news: a German says "screw having fun, there's work to do"
Well really, whatever
happened to the relaxed, carefree Germany we've all come to love?
is kinda like a live newsfeed with the dull stuff cut out. An interesting
"blog" to scan on a regular basis.
Vampires, guns, blood and other fun stuff
Watched the DVD of
Blade 2 on my big-ass home theatre screen last night. And whaddaya
know, it was a darned fine effort. Frankly, I'm not a huge fan of teenage
actioners, martial arts shite and whatnot, and most comic book adaptions
suck walrus dick.
This film worked because
it was focused, to the point, and (praise gawwwd) they didn't camp it
up. The production design and atmospherics were truly superb, going for
a slightly more "old euro-goth" feel than the techno-steel look
of the first film.
Just combat scenes,
stunning visuals and some unusually clever plotting for this genre of
film (though overall still extremely low on logic). No tedious romance
shit or "meaningful themes" either. Only real downside was the
often atrocious soundtrack, with some jarringly out-of-place techno-rap
junk. Sounded like Mortal Kombat discards.
Oh, and Nyssa is a
And hey, how can you
resist a move with Ron Perlman as the head of the bad-ass vampire gang?
Not to mention the
amusing cultural oddness of former wimp-teen-popster Luke Goss as the
head of the mutant Reapers. Even stranger is that he does a good job.
On the extras side,
this DVD actually has an interesting making-of doco that for once doesn't
seem like a piece of sanitised mush. And director Guillermo Del Toro makes
a damned amusing interview subject. Quite a few deleted scenes and other
Overall, if you liked
the original, you're really gonna like this one. All the action
of the first (though some of the fights dragged), with stunning production
values, genuinely great FX, and a much creepier atmosphere.
Darned good fun, and
a fine DVD.
The Sage on the whole Islamonazi Pork Fat thingy....
Regular reader Sage
McLaughlin has some thoughts on these matters...
Noticed your remark
about wrapping dead terrorists from the Religion of Submission in dead
pig. It would probably work, except for one thing.
Right now Muslims
in the Middle East face a crisis of credibility within their faith.
There is a widespread suspicion that Allah might not actually give a
shit about them, that the Koran might be a pack of lies, and so on.
This is because they currently occupy the bottom rung of the civilizational
ladder, except for Sudanese slave traders, who after all have the Religion
of Submission to thank for their depravity as well. When you combine
this with the fact that the Jews have managed to hand them their own
steaming entrails on a hot plate five different times in fifty years,
the notion of worldwide submission to Allah looks like a dim prospect.
This latest jihad
is, at bottom, a last desperate attempt to prove that Allah really is
on their side, the gods really do smile on their religion, and that
they are the harbingers of the Ultimate Holy Truth. Their entire faith
depends on this being the case (Christ, meanwhile, promised his followers
that they would be scorned and persecuted, like the Jews before them,
and that they could not expect to have their reward on earth, so the
worse things get for Christians the more vindicated they feel).
So the only thing
that is going to stop this latest round of bloodshed from the Religion
of Submission is total, apocalyptic defeat and final humiliation on
the field of battle. Followed by a good kick of bloody sand in the face.
That will be the ultimate repudiation of their insane belief that Allah's
will can be demonstrated by total Muslim conquest of the West, and the
eradication of all other forms of civil life. Then, perhaps, with no
other options, the Religion of Submission can finally reform itself
and learn to play well with others.
By the way, I call
it the Religion of Submission because Islam, properly translated, means
"submission," not "peace," and absolutely everything
is in that difference. It reflects what they wish for everyone else,
and it also
reflects what is going to be visited upon them, at least in the Arab
world, if this course is not corrected. So submission is what they plan
to dish out, but in fact I predict submission is what they will be learning
a hell of a lot about in the coming years.
They sure will....they
can count on it.

Bury them in pork
again, with some hard-hitting non-PC ideas about how to deal with Islamonazi
psychos. It includes this fascinating historical lesson;
Plagued by Islamic
terrorists in the southern Philippines, U.S. Army General John "Blackjack"
Pershing's troops captured six Muslim guerrillas in 1911. "You'll
never see Paradise," one officer told the militants before five
of them were shot with bullets dipped in pig fat and later shrouded
in pigskins and buried among pork entrails. The surviving terrorist
was allowed to escape, whereupon he told hiscomrades what he witnessed.
The jihad stopped immediately, and peace prevailed for years.
It worked then, let's
make it work now.
reckons the Pershing story is an unconfirmed rumour (thanks to Zem
and Capt. Heinrichs for the heads-up). Even if it's an urban legend, I
still say it's a fine idea.
Fun night out
to the Australian Libertarian Society dinner last night. Held at the Koreana
Korean BBQ restaurant in Dickson. You select your own food (as much as
you can eat) from a buffet and cook it in your own BBQ. Yeeeoww. Heaven
on a plate I tells ya. We then followed this up with some more drinking
at a nearby bar.
many fine folks, inc. bloggers Alex
Robson and Mark Harrison,
plus the only slighty yuppie-ish Duncan Macfarlane from The Australian.
nice to be surrounded for once by people who believe in free trade and
don't have wet dreams about Whitlam and Keating. There were, however,
one or two very bad poets in the crowd. We need some more cuts in arts
funding to thin out their ranks a little.....
can report some exciting blog news: Duncan and a group of the lads are
creating a new Australian libertarian Überblog along the lines
of Samizdata. They even offered
to make me a contributor, which I gladly accepted. Should be up in a few
it was a pleasure gents. Must do it again some time.
More bullshit from the Sydney Morning Herald
From a fawning
piece on Michael Moore by Stephanie Bunbury, check out this assload.......
also wanted Moore to put up $US100,000 ($179,000) of his own money to
re-publish if he ever wanted to see it on the shelves. He tried, without
success, to negotiate. The book was released in the end only because
news of its suppression had spread on the internet and become something
of a literary scandal.
There were no
publicity tours, no chat-show appearances, no advance copies dispatched
to reviewers. The idea was that the book would quietly disappear, but
something else happened. Stupid White Men ... and Other Sorry Excuses
for the State of the Nation shot to the top of The New York Times best-seller
list and stayed there, despite the fact that the liberal newspaper hasn't
reviewed it. In Britain, it topped the best-seller list before it was
released, thanks to internet sales. And in Australia it remained in
the best-seller list for three months. Moore had become, no doubt about
it, a phenomenon.
A perfect example
of the appalling state of Australian "journalism". A writer
from a "respectable" broadsheet writes the sort of grovelling
bilge you'd read in a "we love saddam" column in The Iraq
Daily. All of Moore's lies, loony censorship conspiracies and delusional
martyrdom ravings are swallowed by the SMH hook, line and sinker.
And these Fairfax
wastrels still have the nerve the squeal about the loss of "standards"
that would result if Packer took them over.....
Idiot & The Fundamentalists
windbag actor John Howard: a man who's only "talent" is having
the same name as our current PM, and who's greatest contribution to Australian
culture is giving endless "apologies" on in the guise of the
PM on TV (which causes premature ejaculation amongst our leftie community),
is here seen in
a lovely photo, with the friendly Sydney muslim cleric who rants about
worldwide jew conspiracies. You meet such nice people in the left.
Nope, The Guardian still hasn't grown a brain
Some more nauseating
moral equivalency from our regular british dopes. This time, John O'Farrell
writes on the Miss World competition....
boycott was to protest against the sentence passed on Amina Lawal, a
Nigerian woman condemned to death by stoning for having sex outside
marriage. And now that hundreds have died in Nigeria as a result of
this competition, there is something distasteful about the remaining
contestants claiming what they want most is "world peace".
Yeah, you heard it.
Hundreds are dead thanks to rampaging Islamonazi psychopaths and their
misogynist rage, but O'Farrell says it's the fault of the competition.
Here's this loser,
and he actually sees fit to complain about "naffest, most anachronistic
event in the international calendar" - this apparent abomination
against women's progress, while bothering only to make a few asides at
a brutal, genocidal women-hating religion of peace, who'd wrap every woman
on earth in a fucking burqa and beat them to death before they'd
ever let them wear bikinis.
Never mind, we can
all bask in the ideological righteousness of our politically correct bretheren,
while the women living under (politically correct) islamic tyranny take
their righteous punishments for offending the noble sensibilities of the
glorious third world.
After all, the ideological
comforts of the soft left are generally paid for with other people's lives.

This is just one of
the funniest muthafuckin' websites you'll see: Little

I'm not kidding, this
fella is a good a writer as Lileks.
Steve on motorcycles;
may look a lot like a bicycle with a gas tank, but in reality, there
are subtle differences. Such as the fact that a typical sportbike does
0-60 in under three seconds. And if you really have a death wish, you
can go to your dealer's showroom, hand over a check for ten grand, and
buy a machine that will finish the quarter-mile about a hundred yards
ahead of a Ferrari.
And people buy
these things for their CHILDREN. Why do we argue all the time about
whether it's okay to have an abortion? Wait until the kid turns sixteen
and buy him a Yamaha. You see them all the time here in Miami, riding

this site, I've remembered the days of my twisted youth, when I dreamed
of traveling the world as the Apostle of Hops, drinking myself silly
in the great beer towns of the world, waking in their gutters, and penning
beery screeds intended to connect the dots between bad American beer
and the same sickness of heart that resulted in dumbed-down cartoons,
slow cars, gun control, and Jimmy Carter.
Real beer is
made from barley. Generally. You can also make it with wheat. I'm sure
that if you look around hard enough, you can find legitimate, quality
beer made from almost anything, but bizarre niche brews aside, good
beer does not contain corn or rice. The things Budweiser and all the
other big-money American beers are made from.
counters made their way into the beer industry like beer-souring bacteria
infiltrating a tank of fermenting wort, and they realized two things:
1) you can make beer cheaper if you use crappy ingredients, and 2) the
American public will drink raw sewage if you pimp it during football
talk about "the American public" as if it were some kind of
slack-jawed, Guess-wearing brain trust. Politicians, many of whom got
started as jury-ass-kissing trial lawyers, are always on TV saying "The
American Public is too smart for THIS," and "The American
Public is too smart for THAT." Well, guess what? If the American
Public were a person, it would have to sleep in a bed with rails, wearing
a hockey helmet. The American Public is the same bunch of goofs who
made Jerry Springer rich and re-elected Bill Clinton.

Finally met my blogdaddy
last night - Tim Blair - who
crashed at Casa Tex for the evening. In return for inhabiting the spare
room and the pleasure of my stimulating company, the Good Blogger Blair
provided large quantities of beer, wine and pizza.
Much intense discussion
ensued, stories swapped and whatnot. Blogger Blair provided some very
interesting off-the-record info about certain individuals. The tale relating
to a particular american blogger might be the funniest thing I've heard

He even left all the
spare booze behind, what a guy......................
Robert Fisk is generally
too idiotic and tedious to comment on, but this
column promotes little other than nausea. He's managed to write a
fawning tribute to Osama and his boyz......
But for Israelis,
there is one big error in all this. By responding to al-Qa'ida's wicked
assault on its civilians, it is taking on a mighty big opponent. For
Mr bin Laden's men are not the hopeless suiciders that the Palestinians
produce from their foetid refugee camps. The Afghanistan-trained men
of Mr bin Laden's legion do not spring from the squalor of Gaza or the
occupied masses of the West Bank. They are ruthless, highly motivated,
intelligent just for once, William Safire was right when he called
them "vicious warriors" and they may be more than a
match for Israel's third-rate intelligence men. Israel's rabble of an
army can kill child stone-throwers with ease. Al-Qa'ida is a quite different
opponent. And if Mr Sharon wants to take on Mr bin Laden, he is ensuring
that Israel goes to war with its most dangerous enemy in 54 years. Better
by far to let the Americans tackle al-Qa'ida and even they don't
seem to be all that successful than bring Israel into the battle.
Ooooooh, scary guys
Bob. Bin Laden's brigade ran like a pack of arse-scratching zoo-monkeys
when faced with American soldiers. America and Israel could turn the
entire muslim world into fertilizer if they wanted to, you Osama-loving
surrender-weasel. This is why the brave muslim warriors go after
civilian targets Bob - because they're a pack of chickenshit neanderthal
cavemen who are great at beating up women and blowing up schoolkids, and
piss their unwashed trousers every time they face someone with a weapon.
Send these filthy
al-Qa'ida goat-humpers up against an Israeli and American military target
and see how long it is before their wahhabist asses are used as lawn furniture.
Go on, I dare you, you "vicious warrior" guys.......
got here first. Heh

The reason is that
the Arabs will not tolerate a Jewish presence in their states or anywhere
in the Middle East. This is the source of the Middle East problem -
Islam's war against the infidels; the Arabs' hatred of Jews. The Middle
East conflict is not about Israel's occupation of the territories; it
is about the refusal of the Arabs to make peace with Israel, which is
an expression of their desire to destroy the Jewish state.
The Palestine Liberation
Organization was created in 1964, sixteen years after the establishment
of Israel and the first Arab aggression. The Palestine liberation movement
was created at a time the West Bank was not under Israeli control but
was part of Jordan. The Palestine liberation movement was not created
so that the Palestinians could achieve self-determination in Jordan,
which comprises 90% of the original Palestine Mandate and which is a
majority Palestinian state. The goal of Palestinian liberation, inscribed
in its original charter, was the "liquidation of the Zionist
presence." In the words of its leaders, it was to "push
the Jews into the sea."
That was the meaning
of liberation then; it is the meaning of suicide bombing now. The
root cause of the Middle East conflict is Arab and Islamic Jew-hatred.
It is the Nazi virus revived.
the cause of Palestinian violence against Israel? Noooooooooo
Fallaci, as she blasts this worthless collection of terrorist-loving
you will always wind up systematically betrayed. This eternal terrorist
who knows only how to be a terrorist (while keeping himself safe) and
who during the Seventies, that is when I interviewed him, even trained
the terrorists of Baader-Meinhof. With them, children ten years of age.
Poor children. (Now he trains them to become suicide bombers. A hundred
baby suicide bombers are in the works: a hundred!). This weathercock
who keeps his wife at Paris, served and revered like a queen, and keeps
his people down in the s***. He takes them out of the s*** only to send
them to die, to kill and to die, like the eighteen year old girls who
in order to earn equality with the fate of their victims. And yet many
Italians love him, yes. Just like they loved Mussolini. And many other
Europeans do the same.
I find it shameful
and see in all this the rise of a new fascism, a new nazism. A fascism,
a nazism, that much more grim and revolting because it is conducted
and nourished by those who hypocritically pose as do-gooders, progressives,
communists, pacifists, Catholics or rather Christians, and who have
the gall to label a warmonger anyone like me who screams the truth.

is a stunner. Read it, damn you.

The Age actually has
a swag of good opinion pieces on the same day. Ye gods!
First up, the often
Carney lays it out in simple terms for the libs.....
After a week
of spouting nonsense that hurt his own credibility and that of his party,
Robert Doyle on Saturday night at last talked sense. "We need to
learn from this," he told the Liberal Party faithful. "We
need to learn we can't sit back for three years and try to do it all
at the last moment."
For the Victorian
Liberals, this piece of basic common sense is a revelation. They have
indeed spent their time in opposition fiddling about - scheming, bitching
and refusing to accept the verdict of the people back in 1999.
Surely now the
Liberal Party will get it. Politics is not a game. It is about having
principles and policies, and working hard. It is about going out into
the community and finding out what matters to people and what needs
to be done.
It is not about
being opportunistic and pretending that flim-flam is substance. It is
not about changing one leader for another and then convincing yourself
that with that simple act the party has done all that is needed to make
itself viable with voters....
in the future the Bracks Government, today looking sharper, more astute
and unquestionably more popular than any previous Victorian government,
will one day look careworn and endangered. This is just the nature of
ABC election analyst
Green chimes in, as does Labor heavyweight (ho, ho) Robert
in Victorian Labor politics is a regular occurrence. Labor must never
go back to the old ways of being good at spending money but not at raising
it. After finally getting out of debt and well and truly matching their
conservative opponents, now is not the time for ward-heeler mentality
Good reading. Well

Check out this loon
in today's Sydney Morning Herald letters page
suggestion (Letters, November 30-December 1) that the so-called "Palestinian
terrorists" are "only interested in the destruction of the
Jewish people and Israel" is about as convincing as saying the
French resistance in World War II was "only interested in the destruction
of the German people and Germany". After all, they too were legitimately
resisting an illegal foreign military occupation.
By Segal's logic,
the Kuwaitis were terrorists for resisting the Iraqi invasion. So too
must have been the Afghans who resisted the Soviet invasion and the
Jews who resisted Hitler. Of course, let's not forget those "terrorists"
in South Africa who resisted apartheid and the Aborigines who resisted
Come on, Segal.
Stop blaming the victims for the crimes of their attackers.
Isaac Boxx, Austin
(USA), November 30.
How wrong of us to
think that suicide bombers are terrorists. They were merely delivering
righteous justice to their oppressors (cleverly disguised as schoolchildren
on buses and young mothers in cafes). All hail brave, noble Hamas!!
