The Self-Aware Bully

Please, must I really feel sympathy for bullies? I can muster up pity, but sympathy is out of my reach so far.

Thousands of channels and nothing on

So much junk. So much failed ambition. It seems like even the cable channels that are set up with high purpose (hello, History/Discovery/Learning channels) immediately succumb to the lure of the lowest common denominator and turn into dreck, so where is The Sportsman Channel to go? Wait, you say, the Sportsman Channel doesn’t sound that …

Ken Ham and I agree on something

There’s this new movie coming out, Noah, by Darren Aronofsky and with a top-notch cast…and it looks like crap. I can get into a good fantasy story, but not one that takes itself so seriously and purports to be based on a true story. And you know this one is going to be peddled to …

Cheer up

I woke up this morning feeling dreadfully oogie — I might be dying, slowly, sinking into decrepitude and all that. Darn. So, anyway, I found this. Feeling slightly better.

All you need to know about the Superbowl

Seattle won the game part. The commercials were won by Coca Cola. Apparently, right wing nuts are having a meltdown over the desecration of using non-English lyrics. I don’t know why, they ought to be overjoyed to see a megacorporation cunningly using diversity and natural beauty to sell people sugar water and making patriotic music …

More Pete Seeger

Man, that guy was ahead of the curve on everything. Here he is singing about a woman’s place.

Turtle slander!

This entirely not-safe-for-work video purports to tell the true, scientifically accurate story of the Teenage Ninja Turtles. I don’t know — it seems to think all turtles are the same.

Despair at the movies

We just got back home from Twelve Years a Slave. Throughout that movie, all I could think is, “we human beings did that to other human beings? We suck.” Now how am I supposed to get to sleep with that kind of disgust for humanity on my mind? (It was still the best movie I’ve …
