Newsweeks' "Diana at 50": Why?


File this under shit NO ONE asked for...well, except for the Anglophile nerds...

Newsweek decided to "grace" their cover this week with a "What if" image of Princess Diana if she were alive today, walking next to her son's wife Kate Middleton. Shitty Photoshop work aside, this is just plain silly. This seems like something that Vogue, or Us Weekly, or the National Enquire would do, NOT Newsweek!

Ever wanted to see what Diana would look like at 50, holding an iPhone?


There you go. Is your life complete now?

It's a cute little piece, I guess-- if you're into this kind of thing. It's no different than putting clips of old actors into modern films or bad television commercials. Didn't think a news magazine would find this worthy. Seems to me that this is nothing but a cheap publicity stunt to sell more magazines.


"To Catch Chris Hansen": Dateline Host Caught Cheating On Camera


How the HELL do things like this happen?!

The National Enquirer set up a sting to snag the "To Catch a Predator" host with his alleged mistress, a Florida reporter named Kristyn Caddell.







They were busted at a restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton. Kristyn was also said to have been bragging to her friends about going back to Hansen's place later that night.

Oh well. No surprise with this stuff anymore. For whatever reason, he cheated on his wife of 20 years for some TV reporter in Florida. So...there you go. At least he wasn't caught fucking a 13 year old...

Mark Halperin Suspended for Calling Obama a "dick"


I saw it happen live this morning. During the intro to a discussion on President Obama's news conference about the Debt Ceiling, Scarborough jokingly asked regular contributor/author Mark Halperin to say something honest about Obama's speech. Halperin said "I thought he was a dick". Everyone was CLEARLY in shock but kind of laughing about it. The problem is that Morning Joe has had a 7-second delay since 2008 (Scarborough said "fuck" on air). There is now a new producer, who was allegedly unaware of this delay, which meant that Halperin's statement went out live:



Ooops. He's been suspended from MSNBC indefinitely. See what happens when you try to be all edgy? Michael Richards, Tracy Morgan,  Mark Halperin. Seriously dude, calling the President a "dick" on live national television...?

Dick move.

"Red State" to be released via VOD on Labor Day 2011


I've been having this conversation for a few months now. I LOVE going to movies! Unfortunately, I don't have the time to get to the theaters. As of now, there are at least 4 movies that I would love to see, but I have no idea if I will actually get to a theater to see them! Over the years, since we have seen the window between theatrical and DVD/VOD release is shrinking, it's difficult to see why the studios won't just release new films at a premium price for home viewing! Shit, I would GLADLY pay $20-$40 to watch "Super 8" or "X-Men First Class" at home!

Moments ago, Kevin Smith has announced that Lion's Gate will be releasing his new film "Red State" through VOD on Labor Day-- one month before its schedule theatrical release, which will be modeled after his Red State Tour from earlier this year (which includes his Q&A appearance).

This is a SUPER smart move. This is where it's all going, anyway. With sky-rocketing advertising and distribution costs, the coveted "Theatrical Run" is giving way to simply presenting good content-- no matter the medium! People are watching more content on their phones (coming this year in 3D), and tablets, and laptops than on their televisions. People are finding less and less time to devoting 2 hours to sitting in a theater with uncomfortable seats and loud and obnoxious people. All that matters is the content, people! Sure, there are some "event movies" that work really well in theaters on IMAX screens, and in 3D and such...but there aren't that many movies like that being made. What about all the other stuff out there that can be enjoyed just as much (and maybe more so) at home than in a theater?

It will be so great to be able to watch this at home. And I look forward to seeing other films released this way.

R.I.P. Clarence Clemons, Dead at 69


...what a bummer, man.


I actually got to meet the E Street Band almost two years ago when they performed "The River" at Madison Square Garden. While my friends and I were back stage waiting to be escorted to our seats, Mr. Clemons right by us on his golf cart, all decked out like a purple pimp-mobile. Everyone cheered his name and clapped as he rode by. That was one of the most memorable moments I had from that night. It's hard to believe that he's gone.

For some reason, when I found out that he had the stroke which ultimately lead to his death, I thought of this song-- which I haven't heard since I was a kid:




Remember this, old folks? This was back when Jackson Browne and Darryl Hanna were married. Good times (well, not for Darryl...allegedly).

Naturally, he is better known as one of the founding members of The E-Street Band. Not only did I have the chance to see them live, but Palladia is constantly playing Springsteen concerts (which my lady is loving). It's hard to imagine seeing them perform without Clarence.








R.I.P. Mr. Clemons. Maybe you could connect with my dad up there-- he always loved singing, you know...

Hey Democrats...Your Weiner's Out...



So, they did it. The Democrat's forced Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign. I have to say that while I knew this was coming, I was hoping that I was wrong. But here we are.

Ever since the election of Barack Obama, I have seen the Democrats make one dumb move after another. Don't get me wrong, I'm not blaming Barry H. for the sack-less actions of the Democrats; he can only do so much to get these idiots into shape. Could he have done a bit more? I think so. I understand some of his motivations for not kicking  his party in the ass for the sake of bipartisanship with the assholes in the Republican Party. I cannot, however, get behind this.

Again, I knew that as soon as the dick and balls shot came out (no pun intended), Weiner's would be finished. It's one thing to have a sex scandal being the talk of the town, it's another thing to have your sex scandal with visual aides. Sure, there have been FAR WORSE sex scandals out there...but none of them featured self portraits of body parts.

Yet, I have to believe that if Weiner was a Republican, his job would be secure. Why? Because say what you will about the GOP, they stick with their own. Democrats, not so much. They threw this guy under the bus as soon as they could. That more-than-likely had to do with the fact that Weiner did not have many friends on Capitol Hill. Sure, he was a harsh critic of the Republican Party...but he was equally harsh with Democrats. Rightfully so-- because the Dems have fucked up FAR TOO MANY great opportunities to get great legislation passed, and they ended up either watering it down, or blowing it completely.

The Democrats kind of remind me of my current job situation. The guy that runs my division is an okay enough fellow...but if you challenge him, or question his decisions, or actions, or motivations...or, god forbid, criticize his work...you get side-lined, ignored, and slighted. It's incredibly frustrating when you are trying to do right by your organization, but someone keeps cock-blocking you from doing your job effectively. That's what the Democrats did to Weiner, and Alan Grayson. These are guys that they need-- Democrats with balls, who can't be pushed around, who are not afraid of Republicans, and say what need to be said-- ALL FOR THE SAKE of doing their job. But...the leadership doesn't see it that way. They don't like to be criticized, especially by their own. So they decided to take the "bitch" route, and when the opportunity presented itself...they got rid of him.

This is one of the most passive-aggressive political moves I've seen. They got rid of a guy that they assumed was expendable, but turns out to be one of their most valuable and important voices. Grated, Weiner fucked up, and got himself into this situation. But for all he's done for his party and his constituents...no one had his back. How does this bode for other Democrats who are more interested in doing right by the American people, as opposed to sticking their nose up their party leaders asses?

Say what you will about the Republicans...but at least they're loyal.

"Go The Fuck To Sleep", Read by Samuel L. Jackson



By now, many of you know the children's parents book, "Go The Fuck To Sleep." As a parent, this is a brilliant concept in and of itself. What could one possibly do to improve of such brilliance? Get Samuel L. Jackson to read it.

'nuff said:




R.I.P. Marcus Eisenstein


I just found out a few moments ago that Marcus Eisenstein, the man that taught me film production in college, has passed away. I'm sorry to say that I have no idea how old he was at the time; not for nothing, but Marcus ALWAYS seemed "old" to me...but not in that crotchety, pain-in-the-ass way...but in the "I've been there, done that, and shot it on 16mm reversal stock" kind of way.

I remember my first day of "Film Production I" very well. We were all sitting down at our desks, when this old guy comes sashaying into the room. He turned around to the class and told us all point-blank: "Only 1 or 2 of you is every going to make it as filmmakers. The rest of you are just wasting your time." He was the kind of guy that taught you the bare minimum; it was up to YOU to go to him to pick his brain and learn the rest. I learned how to back-wind film in a 16mm hand-wound Bolex camera to do double exposure effects shots because of him. I also learned how to take light meter readings merely by holding a hand up to the light (I was STUNNED whenever he did that, and was HELL BENT on figuring out how he did it!).

This was the man that was so impressed by my first film, that when the Film Department's work was presented at the end of the year at the annual "Media Arts Film Festival", he got up in front of the audience and said the following (I will NEVER forget this): "I've been teaching film for a long time, and I have never seen two students that held such promise. Chuck Conyers and Doug Langway. These two guys  have made some of the best student films I've seen."

The last time I saw Marcus was on 9/11. It was a few hours after the towers fell. Since there was no way off the island at that point (all trains and tunnels and ferry's were shut down), I walked across town to Doug's apartment (he had a job near the WTC, but did not go into work that morning because he pulled an all-nighter-- talk about luck). We went to the liquor store to buy a bottle of Vodka, and on the way back to his apartment, we saw Marcus just walking around. We stopped and talked to him for a while, and when I asked him what he thought about "all this crazy shit", he just flagged his hand and said, "Eh...It's nothing new. I remember Pearl Harbor. We'll get over it-- we always do."

Marcus gave me the courage that I needed to be able to express myself the best way that I could as an artist. And for that, I will NEVER forget him.

Please take a look at the trailer for his last film, God is On Their Side (or, "God is on The Other Side", as it now appears to be called), starring Buster Poindexter as "God".

The following is the film that I remember seeing him edit a month before I had my first class with him. It's called "The Electric Chair", starring the late Victor Argo.





R.I.P. Marcus...you will be missed.

The Modeling Industry HATES Black Girls


File this one under "DUH...no shit!"

Liz Jones with The Mail Online wrote an article dealing with this so-called problem within the fashion industry. The "bombshell" came from Naomi Campbell's agent Carole White, who speaks "bluntly" about how many the European (and American-- let's make no mistake) fashion industry does not like to use black girls on the runway, or in magazines. Now, while I'm sure there are a variety of passive-aggressive reasons why this is happening (one of the excuses is that "photographers don't know how to light black skin"), the only reason is the Western and European idea of beauty is light skinned, scrawny, and...quite frankly...ugly.



Not for nothing, but...can anyone tell me what is attractive about any of those "women"? This is the stuff that they want to parade out in front of us as the ONLY image of beauty. This is basically what gay men imagine if they HAD TO fuck a woman. BMI numbers aside, these are not attractive women to me. Sure, there are some very attractive skinny girls out there-- no doubt. But I'm sorry-- the ladies that these vapid fashion fuck-tards put on display for us leaves me with a soft penis.

I feel sorry for these girls, and the girls that have to look at this shit in the magazines they buy. The fashion industry imposes such incredible bullshit on these girls-- from the bad makeup to the ugly clothes, and the horrible hair soaked in pounds of product. Why would ANY self-respecting, attractive young lady want to be a part of this?

I have a five year-old daughter who is half white and half black. She is beginning to experience what it means to have curly hair and brown skin-- people are often commenting on both. Every now and then, when she talks to me about her hair or her skin, I tell her the truth: "There are people that would do ANYTHING to have your hair AND your complexion." It's the truth! I see it every day when I go on my walk on the Christopher Street pier. You can find a sea of pale white skin laying out trying DESPERATELY to have what my daughter and I were born with. Call it copper tone, bronze, brown, tan, black-- whatever...they ALL WANT IT. Not too much, of course-- no white person wants to venture into "nigger" territory. Like Paul Mooney says, "Everyone wants to be a nigger, but they don't wanna be a nigger."

Of course, this does not go on in the fashion industry. No, they need their women to look like they've been locked in a cave with no food for 3 months before they get photographed or paraded around in horrible clothes.

On top of all that, I NEVER hear guys talk about these women! I hear guys talk about Beyonce, and Coco, and Kim Kardashian...




...no one who loves women talks about fashion runway girls.

And when it comes to these black models that impotent fashionistas don't like:











All I can say is...FUCK THE FASHION INDUSTRY.



Black Women Are Unattractive, According to THIS Asshole



This pseudo-science jackass is called Satoshi Kanazawa, a British born Japanese evolutionary psychologist who is known to have some bat-shit crazy ideas, like about how most binge drinkers are intelligent people, and how poor people are actually not intelligent at all. This time, he would like you all to believe that there is a scientific reason why he believes that black women are far less attractive than non-black women.

Believe it or not, this idiot claims that black women are not attractive because...they tend to be thicker than other women:

"What accounts for the markedly lower average level of physical attractiveness among black women? Black women are on average much heavier than nonblack women."
Wait, there's more:

"Black women are still less physically attractive than nonblack women net of BMI and intelligence. Net of intelligence, black men are significantly more physically attractive than nonblack men"
 Oh wait, there's even more!

"The only thing I can think of that might potentially explain the lower average level of physical attractiveness among black women is testosterone."
  Well, where can we begin? Let's start with mentality of the kind of person that would take it upon themselves to investigate this topic in the first place. This man was not given this topic by some organization or publication. He came up with this theory all by himself. To me, that means that he believes this garbage to be not just true...but SCIENTIFIC FACT. This is called pseudo-science. He starts with the conclusion, then works his way backward to try to justify it. He clearly thinks that black women are unattractive, and wanted to prove to the world that he is right. That's a funny thing to believe in, especially in a world that, by and large, shares the Western mentality that finds Asians, particularly the men, unattractive and unappealing.

Let me share a little light social research that I've discovered in my years of co-mingling with the human race. In talking to women that I've known, either through dating or friendship, I think it's safe to say that more than 95% of non-Asian women find Asian men unappealing-- followed closely by men of Indian descent. Now, I'm not going to go out of my way and cite things like eye shape and spacing, or hair quality, or penis size as a way to justify this number, because this is an unscientific study. The women that I've heard these opinions from had offered really no specific explanation as to why they feel this way, other than "I just don't find Asian men attractive." Fair enough-- there are people that don't find black men attractive. Hell, there are people that find white people disgusting...or Middle Eastern men to be gross...or Hispanic men to be thoroughly unappealing. People have their reasons, and their tastes, and that's all there is to it. But to try to make some kind of scientific study out of this is not only a waste of time...it's fucking stupid.

To wit, I also find it amusing that someone that looks like a troll (with that ugly mole on his face) finds it appropriate to comment about what makes a certain person unattractive. I mean, I guess he would know from "unattractive", but why point the gun at someone else?

I don't see race as an issue when it comes to physical attraction. There are some gorgeous Asian women out there, along with black, white, Hispanic, Hindi, Middle Eastern-- there are beautiful women in every ethnicity, as far as I am concerned. And there are attractive men of all different races as well-- and yes, that includes Asian men (just not that seal-faced shit stain above). There are some people out there, however, that have different opinions of racial attractiveness. That's their problem.

As for this Asian asshole, well...at least he finds black men attractive.  Which only means one thing...


GAY!

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

Tracy Morgan: Homophobe(?)


It has always been said that Tracy Morgan has a heart of gold with a nickel head. It's not that he's an idiot...he just DOES and SAYS idiotic things. He is a sweet guy that can also be horribly offensive, particularly when it comes to his stand-up performances.

I had heard about Morgan's "homophobic rant" a few days ago, but I wasn't really following it. I just pretty much chalked it up to him being stupid on stage. But now, this story has really begun to gain some traction-- especially now that his boss Tina Fey has stepped up and made a statement about his comments. That's when I decided to pay a bit more attention.

The statement that has people the most up-in-arms is what he said about how he would react if he found out his son was gay; he said he would "stab that little nigger to death". He also said things about homosexuality being a choice because "God doesn't make mistakes". He then said he didn't care if gays were offended because "if they can take a dick, they can take a joke."

Many people are comparing this to Michael Richards "nigger" explosion at some hecklers during his stand up routine. These are similar situations, but to a point. Richards was specifically addressing black hecklers, but Morgan was not speaking to anyone specifically. Other than that...just as I don't believe that Richards is a racist, I don't believe Morgan is a homophobe.

Look, Michael Richards was getting his ass handed to him by a few audience members while he was bombing on stage. What he had intended to be an edgy retort turned out to be an incredibly miscalculated, and over-all shitty decision to start calling his black critics niggers. In other words, he fucked up. He went way too far, and it turned into a disastrous situation for his career (for a little while, anyway).

Tracy Morgan was not getting heckled. He was just saying the stupid shit that he always says...but this time, he went too far. Morgan has always been an edgy comedian-- he says crazy and ignorant things about women, white people, sex, drugs, all kinds of shit. This isn't the first time he's made comments about gays either. It's just that this time, he pissed off the wrong homosexual-- a photographer named Kevin Rogers. I have to admit that I have no idea who this guy is, but his Facebook rant about Tracy Morgan's rant has become viral, and got Morgan into a bit of trouble. This has now set loose a firestorm of controversy throughout Hollywood, with people both defending and condemning him.

Like Richards, Morgan has issued an apology, claiming that he is not a hateful person, and admitted that he made some shitty jokes about homosexuals. I believe him, fully and completely-- the same way I believe how sorry Michael Richards was about his "nigger" rant. Tracy Morgan has NEVER been a P.C. comic. Most mainstream comedians who have an edgy act that touches on themes like racism and sexual orientation do so as a reflection of the ignorance that we all have to contend with in our society. I can't think of any comedian that makes jokes like this, and actually live by those words. I don't believe for a second that, for example, Louis C.K. is a pedophile, even though he has made kid-f*cking jokes. I don't believe that Chris Rock hates white people, even though he has made many striking criticisms about white folks in his act.

Sometimes comedians go way too far. That's what happened here. Now, if this Kevin Rogers person was not in the audience, who's to say that anyone would know anything about Morgan's gay jokes, other than the people in the audience that night. There are even people asking for Morgan to be fired from 30 Rock. I believe that would be going way too far as well. Just like it is HARD to work in Hollywood without encountering black folks, it is also very hard to avoid working with homosexuals. I'm sure Morgan has quite a few gay folks in his life, and may very well have made jokes like this around them. However, some people just do not connect with humor like this. And that's okay-- you can't please everyone.

I don't know if I would have laughed at these jokes if  was in the audience that night. I may have even thought at the time that the jokes were a bit much. But I would have never thought he was a homophobe. I still watch Seinfeld, by the way-- and STILL think it's Michael Richard's best work; and he was fine on the last season's Curb Your Enthusiasm.

I think it's safe to say that we all need to lighten up a bit.

Cock Shots, and the Women Who Hate Them






When people first starting using the internet for dating, there was a lot of skepticism-- particularly from women. Many people thought that only losers would use a computer to try to find dates. That wasn't the case at all...for the most part. It was always just another way to meet people-- like going to bar, or a club, or someplace like that. In some ways, it was a much better way to gauge whether or not someone was attracted to you. It was also an easy way to get to know someone before hand, as a way to break the ice and get that awkward nervousness out of the way, or to weed out the weirdos from the good ones. While all of those things were true, it proved that meeting someone on line was a much different experience than meeting someone in person. Online, you are almost hiding behind a different persona-- a representative, or avatar, of your true self. An online presence allows people to let their guard down, and do or say things that they may not be able to in public. It erases all inhibitions.

In reading through women's profiles, there was a phrase that I often saw repeated-- no matter which dating site I was on: "Please, guys...no penis pics". I always thought that was kind of odd. What idiot in their right mind would send someone unsolicited penis pictures? A lot of idiots, actually. I was shocked to discover from the women I was meeting online that on average they would get 10 penis shots per week(!). It's unbelievable, the number of these "self-portraits" that are floating around out there. Apparently, MANY guys think that seeing their dick is a selling point. The only problem is...it's not.

As a guy, I know what it's like to have a penis. I have to tell you, and a lot of you women out there will scoff at this, but it's true....having a penis is a complicated enterprise! They say that men are pigs, and it's true-- we are. We are sex-crazed idiots, with varying degrees of control; not many of us are evolved enough to know how to control our cravings. See, blood rushes to the penis to make it hard. When that happens, nothing is getting to the brain, and therefore we do some STUPID SHIT when it comes to our sexual urges.

Now granted, there is the RARE occurrence when a woman would ask you to send a picture of your dick-- for some women, they wanted to know what they were getting into upfront. Some women want their men to have a good cock-- whether they want it for a good time, or a long time. That didn't happen often AT ALL. It's as rare as a woman telling you that she really likes anal sex; you'd be better off hunting for Big Foot, or a unicorn. More often than not, you should expect a woman to not be interested.

I think it goes without saying that women and men are wired differently in many respects, especially when it comes to sex. The way to get into a woman's panties is through her mind; when or if she is ready, she will gladly put out. It doesn't take much at all for guys to get going. Now that it's summer time, for example, women are wearing less and less; loose blouses, skirts, short shorts, sandals, sun dresses...for a straight man, these are all really swell things to see! For those of us committed to our ladies, we enjoy seeing them dress like this. All we need to see is some skin and the imagination starts flowing, along with the blood. We are usually ready within moments. And if we have no outlet...its rough. It's extremely difficult to contend with a rock-hard schlong-- especially in public. When it's hard, you wanna touch it...but you can't. Well, you shouldn't-- I've had women tell me about guys that jerk off in subways and in parks (fucking gross). I saw a guy once laying on the ground in a subway passage way, jerking off in his pants to a porn magazine. The worse part of that(!) was that the passage way reeked of feces. Didn't matter to this guy-- he apparently needed to jerk off that badly.

For most of us evolved men, this goes without saying-- YOU HAVE TO CONTROL YOUR DICK! You have to-- because women are growing weary of the bullshit, fellas. You have to realize that when they want to see your shit, THEY WILL TELL YOU! Believe me, straight women love dick as much as gay guys do-- people who love dick, LOVE IT. And if you really want someone to touch it, stop acting like a depraved idiot. If you see some hot chick, take mental pictures and wait until you get home so you can jerk it like a monkey in a cage. If you really want that sexy lady online to be interested in eventually seeing your naked cock, try getting to know her first. Sure, it may mean that you have to wait a few days, or a week or two-- but it's SO WORTH IT to have a woman actually WANT to see it, and touch it!

I see these pictures of Rep. Anthony Weiner, and I can't help but be disappointed with his conduct...but I understand. When I was single, I couldn't wait to meet some chick to get to know and eventually roll around naked with. That's they key word-- WAIT. Especially this day and age, when all the porn you could ever want is available ANY TIME YOU NEED IT! You don't need to creep out some unsuspecting woman with your animal urges, when you can get off in the comfort of your own home. Hell, if you need to, take a sick day and jerk off the whole time. And leave the cameras alone while you're doing it; you're wasting good stroke time fiddling with a camera shutter.

So that's it, guys. Women will let you know when they want to see it. You just have to be more patient, and have more control. Otherwise, you're just some creepy weirdo that will insure that no one but yourself will touch your dick for a VERY LONG TIME. And you don't want that, do you?

Rush Limbaugh: Closeted Homosexual?



Everyone has been attacking Rep. Anthony Weiner (D) and his stupid sex scandal. Of course, Rush Limbaugh has been having a FIELD DAY with this stuff. Funny thing, considering that he himself was involved in a sex scandal, of sorts. On his radio show today, while busting Weiner's balls, a caller asked Limbaugh about something that happened to him a few years ago...and Rush was MAD!!!

In 2006, Limbaugh was detained by US Customs for holding a bottle of Viagra on his way back from the Dominican Republic. For those of you who don't know, the Dominican Republic is known for sexual tourism:


"There is always a demand for sex," said one Dominican prostitute as she lounged at one of the town's waterfront bars. "Men will always pay for it, especially in here ... where they can get anything they want at a discount." 

Indeed, the Dominican Republic is one of the biggest sex tourism destinations in the world, thanks in part to Internet sites that extol the country as a "single man's paradise."





Ass, ass everywhere! Naturally, a man of Rush's age would need a little extra boost to properly perform. Yes, these images feature women in an article calling out Limbaugh's hidden gayness-- but this was the first thing that I found when I Googled "DR adult travel". My point is that Limbaugh denies having anything to do with sexual tourism-- and is calling the allegations "internet lies"...but if you're caught bringing back a bottle of Viagra from the Dominican Republic, by yourself...well, 2+2=4.

Speaking of "Googling", I also entered "Rush Limbaugh gay", and got a shit-ton of articles. There is a lot of speculation as to whether or not Limbaugh is gay. There is the fact that he has been a raging drug addict for decades. There's also the fact that he has been married 4 times; he and his third wife lived in different homes (allegedly, she was paid a lot of money to keep his homosexuality and love of child porn a secret-- they also allegedly did not have sex), and Elton John performed at his 4th wedding (hell-oooooooo!!!).  Interestingly, Limbaugh had gone by the name Jeff Christie in the 70s while working for a radio station in Pittsburg.

Now, do any of these things spell "gay"? Eh...some of it is suspect. Getting defensive about his Viagra arrest is definitely interesting. I mean, I guess that's to be expected; this asshole operates the best by condemning others and ignoring his own flaws. Even if he is gay, he is one of those people that would take it to the grave; he's THAT full of shit. I speculate that he'll probably get another divorce, unless he writes his current wife a big check to stick around.

The point is, when a m'fer like this is living in glass house full of priceless china, slinging rocks around...something is bound to break.

Wii U



Today at the E3 conference, Nintendo has announced their new follow-up console for the Wii called "Wii U". I have to say, after hearing and reading about all the speculation about what this new system would be, I had no idea what to really expect. The only thing I did know is that whatever it was, it would be truly impressive. Ho-lee-shite, man...THIS thing is impressive! Once again, Nintendo has revolutionized the gaming industry!

Check this out:




Are these m'f'ers smart, or what?! TABLET COMPUTING on a home console! It's basically converting an iPad into a video game console controller! You can use the new controller in tandem with the Wii U console, OR use it independently-- like holding the controller and the monitor in your hands! And this controller is insane-- gyroscope, accelerometer, camera, rumble AND touchscreen! There are such a variety of game play options, it really is like nothing you've ever played before!

There wasn't really much info available during the presentation regarding tech specs for the system. From what I've read on IGN, the Wii U hardware will be more powerful that the PS3 and XBox 360! Very exciting, man...! Not to mention that the system will be backwards-compatible, all the way to Game Cube!

 So, I guess this means that Microsoft and Sony will be scrambling to add some kind of tablet interface to their systems. I know they will, especially since both of these companies were sure that "Motion Control" was some silly gimmick that would never catch on. Just goes to show-- don't underestimate a company that has been making games since before ANY OF US was born!


I've gotta start saving now. I KNOW my daughter will want this (and so will Dad!).

Weiner's Weiner



As politicians go, Anthony Weiner (D)-NY is one of the good ones. For those of you that follow politics, he is known as a firey defender of liberal policies; very smart, very passionate, blunt, direct, no-nonsense. This is how many people knew of Mr. Weiner's work:







Good stuff, huh? He's one of the FEW Democrats/liberals/progressives out there that have courage and conviction and the ability to tear ass when he needs to. In short, the man has balls. As of last week, however...it seems as if his balls may be the thing he may be the only thing he is known for. There is a picture floating around that was apparently sent to a 21 year-old woman that may, or may not, be a picture of Tony's junk:



There it is. Talk about left-leaning (badum-bum).

But seriously, folks-- this was a major news item for about a week and a half. When asked about the picture, his response has been...well, a bit flacid. He said that he wasn't sure if it was him in the picture. Really? That's your response to this, Tony? You're not sure it was you? I hate to say it, but that is Palin-stupid.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here. I think it is him. I think that he snapped a pic of his dick, and sent it to his wife. Somehow, whether it was via hackers or brain-fart on his part, this image got out. And now that it's out there, I'm sure he is incredibly embarrassed. When confronted by the press, however, I think he just didn't really know what to say or how to handle it.

So the man took a picture of his shit while he was wearing his undies. So. Fucking. What. Really, who the hell cares?! He is a human being, being human. He and his wife may very well have this kind of relationship with each other-- and that kinda makes him more endearing! I doubt that he's fucking some other chick. I can, however, totally buy the fact that there are hackers out there that do some phreaky stuff, and got a hold of this image to play a prank. It's kind of a bummer to have your privacy invaded like this. Especially when it comes to something this personal.

Even Fox News boss man Roger Ailes thinks the coverage of this story is a bit much:

"The media's had enough giggles over Mr. Weiner and his name," Ailes says. "Sometimes the families take a bigger hit than the person that people are trying to destroy."
 Hopefully, people will forget about this garbage and get on with their lives. That is, until people see this:


Be careful, Rep. Weiner...your pussy's showing.

UPDATE #1:

Rep. Weiner has just held a press conference announcing that he did, in fact, Tweet that picture of his junk to the young woman in question. It wasn't for his wife, and his account wasn't hacked-- it was all Weiner.

“I regret not being honest about this...I was embarrassed, I was humiliated. I was trying to protect my wife. I was trying to protect myself from shame.”
 Goddamn it. I really fucking hate to see this bullshit. I guess this is why the answer/excuse he made was so ridiculous. What we have here is another man thinking with his dick, and doing some stupid shit. I mean, come the fuck on!

Look it-- I work in New York City. SoHo, to be exact. The are some good-looking women walking around here, man. Hell, this is New York, so there are TONS of hotties walking around ALL THE TIME-- all different races, ethnicities, blondes, brunettes, redheads, black, white, Asian, Hispanic-- this town is mad with fly honey's! I see this, and that's all I do; I don't act on it! Aside from the fact that I go home to a drop-dead gorgeous woman every day, I just don't have the energy to react to every good-looking woman I see.

Why, WHY do these fucking men insist on letting their dicks do their thinking?! If I happen to see some woman that is mind-numbingly sexy or hot (rare because, once again, my lady is hot and sexy enough-- probably more than I deserve), I'll look...but that's it. For example, that stupid Tron: Legacy movie that just came out had Olivia Wilde in a black, skin-tight outfit. Yes, Olivia Wilde is a good-looking woman...but I looked at her and all I could do is wonder what my lady would look like in that outfit:


In fact, I'm STILL interested in seeing my lady in this. But I digress.

Fellas...STOP TAKING YOUR WOMEN FOR GRANTED!!!!! You don't have to chase every piece of ass you see!!! In fact, once your married, or attached, or committed-- whatever you want to call it-- YOU GET NO MORE STRAY PUSSY! They ONLY pussy you get is your lady's. THAT'S IT!!!!

I love women. Love the vagina. I like the way it looks, the way it tastes, the way it makes my weiner feel when it's inside...all that good stuff. And when I decided to be with my lady, THAT'S  IT FOR ME! I can't see myself chasing after some other lady, particularly when I consider what my lady means to me. How could you betray someone that loves you like that?!

Sigh. Whatever. He's not the first, and won't be the last dumb-ass to do something like this. I guess the bright spot is that Rep. Weiner at LEAST didn't fuck the girl he tweeted his dick to.

At least, I don't think he did.............

UPDATE #2:

For the last couple of days now, Conservative douche-nugget Andrew Breitbart, who was the first person to break the story about Weiner's weiner, has claimed to have an X-rated pic of the Representative. He said that he was holding onto it for "insurance purposes", being very coy about whether or not he would release it. Well, guess what happened?


As blurry as a big foot photo, there it is. I could spend a few paragraphs talking about what a passive-aggressive pussy Breitbart is for allowing O&A to do his dirty work; he was on their show today, and let them see the pic from his computer. And that's all she wrote for Rep. Anthony Weiner (D). Now that his dick and balls are out in the open, his career is over.

I've actually been defending this guy for the last couple of days, saying that he shouldn't resign. Now, upon seeing his erect penis and dangling sack....yeah, maybe it's time for him to go. What the fuck, dude?! WHY? I know I'm sounding like a broken record at this point, but I HATE seeing a guy that I liked in the political world throw his life away because he wanted to show off his cock to a bunch of chicks! Sure, this isn't as bad as what John Edwards did, or George Rekkers, or Mark Sanford, or Larry Craig, or Gary Hart, or Bill Clinton, or Mark Foley, or any of the others that got caught with their pants down. This is equally as stupid and irresponsible. And now, we ALL have to step away from this guy.

R.I.P. Rep. Weiner's career. Hey, we'll always have those YouTube clips....

Sarah Palin V. History


GOP MILF Sarah Palin's latest brain-fart pits her against the famous ride of Paul Revere. Have you seen this yet?



I've never had a problem with calling this woman an idiot. Because she IS. How could anyone flub this? How could anyone mistake what Paul Revere was doing? Could it be that she is just as clumsy with the English language as George W. Bush was? Was she nervous? Was she confused? SHOULD she be any of those things, if she plans on running for President? I say no.

I think people are being way too polite and P.C. about this. This fuck-tard has no business seeking public office. Every time she opens her mouth she manages to say something that makes her look stupider than the last time she said something stupid.

It's just so tiring-- not only for her idiotic answers to easy questions, but her defense of the idiocy. She claims that it's-- wait for it-- the MEDIA that made her look bad.

"Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there. That, hey, you're not going to succeed. You're not going to take American arms. You are not going to beat our own well-armed persons, individual, private militia that we have," she added. "He did warn the British."

You see? It's that damn "media", once again, getting in the way of unqualified, incompetent people.

Fucking moron....
