Advisories

Yeah, I don't know what's up with the fonts, so here are three pieces of useful information. 



Wonderduck has finally snapped, and is blogging about gun turret psychology and associated corrective measures. His commenters take things to another level entirely. 

If I had heeded Steven's warning, I would not have wasted 4 minutes of my life. (the other 40 years is on me I'm afraid)


One other bit of advice: This, evidently, can happen...



....so take appropriate precautionary measures.

When Geniuses Blog

If you need to figure out a pun...
...in another language... 
...from graffiti...
...that's 1700 years old...
Well, you probably need to talk to Suburbanbanshee.



Wow...Just...Wow!

ACME Content Substitute

I am still pretty swamped with cramming for exams, papers and working at UPS during December. I've already worked more overtime this week than I worked straight time last week (admittedly a short week).

In lieu of content here's yet more holiday cheesecake.
Given that there was no love for the G.u.P. girls, we'll try Kannagi.



Of course...I suspect that Steven has simply out-bid me in this regard. (Link totally NSFW!)
...It is a testament to my wasted life that I never knew that about Tuesday.

The Best of Social Justice


A friend who desires NO credit for this due to fear of passive aggressive trolling and other markers of 'tolerance' sends me this link...

The Best of Social Justice is a Tumbler blog compiled by a brave or self flagellating soul who compiles posts, tweets, and chats of various  "social justice" crusaders.

It's hours of fun...or horror. But it can be useful too. For instance the fact that a prominent poster is named Lickingmuppets is one reason for me to carry a gun.

In related news: This exists...

It looks like...

...the Duck is having flashbacks...


..to that terrible tabletop session in '93.

Madness Takes it's Toll

Steven Den Beste may appear to finally have succumbed to his crippling affliction....engineers disease.

If giraffe's could speak, it would be something of a challenge, don't you think? *


Note though that he has not allowed his handicap to hold him back. Instead, he has leveraged it into a way to further motivate himself to pursue his dream....which I was quite surprised to learn is to become a LUMBERJACK! )



In these trying times it is truly inspiring to see someone who continues to pursue their ambition.


* that's why they type.

Ummm....


Could it be a commentary upon the direction of our society?

Perhaps it's a disquisition upon the ephemeral brevity of our lives?

It could be a message giving orders to those amongst us who lie in wait to do us harm.

Is it stress?

A cry for help?

..or does it represent something far stranger, the likes of which would have not been out of place in the writings of the late Charles Fort.

I must admit that I do not know.

However,  I'm pretty sure that I should be concerned by this.

Well, The Thought Was There

Bill Whittle, whose videos I link to frequently, does a very interesting podcast called The Stratosphere Lounge in which he takes questions and holds forth on a wide range of eclectic topics ranging from film to space travel to politics to history. He builds his shows around questions submitted via Facebook in a brief window before the podcast.

Well this weeks show included a question from a viewer about anime. Mr. Whittle expounded for a few minutes on why anime is not his cup of tea. This disquisition however, quickly dovetailed into glowing praise for someone who does not share his opinion on the medium. According to Mr Whittle, someone named 'Steven Den Beste' is brilliant, insightful, inspiring and ALWAYS RIGHT. Mr. Whittle spent several minutes talking about how important Mr. Den Beste's USS Clueless was in the early days of the blogosphere and what a joy it is to read the  editorials Steven still occasionally does.  After this genuinely heartfelt tribute, Whittle directed his anime attuned listeners to Mr. Den Beste's "Anime Manga...HENTAI..That's the word I'm looking for.. Hentai blog Chizumatic"


....because Steven Den Beste is just the cat's meow and if you're into that hentai stuff Chizumatic is where to find it!

While Mr. Whittle did mention as an aside that he wasn't entirely clear on the meanings of Manga, Anime & Hentai, I suspect that Steven's incoming search terms will be amusing for a bit.


UPDATE: Just to clarify: Hentai is pr0n. Chizumatic is not a hentai blog. The caption is in jest..

7 Minutes of Great Wisdom

Ask Auntie Barbazard: Cinematic Life Lessons and Observations is a new podcast that draws important life lessons from films and offers thoughtful analysis. It's surely worth 7 minutes of your time.


 It all makes SO much sense now!

The first episode gleans vital insights on prudence and propriety from Big Trouble in Little China...which gives an idea of the sorts of films being analyzed.

That's...Different

Don has a post.
Heads are exploding. 
Cause or effect?
You be the judge.

While we ponder that, I'll just leave this Miko Miko Dance selection here.


I don't think those two costumes are the regular Touhou skins. Given the detail they are really impressive

There's Been an Ubu Sighting



His June has SUCKED.

Good grief. He had a VASTLY worse run-in with Annies theologist than I did. Damn cultists. Fortunately he's alive and recovering, but its looking to be a long road.

Have There Been Any Ubu Sightings?



These young ladies are getting worried.

His last post was 13 days ago and indicated that he had taken a turn for the worse after his back surgery and been readmitted to the hospital.  I tried E-mailing him but the messages bounce back with the error message that his mailbox is full.

Genius!

In trying to cope with weapons grade stupid, Suburban Banshee has come up with the ideal wish fulfillment movie for today's burgeoning  homebody demographic.

.....if there were a Shaker version of Footloose, it would be about some crazy rebellious kid who wanted to be a 19th century couch potato. (And who also snuck off to kiss girls, probably.)


Better yet, it's a PERIOD PIECE, so she can pitch it as Downtown Abbey for NEETs.
