You got to stand for some fucking thing, right?

We love a good oath, yeah?
And as they go, this one's pretty hard to beat.

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.


Fire Rises

I been trying to write SOME fucking thing about this for weeks and weeks.
I'm having a real hard time coming up with anything even remotely comprehensible.

Every now and then you come across a piece of work that affects you so FUCKING profoundly, it's like the experience has irrevocably changed the shape of your brain.

Yeah, like that.
And when I watched it AGAIN, immediately after the first time, it felt even more so.

Never mind the next 12 or 13 times.
But who's counting?

One thing I CAN tell you is that these



are NOT just a movie, a sequel, and a "threequel" (sorry, that last bit of Media Cute nearly popped me a rib).

Make no mistake, this is a definite Trilogy, in the most meaningful sense of the word.

You might not have noticed, in the second one, I certainly didn't, but it's resoundingly clear as you watch The Dark Knight Rises.

This can't be safe

I seen this on the news a couple nights ago.

Yeah, those are little cheeseburgers on each slice.

Take a minute to let that sink in.

Apparently available only at Pizza Hut (Penis Slut, as we used to call it in my yout', you know, when Comedy was King) in their Middle East stores.
There's probably some reason, but I can't think of one.

Thing is, you know, when I was still at home, if anyone even jokingly suggested eating something like this, they'd get, you know, smacked.
Unless, obviously, it was like the tail tail end of a really bad drunk.
Like a Jack Daniel's drunk.

Back when, you know, the 5 Major Food Groups were:

  1. Beer
  2. Whiskey
  3. Smokes
  4. Girls who aren't all that fussy about undergarments, and
  5. Anything hot you can get to eat after 3 AM
Even THEN, we would have found that pretty disgusting.


Well, I'm just pissed that we can't get it here.


As simple as that

Actual quote from actual (smallish-type) human.

Mom asked me why I like The Avengers so much.

And I thought about it.
And, you know, every day, all the people I see, everyone around me, is small and cheap and selfish. Petty, greedy, and lazy. They don't care about anyone but themselves and they don't care about anything that isn't theirs.

So I like to watch The Avengers.
I get to spend a little time with a better class of people, you know?

Yeah, honey.
I know.
