Random Lyrics? Oh, You Better Believe They're Back

Why you gotta shove it in my face?
As if you put me in my place?
Cause I don't care if you or me is wrong or right.
Ain't gonna spend another night
In your bed.

Laws of men are just pretend.
They ain't mine.


Why'd you have to be so mean and cruel?
The dogs are loose I'm on to you.
You ball and chained together from the dawn to dusk.
Can't call it leavin cause it's just
I never came.

And What Would Halloween Be Without Alice Cooper

With special guest Slash (He's real you guys)

Happy Halloween

A Difference Of Twenty Years In Formula One

First, the Sunday drive. That's Fernando Alonso in a Ferrari with a 2.4L V-8. Notice how smooth the road is. Notice his hands on the wheel. Notice how smooth the engine sounds even though it's running at close to a mandated 18,000 RPM although it could run a lot higher. Power steering, power brakes and even fly by wire throttle. The driver points the car and the computer decides the rest.   Now to Ayrton Senna's McLaren with a 3.5L V-10 maybe getting up to 13,000 RPM. The engine's screaming because it's in pain. Notice he's also driving one handed because he still has to use a regular shift knob instead of those cool paddles behind the steering wheel. Notice how the engine wavers because the driver is getting his foot kicked off the accelerator by the bumps. It doesn't look like a video game. 

More Nightmare Fuel - And Probably With A Creepy English Accent

I was also going to go with...
  • I didn't want you to find out this way.
  • How does your coffee taste this morning? A little... "sweeter" than normal?
  • They've sent the signal to begin. I'm so sorry.
  • And now that I've told you all of this, there's just one more thing I have to do.
  • Once my demands are met then, and only then, will I tell you where your family is. 
  • I need to borrow the car.

This Is What My Nightmares Are Made Of

Oh, it's probably fine for the government to develop unstoppable human-killing machines... until they become self aware...

The Versailles Presidency

Yeah, So Obama's Getting Kind Of Aggressive With That Whole Stealing From the Next Generation Thing, Huh?

For Those Of You Who Still Believe In The Magic Of Movies....

Apparently George Lucas is still really interested in things he's intent on destroying.

And You People Wonder Why I Can't Sleep At Night

I just keep thinking about the man with the squirrel in his pants. Why did the man have a squirrel in his pants? Why?? WHY!!????

And Now For A Musical Interlude

You Know What's Sad?

When you read articles like this from a newspaper in a deep blue state with quotes like this...

"I really don't like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family's pocket each year, that's otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy."

...and know that if an election were held today, Obama would still win reelection.

I Really Should Keep Notes On Things

I have no idea what post or story this picture was supposed to go with.

Oh, And Speaking Of Michael Bloomberg

When my father first came to this country there used to be a saying. When you did a good job on something you would clap your hands together and say, "Like New York!" It meant you did a really good job and you did it with class.

People don't say that anymore.

...I was going to post this a long time ago but didn't because it's dumb but now I need another post so...

So anyway, earlier this year I had the stomach flu or something and I was sicker than I had been in a really long time. I mean I felt sick, laid down on the couch and didn't get up for like three days. Like completely wiped out. And in this sickly malnourished and dehydrated state certain things I heard or saw played with me fragile little mind. First there was the Russian meteor explosion I turned on the television right after the part where they said it was actually a meteor(ite), where they started talking about nuclear explosions and yeah, my brain kind of took off into hysterics. Luckily when I awoke after plowing head first into the wall at the end of the cellar stairs

Next came Joe Biden, who kind of makes you question reality when you're stone cold sober anyway but he started arguing for more gun control by telling people to go buy shotguns and murder people from your balconies. At least we got a song out of it.
And then there's this. I don't know what this is.
  I could say the whole mess is pretty representative of Michael Bloomberg's ego, a big extravaganza that's supposed to look large when it's really in a mostly empty arena, but I'm still wondering why Destro from GI Joe is waving the French flag at 10:00. Or New York City flag, whatever.

Is It Time For An All Out Blogging Binge?

Yes it is, Other Barry, yes it is. As most of you know... well, ok maybe you don't but I have a semi sort of self imposed goal of knocking out ten blog posts a month. I know, exhausting. Especially with the high quality I maintain. But anyway, in order to catch up to my quota I have to get to 100 posts by the end of October. Tomorrow. Or... well now today. Which means I need 40. Do I have that level of blogging commitment?

Well.... no. Obviously.

And I'm not sure where I'll get that level of motivation either but we'll see. I may have to get weird. I may have to get cheap. I may have to scrape the bottom of the barrel. I just hope I don't do that Ace of Spades bit where I say, "I hope I don't do one of those posts where I say I was going to post this a long time ago but didn't because it's dumb but now I need another post" and then the very next thing I post is, "I was going to post this a long time ago but didn't because it's dumb but now I need another post"....

So Yeah, Obama Hates The Marines

Well sure, he has a distaste for anyone willing to defend "America" but it seems it's especially acute with regard to our Marine Corps. It's all about putting people in their place with authority you didn't earn. Which is pretty much the only kind of authority a Liberal can attain.
And oh yeah...

Exit question: Are you sure we can take three more years of this?
