Thursday Night Fights is pretty brutal, a phrase that in this case refers to ugly design rather than boxing savagery. The site devotes relatively little space to the pugilists, instead showcasing the "ringirls," who in turn disappear into backdrops that look like psychedelic screen savers squished on microscope slides. The archived programs break down thusly: Sponsor logos in assorted obnoxious fonts (25 percent); ring girls in Budweiser bikinis (55 percent); tiny listings of the actual competitors (20 percent). Thursday Night Fights doesn't use captions to identify the combatants featured in the scattered action photos, but I've taken a few guesses using real listed names.

Ace "Pot Smoking, Beer Drinking Country Boy" Lee vs. Will "Will-Da-Beast" Platzek. Daniel "The Kenai Bear" Rogers vs. James "The Neurotic Gerbil" Betts.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
