Uma Thurmond's Feet

Speaking of Marvel, fan favorite Brie Larson appeared on the podcast "How Did This Get Made?" only to talk about another terrible superhero movie, "Supergirl."

The show's three co-hosts are at times mediocre, misinformed, and mildly amusing, and not above being bribed (they did an episode on the latest "Fast and Furious" movie, which needed to be accompanied by one of John Waters' Smell-O-Vision cards), and the thought of sitting down and listening to this attempt at rehabilitation reminds me of more profitable things to do with my time, like drilling holes in my forehead.


Apparently "artisanal rockets" are a thing.

But are they also curated?

I listened to a few of those but it got grating after a bit.

There's also No Such Thing As A Bad Movie which is less annoying.


More white supremacy.


More white supremacy.

In the article, it says no one knows what prompted the beatdown, but if the child trying to help in the video is the white girl's kid, I'm gonna guess the kid's dad is the reason.

Makes sense. Black female hatred of white women who date/marry black men is no secret.


Yes, white supremacy makes any non-white person committing racist assault an Honorary White Person during the assault.

I guess once the [assault, rape, murder, robbery, et al] is over, the BIPOC immediately returns to Oppressed Victim status.

Are they really Honorary White People, or would it be more fair to call them puppets with no self-control or agency who are driven to commit violence by their White Overlords/Puppet Masters?

Because, y'know, that's so much better...

The more problems they made for themselves, the more they were rewarded [by the welfare state]. We had a peculiar demoralisation… I mean, an actual removal of morality from all human consideration.

Jordan Peterson interviews Theodore Dalrymple.

I’ve only had time to watch a short clip, but I imagine there’ll be other bits of interest.

I think we’ll give that one a post of its own.

Comments that-a-way.

I rely on people here to keep me informed about these things

A rocket body and motor are quite easy to make with supplies from any hardware store. The guidance system is the tricky part but if you don't care about accuracy and are just going for generalized mayhem you're good to go.

The hardware store supplies only get you as far as "handyman special" rockets. To truly reach "artisanal" status, you need some Art Deco inspired fins and a really nice hand-rubbed finish.

Happy Rocket?


Happy Rocket?

No, you sexual deviants! ARTISANAL...hand crafted. The old fashioned way. Rockets made with love...perverts...

The brutal irony of the "Dr Strange" incident - it was at the insistence of the never-to-criticised ChiComs.

That would be the rocket that Doctor Jerkoff built.
