Because I would ptobably tear several new assholes into anyone stupid enough to spout that ‘take any job’ garbage. I have a job. I make what is considered in most circles a shit-ton of money. I am very happy that is the case. I also am not a fucking moron, so I realize that bankers, the Fed, CEOs, and the rest of the powers that be (who make one or two or even three orders of...
I’m anti-vax. Actually, I’m not really a fan of old DEC hardware in general.
40 Publishing Buzzwords... decoded for you
scribnerbooks: One Minute Book Reviews has gathered together publishers favorite buzzwords (guilty as charged) and what they really mean… according to industry veterans. Our favorites: “absorbing”: “makes a great coaster” “accessible”: “not too many big words” “acclaimed”: “poorly selling” “breakout book”: “Hail Mary pass” “brilliantly defies categorization”: “even the author has no clue what...

seltzerlizard: by Douglas Robert Turek The museum has many entrances and exits, of different sizes and shapes and styles.

I follow Kelly Oxford ‘cause sometimes she’s funny. But I think that’ll have to stop now. Unless it was some incredibly subtle piece of satire I missed, she actually thought she - encased in two tons of steel - had right of way and was an innocent victim of the verbal abuse of someone who had the temerity not to want to be run over in a parking lot. Furthermore, she reached out...

There was a clearly conscious decision made to start completely fresh with 11. It begins with the change to the opening theme (which has not and never will grow on me; the previous arrangement was vastly superior), extended through the cinematography (I’d have to check, but it looks so different I think they even changed cameras), and came to full fruition by avoiding all past companions and...

Ugh. Can't get this joke formulated.
When I’m feeling like I should be funny (not that I am funny; rather, that I should be funny) and don’t have any other inspiration, I fall back on song lyrics. Sometimes the jokes come together; sometimes they don’t cohere. This one…it feels like it should work. Here are the pieces I have: Karen Carpenter’s shambling corpse (she’s a zombie, natch) Said...

We have no friends, so when you sit near us on a plane, on a train, or in a café, you can read, write, or contemplate your thoughts in peace. We won’t be yammering on about the Delta Psi mixer, last night’s Jersey Shore, or whether Kantian transcendental objects represent a separate ontological domain.

Yeah, yeah, opinions are like assholes; everyone has one. What they neglected to tell you was that like assholes, they’re not all the same. Some are like crisp Vonnegut asterisks and some are puffy and inflamed, but most are just perpetually filled with shit. The key is figuring out which is which.
