What doesn’t kill you…

Posted by · 7:48 am · August 6th, 2009

You know that episode of “Weeds” during season 3, when Mary-Louise Parker’s Nancy Botwin gets a tattoo of a u-turn sign as a symbol of strength against a former adversary of the same name?  That kind of sums up why I want this Barack Obama socialism poster, fashioning the Commander-in-Chief after Heath Ledger’s Joker in […]

Michael Moore says goodbye to General Motors

Posted by · 11:40 am · June 1st, 2009

In case you’ve been under a rock, allow me to inform you that General Motors was finally backed into a corner this afternoon and filed for bankruptcy, most certainly marking the end of an era and the next embossed chapter in the ever-expanding volume on American capitalism.  To mark the occasion, filmmaker Michael Moore has […]

Not Oscar or movie related, but if you’d like to see Jon Stewart dismantle Jim Cramer on “The Daily Show,” have a look.  This has been a LONG time coming:

Tuesday is bigger than movies

Posted by · 8:35 am · January 18th, 2009

Way off topic for a moment, but I am Canadian, proud of my country, happy to be here, though I confess to having always been fascinated with American history and politics. There are many friends of mine in the United States and I enjoy visiting whenever I can. Cocoa Beach, Florida is a popular destination […]

A sad day for the web

Posted by · 3:56 pm · November 12th, 2008

…the blame lies not with them but with shoddiness in the traditional news media and especially the blogosphere. “With the 24-hour news cycle they rush into anything they can find,” said Mr. Mirvish, 40. Mr. Gorlin, 39, argued that Eisenstadt was no more of a joke than half the bloggers or political commentators on the […]

Posted by · 11:22 am · November 5th, 2008

I find myself just now making sense of the passing of Proposition 8 here in California, an appalling measure that, however naive it may be to admit, I really thought had no chance of passing. Well, it has.  Homosexual couples are banned from exchanging vows like the rest of the country, and beyond rage and […]

Election jibber jabber

Posted by · 6:24 pm · November 4th, 2008

Have at it in this space.  Though I have to say, I’m terribly frustrated with the conservative coverage of CNN.  I understand the networks dropped the ball eight years ago, but Wolf and company are calling states 30 and 45 minutes after they’ve been called elsewhere.  It’s difficult to watch something when you feel like […]

Did anyone just see Rick Sanchez dismantle Joe the Plumber?

Posted by · 12:56 pm · November 4th, 2008

UPDATE (3:59 p.m.): Ask and ye shall receive (thanks to Dan Crooke for pointing it out): EARLIER: Holy shit, Joe might want to see if his balls are intact.  That was brutal.  I hope it pops up on YouTube ASAP.
