Virag's Movie Reviews: Ted 2 (2015)

Jesus frakking christ, every funny-ish bit was in the commercials.  Brilliant.  Plus Marky Mark ruins everything he's in, and when you start out with garbage like this and add Marky Mark, well, that's fucking atrocious.

Roger Ailes Is An Exceptional American

Master of pussy!  Ailes knew how to treat the ladies, and I'm sure there's a lesson for all the sad and limp betas out there.  Roger Ailes deserves a place right up front in the Trump administration.  And it's really hard to feel too too badly for the enthusiastic reactionary idiot who managed to get herself targeted by Ailes; I'm sure Ailes attempted to snag 10,000 of those chippies a year with a laughably low success rate, and Laure Luhn was someone who was too stupid to run screaming when she had the chance.  Yeah, blaming the victim is shitty no matter how much that dipshit helped Fox "News" enable a war.  Ailes musta been able to see her coming 10 miles away.  What a great fucking guy.

Mr. Garibaldi

Croaked.  Doyle was not a good actor, but he was fine as Mr. Garibaldi.  The fact that he was a fucking wingnut douchebag is impossible to ignore, though, unless you were his good, dear friend. 

Babylon 5 has a deadlier fucking curse than King Tut's tomb.

Bill O'Reilly Is An Exceptional American

A great American: brave and brilliant and oh so handsome.  He's way too good for it, but let us pray to jesus fucking christ who loves us so fucking much that Bill O'Reilly is the Press Secretary for President Trump!

Every Upper-Middle-Class Twit

Racist asshole, worthless dipshit, and overprivileged cocksucker in one place for you to enjoy: the Serotta Forum.  The fact that they're nasty creeps and the dumbest bastards in all the gods' miserable creations is just fucking bonus for all you people.

There's Something Especially Dreadful About John Aravosis

Yes, we have the vulgar village idiot wannabes like Kos and Josh Marshall, and the welfare academia numbskulls, and the mush-headed pissboys and girls like John Cole and his band of sad-sack halfwits, but still, there's something really extra-awful about John Aravosis.  I'm not sure if it's the fact that he's dumb as a post, or maybe that he's trying way too hard, but Aravosis manages to distinguish himself even among the vile shitballs passing for the entry-level Democratic Party establishment in 2016.  He really loves Hillary Clinton, so that's all you need to hear to know for certain that he is the leading asshole in any state.

Did Trump Build The Olympic Village?

It had to be Trump!  This is exactly his style.  Shoddy workmanship, dangerous safety violations and way behind schedule.  Trump!  He's made the Olympics great again and he'll do it for America and for you!

Nobody Really Likes Clinton

Her true fans are fucking dunderheads.  The Bernie people are right to be sad and/or disgusted with Clinton, but they should not be surprised that a career centrist politician like Sanders has hitched his wagon to the Democratic nominee.  Sanders served as an unexpected reminder that the next President didn't have to be quite so awful as Clinton (or a Republican) and as a sign that progress--even tiny amounts of progress--is impossible in our society.  The simple fact that Bill Clinton's wife would even be seriously considered as a viable candidate by any exceptional American not named Hillary Clinton proves that our democracy and our society are beyond redemption.  Bush, then Clinton, then Bush, Obama, then Clinton, with another Bush running.  Almost anyone in America would be a better President than Hillary Clinton, yet we are stuck with her because our nation and our political system are irreparably broken.  Fucked does not even begin to describe our reality.

How's That Fight For $15 Going? Look! Tim Kaine!

Hillary's with you folks and the fight for $15!  Or not.  I think most decent sensible people out there in exceptional America know they're fucked now and that Tim Kaine is pretty much the final insult for every potential Democratic Party voter who is not a complete piece of shit.

At least they shitcanned Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  That was pretty fun.

Froome

Stupid name, but Froome is a major Tour de France champion now; three is pretty fucking impressive.  Now, though, the questions are how long can he hold out, and how long can Team Sky keep it going till they get busted for something and have to end the team.

So, Yeah, It's Trump

Boatloads of idiots thought the GOP would never actually do it, but Trump is the man, and the Republican Party is dead fucking meat.  He's their fucking king, though: dumb; nasty; racist; an asshole supreme.  Not that the Dems are any fucking better today.

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.

Pence

Mike Pence is way too much of a blockhead to be Trump's VP pick--not that that will stop Trump.  But Pence is a fucking moron.  The only thing he brings to Trump's campaign is the astounding fact that Pence is one of the very few Republicans actually serving in elected office not afraid to be seen with Trump.  That doesn't say much for Pence, and Pence will do nothing to help Trump avoid an historic loss in November.  The worst is that despite being a teabagging fuckwit and nasty right-wing creep, Mike Pence is not at all entertaining, making us more fucked than usual.

The Fifth Season Of Babylon 5 Was Not Good

The entire series suffered from not enough writers, and too much J. Michael Straczynski, but the final season was the worst.  Iirc, the thing was on a Turner channel or some shit, but jeez what a waste of effort.  Straczynski built that world, but all his ideas were not brilliant, and by the end he was mostly out.

President For Life Trump Is Gonna Fix Our Blacks Problem

Get the picture?  Nothing but old timey justice is gonna matter once Trump gets his mitts on our blacks problem.  He's got the skills, and America needs that kind of strong leader.  A leader not afraid to lead the people in making sure certain others remember how good they got it.  How much the people do for the likes of them.  Trump's def that guy.  He knows all the right people and he sure as shit knows what really matters.

The Universe Keeps Fucking Trump

The UK.  The cops.  The guntards.  They all keep fucking Trump.  Sure, maybe he would have gotten some bad coverage over some nutty thing he had said, but to be drowned out--and have agenda stepped on, especially when Clinton would have been in the news--but Trump needed this time to further his campaign.  So far, he's getting nowhere, and he's on his way to an historic election debacle.

Sad Right-Wing Idiot Of The Day, Today

Mister Garibaldi.  Doyle was never a great actor--or a good one, really--but he was decent and effective on Babylon 5.  After that though, the acting thing didn't quite work out so instead of following Mr. Morden's lead, Doyle decided to become a wingnut assclown and grade-Z right-wing talk radio guy.  He shoulda listened to Zathras and found himself a nice hole to hide in for a thousand years or so before becoming a sad imitation of Sean Hannity.

Ted Rall Would Make A President Than Hillary Clinton

But so would many Americans--millions in fact. Many millions.  But we don't have them people--and we don't have Ted Rall--and we do have Hillary, so I guess we're what you'd consider pretty well fucked by not as fucked as Trump.

Cavendish Has 29

That's pretty frakking good.  Cavendish is no EM, but to be second behind him in overall stage wins is still something.  Cavendish is never gonna top the GC five times, though...

Maybe Gretchen Carlson Thing Is More Fun Than We Think

This could be very bad for Fox "News".  Trump's done major damage to that shit show, and it's quite possible that this Gretchen Carlson idiot might deliver the final insult.  Wouldn't that be fucking grand?

Le Tour

How's this shit show gonna play out this year?  I'm not sure what we are going to get from this one, but I hope it stands out, somehow, as a classic race, because it seems like the sport needs it right about now.

Stuck With Her

The fine, feathered, lingerie-wearing dipshit fascists in the FBI have decided that you really are stuck with Hillary.  Aren't you thrilled?  Isn't this a great day for democracy and shit?  Of course, you were stuck with her since 2012 and she was never getting indicted for anything ever, but now it's officially official.  No Hillary for prison in 2016.  No teabagger wet dream is gonna save America from the next Clinton presidency.

Phelps

Michael Phelps was not kidding when he said he was getting in great shape this summer.  If he manages to pull of any individual gold medals this time around, he'll be the greatest Olympian and hop-head the world has ever seen.  Where he goes after this is a legit question, but he's in the middle of doing something remarkable right fucking now.

Local Radio

Doesn't really exist anymore, but such as it does, I always try and tune in when I can.  Today, when I was not home, I was able to listen to some unfamiliar local radio and caught a decently oddball music selection, including some good stuff like Superchunk, Dirty on Purpose, The B-52s, and Pavement.  The fact that the Pavement song was followed by Steve Winwood was sort of disconcerting--and certainly not cup of tea--but that's racing.

Virag's Movie Reviews: Krampus (2015)

Krampus was almost a really good flick.  You could see some decent ideas and the germ of a proper attitude at times, but it was all too muddled to work well.  PG-13 didn't help, but somehow, if they filmmakers had been a bit more daring and a bit more creative, they could have come out with the holiday horror film they thought they made.  I guess maybe the Krampus shtick may have been the albatross instead of the savior of the whole enterprise.

Cool N Weird Rock Lobster

Oddly odd little mix of the old and new, but since it seems like a purpose built bike for real riding done by an actual person, rock on.

Boris Johnson Is The Perfect VP For Trump

What a fucking hero Boris Johnson is.  A true conservative sack of shit--and he would be the perfect VP for Trump.  Shit, the creepy bastard is even eligible cuz he was born in the USA!  Fuck yeah!
