One Hears A Lot About ...

...people drowning in their own vomit. Plenty of people I'd like to see drown in my damn vomit.Points for all original band members, even after 45 yrs.

Don't Be A Martyr!

Warning to students: The police are fascist thugs who want to kill you. Arm & defend yourselves before it's too late!!

P.S.: Students who aren't protesting are chickenshit assholes who should be shot. Let them see what it's like on the receiving end.
P.P.S.: If being against genocide is "anti-Semitic", that doesn't say too much about this "Semitism" thing, does it? I'm thinking the "Gawd of Abraham" & his flunkies Moses, Jesus, & Muhammad can all go fuck themselves, good & hard.

(Barely 400 views after six hrs.? Obviously too smart for the crowd there.)
Never did, never will, & you couldn't make me if you tried. What a horrible world you bitches & the sons thereof have made, that I should be so completely, absolutely & totally alienated from it & everyone in it. Fuck alla y'all!!

Big Bamboo

Why, Indeed ...

... do I bother? The whole mess was over when it became possible for the average lump of undifferentiated tissue to point a camera at itself & start spewing its stream of unconsciousness & idiocy. Currently only 99+% of you are fuckheaded idiots, but the hideous spawn of today's cretinous youth will be 100% post-literate & sub-human.

Gov. Noem's Dog Sings A Sad Song

Deliberate cold-blooded murder.
 Martin Pengelly / The Guardian:
Trump VP contender Kristi Noem writes of killing dog - and goat - in new book  —  South Dakota governor includes bloody tale in campaign volume - and admits 'a better politician ... wouldn't tell the story here'  —  In 1952, as a Republican candidate for vice-president …
No canine adoption services in SoDak? Killed a goat because it smelled? Woman's beyond sick.

Kern County Today: Knives, Guns, Drugs, Sex Crime, Politics & Divorce

Remember the good old days when our rural representatives confined their perversion to barnyard animals?
Kern County Supervisor Zack Scrivner is being investigated for allegedly sexually assaulting one of his four children, according to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Donny Youngblood said in a news conference Thursday that he received a call from Dist. Atty. Cynthia Zimmer — Scrivner’s aunt — Tuesday night, saying that Scrivner was armed and appeared to be having “some type of psychotic episode” at his home in Tehachapi. Zimmer then called Youngblood back to notify him that Scrivner was no longer armed.

“We were responding to what we believed at the time was a suicidal person having a psychotic episode, not any crime,” Youngblood said.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they secured the firearm. They found that Scrivner had a physical altercation with his children and was stabbed twice in the upper torso over allegations that he had sexually assaulted one of his children, Youngblood said. His injuries were non-life-threatening, he added.

Scrivner’s four children, who are minors, and his parents were at the house at the time of the incident, Youngblood said. His wife, Christina, who filed for divorce in March, was not present.

“Child was protecting other child from what he believed occurred,” Youngblood said in describing the incident.

Detectives obtained a search warrant and seized 30 firearms, psychedelic mushrooms, electronic devices and possible evidence of sexual assault in the house, he said.

Scrivner’s attorney, H.A. Sala of Bakersfield, told the TV news station KGET 17 that the allegations of sexual assault are not true and that Scrivner was going through a mental health crisis, distraught over his divorce. He said the altercation ensued after his child attempted to disarm him.

“We have a reasonable basis to believe and conclude that that allegation is absolutely not reliable,” Sala said. “It’s not true. It did not occur.”

Youngblood said an emergency protective order is barring Scrivner from any contact with his children. He declined to disclose their ages and whether the victim was one of Scrivner’s daughters or sons.

Youngblood said the investigation will be a “lengthy process.”

“It should be noted that this investigation is ongoing and not near completed,” he said. “We still have interviews to conduct, forensic evaluations to make.”

Scrivner was elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2010, serving as chairman in 2012, 2017 and 2022. Before serving on the board, he spent six years on the Bakersfield City Council.

We note the L.A. Times doesn't note this loon's party affiliation. Oh, guess what?

Sawing Wood

Spent the afternoon & evening watching the Angels & Dodgers lose while sawing wood (Literally, not, unfortunately, snoring the day away.) after drawing & re-drawing lines.
I considered renting a powered saw (don't saw esp. straight, but gaps are covered by fake grass & real sand) or taking two days to do it all, but once I started I eventually got all I needed cut, w/ time off to watch the telly & what not. Still have 17.25" to saw (lower right) & a corner or two to round off but that can wait until my arm is reattached.

2,000 Light-Yrs. Away

Wading through the wealth of data from ESA’s Gaia mission, scientists have uncovered a ‘sleeping giant’. A large black hole, with a mass of nearly 33 times the mass of the Sun, was hiding in the constellation Aquila, less than 2000 light-years from Earth.

Nothing New Under The Sun

Five yrs. ago, per a message from Microsoft. I wish the sky were actually burning.
Same shit, same date, different yr.
If we're re-running images because of a reminder from a corporate robot we should probably admit this whole web-log thing is over & go back to standing on street corners screaming at cars, pedestrians & traffic signs.

Chickenshit Nation

Lemme tell ya: Had I been selected for the Trump jury pool, I'd have done my best to get close enough to Trump to spit on him, certainly would've been giving him the finger from the moment I entered the courtroom, would've said from the stand that I thought he should be locked up & the key thrown away, & advised the judge I held him in absolute & utter contempt for being a candy-ass who should've jailed Trump for contempt long ago. Yet all the sheep meekly shuffle into & out of the courtroom w/o a bleat. Not even a fraud, merely a pathetic joke.

Don't Pay Taxes, Chumps!!

What an inane, stupid cliché. Is there nothing new, interesting or original?*

Any Day Now

Ed Pilkington / The Guardian:
Many Americans who recently bought guns open to political violence, survey finds  —  Study of 13,000 Americans finds particular risk among certain types of gun owners, including those who carry weapons in public  —  Large numbers of Americans who have bought guns over the past four years …
Why else would one buy a gun? The best defense is a good offense, & your civilized human world of guns is no different than the natural world of tooth, claw & venom: It's kill or be killed.

Went walking in sunlight. Allegedly good for one's health. Did it until my hip started to hurt. How is that healthy?

No improvement in mental health either, as I am still confronted w/ humanity & its incessant bullshit. (DOES. IT. EVER. STOP?

Hammerin' Hank Enters History

Fifty yrs. ago this reporter was seated on a couch at 8497 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, ten yrs. before it was a city, watching on a 12-inch portable black & white telebision set. No memory of which over-the-air channel Dodger games were on at the time. 

Am I better off than I was fifty yrs. ago?

Eff You, Celestial Mechanics

I got up before 1100 on a Monday for this?

Toally Confuzzled

For some reason, the cover photo for the MC5's Back In The USA
was slapped on this pseudo-album cover, apparently a reissue/bootleg of this.
From a benefit show broadcast on ABC TV's In Concert. You might notice that it's not GFR at all, but their "Special Guest" Freddie King & his band. (Thought it was an excellent cover of "Going Down".)Also by Mr. King & band:
Grand Funk, 'though also from Michigan, were a power trio ('til they added a keyboard player) not a five-piece.

Glad the U.S. helped the Vietnamese in their civil war (at the cost of 58,000+ Yankee lives & X billion dollars) so that 50 yrs. later they can sell plastic crap to American hobbyists. This reporter is ashamed to live in such a cretinous country.
