Book of the Week: Pickman’s Gallery.

Pickman’s Gallery is a collection of Cthulhu Mythos stories centered around the HP Lovecraft short story ‘Pickman’s Model.’  Just came out, in fact.  It features a story by Moe Lane.

:steady look:


Aw, I’m just funning you. Still, I hear that a Kindle version is coming out next week.


…I dunno.

This posting stuff on RedState and then just linking to it here feels a little weird. Not always, but sometimes.  I may be just not liking change, but… again, I dunno.

This was the post that I was going to link to, by the way.


Quote of the Day, The Obamacare of Obamacare is Obamacare edition.

You’re right, the title doesn’t make sense.  That’s the point. Jonah Goldberg:

Consider the fact that Obamacare is now simply untethered from law or policy. This week the administration announced that you can get a hardship waiver from Obamacare if your hardship is . . .wait for it . . . Obamacare. This is like getting out of doing push-ups during basic training if you can prove that doing push-ups would be difficult for you, defeating the point of doing push-ups in the first place. The White House is quite simply making it all up as they go along. You can’t really point to a thing that is Obamacare because doing so would be like pointing at the blob in a lava lamp and saying “that looks like Michael Caine eating a badger.” Maybe it looks like that right now. Give it a second. When you criticize Obamacare the response from its defenders gets meta really quickly.

Sure, the defenders will admit, more people have lost their insurance than gained insurance because of Obamacare. Yes, yes, the website is the screen-doored submarine of websites. Sure, the president is simply disregarding countless laws and regulations he and his supporters once considered so sacred only racists, psychopaths, and Koch brothers could oppose. But good God, “DON’T YOU WANT PEOPLE TO HAVE INSURANCE, YOU HEARTLESS BASTARD!?!?!”

Jonah goes on from there.  Like he does.


I’ll say this for Twitter…

…it makes it way easier to just put up a story that you just want people to see, without having to feel obligated to natter on and on and on about it.  Frex, this story; I could come up with five hundred words that could be summed up as ‘Interesting’… or I could just Tweet it instead.

I know that this is a kind of a meta post.  Sorry; everybody’s home because everything’s closed.


As you can see, there’s a Reciprocal bloglist in place now.

Which is probably not going to be automatic, alas: I’m trying to keep my sidebars under control.

And, in other news: George Bush sings U2.

Old, but refreshing, in its way.
