Those of you on Internet Explorer, rejoice! We have fixed the sidebar so it stays put … on the side! Now you too can see when we don’t update the comic for a month, and listen to the radio show for 20 seconds before turning it off and saying “Wow, that really sucked”.

Okay, that’s really the last site related post. Next post will be about MMA, I swear. Or perhaps I’ll do a review of the Murphy Brown season 6 dvd I watched over the weekend. Hmm. Choices, choices.

Yes indeedy, after 5+ hours of tooling around with the site, things seem to be back to normal around here. Here’s a quick summary of all the big news we’ve missed over the past 4 days: NOTHING! Regardless, it’s good to be back. We’ve got a few more small things to deal with and then it’ll be back to business as usual. Thanks everyone for showing that you care by writing! I feel loved :-)

You really start to understand the problem with multiple promotions when you see bookings like this. Nick Diaz is coming off of a 6 month suspension for reefer madness. Nick Diaz is also coming off of a dominant dismantling of Takanori Gomi. And now Nick Diaz is back in the ring on September 15th, facing … some dude. Who? Mike Aina. Who? Yeah, exactly.

The only explanation possible for this total bullshit matchup is that Mike Aina must be the most popular guy in Hawaii. If he’s not Hawaii’s equivalent of the Fonz; if he’s not the dude at the pig roast everyone high fives; if he isn’t some kind of celebrity out there … if he’s not all these things, I’m gonna be pissed.

But the truth of the matter is Mike ain’t none of that shit … he’s just a fighter with a tenuously similar style to Diaz’s. Sam Caplan wants to believe that’ll make for an entertaining fight, and I’m right there with him. But the truth of the matter is that THE FIGHT JUST DOESN’T MATTER. We all know how this is going to end, and even if it is a good fight, so what? Why is a fighter like Nick Diaz fighting nobodies at this point in his career? What is his manager thinking to allow this kind of matchup to happen? Is there really no one else at 160 pounds around right now to put Nick in the ring with?

At this point, Nick Diaz could really use a bit of Frank Trigg’s ego when it comes to picking fights. He might just see this as an easy paycheck, but when you’re a fighter you only get so much time to make that money before you’re old and busted. Wasting your time with fights like this is just stupid.

Yesterday we shared a noxious bit of Youtubery in the form of a Nickelback video barely featuring Chuck Liddell. While I was busy lamenting the lack of good music videos with MMA fighters in them, our readership was busy proving me wrong like usual. You fucking jackals. This is my site! Why can’t you let me just say whatever dumb and factually incorrect thing I want to? I hate you guys.

Anyways, Intenso pointed me to this video by American Head Charge which features 2000% more Chuck than the previous Nickelback video. I’m not too sure about the music (I’m more of an Alanis Morissette kinda guy) but I do enjoy the idea of people getting in Chuck’s face all day long when he can’t do anything about it. Gotta love ‘the law’ … it keeps douches like me from getting assaulted all the time.

Just a little something I noticed in MSNBC’s foray into MMA journalism:

From October 1999 to the present, Henderson has not fought on American soil. He has built a reputation in Japan for fighting skills that enabled him to defeat Nogueira, Renzo Gracie, Murilo Rua, Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva among others.

Lets see … what’s wrong with that statement? What’s wrong? What did they say in there that could possibly be wrong? Hmmm … I don’t know … hmmm … is there even something wrong in there? I’m not so sure any more.

Oh wait.

DAN HENDERSON’S LAST FUCKING FIGHT WAS IN AMERICA. And it was against Wanderlei Silva, one of the guys this bozo included in Hendo’s list of defeated opponents. This isn’t just some innocent typo. This isn’t even just one dumb statement in an otherwise factually correct article. Pretty much the entire fucking article is written around the idea that Henderson hasn’t fought in the US in over 7 years.

Yeah, this is just a standard fanboy “Fuck You” to the mainstream media. But come on. This dumbass gets PAID to write this. I hope they force feed him a jar of nickels for this piece of shit article, because that’s about what he deserves for it.

So next time you read something on MSNBC, maybe you should think twice about relying on it, because they apparently have no issue just saying shit that’s just completely wrong. That’s MSNBC, which has an invested worth of over 500 million dollars, making statements that even the most braindead TUF noob on the Sherdog forums wouldn’t make.

Anyways, I’m just saying.
