Anti-Gay Calif. Politician Cited for DUI--After Leaving Gay Bar.

The best part? This was in Sacramento, and the bar was Faces. Seriously. FACES. Anyone on my f*list who is a Sacramentan realizes how hilarious this is. I mean, who goes to Faces and doesn't expect everyone will know their business the next day? When we were 16, we knew what went on at Faces last night. But seriously folks, the nostalgia is a little crazy here. Faces was the gay bar, the Earth around which the Mercantile and the Depot circled like little moons. I never went, because my parents used to hang out there back in the day, coz the dancing was best there, and coz my mom's best friend was gay. And I thought it would be a little weird, to hang out at the gay bar your (straight) parents used to frequent.

Some days, I really, really miss my Hometown.

This is rather braw and well done: The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage: Why same-sex marriage is an American value.

Great article, idiot commenters. As per usual. The Conservative case is that Conservative =/= Fundamentalist, by which one may as well say Conservative =/= Reactionary. Necessarily.

In addition, I've been following the liveblogging of the prop. 8 trial, which is Of Interest.

Lastly, I gotsta reference [ profile] zoethe's post on Pat Robertson's Comments about Haiti, which were both horrific and unintentional comic gold: (emphasis mine)

"They were under the heel of the French, you know Napoleon the third and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said 'We will serve you if you will get us free from the prince.' True story. And so the devil said, 'Ok it’s a deal.'

Yeeeeeeeeah, I got nothin.

Call for debate on killer robots.

No really, it gets better, in a skynet sort of way:

Technology capable of distinguishing friend from foe reliably was at least 50 years away, he added.

However, he said that for the first time, US forces mentioned resolving such ethical concerns in their plans.

"Robots that can decide where to kill, who to kill and when to kill is high on all the military agendas," Professor Sharkey said at a meeting in London.

"The problem is that this is all based on artificial intelligence, and the military have a strange view of artificial intelligence based on science fiction."

Win of the day to the BBC: Best. Headline. Evar.

In my neverending devotion to lolz of various shapes and sizes...

English translations of Eastern Bloc lolcatz. ferserius.

For example:

translation: The men I’ve sent to death weigh heavily on my mind; but this burden is but a fist of straw compared to the strain of the republic.

(Note: the translations are entirely wrong, but most of the time the true translations are in the comments, and it's still bloody hilarious.)
caudelac: (splitting headache)
Huh. So I was sitting here, and all of a sudden just crashingly depressed. So I'm eating haagen daaz vanilla raspberry swirl and [ profile] vaukosigan put on Eddie Izzard, and I think that's good for everyone.

The thing about election propaganda-- you have to know your audience.

Issues, smissues. MUSICALS ftw. Via [ profile] boutell
caudelac: (eep ack and other such.)
So I was driving home today and found myself behind a souped-up red caddy-king of thing with ginormous wheels, bouncing on hydraulics. And I spotted something silver swinging down from the back, over the half-exposed undercarriage.

Oh my, what could it have been!? )

And here I thought I'd done seen every-damn-thing.
caudelac: (*dies*)
I finally found the anti-meth commercial from the 90's that had me on the floor and riveted when I was a kid. Now, I was fond of the movie Trainspotting too. With influences suchlike, well, I imagine they contributed to how and why my experiences with drugs were limited to a little grass in the high school eras. Anyway. On with teh show:

Yeah, I'll talk about real things sometime. Srsly.

Fade in on [ profile] caudelac, obsessively reading articles about Mitt Romney's speech about his Mormonism, and coming across a comparison of his speech with JFK's.

[ profile] caudelac: you know, if you just struck out the first line about communism, everything in JFK's speech could be equally applied today! Children are still starving in West Virginia, old people still can't afford to pay for their medicines, families are still forced to give up their farms, there are still too many slums, too few schools and our space program is still sucking.
[ profile] marshalmeg: This is why I don't argue no mo'. I'm gonna play my video game. *plays DS* At least video games bring entertainment and joy to all.
[ profile] caudelac: My dear, I think the best thing you could do for America is to keep making video games.
[ profile] marshalmeg: I like to consider myself a great humanitarian.

caudelac: (Amazing!)
I gave up at about skip 220, signed up for [ profile] yuletide, and looked for jobs. I had forgotten how much the internet doubles as an exercise in futility.

Vista has an annoying habit of disappearing the cursor anytime it gets near text. O' Things One Hopes Will Be Resolved in Patches.

in the meantime, let's have some memetime. Sometimes I feel like we don't know each other anymore.

2. How old are you?
3. Are you single or taken?
4. Fish?
5. Do you dream in colour?
6. Ever seen a corpse?
7. How about them hipsters?
8. How did we meet?
9. What's your philosophy on life and death?
10. If you could do anything with me, and have no one know, what would it be?
11. Do you trust the police?
12. Do you like musicals?
13. What is your fondest memory of me?
14. If you could change anything about yourself what would it be?
15. Would you cheat?
16. What are you wearing?
17. Have you ever peed in a pool?
18. Would you hide evidence for me if I asked you to?

26. Have you ever done drugs?
27. Will you post this so I can fill it out for you?

(this comes to us via [ profile] ethylamine, in case you were wondering)

Finally, in part because Psychonauts is in fact one of the best video games ever made, and Yahtzee makes me die of peeing (that means he is funny, O' best beloved), there is no win like the best win which is this win right here.

Now to go back to praying for Duke to take pity on me, and waiting for October 30th to get here and In the Cities of Coin and Spice to come out.
