Nocturnal Submission: Freestanding Edition 275

Charts seem to be coming in on-time today. We’ll see. Maybe tomorrow’s ‘First Post’ will have a ‘Yesterday’s Activity’ section after all. It depends on the leakers. It depends on the witch hunt, etc. Continue reading

If you know anything about this here Weblog, you know we have a healthful mistrust of up-to-the-minute popular culture, otherwise we’d still be dancing the Macarena (what?) and singing Who Let the Dogs Out? (Woof! Woof!) and pledging loyalty to the Contract with America (emphasis on the verb form of ‘contract’). However, we have found someone we can be all-in on for quite some time: Lorde. Ladies & gentlemen, Lorde…LORDE! Continue reading

Apologies to Saint Anthony of Padua, whose Feast Day was yesterday — and we neglected to commemorate it the way we always do. Anthony, you are the Patron of Lost Things, and so we pray to you for all sorts of recoveries. Yup. Continue reading

Tuesday Sniping: Separated-at-Birth Edition

You know how if two people look and act the same, one of them is probably redundant, superfluous, surplus to demand? We have applied this theory to such superstar pairings of Ellen DeGeneres & Neil Patrick Harris; Karl Rove & Dick Cheney; Alex Jones & Rush Limbaugh; Amy Schumer & Miss Piggie; and so on. If one of the two in each pair were suddenly to disappear, probably no great loss, right? Well, we have a new pair to consider: Elmer Fudd & Jefferson (DAVIS) (GEN. P.T.) Beauregard Sessions 3d. What say you? We report, you decide. Continue reading

Monday Boxing: No Insecurity, No Insecurity, You’re the Insecurity Edition

Validation. Some of us require it a little too much. Over here, we already had a healthful mistrust of con-men emotionally needy self-promoters, and this is like a booster shot. Continue reading

Monday Boxing: Geo. Gershwin Edition

Yes, Pgh. Pens, Adam West, Gay Pride Month & gender-reassignment, etc., but today we go to the Caribbean instead. We have a hunch Don Trump Sr. would not be so anti-Cuba if they had an obscenely rich family in charge. Just a guess there. If they had a secret sheikh or oligarch hidden in the cabildo with some pesos to take away, it’s probably a correct supposition that Don Sr. would send Don Jr., Eric, Javanka, etc. down there faster than you could say, ‘LUUUUUUUUUUUCY!’ Just a hunch. They’d be down there — Don Jr., Javanka, Eric, Melania if it would help, Nicole Meyer etc. — dancing the rumba quicker than a bum on a bologna sandwich, quicker than flies descending on the gutwagon. Just a guess. Just a hunch. Everyone has them, these guesses and hunches. But who knows? Just a hunch, just a guess. Continue reading
