Some good news today

The cast of Serenity have signed on for at least two sequels, assuming that the first movie does well at the box office.

And now some crappy news: I was almost giddy when I heard that bloggers would be given press credentials for a pre-release screening of Serenity. Until, of course, I remembered that the class I'm teaching this fall starts THE SAME EFFING NIGHT!!!

Does that sound bitter? If not, I didn't say it right.

How to sleep at your desk and not get caught

This is pretty clever, although I think it took more effort to avoid work than to actually do it.

Assorted assholes, nothing

Glenn Reynolds? 100

Of course, you can replace "assorted assholes" with Andrew Sullivan. Excerpt:


Okay, I take it back. The dumbest statement of the week comes from Andrew Sullivan, who doesn't seem to get the difference between "today" and "yesterday" in a post from this morning criticizing something I quoted last night, but which he attributes to "today" as, I guess, evidence of my obliviousness to this morning's terror bombing in Iraq.

Sorry Andrew, but I'm not capable of precognition. On the other hand, I can read a clock. Jeez. I confess that I don't understand why Sullivan is so desirous of scoring cheap points at my expense these days, but this is pretty lame. As Jeff Goldstein put it in a different context: "Andrew Sullivan is completing his transformation into a Kos Diarist."

If you're familiar with the Puppy Blender's understated tone, you'd recognize that this is a whopper of a bitchslap, and quite deserved, too.

It's a bummer, too. Sully was the first blog that I read regularly. That is, until he went yip-yip-yip, barking at the moon, batshit insance.

It's that time of year again

Yes, it's "show me the boobies!" day again, better known as Harvey's birthday. Well, I did supply some nice images last year, as well as a little dessert this year, but I'm no piker. Harvey wants boobies, he's gonna get 'em.

Just so no one gets fired by accidentally opening some NSFW images, I'm putting everything in the extended entry. more...

Is it live, or is it Memorex?

Think that you're pretty good at know what's an Urban Legend and what's real? Take this quiz and find out. No fair using Google, A9, or any other search engine.

For the record, I missed two.

Best analysis that you will see

To no one's surprise, it's from Bill Whittle. Excerpt:


Because to say we are responsible for the terrorists in the world is a way to say we can control this wolf. If we believe we made him, then that means we control him. We can unmake him. Such a worldview appeals to the left, because it gives them Godlike Mental Powers. All we have to do is act differently and he will go away. It’s complete moral cowardice, of course – but it’s understandable cowardice. It’s denial, because if all the sins are ours then all we must do is repent and the wolf will go away.

But that’s not what the wolf says. The wolf is not interested in what we do. He does not spare little lambs because they rub up against his leg and make cooing sounds. The wolf wants to swallow us whole. He wants the fight. He wants the war and the conflict. And he will keep on huffing and puffing until one of three things happen: We show him our throat, for him to rip out; or we convert to Islam and become part of his Caliphate; or we head out into the forest with a shotgun and blow his fucking head off.

I made my decision by about 8:00 eastern on September 11th, 2001. I have never regretted it.

It takes courage to fight oncoming storms. Courage.

Courage isn’t free. It is taught, taught by certain tribes who have been around enough and seen enough incoming storms to know what one looks like. And I think the people of this nation, and those of New Orleans, specifically, desire and deserve some fundamental lessons in courage.

Because we are going to need it.

Let me reiterate: Bill Whittle is a national treasure. Go read it all. Now.
