Against Those Against Facts. [Fuck You Friday]

November 9th, 2012 by

It's a Fuck You Friday.I fear that language cannot fully express the relief I feel at having avoided a Mitt Romney presidency.

It pains me.

I feared catastrophe. I genuinely feared what lay ahead should Romney win.

And now that possible terrible future has blown away like ash off a table.

Relief. The slow, slow exhalation of breath.

I feel so, so glad that I don't have to see this man as the face of The United States Of America. I feel keen delight at the prospect of barely having to see this man in the news anymore, of barely ever having to see this man ever again, except in retrospect.

I am so glad that I do not have to see you anymore.

Goodbye, Mitt. You don't scare me anymore. Fuck you.

Don't let your priorities be wrong. [Fuck You Friday]

It's a Fuck You Friday.It's Friday.


And that means it's a Fuck You Friday.

Here in the USA, it is the Friday after Thanksgiving. Today is Black Friday.

What a monstrous joke.

Black Friday

Were George Orwell alive, he'd turn his face away in shame.

Consumption is a bitter joke. Can't you do something better with your one precious life?

Do something other than shopping today. Buy nothing. Do something worth doing. You can shop on the internet anytime.

But if you do go out there, be kind to the people working; this is a long day.

And hey, Black Friday? Fuck you.

Viking arrivals. [What Day Is It?]

October 9th, 2011 by

Do you know what today is?

It's October 9, and that means it's Leif Erikson Day.

Leif is credited with one of the first "discoveries" of what is now America.

And so, in his honor we present Joel Veitch's immortal (now deleted off of his site rathergood.com by fear of lawsuit) take on Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song."

With viking kittens.

Yup. You'll see; but beware... thar be auto-play ahead, matey.

"Es una cosa muy seria. Es una cosa muy seria." - combat photographer Robert Capa. ("This is a very serious business.")

Today is June 6, 2011.

It is now sixty-seven years since D-Day.

Don't forget.
