Which is more sexist?

The Dodge Charger Superbowl ad: Or the parody rebuttal: Blag Hag seems to think that by posting the rebuttal, she’s going to get yelled at by sensitive men accusing her of misandry. She also thinks that she can innoculate herself against these charges by pointing out how stupid they are, before they happen. What do …

The 4-Minute “Jupiter Menace”

This sounds way way too close to the modern end-of-the-worlders — the nutzoid chunk of the teabaggers, the conspiracy nut creationists, survivalists. Anyway, the world sure did end real good in 2000, didn’t it? 4-MINUTE JUPITER MENACE! from Everything Is Terrible! on Vimeo. “Terrifying… but you’ll never experience it.” Yup, pretty much. Though watching the …

Sarah Palin twitter poetry

Apparently Sarah Palin’s farewell speech isn’t the only poetry she’s come out with — somehow, I totally missed that she apparently wrote some Twitter poetry too. In the spirit of understanding Palin’s deep thoughts, here’s William Shatner reading them as they were obviously intended. Hat tip @AtheistDamsel.

Pat Robertson is beyond delusional

If you thought the Haiti quote was horrible, and had to be a one-time slip, here’s proof that it is entirely Robertson’s MO. Pagans and abortionists and gays and feminists and ACLU are all responsible for natural disasters. Sure. It has nothing to do with Jesus’ insane fan club. If anyone is responsible for bringing …

Some more pictures

I uploaded Teri’s photos to Picasa. I’m also in the middle of processing some images from Shannon’s camera, and I have Sam’s video of the wedding that I still need to export and crunch, though because everyone decided to stand through the ceremony proper, you won’t really get to see all that much sadly. I …

Wedding pictures

The wonderful @JSWadley and @Cyberlizard each put up picture streams (here and here), and live-tweeted the proceedings. Here are some pictures from the wedding taken by Jodi’s sister Teri. I’m working on getting my Gallery installation working, so these pics will have to whet your appetite until I manage to get it working properly. I …

Wedding day

Today, we’re getting married. Tomorrow, I might post about it. There will be videos up as soon as possible. And yes, I scheduled this post in advance, because there’s no way I’d have time otherwise. If you want to reminisce, start here. The original blog trail is also cached here. Thanks, Stephanie, for your help …

Took the words right outta my mouth

I felt the same WTF moment when I first learned the Final Fantasy game series was so messed up in being brought across the Pacific. If Angry Video Game Nerd hadn’t already said it all about the stupid sequel naming conventions that video games and movies have made seemingly ad-hoc over the years, there would …
