Oh Yeah, This

maybe I'll try to get back to some shit stirring. Probably not, but I feel like it'd do whatever it is in me that religious folk try to call a soul some good to do so. I'm just almost at the edge of emerging from what has unquestionably been the worst year and half or so of my life, tweaking Ann Althouse, an identity I still remain distinct from, or flinging poop at Megan could be a nice way of easing back into what used to be normalcy.
Or maybe I'll just revive FMM as the less well written, more jackass-y version of the franchise Susan has taken over so capably.
Anyway, yeah, I miss these waters, I should probably swim in them again.

Also, This

An Experiment

Thanks to Substance McGravitas for making it possible.

I know it doesn't make much sense. Doesn't have to.

Holy Crapsticks

This is one for the ages. Ann Althouse's hubby shows up in the comments and... well, if you ever wondered who could possibly choose to marry and spend large amounts of time with Ann Althouse, who I am not, you have your answer. I tried to pick an excerpt to blockquote, but it's just too good to rip any one piece out of context. Read it.

Random Thought

Going on the basis of everything a movement conservative accuses their opponent of doing is actually something they're doing on a far worse scale, is it possible that conservatives actually are communists?
Maybe some rogue element of the Soviet empire moved to Wall Street after the Iron Curtain fell.
Yeah, probably not, but at this point I wouldn't be that shocked.
And no, I'm not high right now.

Rhetorical Question

are all fundamentalist Christians repressed homosexuals?
(Oops, oops, oops. I forgot Christwire is satire. Doy.)

The funny, it burns;
Only weeks ago, we looked into a dangerous new trend where school girls were taking pictures of themselves in Batman panties and sharing them with millions of strangers on Facebook.

Was there a comic book writer’s nerdy scheme behind the uncouth antics? Or was it a deeper cultural impact these fetishized fantasy characters are having upon America’s youth?

Reviewing the tale of Batman, we found a story that fit the model of exploitation and degradation. As reviewed, Batman is the story of a middle-aged man who fancies forcing a boy to wear tight see-through stocking.

The Batman is a character who represents child exploitation and gay adoption. Taut muscles bounding as they spend the night being thrashed and bound by criminals, only to overcome impossible adversary through neatly placed gadgets and groping one another, Batman and the young, supple Robin return to their ‘batcave’ where they have wounds nursed by a male butler named Alfred.
Btw, there is nothing comparable here to the story of Christ, who spent all his time in the company of 12 other men and died a violent, bloody death which the re-enactment of causes fundies to experience an ecstasy so intense they weep. Nothing phallic or homoerotic about being poked with a spear, neither, so shush.
(Apologies to any sane Christians who chance by.)

since a (very small) number of you are being kind enough to stop by here, imma ask for a little feedback. What, if anything, would you like me to write about? Should I give Megan a visit, rant about the follies of drug policy, try to explain why I love Radiohead so much, spend several thousand words wandering through what I see as the cultural/philosophical underpinnings of the left and right today and why I so strongly choose one side?
Or I could just keep being random and see where it takes me, anything is an option.

Well, I'll keep being random, too, no matter what. To thine own self be true, etcetc.

Cat Porn

cuz Binkley is still one beautiful ball of fuzzy love.

Lap cat;

Under the bed cat;

I can't really take a pic of his current cutest activity, which is curling up in a ball next to my shoulder under the covers and providing me with a warm pillow. That'll end come spring, tho.

Irony And/Or Hypocrisy

Part 1;

Part 2;

'Nuff said.
Or maybe not. Just in case you don't know who he is, scan his twitter feed a little, you'll get the idea.

Technically he's talking about the Tories in the UK, but the point holds. Stanley Donwood is a talented artist, even aside from his association with my favorite band of my lifetime.
