Happy Friday!

Here's a German video on how to hide your boner.

Oh San Francisco!

You make it too easy.

Oh Britain!

You make it too easy.

Unpopular Stance

So, I came across this in an article about things that customers do that airline employees hate [Waah!]:

Get Off the Phone
This is a common complaint in most retail industries, but it bears repeating here: It's rude to talk on the phone while interacting with the person behind the counter. And when you're at the airport checking your bags, it slows things down for everyone, says Mary Ann DeVita Goddard, a former customer service representative for Continental Airlines.
"Passengers would walk up, stand in front of you, continue their conversation, and expect you to know where they were going and how many bags they were checking," she recounts.
Respect the people behind the counter enough to put your phone away when you're speaking with them. And if not for their sake, do it for the people behind you who are delayed by your chatty ways.

Okay, so I know this isn't likely to go over well, but as far as I'm concerned customer service workers who complain about this can go and get fucked. Do you have the right to expect to be engaged? Sure. But guess what? You are getting a paycheck to deal with the inconvenience when it doesn't work out that way, and I-the guy on the phone-am the one whose business pays for your wage. You are not doing me a favor. You are doing your job. As a paying customer, I reserve the right to tell you to go to Hell.

Now, I firmly believe that common courtesy dictates that you engage the person you're doing the transaction with, but you can't force people to be polite. Especially in the travel industry, where most workers are total fuckheads anyway. And by that I mean, I've never had anybody in the travel industry go out of their way to make me happy, but I've had several who went out of their way to make me miserable.

Need More Info

San Diego gets an 'F' in air quality. Sounds pretty terrible, but wouldn't you know the article doesn't mention whether anyone actually gets a passing grade or not. This sounds to me like one of those environmental measures that no one can possibly live up to, but you can never expect today's journalists to actually provide sufficient data. Show me the whole list, please.

Who is John Galt?

We may never know, as the producer of Atlas Shrugged is having second thoughts about going ahead and making parts 2 and 3. He blames the critics for dumping all over the film, and while I agree that critical appraisal has been slanted heavily against the messaging of the movie, I find it hard to disagree that from a purely theatrical standpoint Atlas Shrugged Part Uno is kind of a piece of shit. Bummer, though. I'd still pay for my tickets to see it play out.

Sorry, Blogust

Food Insecurity?

I don't want to sound insensitive or anything, but is this article even in English? 'Food insecurity' sounds like an eating disorder. Are they trying to protect the feelings of people who shop at Food 4 Less or clip coupons? I'm so confused.

Happy Monday!

Here's a fun article. Some of the conclusions are absolutely mind boggling, but it's nice to know that the occasional Supreme Court Justice occasionally displays at least a modicum of common sense and even some semblance of a sense of humor.

Rearden Metal?

Is That Snoop?

How can something be this terrifying and this hilarious at the same time?

They need a video. With bitches in it.

Oh, Brother-I Mean...Sister?

I just don't know what to think about this at all. Life was so much easier back when I trusted people like doctors to just be doing the right thing. I can't tell when they are anymore.

...I don't think it's overstating the issue to say that I need this.

Thaddeus Strikes Again

And I can't appreciate a guy in his office with a guitar any more than this.

Heck, I have 4 guitars in my office.

Friday, April 15, 2011


How did I not remember that Thundarr the Barbarian took place after we all died in the apocalypse of 1994? That's some dark shit. They will no doubt make a movie soon, but that comet will probably get a Garotsuva makeover.

I Just Don't Know

Will Ferrell in a film done almost entirely in Spanish which seems to ape telenovellas? I'm intrigued. In my opinion, Ferrell whiffs about 9 out of 10 times when playing the lead in movies, but that 10th time is Anchorman and it's genius cannot be denied.

I may have to check it out just for those bad ass special effects.

I Gotta Tell You...

...I kind of like this guy more than Christie. He doesn't try to be a rock star. He doesn't try to overwhelm people in Town Hall discussions to make applause worthy Youtube clips. He does the work. He presents the work. He defends the work.

Footloose Remake!

This is a very long joke, but it's pretty good. Update: I'm sorry, I was wrong. this is not pretty good, it's awesome. I highly suggest you find an hour and a half to watch it.

Here Is The Whole Thing

Like BVM said, they just get it. When I lived in Portland, this girl I was seeing was apart of a club called Recess Time. She played dodgeball, capture the flag, and kickball. Each team had some hipster like clever name. Afterwards they went to the bar and drank PBR. Another game they would play was street golf. They had regular clubs but the ball was a tennis ball. The holes were empty trashcans in front of assigned bar locations. After each hole was made, a drink was downed and then on to the next hole.

Portlandia Post 3,146,765 ...

Well, what can I say. These guys hit it on the head again and again.

This Is Pretty Good

Friday Video

Of course I had to post this

Get Out Your Nerd Boner

Someone made an Elfquest trailer in order to try to drum up interest in making an actual film. Frankly, it looks like it's about to lead to softcore lesbian porn at any moment, but hey, marketing. Check it out.

So, what happened to the dudes? Or were some of those chicks supposed to be the dudes? Whatever. I hope this manages to drum up interest because I would really love to see how badly Hollywood could fuck up Elfquest. And frankly, I'm surprised they haven't made it, what with all the opportunity to bash humanity. I think the truth is, however, that the reason they haven't made an Elfquest movie is that when you break it down it's the story of little people riding around on dogs. I don't know how well that translates to live action, but maybe the Smurfs movie will open the door. La-laa La-la-la-Pfttttttt!

Trump Blasts Viera On Today Show

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy


Well not really a spoiler, because I don't think anyone will be surprised to learn who the terrorist is in the new "Source Code" movie. That's correct! I just learned it's a right-winger trying to bring down the government. A muslim is suspected at first, but since not all Muslims are terrorists.... Anyway, blah blah blah. Timmothy McVeigh was a right wing terrorist as bad as any muslim terrorist and he is everywhere. Just accept it.

Not Enough Fists in the World.

Just kidding! This Jonathan Gold sounds like a real solid character. Poor bastard.

From the "Do As I Say..."

"...not as I do" files.

Yeah, Sure. I'm In.

Face it, you thought you were over the Thriller videos. Time to admit you were wrong. It's cool, you're only human.

That's Some Good Commentary

Spike man was born this way. Check it out.

Sucks to be Japan.

Here comes another one. I guess God finally got pissed of enough about all that schoolgirl tentacle rape porn to finally do something about it. I mean, I've heard they have that anyway.

Pawlenty Fail?

One member of my army of liberal friends on Facebook posted the following video of The Young Turks (whatever that is) lampooning Pawlenty for his attempts at comedy while addressing a group of college age Republicans. Pawlenty's offenses? Making Bieber, Sheen and Gaga jokes. The commenter, who himself looks to be about 40 years old and is clearly liberal, blasts Pawlenty for not knowing what college age kids would think was funny and for prodding and pleading with the crowd for reaction. Funny, all I hear is the crowd responding in a positive if not overwhelming manner. Sure they're aren't rolling in the aisles, but then I presume Pawlenty wasn't there on a comedy tour. I guess not everybody has the comedy chops of our esteemed Commander in Chief, or at least Pawnety's writers aren't as good. The whole thing is an obvious and desperate attempt to make a Republican look bad just for the sake of doing it, and frankly they end up doing a terrible job at it if you ask me. Anyway, watch this video and tell me who really fails.

How To Piss In Public

The Walk and Pee is #5.

Oh Nerds! Please Don't Ever Change!

Sorry, but that suit never really looks like a suitcase, always looks like a slinky and that nerd will never get that 1200+ hours of his life back. Still, dude is gonna pull mass nerdette tang at Comicon.

Nazis Cartoon


"But if Romney is the front-runner and Pawlenty the freshest face, the Republican Party will have let both its own constituents and the country down." - here

Of all the candidates we run, Pawlenty and Romney are at the bottom for me. Romneycare, which I remember him defending 4 years ago while governor, shows me that he will make too many risky compromises and Pawlenty... Well, I don't have anything bad to say about him other than he has got to be the biggest goober I've seen come out of the GOP.

Jindal anyone

I like Christie, Bolton is a fucking badass and Paul I haven't really followed. Honestly I am sorta pulling for the hot librarian tag team. Palin/Bachmann. The muslim world would give up their weapons just out of pure lust. "72 virgins in heaven? Bah, give me a piece of that!!!"

Update: Paul Ryan says some nice things, but are they realistic?

1 Out Of 110 Diagnosed With Autism?

Just heard Austismspeaks give that number on the T.V. Really? Am I being cruel for calling major bullshit on that? The commercial even says that it's a 600% increase. It's as if they also don't believe in that number.

Creating The New Upper-Class

Back door communism requires a ruling class. The ruling class require our money. here

What Could Go Wrong?

I see a solution that involves turning Chicheley Hall into an insane asylum. Close the doors now, never let these people back out...
