Virag's Movie Reviews: Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice (2016)

Sucked wicked bad.  But as bad as it was, there was no real excuse for such a tremendous level of suckitude.  Whoever approved that script should have been horse whipped.  And the fine fine folks responsible for Zack Snyder can never atone.  It's nice that Batfleck was supposed to be old(er), but he was way too big and beefy to be the roadworn and weary Batman.  The rest of the casting was either a waste or an atrocity--see, Luthor, Lex.  Overall, this flick was no fucking fun and didn't make any sense at all.

Yes, Time To Disarm The Police

Absolutely.  And any cop or cop union not in favor of real gun control is fucking worthless.  The first step is to get rid of the guns on both sides of the badge.  That will make the society a fuck ton safer for citizens and police.  Police are part of the problem right now, and it is long past time to make them part of the solution.

Lose With Cruz!

What these village idiots don't understand is that Trump owns the GOP now, and he's treating the whole fucking thing like a gods-damned slumlord.  He'll burn it down if he wants to.  He build something else after he's done.  Cuz he can.  He owns the dump.  Cruz didn't hurt Trump.  Cruz didn't help himself for 2020.  There won't be any Republican Party for Cruz in four years.  Trump's already destroyed it, and this fucking convention in Cleveland proves it.

Hohner Professional PJ Bass

Not mine in the pic, but I just picked up one of these from the local instrument guy in practically new condition so my kid can use it in the jazz band.  Nice Fender copy in the classic PJ style.  It's pretty fucking solid and sounds good, though I think the tone pot is shot--but I've also heard that it might never have done much anyway on this one.  The pickups are decent, the neck is straight, and the tuners say licensed Schaller on 'em; it's a C serial number and made in Korea, so that means Cort.  It was bought locally in about 1990.  Gonna get a black-pink-black pick guard to replace the white-black-white, and we will be good to go.

Melania Is All Trump

Nobody should care about this shit.  Except that Trump is a fucking nimrod.  And his campaign has become a spontaneous abortion in an elevator.  Melania is probably pretty much a dipshit, but why in the fuck didn't someone make sure that the speechwriter didn't rip off recent future-first-lady history from EIGHT FUCKING YEARS AGO?  Jesus.  The Trump shit show is better and more entertaining than we ever hoped.  Yay, team.

Bernie Butthurt

No surprise.  Sanders ran as a Dem in the Dem primary, so there was never, ever going to be any way that he did not support the Dem nominee--even if it was not him--even if it was Clinton.  The folks who are all butthurt obviously were not paying attention. 

And yes, Sanders was a better candidate than Clinton.  And yes, Sanders would have beaten Trump more easily than Clinton.  And yes, Sanders would have been a better president.  Yes.

But Clinton had the nomination on election night in 2012.  The fact that Sanders ran so well was a sign that Sanders is a pretty good mainstream politician as well as a signal that Clinton is a walking dog turd in general. 

Lee Ranaldo And Leah Singer: Better Than The Trump Convention

A nice diversion from the toxic sludge bursting forth in Cleveland.  Ranaldo, along with Kim Gordon, have done some interesting things after their meal ticket got murdered by that idiot.  And oh jesus fucking christ we are gonna need fun stuff after Trump gets done with us.

Turkey Is Fucked

And that's not good news for anyone on either side of that shithole.  Radical, fundamentalist, theocratic Turkey is a nightmare for the hope of secular, modern societies on the Middle East as well as a nightmare for what passes for Western civilization in Europe.  The US policy has been a disaster for the last gods-damned century, and nothing in the looming Hillary presidency suggests that we will be doing anything to correct our ongoing mistakes.  Turkey's relentless slide into primitive, superstitious insanity is just the latest highlight.

Is There Anything Worse Than Hearing Journey On The Radio?

Maybe it is someone's car.  Maybe they have the radio on for some unknowable reason.  Maybe it's a pretty standardly awful commercial rock station.  Maybe it was Rolling Stones and U2 and similar tedious rawknroll.  But then it's Journey.  And that's so much worse.  So so bad that you are sorry you were ever born.  Yeah, that.

There's Nothing In Baton Rouge Worth Shooting Someone Over

Nothing at all.  Cops.  Not cops.  Dog walkers.  Dog catchers.  Dogs.  Don't shoot them.  What the fuck is wrong with all the guntard assholes in this country?  Our police are over-armed and scared shitless, and our teabagging shitheads and other exceptional American racist assholes are running around everywhere with guns.  We are truly fucked.

Pence Makes It Easier For Hillary

If that's something.  Pence is the conservative idiot fav, but he's not gonna be able to help Trump.
