Not happy with the way your lips look? Can’t afford Botox, zany lipstick or really pointy teeth? You’re in luck. Thanks to a new iPhone app, you can talk into the back of your phone and a cartoon mouth on its screen will synch-up with yours. Check out “Mouth Off” here.

In other less stupid news and nakedly capitalistic news, Prince is offering a new internet subscription services. For $77, he’ll perform for you live from his ever-so-tasteful LA rock-star pad. He’ll even take requests. I have already asked if he can do anything by Gene Autry. No response as yet.  See all the gory details of the subscription service offered by the Artist Who Formerly Displayed His Backside here.

    Hey, a blonde girl I know told me about your blog. Good stuff! It’s definately you. I’ll be sure to keep up with your latest observations each day when I “come home from the office” – they are still the year 100 B.C.

    Tell everyone I said hello, and drop me a line sometime. It’s always nice to hear from civilization.
