Thinking (It Should Be Practiced Before Tried In Public)

I've seen pinball machines that don't get that much action,...

John Ford Called (And He Still Wants His Art Form Back)

Matt Drudge is asking the toughies this morning:
"With Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Will Smith flopping, what next for Hollywood?"
Oh, I don't know, maybe they'll try a viciously anti-NewAge film, starring somebody men can identify with - because we're pretty sure he's not a multi-"married" gay man, an adulterous Ken Wilber groupie, or a closeted Scientologist. 

That's just a guess, though I'm pretty sure they'll stick with M. Night Shyamalan,...

Sunday In Sodom (With Another Self-Important Sermon)

Don't Establish A Kingdom In The Video Room!
(Yes - I'm aware he said "there's no one finer than young Cox back there" - but I'm still running with the video room,...)

The Fakery Of Fakes (Faking How Fake They Are)

Slipping Bozo The Tongue (Kids Don't Think Like That,...)

Regarding The New Yorker's gay muppet cover, Canada's Maclean's Magazine reminds us on Feb. 6, 1994, The New York Times Magazine had a few questions for “those who ask about Bert’s and Ernie’s sexual orientation”, including this one:
"5. How long have you been preoccupied with the sex lives of puppets?"

About as long as they've been allowed to co-opt children's programing. There's some wild cognitive dissonance going on here (Whatever happened to Elmo?) almost as serious as Sartre's and the French, if there can be such a thing:
"In his famous introduction to Frantz Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth, he writes with unconcealed glee about the prospect of Algerians killing their former masters, which happen to be the French."

Getting everything wrong seems to be a goal, or rather, "helping" others to do so is:
"So the Iraq war was, despite all that went wrong, a good thing; the "overwhelming majority" of Iraqis are (and presumably feel) better off because of it; and the fault for all that has gone wrong is ultimately with Iraqis themselves: It's a remarkable point of view to encounter in June 2013."

We're also watching everything fracturing under the strain of so many lies and misinformation:
"Bono: George Bush, Evangelicals Saved 9 Million AIDS Victims"

Watch how we treat kids, for whether we're coming to our senses or not,...

Creepy Coincidences Make It Deserving Of A Sainthood


Hip-Hop's obnoxious celebrity lantern-jawed lunatic declared he wanted to "make better music" and, then, releases a difficult album where he openly says he's God. 

Fuck it, the way things are going, I'm game.

Shoot your best shot, Yeezus - Christians, pay attention - what "miracle" did Kanye West deliver?

Working strictly from a 21st Century digital recording template, echoing any recent decade at a whim, high and low (frequency and culture), while destroying all structure - and without it all falling apart - only to find, underneath it all (and after all this time) everything still cosmically (and comically) boils down to another ugly American black almost patriotically spurring the French to “Hurry Up With My Damn Croissants!” 

TMR's conclusion should be forgone: 

The man's obviously not God, but - damn it - he was really trying to pull it off,....

BOY/GIRL (You Shouldn't Have Slept Around So Much)

It's so screwed up already, they should just stop. Yesterday I was asking who Ann Althouse was so pissed at, knowing it's not me, and now I think I know from reading about Hillary Clinton:
"She’ll wade through an infinite number of Bill Clinton’s infidelities to enact her revenge on mankind."

Wasn't that what we got in Ann's cackling mad woman routine? Follow me:

Bill cheated on Hillary. Bill cheated Monica. Bill signed DOMA. 

I know it's just pop psychology but like Hillary, when it comes to men, I think Ann's gleefully punishing the country for her generation's cowardice.

And - like Affirmative Action before it - undermining the credibility of her gay son, because (it doesn't get more obvious than this week, especially with Ann's insane ravings) his new status is subsidized

By his Mom

And it's all based on a lie. 

What's the lie?

Well, 1) That I had anything to do with it. 

Sorry - that was your "first" husband, Mom.

And 2) that, just because the kid's a freak, anybody (including you) gets to treat him that way - or force anyone else to - isn't that the gay parent's beef, with everyone else their snowflake may encounter?

Now - just like with legalizing pot - good Americans are being forced to go along with another lie, supposedly for the greater good. Meanwhile, I'm losing track of what the difference between feminism and racism is, when it's still coming down to slanted juries, crooked lawyers, and kangaroo courts - coupled with an unspoken demand no one acknowledge it.

Sorry, I live here, too. And I'll speak:

As a young country, trying to shake off a stupid past, this approach is not working,...

Opening Pandora's Box Has Always Had Consequences

Relax,...And Take Refuge (From The Ridiculous) In Raps

So what do you do after a week like this? 

Why, go hang out with another kind of charismatic criminal, what else?

Walk home from Downtown at 4 AM. 

Maybe strike up a conversation with two guys who share a weird political view.

Pay a visit to the arts types, still up at night, creating something dreamers can't imagine.

Go out with friends in the morning.

Finally making it home, safe and sound, forgetting the weird-ass world far behind,...

Miss Gay San Juan 2013 (No Homophobes Necessary,...)

Does this sort of behavior call for a protest march or a PRIDE Parade?

Remember - they're just like you and me:

If we started fights by sucker-punching people while everybody's dressed in women's clothing.

Shit - is that a vision of the future or what?

As I'm being nudged, pushed, and forced to go along with this nonsense, I think I'm also finding a whole new avenue for blogging potential:

Thanks, you crazy kids, you,...


Smiling Faces

You have to wonder, at 60 years old, what decade (or century) Ann Althouse thinks she's living in:
"You took the opportunity to oppress when it was there, and now that it's gone, you want to say you are oppressed. Man up, losers."

Who is she talking about? Who "took the opportunity to oppress when it was there"? It's like me railing against slave owners (who delusional Ann more reminds me of) rather than accepting everybody here, now, found the world this way, too. I was a gay man's caretaker. Does that fit "the opportunity to oppress" narrative she's spinning about straight men today? Or will she ever understand A) she doesn't have a clue about us, and B) her stupid ass is part of the problem?

I mean, if you pick a fight, you get a fight. Is that so difficult to figure out? 

"Whatever happens happens" as Roger L. Simon said.

I've made the point if they demand we go there - the weak lose.

Are you starting to get it yet?

She says we should "Man up" but - for thinking and acting like men - we've also heard her bullshit. We're already used to women being "dissatisfied" but this is ridiculous.

What she's ultimately saying is America's a zero sum game to her - winners/losers - which is why I bag on her feminist ass. I don't buy her bullshit for a minute. She's an oikaphobe.

That lack of a connection to the country is why The Civil Rights Movement, which wasn't filled with venom, cynicism, or out for revenge, was different.

It was for America. America's why blacks marched.

Whatever his faults, MLK never aspired to defeat anybody. 

He didn't, and wouldn't, lead a Black Power Movement.

It's only when Ann's generation - of all stripes - got there that everything went so wrong,...

Tie Together With The Popularity Of Vampires And Viola!

I haven't read the book, but I think this guy nailed where we are, politically, right now:
Demons (Russian: Бесы, Bésy) is an 1872 novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Though titled The Possessed in the initial English translation, Dostoyevsky scholars and later translations favour the titles The Devils or Demons. 
An extremely political book, Demons is a testimonial of life in Imperial Russia in the late 19th century. 
As the revolutionary democrats begin to rise in Russia, different ideologies begin to collide. Dostoyevsky casts a critical eye on both the left-wing idealists, portraying their ideas and ideological foundation as demonic, and the conservative establishment's ineptitude in dealing with those ideas and their social consequences. 
This form of intellectual conservativism tied to the Slavophile movement of Dostoyevsky's day, called Pochvennichestvo, is seen to have continued on into its modern manifestation in individuals like Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Dostoyevsky's novels focus on the idea that utopias and positivist ideas, in being utilitarian, were unrealistic and unobtainable.
I'm not that concerned:

Activists rarely gather life's contradictions undue any to be inserted,...

The Order Of Things (Isn't Taken In Line At A Starbucks)

They used to say Steve Jobs possessed a "reality distortion field". 

I figure something like that's in effect when I hear people say women are "strong" and straight men need to get used to some new second class status below them and gays.

The truth is there's the kind of people a Jobs could bend to his will but, unfortunately unseen by most, there's also the kind he couldn't.

It's kinda hard for me to imagine anybody else being more successful,...

New Anthem (Based On The Words "Don't Play Around")


 OH! I'm DYING over here! I'm laughing so hard it feels like having the hiccups for a year! Remember how I told you Glenn Reynolds & Co. are,...sheltered? This gets to the whole premise of my argument, about how fake the "gay" marriage debate is, because the people conducting it are not (as Jimi Hendrix used to say) "experienced" - I'm from South Central:
“The conversation continued, according to Jeantel: 'So... he told me the man was looking at him, so I had to think it might have been a rapist.' 
Why rapist? A man raping a man? How common is that as a fear?”

That was Ann Althouse showing us how much she has in common with Doris Day - and how little she knows of, for instance, Navy initiation rituals.


 I'll bet she knows all the words to "In The Navy" though.

I'll add that my first knowledge of gays was a man trying to blow me, against my will, as a child. What do these people think makes a man like me? Reality - NEXT RUBE:
“I can’t help but feel that the real story, the big story, is that gay people, like black Americans before them, are being played for fools by what Andrew Breitbart used to call the Democrat-media complex. Surely, the all-Supreme-Court headlines should really read something like, 'GDP shrinks to nothing due to the fact that government is overspending on entitlements while simultaneously spying on American citizens and abusing the power of taxation to suppress political speech at the same time the administration is mishandling world events so that the United States has become an impotent laughing stock whose ambassadors can be murdered at will while tyrants thrive…  oh, and by the way, the Supreme Court ruled…  something that will make very little difference to the overall state of the nation.'”

Alright, this is Andrew Klavan - the man who recently announced "there is something spiritual at the bottom of conservatism" - being wrong on so many levels, again, it would be laughable if it wasn't so tragic.

("Tragic", because people actually listen to these folks, without actually listening to them - if it's really there, spirituality's at "the bottom" you guys,....)

Then there's the linking of gays and blacks, something I'm really getting sick of, because the analogy doesn't work. (I dislike all of these set-ups designed for conflict between us - listen to Klavan talk about "gay people" but "black Americans". Be a conservative and drop the PC shit, dude, you're confusing yourself,...) All you have to say is "Liberace" and the whole argument falls apart. Was Little Richard mistreated? Not that I know of, but then Little Richard's never been a puss, either. Nobody ever talks about stuff like that because they're scared. How about gays being proud of Judy Garland saying:
“When I die I have visions of fags singing ‘Over the Rainbow’ and the flag at Fire Island being flown at half mast.”

That totally screams of The Civil Rights Movement blacks led, doesn't it? Give me a break. It's about as accurate as Klavan's Supreme Court headline. Here's how I would write it:
“I can’t help but feel that the real story, the big story, is that "spiritual" people are, at the same time, in a ruthless quest for power and being played for fools. Surely, the all-Supreme-Court headlines should really read something like, 'GDP shrinks to nothing due to the fact that everyone's overspending out of fear of shadows on the walls, while simultaneously abusing power to suppress speech at the same time the administration is mishandling world events,…  oh, and by the way, the Supreme Court ruled…  something that - like any Supreme Court ruling - is already changing the overall state of the nation.'”

What a moron. Which brings me to the man with the hat, Pajamas Media's Roger L. Simon, shining a flashlight on part of the problem better than most:
“Don’t do Barack Obama any favors! 
He is on so many ropes you can’t count them. The only thing that can help him is for a bunch of rightwingers to start screaming about the sanctity of marriage. 
Don’t do it! Don’t take the bait! 
Make peace with your gay friends, neighbors, and relatives. They should thrive and be happy. Or be indentured to divorce lawyers for the rest of their lives like so many of us. Whatever happens happens. Move on! 
And for those who say we’re on the slippery slope to polygamy, incest, or whatever, stop it! There’s no concrete evidence for any of this. Gay people — the ones who are getting married anyway — want to be bourgeois like you. We’ve all met tons of gay people but very few (if any) polygamists and not a single person who is sleeping with their mother and/or sister. (Well, maybe in the movie Deliverance and I’m not even sure it really happened there.) 
Look inside yourself and stop making this absurd, straw-man argument for which there is no serious real-life corroboration in the U.S., only in the Islamic world. 
(That means you, Dennis Prager. You’re too smart for that kind of sophism.) 
One thing Obama and his minions thrive on is distraction — and protest of gay marriage will be distraction one, I promise you. 
Play offense, not defense.”

Since Klavan already said what a fool Andrew Breitbart thought I am, let's me take Klavan's boss apart,  in the Andrew Breitbart tradition:

Conservatives are supposed to be upholding a principle and this fool's still fighting the last election. Can there be any doubt why this country is losing, on so many fronts, when people can get so easily distracted? He thinks Obama's "on so many ropes you can’t count them" because he and the rest of the media's hooked on these non-scandals (they lucked upon) that, so far, no matter how often they scream they've got something concrete, have fallen between their fingers like sand.

Get your fucking wits, Rog:

We're not supposed to be trying to "make peace", you coward, but be stewards of this nation which, last time I checked, wasn't thriving or happy.

"Whatever happens happens"?

Then, like Dr. Helen before him, this conservative gets "spiritual" (like Andrew Klavan said he would) and comes with a NewAge admonition - reflecting "the path" they're all on - "Move On!"

Which, as I've explained, we can't do because - unlike you who, once, had to go out and "find yourself" - we've always been stuck here, knowing where we are all along, enduring parents (like you?) making "divorce" part of reality "for the rest of their lives".

That was your doing.

BTW - as I just said - this place the rest of us have been is called "Reality", it's in America, and you and your Romney-supporting friends really ought to visit sometime before shooting off your mouth about it's content and ambitions.

We're not bourgeois. I'm hand-to-mouth, and I'm writing this in physical pain.

Just because you can't think of something doesn't mean it doesn't exist - like seeing conservatism, today, from a different perspective.

Like in science, that's supposed to be the point, ain't it, Oh Great Gatekeepers Of The Right?

Call me when you give a damn about something more than Obama's head on a spit.

I'm one conservative artist who listens,...
