Covidiots in Wisconsin strike

While driving around on my errands this weekend, I heard on NPR that a bunch of MAGA cheesedicks want to recall the current governor, a Democrat (surprise, surprise). Why? The actions he has been taking to save lives from CV-19, … Continue reading

RIP Chadwick Boseman

Such a damned shame too. I was really looking for to the Black Panther sequel and more Avengers movies because when I was a kid, he rescued them in the Seventies from some gravity-based villain (I guess Magneto was busy). He was young, … Continue reading

Greyhound

It has been a while since I wrote about a movie or two. That doesn’t mean I stopped watching them…I’ve slowed as I’m binge watching a slew of animated shows, plus staying on top of Lovecraft Country. Here’s the one … Continue reading

Orion

The second installment (of seven) regarding Jennifer’s cats. As I said before, they live with her but she’s not all their moms. Plus the fiancé I mentioned is engaged to Jennifer’s daughter, not her, this would make our relationship awkward … Continue reading

1995: Windows 95 hits the streets around now

Windows 95 was the first major upgrade to PCs in four-to-five years and Microsoft’s latest attempt to make their clunky GUI more Mac-like…without paying for it. Many hack comedians and Doonsebury went for all the easy jokes on the software’s initial flaws … Continue reading

In time for Taco Tuesdays!

They also come in corn as well. However, I would recommend not putting in the meat while it’s still sizzling and be reasonable with the guacamole and/or sour cream, you don’t want to suffocate. Silly photo courtesy of Pee Wee … Continue reading

Why they’re the same, convention edition

It’s my rebuttal to all the Biden-Pelosi apologists. The Democrats have no fucking clue nor any concern about how much America is hurting. The Republicans only care about rich people and the Democrats…different rich people, often big tech billionaires who … Continue reading

I hope the king doesn’t kill the messenger

Wizk!ds is another reason why I wish I could live another 20-30 years. Their painted/unpainted miniatures for D&D and other roleplaying games. Man, when I was much younger with more time to enjoy gaming, we didn’t have such a good … Continue reading

Today’s mood

This in a nutshell is why America is the most overrated country in History as CV-19 and the elections of shit-for-brains POTUSes (St. Reagan, Dubious Bush and Orange Foolius) have exposed its weaknesses, myths and vulnerabilities. Meanwhile, “dying, old” Europe … Continue reading

Chocolate snow!!!

Not everything has been crappy for 2020, as per this story from The Guardian, a “happy” accident occurred in Switzerland. As cool as chocolate snow would be, I can’t recommend it around Austin due to the stifling hot weather we have. … Continue reading

Dumb kid with LEGO stuck in his nose for two years

I suppose getting everyone’s beloved plastic building block stuck in a orifice is the new “swallowing a penny,” for small kids. Given that pennies are useless as most countries have wisely ditched them. Anyway, the details on this stupid child … Continue reading

The myth of Antifa

This is a nice counter cartoon mocking how the Trumpkins can only blame themselves when their racism and terrorist ties are brought to light. Allegedly, these morons are using the policies to slow/stop of the spread of CV-19 as the … Continue reading
