HOLY CRAP!

We are actually less utterly screwed than I thought we would be this morning!




I remain deeply skeptical of Trump, but credit where it is due, he has done what most thought impossible. Whatever his flaws (and they are legion) I can, with considerable confidence, wholeheartedly and without reservation agree that by far the lesser of two evils won this election.


Hillary Clinton wasn't just singularly corrupt. She was the standard bearer for a group, a party and an self-appointed faux aristocracy that not only feels unwarranted entitlement to rule over us, but despises us with every fiber of their being. 

We're in for a rough ride as a nation. Trump quite scary in his own ways. However, there is another bright side to this; the intensity with which political correctness got a kick in the groin this morning. 


And that, at least, unambiguously rocks!


***********************

On a rather less serious note. It is infinitesimally less improbable that Takuni Yanai, is in fact a time traveller.

RWBY 4-2

There's no actual action in this episode, but a lot of stuff is established. 

Ruby keeps having nightmares about Pyrrha and keeps hearing her voice at night. 


Do you remember when the backgrounds were an afterthought if they were present at all?

We do get to see Weiss. Her family life is about what we'd come to expect. 



Our heroes reach the village they've been looking for only to find it razed. The lone survivor explains that it was bandits, followed by grimm...and expires. Ren and Nora recognize....something.



Ren and Nora's history has only been alluded to obliquely. It is known that they are both orphans and strongly implied that they are the only survivors of their village(s?).

 

This was a solidly written episode. 
This season is off to a stellar start.

Flip-Flappers

It's pretty clear from the title what this show's going to be about...

When two teenage girls trying to make it as real estate speculators in Prohibition era Chicago decide to compete for top prize in a dance contest at a local speakeasy, they manage to run afoul of the mob, some cultists, a Bolshevik plot and an inept gumshoe. Our heroines must cope with bandits, biplanes, and 10,000 bullets as they...


Wait...


That synopsis may not actually be entirely accurate. 

Good Grief! This show's title is completely misleading.

OK, I have NO idea what is going on in Flip-Flappers, and can't even make a guess as to the etymology of the title

But I kind of like it.

Good Hunting, but do Be Careful

J.C. Carlton (whose blog you should be following) has a thoughtful disquisition on the state of political discourse. Out of consideration for our readers, we'll post our quibbles below the fold and post a picture of Best Oni here. 




Because she's relevant.

Hoyt On The Election

Sarah Hoyt has thoughts on next Tuesday's Russian roulette session.


My own thoughts on the matter are that...

What?

"Oh God...Not politics PLEASE!"

Oh.

They're brief, but out of concern for those who are suffering from induced politicophobia, they are below the fold.

The Road Ahead of Us Passes into Fog

All year, there have been signs.
The rules no longer seem to apply.
Things which make the world work are breaking down.
The stars are now right for chaos to be loosed upon us all.

Now we finally have proof.
That the end times,

His tip jar is here.
