Can You Hear Me Now?

“The Rev. Grant Storms, a Christian fundamentalist best known for his bullhorn protests of the [gay] Southern Decadence festival in the French Quarter, was arrested for allegedly masturbating at a Metairie park Friday afternoon.” [NOLA, via Towleroad]


I’m sh… aw fuck, I can’t even keep up any faux outrage.

If the guy wanted to increase his diaper score he should have wanked off into the megaphone.

+1 for Fundie proclivities
+1 for anti-gay
+3 for creepily wanking it near kids

Total of 5 diapers

Heh. I’ve been to Southern Decadence, those boys are batshit crazy.

Was this guy masturbating to another guy or to a squirrel or what? You never know with fundies.

ADD: Oh, shit- it was little kids he was masturbating to. Gross.

BTW, in related conservative circle-jerk news, the Palinites have a new SEKRIT PLAN: pulling over to the side of the road.

No seriously:…-just-stop-event

(you may have browser troubles, as the FUCKTARDS can’t even bother to serve it with a sensible content type)

Essentially, everyone’s supposed to pull over to the side of the road in protest on March 13th. What’s next, teabaggers who are so far-right that they can’t drive anywhere but the shoulder? ;)

@al2o3cr: 3 consecutive 90 degree right turns will produce the same result as one 90 degree left turn would have to begin with. so, obviously the teapublican’ts must work thrice as hard as us to achieve the same result.

Turns out someone was thinking of the children.

See, now this is the sort of thing that happens when the administration stops defending the Defense of Marriage Act.

Hey – I completely understand. Sometimes you just have to rub one out.

I think it’s more like 4 diapers – no children, no wetsuit, no partner of any kind. If you can show me he was rubbing one out to images of the guys in the parade, get back to me.

T/J: Jane Russell died today. I hope the hamsters can find some boobtastic pinup photos.

@Dodgerblue: They were special. I saw her in Company on B’way.

Oh wait – kid angle bumps it to 5 diapers:

The first woman told deputies she was taking her children to the playground and parked next to the van at about noon. As she was walking around her own vehicle, she noticed the van windows were down and the occupant was “looking at the playground area that contained children playing, with his zipper down…,” the report said. The woman noted that he was masturbating and quickly ushered her children out of her car.

Sick fuck.

Heh. Nick Denton’s sort-of mea culpa for the fucked up Gawker redesign. Page views appear to have plummeted in the past couple weeks.

@SanFranLefty: I basically stopped reading Jalopnik because I could never get the story I wanted to read.

@blogenfreude: Same here with Deadspin, Gawker’s Blind Items, and The Jez.

@blogenfreude: Is he behind the Gizmodo re-design? Same problem.

@Dodgerblue: Yup. All Gawker sites converted a couple weeks back.

But while y’all are waiting, enjoy Jason Kottke’s original Gawker design from 2002:

Nick didn’t like it too much. Background too dark, masthead text not logo-y enough. Two weeks later, I sent him this, with a half-assed technicolor logo that I’d dashed off in Photoshop in like 30 minutes.

That half-assed technicolor logo is the one still in use today.

Atrios has the same light-blue blogger design he started with, and the site works. This site – nice and clean, white background, a couple of toys, and the story links across the top (think I suggested that, but nojo will remember). This is paradise compared to the Gawker mess.

If the answers are Scott Walker, Mu’ammar Qaddafi, or Charlie Sheen, then this week’s game of Who Said It? is gonna be the toughest ever.

@blogenfreude: think I suggested that, but nojo will remember

Great Minds. I had been thinking about it, and then you wanted to make a post “sticky” or something so it didn’t get buried after a day, and so I used that as an excuse to get around to it.

But the innovation — in a blog context, not a Sunday-newspaper context — is Gawker’s. They may have gone off a cliff with their latest redesign, but give them credit for knowing how to make a blog breathe over the years.

@nojo: … give them credit for knowing how to make a blog breathe over the years.

Make the commenters do the work.

@Right Reverend Benedick: Outsourcing work to unpaid labor – what could be more American?

Sometimes you feel like bustin’ a nut, sometimes you don’t!
