night and broadcast X-rated praise of the driver to stunned commuters.

The husky-voiced intruder is believed to be the serial seductress behind a similar break-in and announcement on the Sandringham line last week.

The trespasser evaded capture by authorities on both occasions.

As her break-in broadcasts become more frequent, longer and more detailed, pressure is building for Connex to catch the profane prankster before more commuters are subject to her sexy speeches.

"There was a woman on the address system. It was very graphic about how she was going to have sex with a driver for about three minutes," said Angela, a passenger on the Frankston-bound train.

"I thought she was in cahoots with the driver."

Angela said there were families on board unhappy their children were exposed to the content.

Passengers on the trains during both incidents believed the woman was in the cabin with the driver or was a voice on a 1900 sex call.

The broadcasts are now thought to be the work of a lone female hijacking the PA system in vacant train cabins.

Police are scanning CCTV footage from stations to identify her.

Ticket inspectors have been briefed to be on the lookout for the woman.

"When the train comes to a stop at a station it is easy for them to slip out of the cab and merge with other passengers," said Connex spokesman Andrew Cassidy said.

Connex yesterday discussed the incidents with Transit Safety Division officers.

Connex has said some people are aware of a weakness that allows them to force their way into vacant cabins and hijack the PA.

They said the flaw would be fixed this year.

Feminal? huh?

Ladies...presenting the Feminal, the portable urinal for women. Because when nature calls and you're stuck in traffic or find yourselves miles from a rest stop during a road trip, well...you'd be out of luck if you didn't have the handy Feminal with you. The unique opening creates a sort of suction-like, leak-proof seal when pressed up against your body and can be used sitting, reclining or standing up (though it sounds like you'd have to master some of these tricky positions). And props to the ad team that decided to add that rose to the product shot. Very feminine indeed.

Tune Belt for Ipod

There is no shortage of wearable iPod cases, including ones incorporated into belts, but the TuneBuckle miraculously manages to look non-geeky enough to actually wear. It's made for the Nano, which is small and thin enough to pass as a normal belt buckle. The key here is that iPod or no iPod, it's a nice belt, made with quality leather and metal, not the glittery spangly plastic or cheap stretch fabric that most wearable cases are stuck onto. Alright, it's still quite geeky, but you'd have to get up fairly close to realize that. Looks like sturdy protection for your iPod too. TuneBuckle is available for pre-order for $49.95, in black or white, but sizes start at 30". Waifs will have to wear their Nano at the hip.

Lunar New Year: French animal lovers howl at Chinese dog slaughter

France's Society for the Protection of Animals (SPA) appealed to Chinese President Hu Jintao to put an end to the cruel slaughter of dogs, which it blasted as an affront.

"The SPA does not set itself up as a judge of a country and its culture, but is asking for animals to be killed in a dignified way," the SPA said.

"Millions of dogs (in China) are hanged, beaten with sticks and butchered while they are still alive," it said in a press release.

The organisation added that it had tried to get French media to accept an advertisement as part of its campaign against dog butchering, but the picture -- of an animal being cut to pieces in a pool of blood -- was so graphic that it had been rejected by every newspaper.

The upcoming Chinese New Year on Sunday ushers in the Year of the Dog.

Up to 10 million dogs are slaughtered every year in China, many killed slowly and cruelly to supposedly enhance the meat's flavour, according to animal rights groups.

Happy 250th Birthday Mozart

A Guide for Where to Start With Mozart

A wonderful sound to have on your CD-alarm clock is the G-minor symphony, No. 40. There are many good choices, from conductor Bruno Walter's versions with the New York Philharmonic and the Columbia Symphony Orchestra to a well-regarded recording by Leonard Bernstein with the Vienna Philharmonic on DG.

"Don Giovanni" was the greatest romancer of them all. There is his mandolin aria "Deh, vieni alla finestra" ("Please, come to the window, oh my treasure") or the catalogue aria on the Don's conquests by Leporello, "Madamina, il catalogo e questo" ("My dear lady, this is a list"). Bryn Terfel gives spirited renditions on DG's "Bryn Terfel: Opera Arias" with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and James Levine.

Guaranteed to put a smile on a child's face is "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" ("A Little Night Music"). The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, known for its light, crisp versions, released a 1985 recording on DG that is full of sunshine.

A DVD of the Requiem, his final composition, and the Mass in C Minor has just been released by Philips. The 1991 performance at the beautiful Palau de la Musica Catalana in Barcelona, Spain, features conductor John Eliot Gardiner leading Barbara Bonney, Anne Sofie von Otter, Anthony Rolfe Johnson and Alastair Miles, with the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists.

"Le Nozze di Figaro" ("The Marriage of Figaro") has many of Mozart's most brilliant tunes. There's no shortage of top contenders, including the 1955 Decca with Erich Kleiber conducting Cesare Sieppi, Hilda Gueden, Alfred Poell, Lisa della Casa and Suzanne Danco; and the 2003 Harmonia Mundi, with Rene Jacobs conducting Lorenzo Regazzo, Patrizia Ciofi, Simon Keenlyside, Veronique Gens and Angelika Kirchschlager. Until it is released commercially, the 1998 Metropolitan Opera version is only available from those who recorded the PBS telecast - it has James Levine conducting Bryn Terfel, Cecilia Bartoli, Dwayne Croft, Renee Fleming and Susanne Mentzer, and features the alternative arias "Un moto di gioia" and "Al desio di chi t'adora" in place of "Venite inginocchiatevi" and "Deh vieni." A quirky modernized version set in Trump Tower was staged by Peter Sellars and was released on a Decca DVD last year. For those desiring a couple of excerpts, try Fleming's "Signatures" on Decca, which features her flowing versions of "Porgi, armor" and "Dove sono" with Sir Georg Solti conducting the London Symphony Orchestra.

Carlos Kleiber, the famed conductor who died in 2004, led orchestras in just two Mozart works during the latter half of his life, No. 33 in B-flat major and No. 36 in E-minor ("Linz"). His rendition of the 33rd with the Bavarian State Opera Orchestra at Munich's Herkulessaal on Oct. 21, 1996, was recorded by television cameras and was released on a DVD last year by DG. The music has a silken sheen, and his conducting has the grace of ballet.

Natalie Dessay, the noted coloratura soprano, set off fireworks as the Queen of the Night in "Die Zauberfloete" ("The Magic Flute"). Versions appear on a Virgin Classics solo recording with Louis Langree leading the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and an Erato complete recording of the opera with William Christie conducting Les Arts Florissants. Diana Damrau is fierce in a BBC/Opus Arte DVD of a 2003 performance conducted by Colin Davis at the Royal Opera House in London

Mozart composed more operas than "Die Zauberfloete" and the three famous collaborations with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte: "Le Nozze di Figaro,""Cosi fan tutte" and "Don Giovanni." He wrote 22 stage works, and all will be presented this summer at the Salzburg Festival in Austria. There is the semi-seria "Die Entfuehrung aus dem Serail" ("The Abduction from the Seraglio"); the seria "Idomeneo" and "La Clemenza di Tito" ("The Clemency of Tito"); and the buffa "Mitradate." Some categorize "Entfuehrung" as a singspiel, as is "Zauberfloete."

A little humor...

A single guy decides life would be more fun if he had a pet. He went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.

After some discussion, he finally bought a centipede, (100-legged bug), It came in a little white box to use for his house. He took the box back home, found a good location for the box, and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to church with him.

So he asked the centipede in the box, "Would you like to go to church with me today, we will have a good time." But there was no answer from his new pet.

This bothered him a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked him again, "How about going to church with me and receive blessings." but again there was no answer from his new friend and pet.

So he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation. He decided to ask him one more
time; this time putting his face up against the centipede's house and Shouting, "Hey, in there! Would you like to go to church with me and learn about The Lord!"


A little voice came out of the box:..

"I heard you the first time! I'm putting on my shoes.

Madonna looking like SHIT !!!

Is the Queen of Pop's quest for eternal youth taking its toll?

SHE'S wowed the world for two decades - but even a fashion icon can have an off day.And when Madonna arrived in Paris yesterday looking decidedly less than glamorous, fears were raised that her relentless fitness regime may be taking its toll on her looks.

The 47-year-old's skin was stretched across razor-sharp cheekbones and her chin was puckered as she turned up for a Gaultier fashion show.A fellow guest said: "Madonna usually looks so groomed. It was a bit of a shock to see her looking so ropey."The mother-of-two exercises at least three hours a day, sometimes runs 10-miles, and eats mainly wholegrains and vegetables.

We remember 1987!

This weekend I was watching a video of Lt.Col. Oliver North testifying at the Iran-Contra hearings during the Reagan Administration.

There was Ollie in front of God and country getting the third degree, but what he said was facinating!

He was being drilled by a senator; "Did you not recently spend close to $60,000 for a home security system?" Ollie replied, "Yes, I did, Sir."

The senator continued, trying to get a laugh out of the audience, "Isn't that just a little excessive?"

"No, sir," continued Ollie. "No? And why not?" the senator asked. "Because the lives of my family and I were threatened, sir."

"Threatened? By whom?" the senator questioned.

"By a terrorist, sir" Ollie answered. "Terrorist? What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?"

"His name is Osama bin Laden, sir" Ollie replied.

At this point the senator tried to repeat the name, but couldn't pronounce it, which most people back then probably couldn't. A couple of people laughed at the attempt. Then the senator continued. Why are you so afraid of this man?" the senator asked.

"Because, sir, he is the most evil person alive that I know of", Ollie answered.

"And what do you recommend we do about him?" asked the senator. "Well, sir, if it was up to me, I would recommend that an assassin team be formed to eliminate him and his men from the face of the earth."

The senator disagreed with this approach.

FYI, that senator was Al Gore.

A year after Ollie testified I had the pleasure of meeting him while he was on a book tour, after standing in line for a rather long time with some of the strangest RIGHT WING NUTS I came face to face with Ollie, he looked up at me and said " WHY ARE YOU HERE?" I answered.

"Pretty funny huh?", to which he replied ya, the sort of people who come to see me, well, THEY AREN'T YOU" and he smiled, apparently he can spot a liberal a mile away, or maybe the tye-dye shirt gave me away...

Our exchange continued, Ollie then repeated his original question, to which I answered , "you and I are politically as far apart as 2 people could probably be", he agreed, "but I have no issue with my tax dollars being spent on a security system for your home Ollie... That was political bullshit", Ollie then stood up (his security detail moved closer), he put his hand out, we shook hands and he thanked me for understanding....the end...

Man lifts 14 bricks with his "horn"

A Chinese pensioner can lift up to 14 bricks with a 'horn' that's grown on his forehead.
Wang Ying, 73, has been practicing Kung Fu, especially the study of Qi, since he was just eight-years-old.

But his studies took a new direction after a 5cm long tumour grew on his forehead. Doctors told him they could not operate on the tumour because of its location, so Wang has incorporated it into his Qi routine.
He lives in a farm in Pei County, Jiangsu Province, and walked for 18 days to Nanjing to show off his stunt.

Shatner Sells Kidney Stone for 25k.

An online casino has a piece of Capt. Kirk. Actor William Shatner has sold his kidney stone for $25,000, with the money going to a housing charity, it was announced Tuesday. Shatner reached agreement Monday to sell the stone to GoldenPalace.com.

"This takes organ donors to a new height, to a new low, maybe. How much is a piece of me worth?" he said in a telephone interview.

GoldenPalace.com is noted for its collection of oddities, which includes a partially eaten cheese sandwich thought to contain the image of the Virgin Mary.

"This is a bold new addition to our fleet," GoldenPalace.com Chief Executive Officer Richard Rowe said in a statement.

The money will go to Habitat for Humanity, which builds houses for the needy.
"This would be the first Habitat for Humanity house built out of stone," joked Darren Julien, president of Los Angeles-based Julien's Auctions, which handled the sale.

Shatner, who played Kirk on the original "Star Trek" TV show and won an Emmy for his role on "Boston Legal," passed the stone last fall.

The stone was so big, Shatner said, "you'd want to wear it on your finger."

"If you subjected it to extreme heat, it might turn out to be a diamond," he added.

Shatner said the idea of selling the stone came up after "Boston Legal" raised $20,000 for Habitat for Humanity. With the money for the stone, Shatner said there is about enough funding to build half a house.

GoldenPalace.com originally offered $15,000 for the stone but Shatner turned it down, noting that his "Star Trek" tunics have commanded more than $100,000. His counteroffer was accepted.

Planned Parenthood's new condom key chains 'blasphemous'

Parenthood has launched a line of condom key chains -- key chains that offend "just about everyone in the country," claims Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League's STOPP International. "Some are even blasphemous."The condom key chains, featuring 28 different designs, are offered for sale on Planned Parenthood of Connecticut's web site.

Each chain has a picture or slogan on a plastic holder containing a latex condom."Planned Parenthood offends religious people with its key chain that shows a portion of the famous painting from the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo gave us a beautiful image of Adam stretching out his hand to God, with God's index finger about to touch Adam's index finger," said Sedlak. "In Planned Parenthood's blasphemous version, God is handing Adam a condom."Planned Parenthood goes on to offend parents with its key chain that shows a caricature of a loudly crying baby," said Sedlak.

"Planned Parenthood's slogan accompanying the caricature states, 'Condoms are cheaper than diapers.'In addition, Sedlak said Planned Parenthood offends all patriotic Americans with a series of three key chains. "The first is a takeoff of the famous 'Uncle Sam Wants You' poster from World War II ­ in Planned Parenthood's version Uncle Sam is replaced with a condom saying 'I Want You.' The second is an American flag picture with the stars in the field of blue replaced with the words, 'Wear with Pride.' The third is a picture of the Statue of Liberty holding a condom instead of a torch.

"Other condom key chains show just how much sex permeates all Planned Parenthood thinking. There's one that says, "Earth and condoms, we can't live without them."

A&E Tells Us Whats in Development

"Gene Simmons Family Jewels," featuring Simmons; his partner, Shannon Tweed' Shannon Tweed, a former Playmate of the Year, actress and model; and their kids, Nick and Sophie. Dubuc described the kids as "articulate, funny and bright," which contrasts with their "wild and crazy" parents.

Web Site Offering Farrell Sex Tape Closed

An Internet site that purported to be selling access to actor Colin Farrell's explicit sex tape was shut down Tuesday for violating a court order blocking release of the 15-minute video, the actor's publicist said.

The Web site, dirtycolin.com, could not be accessed Tuesday night but at least one other Web site offered what appeared to be censored stills from the tape of Farrell engaging in sex acts with his then-girlfriend, Nicole Narain.

The stills were posted on the Web site idontlikeyouinthatway, which reported that dirtycolin.com had stated: "Colin tried to stop us from showing you this. Well, here it is anyways."

"A Web site attempting to distribute an unauthorized tape of Colin Farrell was shut down today. Mr. Farrell will take legal action against anyone who tries to distribute this tape," said a statement issued by Farrell publicist Danica Smith.

The statement did not say who had shut down the site. Farrell sued Narain last year, accusing her of trying to distribute the tape through an intermediary. A lawyer for Narain -- Playboy's Miss January 2002 -- has said she never tried to profit from the tape.

Farrell argued that the tape was made more than two years ago on the understanding that it never would be made public and releasing it would harm his career. A Superior Court judge in Los Angeles has issued an order temporarily barring the sale, distribution or display of the tape.
