VIDEO: Hannah Montana Coon Repellent: Bold Yet Sassy

Having had a lot of raccoon experiences in my current house, I ended up at this video………. A must-see if you don’t mind raccoon, rednecks, and Hannah Montana body spray.

VIDEO: SHOWS: REVIEW: Todd & The Book Of Pure Evil (2010)

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Dazed and Confused meets Tales From the Crypt wrapped inside a GWAR video”

This show is one of the awesomest things I have ever witnessed on television.

Not the BEST.. But one of the awesomest.

Check out John The Canadien’s review of this show, which he watched based on my recommendation! Thanks John!

RELIGION: Catholic school fires teacher because she’s a domestic violence victim

Victim-blaming is one of the worst things about humanity.

Religion is pretty high up there, too.

Put the two together? And you end up punishing victims who dare assert their rights and speak up.

It seems the world, in general, wants you to just quietly skulk away if you are a victim.

SCIENCE: What the Cellphone Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know About Radiation Concerns

A pretty long article talking about various science studies, and the cell phone corporations’ war against science – including a copy of one of their own memos where they talk about thwarting science.

One of the best articles I’ve read on the topic.

ANTI-MEME: Actually — You Are Less Beautiful Than You Think

Remember the viral video campaign where women told painters what a they looked like, then a stranger told the same painter what the same woman looked like, and that painting was better looking than the original, and the women cried when they saw how good looking the paintings were? 

And this was supposed to prove that people were more beautiful than they thought?

Yea, it was a real nice feelgood sentiment.

But as I had commented on everyone who posted it — it didn’t prove what they said it was proving. It simply proved that people won’t talk smack about someone knowing they are on the other side of the curtain.

Well anyway — Once you dip into actual science, the opposite is true: Everyone is worse-looking than they think they are.

Sorry to burst your bubble, everyone. But truth is truth.

You also are probably not as good of a driver as you think you are.

CORPORATIONS: Wells Fargo Forecloses On Homeowner For Making Early Mortgage Payments

Of course the worst stories (like these) are disproportionately non-white people…. which makes me wonder just how deliberate this type of targeting is.

So glad I took all my money away from these assholes, and dropped it in a local credit union instead!

Everyone should follow suit.

MUSIC VIDEO: Neosignal – Planet Online (Official Video)

This is NOT a band or music I listen to.

This is a video that stands on its own awesomeness — Basically, all of the popular aspects of the internet represented as 1990s toy commercials.

Pretty awesome.

This is great. Some assembly required.

Thanks Alan M!

CARTOONS: MOVIES: The Hit Squad

An animated comedy movie? Yes!

Oh, it’s done in 8-bit style? Double yes!

And it’s about a washed up, failing 1980s synthpop band?!?!?!  Triple yes.

Must see this when it comes out!

POLICE STATE: FBI agent states all telephone calls recorded [or at least transcribed] and accessible to the US government

Stasi? KGB? Nah, just ‘Murica.

As for the various debates about if there is space to hold it all…. Of course there is, but also: Convert it to text and there’s no more space issues. There’s not a problem with archiving every word said by every person, ever. It’s audio and video that take up a lot of space.

Anyway… after the IRS just admitted it could read our email without a warrant… And after previous whistleblowing … it’s become clear that the people closer to the truth are the Big Brother Conspiracy Theorists, not the Government Apologists.

And yes, the Obama Administration has a direct hand in making things worse, not better.

Daniel H adds:

As a result of this “expanding array of theater airborne and other sensor networks,” as a 2007 Department of Defense report puts it, the Pentagon is attempting to expand its worldwide communications network, known as the Global Information Grid, to handle yottabytes (1024 bytes) of data. (A yottabyte is a septillion bytes—so large that no one has yet coined a term for the next higher magnitude.)

It needs that capacity because, according to a recent report by Cisco, global Internet traffic will quadruple from 2010 to 2015, reaching 966 exabytes per year. (A million exabytes equal a yottabyte.) In terms of scale, Eric Schmidt, Google’s former CEO, once estimated that the total of all human knowledge created from the dawn of man to 2003 totaled 5 exabytes. 
—–

This type of facility, if actually scaled up to yottabyte level, could EASILY handle all voice communication on the commercial telephone network. And this isn’t a tinfoil fantasy, it’s being built right now.

VIDEO: MOVIES: REVIEW: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 (2012)

Twilight 5: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012) -
Clint: 4/5 stars, 8/10.
Carolyn: 4/5 stars, 7.6/10.
Native ratings: 4.0/5 stars Netflix, 5.7/10 IMDB.

“Twilight sucks!”
It’s not so bad. It’s just Underworld with more romance and less action.

“It sends the wrong message to women! It’s Mormon propaganda!”
Uhhh… I watch South Park and Beavis & Butt-head and Family Guy. You think I care if a bad message is sent? My favorite horror franchise is Saw.

“The relationship is so dysfunctional! It’s a trainwreck. Why would anyone want to watch that?”
HellOOOOOOO… Dysfunctional relationships have always been great to watch! Natural Born Killers, anyone?

“Vampires that sparkle! What the fuck!”
Right… I forgot that when an idea, like vampirism, is introduced into the cinema world, that it means that any other movie using that idea should do it the exact same way. For this reason, I hate the Star Trek reboot and The Fly remake. Just kidding! The whole point of a media is for people to create different interpretations of the same concept. It’s like arguing that a metal song shouldn’t have horns. Limits are stupid.

So anyway…. Of the 5 Twilight movies, this was the best. The ending could be construed as a let-down, but this one really had the least romance and, I think the most action of any Twilight movie.

Plus, it’s over now, and that makes me happy, since it’s not the greatest franchise in the world. But it was good enough to watch all 5 movies. I think movie #2 was the worst of the 5.

POLITICS: Noam Chomsky: Obama’s Attack on Civil Liberties Has Gone Way Beyond Imagination

A great interview with a great man.

At least some people on the left can acknowledge that Obama is not really left or liberal.

The amazing part is how people just plug their fingers into their ears and pretend like none of this is real.

TV SHOWS: Help TODD AND THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL Get Animated!

SHUT UP AND GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY.

This is the best live-action supernatural comedy series to ever be made, and it’s just unacceptable to have the ending cliffhanger never resolved.

This is the logical thing to do: An animated movie to end it all.

FREEDOM: New York City bike tour bicyclers not allowed to carry hydration packs for security purposes

Further proof that every time something goes bad, we respond to it by taking away freedom.

Remember how unfair it was when the teacher punished the whole class because ONE person chewed gum?

One would hope our leaders would be more mature than that.

One would be wrong.

Another city full of docile pussies who can’t stand up for their rights, and thus get them taken away in the name of safety.

I wonder how many more bombs have to go off before pockets are declared national security hazards?

CARTOONS: Aeon Flux:The Peter Chung Interview!!!!

FUCK how did I miss this Peter Chung interview posted to LiveJournal in 2006?!?!?!  He finally talks about hating the movie, and reveals “secrets” about the original MTV 1990s animation. Good stuff.

“Q: Trevor and Aeon possess antithetical believes about state policy and political identity. Are their views reconcilable? Could you say you identify with one stance more than the other?

No, they are not reconcilable. In fact, their existence depends on the eternal struggle between their respective views. They are aware of this “dependency” on the other, and that is why they can never bring themselves to destroy the other. 

Till now, I’ve resisted stating outright how I’ve defined the relationship between Aeon and Trevor in my mind, as I preferred to let the viewer decide. However, with the movie’s shot at a definitive explanation on view, and with 10 years for viewers to make up their minds, I suppose I might as well. In spite of what people have said, their relationship is consistent and makes sense. It is not only perfectly logical, but the only way it could be. Their respective personalities define the relationship and the relationship defines their personalities. 

Once and for all– Aeon is NOT out to kill Trevor. (Where do people get this idea?) Even in the Pilot, she refrains from shooting him in the elevator.

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS: Police perform house-to-house raids in Watertown MA ripping innocent families from their homes at gunpoint

You know what’s worse than 3 people dead and 176 injured? Millions of people thinking they have constitutional rights, but finding out they actually don’t.

And a right that the government can selectively take away when it feels like it? That is not a right. At that point, it’s simply a privilege. 

Pointing a gun at somebody IS violence. This is violence against citizenry. At this point, it’s almost a collective punishment for allowing a terrorist to attack.

The worst part is how many people are lined up saying this is okay — Americans have completely and utterly forgotten what freedom is supposed to be.

They now just want a security force that keeps the maximum bodies alive, regardless of consequence to free will.

Fuck that, and Fuck Boston, city of pussies. From the great boston tea party of the 1770s to the pussydom of today, there’s no city in the country that’s pissed harder on its own legacy of freedom. 

Adding extra insult to all this? The raids made no difference. The suspect wasn’t in a house, and was found by civilian tips. The police made little difference. This was about training people to obey Big Brother.

THIN BLUE LINE: Officer who put camera in Glen Burnie High bathroom won’t be charged

In a police state, there are two sets of laws. One for “us”, and one for “them”.

If one of “us” were to install a hidden camera into a bathroom at a public high school – We’d go to jail, register as a sex offender, and possibly be forced to live under a highway overpass with no prospects for a job.

But if a cop does it?  The system protects him, gives him some kind of “punishment” so people can argue justice was served, but DOES NOT PRESS CHARGES. No sex offender registration for this seemingly-pedophile piggie.

And that’s what’s wrong with this situation, and to a further extent, this country.
