British Army Demotes Mascot Goat, Billy

A British army regiment's ceremonial pet goat was demoted in disgrace after it marched out of line before a host of dignitaries during a parade to mark Queen Elizabeth II's birthday, a military spokesman said Saturday.

The military mascot, a 6-year-old male goat called Billy, was downgraded from the rank of lance corporal to fusilier — the same status as a private — after army chiefs ruled his poor display had ruined the ceremony earlier this month at a British army base in Episkopi, western Cyprus.

Heroes Tribute #1

If you care at all about sports (or even soccer, for that matter) you could do much worse than visiting Can't Stop The Bleeding, a site tended to by Gerard Cosloy--the man who fed you indie rock when you were a kid.

Gerard Cosloy is not pictured above but another Cosloy is and, please, let us have a moment of silence for the Dead Milkmen's Dave Blood. Seriously.

Dallas Austin In The Pokey

Doesn't anyone care that legendary producer Dallas Austin is living a nightmare in the Middle East as I type this?


ANYONE??? (I'm looking at you AJC.)

It's just me?


Update: The good people over at Atlanta Metblogs don't seem too sympathetic.

Update #2: AJC is on the case (finally).
