Where Everybody Knows You Name (Evening Open Thread)

Aug 12, 2016

Anyone who lived through the 80s probably knows this song by heart. Or, at least they think they do. When you listen to the whole thing, you hear some things that make you really realize why paranoid-about-evangelical-rage TV executives might have encouraged the TV Show Cheers to use a more than slightly altered version.

 

Can we talk about the line, “And your husband wants to be a girl?” I’m thinking that Sam and Diane never would have approved such a radically liberal song lyric, and Carla would have plotzed! On the other hand, Norm would have just quietly smiled.

But, we’re definitely glad to see a gathering of what I personally feel are most of the most astute blog commentariat of the last decade, gathered together in one place, where everybody know’s your (screen) name.

Your Weekend of Weekends.

UnkaWillbur - May 26, 2017

Here' some links to nosh on, to start of your weekend. I hope everyone's weekend is great; me, myself, I'm planning on jumping out of a perfectly…

  • SpiffyTheValiant

    Cheers πŸ™‚

  • SpiffyTheValiant

    Where everybody knows your name and their always glad you came. πŸ˜‰

  • Blue Basilisk

    Hey there, everyone! Glad I was able to find you guys again. Truthfully it was kind of an accident. πŸ˜›

    • SpiffyTheValiant

      ^_- A happy accident then.

      • Blue Basilisk

        Very happy! So hard to keep up when everyone has private profiles. πŸ˜› Luckily I remembered that MVT was on my follow/follower list and he had posted here recently! Thanks MVT!

        • SpiffyTheValiant

          Lol yeah we all went private for TBR. Maybe we should free the profiles?

          • EdgarHF

            What? And show off all my up votes?

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            lmao

    • Nancy

      it’s amazing how we all manage to find ourselves in the same place sooner or later.

      • SpiffyTheValiant

        Birds of a feather flock together.

        • Nancy

          yup!

      • EdgarHF

        Even more amazing we did not plan it.

        • Nancy

          right? as long as someone us had emails and info of where to find people-we managed to get it together. I know many of us learned the hard way from the Huff melt down. never again-we exchanged emails and FB etc. just incase this happened again.

          • lindajoyous

            I stayed at Huffpost a little longer and didn’t know where everyone went to. Found most of you at RawStory!

          • Nancy

            that was awful to get up one day and be locked out unless you signed up with FB. good you found us Linda!

          • EdgarHF

            That FB crap is why I ended up at C&L.

          • Nancy

            I took a couple of detours but ended up there when I got banned from Raw.

          • EdgarHF

            I work as an IT Engineer at a company that has over 350,000 employees. I keep my politics to myself at work. I was not about to show my ass to my employer on FB. I believed it was done to silence people.

          • Nancy

            there really is no privacy anymore when they can ask for your passwords to all social media accounts in order to get a job.
            very dangerous to have these accounts when you look at where this is headed, never mind what’s happening now.

          • EdgarHF

            It’s worse than most people think. It really is 1984.

          • Nancy

            you would know too, given your involvement with the industry.

          • lindajoyous

            Yes, I am so glad to find everyone Nancy!

          • Nancy

            and I you!

        • 17

          Actually we did, while it was happening. Edwin and I knew where to bring everyone while the fight was still in progress. It’s not an accident that we’re all here this quickly.

  • EdgarHF

    I never gave the Cheers song much thought, after listening to this version I might just rearrange it for the Guitar.

  • SpiffyTheValiant

    oh geez. I cracked 40k comments. I have no life ;/

    • lindajoyous

      Lol, awe!

      • SpiffyTheValiant

        <3 πŸ™‚

        • lindajoyous

          πŸ™‚

    • Blue Basilisk

      But now your power level is over 40,000!

      • SpiffyTheValiant

        lmao yes.

    • EdgarHF

      I’m too lazy to make 40k comments, but still no life.

      • SpiffyTheValiant

        <3

      • Nevin

        Hi Edgar. Glad you found this place.

        • EdgarHF

          Thanks Nev. I left the other place on my own so did not even know everyone had left. Too much crazy.

          • Nevin

            That’s what happens when the inmates run the asylum. πŸ˜‰

          • EdgarHF

            I saw crazy there two previous times and thought of leaving, but I liked the commenters too much to leave.

    • cathyx

      You should see how many Nancy has.

      • SpiffyTheValiant

        lol well I feel better now.

    • lindajoyous

      Sorry I misread your comment, wow you have alot!

      • SpiffyTheValiant

        lol yup

    • Nancy

      or, you have a very full, rich life with a lot of interesting things to say!

      • SpiffyTheValiant

        <3 lol thanks.

        • Nancy

          considering I have so many, as cathy pointed out, in fact doubled yours, I prefer to see it in that light.

          πŸ˜‰

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            lol well you’ve also been around longer.

          • Nancy

            not really we both signed up for disqus at the same time. I spent a lot of time on blogs that weren’t chat rooms and the count goes through the roof in that case. ET was good for a few thousand.

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            <3

    • Nevin

      Over how long a time period?

      • Nancy

        exactly…

        • Nevin

          After the first incident at TBR I deleted my account. I’ve resurrected Nevin probably 3 times.

          • Nancy

            lol. I don’t delete my account-I just move on!

          • Nevin

            I was determined I was not going to post anywhere forever.

          • Nancy

            I only did it once actually when Keith banned me…I thought I had to delete my account. who knew-I’d never been banned before.

          • Nevin

            Keith and I had an epic blowout with one another. Thankfully people saw it. Don’t mess with a fucking Taurus.

          • Nancy

            lmao…who didn’t jesus…that place was wild.

          • Nevin

            It was definitely an asylum. Guess Neb and Ricki modeled theirs after Keith’s.

          • Nancy

            it feel a lot alike in many ways.
            Keith doesn’t have the personality to have a blog either.

          • Nevin

            Most people that have power shouldn’t.

          • Nancy

            exactly.

          • smkngman3

            5-6

    • I’m a piker, in comparison. Even if you count my first Disqus account, I’m not even at half that number!

      • SpiffyTheValiant

        lol such a quiet host <3

    • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

      We still loves ya.

      • SpiffyTheValiant

        <3 My Toad.

        • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

          How are you tonight?

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            <3 sleepy. still battling the allergies. how are you?

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            I hate allergies. I use the salt/baking powder sinus rinses for that, helps a bit. I hope they clear up soon.

            Ok, tired. Bored at work, then fires again.

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            awe <3

  • Nancy

    …oh dear.
    can we think of names for these guys?

    • EdgarHF

      How about H.S. dropouts?

      • Nancy

        that pretty much covers it Edgar.
        why bother naming them beyond that.

        • EdgarHF

          Full disclosure, although I went back to school and got a B.A. after doing a bit in The Marine Corps, I am a H.S. dropout myself:-)

          • As am I. I was unfulfilled by HS, and dropped out, worked for a couple years, got a GED and went to college.

          • EdgarHF

            I never even got the GED, because I was a veteran public universities in my state (IL) had to admit me. Then it was up to me to make the grade.

          • Nancy

            I was drunk for high school and the next 30 years. pretty difficult to attend class and get anything happening when I was drunk/hungover/drunk/hungover…

          • EdgarHF

            lol. I was a stoner, no hangovers:-)

          • Nancy

            I wish…too paranoid when I smoked to be able to enjoy it.

          • EdgarHF

            I thought paranoid was supposed to be the fun part.

          • Nancy

            lol…not for me.
            hard as I tried-it just wasn’t a fit. I even tried again a year or so ago…no change ;-(

          • EdgarHF

            Not everything is for everyone.

          • Nancy

            I was sad actually-it would have been great to find something to enjoy every now and then as I don’t drink anymore. sometimes losing your mind is really lovely.

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            Mushrooms? Peyote?

          • Nancy

            that’s a commitment-something that is a little less time consuming. a couple of hits and I can function. pot would have been perfect.

          • Nancy

            I know a lot of very educated people that are really dumb and a lot of very smart people that don’t have their high school diploma.

    • “People who have been systemically made ignorant, over 4 decades, and given only two choices, by a collusion of wealthy interests” ???

      • Nancy

        that pretty much nails it. it’s sad to even make fun of them given how engineered this whole this has been and how many of us didn’t stand a chance.

        • Yeah, if there’s anything that truly infuriates me about our current political situation is that so many people have been trapped ij mazes of pure ignorance, yet convinced they know exactly what’s going on. πŸ™

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            There’s a lot of anger and frustration but people have been indoctrinated to believe free markets good / sochulism bad / religion etc.

          • Nancy

            it’s always worked best for leaders when their base was kept dumbed down.

    • SpiffyTheValiant

      Vampire, future heart attack victim, and Weeds. (skinny like one and no one wants them around.)

      • Nancy

          Evening Daniel. How are you tonight?

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            Same ole, kinda warm again these last few days. Yourself?

          • Nevin

            I’m tired of the heat. I would like to go on a long vacation and never return.

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            It was chilly earlier in the week but it warmed up yesterday. I agree on the long vacay though.

          • Nevin

            At least you have cooled off.

    • Nancy

      that is really cool…crazy!

      So meta!

    And this is why the FBI and Hillary asking for electronic backdoors is fucking STUPID

    Microsoft has inadvertently demonstrated the intrinsic security problem of including a universal backdoor in its software after it accidentally leaked its so-called “golden key”β€”which allows users to unlock any device that’s supposedly protected by Secure Boot, such as phones and tablets.

    The key basically allows anyone to bypass the provisions Microsoft has put in place ostensibly to prevent malicious versions of Windows from being installed, on any device running Windows 8.1 and upwards with Secure Boot enabled.

    And while this means that enterprising users will be able to install any operating systemβ€”Linux, for instanceβ€”on their Windows tablet, it also allows bad actors with physical access to a machine to install bootkits and rootkits at deep levels. Worse, according to the security researchers who found the keys, this is a decision Microsoft may be unable to reverse.

    The golden keys were found by MY123 and Slipstream in March this year. They’ve just posted, on a rather funky website, a description both of Microsoft’s security errors and of its seeming reluctance to patch the issue. The researchers note that this snafu is a real-world demonstration of the lack of wisdom in the FBI’s recent demands for universal backdoors in Apple’s devices.

    “Congressional leaders briefed last year on Russia hacking Dems: report”

    “Since the DNC revealed the hack to the public and it has become clearer
    to the larger intelligence community that Russia was the likely actor,”

    I believe Guccifer “revealed” the hack and Obama is blaming the”Russians” without any proof!

    “Obama appeared to echo the position of the Director of National
    Intelligence James Clapper, who said the U.S. was not ready to blame
    Russia for the hack.”

    No proof but you look like a fool, so blame and sanction Russia for something the US does everyday, to US!

      Gotta start the fear mongering early. Look how long they’ve been working on Iran. So invade Iran first then Russia.

      • smkngman3

        Why not China first?

        • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

          Too much landmass. They’re probably waiting on the yuan to collapse as well considering how they’ve been propping up their economy for years.

          • smkngman3

            But while dealing with Iran and Russia, China will have taken control of the South China sea and who knows what else!

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            We have Japan there and if they get some fallout we can claim it’s our “responsibility” to help them.

          • smkngman3

            After fighting Iran AND Russia, what will our military resources be capable of.

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            Never underestimate the power of propaganda from the politicians and the media that enables them.

            it sure awakened the old fears in her base-that was too easy.

    • Nancy

      and for gawd’s sake don’t address what was in these email!!!

      • smkngman3

        What impressed me was how the DNC found they were hacked and not only announced it, but released the emails themselves.

        • Nancy

          what?

            /s

          • Nancy

            I wasn’t sure where you were going-the thing I though first was that supposedly one of the leakers did work for the DNC. that caught me off guard!

          • smkngman3

            The DNC only admitted they were hacked after we already read the emails.

          • Nancy

            right…that’s some amazing spin doctoring gone on there!

    • Yeah, the whole red-baiting thing is such utter bullshit, preying on peoples’ technological ignorance.

      I’ve looked at the so-called technical evidence and 35 years of computer and network experience screams, “That’s All Bullshit!”

      The Russians are not the aggressor / trouble making nation , we are . The sanctions against the Russians have cost the U.S. nothing , but it has cost the Europeans , they continue to play right along none the less .

            They made her honorary chair or whatever the title was as well.

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            Yes, honorary. supposedly not paid.

            THEN WHAT IS THE FUCKING POINT?! :))

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            To give her cred and let people know they won’t abandon her.

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            yup

      I was using my creative side and saw her spinning in that direction. I’m just saying.

  • Criminey! It’s really starting to look like the only secret to good Star Wars films is “Don’t let George Lucas Be Involved.”

    https://youtu.be/frdj1zb9sMY

    • Nevin

      I’ve never watched a Star Wars movie.

      • You’ve missed out. There’s two or three very fine ones.

        • Nevin

          I was into Star Trek.

          • So was I, I guarantee you more than you (How many Trek conventions did you attend before 1976? How many did you attend in costume?)

            I guess I’m just not the kind of person who believe that love is only one at a time. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›

          • Nevin

            Are you fucking serious? None.

          • 3, 2 in costume (Mr. Spock and Scotty). 1 for my 8th birthday, two in my 9th year. I stopped counting after that because it was 2-3 conventions (Trek, Literary, Media, etc) a year, after that, until the early 90s.

          • notisaidthepig

            I do prefer Star Trek. However, I’ll never forget when I first saw Star Wars in the summer of ’77. It was an unforgettable rite of passage for a kid who loved sci-fi.

          • And, if you get the unadulterated version, it still holds up, these several decades later. It’s not a masterpiece of cinema, but it was made by a group of people (George Lucas not included) who were consummate cinematic pros and at the top of their artistic game.

          • Nevin

            Now you have convinced me I probably should watch them.

          • Get the “Harmy’s Despecialized Editions” of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. You’ll have to “torrent” them, but you’ll thank yourself for not exposing yourself to Lucas’ awful adulterated versions.
            .

          • Nevin

            Definitely will do.

          • notisaidthepig

            The geek is strong in this one.

          • Like a Badge of Honor. Well, with Cheerleaders and Jocks calling themselves geeks, these days, more like a badge of horror, but…

          • notisaidthepig

            The first one was awesome because it was the first one. Something new on the sci-fi landscape. The second one, The Empire Strikes Back, is my favorite. It’s a dark story. I like dark and bleak stuff.

          • Stylistically, Star Wars is a great “Japanese Western” Empire is a great “WWII War Film.”

          • A bit about the “despecialized” editions.
            (as you can, Lucas fucked up more than just the story)

            Yeah, Phantom Menace is not that great.

    • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

      I’m not sure about this one, they had to reshoot a lot of it to make it a “four quadrant” movie instead of the original war movie it was supposed to be.

      • notisaidthepig

        Hi, Daniel. It’s good to see you. I heard something awful about you being eaten. Weird.

        What does that mean “four quadrant”? Can you explain? I’m curious.

        • Nevin

          That’s how I ate him.

        • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

          Adults, children, male, female. Basically as bland as possible to try to appeal to everyone. It was filmed and written as an actual war movie so it only appealed to at most two quadrants so Disney is having them change it.

          • That’s not good to hear. The trailer seems like a decent war film, and that’s what seems appealing about it: It seems Very Empire…

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            That’s why they’re doing extended reshoots. So I’m conflicted on it.

          • notisaidthepig

            Ah, Disney. One of many evil empires.

    Edwin is my real name. I can not tell a lie.

      my daughter’s middle name is Edwina.
      she isn’t pleased with me over that.

      • notisaidthepig

        I can’t say I blame her. Oink!

        • Nancy

          it was actually a joke with my sister and I-long story, and I named her after my sister and our joke with each other!
          still not pleases, even knowing that!

          • notisaidthepig

            I disliked my real name something fierce when I was younger because it was quite…unusual. Not weird, just….different. My siblings all had rather typical Spanish names. However, once I became an adult, I grew to love my name. It’s got a literary pedigree which seems appropriate for an English teacher.

          • 17

            Fess up…Arnold Ziffel.

          • notisaidthepig

            That’s an awfully good guess!

      • The_Fixer

        Did you get that from Absolutely Fabulous? πŸ™‚

        • Nancy

          no it was from the phrase “Edwina, back in bowl”
          I can’t remember the name of the movie-it has Lily Tomlin in it.

          • The_Fixer

            Ah! Too bad she doesn’t get the humor in it.

          Is it that bad?

          I had a friend whose nickname was Goog. She preferred it to her real name. I never thought much about it until one day my other friend asked WTF is her real name? (It was a heavy German name, Gudrin or something like that.)

          • Nevin

            It’s an Irish name. My mom read Spock and he said weird names cause problems for kids in school.

          • Edwin

            It may have been a different name. I just remembering thinking it was a heavy and strange German name, like from 1360 in a dark ages Bavarian village

          • The_Fixer

            Yeah, I have had to deal with pushy and needy customers. Musicians gig on the weekends, and the second part of the week has me pretty busy fixing their stuff so they can haul it to their gig and have people pour beer on it.

          • The_Fixer

            One of the worst was when my boss (also a musician) brought me a 32-channel digital mixing board into which someone had spilled some kind of soda. Carbonic acid eats electronic components rather quickly.

          • notisaidthepig

            Fixer, I needed you a coupe of weeks ago. I bought an amplifier and had a devil of a time getting it hooked up with some prewired surround sound system in my new home. It’s rather simple but for a klutz like me….o la la! What a nightmare!

          • The_Fixer

            Yes, I could have helped with that. I fix those, too. And am kind of a sound buff, have a killer old stereo system I’ve built up over the years. Some of the components date to the early ’60s. Great stuff. Being as I am a music enthusiast, a good stereo is important to me.

          • notisaidthepig

            An older brother came through for me. I am not good with that kind of stuff.

            Mac amps?

          • The_Fixer

            I’m not a doctor! The old joke is that only doctors have enough money to buy those. I have a pair of Dynaco Stereo 70s. People with more money than sense pooh-pooh Stereo 70s, but it really is a great amp once you fix a few shortcomings (which I have done).

            The speakers are an interesting hodge-podge, Utah’s from the 60s, along with some more modern, but good mid/tweet drivers. The Tuner/Preamp is more modern, from the late 80s, a modified NAD. Turntable is an AR XA, the most manual turntable in the world. My CD player needs a new laser, not using it ATM (it’s an Emerson, believe it or not, made back when they first came out and overbuilt them). Right now, I use my computer to play CDs, it has a great SoundBlaster 128 card.

            I also have a cassette deck, but I have not used it in years. I only had it for convenience, I was never impressed by the format.

            Best of all, I have very little money invested in the whole thing.

          • smkngman3

            A friend used to buy any condition Mac tube amp that came through his door. Most people didn’t know that about once a year Mac would bring any of their old amps back to new specs only charging for tubes if necessary.

            When Les Paul guitars fell out of favor,he would buy them for 50-150 bucks. I saw his collection once of over, at that time, 150+.

          • The_Fixer

            I once worked on a friend’s Mac. He got it from a doctor, of course. Had a beautiful chrome chassis. After I fixed it, I waxed the chassis. He was impressed. Macs actually deserve the reputation that they have, they are excellent. They are even building brand new classic Mac tube amps these days, and they get a lot of money for them.

            One of my bosses has a Les Paul from the ’70s. Beautiful instrument and he loves it. I am sure your friend has got a collection worth big bucks now, they are back in favor (as are a lot of old instruments).

            A lot of old instruments and electronics are in demand and fetch good money. Even the stuff that was kind of cruddy. Slap the word “vintage” in the For Sale ad, and people can’t whip out their wallets fast enough, whether it’s good stuff or not.

            His retirement fund.

            Some, when they became popular again, were worth several grand.

            He also bought the old Altec metal PA horns when everyone was going to fiberglass because of the ring. Easy to get rid of the ring by using auto body undercoating.

            They became quite popular oversea, like in Korea.

        • notisaidthepig

          So wise!

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            No, just lazy πŸ˜€

      • notisaidthepig

        I give up!

  • MsPythia

    πŸ˜€ I love this article! I’m willing to bet that If Cheers was real life rather than TV that at least one of the regulars or workers at the bar had a secret life he/she might have loved to openly share with everyone — had they felt they would be dealing with open hearts and minds. πŸ˜€

    • Nevin

      We all have secret lives. We just choose to let you know a part of it.

      • MsPythia

        True — but many people who feel different have secret lives with some people, when in fact it’s their true lives — their deepest happiness.

    • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

      Glad you made it.

  • notisaidthepig

    No one would ever guess my real name. Ever. Even though you all have heard it many times. However, it’s unlikely you’ve ever known someone with my name. It’s quite the riddle. Here’s a clue: I’m one of three.

    • Nancy

      musketeers?

    • MsPythia

      Piggie. I’ll never blow yer house down.

      • notisaidthepig

        Oink!

      • Nevin

        Says the wolf.

        • MsPythia

          Not a wolf — an Oracle!

          • Nevin

            Still hearing voices I see.

          • MsPythia

            And seeing visions. It’s my JOB. But I get to do it in flowing robes and wearing precious oils, so it’s not a bad gig.

    • Nancy

      Athos, Porthos, or Aramis?

      • notisaidthepig

        “A” names are the best, don’t you think?

        • Nancy

          Athos?

          • notisaidthepig

            That didn’t take long at all!

          • Nancy

            lol, you gave very good clues.
            now how about that car?

            love that name-suits your look. very exotic!

          • The_Fixer

            That’s a cool name. Unusual and sophisticated.

      • MsPythia

        I like that. All for one, and one for all!

        • notisaidthepig

          Indeed!

        • Nancy

          could also be Aramis…he’s got an “a” name

          • notisaidthepig

            You’re too smart!

          • Nancy

            I have my moments.

          • notisaidthepig

            Yeah, like all the time!

          • Nancy

            you are being too kind…
            thanks though!

          • notisaidthepig

            we are awesome!

          • Nancy

            indeed we are!
            it’s good!
            are you so excited? I am!!!

          • notisaidthepig

            yep

          • MsPythia

            I feel pretty excellent.

          • Nancy

            nice! that’s great-any particular reason?

          • MsPythia

            I’m just enjoying the vibe here.

          • Nancy

            it is so laid back and relaxed. coke vs pot.

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            lol

          • Nancy

            or meth?

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            Isn’t that a conservative thing πŸ˜‰

          • Nancy

            aren’t people like that closet conservatives? progressives don’t behave like that.

    • Nevin

      Tres

    • The_Fixer

      Oh, I remember we had a discussion about this at the old place. It’s not Aramis, so it must be Porthos? No, we don’t hear that all the time. D’Artangon? That, neither.

    • Your name is NiΓ±a? πŸ˜‰

      • notisaidthepig

        Not quite….Read downthread.

        • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

          I think he’s making a Cristopher Columbus joke there.

          • Nancy

            lol, I thought so too.

          • notisaidthepig

            Yes, and I’m ignoring it!

          • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

            Wise man.

      • Nancy

        if we were naming 3 ships-that might have been in the running along with Pinta and Santa Maria!

    • MeanValueTheorem

      Jesus?

  • Nevin

    I’m going back to my show. Just want to say, it takes intelligent people to be as witty and funny as you guys.

    • Nancy

      enjoy Blue!
      you were fun tonight too!

    • notisaidthepig

      Good night!

    • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

      Nighty night.

        Nite Daniel.

    • The_Fixer

      ‘Night, Blue!

      • Nevin

        Nite Fixer. You are a pleasure to see and read your comments.

        • The_Fixer

          {uncontrollable blushing} Aw, I can say the same about you, and will!

          • Nevin

            You look cute with a little blush on your cheeks.

    • lindajoyous

      Goodnight Blue!

      • Nevin

        Nite Linda. Always a joy to see you.

        • lindajoyous

          And same to you too Blue!

        Love your humor Smokey.

  • smkngman3
    • Nevin

      LMAO. Fuck you.

      • Nancy

        hahahaha…

        • Nevin

          Smokey lays in wait. I swear to god it googled “intelligent people” immediate after my posting.

          • Nancy

            still laughing!

    • Nancy

      are these some of your qualities?

      • smkngman3

        The swearing came later in life.

        But I was always a night person.

        • Nancy

          better late than never!
          I had my mouth washed out with sunlight soap for saying “fuck” when I was 5.
          I think that backfired and just made me say it more!

          • smkngman3

            I got the soap treatment without saying ‘fuck”

            .

          • Nancy

            you were a handful?

          • smkngman3

            My older sister was the pita handful.

            I was the good kid.

          • Nancy

            but got the soap anyway…
            hmmm. something’s wrong with this picture.

          • smkngman3

            Didn’t particularly like the taste of soap.

          • Nancy

            such a barbaric thing to do.
            I taught my daughter all the “bad words” when she was two-she learned when it was appropriate to say them and who it was ok to say them with, as well as why not with others.
            she hardly swears as an adult.

          • smkngman3

            Close neighborhood.

            Never could tell which mom would rat you out!

            Jimmys mom was cool. After we turned 18 we could drink beer and smoke pot in her basement.

          • Nancy

            there was always the one mom…thanks god for that family.

          • smkngman3

            My rebellion started later than most because I didn’t go to the local HS but had to travel an hour each way. No bs allowed in my HS!

          • MsPythia

            Can I do that tomorrow evening? I’ll have some time to relax then. I want to post here tonight, and I’ve got some work stuff tomorrow during the day. Pick out the story you want me to read and I will tomorrow night! I do want to read some of them — is it the new one you’re working on? Or a finished one?

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            Tomorrow or whenever you have time, is good. Hmm I have lots of stories. πŸ™‚ Be hard to pick out one. Probably best to give you a finished one though? You prefer straight or yaoi?

          • MsPythia

            You choose. Hit me with your best one!

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            @.@ Hmm I don’t know which is my bestest one. Will look and sees.

          • MsPythia

            Well, then the one you’ve gotten the most feedback on — I know you’ve got a fan club going on there. Give me the one that got the most praise! πŸ™‚

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            Well that one has a lot of lemons. If we are going by most reviews then it would That’s My Boy. I think I”ll link you to that one and Dangerous Love. (I consider Dangerous Love to be my best yaoi story.) Then you could choose which you want to read first.

            Of course i put warnings before the lemons before and after so that you can skip them, if you want. Readers were just really into them that story, so I kinda went really overboard with them. :)) I got a lot of practice out of it though.

        • notisaidthepig

          Same here. Yet it’s something we may never know. I did see something today on the other thread that pointed out Bernie in the DNC convention audience when $hillary thanked him for endorsing her. He looked so miserable. Never cracked a smile. Something is VERY off about all this.

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            Well no one would crack a smile for that bitch.

          • Nancy

            that’s when I knew something was very wrong. I also noticed that he was perspiring heavily when he “endorsed her” and I thought that wasn’t like the man who spoke in front of thousands without so much as a bead of perspiration to be found.

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            His body was fighting. DON’T DO IT. His body said lol.

          • Nancy

            yup.

            Body language expert analyzed it.

            I bet. it was awful and very clear that it went against everything he believed.

            I know. That poor man.

          • Rich H

            She poisoned him and said, Finish My Coronation Speech in Five Minutes or Less and we’ll give you the antidote.

          • Nancy

            excellent.

          • MsPythia

            No, they threatened him some other way. Probably something having to do with family. Hillary Clinton is a true monster. How could any sane person vote for her?

          • MsPythia

            Maybe they did threaten him. Look at how other people who have thwarted them have been dropping dead! But dammit, you don’t say revolution unless you’re willing to risk all. I’m serious. That word says you’ve weighed all options, and this is it. Ultimately that is not the road he took, and while I’m grateful he woke so many people up, he needed to make a good closure on what he tried to do, and this wasn’t that.

        • SpiffyTheValiant

          Looks like one of the emails says they threatened his wife’s life. Haven’t seen it myself. but wouldn’t shock me.

          • Nancy

            yes, I am sure something that bad had to be said to him. that fucking smug bitch is evil.

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            yup

          • Dosido3

            Oh you’ve just been listening to years of RW hate for her. None of that is true.

          • Nancy

            they are like the religious nuts-any thing you point out about their religion is immediately debunked as the voice of the deil and pushed aside. they have any criticism of them carefully put into places like you just used. they are masters of lies and deception. frightening.

          • Dosido3

            Didn’t I tell you about my new job? πŸ˜‰

          • Nancy

            congrats…

            Ye–no! You are a sexist for thinking that!

          • Nancy

            you will make lots of money!!!

          • Dosido3

            Oh yeah…I’ll get the Big Money. Then I can donate to the Clinton Foundation, maybe get a cushy IT job in the State Dept. !

          • Rich H

            In a video posted on an earlier thread there’s a close up of Bernie’s face giving the “select Hillary” speech at the convention and it looks like he’s got a cut and bruise on it that’s obviously been covered (as much as possible) by make up.

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            yep ms showed me that.

          • I’d like to believe that’s what happened, I really would. But I think the sad truth is, like so many people, he just put party loyalty above morals.

          • Rich H

            I agree, but it wouldn’t be hard to believe the Clinton’s wanted to make a point.

          • No, it’s not hard to believe, and that’s damn scary.

          • Nancy

            that makes me cry thinking that anyone would hit him. he’s Bernie-he’s also 74 years old-who the fuck behaves like that.
            just so sickening.

          • MsPythia

            Yeah, that gash on his face has never been explained. It’s no mere shaving cut.

          • Dosido3

            I have been thinking that it could be as simple as walking into something. People that age have thinner skin.

          • MsPythia

            I don’t know. It seemed suspiciously timed — but you never know. He has not said a word though. If he had a accident, I feel like he would have said so. Bernie is not a bullshitter, that’s for sure. His silence over what happened that night makes me suspect the worst.

          • Edwin

            Hillary helped him tidy up before he hit the stage.

      • MsPythia

        No. He took our money and lots of our time. He has refused to fight in the face of what we know was a rigged primary. So, as he said, it’s not about him, it’s about us. He should be ashamed for not fighting for what WE worked so hard for.

        • Agreed. I’ve stayed on his FB pages, just so I can call him out every time he posts one of those images lauding progressive values.

          • MsPythia

            He can’t sheep dog many of us. It’s an insult to even try that shit.

    • Edwin
      • Nancy

        unbelievable.

        • Edwin

          Yes and No. We knew we were headed down this road. Nothing surprises me. Sure, it starts at Fox and then everyone is saying it. Those 6 media outfits do different kinds of propaganda for the same ends.

        • kreskin

          Not.

    It’s time for this little piggie to go to bed. Good night, everyone. See you on the other side. Oink!

      See you later.

  • Edwin

    Oops. I can’t seem to help myself.

    By my math you’ll be giving out your next crown on or about August 29~30 +/-, as long as you don’t ban more people in the meantime. I’ve marked it on my calendar. I’d like to see who wins. Ricki and Neb you both have excellent chances to snag it as long as you are quick (and Neb, put the Skittles away.)

    Sorry to have to email, but you banned me, remember.

    PS: everyone is watching. The jig is up. They all read my chatzy screen grabs where you two pounced on me . We all know. Happy blogging.

    • Nancy

      ;-O

    • ROFL

    • Nancy

      you know-it feels like it never happened. I can’t believe we were there for so long and yet it seem like it’s been forever that we are here. I found a minimal adjustment making the move to here.
      really interesting to feel so at home in such a short time. it’s great.

      • Edwin

        This is way better here. Thanks again, Unka.

        Where was it we used to blog again? Memory is fuzzy.

        • Nancy

          seriously…even the soft colour on the page is soothing.

          • Edwin

            like soft candlelight or a spring morning

            It makes our avatars look younger

          • Rich H

            Seriously, wtf is tbr going to do now? Hope to get RS or C&L overflow? I mean, they’d have to actually post articles of substance, several a day, seven days a week. I’ve got to say, I can’t see what their plan is.

          • Nancy

            uh, I think we were the plan.
            heave on the “were” and they will have to really change it up to have it attract posters.
            from where? hell, who knows.

          • Edwin

            An empty spiderweb is no fun for those monsters.

          • Nancy

            not laughing at your trauma-laughing at how you are dealing with it!

          • Edwin

            Trauma-schwauma. It’s a new day. Off to slay some trolls and trash some more dickheads. Onward team!!!!!!!

          • Edwin

            We don’t know and we don’t care (do we?). Maybe they’ll cry their guts out and disappear into a chasm. Fine by me.

          • Rich H

            I get that. You’d think there’d be some sort of self awareness, at least enough to think of what the consequences would be for pulling their stunt.

          • Nancy

            he’s just thought of everything…
            how’s the morning looking?

  • Dosido3

    Hey Unka, I just want to say I really appreciate your writing style. It’s fun to read.

  • The_Fixer

    Oh, it;s so hard to say good night after having so much fun and so many laughs, but alas, I must. Hope everyone has a good night, see ya tomorrow.

    • Nancy

      night Fix! sweet dreams!

    • Left of Eden

      Now those instructions may finally make sense!

      • Nancy

        right?
        I love this…
        right back at ya IKEA!

        • Left of Eden

          I swear, half the time it seems the instructions are translated by someone whose English is as good as my Chinese.

          • Nancy

            I am visually thinking so it’s not too bad but man, they sure can be confusing even at that.

          • Left of Eden

            Good for you. My ex is that way too – assembles the shit without the instructions. I’m much more a paper and pencil guy. In that sense she is far brighter than I.

          • Nancy

            I took drafting-manually, not on a computer, and had to do the drawings…that’s very helpful!

          • Left of Eden

            God damn! I skipped far too much shit in high school – wood shop, metal shop, home ec, and it left me a domestic idiot.

          • Nancy

            who knew that shit would come in handy!?
            this was my first attempt at college. I also took it the second time I tried college. alas. couldn’t keep it together to stay.

          • Left of Eden

            I take Twain’s view of college – that it’s for people who wish to imitate talent they lack.

          • Nancy

            hahahaha…that view does provide comfort to many of us.
            so many ways to learn-not all of us are geared toward that route!

          • Left of Eden

            I went to college for 6 years, and it almost ruined my ability to think outside the rectangle – one of my biggest mistakes! Maybe a good liberal arts college would serve the turn, but I studied accounting and economics – yuck! It introduced a paralysis of mind that I’m still dealing with.

          • Nancy

            wow, I don’t have that brain or aptitude. that’s a tough one for me to wrap my head around.
            I can see how that could be damaging to the creative side of a person. having said that we all love when we find the “creative accountant” to help us at tax time. what other things would you rather have done?

          • Left of Eden

            Not sure. Just feel there was a missed opportunity somewhere. Maybe teaching. I didn’t realize how much I loved literature, philosophy, and history until my formal education was a mote in the mirror. It rendered much of what I was doing, and what I thought was important, an abject futility. A “Thomas Aquinas” moment for me if you will.

          • Nancy

            oh-that is a sobering realization. do you feel like you will be able to change things up and pursue some of the things that excite you?

          • Left of Eden

            That’s the question.

          • Edwin

            I’d rather know how to knit and make fabulous pies.

          • Rich H

            You’ve got me on the baking. That’s another on my to do list.

          • Edwin

            Some things are tricky and some are EZPZ.

          • Edwin

            I took woodshop in grade 8 and the one project I completed (a string winder) was so pathetic to this day seeing it my mind’s eye is hilarious.

          • Rich H

            I have made my own furniture (and for others as well) and I never use plans. I go with what I visualize and just build it.

          • Nancy

            what a talent Rich. I need to get over my insane fear of power tools. I have a huge urge to built things…that would be so rewarding for you I bet.

          • Rich H

            I love making things. Unfortunately my garage is too full of STUFF to do that anymore. Soon though, one way or the other, it’ll all get sorted away and then I can make things again.

          • Nancy

            that’s the thing-there has to be a place or people for all that we create.

          • Rich H

            My garage is full of Other Peoples Stuff. I’ve got to get rid of it. I made a good dent this year (and it got replaced with someone else’s – thanks wife), but by next spring, for sure.

          • Nancy

            oh I misunderstood-no kidding. that’ll be great to have it back to do your thing!

          • Rich H

            Thanks, many, many, years ago, long before I had heard of Ikea, I designed and built furniture that could be assembled without nails, screws, etc… It was all slotted. Tables, chairs, beds, desks. Anyhow, my girlfriend was in college at the time and I thought how convenient it would be to able to assemble and disassemble furniture that could be easily moved and stored (because it would all just be flat pieces) without the hassle of needing all the gromets and tools needed to put them together.

            I was a fine arts major, and I later switched to product design – but that was when I was in my 30’s. I guess I had a knack for it.

          • Nancy

            a knack!? lol, that’s totally skilled and talented-it’s great!
            so ahead of your time.

          • Edwin

            I can’t use tools. I make a mess out of everything.

          • Rich H

            I can’t bake. But I’ll get there eventually.

          • Edwin

            All I can say is through life it’s been nice to be able to cook good meals and eat tasty food. My sister lives on raisin bran, tuna, red peppers and about 8 others things. She can’t cook a thing. That’s just sad.

            While it would be very nifty and fun to be good with tools it hasn’t really hindered my enjoyment of life not being able to.

          • Edwin

            I don’t cut a piece of wood, I destroy it. Never give me a saw of any kind.

          • Edwin

            you should see some of the English on Korean stuff– some of it is laugh out loud in the store stuff

        • Edwin

          Dang. The stuff you don’t see til you refresh

      • Edwin

        Who uses the instructions? It’s all logical.

  • Edwin

    Ok, everyone has to slow down with their commenting. Go over to respond to Rich, come back, and there are 300 new comments. :~>

    (to 16 today at TBR)

    • Nevin

      Edwin, NebDem was a friend of mine. I am a typical Taurus. I am loyal and will do anything for you. I don’t know what went wrong with Neb, but he is not the man I knew. My heart is shattered because a friend became unrecognizable. Neb lied to me. I can accept everything, but lying.

      • Edwin

        Sorry you lost a friend, but he also wasn’t who you thought he was.

        • Nancy

          that’s one hell of an “evolve”

  • Rich H

    Oh no, everyone’s so nice to everyone else. Look at all the up votes for those who say they’re going to bed. What if I say good night and when I check in the morning, no one’s up voted me? What if no one said good night? Ha, I’ll fool them all and stay up all night. That’ll show ’em. Can’t trick me. No sir.

    • Nancy

      well do it in a mess room, while swearing, and you will also be considered intelligent!

      • Rich H

        It amazes me how polite everyone is here. Even me, a fellow who still says please and thank you at a fast food place.

        • Nancy

          I know-it’s great!

          • Rich H

            It’s so unusual. It’s like a time warp. A good time warp.

          • Nancy

            Pleasantville?

        • Annaleigh

          I think I’m the only person I know of who says hi/good morning, and thank you to bus drivers. (Did it a few times yesterday, especially to the county bus driver driving the route I went home on since I was one of the last passengers left and he was almost done for the day). I never hear anyone else do it, unfortunately.

          • Nancy

            that is very nice-I bet they love that!

          • Rich H

            You may be the only one, but I bet it makes you feel good to say it. I always look at the poor, beleaguered workers, making little, and wonder how often people are polite to them.

            Americans aren’t known for that.

          • Edwin

            I even do that sometimes to the Korean bus driver. There is one super-polite bus driver in Seoul and everyone loves to be on his bus. I’ve been on it a couple of times. He’s a young, good-looking guy and he has a microphone and he uses the most polite form of Korean (there are 5 levels of honourifics in the language) and greets everyone as they get on and off the bus. It gives me “buzzy head”

        • Edwin

          Don’t people say please and thank you everywhere?

          • Rich H

            Of course not, Are you joking? I’m pretty sure people are more polite in Korea.

          • Edwin

            Koreans are super polite. (So are Canadians.)

    • Left of Eden

      Wow, that’s some kind of gibbering. Worthy of Poe, really.

      • Rich H

        I’ll take that as a compliment. Thanks.

        • Left of Eden

          From the “Tell-Tale Heart” to your ear.

    • Nevin

      If I see you saying goodnight I will upvote you. If I don’t I will be sad I wasn’t there for you.

      • Rich H

        Aw. thanks.

    • Edwin

      We are the most polite gang ever. Good morning and good night take up half a thread. πŸ™‚

    • Annaleigh

      Good night!

      • Nevin

        Nite Annaleigh. I am amazed with your dedication to our political system and politicians. You are an inspiration.

        • Annaleigh

          Awww, thanks!

    • Edwin

      Good night.

  • Rich H

    Alright, I know it’s late, but there’s still a few kicking around, so I’ll post something I watched today that I really got a kick out of. I’ve never watched this show, not more than a few seconds flipping channels. But this fellow has done an Aces job in his compilation and break down.

    I Wish Everyone Else Was Dead, When it got to personal friends etc…I just pretended it was about Hillary.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_P52G4Kyq5M

    BTW, the same fellow has a few other wonderful vids (I watched three – I know there’s more).

    The two others were “Rat poison and brandy: The 1904 St. Louis Olympic marathon” which I thoroughly enjoyed, and “THE DUMBEST BOY ALIVE.” about a real weightlifting thread where posters were arguing about how many days there are in a week. It’s worth staying to the end.

  • Nancy

    well I am off…thanks for the company!
    sleep well!

    • Rich H

      Good night Nancy. Thanks for the kind words. Sleep well.

    • Nevin

      I was off hours ago. Thank you Nancy for inviting me to this place.

    • Annaleigh

      Nitey nite!

    • Edwin

      Good night.

      • Nevin

        Edwin, you have been humorous tonight.

        • Edwin

          Have I? Must be the heat. Hit 40* with the humidex again today.

          • Nevin

            I loved your dig at the TBR.

          • Edwin

            which one?

  • kreskin

    Gee , what a surprise. US ground troops are in Libya, Pentagon admits . Why not ? Our involvement elsewhere has been such a rip roaring success !

    https://www.rt.com/news/355615-pentagon-admits-to-ground-troops-libya/

    • Fucking warmongering idjits.

      • Edwin

        Why the fuck don’t Americans wake up and see what’s going on. So sad.

        • How can they not notice?

          Cable TV, Cell Phones, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and on and on and on. There are an endless variety of distractions at hand. The rest is at the feet of a people who have be demoralized, deliberately under-educated, made penurious and generally defeated, though none of those are truly valid excuses for not acting.

      I’m just over there now. They’re making quite a spectacle of themselves. I think Ricki is smashed out of her gourd.

      They’re making jokes about waterboarding me in their chatzy room

      I need to buy new laces, the last ones broke when Edwin tried to escape our Chatzy page.

      Damn… must’ve been the waterboarding! Need to wear wellingtons next time!

      • Nevin

        They are fucking idiots. They only have themselves to talk to. What a laughingstock they are. BTW, I had to get that dig into them.

        • Edwin

          You are as mad as one of those bulls that blasts steam out of its nose!!!

          • Nevin

            That’s me. πŸ˜‰

          • Edwin

            Don’t change. They’re total fucking douchbags.

            They’re making jokes about waterboarding me because as a guest at their blog I found 2, 2-hour interrogations in their chatzy room a little weird and excessive, and they somehow think they are normal and I’m the oddball.

          • Nevin

            They are crazy Edwin. They don’t even see the reality they are the only ones on their blog.

          • Edwin

            Quick question: What blogs do you know that routinely hauls their guests into a private chat room to interrogate them?

            I think I need to make a list of all the people they have done that too. I think they did to you Nevin and Spiffy said they did it to her. How many?

            If it has happened to you copy and add your name. Lets make this list. (17 can add the list to his stash of evidence)

            1. Edwin
            2.

          • Nevin

            Hasn’t happened to me. I would tell those fuckers to get lost. I don’t put up with that shit.

          • Edwin

            The thing is, curiosity gets ya. It’s weird, but you want to know what they have to say.

          • Nevin

            I have no desire to hear what they have to say. They are losers that deserve each others company.

          • Edwin

            Yes, but before. I was curious how they were going to spin things.

          • Nevin

            They are just talking to themselves right now. The spin has always been you are wrong and we are right.

            Edwin, I grew up where reputation was important. My granddad said, if you lose your reputation you lose everything. Ricki’s reputation was lost a long time ago. Neb, I don’t know what happened to him, but he decided to swim in the cesspool with Ricki.

          • Edwin

            Yes, I am looking at their page. Total meltdown mode. Looks very trashy.

            They’re referring to all of us as fleas and infections. You hear that everyone, we are fleas and infections.

            We’re infectious “CyberFleas” to them.

            man the whole “locking the door” things interesting…had you not stayed to explain/defend, they wold have accused you of running away because they caught you etc. etc.
            there is no win when arguing with liars like that.

          • Edwin

            Ha ha. I went back in and caught Ricki saying, “he is a total pos,” and, “we should ban him,” and got the screen grabs for all the world to read. I win. (They should have “locked the door” those sick fucks.)

            I guess she was lying earlier when she said, “We love you Edwin.”

          • Nancy

            ahhh yes, the old “come here, go away” thing.
            *eye roll.

          • The_Fixer

            Most crazy people think that everyone else is the problem. And they are crazy people. It fits.

          • Edwin

            I’m sure they know we’ve made at least 2,000 comments about them and as Unka blocked them they can’t come in here and say anything.

    • RTIII

      IK I said I wasn’t going to click there again, but I couldn’t resist. Holy Shit, 222 comments in THREE DAYS!

      There can’t be 20 comments from someone other than Neb or Ricki, all the last many hours are just them posting music, apparently. Reads like they’re both drunk!

      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhahahaha! FUNNY!

      Ah, well, time to move on…

    • The_Fixer

      Ha! There would not have been a ban hammer record to set if those two hadn’t banned people for commenting someplace else. Off the rails, I tells ya! Off the rails!

      • notisaidthepig

        I just can’t get over the irony.

        • The_Fixer

          Crazy people have no sense of irony. To them, “This is different!” and justifiable.

          • notisaidthepig

            A sign of the crazy for sure.

          • Nancy

            that’s the whole thing right there. it’s different because it’s them.

          • notisaidthepig

            Talking to each other and upvoting each other back and forth for hours? Crazy.

          • The_Fixer

            I know! The only people they are impressing is each other. And that’s not a club I would like to join.

          • Nancy

            crazy is as crazy does.

      • Nancy

        they are just doubling down…jesus.
        I get sick when I read these posts from them-just stop the lies and spin.

  • Edwin

    Good morning 17. My email finger slipped again

    I see you and Ricki are having a nice time at your blog tonight and that
    makes me happy. When life hands you lemons you make lemonade. You’re
    real little troopers. Good for you. If Ricki posts enough music you
    might be able to move the crown contest back a few days, say mid-August
    sometime. Wouldn’t that be nice!!

    I realize, in my last email I didn’t say who “we” is. It’s everyone who
    used to post at TBR, plus about a dozen others we all know from the
    past, and they all know about you and your stalking…… and of course 17.
    My my, but he has filled me in all about you two. I had no idea.
    Between him, Plum’s and all the stories pouring out from guests at the
    new place– we know everything. The rest of the gang has corroborated
    everything and Cathyx and I have compared stories too. 17 is fucking delighted. On cloud 9. We’ve all hitched our wagons to 17 because we like him– a lot. (None of us ever want to see either of you again.)

    Our new home is just hopping. I can barely keep up with all the new
    comments flooding in, And the camaraderie is wonderful. Just today I
    made some breakfast and when I sat back down there were 300 new comments
    posted. (I see you guys finally broke 200 comments after 2 days.
    That’s progress.)

    You could pop by to have a look, but I think you have been completely
    blocked out so you’ll have to rely on your spies to make reports. Rats,
    eh!!! Not quite as good as being there yourself, is it?

      You forgot to add that you can talk about Karoli as much as you want to here.

      • Edwin

        I have a feeling they might get more email …..(just a hunch) :~>

        • cathyx

          Oh, then maybe that’s included in one of those.

          • Edwin

            check it out– they are melting down live, right now– really nasty shit (And, they suck at it, but… )

          • cathyx

            I have already. I saw it before i got here, lol.

          • Nancy

            that’s just sad…

          • notisaidthepig

            yep. was that a jab at me that Neb made? Oink!

          • The_Fixer

            Could have been at any or all of us. Why should you be so special? πŸ™‚

          • notisaidthepig

            A pig is known!

          • The_Fixer

            Ah, that is true!

          • Nancy

            lol, morning Fix!
            he thinks everything is about him, oink!
            πŸ˜‰

          • notisaidthepig

            You mean, it isn’t? The horror.

          • The_Fixer

            Hi, Nancy and good morning. Ah, the pig is special, but we can’t let him know that otherwise we won’t be able to live with him πŸ™‚

          • Nancy

            I just mutter “bacon” and that seems to settle him down!

          • The_Fixer

            Ha!

          • Nancy

            πŸ˜‰

          • notisaidthepig

            (((happily feasts)))

          • Nancy
          • notisaidthepig
          • Nancy

            yup…loved these guys.

          • notisaidthepig

            Oink!

          • Nancy

            yep-you left an impact and the whole “blowing down a house” thing was about you too!

          • notisaidthepig

            Oh, I missed that one. Too early!

          • Edwin

            I know, but oddly I don’t feel sad. Does that mean I’m a psychopath?

          • Nancy

            no not at all. you are angry and letting the anger out.
            I think that’s very healthy.

          • Edwin

            I seem to excel at it and in the most fun ways πŸ™‚

          • The_Fixer

            Looks like they are bored and need something to do with themselves, so they posted a ton of music videos. Oh, how the useless have fallen…

          • Edwin

            I think Ricki was drinked again. I have a feeling that might be part of her problem. Boozehound.

        • 17

          Several years ago I had one of my puters set up to send an email to Megyn Kelly every morning automatically. I thought about doing that for TBR, but I don’t think that email addy will be around long enough for the bother.

          • Edwin

            They mentioned your name again last night at TBR.

          • 17

            I saw that. They still think I’m “nii”.

          • Edwin

            Yup– short for Nikon. It’s all about you. It always has been. In both my chatzies with them it was ultimately about you.

            Although now that their blog is dead it might be about me too: that evil Edwin that ruined our blog we put our necks out to build… yada yada yada (snore)

          • 17

            lol

    • notisaidthepig

      So naughty!

    • 17

      Where’s the profanity? Needs moar profanity.

      • Edwin

        I am all about the sweetness.

    • The_Fixer

      There’s something incredibly warped about someone who needs so many sock puppets.

      • Rich H

        Those are all one person?

        • 17

          Those are Ricki.

          • Rich H

            Amazing.

        • The_Fixer

          Yes, they are Ricki from The Banned Room.

      • Edwin

        I manage with only 9. :~>

    • Nancy

      you are racking me up.

      • Edwin

        I’m having great fun and where those two are concerned that’s all that fucking matters.

      • Edwin

        PS I also had a great tie trashing Karoli. Maybe I’m a bit twisted too. So be it. Ha ha ha.

    • Nancy

      when did you send that? no doubt you triggered more meltdowns.

      • Edwin

        In the middle of last night’s meltdown when they were calling us fleas and an infection which could cause them brain damage– because they really love us.

        • Nancy

          only when we behave Edwin. it’s a conditional love.

      • Edwin

        They have not responded to any of my emails!!!

        • Nancy

          well, that’s rude!
          no manners at all.

          • Edwin

            Further proof it’s all about them. Hmppf!

          • 17

            They’ve never responded to any of my emails. Never.

          • Edwin

            And I’m sure yours are charming too. πŸ™‚

          • 17

            Mine always direct them to The Woodshed.

          • Edwin

            Same with C&L/Amato (the putz)

  • 17

    ..

  • towerofbabel

    Anyone know who “Stupidgit” is?

    • 17

      I know he’s a regular from C&L and TBR. Don’t know how to get ahold of him tho.

      • Nancy

        not sure either 17, morning!

        • 17

          Good morning, Nancy. I got him.

          • Nancy

            good catch!

      • towerofbabel

        He’s open on Disqus.

        • 17

          Wish you could get us “Taleisin”.

    • notisaidthepig

      He’s the filmmaker who used to post at C&L. Very cool guy. Don’t know how to get in touch with him though. If only I could remember his real name and the name of that movie he directed. Damn. My memory sucks but surely someone here remembers!

      • 17

        That’s right!. The film guy! Good morning Noti. πŸ˜‰

        • notisaidthepig

          Good morning. Was just peeking in at TBR. Taleisin just posted but I’m banned and can’t get word to him. Oink!

          • 17

            No, but Git’s profile is open I just noticed.

          • notisaidthepig

            Can we send him a message that way? I’m not too familiar with the intricacies of Disqus.

          • 17

            Just did.

          • notisaidthepig

            Thank you! What can’t we do! Oink!

          • Edwin

            Did you see those two making fun of piggies and Oink!?

          • notisaidthepig

            Yes, I did. And you know what I say? Oink!

      • towerofbabel

        I can reach him. Should I invite him?

        • 17

          Please do. I did earlier, but don’t know if he’s seen it yet.

        • Edwin

          YES. Stupidgit rocks and is one of my good buddies!!!!

        • notisaidthepig

          Yes, please.

      • Edwin

        Geoff Ryan, Fray

        • notisaidthepig

          I knew you would know!

    • smkngman3

      He either produced od directed the movie “FRAY”.

  • notisaidthepig

    Taleisin just posted at TBR!

    • Nancy

      I had a not to him on FB. I said we were at a new place. he hadn’t been on for a few days but I noticed this morning he was back. there was no reply to my message, we’ll see.
      morning!

      • notisaidthepig

        Good morning. I couldn’t help myself and took a peek at TBR just as he was posting.

        • Nancy

          pigs are very curious animals!

          • notisaidthepig

            It’s Edwin’s fault again! His comments below piqued my interest.

          • Nancy

            I just refreshed and saw that!

          • Edwin

            I go back everywhere. I’d rather know than not know. They got pretty ugly last night. (You know who The Shadow is, right?)

          • 17

            That was tame and pathetic, I thought.

          • Edwin

            tame or lame?

            It was pretty sad to watch. Not even clever stuff, boring stuff. Like the sound of a drunk at the end of the bar who hates everyone, but is dull as mud and just bores the fuck out of everyone.

          • 17

            Believe me, I’ve seen her drunk and raving. That shit last night was tame.

          • Edwin

            Yes, it was not full meltdown mode. I can imagine that.

          • 17

            There’s a new one brewing. Cathy and I knew the one the other night was coming, we just didn’t expect it so soon.

          • Edwin

            Maybe she’ll throw some furniture.

          • Edwin

            Oopsie

            Hey, if you guys announced a crown contest for 300 it might push your numbers up. I mean you have to admit it would be a teensy bit embarrassing if you don’t crack 300 comments after three days. I saw you hit 295, but it went backwards to 294. And now it’s just frozen there, not moving. What’s up with that?

            You guys have worked so hard to get your blog up. You really put your
            necks out, didn’t you? I’d hate to see it all come crashing down.

            If you need any more helpful tips to save your blog, I am full of them. We could re-hab this thing if you just listen to ME. Not sure you’ll like them, but I got ’em. Oooh, baby, I got ’em.

            OK, one freebie, just because I am a super-nice-nice guy, and β™₯- I wuv-wuv- wuvs you -β™₯.

            —>>Stop behaving like crazed-psycho-bitch-douchebag-fucking-cunts who stalk their prey around the net. No one likes that, m’kay?

          • 17

            Ouch!

          • notisaidthepig

            I admire that about you: that you can go back. Knowledge is power after all. Yes, I know who The Shadow is. Love it!

          • Edwin

            Don’t be making The Shadow angry!!

  • Nancy
    • notisaidthepig

      It is morning. And I did laugh. Oink!

      tell her “hey” from me!

      • notisaidthepig

        I got an email this morning saying I can pick up my ticket starting at 11am; the event starts at 2pm. I guess I’ll go early to try to get a better seat though seating doesn’t start until 1pm. Lots of security reminders.

        • Nancy

          so exciting! you are there while history is being made!

          • notisaidthepig

            I’m very curious to see how it all pans out. Fun times for sure.

          • Nevin

            It sure as hell has got to be better than listening to Hillary.

          • notisaidthepig

            Wouldn’t it be great if there was a Clinton meltdown? He seems to have them fairly often these days. I’m not allowed to bring much into the room but my small camera will be with me. I’ll try to get some pictures and video and will post here.

  • notisaidthepig

    Here’s another poll. This one is different, right? Yesterday’s was from NBC. This one is from ABC. Vote if you care at:

    http://abcnewsgo.co/2016/08/abc-live-poll-who-are-you-voting-for/

    Here are the results so far. See where $hillary is:

    • The_Fixer

      Of course, I gave Jill one more vote. The Hil Hate is strong there, 70% voting for Drumpfo der Clown. Wow!

      • notisaidthepig

        I know it’s unscientific but I still get comfort from $hillary being in the gutter, only ahead of Darrell Castle.

        • Nevin

          I don’t even know who Darrell Castle is. Morning handsome.

          • notisaidthepig

            Good morning, Nevin. I have no idea who Castle is either. Too bad he’s not ahead of $hillary as well though.

            Saw your comment over at the other place when you returned (as it were). Loved it.

            P.S. Thanks for the compliment. I hope Jill notices this afternoon. If I catch her eye, there’s hope I might get a selfie with her. Fingers crossed!

          • Nevin

            Neb has pissed off this little Taurus. I hate to say it, but I am out for revenge for all the lies he told me.

          • notisaidthepig

            Sorry about that, Nevin. I’m feeling betrayed as well and I didn’t know them as well or for as long as you. (((hugs)))

          • Edwin

            They can’t seem to stop themselves. If you need a partner in crime I might have some spare time. No one like a C # Nt say that word

          • Nevin

            I’m waiting for someone to email me back. I’m trying to figure out how he has changed so much or maybe he was always like this and just hid it.

          • Edwin

            Obviously he has always been like that.

            You can’t blame yourself. Often sociopaths and psychopaths are charming and anyone can easily be duped by them. Neb is just a crud who lied to you all this time. Now that you’re onto him he’s abusive, just like Ricki. Two twisted-sick-douchebag fucks.

          • Nevin

            Thanks Edwin.

          • Edwin

            They were (disarmingly) sweet as pie to all of us. Now they are extremely abusive to all of us. You were not a friend so much as you were someone to be used. Seen it before. We don’t find out till the shit hits the fan.

            Sad. Sorry.

        • The_Fixer

          I get that same comfort. It’s kind of like a nice, warm blanket on a cold winter night, or eating macaroni and cheese.

          • notisaidthepig

            Yep.

    • SpiffyTheValiant

      I’m disturbed Trump has 70% in that poll…

      • The_Fixer

        Good Morning, My Queen! I think it’s more likely that there are a bunch of zealots voting repeatedly, or perhaps joke votes. Can’t take online polls too seriously.

        • SpiffyTheValiant

          Lol if we can vote repeatedly, game on bitches.

    • LOL. Same broken WordPress template and similar fake URL name: “abcnewsgo.co.” ABC’s real url is “abcnews.go.com”

      Probably the same data-scraping, click-bat company as before, given how similar the broken WordPress template is. Gotta beware the con-men at election time. πŸ™

  • notisaidthepig
    • SpiffyTheValiant

      *coughs* bullshit, clooney.

      • notisaidthepig

        My Queen! (((bows)))

        • SpiffyTheValiant

          BTW I think Castle was some Republican who just declared, mostly because Trump sucked. But he might have been a Conservative Independent. Supposedly he’s well respected and a Mormon, if I’m not getting him confused with someone else.

          • notisaidthepig

            Oh, you may be right. Your words are jogging my memory a bit….

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            I guess I should google him, but am pretty sure.

            http://castle2016.com/darrell-castle/ yeah i was right, religious and military. I guess he’s from the Constitution Party. *my guess is that’s probably the right’s version of the Green Party and never gets much press.*

          • Nevin

            For a second I read Mormon as moron.

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            I’m not touching that one lol

          • The_Fixer

            I’ve been known to do that, too πŸ™‚

    • Nancy

      how is it ok to blatantly lie like this? either he’s that stupid or he’s cool with lying.

      • Nevin

        He is a stupid liar.

    • Nevin

      That piece of shit said Bernie was right just before his ego driven money party for Hillary. I’m in a bad mood today and Hillary apologist need to stay out of my way.

    • Edwin

      Wow. Guess I’ll be crushing all his DVDs under something.

        this one is about dogs but it links you too his others on youtube.

            lmao…morning sunshine!!!

          • Nevin

            I’ll be OK after I walk the dog.
