Hell in a Handbasket

...no this is not about current events, and in fact is a happy post!

James R. Rummel's excellent Hell in a Handbasket is back.  WEell, it has been for a while it seems, but this is pleasant news to me. 

You see, some time ago he had posted to the effect that he was giving up on blogging, but it appears that he changed his mind.

IRL, he teaches a pro-bono firearms safety class  for people of limited means who have been the victims of violent crime. Mr. Rummel blogs primarily on self defense with a focus on personal protection issues facing the elderly, handicapped, weak and poor. though he does occasionally opine on history, pets, and the junction between gun safety and art criticism

The Duck is Dark

For those who might be wondering, I have received word via text that the reason that Wonderduck has gone silent is that he has has been without internet service for over three days. There is no indication of when it might be back as his provider is, apparently, up to no good.

That's It: : Game Over

Pete wins...


He's had his very own "Blog-musume" for 6 years now.

Still Scarce

   I have a big exam on Monday so the next two days will entail cramming and sleep (the latter being a very important component of test preparation that I frequently forget).

 

In the meantime a quick perusal of the interwebs  reveals several bloggers who actually have taken the time to provide content over the last several days.

 

Medieval Otaku gets in touch with his inner his Edith Hamilton to discuss the Oresteian influences in Kill-La-Kill.

 

Don has one of the two blogs whose embeds are invisible to me on Epic, so I very nearly missed his latest post, which I had initially taken to be a formatting error. That would have been tragic as I would have missed this gem, which shows that these kids today still have an appreciation of the classics. (There is a side by side comparison here.)

Borepatch alerts us to this comprehensively insightful and profanity laced analysis of dubstepby Foamy the Squirrel. Testify!

Observing us from his secret headquarters in Australia with a mixture of bemusement and horror Pixy seems to have come up with the line of the week…

 

 The Hillary poster in particular seems to come from some weird alternate universe in which Eva Peron was an admiral of the Imperial Japanese navy.

…which has, in turn spawned further discussion.

Heretefore I had thought the term "twintails" meant something entirely different from this.


Now I know better.

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...

more...

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.

The particular years she chose to focus on are 2008-2012.

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
