Turn It On Again by Genesis [what in the hell is that song about, anyway?]

Today, I listened to Genesis’ hits album, starting with “turn it on again.”  What in the hell is that song about, anyway?  Let’s take a look at the lyrics and try to figure it out.

Affordable Care Act is ruled constitutional, robs Americans of election year of attack ads

obama-2009

SWISH!

Now that the Supreme Court has ruled that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional, the aftermath can begin.  In the next few months and years, the law will be implemented, but I’m more concerned with the here and now.  If the court had struck down the law, we would have seen some sweet attack ads in the upcoming presidential election.  Now we can only guess at what we’ve lost… Read the rest of this entry

My Hand! (I’m serious this time.)

Guess I shouldn’t of made that joke about my hand the other day, because since then I’ve contracted poison ivy and I slammed my finger in the front door.  So the lesson here is don’t garden without gloves on.  No wait, it’s don’t cry wolf.  No wait, it’s close all doors by using the doorknob, not the door itself.

Anyway, this Ivarest cream works pretty well so far.  Just do yourself a favor and get to the pharmacy at the first sign of outbreak.

UPDATE:  The cream is better than nothing, but there is no substitute for being really cold.  I’m pretty sure that the cold constricts your pores and therefore, you don’t have get itchy.  Crank up the a/c and chill.

Wow.  That was lame, even by my standards.

Here we are, chilling at a highway rest stop.  After this photo was taken, one of the other pack members came along and took a pee on the sign.

It was awesome.

This Sucks: Blu-Ray Discs [Video Rant]

I don’t own many blu-rays, but the ones I do piss me off, as this video explains.  That’s about all there is to say about that!

TECHNICAL NOTES:
This was filmed using a Samsung Infuse 4G and edited in Adobe Premiere CS 5.5.  Music by Rickvanman.

Escape From LA movie review

escape-from-la

My Score: 70%

Kurt Russell returns as Snake Plissken in the sequel to 1981’s Escape from New York. It’s a sequel nobody asked for, and even if they did, they’d probably asked for it 15 years earlier than they got it.  Still, it has some redeeming qualities, most notably, it’s cast.  Russell’s co stars include Steve Buscemi, Peter Fonda, Pam Grier and Bruce Campbell. Cliff Robertson plays The President and back then, he looked like Mitt Romney looks now.

No kidding.

And Robertson’s not the only one.

Anyway, Michelle Forbes has a supporting roll and apparently, I’m a jackass for thinking the only things she’s been in is this movie and Star Trek: The Next Generation. In reality, she’s been working consistently since the late 80s. Read the rest of this entry

X-Factor #237 (comic book review)

x-factor-issue-237

Rahne is still down in the dumps about rejecting her demon spawn baby, but Theresa and Lorna are tired of her moping. Like the cover says, Road Trip! (Too bad Tom Green wasn’t available.) Off they go to visit on of Madrox’s dupes, who lives as a priest. They hash out all of Rahne’s recent history until she has a few good cries and decides that she needs to connect with her kid – great splash page at the end. Read the rest of this entry

Pasta Salad Fail

Err…  Am I using ‘ fail’ correctly?

image

This pasta salad is totally weak.  A few pieces of broccoli, some sad canned olives and peppers so small I can barely get them on the fork.  I knows you can’t expect the whole world for three bucks, but this is horse shit!  I take food seriously, damn it!

Is TurtleGate over or just on hold?

leonardo-tmntIf you follow the site, then you already know that I’ve been complaining about this for a while now, and I’m hoping that this revelation means the tide is starting to turn in my favor. Read the rest of this entry

WIGS, a new YouTube channel

wigs-youtube-channel

Uhm… your glasses break?

The new YouTube channel, WIGS, launches with three shows:  Jan, Serena and Blue.  It’s teasing an additional 17 other shows with similar names:  Ro, Kendra and Ruth and Erica.  You think they’re trying to hit the male demographic?  Yeah, probably not.  All I can find out about the channel is that all it’s shows will star female leads and their tag line is “WIGS. Where It Gets Interesting.”  I guess “Lifetime, but on YouTube” doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Anyway, I’m too lazy to watch this stuff myself, so if anybody does check it out, let me know how it is.

Storm King Art Center

We wandered around storm king art center and saw sculptures of… stuff.  Now I don’t know a damn thing about sculptures, but last Saturday was a fine day for being outside, and that’s enough for me.

Of course, I would prefer NOT to be confronted by some guys giant ass.
