Bibliophobia

Saturday, June 30th, 2012

I think I am officially done with Fantasy novels. Last week, out of sheer boredom, I made my first trip to the public library in over two years.  Honestly, public libraries never have a goddamned thing I’m interested in reading.  (But these days, neither do book stores.  We’ll get to that in a minute.)  I’ve […]

Drive-By Drive-Bying

Friday, June 29th, 2012

For your Friday pleasure, six minutes of pure beauty.  Oh, Michael Mann…. *sigh* Game of Thrones? Meh.  The Wire? Whatevs.  This is epic tv-making.  I weep for bygone times.  It’s like, once there were colors in the world, and ever since 1990, everything turned to sepia.

Old People Needed!

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

My friends, I have a problem, and only people who grew up in the 80′s can help! Nobody makes light-wash jeans anymore!  I keep coming across jeans that claim to be “light rinse”, but the mofos who wrote the descriptions clearly do not hail from the 80′s!  I graduated high school in 1990, goddamn it!  […]

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 […]

Hired!

Monday, June 18th, 2012

As of today, Barrett Benedict has been with us for six months.  His provisional period is over and he is now a full employee! Alright, “employee” isn’t the right word, but I did joke with him that he was going to have to write up a 6-month evaluation report (or PowerPoint presentation) to send back […]

A Douchebag Is A Person In Your Neighborhood

Sunday, June 17th, 2012

Time for a little status report. I’m still unemployed.  I still don’t care that much, though I feel so great when I hear that “more qualified candidates” have been selected for freaking minimal-wage grunt jobs.  The ennui is very thick around here.  It’s not so much that I want a job (meh), but I would […]

Brain Scan: 1988

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Yesterday we watched a clip from the Human Rights Now tour.  Throughout 1988/89, I watched my copy like a 3 year-old watches Dora The Explorer.  But there were other concerts that I owned on VHS that got the same treatment, watching them over and over and OVER, usually on weekends.  (We only had one TV […]

As those crazy Tumblr kids like to say…

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

ALL THE FEELS!  ALL of them!! Oh my gawd, look what I unearthed on YouTube:  The 1988 Amnesty International Human Rights Now concert tour!!  Sweet Jeebus, if you weren’t there in the late 80′s you just don’t know.  This event was my life’s blood!  I had it on VHS and I watched it so many […]

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 […]
