Meme A Day, or Yeah, We CAN All Just Get Along

Entirely sufficient lack of asshatness fer me. Good job. Now I just need one with them clinking two beer mugs together . . .  .

Also, guaranteed to make whoever came up with this crap's head susplode in a fairly gratifying fashion ;0)

Portable Weirdness At Geek Gala October 21-23

Get yer geek on! Portable Weirdness will be at Charlotte NC's Geek Gala October 21-23, with the Usual Suspects and even more more new bling! Miles Batty will be clomping around in excellent hoofy form for book signing, questions, and really obscure fan references.

It's three days of cosplay, gaming, movies and indie shorts, art, music and talent, an all new Muggle Market, scavenger hunt, burlesque, a zombie workshop, medieval arts demonstrations, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Some of the events this weekend are free, some of them have tickets, all are worth hauling your cookies out here for.

And it goes to benefit the Dave Thomas Foundation For Adoption, so you improve your life AND someone else's by coming!

See ya there, lupDujHomwIj luteb gharghmey!

Sign Of The NY Times

Thank you, New York Times VP David McCraw, for having standards. It doesn't matter how much money you can throw at people, at some point someone is going to have the stones to tell you no, you can't have it both ways.

(looks at random spot on ceiling)  . . . please let Kasowitz be stupid and/or arrogant enough to take it to court . . . I'll clean my room and will cut swearing down by at least 6%, I promise . . . .

Meme A Day, or I'm Just Exercising My Right To Have An Opinion

Why izzit when  AggroConservatives toss off crap about how us stupid, brainless, lazy, lying, Godless, hippie slutbag immigrant Libtards are ruining the country and Rump will fix us all via any number of illegal and untenable acts, and quote "facts" that can't even stand up under the scrutiny of a myopic naked mole rat, they're "just exercising their right to their opinion", but when I say what I think, I'm "infringing on their freedom of speech" or "attacking them" or "being divisive"?

Rump isn't the disease. He's just the great big infected pustule that developed as a symptom. The disease is a social norm where all those traits are loosely packaged as cleverness, integrity, and style.

Portable No Pussy Grabbing Zone

THIS. Thank you. Make up your minds, GOoPers. You can't have it both ways.

 . . . . crap, I just said "GOoPers" and "minds", didn't I?

And some of you clowns are more upset that Rump said "pussy" than you are about the context he said it in?

Knock off the stupid, poorly constructed dodging. That "boys will be boys" crap was irresponsible bullshit centuries ago and it's not smelling any better with age.

No, it's not just locker room banter. I've always worked with guys, and been one of the guys on the clock. No, all males do not talk the same shit when no one with tits or other qualifying outsider is listening. "I'd do her", "Dat ass!" and even "hey baby, wanna climb my pole?" (cable TV job specific, dontchano) are a far cry from "I can grope you whether you want it or not and you can't do anything about it". Some of the raunchiest assholes I ever worked with would still tell any guy that said something like that to STFU.

If it was a one-off, there might, just maaaaaaybe, be a tiny bit of wiggle room here for some apology and statements about having been drunk at the time and having grown up in the interim. But it's not. It's been this cheap bitch's M.O. all along. And some of you want to hand him more power? WTAFness? And you demand that I respect your opinion and judgement?

Portable Weirdness At Lake Lure Autumn Arts & Crafts Festival

Portable Weirdness will be at Lake Lure Autumn Arts & Crafts Festival October 15-16, 2016 with the Usual Suspects and even more new bling! I'm really looking forward to this one; it'll be a new venue for us and we get to be smack in the middle of a gorgeous spot for the Blue Ridge Mountains fall color season.

 If you've never been there but the name rings a bell, Lake Lure was the filming location for most of Dirty Dancing. It really is one of those hidden gem places, and the festival looks like a great weekend of good music, awesome crafty talent, and the first real breath of welcome autumn weather. See ya there  ;0)
