Moving to Evening Update Schedule

February 29, 2012

So it happens that I haven’t come close to exhausting all my rants yet.  But I’ve exhausted my willingness to write two posts daily on them.  So I’ll just rant in the evening for a while.  See how that feels. Advertisements

I Want My Own BattleMech

February 29, 2012

So it happens that I was browsing through Something Awful the other day, and saw this link from over two years ago.  I used to be into MechWarrior in a big way.  It was a huge part of my junior high school life.  Come home from school, watch Salute Your Shorts and Hey Dude and […]

Charles Blow is a Bigot

February 28, 2012

So it happens that, after I made my post yesterday about racism and Jeremy Lin, somebody left the following well-reasoned rebuttal as a comment, reprinted here in its entirety: “u fckin asshole” I’m kind of surprised they were able to spell one word of three correctly. Look, I’m not a fan of bigotry.  In any […]

Learn to Shop

February 28, 2012

So it happens that I recently had to make my shopping run.  It was a nightmare.  98% of the nightmarish qualities came from all the people around me being functionally retarded.  The other 2% came from those people as well, and for the same reason.  If other supermarkets are like mine, then most of the […]

Stop Being Lin-tolerant

February 27, 2012

So it happens that there’s an NBA player named Jeremy Lin.  If you haven’t had your head up your ass for the past few weeks, you likely know who he is even if you don’t give two shits about basketball.  He’s a Harvard man, the current starting point guard for the New York Knicks, and […]

The Obligatory Oscar Post

February 27, 2012

So it happens that I watched the Oscars last night.  And there’s a lot I could rant about. Why did Billy Crystal look like he was popping Vicodin backstage just to get through the evening?  Why did Viola Davis not get an Oscar?  Why did Oprah Winfrey get one?  Who cares about Jonah Hill’s opinion […]

Person of the Week: Gillian Bellinger

February 26, 2012

So it happens that so many people have pissed me off this week, I just decided to go with a theme and pick someone associated with yesterday’s Website of the Week, RedLetterMedia.  But it would have been too easy to pick one of the two main dudes.  Accordingly, this week’s Person of the Week is […]

Website of the Week: RedLetterMedia

February 25, 2012

So it happens that I don’t always want to be a nattering nabob of negativity.  There are, in this miasmatic world, a few shining things that fail to suck, or that at least don’t suck consistently.  So on the weekends, unless I really feel the need to rant, I’m gonna take some time off and […]

Anne Frank the Mormon

February 24, 2012

So it happens that a friend of mine (yes, jackass, I have friends) sent me an article from CNN about some Mormons who are getting in trouble for baptizing Anne Frank.  Yeah, that one.  The one whose capital-D Diary you read when you were in eighth grade, and her cover picture made her look just […]

I Say

February 24, 2012

So it happens that there’s a little song which is apparently muy popular among teh yung peoplez.  It’s called “Who Says” and it’s sung by a young Disney moppet named Selena Gomez.  I am linking the music video of the song, because I hate you after what you did to my dog. That’s right, that’s […]
