Wait, what?

Elton John performed at Rush Limbaugh's wedding?

WHAT?

Did he just give Rush a way to defend himself from being called a gay-basher when he says they shouldn't be allowed to marry, adopt or exist? "I'm not homophobic! Elton John performed at my wedding!"

Best Kid Ever.

My four year old nephew:

"I have to poop so bad I'm gonna go number 100."

That officially makes him the best kid ever.

Programming Note

By the by, if you are not watching "Community" on NBC Thursday nights at 8pm every week, you are incorrect and must submit the correct answer immediately.

That shit is funny.

This is from the Halloween episode (keep in mind Chevy Chase is dressed as Beastmaster):




If that doesn't sell you nerds on this show, nothing will.

Health Care Question.

Howdy. Long time no post.

Okay, so my very knowledgable friend had this explanation of my biggest qualm about the health care bill.

I want universal health care. But I'm told this bill contains a provision where Americans will be REQUIRED to purchase health care, and will have their payments subsidized by the government. If they don't purchase health care, they will be fined.

However, REQUIRING someone to purchase health care at all seems completely wrong to me. You can just choose not to drive a car for car insurance and the like, but you can't choose to not be alive - suicide is illegal.

So my friend seems to think that people are champing at the bit to be the first one raising a legal challenge to being REQUIRED to buy health care. Which in a few years will reach the Supreme Court, which will then be overturned because it's unconstitutional to REQUIRE this. His thinking is when that happens, the entire health care reform package will also be overturned with it, thus rending ALL THIS SHIT MOOT.

Someone tell me this isn't true. Someone tell me this wasn't a bunch of painful shit for no net gain.

How quickly the fanboy worm can turn

I've hated the Red Hulk with a passion for quite some time now.

Then, a new Hulk book (non-Loeb!) puts together an awesome nerdy bad guy team of the Leader, MODOK, Dr. Doom, Mad Thinker, Red Ghost and the Wizard and calls them The Intelligencia, which is just a nerdgasm.

Then, my two favorite big-headed bad guy dorks, the Leader and MODOK, are apparently the ones who created the Red Hulk.

IS THAT ALL IT TOOK TO MAKE ME LIKE HIM?

We'll see. I still hate "A-Bomb" and I wonder why there are 40 She-Hulks now, but I fucking love The Leader and MODOK working together. Not just because it makes for awesome Heroclix teams, but that helps.

Hello.

I am in Cleveland.

Likely not for very much longer, though.

Soon to go to Columbus for a little while.

I forgot my toothbrush.

I'm kind of gross.

I'm also not interesting.

I haven't watched in a while, but a couple of back to back episodes tonight are crazy. One, Stabler is fucking awesome dealing with Christine Lahti's shit, and now Munch is the head of the precinct while the captain's reassigned. What the crap.

New LJ Search

Wondering what this new LJ search entails. I've wanted a personal LJ archive search for a while, but I'm now thinking to make my whole LJ friends-only instead.

Can you do that in one shot, or do you gotta go lock posts individually?

Anniversary

My dad died five years ago yesterday. I just realized that today.

I don't think about his death day. I always think about him on his birthday.

I think that's a good thing.

Random Marvel Funnybook Spitballing

Man, I'm trying to figure out why Norman Osborn As Super-Duper Machiavellian Mastermind of Everything In the World just sticks in my craw so much - irrationally so. I mean, if Lex Luthor pulled this kinda bullshit, I'd probably be find it awesome, so the problem may lie with me.

Potential reasons for this:
1. Bendis is right and I'm an old whiny craplog who can't just deal with it and accept change. It's highly probable that I'm the father whose comics these aren't. I just have a hard time accepting whatever canon throws at me. If I admit he could be right on this, he has to admit that Disassembled, House of M and Civil War ALL SUCKED AND SUCKED HARD.

2. He shouldn't have been resurrected to end the clone saga in the first place, because it also involves HIRING AN ACTRESS TO DIE IN AUNT MAY'S PLACE AGH. An old gripe, sure, but then again I still bitch about how out of character Colossus was during Secret Wars. Although that reminds me - did that 'does he or doesn't he have Peter and MJ's Baby May stashed away somewhere' notion ever get resolved? Or is that erased by Satan?

3. I still resent the Gwen Stacy Goblin Kids and hold that against him.

4. He's a public psycho murderer and no amount of snake oil should cover that up - if Jeffrey Dahmer fired a killshot on the Skrull Queen, he'd still be Jeffrey Dahmer.

5. There has to be a character better suited to be a Machiavellian mastermind in the Marvel Universe than the guy who gets gooned on goblin juice and cackles. It feels like they made the Joker the president or something. Then again, Osborn kinda combines Luthor and the Joker, I suppose, and I guess he's got a special kinda dramatic (and sales) oomph being who he is.

6. I get all my information second-hand, so I might actually enjoy the books themselves if I actually read them instead of criticizing summarized plot points. It's just when I try, I get all "what the christ" surly about it and go back to my random peripheral books that stay as far away from the big events as possible.

7. Maybe I'm just wondering why NO ONE HAS TEAMED UP AND KICKED HIS ASS YET. Although now that I think of it, the whole Osborn saga is making a powerful argument AGAINST the registration act. "Hey, fight injustice! Sorry, can't, injustice controls my mortgage."

I guess the upshot is that I hate him and all his douchebag "Dark Everybody" so much that when this guy finally, FINALLY goes down, he's gonna have to go down SO HARD and SO VICIOUSLY and so MJOLNIR TO THE FACE that I might actually buy it to read it. Seriously, his HEAD NEEDS TO EXPLODE. Of course, Marvel doesn't have a good track record when it comes to satisfactory endings to mega-events. It always seems to come down to 'interesting ideas, frustrating execution' for me.

I think I just have to figure out how to stop taking comic books seriously.

But seriously. Fuck "Daken." Just FUCK HIM. FUCK THAT STUPID PIECE OF SHIT HOW THE HELL IS IT POSSIBLE THAT YOU ARE WORSE THAN A TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA HOOKER WOLVERINE CLONE GIRL? JESUS FUCKING CHRIST HOW DO YOU EVEN SAY YOUR STUPID FUCKING NAME?

Goddammit, make Deadpool good again, stop shitting on T'Challa, and give me back my bitter 30 year old Spider-Man 2099 and stop making him a run-of-the-mill teenager. And OH GOD FUCK THE RED HULK. FUCKING RED HULK?! SERIOUSLY FUCK THAT THING.

HEY MARVEL WAY TO MAKE CHARACTERS I HATE MORE THAN GAMBIT. FUCK ALL THIS SHIT.


As you can see, I have work to do.

Movie

Don't see "Sorority Row." It blows.

And I feel bad for Rumer Willis for inheriting her father's jawline.

As for "9," I liked it, I would watch it again, but it's missing something. Go see it when it comes out and tell me what it is.


Also, "All About Steve" is purty bad. Sandra Bullock keeps trying to do different things with romantic comedies and I respect that, such as playing a kooky crossword puzzle creator who learns it's okay to be weird and that she doesn't need a man to have a happy ending. They're just never really that funny.


My crush on her from Demolition Man days still exists, though.

Behold The Greatest Iron Man Adventure of All Time

This is going to be the best thing ever.


I also just learned that there is a famous comic artist who is just named "Jason." I don't care how unpronounceable your Nordic name is with it's crazy blendo-vowels, you can not be a one-named person and that one name is "Jason." That only works for hockey masked guys, and even he has a last name.

I'm also not sure how I feel about this "Wednesday Comics" thing. All I can think is that it makes comics more unwieldy and uses up more paper.


I saw Harry Potter and the Irrelevant Subtitle this morning for free. I have now seen three of these films in the wrong order - 4, 1, 6. This last one didn't quite leave me with the same sense of 'fuck these movies' as the previous two did, although I misread recent headlines and was expecting the Rupert Grint/Hermione make-out in this one and it never showed. Apparently, they just filmed it for the next one. Silly.

But I demand this of you kid-wizard nerds. Name me Five Worthwhile Things that Ron Weasley ever does in these movies that make him something other than a stupid lump of half-comedy that everyone should kick in the pants. He seems like the last kind of dork that could center a love triangle of any kind. Although I do like that his real name is more pottery than his potter name. I'm told he "knew how to play chess" in the first one, so all you have to do is tell me 4 more. In the movies, not the books. And I don't think off-handedly using the word 'luck' in order to remind Harold that he has a magic do-whatever-I-want potion counts.

Jim Broadbent, however, is perhaps the best human of all time.

Save maybe Tony Millionaire.

Schedules.

Goddammit. I even marked it on my calendar, but I forgot to get my kickass presale tickets for Pearl Jam's shows in LA, and now they're all sold out.

Possibly for the best. At some point I became a fuddyduddy who finds concerts dull and loud. This is incredibly depressing.


EDIT: Nevermind. Tickets procured! ROCK AND OR ROLL.

People watch "Fox and Friends." Which is, incidentally, the worst name for a show ever.




With any luck, Fox is about to have fewer friends.


So time to watch "Viacom and Palz!"
