Batman's Birthday Returns

By Batman's cape, link below worked before. This link sez Batcave Opens for display on Batman's birthday with all kinds of Batgoodies, for a limited Battime in a Batcave near you.

Sorry, just could not resist for Batman, for me and many of my age, meant not seven and counting versions of movies of uneven quality--c'mon, "Batman and Robin," bit the Bat One. I spoke the obvious line before Dick "Twerp" Grayson said it, "Holy hockey players from hell, Batman."--but meant the 60's TV show, cool for boys in that era.

Now, it still is kewl, but as an adult of this era, might call it camp.

Watch an old episode or three; revel in the simplicity of a bygone era. Kapow indeed!

Plus the show had a great run of guest stars as guest villians; for me, Frank Gorshin will ever be the best Riddler. Keep your Jim Carrey; in fact, the latter's version blows Batchunks.

Evidently, comic book Batman has a few dates we can ascribe for his birthday. This allows me to celebrate them all.

John Stewart Kickstarter Campaign

The irrepresible scamp John Stewart, political gadfly and dreamer, recently speculated on ramifications of a Rupert Murdoch consumating a deal to buy Time Warner.

Stewart speculated on what properties Mudoch might have to divest, thinking perhaps CNN might have to get auctioned off.

Enter a Stewart Kickstarter cammpaign: Let's Buy CNN

No word on whether Stewart will contribue a million dollars to the cause.

Government CAN!

Government can, can land men on the moon. Yesterday, July 21, marked the 45th anniversary of the lunar landing of 2 men.

NASA, a government agency, marshalled the engineering power of a nation; the National Aeronautics and Space Administration gave myriads of contracts to the lowest bidder and, working to a common goal and with set standards accomplished an engineering feat which ranks among the greatest of human history. The placque and flag on the moon will not weather; they may well outlast the pyramids as markers of the human race at our best.

All the accoutrements of modern times--the ubiquitous cell phones, velcro, transistors, the inter-Damn-net--came from the space program. "Modern" numbnuts know nothing numbskulls, having starved NASA of funds necessary to forge ahead in space explroration, now say NASA cannot meet any g als.

To that, I say piffle. Even if the Republican'ts, the do nothing party, filibuster family, party of treason, children of the space race, even though they have forgotten that very same space race, I say yes we can. We could accomplish great things if we work together.

Yes we can!

Where Will It End? Goddess Only Knows.

News outlets reported that starting in October a female will fufill the role of Thor, Norse god of thunder, heretofore filled by a man, Thor Odinson.

Fox newscasters lost their minds, complaining this a threat to marriage and traditional gender roles while the universe said, "Hell yeah," and Goddess sez maybe I can finally get help folding wash.

The female Thor will of course get 75% the pay of male demigods, have contreception coverage stripped from Asgardian health insurance, and get no paid paternity leave, which leaves foreign goddesses snickering behind our female gods faces, especially that mouthy bitch Kali except our female Thor would totally kick Kali's ass.

Republicans came out behind female goddesses, as long as they don't get all bitchy and whine about human rights.

Germany 0-2 in World Wars

Germany has just won a 4th World Cup, four out of the 20 held. Kudos to the club and hordes of blonde, long limbed, lingerie model girl friends.

Germany also stands 0 for 2 in World Wars.

Yeah World!

(UnderConstruction)Springsteen, Relevant Again

Haven't listened to Springsteen in years, leaving him behind with the rest of my dreams in the 1980's about my success and finding a love like my first, Wendy Hall.

But life and failure and disapointment and reality reared their ugly heads, carrying me to Meggido all just broken, bare bones.

Then monthly Samaritans brought Bruce's new album, and it kicked me in the balls.

From first tune on the album, the title tune "High Hope," it reached out and grabbed. They amplified a Bo Diddly beat to make a song of a shred of hope amongst despair. The song had an actual bottom end, the kind a subwoofer would use to shake my sternum and piss off the neighbors.

YEAH! Rock and freaking roll!

The addition of Tom Morello-the Nightwatchman and also Rage against the Machine guitarist-- gave the album a harder edge, mostly. If you've seen Tom and Bruce do "Ghost of Tom Joad" on R & R Hall of Fame you might know what the album feels like.

Even the ballads have an edge. @"American Skin" first recorded over a decade ago recounts the true story of Amadou Diallo, shot at 41 times by police officersn stoop. The 4 officers only managed to hit him 19 times.

:hat sufficed to end Diallo's life.

Latin Lesson for Today

The Latin lesson for today comes courtesy of Betty Fokker--The Stay at Home Feminist Mom, and once a student at Univ of Kentucky who actually learned something--regaling us with tale of thunder douche Brandon Smith who opened his mouth and removed all doubt of his status as a moronic Asshat.

Betty gave us this Latin witticism describing Republicans talking about science: "Nas Potest Conine Rectums Copat, We fit our heads up our rectums."

'Nuff said.

Daily Episode of as the LeBron Turns

Pat Riley, ruthless thug, met yesterday in Las Vegas w/ Lebron James and Dewayne Wade and....

It doesn't matter because the three have failed to analyze their recent ignominious loss and draw the obvious conclusion: even 3 superstars need role players to play well. Even Dauphin A'bron James can't carry a team on his own forever, or at least 4 finals in a row.

Latest reports have Chris "can't block out" Bosh soliciting offers from the Houston Rockets for at or near max salary. That makes me chortle with glee as man not worth a Happy Meal. He should never get a max contract. Heat beat Pacers in part because latter the softest 7 footer alive Roy Hibbert. In the dictionary definitions of soft and softer, you'll see pictures of Bosh and Hibbert.

Great Naismith's ghost, how can Bosh keep finding crack smoking general managers to over pay him?

Even more amusing? That Cleveland has traded away their entire roster and every asset the dump has: city hall, polluted Lake Erie, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, plus the nouveau riche owner will grovel on his knees and seek forgiveness for his online rant when LeLoser left Cleveland.

Screw the Heat; I'm an Orlando Magic fan.

On that front, we either have Magic headed by design for a 60 loss season and more balls in the hopper attempting to get top pick next year or have assembled a young, scrappy team who all hate to lose and have athletic talent.

They'll lose a lot but play hard. I'll settle for that.

Glenn Beck Concedes to Liberals

Why do I let it bother me about neo-coservatives: their sheer arrogance, unmitigated gall, refusal to admit error and take responsibility, their their (splutter, gag, words failing...) chutzpah?

When such a chickenhawk chickenshit cheerleader for war as Glenn Beck has a come to Jesus moment and admits the hippy liberals' criticism of President Cheney 's Iraq war correct, you'd think the neocon nincompoops who got literally everything wrong would at least slink off to their crypts and shut the fuck up. STFU!


Undead vampire ex Presidente Dick Cheney rises from his crypt, licks blood from his fangs and blames Obama, echoed by a tragic Greek chorus of fools: L. Paul Bremer (the man who put the armed Iraqi armed forces and police out of work), the once and still would be king of Iraq Ahmed Chalabi, and Douglas Feith (the stupidest fucking guy on the planet, and Zalmay Khalilzad, among others.

Now these fools and western media point solely to religion as cause for these wars, ignoring decades of coexistence of Shia with Sunni as described inSalam Pax's blog.

We forget at our peril how certain evildoers manipulate and pervert religions to their own ends, to procure and hold onto power like Al Maliki, current Iraqi prime minister but once a butcher shop owner in exile in Egypt picked by Khalizay to run Iraq. Google the Harper's article; I'm sore tired typing out hrefs.

Read truth there and recounted by Robert Fisk at the London Independent.

Then read Chalmers Johnson views on the decline of Empire America, wasting blood and treasure on vain attempts to control oil.

Blood, so much blood, I weep.

No wonder I just speak English.
