William Shatner as Buck Murdock in Airplane II

Schwartz was candid about how he envisioned change under a McCain presidency.

“Less taxes and more war,” he said, smiling. He said the U.S. should “bomb the hell” out of Iran because the country threatens Israel.

Asked by the interviewer how America would pay for a military confrontation with Iran, he said the U.S. should take the country’s resources.

“We should plant a flag. Take the oil, take the money,” he said. “We deserve reimbursement.”

A few hours after the interview, an unknown woman helped herself to Schwartz’s resources.

The Schwartz in question was a Colorado delegate to the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. After Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech, he met a woman at the hotel bar, invited her back to his $319-a-night room, she told him to get naked while she fixed the drinks… and that’s the last thing he remembers; he awoke to discover she had taken, among other things,

…a $30,000 watch, a $20,000 ring, a necklace valued at $5,000, earrings priced at $4,000 and a Prada belt valued at $1,000

The NYT talks with the producers of Bjork’s new video, from the SF-based production company Encyclopedia Pictura:

“We basically went into a ritual artistic psychosis mode where we just went to nature and tried to invoke this thing… it involved using psilocybin mushrooms and going out into Nature in a perturbed state.”

See the video on the NYTimes Online.
