You May Say I’m a Dreamer

Above us only sky killers.“It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States.” —Eric Holder, not talking about Abraham Lincoln. [Mother Jones]


Yes and we can talk about my anal bleach.

Somewhat related to anal bleach, we’re having a primary election today to pick a successor to L.A.’s Mayor Smiley McZipper, who is now rumored to be enhancing his international affairs dossier by boffing a Mexican actress. Turnout is reportedly very low; polling is showing “I Don’t Give A Fuck” in the lead.

That unpleasantness in the 1860’s comes to mind.

@CaptHowdy: Do you know that H&R Block uses a very similar green square? How much are they paying you movie graphics people for the advertising?

@Dave H:
perhaps I will color correct my greenscreen

Can we offer suggestions of where they could bomb? In a totally theoretical scenarionish kind of way?

@Dave H: I doubt they’ve got quite the right green. Greenscreen green is not just green it’s a very particular green that outgreens all other greens for the purpose of making green invisible. I spent a couple of very unpleasant days at Silvercup in NYC on the deck of a fake whale boat being blasted by water canons in front of a vast green backdrop. When seen on TV I was on the deck of said boat sailing a pristine Alaskan fjord as whales leapt in the background as Jerry Seinfeld made a pitch for AmEx. I was not pleased and I was not paid enough.

It’s not easy being green.


more specifically it is a green which – like the color of Bohners skin – is not found in the natural world so it can be “keyed” out. although the keying is done digitally now.

@Benedick: “Do you realize you are trying to purify quite possibly the purest air on the planet?”

That made my snowquestered day, good sir. A day in which I am cellar dwelling for a cash-only arrangement that allows me a dry place moderately close to my work in ONC but requires me to put up with a slightly unstable roommate who apparently has never used the operational end of a vacuum cleaner.

I could be home building slush-and-snow men with my kids, instead of this.

@Beggars Biscuit: Oh dear Christ, you remember the copy???

@Tommmcatt Can’t Believe He Ate The Whole Thing: I don’t do things by halves.

BREAKING: Sen Rand Paul is doing an old-fashioned, talk-til-you-drop filibuster of Brennan’s nomination to head the CIA. It’s on, bitches!

@nojo: Awesome-est post in the history of Stinque and its ancestors.

@nojo: Extra? Extra?? I’m the ruggedly handsome one with the accent. It only ran for six weeks and I may have made as much as $5,000. I suspect that Mr. Seinfeld was not working for scale.

@Benedick: Could have sworn it was Darrell Hammond doing Sean Connery.

@nojo: Coffee —> keyboard

@Benedick: Smashing, darling.

@JNOV: The boat deck was set on rockers about 15 ft off the studio floor so the stagehands could rock it. There were a couple of water cannons, huge fans, and a giant green screen behind us. Everything else is digital.

@Benedick: And you didn’t break your hip!

Steve approves, BTW.
