sabotabby: raccoon anarchy symbol (TARDIS by mimisoliel)
Today was, apparently, the day to get cool shit in the mail. First, when I left the house on my way to physio, there was a Doctor Who ice tray in my mailbox. It's not especially convenient for ice cubes, but my intent is to make chocolates with it because I'm awesome that way.

Nevertheless, in the meantime it also does make ice cubes, albeit really large ones, so here is Marinetti exterminating an ice Dalek:

My badass Adventure Kitty, you guys.

Here's what the TARDIS one looks like:

As if that wasn't already enough to make my day, I got yet another package in the mail in the afternoon, this one from the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] nihilistic_kid. He'd blogged awhile ago about the most hilarious ever Jews for Jesus pamphlet, a rare specimen of the sort I collect for the lulz, and actually sent it my way (along with a book that looks awesome).

Feast your eyes:

leave it to bieber photo leaveittobieber_zps3a15752a.jpg

It's about how Jesus is more awesome than Justin Bieber. Which is really setting a low bar if you ask me, but I am probably not the target audience. Anyway! In an effort to share some of the joy, I've scanned the whole thing so that you can read it, print it, and evangelize. You're welcome!

Proof that my neighbourhood is the most adorbs:

Doorbell rings. It's my next door neighbour—the one I don't see very often. With a tin of cookies for me. Of course, I was planning on dropping by in a few days with a tin of cookies for her and her husband. So I saved a trip next door! (And since they're not often home and may well be going away, it worked out well that I could give them to her now.) We both found it pretty funny, especially because we'd both baked ginger cookies.

I am predicting that I will end up with roughly the same amount of cookies that I made owing to everyone being on a baking spree lately.

OMG YOU GUYS OMG

YOU GUYS

Despite the first movie being smacked down by the Invisible Hand of the Free Market, Atlas Shrugged II is out.

And it sounds horrendous. And Robert Picardo is in it, because apparently former Star Trek actors mostly get work in movies like this. I am so excited. I hope he and Armin Shimmerman are skeezy together in a scene where they plot against the heroic capitalists who singlehandedly turn the wheels of industry with their bulging arms.


THE GUBMINT IS COMING AFTER OUR COPYRIGHTS!


Are your ideals rigid or are you just happy to see me?

Okay, kids, you know the score. I need this movie in my life. First person to find me a genuine working torrent gets the review dedicated to them.

As of 2011, the population of Toronto was 2,615,060. So it's hardly a small town. However, it's run by a small-minded mayor, who doesn't seem to understand the consequences of his actions.

He announced that "everyone" was invited to his party. That's a dumb thing to do. Remember when this happened?

Well. Since he was "too busy" to come to Pride, the gays will be bringing Pride to him! (Hopefully in a big pink bus.)

Here's the Facebook group if you're interested in coming and need his address or directions. It's going to be fun times. I hear there will be pony rides.

Of course, he might not be mayor by then. I really hope he's an ex-mayor by then.

The comics world mourns the loss of baroque anatomy, porn traces, floating or otherwise invisible feet, and seriously, what was in all those pouches?

I can't help but imagine various DC heroines untwisting their spines and sighing in relief as their internal organs re-settle into their proper places and their tiny little feet are finally able to touch the ground.

Also, who tweets during a movie? That's just rude.

Got the best e-mail ever this morning, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] misslynx. (Background: Little A is [livejournal.com profile] misslynx's adorable 4-year-old, who for some reason really, really likes me.)

Hi [sabotabby],

[Little A] insists that he wants to send you an e-mail. Despite the fact that he can't actually write yet. So don't expect much in the way of coherence... But here goes:

kfgjjgjhiy7ujkyhi86o76jyh8g76y97otjho7y5i5omuj6y7k7uli76upy uki96ky6jkjihkjbikjgkgjllkhyjug,lftjur,kg.tkkyiohiopugyguugytoiyio9ygo9yoh 96090790p665909y069y55u8tk98u99i9riui4e9y0

He says what he was trying to write was "her address, and all her neighbours' addresses, and her door number."

"Anything else you'd like to say to [Sabo]?" I asked.

"I do love her," he said. "I love her, and I love the chalk drawings of Cthulhu and the shark. Where the shark is saying 'Yum' and Cthulhu is saying 'Don't even think about it'." He then started singing happily "Don't even think about it, don't even think about it, don't even think about it..." and then got distracted by a bag of cat food.

Just thought you'd like to know...


[Miss Lynx]


For reference, here are the chalk drawings in question:

I am pleased to note that while it rained at some point and the chalk drawings on my patio have washed away, the ones on my walk-up and outdoor furniture remain more or less intact. Those are my favourites anyway.

Also, I've done this to my workspace )

Hey, I haven't done a leftist sectariana post in forever. Let's change that. Check out Cause Pimps. (Warning: If you are prone to seizures, don't check it out.)

It was brought to my attention courtesy of two people who seem to be among the author's primary targets. (They're both lovely people, incidentally.) Once again, I was insulted that I have not been included in the directory of Bad People—as Wilde put it, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about—and it occurred to me that perhaps I should join the SPO just to warrant a mention. But I don't like their logo. Anyway.

Cause Pimps is an interesting site for a few reasons. I mean, the most obvious is the hilarious animated gifs and unfortunate colour choices. But politically, it's interesting because it seems to be an attack from the left, or at least from someone who was on the left at one point, but doesn't hesitate to use right-wing talking points, and occasionally swerves right into full-on conspiracy theories. I can almost guarantee that I'd know the author by face, if not by name. This is someone who has been on the wrong side of either an OCAP schism or a CKLN schism, or both. Not a hard thing to do, and however much I respect the work both groups do, it can be a painful, isolating thing, so I might have a little sympathy for our mysterious webmaster. Except, well, he's wrong, and also the site is really terrible and eye-watering.

A few highlights:

The control system seems to work at three levels. The rawest is the police/judicial complex which is widely said to be run by the Masons. The Toronto police headquarters is surrounded by Masonic symbols.

Anyone who has tried to get justice done through either the civil or criminal courts has become aware of a seamless system of denying justice. It runs from the cop on the beat through the legal aid system to the court staff to the judges to the attorney general's office. If the Masons are not the coordinating system in this, then it is some group much like them.


I can think of many, many reasons to hate Toronto cops and cops in general. The theory that they are Freemasons is not one of them.

The kind of people and organizations who you will be given intelligence about on this site are really, really not going to like it. We expect intense efforts to try to take this site down. Let them try.


If, by "take it down," you mean linking to it on their Facebook pages and directing everyone there for a good laugh, yep, that's what they're doing right now.

Should we complain to google? Anyone hitting Andy Lehrer" and "pimp" can find this page due to cross links with other pimps pages. The truth will come through despite all the efforts of the liars to throttle it.


This quote, admittedly, is a hundred times funnier if you know him. Still, I think he'd be pretty amused if people were actually Googling "Andy Lehrer" and "pimp."

The world is also full of people with unresolved mental problems, or who have serious mind circuit problems. The true crazy refuses to accept that there is something wrong with him, not with the world around her. Generally, they think the world is slighting them and sometimes they become violent.




WHAT

Toronto activism is so weird, you guys. So. Weird.

I can't go to this, as usual (though at least I'm apparently not missing China Miéville this time) but isn't the header the most wonderful thing you've seen in awhile? And they say Marxists don't have a sense of humour.

(The font is utter shit, though.)

Via [livejournal.com profile] apocalypsos: This post has some real gems, though mostly what you'd expect from a Teabagger function (though, amusingly, Boston has so few homegrown Teabaggers that they had to roll them in on the Tea Party Express). The commentary is pretty good too.

My favourite, though, were the photographs showing a confrontation between what appear to be steampunk-esque LARPers and the Teabaggers.

Cutest. Counter-protest. Ever.

I got BoingBoinged! Well, [livejournal.com profile] zingerella and [livejournal.com profile] apperception, and I did. But no credit. I so regret never putting my name on that thing.

Is it gauche to ask for credit, do you think?

ETA: Jezebel too!
