Cold

It’s cold today here. We woke to 5F (-15C) and by 3PM it’s all the way up to 12F (-11C).

I’m gonna tell ya: Gert has the right idea.

Nice

Keep trying to be the nice ones, Dems. Your slope is waiting, well-oiled.

Click through for the whole inevitable progression. OBTW that mid-term was 2010. The Rethuglicans took over the House, and six Governors’ seats. Being nice to them was… pointless and counterproductive.

There’s no way back from this, you know.* Keep gentling us along right into a fascist state.


* – Actually there is, but only if the military takes the correct side. So, flip a coin?

This Actually Explains a Lot

Where did all the parody go?

This is why we can’t have nice things, or parody.

Surprisingly Hard to Watch

We recently watched Being the Ricardos, which was quite good on its own, and also put us in a nostalgic frame of mind about I Love Lucy.

So we got hold of the series, and I must tell you: it was a great disappointment. It’s just hard to watch.

Desi Arnaz was enormously talented and his talent is on full display. And as Ricky Ricardo, he’s married to someone who’s at least his equal*, and he treats her like an annoying teenager. He cannot tell her often enough that her role is simple and circumscribed: clean the house, cook the meals, have the babies.

I miss liking that show… but I’m glad we’re at a place now where this is our reaction to it.


* – in-character, she’s his approximate equal. In the real world, as entertainers, Lucille Ball was the equivalent of dozens of Desi Arnaz

It’s Baa-aack!

Battlebots!

Sorry – this is just a trailer

Oh man oh man let me tell you: find the episode (Season 6 Episode 1) and just watch that first battle, between SawBlaze and Minotaur.

Oh man.
