Ashley wilkes; spy


Anyone who has ever seen "The Scarlet Pimpernel" would have seen this coming.  Leslie Howard, the British actor (and Shakespeare Conspiracy theorist), was supposedly working for British Intelligence when his plane was shot down in 1943.  I believe it, I mean, why not?

If you wonder how the Germans knew who was on the flight, remember Kim Philby was running ciunter intelligence and was in the habit of burning anti-communist agents.  Leslie Howard was supposedly meeting Franco.  He was effective.  He needed to go.

Anyway, that's my theory. 

OK. Wow. last day of school


After today the Beast will be a senior in High School. Skippy will be in eighth grade. I have two sons who are out of the house and by this time next year will be losing a third.

I'm not being maudlin, but I'm not celebrating. I'm actually kind of shocked.

I've noticed that over the past couple of years I've pretty much lost interest in the things that used to turn me on. Music, exercise, politics, movies, books, even cars. Writing is an afterthought, maybe I'll post once a month, maybe not even that. I really just have nothing to say. But all that is going to change.

If I am stuck in front of this computer all day, I will post something. Even if it's just a link (not that there are any blogs anymore to link to) or a sentence, I'll post here or at Deppenapostroph (that would be the neglected "other" blog that I created for stuff I didn't want anyone to see, even though I could have just done the same thing by posting that shit here.)

Point is, now that I'm old as shit, I need to do something other than crosswords. I hate crosswords. So I'm riding bikes, back to lifting weights (except when my shoulders hurt), eating better (starting tomorrow, again) and wearing clean, lacy, undies. Oh, and trying to post garbage on the innertubes.

Forty to one I break this promise tomorrow.

hot lava - Update


Hawaii is blowing UP! Kinda cool, reminds me of when I was a kid and Kilauea erupted. I mean, Kilauea is still erupting, but it started back when I was a kid. My parents went and saw it.

Skippy, kid number four, was obsessed with volcanoes as a baby. He would watch this volcano documentary over and over, and when we were in the car, or hanging out in my office we would listen to this:

Isn't that cool? It's something they made while they were still in school. Check the eye makeup on Fred. Classic.

Anyway, RIP Rick, he had one of the best guitars out there. Listen to any live version of Mesopotamia and tell me there's only one guitar.

Google machine wins again!

The annual Holly Maddux memorial Earth Day post.


There was a significant uptick on the web this year about 'ol Ira Einhorn, the man who helped organize the first "Earth Day" and who murdered his girlfriend. That's good and all, but I don't post this every year because I think Earth Day is full of shit, I think the people behind Earth Day are full of shit.

What do I mean? Well, I think pollution is bad. I hate litter. I think graffiti is a property crime and violators should be shot. I think think the government should have some role in regulating the release of toxic substances. I don't think there's anything wrong with cleaning shit up, I also think Holly Maddux, if she had survived her relationship with the "organizers" of Earth Day would probably still be on board with the ideas behind Earth Day. I mean, I go to Church so technically, I believe in ghosts.

But I also believe that most professional "environmentalists" are actually psychotic losers with a control fetish. They want everyone to do what they want them to do, and since they aren't smart enough to start a real religion, they take something as simple as not wanting to live on a shit pile, something everyone can agree on, and turn it into a cult, complete with holidays and sacraments, and even martyrs.

Basically, like most cults, it starts as a way to get laid and turns into a business. Earth Day started as a way for a bunch of assholes to get themselves famous enough to get the hairy-leg crowd to give them organic hummers in the back of a Volkswagen. One of those assholes was completely void of any human emotion or moral character. He was probably going to kill someone someday anyway, but if he wasn't some kind of fucked-up secular saint, he wouldn't have gotten away with it for so long.

Just remember, everyone and every thing is bullshit, it's up to you to decide what bullshit to believe. Don't look at what people say, look at what they do.

If this is true we are in trouble


Is the FBI looking to find out if Trump's lawyer suppressed damaging info?

Basically, running a political campaign as someone other than a Clinton or Bush is illegal now. Get ready motherfuckers, this is going to get ugly.

Just a question


If an 18 year old is not mature enough to be allowed to purchase a gun, why the hell should anyone listen to an 18 year old's opinion on gun control?

the lesson here is


If you're pretty, you can't be smart. Does anyone think these shitheads have any idea how hypocritical they are?

No. No they don't. Because they don't know what hypocritical means, they'd have to ask a bunch of other shitheads on Reddit.
