Everyone’s A Critic, Especially When They’re Home Sick

leave a comment »

So here’s what I did while sick. I watched a buttload of movies from Comcast’s On Demand. Here are my insta-reviews.

Inglorious Bastards. I’m a Quinten Tarintino fan. I don’t get the hype for this movie. I guess I thought it was going to be something else — more Kill Billish, if that makes sense. I guess I was expecting more action or something. Loved the Hans character. Maybe It’ll grow on my upon a second viewing.

Terminator: Salvation. I didn’t hear good things about this film. It was OK. I’m not a huge Terminator fanboy to begin with, so I probably viewed this more like a generic action movie than an installment into the Terminator universe. I did like the nod to the first film, and I’m sure there were about a thousand inconsistencies with the whole time-travel aspect. But so what? I was sick.

X-Men: Origins. I also heard bad things about this film. Meh. It was what it was.

The Hangover. I’m a bastard when it comes to comedies. What some people find hilarious, I find stupid. I entered this movie with an open mind and knew I wasn’t going to find this movie as funny as other people. I think my problem was I saw this on Monday and was still burning up with a fever. This made me nod off a few times and I probably missed some stuff I shouldn’t have missed. I think the concept was good, but I knew there were a LOT of jokes that I just went “ho hum” at while the fellow patrons in a theater would be laughing out loud.

Zombieland. This had the potential to be great, but they screwed it up with the love story.

You know, I’ve had the Comcast super channel lineup for 5 years now, and I rarely watch movies from the HBO/Starz/Showtime/Cinemax stations. No more. I might as well make the most out of what I’m paying for this. I keep thinking that if I watch these movies On Demand then the experience will be ruined when I buy them for $4 at the local DVD/CD store. Then again, these films On Demand are full screen, so there will be a different viewing experience when I get them on DVD. Yeah.

Taking NyQuil with Diet Mountain Dew. Yeah, that sounds like a great idea.

Birthday Blues

leave a comment »

So yesterday I went to the niece-in-law’s 12-year-old birthday bash. Thank Christ these kids are getting older and pretty soon we won’t be going to these stupid events. They’re kids. They want to be with their friends. They don’t care if adults are present. And who can blame them? Anyway, two kids didn’t show up to this event because they were “sick.” Sick in the summer time? Whatever.

Well this morning I discovered that some other kids at this party should have called off sick as well. MOTHER FUCKER. I had to use a vacation day and will likely use one tomorrow.

And the cherry on this sundae? I managed to do something I thought I could never accomplish: offend the brother-in-law. Here’s the story. The mother-in-law brought the crack-whore niece-in-law’s 18-month-old kid to this event. I don’t really deal with the kid to begin with, but I don’t HATE the tot. Anyway, she began eating shit, and this of course meant her face was soon covered in slobber, spit and particles of food. Sorry, I don’t want to see that shit when I’m eating. I left the table and made a comment to the brother-in-law about how I couldn’t eat in front of the kid looking like that. It wasn’t a mean-spirited remark; I was explaining why I moved away from the table. But I guess he took it as offensive for whatever reason. He told Mrs. kkk about this and … well, let’s just say it was a fun ride home. I’m seriously considering not ever going back to the brother-in-law’s place because that’s how pissed off this made me — well that and the fact I’m a lunatic. You have a problem with something I say? Well then say it to me. Don’t report to the better half. And don’t get “offended” at something like that when you’ve previously made racist comments about other kids. Oh, I remember the, “light chocolate milk” remark, and that bitch, among other things, WILL be brought up at a future date should the occasion call for it.

Thanksgiving and Christmas should be a ball.

A D In A Legion Of R’s In Utah?

leave a comment »

I don’t really care about the following article. I’m just surprised Utah has a Democrat elected to anything.

The American Legion opened its national convention in Salt Lake City with high hopes the gathering would help “unite America” behind the war in Iraq. Instead, the veterans have found themselves in a fight with the city’s anti-war mayor.

Mayor Rocky Anderson, a Democrat in a city that is considered liberal by heavily Republican Utah’s standards, has accused the Bush administration of lying about the rationale for war. He has called President Bush a “complete disaster.”

And on Wednesday, he organized a big protest rally a few blocks from the Salt Palace Convention Center, just hours before Bush’s arrival here for an address to the American Legion.

“No more God-is-on-our-side religious nonsense,” Anderson said at the rally, absorbing waves of cheers and applause from the thousands of protesters as he called Bush a “dishonest, war-mongering, human-rights violating president.”

The American Legion was so offended by Anderson’s protest plans that it refused to extend the customary invitation to the host city’s mayor to deliver the welcoming address.

Chant Rant (So There Was A Purpose For Wicker Man 2006 Being Made)

leave a comment »

So a while back I talked about making an attempt to follow international soccer, starting with the English Premier League. Well, I don’t know if I’ve accomplished this goal or not because I have no clue what I’m watching on television. Premier League, Champions League, Whatever League. I have no clue what’s going on out there. However, I’ve been watching some games and overall I’ve enjoyed it. I’m not sure how this is going to keep up when American football kicks-off, but I’ll cross that hurdle when I get there.

Another topic I brought up in this previous entry was if I was going to cheer for a particular team or not. I probably won’t, but this may change. I think after a season or two when I watch my fair share of games, I may have a preferred team or two. But it won’t be because of the play on the field. It will be because of the crowd chants.

Oops. My bad. Here we go.

Please note I just took this clip off YouTube because it was the first one I found which featured live chanting/singing. I’m way too much of a n00b to know where any of these teams are based or what the chants mean. And I’m way too much of a lazy bastard to look any up any related information at this moment. What I’m trying to say is that soccer chants rock, and I look forward to hearing more as I follow soccer more closely.

Oh. My. God.

So I have that Vuvuzela-mix song playing as I’m typing and just saw the following image.

Ahahahahaha. I just saw a few more images from that video which are cracking me up. No way I’m posting them all. You’re going to have to watch the video for yourself. OH NO NOT THE BEES~!!!!!!!

OK, here’s another image.

And I wonder if this video is what people were looking for that visited KK’s Korner under the search term “Haters Gonna Hate Vuvuzela”?

Plaster Of Paris, Err, Kenya

leave a comment »

The Muslim Wookie Fucker is on to me now and my campaign of misinformation.

President Hussein dismissed a recent poll showing that a third of Americans don’t know he’s a Christian – and blamed an online campaign of misinformation by his conservative enemies for perpetuating the myth that he’s a Muslim.

The Kenyan Koffee Fetcher, speaking with NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams on Sunday afternoon, was equally dismissive of conservative talk show host Glenn Beck – saying he didn’t watch the OMGFAUXNEWSLOL2010~!!!! host’s Saturday rally in Washington but wasn’t surprised that Beck was able to “stir up” people during uncertain economic times.

Well, now the Non-Dialect Negro and I have something in common. I didn’t pay attention to that Hope-for-Whatever thing, either.

Williams, sitting under a tent in a rain-soaked New Orleans, where the First Family commemorated the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, asked America’s Top Imam why so many people were uncertain about something so fundamental as his faith.

“I can’t spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead,” quipped Osama, who took a deep breath to gather his thoughts when asked if the poll reflected his inability to communicate with voters.

Uh-oh. He took a deep breath. This must be serious.

And what has your birth certificate got to do with you being a Muslim?

Age-Discrimination Stories Never Get Old

leave a comment »

Gee, I wonder how the 28-year-old got this job?

A Uniontown woman has filed a federal age discrimination suit against the Laurel Highlands School District, claiming that its school board hired the less-qualified daughter of a school director instead of her, according to the suit.

The suit by Jamie A. Miller, 41, alleges she was discriminated against because the board hired a 28-year-old woman for the position.

In 2008, Miller applied for a job as a federal program coordinator and data analyst with the district. The job required a state principal’s certification and a knowledge of federal programs, according to the suit.

Miller, who has undergraduate and graduate degrees in education, also has a principal’s certification and has worked as a guidance counselor under a federal Title 1 program.

She has applied for three other jobs in the district. Miller is seeking a permanent injunction against the district preventing the school board from discriminating against her because of her age for the other positions.

The suit alleges the person hired for the job does not have the work or educational experience.

Miller filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 2009 in an effort to resolve the dispute. When she failed to reach an agreement though mediation, the commission granted Miller the right to sue the school district in June.

“We have our attorneys working on the case. Other than that I have no comment,” said district Superintendent Gary Brain.

Is this age discrimination? Unless the other candidate does not have the minimum qualifications, I don’t think so. But it’s funny as hell. Lord knows how many jobs I was turned down for because someone less qualified knew the boss’s relative/etc. I can think of one instance during my Ohio days in which this happened. Like to hear it? Here it goes.

Back in 2000 I applied for a job at Modern Machine Shop Magazine. I thought I was kicking ass during the interview, and then I got to the part where I would meet two co-workers. Everything fell to shit. Several months later I got a return call from this place. Why the delay? Because this place had given an offer to another candidate — a candidate that knew the two people I mentioned above. Funny thing is, the person who was offered this job was playing Modern Machine Shop off of another organization (F&W Publishing) and eventually went with F&W’s offer. I went back for another interview at Modern Machine Shop, but the place issued a hiring freeze right before I was to be given an offer. Was I being lied to and they just didn’t want me? Meh. After hearing how pissed off my would-be supervisor sounded on the phone because I was to alleviate a lot of his workload, I think it was legit. Plus a year or so later I spoke with someone that was familiar with this place and said that hiring freeze was real.

Oh, and remember that person who went to F&W Publishing? When I interviewed at F&W Publishing, I was asked if I would have a problem working in an all-female department. Gender discrimination? Hmmm…

Now back to the article.

My guess is that Miller is trying to embarrass the school district with this all-but-evident display of nepotism. As long as the 28-year-old has the minimum qualifications, I’m sure the district can say Miller is “overqualified.” Hey, I have another Ohio-related story. In 2001 (or was it 2002?), I applied for a job at MidFirst Credit Union. The job’s requirements were a Bachelor’s Degree and several year’s relevant experience. Who got the job? Someone who graduated from a local Community College with an Associate’s Degree and ZERO experience.

Memories.
