I am way too sick to be up, but whatever. Because it amuses me, a thing I made.

Hipster Char.
Propose YOUR ideas for the Republican platform using the power of the tubes. (Some declogging charges may apply, as "a very high volume of Americans...speaking out right now" can make the site unavailable.)

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) "personally traveled to Washington state and discovered a Microsoft program that helped NASA map the moon."

Moon software - always a good sign! However, given how often their site is going down, I;m not ecne sure Martian software could save all these valuable American ideas.

I gotta say, I'm totally down with the idea of testing teenagers for gayness and pedophilia with porn, and then sending the "pedos" to camps where "where all pedos are rounded up and contained for life."

Also, the oil slick is totally giving us super-dolphins! Thanks, BP!

Fo(u)nd memories from my childhood I actually look forward to renewing: Are You Being Served? I should sleep, but the first season on Youtube calls out to me.

In related amusing BBC show things: On home game weekends the Uni places port-a-potties all over campus. As I was walking across a parking lot one night, I notice a caged blue light on a blue potty's roof and immediately think, "What on earth is a Tardis doing in the parking lot?"

The effect may have been ruined by the fact the port-a-potty also has "SPANKY'S" emblazoned across the side.

And by the grace of Google Image Search, I bring you the Tardis, as imagined by the Velvet Elvis Painting of Photoshop, with bonus collage.
This attitude of brazenly encouraging learned technological helplessness is exactly why I do not and never will trust Apple. They may make an aesthetic product, but if I can't open said pretty box up without fucking myself over for all eternity, then I don't want it.

Other bits from catching up on my NYT/NPR/etc. backlog:
- Marry me, Gail Collins? I clean up after myself and I make a mean curry!
- Review of Sarah Palin's book, "Going Rogue". I can only hope someone does a reading to equal those of Joe the Plumber's and Carrie Prejean's "biographies."
- Fun collection of Ramen-related memories.
- Famous authors read the funnies, via Roger Ebert. Garfield via James Joyce has a surreal quality, being so awkwardly true to its source material.

EONUS: A surreal moment, courtesy of Mississippi's gambling interests. Sorry, casinos, but the only thing I really want to know about Troy King is if he's really yet another conservative republican homophobe hypocrite.
I feel the universe should know that I have Opinions on Bibleman, and this scares me. Given that I *avoided* my Statement of Purpose just so I could watch Bibleman, this is doubly worrying.

Background to explain this chat: Due to inadvertent if hilarious mental scarring that is All My Fault, I agreed from the kindness of my heart (and because I am a sap) to bake [personal profile] katarik a cake. However, with me a gift is not just a gift. It is a joke waiting to happen.

So this thread may have been...inspiring. She can just be thankful at the time I didn't think to look for Kiss Play fanart.

i am actually more concerned that you would buy me toys and arrange them in obscene positions. )

Story of my life right here. on Twitpic
So, in an effort to make us collectively forget about their long history of public embarrassments, the Church of Scientology has unleashed a brand-new media and commerical blitz. All of them are winners, but my favorite is "Search."

One idea and four hours later, I do believe the ad has been...improved.

(Yes, I do sound that odd in real life. I am a combination of multiple accents and childhood speech therapy.)
[personal profile] arionhunter: Oh god, I think I've found the equivalent of Femslash MPreg
"When two females are in middle of sexual intercourse, if two eggs collide and complete each other, they become a healthy Fetus"
The eggs collide, like atoms in a Hadron collider!
If only we knew high-level astrophysics was really all about a way of making babies without sperm!
[personal profile] arionhunter: Did I horrify you into silence?
[personal profile] eisen: n, I was just responding to a comment on my DW about toradora.
[personal profile] arionhunter: Aww, I wanted to horrify you into silence!
[personal profile] arionhunter: *is still in love with the mental image of a fetus Hadron collider*
[personal profile] eisen: ... it's, uh. An image, yeah.
[personal profile] arionhunter: Don't you love knowing me?
[personal profile] katarik: ...
[personal profile] arionhunter: Those crazy kids and their colliding eggs
[personal profile] katarik: you are so weird.
[personal profile] arionhunter: Aww, but you love it

At [profile] brown_betty's request, Spittake Warning.

It's great to know that the real reasons gay marriage make no sense boil down to four simple obligations inherent to opposite marriage:

- Opposite marriage is really all about "the protection of females from rape, degradation, and concubinage." Furthermore, "protecting and controlling the sexuality of the child-bearing sex" is the "only true reason" for the existence of opposite marriage.
- Opposite marriage protects a society from incest and miscegenation.
- Opposite marriage ensures that "licit" sex between a couple is valued, "without social disapproval of unmarried sex--what kind of madman would seek marriage?"
- Opposite marriage "defines the end of childhood, sets a boundary between generations within the same family and between families, and establishes the rules in any given society for crossing those boundaries."

For you see, straight men suffer under this system. Suffer!
Can gay men and women be as generous as we straight men are? Will you consider us as men who love, just as you do, and not merely as homophobes or Baptists? Every day thousands of ordinary heterosexual men surrender the dream of gratifying our immediate erotic desires. Instead, heroically, resignedly, we march up the aisle with our new brides, starting out upon what that cad poet Shelley called the longest journey, attired in the chains of the kinship system--a system from which you have been spared. Imitate our self-surrender. If gay men and women could see the price that humanity--particularly the women and children among us--will pay, simply in order that a gay person can say of someone she already loves with perfect competence, "Hey, meet the missus!"--no doubt they will think again. If not, we're about to see how well humanity will do without something as basic to our existence as gravity.
Oh, the pain! The horror! Surely you can understand how hard it is for him to preserve his wife's virginity and prevent our society from a rash of twincest.

(Possibly the best bit of all this is the ad running across the bottom: Palm Springs, it appears, welcomes gay couples.

Oh GoogleAds, you are a wonderful font of ironic juxtapositions.)
I do not promise coherency. This is maybe four posts, compiled into one big "I need to sleep but I need to post" post. I promise post-finals I will scan in Mr. T and the T Force!

[personal profile] arionhunter: *just bought a book on the making of camp* I cannot wait for finals to be over
[personal profile] dingsi: *hug* stressful?
[personal profile] arionhunter: Yeah, and irritating because I have books! And I want to read them now.
[personal profile] dingsi: i know that feeling. it's like getting chocolate for easter and being expected to NOT eat it right away
[personal profile] arionhunter: Exactly!
I have a book on rhetoric and argumentation that takes on street preachers!
I know that's not sexy to everyone, but I'd hit it with a ten-foot pole.
[personal profile] dingsi: hah! I can see why


Things comics have given us that are questionable - the series "Lynch Mob." (man in the middle with the glowy fist is Lynch). The main character may or may not be a man of color whose codename is "Lynch." I do not have the time to take scans, but in the first issue Lynch's skintone considerably is darker than the white people he stands next to. The writer never clarifies Lynch's ethnicity, as they're all too busy fighting a hot anthropomorphized female computer AI in a bikini.

Then again, this imprint also gave comics "Smiley the Psychotic Button," whose first issue ends with Smiley realizing he, as a button, has no penis so he can't have dream-sex with Lady Death.
