The ‘Nine Lives’ trailer, and I apologize in advance.

(H/T: Multiplex) Who thought that this was a good idea?

Does Christopher Walken need money, or something? – Because if a hat was being passed around I would have tossed in twenty bucks.  Fifty, if I got the OK to use house money. This looks… this looks like a movie that got made because somebody lost a bet.

Good night.

It would probably be best if I called it an evening.

My RedState post on PA AG Kathleen Kane.

Found here. Short version… wow. The woman’s been indicted and disbarred, and she’s STILL leading the pack in the Democratic primary for PA Attorney General.  God loves me… well, He loves everybody, of course.  But this is awesome.

Marco Rubio and the Football of Vengeance.

I was only going to chuckle about this Marco Rubio ad, but then I got to 1:27 and then I realized that I’d have to post it.  I seriously have to. It’s, like, a geek obligation and everything.

PS: Dr. Ben Carson is a remarkably nice man. I mean, it’s like there’s no malice or spite in him at all. What the hell is he doing in American politics?

This is a fun game that my readers can play.

The question was:

And these were my two immediate answers.

I’m open to other opinions on this one, though.  The Zevon one in particular may simply be hardcore bittersweet nostalgia on my part; Warren Zevon was one of the defining voices of my early adulthood. I still miss him.

A featurette on ‘ 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi .’

For those who don’t remember, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is that Michael Bay flick about Benghazi that is even now spawning a million pre-emptive negative reviews among the Usual Suspects. I suspect that the Left may be freaking out unduly over this, out of sheer funk and secret shame over what happened. The movie will probably not be the nightmare excursion into retributive pain that they dread.  But, man: it’s fun to watch the Left squirm over this.

Movie out in two weeks.

…I can never go back to NYC now.

It has become an unholy place, given over to abominations.

Tucker Christon fondly remembers the bags of steaming-hot bagels his family shared growing up in Fresh Meadows, Queens. But when he moved back to the city 10 years ago, a nefarious trend had overtaken bagel eaters in New York: People were scooping out their bagels, as a way to cut down on carbs.

My assumption is that you haven’t seen Star Wars by Friday…

…you probably won’t be doing so any time soon. Up to that point, I’m not going to discuss anything that might be a spoiler, period; after that, I plan to talk about the film, with the usual [SPOILERS] tag of course. I figure that I can do that and remain essentially honorable.

Moe Lane

PS: I’ve had to unfriend one person on Facebook who just flat-out threw out the spoilers for the movie. Fortunately, I saw that AFTER I watched the movie, so I was disgusted rather than furious.  There’s being edgy, and then there’s just being a sykes. Don’t be a sykes.

Quote of the Day, A Reminder That Global Warming HYSTERIA Is A Minority Opinion edition.

You can believe what you like about global warming, of course.  It’s a free country. Just remember that, if you think that we should immediately shut down hydrocarbon use in response, you’re actually kind of lonely out there.  From Gallup, in April:

Nearly six in 10 liberal Democrats (58%) assess global warming as a serious threat to their way of life, a judgment not reflected in any of the alternate political identities. Less than half of conservative/moderate Democrats (46%), 35% of independents, 30% of moderate/liberal Republicans and 12% of conservative Republicans agree with this viewpoint.

I find this highly amusing, honestly.  The anti-tech types have spent so much time trying to turn what has been a fairly obvious warming/cooling cycle that stretches back through recorded history into some sort of one-off situation that they completely forgot to convince anybody why we should care. And the problem with predicting apocalypses?  People tend to notice when the predictions don’t come true. And they respond accordingly.

But, hey, don’t let me stop the Democrats from trying to run on that program. Maybe it’ll work out for them this go-round.  First time for everything, am I right?
