NimChimpskyImagine a picture of Mitch McConnell honking some tits. Do you think you'd be as unperturbed?

I will put $10 on Trump strangling or shooting the turkey he's supposed to pardon while saying, "Suck it up, snowflakes!"

Another $5 on his saying at some point, "It was my idea that people should eat turkey for Thanksgiving! I thought of that!"

I think that the Celtics are great and that HoboJoe should be beaten with a tire iron, locked in a steamer trunk, and stored in a cave until the end of the season.

theVictorianHadn't seen The Secret of NIMH since early childhood. Funny the little things that stick in the memory, specifically Dom Deluise's performance as Jeremy the Crow. It's not the best thing ever made but it's really nicely animated and the scoring is good. Blu-ray transfer is really grainy and occasionally blurred, but not ugly. Still has the original, dramatic UA logo, which is nice.

Got Eastbound & Down on a clearance. Watched the first episode and it's pretty funny. McBride's special brand of arseholery is impressively extreme.

Eastbound & Down is HILARIOUS. If you haven't seen Vice Principals, there are two wonderful seasons of that to watch too.
I CAN'T WAIT for McBride's (and/or Hill's) next project(s).

McBride said in an interview I read a day or two ago that next up is another HBO series with Hill. McBride and Hill are the American version of Wright-Pegg-Frost.

King Elessar 8The Good Place.

Binged watched the first 2/3rds of the first season. Enjoyable if a little broad for my tastes.

You must watch all the way to the season finale. (And beyond.)

Was just thinking about this yesterday. I'm tired of Chrome crashing. I saw that Apple says the new Safari prevents videos from autoplaying, which is big plus, but that of course does me no good when I'm on a PC. (I have PC at work, Mac at home.) I haven't used FF much recently since it has seemed to have had a lot of the same crashing problems as Chrome. I guess I could use Microsoft Edghahahaha, can't even finish that sentence.

MeowAl Franken. And they say bipartisanship is dead.

I'm not questioning the rest of her account but with that photo you can't really say for sure whether Franken is actually groping her or just miming it. But either way, WTF were you thinking, Al?!

WrecklooseThe Sixers are the most fun team in the league. Knicks are second.

It's Houston #1 for me.

Clint Capela is everywhere.

There's a mental hurdle for me in accepting a central plot device of Mr. Robot that has increasingly manifested in reality-breaking ways this season. Despite my struggle with giving in to this fictional world and its mechanics and a creeping sense of plot recycling, I continue to be absolutely in love with the performances and the way things are staged and shot. The last two episodes have been super-tense.

I've only heard bits and pieces about Grace Mugabe, but she sounds like a piece of work.

Ivan the TerribleGood to know the dictator is gone and now the military will set Zimbabwe on the path to becoming a stable, modern democracy.



I would bet five bajillion Zimbabwean dollars on that.

I don't know if that's, like, a lot or what.

wirthlingI have not but I yearn for it. I'm already a loner so that part of it wouldn't be a problem. I would definitely miss convenient, diverse grocery stores, but with Amazon available and always widening its offerings, there isn't much you can't get shipped to you. (I'd still miss wandering the aisles.) I really want to pitch working remotely full-time, even with occasional office visits, but our executive director is old-fashioned on that practice. So probably some time in the next decade or so, if I'm still alive, I will have to decide whether to make an ultimatum, or find a different job that will let me work remotely, or just suck it up and continue to deal with suburban Maryland's version of the rat race.

I've already been scouting possible new homes. Colorado, Vermont, Oregon, and California are all high on the list. Maybe even New Zealand, if they make sand flies extinct first. Maybe Canada. (I like cold.)

I'm ludicrously biased, but the Twin Cities are a good mix of stuff to do and reasonably priced living. And we have cold.

That's one of the few places in the country I have not yet been to. I have even been in both Dakotas. I would not want to live in any Dakota. I have heard Minnesota is way prettier, though.

Hulu canceled Difficult People. I loved it but three seasons is about right. It was great at what it did but there wasn't much variety to it. Anyway, we still have Billy Eichner on twitter, so it's kind of like the show wasn't canceled anyway.

Turns out the last episode of season three was a decent finale episode, even if it wasn't meant to be. Maybe they suspected the cancellation was coming.

(I am never going to stop thrashing at the universe about the canceled vs cancelled thing. I try to stick to the more economical one-l approach but then my spell-checker complained about "cancelation." AAAARRRRRRGGGGGH.)

Have I told my getting-groped stories?

When I was 13-ish my ass was grabbed by a guy on an elevator. He looked like a ginger Weird Al Yankovic and just before he groped me he said, "You look like you're selling something!" The elevator doors opened just as he grabbed my ass. (This happened less than five minutes after I was almost mugged outside the hotel. Good times.) It was more annoying than traumatizing, but I do remember it vividly, so maybe there's more to it subconsciously.

When I was 20-something I was laying in bed post-coitus with my then-girlfriend and we were high as kites on acid and ex, and a friend of ours dropped by with a friend of his from out of town, and after a couple minutes of conversation this guy suddenly pulled down the sheet and took a good hold of my twig and berries for a solid ten seconds. I was basically paralyzed the whole time, not out of fear or shame, but just confusion compounded by drugs. I didn't feel violated, probably because I was ultimately in control of the situation, if I wanted to be, I guess. I think his name was JT.

Now go to sleep, children!
