Why you cannot buy Bob Ross paintings.

A question that you did not think to ask prior to this moment, I reckon.

Also: there’s so much damn subtext going on behind the scenes, here. You can visibly see Bob Ross’s friend and her husband try to figure out how much information is too much information in this mini-documentary, and whether it’s anybody’s damned business anyway. I’m inclined to say that it’s not, but that’s hardly a surprise.

Anyway: now I kind of want a Bob Ross painting. Which I’m not going to be able to get. Heck, they apparently don’t even make prints.

Please do not flash mob Area 51.

I know, I know: virtually nobody talking about flash mobbing Area 51 are actually going to do anything at all that resembles flash mobbing Area 51. ‘Tis silly-season time, so out come the silly stories and we all have a good chuckle. It’s just that the silly-season concept, like virtually everything else in our culture that was designed to be funny, doesn’t really take social media into account.

Tweet of the Day, …Yeah. Yeah, Just Go With That. Nobody’s Ever Gonna See The Actual Critter Anyway edition.

The whole thread is funny, but this is my favorite.

Because sometimes, the artist is right.

Looks like its going to be Hurricane Barry that hits Louisiana.

Currently a tropical storm, but they’re saying Barry will likely be a Category Hurricane 1 by Saturday when it makes landfall. My usual request for any of my readers (and everybody else) in the area; get out of the area. Your lives are worth more than any number of unnecessary risks.

Georgia Woman orders Moana themed cake, gets… you know where this is going, right?

Oh, like, wow, man. That’s messed up. But funny!

Kensli Davis’ mom had asked the Atlanta, Georgia, bakery staff to decorate it with images of the Hawaiian princess — but they misheard.

She ended up blowing out the candles on a cake emblazoned with a giant cannabis leaf, green icing and a My Little Pony-style character with red eyes and a puff of smoke from its snout.

RIP, Ross Perot.

Ross Perot was… unconventional. But I liked him, personally. My condolences and prayers for his family and loved ones.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I have been very angry, this week.

It’s the Jeffrey Epstein thing, of course. Putting to the side anything partisan or political, because I don’t do that here anymore: …this guy should never have gotten a plea deal. And I know that it’s absolutely vital that horrible people get fair trials and competent counsel, too* — but I’m damned if I can see how Epstein can be innocent. It’d take a conspiracy that you’d normally only see in a technothriller, and even then people would roll their eyes. And none of this is making me think kindly thoughts.

Bear steals, crashes police car with its butt.

I got nothing, folks. It’s too soon to go for another ‘trouble bruin’ pun on this site, honestly. Besides, I don’t want to get teddyous here.

I’m back, and, hey, in soccer news: we won another Women’s World Cup.

The USA — as is only proper — has won the Women’s World Cup for the second time in a row… how often do they do this soccer thing again? Every four years? Well, that seems dumb. They should have it every year. They might get more people in the USA watching it if they did.
