He Came Back...

Rainbow Demon restarted Coffee House Studio. I see it, yet I still don't quite believe it.

I should ask him why he did that. Hell, I should ask him why he suddenly went dark without warning or an explanation. That would be interesting...

She May Never Sing, She May Never Show...

But you don't know:


I've posted this before, though I don't remember where. Thing is, this song has a prophetic quality to it. It was released in 1991, when Mother Earth was still willing to put up with our crap. Twenty years later, I think She's just about fed up with us, and has taken up her Lose The Humans campaign in earnest.

I hope I'm wrong. But you don't know...

Randomness And Such...

I still hear things about how people on the Left who are disappointed with President Obama want to pit a more progressive candidate against him in a Democratic primary. But the only thing I've really seen in that vein lately, apart from the short-lived Draft Bernie Sanders movement, was this over at the Democratic Underground:

...Voters claim to like tough talk to a certain extent, but they also like their national leaders to at least SEEM like decent people. (Even a gargoyle like Nixon had to pretend to cry about how much he liked puppies on occasion.) Trump and Palin can't even talk about Obama without getting nasty, and both now have the highest negatives of anyone in the field. I suspect most Democrats and many Independents will feel the same way as I do--we may not always love Obama, but we would never want to do any favors for the type of people who absolutely despise him.


It was posted in late April, so it's a bit dated, but I'm in total agreement with its writer that primarying Obama next year would be a very bad move on the Dems' part. It would almost guarantee a Republican victory, something I don't want to see any time soon. But for some reason, that part doesn't seem to sink in with a number of well-intentioned progressives. I mean, we just had a really bad Republican administration for eight long, miserable years -- Obama may have disappointed us in a number of ways, but he isn't that bad. Not even close.

In fact, he's the best deal you're going to get this time around, if you're a Democrat, liberal, progressive, whatever. You may not like that, but you go with what you have to work with, not what you want to work with (sorry if that sounded too much like Donald Rumsfeld, but I don't know how else to phrase it). I've had two years plus change to see what this president can do, and, well...



BARACK OBAMA IN '12

(He'll do.)



That, and he beats the hell out of Bush...

Man, this next video is so fucking terrible, I had to put it here. Skippy thinks the band Rush is god-awful; that's what I think of Ted Nugent, especially after seeing him perform "Cat Scratch Fever" on Mike Huckabee's Fox News show, with Huckabee on bass. The funny thing is, Huckabee's part is at least watchable. Not Ted's, though...


Has Nugent's stage presence always been that embarrassing to watch? He looks like he's just jerked off successfully for the first time in his life. Sweet Jesus, is he bad...

* * *

Now, having shown that atrocity, I need to put up something good to balance things out. I'm gonna go with Earth, Wind & Fire...


Enjoy...

Show Me...

Don't tell me...


I'm a huge Rush fan, I have been since I was a teenager, and if you don't like it, you can suck my dick.

Enjoy (the song or my dick, it's your choice)...

A Few Things...

Last week, I lamented that even though Obama has released his long-form birth certificate, it wouldn't do a thing to change the opinion of the birthers. Well, I am happy to say that I was wrong: birtherism is currently in steep decline (link courtesy of skippy). Usually, I find I have given people too much credit, and it disheartens me. But once in a while, I get put in my place by these same people -- and when that happens, I like it. It's one of the reasons I'll never really give up on this blogging medium: every now and then, I win even when I lose...

* * *

Of course, I wrote that birther post in late-April. On May 1, Obama delivered a brief live announcement, saying that Osama bin Laden had been killed by a team of Navy Seals. I found out the morning of May 2.

It took a few minutes for me to process this, having long since given up hope that our military would ever find bin Laden, never mind bring him to justice. At first, I was like, "They found him?" Then, "He's dead now? Really?!" And finally, "Good riddance to human rubbish!"

I didn't go out and dance in the street or anything. But I was quite pleased with this news. I had waited nine years and eight months for bin Laden to reach his day of reckoning -- and dammit, I slept right through the motherfucker! I missed the announcement!

But that's okay. Because when you think about it, it wasn't just Americans and non-Muslims al-Qaida targeted. These Sunni zealot vermin have attacked their own Muslim brothers and sisters, too, in places like Yemen, Afghanistan, Turkey, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Allah knows where else. And bin Laden authorized all of those attacks. He deserved to die, and our Navy Seals finally had the opportunity to go out and wax that heap of shit. I'm good with this. Totally.

And now, having said all that, I have no choice but to post this, as countless other lefty bloggers have before me...





Say whatever you want about President Obama. At least he takes his role as Commander-in-Chief seriously. Which beats the hell out of that "Wanted: Dead or Alive" horseshit that chickenhawk and fake cowboy who preceded him gave us...

Lastly, I do believe y'all need a yootoob:


Cold Blood formed back in the late 60s, but I only found out about them earlier this year. I love 'em.

Enjoy -- and til further on...
