Cheap Excuses

Janine Turner:
As a satellite barrels towards Earth this week with impending doom, the references to Northern Exposure are many.
No they aren't, but here's a picture of Janine Turner just because.



What? Oh yes: write more blog filler.
I am now an activist and I have never felt more urgent sense of passion and purpose. As the satellite is making a beeline for Earth it reminds me a bit of our situation in America. We feel the impending doom: faltering economy, strangling debt, high unemployment, disenchantment, terrorism beckoning on our doorstep and a president who has blinders on and only sees 2012. Satellite? What Satellite? Ignorance is not bliss.
For the standard bananas Big Hollywood writer, this is not bad stuff, even if only marginally less kooky than every Republican candidate other than Mitt Romney, and yes things suck, without the whole terrorism panic angle. And so it goes with the rest of the piece.

On the other hand Michael Moriarty has started A Series:
With the Shostakovich Fifth Symphony as our emotional guide, we can see with increasing depth the massively homicidal inevitabilities in an increasingly centralized governing system with worldwide ambitions. A creation such as the Progressive New World Order and its increasingly empowered, increasingly selective oligarchy.

What will be the fanfare to the Progressive and Increasingly Tyrannical New World Order?

The very riots predicted by Progressive Mayor, Michael Bloomberg of New York and actually promoted by the deliberately failing prescriptions of Bloomberg’s fellow provocateur, President Obama.

What is the “fundamental transformation of the United States”?

Martial law.

With that as the objective of the entire Obama Nation, everything Obama has done makes perfect sense.
Woo woo!

Marshall Law? Wasn't he Judge Dredd's partner?

P.S. Could these clowns get any more hysterical over Bush's 3rd term?

Marshall Law was a damned fine graphic novel for its day, sir.

terrorism beckoning on our doorstep

Beckoning? I can only assume that it is collecting for charity. Anyway it is probably safer to have terrorism on our doorstep than driving around the neighbourhood in the van with the blacked-out windows. At least this way we know where it is.

Substance McGravitas said...

It's ten o'clock: do you know where your terrorism is?

Smut Clyde said...

Coming to bed yet?
Just a minute, I'll put the terrorism out for the night.

Substance McGravitas said...

Then your terrorism wakes up all the other terrorisms in the neighbourhood. THANK YOU.

Huntsman's out already?

Shostakovich: I lurve Shostakovich, but yeah, he was crazy enough to serve as a guide for Moriarty.

Beckoning?


It rings the doorbell right after it's set the poop-bag on fire. Terrorism is SUCH an asshole.

tigris said...

Grammar. Blarg.

Substance McGravitas said...

I think Huntsman may actually believe something, while Mitt clearly doesn't, and Huntsman is the standard nightmare fiscal conservative that Mitt is not. Today anyway.

Smut Clyde said...

I heard that the barreling satellite had arrived but the impending doom got lost somewhere and hasn't turned up (or perhaps it has but no-one noticed because, you know, Canada). So Janine Turner can relax now and lose her urgent sense of passion and purpose.

Many of Maggie’s boyfriends died untimely deaths and this was a blow, in itself, to Maggie.

...yeah, I hate it when that happens

J.T. can't quite close her lips enough to keep her fangs hidden.

It was tough to win in a drama acting category because I was always “funny,” through the tears, (tears that I could slip in), while other “drama” actresses were having genuine meltdowns. Throughout the years, as I watched the clips of my fellow nominees sobbing, I knew I’d never win.

she knows from funny [this is too easy!]

The satellite the size of a bus is believed to have gone down in the Pacific. It will soon be floating ashore w/ the next wave of feet in sneakers. Eyes peeled!

Another Kiwi said...

Shostakovich!
Terrorists on the doorstep!(You know who else had bad news on the doorstep??) Don Maclean, that's who.
Bus load of faith a-crashin' and a- burnin'!
Sakes alive it's a fondue of fecal material

She's gorgeous in that photo, but looks disturbingly like she is angling for the Callista Gingrich look.

thudner, I believe they are less frothed up over the actual policies than they are about the Team Name of the occupant; and of course, his less-than-WASPY persuasion.

Smut Clyde said...

You know who else had bad news on the doorstep?

ME! ME TOO!
No, wait, that's not bad news, that's the deliquescent corpse of Asenath Waite, containing the spirit of Edward Derby who somehow kept it moving by his sheer will-power. Sorry, my mistake.

Big Bad Bald Bastard said...

It's amazing that the whole "New World Order" schtick has, um, progressed from far-fringe kookery to mainstream conservatism. Damn, this is more "Alex Jones" than "Rupert Murdoch".

mikey said...

Maybe they should (politely) ask the ISI just precisely who is driving the bus (sized satellite)....

vacuumslayer said...

She's gorgeous in that photo

If by "gorgeous" you mean botoxed, siliconed, airbrushed and bleached so as to resemble a statue of one of the stars of "Houseswives of New Jersey," then, yes, I agree with you. She is gorgeous.

When she was on that show in the 90's she was QUITE pretty...but when you're dealing with a Hollywood actress, it's hard to know how much of that is artifice.


Also, "terrorism beckoning?" Erm, what? Did it do so coyly? Sexily? With a half-smile? Oy.

Smut Clyde said...

the whole "New World Order" schtick [...] mainstream conservatism

I have managed to avoid visiting Breitbart's Big Hollywood so I will defer to other people's verdicts as to how far it can be described as 'mainstream'.

Terrorism is the scary girl twins!

"Hi there, big boy, got some asymmetricality for me?"

Maybe terrorism beckons in song.

Wingnuts!

Come out to play-ayyyy...

IS there another definition? This is America!

Don McLean: nice guy, heart in the right place, had the ASCAP black box slot machine turn up five cherries for him, can't find enough sacks to gather up all the coin.

Shostakovich: always hungry, scared, paranoid (there were people after him), kept a small case with necessaries packed 24/7 for the gulag.

Don McLean, body of work: Starry Starry Night, the other one, you know

Shostakovich: Lady MacBeth of the Mtemske District, and some other stuff

Correlation: very low

With the Shostakovich Fifth Symphony as our emotional guide

I rate for his Cello concerto also too.

I do not rate for emotional guides. One moment they are all "We must stop next bend, Bwana, for this is Gwede territory. We portage to the next river." Then you get to the fork in the path and they break down in tears because their mothers didn't really love them and their fathers didn't understand their artistic temperament. It is not what you want when the pygmies are firing poison-tip arrows.

guitarist manqué said...

Oh bwana, the drums.

As I tried to say... Didn't Janine have a Christian yoga DVD out not too long ago, so you know, Christians could safely stretch and tone without any of the evil side effects of sacrilegious yoga?

Jennifer said...

Ah, yes…
