#TrainwreckGottaGoParty

Far be it for the KOTCB to take issue with anyone mocking Beyonce and her Formation video but it is hitleryarious that Amy Schumer should be kicked out of the "entertainment" world for doing so. What with the long list of transgressions against decency and taste this stupid video parody has launched the #AmySchumerGottaGoParty. Amazing how the world turns and how fine the line between Feminist Hero and Racist can be.
"She’s been accused in the past for telling racist jokes, implying that black men are more sexually aggressive than others, and exploiting black women in her comedy. Some people (including Schumer herself) chalk up much of the criticism to internet call-out culture and political correctness. And though she’s seen as a feminist hero for many, the fact that the #AmySchumerGottaGoParty started trending at all is a huge indication that there’s still a large disconnect between Schumer and black women. Maybe in the future she’ll think of another, less tone deaf way to pay homage to King Bey."
Don't mess with The Shady Ghost in the Machine Amy Schumer because not even cousin Chuck can get you out of the hole if you piss it off. It don't care what you think or what the justification for your actions might be - grovel NOW or face the consequences of your disrespect. You think you can just ride your white privilege right on up to the awards stage and take home the fame and money but you will find yourself knocked off that high-horse and wallowing in the mud like a drunken whore if you don't get your mind right - and I mean right now. This is the world you made so live with it.

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 viewershi…

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

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 audience (he calls them "…

New York Values

“Global Reach :30” CME Group—Commercial Spot from VSA Partners on Vimeo.

Don't mind me, I'm just going to use the island of Manhattan as my own personal driving range. I'm  in the futures and derivatives game and you never know what's going to happen. "Opportunities aren't always obvious" as I like to say and they "drop in" unexpectedly.


Sometimes it works out great.

Other times...


And those poor souls with a lump on their head don't like the game or putting the driving range on top of the Pan Am building. Last nights election was a long par 5 for the Constitutional Monarchist in this years election and he shot a triple bogey. One of the reasons:
"Unsurprisingly, it was Bernie Sanders who won the vast majority of the anti-Wall-Street Democratic vote." New York Democrats are crazy, but a majority of them are not dumb (in truth, a lot of the dumb ones have emigrated to Vermont) so while they'll flirt with "revolution" wh…
