Blood nougat

Have you ever tried to mop up a pool of blood? It's not easy to do. Blood is thicker than water and towels just seem to smear it around on whatever surface you're trying to clean and it drips off a towel or mop onto everything. After a day it starts to smell and by day 2 it stinks - like death - so even a little bit of blood left in the corner of your garage will fill the space with the rank smell of decay. It's one of the great failings of cinema that there is no ophactory element to violent entertainment - the stench of a summer blockbuster would have the Comic-Con nerds fleeing from the multiplex and vomiting their nachos, goobers and slushies on the mall parking lot.  No one but a Jeffery Dahmer type would be able to stand the smell of a TV in their home and forget about video games - They'd all be burned in mass demonstrations. But We the People can't smell the carnage so let's just sit back and "enjoy" it.

Blood Nougat
These are the thoughts that fill my mind this time of year - late October which means Halloween. Its a gigantic "holiday" in the USA and what used to be a spooky night of costume dress up and trick or treat mischief had morphed into a month long festival of ghoulish revelry. It's impact is felt everywhere (and by everywhere I mean everywhere) including the soft delicious nougat in my 3 Musketeers bar which has been colored blood red for "fun" and profit. How horrible it must have been to sit in on the marketing meetings for this product launch, choosing the color, writing the copy, approving the art work.

Why would anyone want to eat blood nougat? Imagine how bad it would smell if it were real blood. "Muskefears" is supposed to be... appetizing?

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
