From the Top

No, Trump supporters, I’m sorry to burst your disinformation bubble, however many of you are still sticking to Trump’s 2 main threads of falsehoods regarding the election and the current Covid-19 pandemic. First, the election.  Where to start? To take just one glaring and anxiety-inducing example: In the middle of last month, Reich-wing blogger Dan Bongino pissed kerosene on the fire of nutjob conspiracy theorists by posting that members of the Democratic Party will attempt a coup on election day in order to instill their chosen nominee in the White House, overriding election results and nullifying the ballots of Republicans.  On...

Diary Entry 2009.26

Sima & MJ  ||  Cartoons  ||  Microzine Sima Ladjevardian and MJ Hager Yesterday my wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Sima Ladjevardian.  Don’t ask me to pronounce the name, but she is certainly getting our vote in this election.  Running against Dan Crenshaw (R), we hope to have a representative in Congress to replace Trump’s local bagboy. Now don’t get me (too) wrong: there’s a lot I like about Crenshaw.  He was, for instance, in the military, served overseas, and was wounded in combat, losing his right eye.  When I sent a beloved relative a pic of Sima, she...

Trump’s Fatal Failure?

Where Stoppeth the Buck?  ||  Instead of Dealing With It . . . || Timeline of the Coronavirus Pandemic || Response & Previous Knowledge || Last Words: Covid and Vietnam While Coronavirus bodies are piling up, what has been the continued response from the top, and what could have been? Where Stoppeth the Buck ? During the Truman administration, a small wooden sign was placed on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office  reading “The Buck Stops Here”.1 What does that mean? The Wikipedia page has a precise sentence for it: “The phrase refers to the notion that the President has to...

Just HOW Fucking Stupid IS DJ Trump?

Why I Don’t Support Removal Politics || History ||  Science ||  Spelling Geography || Bad Boss || The Fourth Estate || Making Shit Up [n.b.: this post will be modified over time || please check back soon for updates] The full title of this post should include “and incompetent”.  But for time.  And space.  And what sanity remains.

Hell, even Bing can verify anything I say here. Feel free, after reading this...

Skywalker When?

Life at Amazon has been — hopefully understandably — crazy.  Check back after whenever for my review of The Rise of Skywalker. I’ve seen it twice so far, and might have something to say about it.  [ feigning Shock and awe ] 2001.14: Since I never did a review of The Last Jedi, my review of Rise will include a review of Last.  That is the only way, I figure, to explain why I am such a defender of Last, especially as compared to Rise.  Should be finished before May 1st.

Loving LOVE

Recently I had the immense pleasure to attend a performance of the Cirque du Soleil show at The Mirage in Las Vegas called LOVE. It is a brilliant and bizarre 90 minute spectacle dedicated to the music and legacy of The Beatles. I am not a big fan of the circus. I’ve been to circuses, including one called something like the Royal Russian Circus maybe 25 years ago; with dancing bears, elephants walking trunk to tail, clowns so hideous they would make Pennywise shiver from their creepiness, and trapeze artists flying with the greatest of ease over outstretched nets. That is...

The Bad Physics of Ad Astra

a review of Ad Astra MULTIPLE SPOILERS AHEAD, IF YOU CARE TO SEE A TRUE STINKER When Brad Pitt’s newest sci-fi flick was forthcoming, it looked chock full of promise: an intriguing plot, Tommy Lee Jones as the long lost father, beautiful photography and special effects, and the trailers didn’t give away too much of the story, just enough to keep it interesting. In it’s attempt to be a legacy film, Ad Astra takes/steals/borrows straight plot points and even imitates shots from legendary entries in the sci-fi cinema corpus, most notably 2001: A Space Odyssey, Interstellar, Gravity and others.  That’s not...
