Beyond Precious

helen thomas….nazi in a girdle!

the best part of the news last night was ari (jew) fleisher reporting on this with glee. ooh, he must have hated her guts. now we all know what he knew.

(and ignore some of michael savage’s commentary…he sounds like my dad–who calls me a commie too)


In other news, my neighbor let me play with his iPad for awhile yesterday. He actually let me hold it and stuff.

@baked: The temptation, still, is to assume that the truth, in every case, is whatever is the opposite of anything Ari Fleischer says.

she’s on video prommie! it ain’t ari’s opinion.
the senile old coot should be kicked out of the press corp.
but she won’t. maybe next time when she yells out n****r !n****r !!!!!

@baked: Oh, I know, she said it and it was attrocious, I was just saying, I hate to see Ari being right, it offends the proper order of the universe.

@JNOV: He let you hold it?? I’m all kinds of impressed. I wonder if noje would let us hold his?

@JNOV: He’s trying to seduce you, geek style.

@Benedick: I think noje would let you play with it all day long.

@Mistress Cynica: Haha! He must want a threesome with his wife. She seemed to approve of the iPad fondling.

I was afraid to touch it — I was afraid I might break it or something. It is very, very nice. I did run into The No Flash on the iPad Problem, though.

You can read eBooks on it, yes? If so, I might have to get one…

@Capt Howdy: Jr and I are IMPRESSED! Congratulations! We can’t wait to play it!

hey thanks!
the game looks better than that. or most of that. they had to take stuff that was not completed for the trailer.

@Capt Howdy: Jr was like, “Wait, is that…wait, is that…?” the whole time until the end. Then we might have cheered a little. I just hope it has a better soundtrack than Fallout 3. Repetitive music is the only thing that will keep me from playing. March 2011! That’s a long way off. :-(

the soundtrack is actually pretty good. lots of talk about that around here.
and march 2011 doesnt seem that far when you have to make the thing before then.
we have a lot to do but thanks for the encouragement.

Breaking – Helen Thomas retires, per

@redmanlaw: I guess she won’t be counting on that Jewish Federation speaking tour.

@Mistress Cynica: She should have said “I meant the Mexicans should just go back,” and she’d be fine.

BTW, the Mexican hating Hispanic GOP gubernatorial candidate in New Mexico is ahead by 2, per Rasumssen. The Dem playbook is out the window and they are just making shit up as they go along now.

@Capt Howdy: True — I bet you’re under the gun right now. We’ll be waiting with bells on!

@Capt Howdy: It looks great. Though I’ve never actually played a game like that. I really should try. I love pinball so it’s not like I’m completely lacking in mad game skillz yo. Are those Republicans that appear out of the dark? I take it the game is to shoot them. I could definitely get onboard with that.

@JNOV: If noje didn’t live so far away he might at least let me look at it. I hear it’s quite heavy and surprisingly solid to the touch. Maybe he’d at least take some pictures and post them? Then at least us east-coasters could get to see what’s already been seen by most of Sandy Eggo.

@Benedick: You are truly gifted. One day noje will realize that fact.

@Dodgerblue: So who are you voting for as Lite Guv and AG in the primary tomorrow? I still haven’t decided for sure. Leaning towards Hahn for Lite Guv even though I want to get rid of Mayor McDreamy a year early. I don’t think I want to vote for the Facebook guy for AG, but Kamala Harris has done Brownie-level heckuva job here as SF DA. Isn’t Delgadillo running for AG too?

@Benedick: He talked at great length about his iPad when I was in Sandy Eggo. He didn’t show it to me, let alone touch it. But maybe you’re different.

@SanFranLefty: I’ve worked with Hahn and I like and respect her, so she got my vote. For AG, I voted for Kamala but don’t have a particularly good reason. Delgadillo is dumber than a box of hammers.

@SanFranLefty: Some things a guy just feels more comfortable about sharing with another guy.

@JNOV: I thank you.

Would it be inappropriate for me to publicly hope that noje has got some protection for his? What with everyone handling it and admiring it God knows what it could pick up.

@Benedick: I was thinking of going down to the Apple Store to play with one. Would that be wrong?

@Dodgerblue: You might want to talk it over with your gf first. It’s the kind of thing can come a shock. But I’m pretty sure that once you’ve seen one up close you are going to want to get your hands on it to get a feel for what it can do. And no of course it’s not wrong. You’ve probably wanted one of your own for years but didn’t know how to come out and say it. Just bear in mind that once you switch there’s no going back.

@nojo: And are we live-streaming Steve?

See now, I totally forgot that one of the first things you did was post pictures of it! Shows you what the attention span is of some of the commenters around here.

@Dodgerblue: Careful. Gawker (I think) reported that a swab of display iPads in an Apple store revealed all sorts of nasty staph and strep bacteria. Wear gloves or use lots of hand sanitizer.

@Benedick: No, we’re checking on the liveblogs, and waiting for the video to be posted tonight, when we’ll watch it on that iThingy.

@Benedick: The word for the day is “gyroscope”. Use it in a sentence. Or in an iPhone.

This should be fun: Howard Fineman just accused Google of giving BP non-paid high-ranking listings. Howard doesn’t know what he’s talking about, but it’s Google’s turn this week for the Group Hate.

@Benedick: I love pinball, too, and I would have a game in my house if I had room, I would have Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, my favorite pinball game ever. But if I really had the room, what I really want, is an old, full-size skeeball game. One of the most delightful premises in kevin Smith’s movie Dogma is that God loves to take human form so he/she can come to earth and play skeeball.

you know
there was serious talk about making him the first gay main player character in a game. no shit. only because its never been done before.

he sort of looks the part, no?

@Capt Howdy: I’m thinking Jerry Herman with a lot of spandex.

you should have seen the “choker” they took off him.

it was sooooooo gay.
