The Hummer Aesthetic

Big Hollywood calls out stupid celebrities for being stupid environmentalists. For instance, some stupid celebrities are trying to use less water. Stupid celebrities.

CALIFORNIA HAS ALL THE WATER IT NEEDS.

The mighty LA River:

If California needs moor worter it WILL TAKE IT FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE, same as in the past.

Yeah, but then Jack Nicholson's nose gets all ripped up.

A fine comment:

Water is an inexhaustable commodity; oceans are full of the stuff. If only we had the technology to process and deliver it. Oh, wait a minute, we do have the technology. So, why all the fuss about water?

Today was a nice day for taking pictures.

Apparently, there is someone named Hummer running for Judge here in Columbus.

A Hummer Judge?

That's a LOT of pressure...

-”I take a three-minute shower,” [Jennifer Aniston] told Elizabeth Rogers and Thomas Kostigen, authors of The Green Book. She even brushes her teeth while she’s in there.

Three-minute showers--just like Hugo Chávez! But does she pee in the shower?

Substance McGravitas said...

That is a very important question.

My money is on Issey Miyake as the first major fashion designer to parade a set of models down the catwalk wearing stillsuits.

Thought shaving & tooth brushing in the shower were a waste of water. That's why I do both.

The image represents a good day for our local tame river. Which is why we are coming for everyone's water. Soon Anti-Podeans, Hawai'ians & the like will be able to walk (or hitch-hike) right across the ex-Pacific.

Substance McGravitas said...

I thought I'd choose the raging torrent over the trickle to emphasize California's self-reliance.

we're not giving any of the Great Lakes to you Left Coasters.

That's why we've got a Zombie Corpse to guard it.

LA River???

Really?

You DO know those SoCal wannabe californian poseurs have Hetch Hetchy, right? I mean, we send them fresh water, they send us Hippety Hop music and Mel fucking Gibson.

Ahh well, you know what?

When things get REAL bad, we'll just start pumping Tahoe...

Am I imagining things or was that river the scene of a car chase sequence in Ring of Fire II: Blood and Steel?

Isn't there another reservoir further north they take from too?

Dunno about the particular film, but there's been a lot of driving there.

Another Kiwi said...

Seriously, come and et the water out of my back yard. Bring a big plastic bag. Fuck it all. We could grow rice out there.

Substance McGravitas said...

If your water is thick enough for etting I'm not sure how many takers there will be.

herr doktor bimler said...

Just going through the motions.

M. Bouffant said...

Many, many, many a movie since Them (at least). Also telebision.

Haven't they blown up Hetch Hetchy yet? Or was that all talk?

And we grab a large part of the Colorado River for our celebrity swimming pools.

Ha!

herr doktor bimler said...

Looks familiar from Repo Man too.

I caught that once. Had to take these pills that turned my eyeballs blue.

Another Kiwi said...

Is the Hetchy Hetchy like the Hippy Hippy Shake, 'cause I can do that one.

mikey said...

At least they didn't make you Retch Retchy

herr doktor bimler said...

Speaking of Repo Man, I just saw in the paper about the Californian Pageant people suing Prejean for the return of their breast implants.

Substance McGravitas said...

Hard to decide who should lose in that case, but it's comforting to think that one party will.

It's a sad commentary on the state of the golden state's economy when they see a financial windfall in a pair of slightly used tits...

It's hard to believe we aren't going the way of the British Empire when you read stuff like that.

And of course, no one ever went Bork in Afghanistan.
