The US Military Feels Pretty and Witty

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

It should come as no surprise to my regular readers how I feel about DADT being repealed.

For those that have not seen any of my previous opinions on this sort of subject I will explain it briefly.


Jumping the Shark?

Monday, December 20th, 2010

I was originally going to write something about the DADT repeal, but this news story caught my attention and I felt it warranted immediate comment.

You see, I have some stories that started out with, “So I was drinking when…” , and end with various degrees of hilarity. Some make me look like a drunken clown, and others like an epic hero.

But I have absolutely nothing on a Serbian man named Dragan Stevic.

I’ve been waiting for Danzig and Shakira to do a project together.


Awesome New Book

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Many people who read this site may be familiar with a little Web Comic called Shadowgirls.  If you are not, please go ahead and take a look now.  I can wait.

It’s basically like if the Gilmore Girls were superheroes in an universe that was created by HP Lovecraft.  And the art is pretty darned good too.  It’s seriously worth checking out.

Well the nice people over at Shadowgirls are about to release a new hardcover book that has several years of the comic in it.  They currently have it on pre-order, and if you sign up now you can get it cheaper.

Also, the writer is a guy I used to work with, and he knows things.

Thanks to everyone who helped me out with this.

I Should Be A TV Producer

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

Here are my ideas for new reality TV shows. Clearly I am a genius and should be rewarded with millions of dollars and a hot tub that is filled with Cognac.  I don’t even really know why anyone would want that much Cognac, or if soaking in it is in any way a good idea, but I would certainly like one on the basis that it sounds like something insanely rich people get.

Cooking With The Troops

Monday, December 13th, 2010

So recently it was brought to my attention that sometimes people in the military put up with food that is not particularly good.

And by recently I mean “years ago, about five minutes after I in-processed” and by occasionally I mean “without end”.

And everyone knows about hospital food. I think that “not very yummy” would be an excellent starting point for how to describe things.

Now I want everyone to take a minute to think about what happens when you combine these two horribly flavors.

I’m remember my first taste of hospital food in the military. I mainly remembered thinking I was pretty sure that this is what racism must taste like.

Well a whole bunch of good people over at Cooking With The Troops decided to do something about it. They provide better food for soldiers recovering in hospitals.

From their website:
Our mission is to provide aid, comfort, and support to U.S. and Allied troops and families by providing culinary change of pace events, assisting with career transition into the food and beverage industry for those wanting it, gathering and sharing knowledge with and for troops on the front lines and supporting same, and by providing care and support on the homefront.
So I think that this is a pretty decent cause, and if this is the sort of thing that appeals to you, go ahead and check them out.

Naughty List

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

I did something bad today.

I found out about some reverend in Texas who put up a website so that his church can try to publicly shame businesses that don’t have Christian specific holiday decorations and themes. Because as we all know, failure to allow one group to totally dominate all form of discourse is basically just oppression.

They have this whole “Naughty” vs “Nice” them going on.

Grinch Alert.

I submitted my parents Synagogue, in the naughty category, for not having Christmas decorations, but still putting up decorations for the religions of other faiths.

Curious to see what happens.
