See the exploitation of my labor, as an advertising & money-grubbing supported website gets people to work for absolutely nothing, while the boss begs for money from his exclusive Pacific Palisades P.O. Box.

Friday Firesign Freak-Out

SpentWasted some time this p.m. searching, as they say,
for medication & relief.
  • County Dep't. of Public Health Points of Distribution - None near me. 
  • Other Large-Scale Sites                                                - Ditto. 
  • L.A.F.D. Sites (Walk-in)                                               - Same as above. 
  • Community Clinics - Gee-zus, this neighborhood is very underserved. 
  • Pharmacies (The only sites w/in walking/reasonable public transport distance of the bunker are pharmacies.) O.K. then; private enterprise will certainly have it handled! My ass. I doubt if any pharmacies have any supply of the vaccine, considering none of them have appointments available, & every Ralphs on some page had the same no app'ts. available at this time message.
This reporter has seen three UCLA Health croakers, at locations in downtown L.A., on La Cienega Blvd. & in Beverly Hills, but UCLA Health can only distribute vaccines in these far away & pretty white/monied areas?
This doesn't help lower the blood presure at all. Neither does hearing Joe Biden yapping about how great everything is w/ all the vaccines. Bomb some fucking Russian-backed domestic militias, Joe, & get to work on putting some of that shit in my arm.

I'll just note that as far as medication & relief go, I was able to have some powerful (& quite citrus-y) medication delivered to the front door of the bunker w/in mins. of placing an on-line order. You'd better Build Back Better than that, Biden.

Killing It Today!!

This keeps up, I'm going to be intolerable.
Some local GOP leaders fire up base with conspiracies, lies  —  A faction of local, county and state Republican officials is pushing lies, misinformation and conspiracy theories that echo those that helped inspire the violent U.S. Capitol siege, online messaging that is spreading quickly …

It's Murder I Tells Ya!

David Ignatius / Washington Post:
Biden stood up for Jamal Khashoggi.  What happened to him should never happen again.  —  President Biden has decided to “name and shame” Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, by disclosing a CIA report that says the crown prince knew about and probably ordered the operation that killed Post contributing columnist Jamal Khashoggi.
Let's cut up the Crown Prince!

Drop Out, Drop Out!

Unprecedented numbers of students have disappeared during the pandemic.  Schools are working harder than ever to find them.  —  DETROIT — Kenneth Chapman Sr. was hopeful as he navigated a hulking Detroit Public Schools van down the street, pulling up to a brick home.

Not Even Diagnosable, Just A Bored Idiot W/ Too Much Time On Her Hands

Big ol' fan of Jesus too. And therefore a total hypocrite.
She called “Jesus Christ … my lord and savior.” She called her husband “the love of my life.”

The next year, she cheated on him. According to court records, they were separated by March.

Stating in her complaint that her marriage was “irretrievably broken,” she filed for divorce in July. To lessen a noticeable overbite, she got braces in August*. Abruptly reversing course, she agreed to an attempt to reconcile with her husband in September.

The fulcrum of this evident frenzy was CrossFit. Jim Chambers told me he met Greene that year when he bought a gym, or “box,” in the industry lingo, at which she was trying to be a trainer, a part-time part of the staff. Greene, it was immediately clear to Chambers, and to anybody else who cared to notice, he told me, was engaged in extramarital activity with one trainer and then another. (Last year, The New Yorker reported that she had these affairs. This month, The Daily Mail named the two men.)

“It wasn’t being hid,” Chambers told me.

“I saw her stick her tongue down the throats” of the men, he tapped into a post on social media after Greene started running for office—screenshots of which began to ping from phone to phone of interested GOP operatives.

*Uh, Margie, you possibly steroided mutant phony, if it's so, so wrong for people to change the gender Gawd gave them, isn't it as wrong to change the teeth (or hair color) Gawd gave you?

Fuck You, California!!

I'm eligible (Apparently just on the basis of age; the robot didn't ask about co-morbidities.) & here are my fucking choices (Where are the City of Los Angeles centers, Mr. Mayor? Is this all just a fucking joke?):
Fuck your gawddamned mouth, Gov. Newsom, I'm not taking public transportation to the Forum. (Let alone 20+ fucking miles to the various other hells.) Two damn hrs. on the fucking bus (one way) & I'd be dead from the plague before I could get vaccinated. This is complete fucking bullshit, just like Newsom's bullshit program to have three meals a day from real restaurants delivered to people like me. Still fucking waiting, assholes.  

I've said before I won't leave this planet of useless shitheads w/o taking a minimum of two of you rat bastards w/ me; now it seems as every day there's further provocation. 


Local Schadenfreude: Went To Washington, Lost His Job

Moron of the Day:
A Riverside man who believes in QAnon and other conspiracy theories was arrested Thursday for participating in the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol, authorities said.

Andrew Alan Hernandez, 44, was identified by a coworker who recognized him in a news photo of rioters who stormed the Capitol in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s victory over incumbent Donald Trump in the November presidential election, according to an FBI statement filed in U.S. District Court in Washington.

Hernandez was fired from his job after his Riverside employer confronted him about wearing clothing identifying the company when he joined the mob’s violent entry into the Capitol, the FBI statement said. The company received a complaint from someone who noticed the clothing in a photo on the cover of the New York Times Magazine, according to the FBI.

"Identified by a coworker". Bet he was a popular guy at work. 

May not have been instant, but they say patience is a virtue.

One Sick Nation

I thought Trump was going to shut all these perverted fuckers down. Don't tell me that was yet another lie.

Makes one wonder if virtually all activities for young people in this shithole nation are fronts for perversion, doesn't it?

Lotta Stuff Happened On This Date

Tuesday, February 23, 2021


Current 'hood.And from a previous (almost our first in L.A.) 'hood, the Sunset Grill, which was just half a block to Sunset from the Martel Regency & then a block & a half west, past the one-time Oriental Theatre, which continued its "Always 2 Features" policy
until it closed & became the Guitar Center in 1985. 

But I was remembering the Sunset Grill, or, as it was known by the brace of Hollywood High alums w/ whom I hung in those days, Joe's, after the Hungarian (in his sixties in the late '70s) guy who, w/ his wife, ran the place. Why so yummy? Not sure. Joe would take two pre-formed patties & mush them into one w/ a roller, then sprinkle the resultant burger w/ stuff from a cup-sized shaker. So damn good I would often order another & eat it right then & there. Which, in retrospect, leads me to think it might've been a dash or two of MSG in that big shaker making it delish & still leaving one hungry. And I usually visited for Sat. breakfast, often following a Fri. more devoted to non-solid than solid consumption. Now it's a fucking gastro-pub, disgracing the Sunset Grill name. 

As far as the Kiwi Transplant's work, looks like the original to me.

De Facto Amendments Made To Dying Piece Of 18th Century Paper

What first-former-President-to-be-assassinated Trump hath wrought.

When I step back to look at the legacy of President Donald Trump, a surprising conclusion emerges: He has substantially altered the Constitution. His changes aren’t formal, of course. But his informal amendments are important. If left to stand, they threaten to make Congress an advisory body and give carte blanche to rogue presidents.

The surprising aspect of this conclusion is not that the Constitution can be informally amended. That has been the usual way of making revisions. In 1803, the Supreme Court granted itself the power to review laws and overturn them. In 1824, the states tied the electoral vote to the popular vote. Neither of those changes was inscribed on parchment or envisioned by the Founders, but today we can’t imagine our constitutional system without them.

It gets worse. May require using an incognito/in private tab, but worth it.

Nice Round Number

"Made it Ma! Top of the world!"

Maybe not that nice.
Daniel Arkin / NBC News:
The number of dead rivals the population of Atlanta or Sacramento, California.  —  The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus topped 500,000 on Sunday,according to an NBC News tally - a milestone that underscores the grave threat the virus still poses nationwide even as more Americans get vaccinated.

The coronavirus has claimed the lives of more than 2,462,000 people worldwide, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The death toll in the U.S. is the highest in the world, even though the country has less than 5 percent of the global population.

On the other hand, schadenfreude is one of my favorite emotions. (I experience few.)

You needn't actually kill him. He deserves to live in fear the remainder of his empty life. Scare him just enough he never opens his yap or appears in public again (until the subpoenas start coming).

These People Live Among You

Mental Illness, Religion, Idolatry, "Prophecy" & The Usual Fascist/White Nationalist Suspects

Perched on a cream-colored armchair, Johnny Enlow, a 61-year-old, California-based Pentecostal pastor with short-cropped gray hair, a trim beard and Tom Selleck-style mustache, looked into the camera and prophesied that Donald Trump would become president again.

Not in 2024. In 2021.

“The January 20 inauguration date doesn’t really mean anything,” Enlow said in the January 29 video, which has gotten north of 100,000 views on YouTube. According to Enlow, more than 100 other “credible” Christian prophets around the world had likewise declared that Trump, somehow, would be restored to power soon.

Indeed, Enlow was not alone out on that limb. Greg Locke, a Nashville pastor with a massive social media following, said after Trump’s loss that he would “100 percent remain president of the United States for another term.” Kat Kerr, a pink-haired preacher from Jacksonville, Florida, declared repeatedly last month that Trump had won the election “by a landslide” and that God had told her he would serve for eight years. In his video, Enlow went further. “There’s not going to be just Trump coming back,” he said. “There’s going to be at least two more Trumps that will be in office in some way.” Donald Trump, he proclaimed elsewhere, was “the primary government leader on Planet Earth.”


Yet even Brown admits these measures will go only so far, given the extent to which the evangelical church has become entwined with Trump’s strain of politics. “How did we become so politicized?” he wonders. “How did so many of us end up with an almost a cultlike devotion to a leader, compromise our ethics for a seat at the table and drape the Gospel in an American flag?”

Ethics? People who lie about the existence of a Big Damn Fairy in the Sky in order to exploit sucker-ass chumps have no fucking ethics.

Plenty more putrid ugliness & lies from morons at POLITICO.

Pharoah's House Crashes: No Power, No Heat, No Water, No Future

Must suck to be you, Texas. An entire gigantic state run by cheap, lying, greedy asshole morons who essentially want their fellow Texans dead, by freezing, dehydration, carbon mononxide poisoning or the old stand-by, the fucking plague.
Alex Samuels / The Texas Tribune:
Stop dripping your faucets: Texas officials say the state's water supply is at risk  —  After enduring multiple days of freezing temperatures and Texans dripping faucets to prevent frozen pipes from bursting, cities across the state warned Wednesday that water levels are dangerously low, and it may be unsafe to drink.

Stolen Satire

It might be illegal, but top employers from around the country, including Walmart, Amazon, Kroger, Home Depot, and FedEx have started asking interviewees the screening question: “Who won the 2020 election?” 

The corporate decision to ask such a question comes after companies realized that candidates who know how to properly process and understand reality make for much better employees.

“Basic reasoning skills are inherently beneficial when working at Kroger stores,” CEO William Rodney McMullen stated. “The last thing we want is for the employees stocking our shelves to start building a wall of canned garbanzo beans while yelling at non-white customers to ‘go back to whatever aisle they came from, and to keep out of aisle 26!'” 

Several individuals have already filed lawsuits against many of these Fortune 500 companies, but judges have yet to rule in their favor; instead, out of pity, they’ve suggested that plaintiffs file an insanity plea to help them not have to pay the legal fees during their unemployment.

Or, To Coin A Phrase, Why Bother?

'What's the Point?'  Young People's Despair Deepens as Covid-19 Crisis Drags On  —  Experts paint a grim picture of the struggle with lockdown isolation — a “mental health pandemic” that should be treated as seriously as containing the coronavirus.  —  Life seemed promising last year to Philaé Lachaux, a 22-year-old business student in France who dreamed of striking out on her own in the live music industry. But the onset of the pandemic, leading to the loss of her part-time job as a waitress, sent her back to live at her family home. Now, struggling to envision a future after months of restrictions, Ms. Lachaux says that loneliness and despair seep in at night. “I look at the ceiling, I feel a lump in my throat,” she said. “I’ve never had so many suicidal thoughts.” “The pandemic feels like a big stop in our lives,” she added. “One that puts us so low that I wonder, ‘What’s the point?’” With curfews, closures and lockdowns in European countries set to drag into the spring or even the summer, mental health professionals are growing increasingly alarmed about the deteriorating mental state of young people, who they say have been among the most badly affected by a world with a foreshortened sense of the future.
Geeze, why stretch it out another 50 yrs. (if you're lucky)? Beat the crowd, get out now.


(Sixties) Musical Notes From All Over (Southern California)

Lawyers for the founding members of the 1960s band The Turtles allege in a lawsuit filed overnight in Los Angeles that Sony Music owes royalties for sampling the group’s instrumental “Buzz Saw” in a D-Nice rap hit featured in a recent TV spot for Ford’s F-150 truck.

Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman — known as Flo & Eddie of The Turtles — contend that in 1990, Zomba Recording Corp. entered into an agreement with the duo’s company FEI for sampling use of the 1968 R&B instrumental “Buzz Saw” in “Call Me D-Nice,” a track recorded by D-Nice — the stage name of rapper, producer and DJ Derrick Jones.

Part of the agreement allegedly specified that if the D-Nice track — which was a rap hit in 1990 — were to be used in commercials, “the parties agree to negotiate a fee,” according to the suit, which states that Sony assumed the rights to Zomba and the D-Nice recording in 2011.

Sony — which has offices in Los Angeles — licensed “Call Me D-Nice” last year to Ford Motor Company for the F-150 spot, according to the lawsuit.

“Although defendant Sony entered into negotiations with Ford … for the use of the D-Nice recording in the commercial, Sony failed to negotiate with FEI in any manner whatsoever as to the fee for the commercial, as specified in the agreement, and failed to even inform FEI that a major commercial involving Ford’s F-150 truck was `in the works,”’ the suit alleges. “Sony has never contacted FEI about the commercial whatsoever.”

The Turtles allege that by “failing to negotiate with FEI with regard to the fee for the Ford commercial, Sony has breached the agreement.”

The plaintiffs are seeking at least $100,000 in damages, plus royalties allegedly owed from sales of “Call Me D-Nice” in CD and digital form.

Extra Parts

Bitch-&-moan as I did about W.K. Walthers, Inc.'s "picking" speed, they weren't lying about this
Indeed, they provided an entire front wall one-third larger than the one advertised/shown on the box.
An added bonus, considering my apprehension about putting this one together, is that I used the extra wall for a test run, & found that gluing & glazing the windows, while not the fastest process, isn't really difficult, & painting (other than the window frames & doors) isn't even necessary; just had to rub in some weathering powder. I'm pretty damn impressed w/ myself.
