Lucky Buck!


We need more golden moments like this one.
There's a millionaire lost dog for ya.

Just a reminder:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Why 'Slumdog' needs to win the Oscar.
Queer Vows & Other Monstrosities

I have a Google blog alert for Annie Lennox. I took a look at all things Annie in this alert, and I noted a blog posting on a site I'd never seen. I decided to wander over to the hosting blog Queer Vows And Other Monstrosities, by JessieRomanticManiac to see what it was all about.

The page I landed on had this great posting on 'Why Slumdog needs to win the Oscar' and to be honest with you, I couldn't have said it better. What is said here is absolutely brilliant, and so, without further delay, take a look here.

The Phoenix from the Flames.

I have learned

I will rise

And you'll see me return

Being what I am


It's the thought that you had in a taxi cab that got left on the curb...

Suzi Orman is a Vicious. Drag. Queen.

I'm sorry.

I don't CARE that she's gay. Really.

I'm thinking Suzi is, well, a bit too grand, and terribly arrogant. Really. Everyone's good at something, and Suzi just loves taking to task, and actually ridiculing, people less fortunate in the financial realm. What's up with that? I'm sure her life as an out-lesbian wouldn't be so, well, "red-carpet" if she wasn't as vicious towards everyone. C'mon!!! She sounds like a tired old drag queen ripping someone a new one after s/he's had a few too many at Georgie's Alibi.

Hey LADY! Did you ever hear the phrase "it's not what you say but how you say it?"

Hey Suzi
Hmmmm. The Suze + The Donald.

I'm so sick.

Actually, let's do more math.

It's ok for me to call The Donald "A Prick" but I'm sure I can't call The Suze "A Cunt.'

I'd love to hear Ann "Faggot" Coulter take her to task.

I wonder if Annie C ever called anyone a 'cunt' bitch (fuck, I already defined a 'bitch' as someone who sleeps with everyone but you (faithful readers know what I'm talking about) on camera.

By the numbers|Unemployment

More than 11,000,000 people are out of work.

But what's a billion?

How 'bout a trillion.

Just numbers to some.

Reality to others.

Do the fucking math:

440,000,000 man hours PER WEEK!!!

21,120,000,000 man hours
(approx) PER YEAR!!!

Now, anyone who knows me, knows I hate math.
And I'm really not that good at it,
although I can lecture well about inverse proportions in photography.

But here's a thought:

Divide 21,120,000,000 by the number of hours, approximately, in one year (which, average for years including leap years) is somewhere around 8,766.

And you end up with:

2,409,308 YEARS.

Please prove me wrong.


Dirty Joke Alert!

Can Annie Lennox's voice get any better?


There have got to be three performances of WHY, and this is one of them.
The ARISTA performance was so moving in that her body language just really kicked it off (not to mention the shades and that absolutely shimmeringly beautiful black dress); and, right at this moment, I can't recall the other (it was that memorable!)

It kills me that her voice is so much stronger here, full of depth, resonating, and deeply felt, obviously. Can you imagine accompanying her on the keyboards? I don't think it was mixed well the night I saw her perform at The Union Palace in NYC. Still. I was THERE.

Just to be in the same room with her, let alone having a few precious seconds, perhaps over 60, to thank her, and garner her autograph (Love, Annie)

I just think the record industry is killing her in that the selections on her upcoming COLLECTION, and the additional disc for the UK, leave one with a slightly bitter taste in the mouth. Diversity? Something out of left field? It's really irritating that the UK has that extra disc. What up?

Annie Lennox can do no wrong.

Can you just imagine, for a moment, DIVA redux?

The Definition of Vulgar.
Donald Trump + Larry King.

Math with OrangeMercury
Michael Phelps + Bell Telephone

OK. Who's smoking what now?
(Honest. I can pass a drug test. REALLY!)

P-O-T-A-T-O-E. Potato.

Happy Birthday, Dan Quail.

The CNN News Loop

CNN's news loop.

The first time it's news. The second time, ad nauseum, it's yesterday's newspaper.

CNN|The Loop
AC v President Obama

The only reason President Obama said he "screwed up" is because The Coop asked him directly if he "messed up" and the President just reworded the question in his answer.

Either way, it's the only thing that's going to be on CNN today.

Founder, Habitat for Humanity Dies
Millard Fuller|1935-2009

from the Habitat for Humanity website:
Millard Fuller was a force of nature who turned a simple idea into an international organization that has helped more than 300,000 families move from deplorable housing into simple, decent homes they helped build and can afford to buy and live in,” said Jonathan Reckford, chief executive officer of Habitat for Humanity International. “The entire Habitat family mourns the loss of our founder, a true giant in the affordable housing movement. Our prayers are with the entire Fuller family.

CNN's Revolving Door Policy
Don't let it hit you in the ASS...


D.L. Hughley, one of the most popular and
recognized standup comedians on the road today...


CNN Statement:
"Miles has made many contributions to CNN over the years.
He is a terrific reporter and we wish him all the best."

CNN=Can't Nail News!

In an effort to boost sagging ratings, CNN jettisons Soledad O'Brien and Miles O'Brien (yes, they are married) in favour of the more attractive ChetZilla and CorpseRoberts, shoring up their flagship AMERICA MOURNING.

America is Mourning.
That's for sure.


CNN shutters SciTech?

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO seriously late to the prom on this one. If I hadn't had major neck surgery on December 1 (2008), I'd've probably been all over this in a major way.

I love these two quotes:

CNN spokesperson Christa Robinson
...the unit is being shuttered as the network integrates science, environment and technology reporting into the general editorial structure. "Now that the bulk of our environmental coverage is offered through the Planet in Peril franchise, which is part of the AC360 program, there is no need for a separate unit," Robinson says.
CNN Statement:
"Miles has made many contributions to CNN over the years. He is a terrific reporter and we wish him all the best."

DAMN! CNN's send-off statement has all the warmth of deep space!

Hey, Miles, here's your new mantra:

"Something wicked this way comes."

This Day in History|1962

8 of 9 planets align for the first time in 400 years.

The Earth doesn't collapse.
Or stand still.

* Illustration does not include the moon, which is considered a planet in the astrological world.

Why? Why? WHY?

Because the youngsters, and others, are stupid.fucking.faggots.

Why else?

I remember, back in the day, the "trolls" were cheering that they were rewarded for their ugliness by NOT being HIV+...considering that no one even gave them a second look, and they were rarely picked up by anyone at all.

And what's with all this effort put out to join the poz crowd?

Stupid is as stupid does.

Gay Ad Causes WaMu Failure

Washington Mutual collapse 'biggest in United States history'

A controversial gay-themed ad has claimed another institution in what is being called the biggest banking failure in American history.

ANZ's chief economist, Saul Eslake, says the bank was deemed unsound after its customers, disgusted with the advert, withdrew billions of dollars worth of deposits.

This Day in Homo History|1964
"Doll" v "Action Figure"

G.I. Joe was introduced by Hasbro at the American International Toy Fair in New York, February 1964. G.I. Joe was "America's Movable Fighting Man." This was new territory in imaginative play for boys - G.I. Joe was not a "doll" he was an "action figure."

Poking smot clouds your judgement!


Yo! Dude! Smoke it or pass it!
