Top Ten annoying things at the moment:
People with power over that communicate imprecisely.
Dead iPod.
Dogs in the yard.
August Weather in April.
Stepping on Cat food.
Malls as babysitters.
Not Sleeping.
The obstanance of the 3 year old mind.

Top ten things that counter those:
“Dada, I love you.”
Laying down to sleep next to the most wonderful woman there is.
Real smiles
Helping folx solve their issues.
Trees turning green.
Watching the girls learn to fly a kite.
Finishing a song, and liking it.
Titties on display everywhere (even if some of them make feel like I’m going to hell for looking….)
Completing a project on the house.

Mothers, don’t let your children grow up to be Barbies.


How Much more proof do you need to know that the American “culture” is doomed and dying? A fucking kids book about plastic surgery?

From Newsweek:

‘My Beautiful Mommy’ is aimed at kids ages four to seven and features a plastic surgeon named Dr. Michael (a musclebound superhero type) and a girl whose mother gets a tummy tuck, a nose job and breast implants. Before her surgery the mom explains that she is getting a smaller tummy: ‘You see, as I got older, my body stretched and I couldn’t fit into my clothes anymore. Dr. Michael is going to help fix that and make me feel better.’

(Try I got lazy and old. So I’ll pay someone to hack me up so that I look like something from a toy store)

Mom comes home looking like a slightly bruised Barbie doll with demure bandages on her nose and around her waist.

The text doesn’t mention the breast augmentation, but the illustrations intentionally show Mom’s breasts to be fuller and higher. ‘I tried to skirt that issue in the text itself,’ says Salzhauer. ‘The tummy lends itself to an easy explanation to the children: extra skin and can’t fit into your clothes. The breasts might be a stretch for a six-year-old.’


I’m all for elective surgery. It’s how I plan on living forever, after all. But pimping cosmetic surgery to children is just fucking ludicrous. By the time they are sixteen, they’ll be wanting boobjobs, ass implants, liposuction, and permanent makeup. All to conform to someone else’s idea of what they should look like.

It’s a horrible thing to do to a kid.

Not to be a shill

For our Corporate overlords, but I just discovered Awesomeness.
Hulu has the entire first season of “THE TICK”!!!!!!
Not the animated one, but the live action version. I, being a non TV guy, hadn’t seen this when it aired.
Damn, this is funny ass shit.

They’ve got some good stuff over there, I must confess. Sliders, Airwolf, and more.
