It’s Saturday. We got through Friday 13th. It’s time for silliness. (Click here.)
Mr. Dylan comes walking through the park in his new boots. Uncle Bill decides he doesn’t want to see Mr. Dylan and uses an ancient Hopi invocation to become invisible.
And talking of Mr. Dylan, our pal Michael Simmons has posted an advance heads up on a new album on the Mojo blog. Not as exciting as it might have been in 1966, but still significant that Old Bob can keep popping out tunes. (Click here.)
Our pal Lost Jimmy sent this over with the question “are these for real.” To which I can but reply, “I fear they are.”
“Genki Wear, known for its licensed science fiction jewelry and perfumes, has produced what might be the most unusual Star Trek product ever: Star Trek colognes and perfume based on the original 1960s television show. In our latest look at Trek’s big Spring Collection, TrekMovie has all the exclusive first details and images on this unique addition to the pantheon of Star Trek merchandise.”
Sadly there’s no image for this one
"Pon FarrThe most risqué titled of the new Star Trek fragrances is "Ponn Farr" which is a perfume designed to "drive him wild." It should only be used once every seven years (okay, that isn’t true). Named for the Vulcan mating ritual first introduced in the episode "Amok Time," this perfume is one of the newly designed products meant to appeal to female fans. More details and an image on Ponn Farr will be available soon." (Click here for more of this nonsense.)
Will someone please beam me out of here?
“Obviously welfare is for the wealthy. We know how to handle money so much better than you six-pack peons.”
Republicans are making ugly noise all over my TV, plainly demonstrating with their discredited, free-market, Obama-must-fail, idiot babble they have absolutely no agenda except loudly and doggedly to protect the wealth of the wealthy and corporate profits. I have heard the argument “that tax cuts must be given to the rich because they are the ones who create the jobs” until my stomach turns. The rich have a Bush-era history of creating jobs. In China, India, Mexico, and the Philippines, but back in USA? Forget about it.
The secret word is Absurdity
I hardly believe this, but it was in Variety…
“Elton John's Rocket Pictures hopes to make the first Jane Austen adaptation to which men will drag their girlfriends. Will Clark is set to direct "Pride and Predator," which veers from the traditional period costume drama when an alien crash lands and begins to butcher the mannered protags, who suddenly have more than marriage and inheritance to worry about.” (Click here for more.)
