Why are you doing this to us?

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Ooooohhhhhhhhh NOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooo. Just in time to capitalize upon the discovery of Richard III’s remains (and the popularity of Game of Thrones, because hey, it’s old-timey people in doublets and armour so it’s all the same to the viewing public, amIright?) comes a BBC/Starz (STARZ?!?! REALLY? Was The CW all booked up?!) miniseries about the Wars […]

Gimmie a ‘W’, gimme a ‘T’, gimmie an ‘F’!

Monday, February 25th, 2013

What’s it spell? DUMBASS! Days like today, I hate the internet.  Because every so often you encounter someone online whose opinions are just so friggin’ dumb, they force me into having to defend things that I hate.  Sometimes it’s Catholicism, but today it’s the Oscars.  Mind you, I have nothing against the Oscars as a […]

Cat Snatch Fever

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

  First, let’s kill all the humans. You will recall the tale of how we came to own our Ed, right?  How we found him as a “stray” 6 month old kitten, then several month later our across-the-street neighbors came by with a sob story about his being their cat who they lost.  Who they […]

Now In Meh-O-Vision

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

  This is a weird summer movie season for me.  Ordinarily, I’m frothing with hate at the slate of summer’s films.  This year, there isn’t even anything that looks bad enough to rage about.  And there are a number of films that, on paper, look like something I should enjoy, but all I can muster […]

THIS

Monday, June 11th, 2012

THIS. THIS. Forever and ever, THIS.  So infuriating when all of the ignorant hypocrite right-wingers cry “Founding fathers this” and “Founding fathers that.” None of them could probably even name more than two FFs without peeking at bills in their wallet, and clearly none of them knows what the founding fathers actually said, and it’s […]

A Pox on Both Their Houses

Monday, May 21st, 2012

You know what?  Screw The Avengers. At first I was simply indifferent;  I have of late lost my capacity to be entertained by comic book movies.  I’m done with them. D-O-N-E.  And I have nothing but apathy for every Marvel character with the exception of some X-Men.  So I just didn’t care.  BW saw it […]

I like hate, and I hate everything else

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Usually this time of year I do my annual Crush Rankings update, but I think I’ll put that off for a while.  Instead, let me turn my attention to its Evil Twin.  People and things that, for good reason or, in many cases, no reason at all, I utterly despise at the moment.  This could […]

Gimmie Shelter

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Continuing on with the Year of the Rant, today’s topic is simple, yet all-encompassing: What the fuck is wrong with people? Through Facebook, I’m subscribed to updates from Animal Friends, Pittsburgh’s no-kill shelter.  I also visit their site a lot to look at the animals for adoption.  I should not do this, I know.  It’s […]

Starting the New Year Off Right

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

With a long, offensive rant. 2011 was the year of Suffering in Silence.  I declare 2012 the Year of the Rant!  And this one has been simmering for a good six months.  I may not have any friends left when this is over, but what’s a new year for if not clearing the decks?

This is why: Employment Edition.

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

THIS is why I’ll probably be unemployed or underemployed for the rest of my days.  Because I when see shit like this in job ads, I don’t know whether to laugh or spit at the pretentious double-speak, the misuse of words, and the way HR fuckers can string together entire sentences that are utterly devoid […]

“This is old-time hockey.”

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

Well you know what?  FUCK old-time hockey. 361 fighting penalty minutes. In a 60-minute game. So, anybody out there still want to argue about the noble, time-honored tradition of hockey fights?  How they are an integral part of the game?  How they are a legitimate strategem?  How they are needed for morale?  Watch the three […]

The Suck? You’re soaking in it.

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Yeah, yeah.  I don’t blog on this here thing for how many weeks and when I do, I just choose to come in here and whinge? Too bad.  Here’s an update: -  Work is a sinkhole of misery.  More on that in a later post. -  Caring for my very elderly, chronically ill cat is […]

See you in hell, my friends

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

No, not another post about Shaun White-Sid Crosby-etc-themed perverted thoughts.  I wish. Nope, it’s to let you know that this blog may be dead for a week or two because my traditional May Hell Month at work, which should be winding down right now, is in fact only just gearing up! There were…delays.  And all […]

Legalize it!!

Friday, December 4th, 2009

What’s up with all of these so-called liberal states shooting down gay marriage??  First California and now this: “In a passionate debate the New York State Senate voted down a bill that would allow gay couples to marry” Seriously, I would expect this sort of ass-backward ignorant bigotry from some redneck hellhole like say, Pennsylvania.  […]

Sick

Monday, September 21st, 2009

Yeah it’s that time. Time to bring on the bitching. Time when I should be hanging up leaf garland and curling up with a hot cocoa but instead I am sweaty and sticking to my bloody tanktop. The time jokingingly known as “autumn” in Shittsburgh. I am sick. Sick of wearing summer clothes. Sick of […]

Mysteries

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

I am at the office this morning.  In a building that was just renovated/remodeled 5 or so years ago.  So tell me WHY THE FUCK has there been a jackhammer being operated RIGHT OUTSIDE MY WINDOW for the past TWO-AND-A-HALF HOURS?!?! WTF are you FIXING??  This building is NEW!!! Shut it the FUCK UP! Typical […]

WRONG

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

I’m sure that you’ve all heard by now about poor Morgan Freeman being in a serious car crash.  They say he’s doing better and has just suffered several broken bones.  But still…wtf is going on with all of these brilliant people from Batman? Heathbaby dies.  Christian gets tossed into the slammer and has his good […]
