Don’t ya think that Hillary kinda feels like this:

1. Clinton has been complaining that Obama won’t debate her in Wisconsin.  If I remember correctly, it was recently pointed out on Jim Lehrer’s Newshour that they do have TV in Wisconsin. I think there are sufficient materials for Wisconsin people to see what Clinton and Obama are all about.

Verdict: faulty ACME rocket skates.

2.  Clinton claims that Obama plagiarized Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. Clearly Patrick doesn’t give a shit:

Senator Obama and I are long-time friends and allies. We often share ideas about politics, policy and language,” Patrick said in the statement. “The argument in question, on the value of words in the public square, is one about which he and I have spoken frequently before. Given the recent attacks from Senator Clinton, I applaud him responding in just the way he did.”

Patrick approves. Obama is not fazed, either:

An Obama campaign spokesman said Monday the campaign was “obviously not traumatized” by the discovery of the similarities, ‘which is why we’re not putting out any official statement.’

 Verdict: ACME anvil that floats above you and then hits you on the head when you fall down into the chasm.

Carmelo Anthony drawn on an Etch A Sketch

[youtube width="425" height="355"][/youtube]

This is a video of the creation of an Etch A Sketch drawing of Carmelo Anthony. This artist is certainly talented, and you will be astounded at the final product.

I think this skill resonates with us so much because we’ve all held an Etch A Sketch at some point, and most of us just end up making Tron-like random tracks in the toy…. (At least I do….)

Heart-shaped traffic light in Brussels? We are NOT to be outdone.

Bro Taguchi pointed out this story about how there are heart-shaped lights in Brussels for Valentine’s Day.

heart-shaped traffic light

Aw, that’s soooo cuuuuute. Just as cute as:

But I thought this would be a nice candidate for an American model for traffic lights on Valentine’s day:


I think it brings out the way that many, though not all, people will celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Bad Vinyl Music Album Covers

Awful Album Cover

Pumpkin was doing some research on the internet for another Trumpet Blast and stumbled across a pretty awesome thread in a bulletin board on called “The Crap Album Cover World Cup” and I had to share it with The Trump. It starts off with a GEM and keeps going from there. The album cover above was picked STRICTLY because of the twin-huskyness of the Amason Twins.

Within that thread I found a link to another collection of similar images at the Museum of Bad Album Covers that has tons of heavy-metal and other craptastic record covers. Then I tried to research those Husky Twins from above their and found one of the strangest websites ever that has me feeling different about myself. It is called and their tagline is “a panoply of evangelical eccentricities, un-orthodox oddities & christian cultural curiosities”. From what I gather it is a bunch of weird racist church related pictures. Worth a few seconds of your time to click on it.

Amazing how I just did a ’6 degrees of Kevin Bacon’ that connected crossdressing men on album covers to a polka mass.

Album Cover Illusions via SleeveFace

Pantera SleeveFace Album Cover

The Feed by G4tv recently featured a post as a Nugget From the Net on a site called that features people holding up album covers in such a way that gives off the illusion that the album is part of the resulting photograph. The picture above shows the Pantera album cover of a man getting punched in the face and the user filled in for that body… you should get the idea. It’s a pretty cool idea and the ones they have over there so far are pretty well done. The Trumpet will be keeping up on this site and bringing some of their best back here to share.
