Evening completely non-political Open Thread

I swear.  No politics at all.

That ripping sound is the universe rending itself apart, its purpose finally fulfilled.

I lied.  That Prick Bastard John McCain staged a press conference today to demogog Benghazi, but he didn’t bother to attend the classified briefing on it.

    Fuck politics. I’m home after a long trip, and I’m drinking in lieu of sleep, which will not come for a while.

    Just wanted to thank all the Balloon Juicers for their good wishes in an earlier thread on the coming grandbaby.

    I’m happy to report that Olivia Juliet was delivered via C-section at 7:31 tonight, and that mom, dad, and baby are all doing wonderfully (but a little tired).

    Pictures tomorrow!

    Of course he didn’t attend the briefing. If he had known some facts, he couldn’t demagogue the hell out of it without knowingly telling untruths. By remaining deliberately ignorant, he was only telling untruths unknowingly. That’s very important to him, because lying is wrong but bullshitting is fine.

    Yes indeedy, fuck politics with razorwire.

    Amazingly, there are now four good movies in the theaters at the same time. Four good American-made movies. That’s astounding. I haven’t seen that since…I dunno…1995? A long loooooooooooooooooooooong time.

    The following movies kick ass & take names:

    LOOPER

    SKYFALL

    ARGO

    SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS

    I still have to pinch myself. Four movies made in America that are actually worth paying money to see. Damn! Usually, Shithole America doesn’t make four movies worth seeing in four years.

    Yes, although Laettner tends to shy away from the more flavorful varieties. American and Muenster are OK. Swiss and provolone, not so much.

    @mclaren:

    Argo is a brilliant film. Best movie of the year so far, IMHO.

    Looper was decent, not as much fun or as thrilling as Argo.

    I’m probably going to see Skyfall tomorrow or Friday, and definitely going to see Lincoln on Friday.

    Cats are not able to enjoy cheeseburgers. None of my cats has any interest in cooked red meat, actually. This is a fraud.

    What cats want, really, is Fancy Feast (green can) with extra broth or with creamy Florentine sauce–preferably fish.

    Mine seems to be very happy with chicken breast or turkey skin, and he has something of a taste for carnitas. He seems to have no interest in dark red meat, cooked or raw. Other cats I’ve met seem to like trout skin.

    @burnspbesq: and Joe Hart joins the David Seaman club. Five things he could have done in that situation. No, six. He could have just run over and punched a linesman and gotten thrown out, and Ibra wouldn’t have scored. Sheesh.

    The strange thing is that I’m a big fisherman, so I bring the cats all kinds of things they should absolutely love. The do like to smell and lick–but will not eat–the fish.

    Two sibling kitties at my house. One will eat any meat, fish, egg or cheese and will sing an adorable rowrr? song begging for it. (He also sings along with Adele on the radio.)

    The other prefers milk and bread and broccoli. And green beans.

    I had a wonderful cat that loved asparagus. It was the only thing he would ever jump up on the table and grab off of someone’s plate. Really cracked us up. Still miss the guy.

    Four good American-made movies….SKYFALL… Four movies made in America that are actually worth paying money to see. Damn!

    That would be the same American movie that was shot in the UK (with a few scenes in other countries that don’t include the US) featuring a British director filming a British actor as one of the most iconic British characters of all time? Yeah, great American flick, that one.

    Glad to see you haven’t lost your edge.

    Is this where we do cat talk?
    Oh, good. My cat wants to eat whatever I’m eating. She is convinced that I am keeping all the good stuff, Romney-style.* Won’t drink milk but craves all dairy products, especially when she can lick them off my plate which she waits for at every meal.

    *Just a li’l politix, this is BJ after all.
