This is a performance by a 3D hologram in Japan. I only wish the Japanese spent their considerable imagination and technological know-how working on shit that could actually improve life beyond simply keeping club kids rolling. That being said, this digital chick is still more lifelike than Ke$ha.

The Green Mile

The glassy eyes of the nation were on California yesterday as Prop 19 (legalization of marijuana) was defeated by 52% of the electorate. Had it passed, it would have served as a barometer for other states to pass similar legislation. Despite marijuana being the number one cash crop in California- a state that is deeply in the red, financially- legalization opponents still adhere to archaic misinformation about the war on drugs, draping themselves in platitudes about a "public health issue". Numerous studies over the past two decades have revealed alcohol to be far more damaging to society than most other drugs combined, yet no one is even remotely suggesting that we return the nation to Boardwalk Empire status. God forbid there are any anti-pot advocates who get cancer, glaucoma, ALS, or a hundred other afflictions whose symptoms are easily ameliorated with marijuana. Seeking refuge in the financially crippling Big Pharma will surely make them feel much better.

Erection Day

Well, that was a fun week. As of yesterday, the military's archaic "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy was reinstated after a brief period of judicial sanity. The various judges hearing the cases on the basis of their constitutional merits evidently don't see eye to eye, so it goes back for another volley. And what luck! Just in time for politicians terrified of losing their seats to use it as another cultural wedge issue. Oh, I almost forgot: a leak from a new Pentagon study reveals that the troops really don't give a shit if someone's gay or not and top brass admits that the ban is bad for the esprit de corps. (That, and we're now behind Libya in letting gay soldiers openly serve.) I guess people running for office are too worried about taking "getting behind the troops" too literally. What a proud day to be an American.
