Indecent Disclosure
Topic: TV 11:43 am EST, Dec  9, 2010

"Unless you've never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather chair or eaten meat, save your condemnation."

You're right, Sarah, we'll all just go fuck ourselves now.

The snotty quote was posted by Sarah Palin on (like all the great frontier women who've come before her) her Facebook page to respond to the criticism she knew and hoped would be coming after she hunted, killed and carved up a Caribou during a segment of her truly awful reality show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, broadcast on The-Now-Hilariously-Titled Learning Channel.

I eat meat, chicken and fish, have shoes and furniture made of leather, and PETA is not ever going to put me on the cover of their brochure and for these reasons Palin thinks it's hypocritical of me to find what she did heart-stoppingly disgusting. I don't think it is, and here's why.

Like 95% of the people I know, I don't have a visceral (look it up) problem eating meat or wearing a belt. But like absolutely everybody I know, I don't relish the idea of torturing animals. I don't enjoy the fact that they're dead and I certainly don't want to volunteer to be the one to kill them and if I were picked to be the one to kill them in some kind of Lottery-from-Hell, I wouldn't do a little dance of joy while I was slicing the animal apart.

I'm able to make a distinction between you and me without feeling the least bit hypocritical. I don't watch snuff films and you make them. You weren't killing that animal for food or shelter or even fashion, you were killing it for fun. You enjoy killing animals. I can make the distinction between the two of us but I've tried and tried and for the life of me, I can't make a distinction between what you get paid to do and what Michael Vick went to prison for doing. I'm able to make the distinction with no pangs of hypocrisy even though I get happy every time one of you faux-macho shitheads accidentally shoots another one of you in the face.

So I don't think I will save my condemnation, you phony pioneer girl. (I'm in film and television, Cruella, and there was an insert close-up of your manicure while you were roughing it in God's country. I know exactly how many feet off camera your hair and make-up trailer was.)

And you didn't just do it for fun and you didn't just do it for money. That was the first moose ever murdered for political gain. You knew there'd be a protest from PETA and you knew that would be an opportunity to hate on some people, you witless bully. What a uniter you'd be -- bringing the right together with the far right.

(Let me be the first to say that I abused cocaine and was arrested for it in April 2001. I want to be the first to say it so that when Palin's Army of Arrogant Assholes, bereft of any reasonable rebuttal, write it all over the internet tomorrow they will at best be the second.)

I eat meat, there are leather chairs in my office, Sarah Palin is deranged and The Learning Channel should be ashamed of itself.

poor deaf moose just didn't hear the hair dryer. and now it's at least neck deep into some tastee moose gravy.

JScreenFix - Fix stuck pixels and screen burn-in
Topic: TV 2:53 pm EST, Feb 11, 2008


JScreenFix is a software solution that can fix stuck pixels, reduce screen burn-in and improve the quality of images displayed on a screen.

Hot (aka stuck) pixels are pixels on an LCD that won't turn off from either R-G-B. JScreenFix is a cleaver way to get rid of them if they are truely stuck. If you have dead pixels which just won't turn on (and look black) then this won't help you at all.

Comedy Central - Shows - The Daily Show
Topic: TV 12:50 am EDT, Jul 15, 2005

I don't know how or why, but I think the new set made the daily show with jon stewart harder hitting. I'm not complaining since neither FNC, MSNBC, or CNN seem to cover the news anymore... just some fucked up marketing friendly celebrity chasing-true crime retelling-fear mongering OxyClean shill.

Who would have thought that a guy from New Jersey would become a better interviewer and hold his guests more accountable than say... Tim Russert, Larry King or Mario van Peebles.

Jon's coverage of the Valarie Plame / Karl Rove scuttlebug has been the most fair, most transperent, most insightful coverage of the whole mess. I believe that the Plame case highlights this administration's contempt for the media (... and consequently the american people) and exposes the lengths the WH will go to distort reality [0] [1] [2] [3].


ps) Apperently there are no less than 39 John Stewart's in imdb. So dropping the ``h'' was probably a good move, branding wise.

Interview w/ Billy West on Onion AV Club
Topic: TV 12:01 pm EDT, Jun 15, 2005

O: There had always been rumors that executives at Fox didn't like Groening, so they were burying Futurama.

BW: I wasn't in the room when these things went on, but there was some kind of trouble going on. Now they're talking about doing a Futurama movie to DVD, and then a second and a third, so there's life after death.
