I Did Not See That Coming

Posted: March 28, 2014 by veeshir in Random Crap

Wait, yes I did (warning, annoying fucking link that continually reloads and slows down your computer to a fucking crawl), and so did anybody who’s paying any attention at all to the Hollywood. They just cannot allow anything but lefty ‘values’ be shown in a good light.

A recap of Noah (The way it should have been done!!!!!) full of spoilers.

Now if you read this blog you’d know I used to be Catholic but now I’m not but I don’t hate religion, I just don’t believe.

But, as you’d also know if you read this blog, I’m sick of people taking shots at religion, that annoys the crap out of me and reflects poorly on me as an atheist-leaning-agnostic.

This movie is one long shot at religion and the Bible. Rebooting it into an allegory for how man sucks, all the prophets are worse than the dead, white, slave-owning, so-called “Founding Fathers” and really, the fallen angels were not all that bad.

You know a movie is bad when the reviewer has to repeatedly say, “I am not kidding”.

It’s full of rock monsters, glowing aliens (Adam and Eve) and how Mankind needs to die, I am not kidding.

Just rent The Greatest Story Ever Told if you need a Bible fix.

What The Fucking Fuck?

No, seriously. What The Everloving Fucking Fuck?

 

Words fail me.

A Do Over?

Romney

That’s full of obvious stuff, he doesn’t mention Obama’s hostility to democrats the world over, but the rest is pretty blatantly, “Well duh.”

A large part of the answer is our leader’s terrible timing. In virtually every foreign-affairs crisis we have faced these past five years, there was a point when America had good choices and good options

 

So why do Romney and our fine establishment assholes in the GOP keep telling us “Mitt was right” and stuff like this?

Able leaders anticipate events, prepare for them, and act in time to shape them. My career in business and politics has exposed me to scores of people in leadership positions, only a few of whom actually have these qualities.

Romney’s trying to give America a Do-Over. We should have elected him in 2012 so he’s going to magnanimously give us a chance for a  do-over.

I have a different two work phrase for that idea:

Fuck That.

Below the fold, some stuff that’s necessary in these troubling times (more…)

The More Things Change

Posted: February 14, 2014 by veeshir in PEBKAC, Random Crap, Uncategorized

The more they stay the same.

I always see people who act as if the sequel/remake/TV-show-to-movies is new, or that we’re doing it more today than yesteryear.

I’ve always figured that it hasn’t changed so I decided to pick a year at random and check. I thought, not too recent but well into talkies, it’s hard to argue it’s a remake when the year before they were shining a torch through thin paper, so I went with 1938.

I’m only counting US films, I avoid furrin films, mostly because if I want to read I’ll read a book. Geez, do what the rest of the world does and dub them.

They list 79 films. Or so I guess, I might have missed one or counted a furrin film, but it’s close enough.

I’m counting remakes, sequels or based on books, short stories or plays. I’m including books and short stories because, to quote Grandpa, “When I was your age, TV was called books.”

I got 44 out of 79  based on something from popular culture. I’m a little depressed there was no remake of Beau Geste.

Below the fold, it gets long. (more…)

I’m Not A Rabbit!

I need some reeeeeh…..eeeehhhh…..est.

 

I’ve seen people say that they couldn’t make Blazing Saddles today and others argue and say it could.

That pretty much sidesteps the real issues.

First, nobody would make it, all the people who make offensive movies only offend Christians and conservatives, they don’t have any desire to upset any leftist apple carts.

And of course, the real issue.

You can’t even show it these days.

IFC shows it uncut, that’s it. Everybody else butchers it. What makes me laugh is that AMC used to edit out the fart/campfire scene, but now they’ve put it back in and take out all the “racist” stuff, that’s not racist but exactly the opposite.

So the only scenes that could be made are the fart scene and the above one.

Which ain’t all bad. Madelaine Kahn is all about teh awesome.

Unrelated link.

I’ve seen people linking that poll to show Hillary! is kicking sloe-Joe’s ass, but check this out.

  • U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky gets 47 percent to Clinton’s 43 percent;

  • Clinton is at 44 percent with 43 percent for U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas;

  • U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin leads her 48 – 43 percent.

Cruz, Rand Paul and Paul Ryan are always attacked by Minitrue as far-right idealogues who want to kill Teh Children, with establishment GOPers attacking the first two and yet, Paul and Ryan are beating Hillary! and Ted Cruz is well within the margin of error.

Not as often as years ago, but some days America makes me proud.

An Excruciating End

to an excruciating season. This was one pitiful season.

Crappy teams still had a chance in December. The Giants still, theoretically, had a chance in December.

I only have one more thing to say about yesterday’s game.

That’s not a man wearing a fur coat.

Now that’s a man wearing a fur coat!

Awesome fur coat pic via nINME.  Still not sure what a nINME is, but I do know you don’t capitalize the first letter.

Somebody’s Watching Me

Posted: January 31, 2014 by veeshir in Hotassery, Random Crap

The plant in front of my porch always has flowers, they’re usually kind of nice, they look like paper roses.

The other night this one creeped me out the whole night as I tried to read.

PLANTFACE

I kept expecting it to climb through like some desert El Seed.

And since I’m putting pics into the post, some art.

Update, watch that gif while you’re playing the song, it’s hypnotic.

Okay, I might want a Smart Car

Posted: January 20, 2014 by doubleplusundead in Random Crap

But only if it has a Hayabusa motor dropped in it.

Yeah, I know, it’s old enough that Numa Numa Guy was like holy FUCK that is old!  But still, that is awesome, it’s like a little go-kart on crack.  I wish they’d kept it stock looking, I love a good sleeper car.

First, the odd.

This is very odd. I thought all of America was a Constitution Zone, I didn’t realize we had Constitution-free zones.

District Judge Edward Korman, a US federal judge, has reaffirmed an Obama administration policy granting officials the authority to search Americans’ laptops, citing a controversial premise that makes citizens within 100 miles of the border eligible for a police check.

So there’s a 100 mile area along the border where the Constitution does not apply.

How the fuck does a federal judge who is supposed to decide on the Constitutionality of stuff say that the Constitution does not apply in America?

I know it’s not new, but it pisses me off every fucking time. If more Americans knew about it (Minitrue isn’t covering it until we have a GOP pres) I think there’d be some problems. But then, I’m an eternal optimist.

This is very odd, I’m praising sports writers.

Another year, another Good On Ya Baseball Hall of Fame voters.

 

The cheating sacks of shit like Sosa, McGwire, Bonds and the rest of the steroid crew did not make the cut.

I do think McGriff should make it, the crime dog was a good player, but the steroid freaks should not.

 

This is only odd for those who don’t pay attention. They’re talking about how there are good and bad jihadis in Syria.

That idea, of course, is why the middle east sucks so badly. Jordan thinks all jihadis suck so they don’t have the problems Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and the rest have.

A partial list of jihadis in Syria.

Barish listed the participants as the following: “the Syrian Revolutionaries Front, including the Farouq Brigade, the Union of the Syrian Clans, 11 other factions, and defected fighters from other brigades; the Islamic Front, with the Ahrar al-Sham in Raqqa, Maskana, and Manbaj, Souqour al-Sham, and al-Tawhid, which has a significant presence in Aleppo; the Jihadis’ Army; and the Nour al-Din Zinki Brigade.”

…large groups of the Islamic Front, Ahrar al-Sham, Jabhat al-Nusra, and some FSA brigades are participating in Raqqa battles against ISIS.

It’s a dogs’ breakfast of jihadi assholes all fighting like scorpions in a bottle.

I will say, that ISIS is an even funnier acronym than the MILFs in the Philippines.

First, Isis is a pagan god. I thought jihadis kill people who worship pagan gods.

Second, it’s the name of Archer’s spy group.  I look forward to KAOS (Kill All Onbelievers Squad)  popping up next.

Well, that’s the odd. Let’s get to the sod.  In honor of CO, some grass below the fold. (more…)

Foosball And Terrorism

Posted: January 12, 2014 by veeshir in Random Crap

Well, 10 minutes into the game and we can see who the refs have money on.

3 bullshit calls on Carolina and 3 non-calls that should have been called on San Fran in 10 minutes.

I don’t like either team, but I hate cheating asshole refs.

Bring Back The Replacement Refs!!!!!!!!!!! They suck on accident!

Update on foosball, I don’t like Carolina, but I really hate the whiny bitches in San Fran.

Now, back to the post.

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now. It’s the Internet Archive of the page from Kavkaz dot org (used to be from Free Chechnya, now they’re just terrorists) in early October of 02 where the former President of non-Russian Empire Chechnya (he’s dead now) had a Q &A on terrrorism.

Before that, they were anti-terrorist, but then Bush said, “Chechnya who?” and they knew they were on their own.

Q…president of USA, George Bush addressed to Chechen leadership with an appeal «to cut off all relations with international terrorism, with Osama bin Laden and his organization «Al-Qaeda».

A…Frankly speaking, we were surprised that George Bush made such an announcement.We have no connection with Bin Laden….

We have no connection with Osama bin Laden, with his organization «Al-Qaeda».

In territory of Ichkeria, there is no fighter from «Al-Qaeda» and never was.

They were on Afghanistan’s side, why? And why am I cutting them slack?

Afghanistan is the unique country in the world, which recognized independence of Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.

Bush, of course, told Tsar Putin I he could do what he wanted. So he did stuff like this

Grozny_war

That used to be downtown Grozny. Then Tsar Putin I decided to ring it with artillery and pull a Hama where he killed tens of thousands of people. Nobody gave a shit. Tsar Putin also killed any journalists who tried to get in, they stopped trying.

The Russians were killing and then raping people (men, women and children, in that order) and then selling the bodies back to the families. Any male over 14 or so in any area where the Russians went were killed and then their bodies sold back to the families.

The money quote

Last events have shown the true value of so-called democratic values. Having bargained with the Russian empire and actually having betrayed Ichkeria, having trembled their own ideals, the west has shown, that their value is small. But this tender will not have any consequences and influence on mujahideen. We shall continue the fair struggle till to full victory, Insha Allah!

So they turned to terrorists for help and ended up where you always end up when you let Islamic terrorists help you. Involved with Islamic shitheads.

Unlike the Lebanese, I have sympathy for the Chechens.

They were being slowly destroyed as a people and their only allies were Islamic shitheads after Bush rolled them under the bus for some bullshit from Tsar Putin I that he immediately repudiated as Tsar Putin I was unleashing a real terrorist war on Chechnya, including torture, murder, rapine and destruction of cities.
