Don't Give Fox Another Chance

It appears Fox TV wants the rights to The X-Men.
Comic book super heroes are science fiction. Science fiction requires $$$ to produce. It takes time to develop the characters & universe. It would take less if you just used what was already developed but Hollywood knows better. But Fox wants instant results and has killed science fiction shows too many times.
Let somebody else develop comic book TV. Fox isn't mature enough & will just ruin franchises for other companies to produce. The X-Files came along when Fox had nothing. It would never have lasted a season nowadays.
Fox, step away from the art boards...

The Indignation

While Blogging Isn't Cool will no doubt be snubbed by the pretenders at City Bleat (again), their petty jealousies only make me laugh.
Now, Cincy Magazine has snubbed Quimbob in their 2015 Power 100. 'The Tristate's most influential CEO's, politicians and civic leaders', indeed. Most of those guys tremble at the mention of my name. They bow before me in my top secret hidden lair floating invisibly over the Queen City ass they seek my advice and acceptance.
These silly muckraking publications know no honor nor do they show even basic respect.
Their time will come...

Hollow Word Theory

Cincinnati mayor John Cranley quotes ex-Cincinnati councilman, Paul Booth as saying, "We will be judged not by what we say but by what we do"
So does this mean you can say whatever because you won't be judged or that you will be judged for breaking your promises ?
Maybe words are just hot air said for one's convenience. Maybe they represent what you do. What is significant about Booth's words? Apparently nothing.

OK grade Z horror movie makers, here's my idea. You can have it.
As people are opting more and more for cremation, the severity of a zombie apocalypse is quickly deteriorating to a 'zombie problem'.
But what if the ashes / cremains came back & blew in the wind like in dustbowl times and people couldn't keep them out of their homes, off their bodies & out of their noses, mouths and lungs. The powdered zed could wreak havoc on the warmie flesh bags from within.
And since people are so fond of dumping people's cremains into rivers, lakes & oceans, they could come in in liquified states via beaches, river beds and even through the plumbing.
When you combine this double whammy ~ boy fucking howdy ~ ZOMNADO !!.
you're welcome

Hey, Big Brother, GET OFF YOUR ASS !

So, OK, my only problem with this is - if the heat has all this kit, how come we have to put up with crack head burglars, crack head hookers, drunk drivers & other auto criminals?
I get why they are not going to go after the drug dealers since they want us stupid and placid but isn't that what the daggone chem-trails are for? I guess maybe that's part of the hookers role, too, tho, so...
dang, the Illuminati reptilian insectoids move in mysterious ways.

A Look Back From 2750

I can only imagine the political debate in Cincinnati if it wanted to float somewhere else...

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Steve Chabot - Nosferatu

In Steve Chabot's latest blogpost, he turns to (sophomoric) humor to debate with himself whether the GOP is dead or not.
While the GOP can field candidates and, when lazy ass Democrats don't bother to vote, win elections, he's not really getting to the real point of the party's life or death.
Apparently, Steve Chabot doesn't know the difference between a zombie & a real live person. But the old GOP was eviscerated by right wing southern Democrats decades ago who pounced on the floundering party like maggots on rotting flesh.
Now, as the Republican Party shambles on, dropping bits & pieces of rotting flesh along the way, it's clear that all that animates it's rotting husk is some maleficent spiritual parasite and not the vibrant soul that once gave it birth. Chabot, of course doesn't grasp this and hears the garbled mutterings of the party as anything he wants. His relation to the party is like Norman Bates' relation to his mother - tormented but always wanting to please - trapped in time.

Who Wants Pot in Ohio ?

In a recent announcement Responsible Ohio said it was launching a ballot initiative to provide for legal marijuana production & sales. Our intrepid research intern immediately pounced on the website for Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis and found some differences in the plan. No surprise because it was a different group with nearly the same name. Indeed, on their FAQs page, there's a message
Whoever is proposing the 10 growers plan is not us, we are not affiliated with them or even know who they are at this point, other than the fact that they are apparently calling themselves Responsible Ohio. Since we are the Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis, it is extremely suspicious that they have chosen such a similar name.
Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis allows for home growers, a lower tax rate, unlimited licensed commercial growers & amnesty for convicted pot people. Responsible Ohio provides for none of that & limits production to 10 operators.
Responsible Ohio wants to be on the ballot in 2015. Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis is shooting for 2016. The 2016 election sounds more likely to succeed as 2015 will likely have a majority of liberty hating Republicans voting.
I like the Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis plan a lot better but looking at their sites, Responsible Ohio appears to have the $$ advantage & choosing a similar name as the older organization can only muddy the waters. Indeed, our mistaken intern has been reassigned to stable duty, milking the goats.
Personal liberty, new tax revenue, de-criminalizing victimless activity are all good reasons to pursue either initiative. Personally I'd go with a mish mash of the two but I gotta admit, Responsible Ohio looks kinda shady.

Alien Demons ?

here ya go - is demonizing aliens specist? Would shooting down flying saucers be a hate crime? Who knows what kind of laws the Supreme Court will pass due the alien mind control beams that consume them as well as FEMA.
Have you checked your pastor's blood? His DNA?

ya know, if you're only going downtown in Cincinnati, you can get off at Mitchell Avenue / St Bernard & take Spring Grove. You even get your own lane when you merge onto Mitchell.

We Can Save Our Malls

While watching the magnificent Mutant Girls Squad, I saw a possible way to our dying malls.
Human Sacrifice
No, not some weeping virgin clerk from Footlocker - a champion of the forces that have brought our once proud malls to their knees.
I propose we kidnap champions of the counterculture and have them engage in mortal combat with our valiant mall security forces. Champions of socialism, champions of urbanism, champions of small business, champions of ecommerce fighting to the death in our mall concourses. Once vanquished, our customers, clerks and maintenance personnel can gather and ritually feast on the champion. But not before he is skinned so he can be taxidermiated and put on display in a sacred spot in the mall, like the food court.
This will reinvigorate the shoppers and bring them back to the malls where they can bask in the pinball machine like environment, the bad service, and the mass produced merchandise that hails from exotic third world countries, made with love by barefoot little children.
This can work, brothers and sisters. This will be our destiny.

I'm Blaming the Messenger

Sometimes it's hard to be a booster. Giving all your love to just one hood. You'll have bad times and it will have good times,
Coming up with videos you can't understand...
OK, I have posted some crappy videos promoting Helltown but this one really stinks. It's 2:18 long. Any broadcaster, even the Fountain Square Not-So-Jumbotron wants even times, :15, :30, 1:00....
It lists 4 businesses & no organizations, no churches. The testimonies are vague, some of the grammar is bad and nobody is actually identified. The fade in on the text looks like some kind of retinopathy blind spot.
And what is up with the weird initial font?
It's Northside, not North Side. That's ,like, Sharonville or something.
Sure it's just north of UC but it has easy highway access & easy downtown access. It has great bus connectivity as well as bicycle connectivity.
The over repetition at the end blows & the music just cutting off is ridiculous. It could have faded out or the video could have been lengthened or shortened to fit the music.
I shouldn't be a jerk but it's kinda like in Mad Men when the guy wants to sell Jaguar's like used Fords on the radio, ya know?
oh, well, guess I'm just a prudish snob.

Drive Your Bike

In this bike safety clip, where English seems to be a second language for the cast, we see the elements of traffic safety discussed from a bicyclist POV.
Note that "Taking the Lane" is never mentioned and stupid mushroom cap helmets are never mentioned. You see, these aberrations are only recently introduced to our society by militantly entitled pencil neck geeks.
The anti Dobbsian approach to cycling will eventually be the last nail in the tire of the bicycling movement but it won't be seen til everyone is tethered to a driverless car and then it will be too late.

A Cold Dark Night

This picture from Wired and the time of season reminded me of the story of Dr Richard Allison crawling out of bed in the middle of the night & riding his horse from present day downtown Cincinnati to Charlotte Chambers Ludlow's place in present day Northside around 1800.
There was, of course no artificial light, no paved roads, no heated leather seats. Well, the horse...
Not knowing the date, there's no way to know the phase of the moon nor how cloudy it was. Back then, the night sky in Cincinnati was clear and crowded with stars. Still, it must have been a dark, cold. lonely trip.

Ideology & Horror

This is an odd test about psychology & ideology.
I tend to believe that people who hate themselves tend to swing left, people who swing right have a tendency towards paranoia & agoraphobia. This is my opinion based on my studies at the Van Pelt school of psychology.
In the article it states:
One finding? That conservatives respond much more rapidly to threatening and aversive stimuli (for instance, images of "a very large spider on the face of a frightened person, a dazed individual with a bloody face, and an open wound with maggots in it,"
This intrigues me since I am a big horror fan. While I might respond rapidly to some of these images, it would be with a, "WOAH! Cool!" and not with a knee jerk revulsion. Not sure what the scientists were looking for.
I tend to see myself as more of an old school conservative and not the paranoid reactionary type that claims the description today. I see the so called modern liberal as being more closed minded, insular and controlling and not open to new things at all.
Ravi Iyer of the University of Southern California), who note that "successfully monitoring and attending negative features of the environment, as conservatives tend to do, may be just the sort of tractable task…that is more likely to lead to a fulfilling and happy life than is a constant search for new experience after new experience."
Unfortunately, I think these scientists are taking a fairly biased view here based on popular society.
Of course that is the society we live in, so...

OK, dunno if this is horror or just a really deranged lawyer cracking up on TV. It's odd advrtising and his name on his logo is weird, too. Why focus on the middle letter of the name? quiMbob?

Bakshi's Ass

Robert Crumb's bid for solidarity with Charlie Hebdo shows an extremely detailed illustration of Mohammed's butt. Crumb cautions that it is not the butt of a prophet but the butt of a film maker, however.
FWIW, Robert Rodriguez has taken on the task of creating a live action movie (that will undoubtedly use massive CG) of Fire & Ice, a collaboration of Frank Frazetta & Ralph Bakshi in 1983. Sony has purchased the film, so who knows WHAT will ranspire....

In a sign of the imminent end times, The Fountain Square South parking garage will be closed temporarily. This, of course, comes on the heels of the street parking rate hike forced on us by the dreaded and maybe not so human, John Cranley.
A master stroke, carried out with Illuminati like precision. No doubt parking rates will quintuple when the garage reopens later this spring.
Who knows how many people will vanish, lost, searching in vain for a parking spot for eternity like so many Parking Dutchmen. How many will succumb to the ghastly cravings of C.H.U.D. as they shamble from remote parking lots to their places of employment?
oh, the humanity
OTOH, it might be a good opportunity for folks to acquaint themselves with Metro.

I'm actually in line with Mo on this one. If you don't take the word of Blogging Isn't Cool as gospel, please leave your home, work addresses and your commute map so my boys can track you down and slaughter you and everybody around you.

The Republic of Cincinnati

Having no interest in professional sports, it's not often that I read any sports articles especially ones written by someone named "Doc".
This story, however looks at a sports issue in Cincinnati - that the Porktowners don't give a crap about OSU sports.
Well, yeah, but for the most part, Cincinnatians don't give much of a rodent's rear about Ohio in general. When I first moved to the Queen City about 30 years ago, I thought I had moved to an extension of Kentucky. Later I realized I was just in an Ohio community that has no relation to Ohio. I have been told Northern Kentucky has little to do with mainland Kentucky as well.
This doesn't do Cincinnati to well in Ohio politics. Heck, we have fat ugly suburbanite legislators who single Cincinnati out for the denial of funding. And nobody else in Columbus seemed to have had an issue with it.
As a lawmaker, ex Cincinnati mayor Charlie Luken has brought up the disconnect.
Ask yourself, how often do you see an Ohio flag flying in Cincinnati? There's probably more UK flags flying. But up in Dayton, Urbana, Tremont City & Columbus, it's pretty common.
A new state with the border of I275 would probably make a lot of sense. This 'Doc' character has only scratched the surface of this area's alienation from it's states.

The Need to test Politicians for Human DNA

Dude, here, in Campbell County KY, is a perfect example of why we need to test politicians to see if they are actually human beings, subterranean aliens or just Boogie Boys. While maybe just being a mutant - better safe than sorry.

I will Sunbathe on Your Grave !

OK, so "I will sunbathe on your grave" probably isn't as tough a threat as "I will spit/piss/dance on your grave but you might give it a shot next time you're bitching at somebody. When these two women did it they drew a lot of ire, one guy saying the women should be buried alive.
I see no problem with it as long as they clean off any oils they might have slimed the slabs with. Ths person taking the picture might have been the creepiest person in the mess.
Thig is, I have always liked bench type gravestones & I would hope people for generations to come might sit for a spell. No dress code, profanity, smoking, drinking AOK.
I don't know if sunbathing is allowed in cemeteries in general. Cincinnati's Spring Grove Cemetery has some secluded areas currently but I don't know their rules.
Anyway, if you don't want people lying on your grave, you can always put iron spikes all over it.

Humor in Disaster

As I have mentioned before, Horror Sells. Well, there's also humor in disaster. Heck, that's basically the whole idea behind slapstick. Take laurel & Hardy or the Three Stoofes, their pain & suffering was hilarious. In the past we enjoyed the humor of war. Hilarious romps in the South Pacific WWII in McHale's Navy, the raascally shenanigans Nazi POWs had in Hogan's Heroes, thie hyjinks of the Korean War in MASH, Viet Nam in Catch 22.
There's even more fun in apocalypse movies like This is the End & Shaun of the Dead.
Who can't forget the Cold War laugh riot, Dr Strangelove? The futuristic dark slapstick of Sleeper?
OK, so why the uproar about a comedy set in the Irish Potato Famine?
Monty Python set all sorts of humor against the backdrop of medieval poverty & desperation, the Spanish Inquisition, slavery & whatnot. What's changed?
Is it the rise of mamby pambyism or is it just plummeting self confidence fueled by 'liberal' self hatred?

The Holy Order of the GOP

These guys get at what I call, The Holy Order of the GOP. They get at why youngun's aren't going to the old churches. Schaeffer is, apparently an Eastern Orthodox Christian which kinda sets him apart with the wild evangelical christians even tho he & his parents were involved with establishing 'The Moral Majority' movement.
Frankly I see the same movement under many names, The Silent Majority, The Moral Majority, Neocons, The Tea Party... All basically the same & changing nuances over time to take over a political party. The fervor of the GOP is a good match for these guys. The corporate message that resonates in the religioustic orders is both silly and frightening.
Anyway, I'm no great fan of these guys but they're pretty right on this.

You can see more of Schaeffer's shit on Patheos

The War

Is Cincinnati's new parking meter policy, which introduces Sunday enforcement, part of the Global War on Christianity?
Canceling Sunday bus hours, starting Sunday streetcar hours late, are all on the table as the Regime of John Cranley moves to make it harder for people to get to church.
This seems to be in line with the plans of the alien insectoids to break the will of the human race, first with poisonous miniature drone/bug bites and now the death of religion in a thousand cuts sort of strategy.

The Art of Propaganda

This short Dutch movie is kinda cool. Since it never shows the woman talking it can be overdubbed in any language. Heck, you could just bag the script & make it a zombie movie. Well, if you can read what's written on the bodies, maybe not...
Anyway, as people use their religion to square any deviant, antisocial thing they want to do you could apply almost any religion to this piece, too.
But most people wouldn't slaughter the director to prove how wonderful their religion was.

Bike Racks
