I'd say Sting and Boner are neck and neck in terms of douchebagitude. It's just that Boner is the louder of the douchebags. Sting has been relatively quiet for the last couple of years. He releases his dopey new age solo bullshit and his sullen christmas albums with little fanfare. Boner has to make a big show over every single thing he does. The man takes a shit and everyone has to hear about how great it was.

You want proof? I present you exhibit A:

And yet there is no timeline for The Police or Billy Joel

I don't know enough about Joel to vote, but Sting is certainly the bigger douche if compared to Bono, and his solo career is abysmal. I do prefer The Police to U2, though.

The other day, I thought I saw Bono rooting around in my garbage.

I said, "get out of there, you douchebag!"

He looked up and snarled. I then realized it wasn't Bono, but a possum.

It's all about Sting here. All the love of the Police forgets that there were two other great players in the band. Synchronicity is basically Sting's The Wall, where it's all his baby except for a few morsels tossed to his partners-now-sidemen.

Sting's still going strong on the douchey, too. Billy Joel may have put out an album of classical music, but Sting put out an album of classical versions of his songs called Symphonicities, which is precious enough to win the entire competition right there.

How is it Gene Simmons isn't in here? Or is he just an asshole, not a douche?

Shocked, but not surprised.

This is so douchey, and bends the continuum of douchiness so strongly, that you could probably enjoy it ironically.

Not much to add although at long last it looks like I've found a home for friend's wonderful formulation who likened an album of Sting's lute abominations as 'like Tubbs from the League of Gentlemen trying to retouch a Girtin with a Wall's Solero'.

Peek inside the world of a Bono Buddy.

When authorities asked to enter, Alexik shouted a refusal. LAPD Officer Michael Orosco didn’t smell anything, but the neighbor’s report was alarming, he would later testify, and after a while, Alexik stopped answering. As the room went silent Orosco feared an explosion, or that something had happened to the person inside.

Minutes after Alexik split, police used a battering ram to break down the door and the hastily assembled barricade.

Inside, the lights were out. Alexik’s power had been cut. Light spilling in from the hallway illuminated a five-foot-wide handmade tile mosaic of the CIA seal, the object previously standing on its side to block the door. It had tumbled to the ground and settled face up.

Once inside, Orosco used the light on his pistol to find his way. He saw a framed image covered in Arabic writing and depicting a woman in a burka, pointing a high-caliber pistol right back at him. A framed portrait of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez hung on one wall. The place was littered with power tools. A musty scent lingered.

As Orosco moved into the bedroom, the toe of his boot caught something hard poking out from under the bed. He pulled out a rifle-sized gun case. He opened it and found a sawed-off shotgun, a handgun and components for an SKS assault rifle, the Soviet predecessor to the AK-47. They found one of those, too.

Orosco’s partner noticed the AK propped up against a wall inside a closet. It was loaded and “ready for live fire,” Orosco would later testify. Dozens of plastic identification cards were strewn across a bed. An open desk drawer was full of cash.

After Orosco and his partner found the guns, the police prepared a search warrant affidavit and, at 4:20 a.m., a judge approved it. Investigators tore through the apartment for at least four hours, uncovering a veritable buffet of drugs — crack, heroin, Ecstasy, crystal methamphetamine, cocaine and an array of pharmaceuticals. They also found miscellaneous gun parts that detectives believe were part of a weapons manufacturing operation.

But the most curious contraband was the $15,000 in counterfeit hundred dollar bills, a noteworthy find considering the location. The Reserve Lofts building was the former home of the Federal Reserve, before the institution moved into more modern digs next door.


Even before he moved to California, he was partying hard, rubbing shoulders with high rollers and celebrities. Two photos obtained by Downtown News show Alexik with U2 frontman Bono. In one, they appear to be at a beachside bar, and Alexik has one arm around the Irish rock star. The other, a black and white print, shows the two sitting on a couch, Alexik in a white bandana and both wearing sunglasses. The name of a photography and film processing shop in Saint Tropez, France, a vacation oasis for the international elite, is printed on the back of the picture, along with the year 2003.

Two other images, neither of them dated, show Alexik embracing the supermodel turned reality television star Janice Dickinson. In one, they lean into each other, posing on a beach.

Representatives for Bono and Dickinson did not respond to requests for comment. Alexik would not discuss the nature of his relationships with either star, out of respect for their privacy, he said in a letter.

"You found out my private memories through someone violating my rights… I’m not willing to reward you or anyone else for doing so. I know these people and have had the relationships I have had with them on the basis of 2 major things. These were things I realize with anyone I encounter. 1. They breathe the exact same air I do. They are members of the human family and enjoy being treated as such. 2. They adore and respect privacy, for themselves, their families and their business. (Ok, not so much Janice). But understand we all do… don’t you?"


Fortunately, he only got probation.

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - Brian Alexik, the former fugitive who was arrested last year for drugs, weapons and counterfeiting charges, was sentenced today to five years probation as part of a plea deal and released from custody.

I've put a lot of thought into this.

If the question is who's more douchey, then the answer is always Sting.

It's a tough decision. But the answer is Sting.

He's King Douche of Douche Mountain.

His name is fucking Sting.

in spite of that i think i have to go with Sting too for his media-friendly, non-controversial green politics during the 90s. i still revile him for refusing to meet members of the Brazilian Rubber Tappers Union. some of their members had been murdered due to their opposition to logging operations which were destroying the Amazon rainforest and he had the opportunity but blanked them.

for your gutlessness, Sting, you are the Uberdouche. the other two are just everyday common-or-garden wankers, albeit despicable ones.

Mmm, tough one.

Sting: a couple good Police songs.

Billy Joel: Gershwin for sports bars.

Bono: anything interesting about U2 is in their early guitar licks. Gotta go with this one.
