On A Sad Note

Sci-Fi writer Andre Norton has died. Aged 93.

I remember reading lots of her stuff in my lifetime.

And it looks like she was writing to the end.

The Jerk

OK, I know I promised not to show any interest in the Micharl Jackson trial but I saw this picture of the King Of Weird with his mother and brother entering the courtoom and before I knew it my brain had connected the dots in the usual weird way. I was instantly reminded of Steve Martin in the 1979 movie “The Jerk”. If you remember the movie then you know what I’m talking about ....

Trivia Question: In the movie “The Jerk”, Steve Martin had a pet dog. What was the dog’s name?

Hunter S. Thompson
1937 - 2005


ASPEN, Colo
. - Hunter S. Thompson, the acerbic counterculture writer who popularized a new form of journalism in books like “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” fatally shot himself Sunday night at his Aspen-area home, his son said. He was 67.

“Hunter prized his privacy and we ask that his friends and admirers respect that privacy as well as that of his family,” Juan Thompson said in a statement released to the Aspen Daily News.

Pitkin County Sheriff Bob Braudis, a personal friend of Thompson, confirmed the death to the News. Sheriff’s officials did not return calls to The Associated Press late Sunday.

Click here for background on Hunter S. Thompson & “gonzo journalism”.




Godfather Of The Blogosphere

In a sense, what we do here as bloggers qualifies as “gonzo journalism”. Here is how Hunter S. Thompson described this type of writing, “I don’t get any satisfaction out of the old traditional journalist’s view - I just covered the story. I just gave it a balanced view”. A few examples of gonzo journalists are George Plimpton and P.J. O’Rourke, both favorites of mine.

Bloggers on the internet, for the most part, are merely electronic extensions of gonzo journalism. We cover news stories and try to give it a balanced view by interjecting our own feelings and sometimes our personalities into the stories. We don’t try to hide our opinions and overall it makes for a more robust coverage of daily events than the MSM can ever provide, hiddden away in their ivory towers in New York and Los Angeles.

That is why I feel that Hunter Thompson is really the Godfather of the Blogosphere. It doesn’t get any weirder than this. I regret that Hunter Thompson felt the need to take his life. He has left a measurable heritage behind though. Stay tuned.

“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”
-- Hunter S. Thompson

Innocent!

All charges against Bill Cosby have been dropped.

Authorities found insufficient evidence to support the woman’s claims, Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. said in a statement.

In other words, the fucktard bitch was lying through her teeth. In light of Cosby’s recent remarks telling black youth to get their shit together, which pissed off the NAACP and Jesse Jackasson, I wonder just how much this broad was paid by Jesse & Co. to give Cos’ a hard time to shut him up. Inquiring minds want to know!

We’re also glad you figured it out.

Outrageous!  True!  And Funny As Hell!

Chris Rock told what I consider to be the truth.

What do you want to bet that the Hollyweirdo elitists and homosexual crowd will go ape-shit demanding retractions and apologies?

Hell, he should get a “Truth Telling By A Hollywood Star” award for having said that only homosexuals watch the Oscars.  I do not understand why any self-respecting guy would waste several hours of his day watching this pap filled with self-aggrandizing statements and chock-filled with stupid commercials when he could be in the garage building something or reading the excellent articles in Playboy.

How can you argue with a man who says:

“Awards for art are f---ing idiotic.”

I can’t help but wonder though:  he gets asked to host the Academy Awards and then makes the above comment
without anything to show that he turned the host gig down.  This leads me to assume he accepted the invitation especially since the limp-wristed Hollywood set is demanding he be removed as host.  So if he accepted isn’t HE the one calling himself idiotic?

BAH!  Go read it yourself and see.  Maybe I missed something.

Just Too Weird

We’ve heard about “The Terminator” but what about “The Whizzinator?”

Apparently actor Tom Sizemore is very familiar with one of these false penises.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Other than some of these money grabbing leftist pricks are still breathing air, two things:

1. Bill Gates looks like a slob

2.  What the hell does that other moron in the leather jacket (Bono?) have to do with world economies?  He’s just a singer in a rock ‘n roll band.  And a bad band at that (at least after the first three albums) Plus he’s dressed worse than Gates.

Fucking slobs.

Anything else?

How Can We Ever Take Anyone In Hollywood Seriously?

By now I am sure you’ve read about the movement in Hollywood to get illegal aliens California licenses.

Never mind that a law was passed in 1993 prohibiting this.

So who is behind it?  Hollywood stars like Diane Keaton, Carlos Santana and “Million Dollar Baby” writer and producer Paul Haggis, the actors’ guilds and other moonbats.

They’ve even come up with a new Academy Award category:  ‘Best Nanny in a Supporting Role.’

I’m serious!!  Read about it here. You will also get information about this movement to “legalize illegals” and how it flies in the face of what we know about terrorism and the protection of this country.

You know, “open season” seems to be the most appropriate solution.  Not just for the illegals.  For these Hollyweirdo assholes.

But that’s not all.  It gets better.

Go read this article about the actual proposal to give licenses to illegals.  Simply incredible.  Here’s how these halfwit fuckatrds justify doing so: 

“(by) allow(ing) illegal immigrants to get a license as long as background checks found they had no criminal violations.”

How FUCKING STUPID are these people?  The simple fct that the illegals are here, in the US, is proof that THEY ARE ENGAGED IN ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES AND THAT, IN ITSELF, IS A CRIMINAL VIOLATION!!!!!!

FUCK!

SHIT!

PISS!!

God DAMN it!  I have a headache.

Another Old Friend Passes Away

imageJohnny Carson (1925-2005)
The King Of Late Night

LOS ANGELES - Johnny Carson, the “Tonight Show” TV host who served America a smooth nightcap of celebrity banter, droll comedy and heartland charm for 30 years, has died. He was 79. “Mr. Carson passed away peacefully early Sunday morning,” his nephew, Jeff Sotzing, told The Associated Press. “He was surrounded by his family, whose loss will be immeasurable. There will be no memorial service.”

I posted this earlier today when the news broke and I left the story as you see it above for the time being. I wanted to have time to think about Johnny and what he meant to me. I grew up watching this guy every night. In high school, I’d stay up late just to watch the fun. When I got married in 1969, my wife and I used to stay up and watch Johnny, Ed and Doc every weeknight. What made his show so attractive? Beats me. There were always funny guests and stars promoting their latest movies. It was fun and games late at night. The guests were treated as special and everyone had a shot at Johnny (which he took with good-natured charm all the time). Comedy skits with Carson as Karnak The Magnificent or Art Fern or Aunt Blabby just added to the fun. If I had to put my finger on any one thing that made the show and Johnny so much fun to watch it would have to be that it was always entertainment. If news was presented, it was always with a tongue in cheek humor. If politicians came on the show (rarely) they were carefully guided by Johnny away from political arguments. Most importantly, Johnny left the spotlight to his guests and never tried to upstage any of them. He was a one of a kind and a class act. Leno, Letterman, Conan, et al are all mere shadows of Johnny.

I guess if I had to really confess how much Johnny Carson meant to me, I’d have to simply say .... I stopped watching late night TV when he retired. There can be only one.

So long Johnny .... and thanks.

Go ahead and play it one last time ....

Another One For The S**t List

Chevy Chase just got added to my shit list.

Asshole entertainers.  What the fuck makes their voice any more important than mine on matters like this which they know so little?  If only people would realize that.  But many folks tend to glorify their celebrities and love to associate their thinking with that of those they admire.  Sort of a validation.  Stupid fucks--both of them! It’s one thing to be a star and only a star but spouting nonsense like this.  It’s another to be a star but be committed to something--like Mel Gibson and his faith.

I think y’all know what I am talking about.  If I am all wet or hypocrtical, let me know.
