Friday Free-For-All

Random internet fun: WolfenFlickr? Your Flickr pictures on the walls of a Wolfenstein game? Oh, yes. It is as fun as it sounds. Although it can be little weird to see your grandma eating corn on the cob at a family picnic...on a Nazi castle wall.

PhotobucketRoger Ebert didn't hesitate to call outgoing Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist Jay Mariotti a jerk, and we commend him. Mariotti took a trip to Beijing on his employer's dime, shortly after signing a new 3 year contract, made the brilliant realization that newspapers are dead and the future of news is on the internet (...don't newspapers have websites?), and promptly quit. Mariotti has long been understood to be a raging egoist, a critical crank who doesn't seem to have any love for his subject, and generally a clueless pain in the ass. White Sox response to his quitting: "it's about time." Readers of the Sun-Times response: "happiest day of my life, (etc). Ebert's summary: "...On your way out, don't let the door bang you on the ass." Sometimes calling an jerkass a jerkass just feels so right.

Gentle reminder: Are you going out to shows this weekend? Take your camera. Take pictures. Put them in the Bastion Flickr pool. We do a photo post every week and since we can't be everywhere, we would love to have more contributions from you. (Not to mention, make videos. And send us links. And, blog. We peek through your online rumblings and pull out the fun stuff. If your blog isn't listed on the right hand side of this page, email us the link, and we'll put it up.)

Have a great weekend, everyone!
