2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,800 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I know I’ve been very naughty in not posting at all this year.  But Santa, being an understanding fellow, has not forgotten all the good I have done.

In wishing all of you a Merry Christmas, I leave you with this Grinch Cloud and all my best wishes.

New bomb. Level: NBC

“While other networks aired live silent footage of memorial events, NBC’s Today show aired a segment with Kris Jenner from Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”  – BBC News online

Because lord knows, we all gotta know about her breast implant.  Thank God, NBC was there to catch that momentous discussion in US media history.  I know I would not have been able to sleep if they had skipped over that interview for a moment of respectful silence to the 2,700+ who lost their lives for no good reason.

An NBC spokeswoman said Tuesday’s show had "dedicated a considerable amount of time to September 11th coverage".

Oh, NBC.  We call this a facepalm.  Or, on twitter, we hashtag this as “a major fail”.

Is she renting that accent??

I once tried (and failed) to do a “Free iTunes a week” thing here, to let people who cared know that there is occasionally free stuff on iTunes.  That lasted for a couple seconds.  Anyway, I decided “Why the blazes not give it another go?”.  I went to iTunes and walked away a broken woman.

Raggamuffin by Selah Sue made me ask the question: “Is there hope for humanity?” and “Do you know the muffin man?”.  Two questions that, I believe, if answered, could bring about the dawning of the new age.  Maybe that is what Selah will do for us, because she’s not doing anyone favors in the music industry right now.  Her beat was horrible, her lyrics offensive (in their lack of creativity), and her melody an abomination.  Fie on her.  FIE!

I refuse to link to her song.  I do have standards.

 

Disclaimer: I own no stocks in iTunes.  And, thank heavens, I do not associate with Selah Sue.

Oh, that’s right.

Disclaimer: I was not involved in the Olympics.  At all.  I can neither confirm nor deny any involvement in the Mars landing.

And now, a moment of silence.

 

*silence*

 

You may continue your night

Men are pigs.

“Hnnnnuh?” is a good first reaction to that title.  But, that was cheap commercialism on my part to drag you in.  I apologize.

Mostly, I wanted to post this little link to this medium sized blog post about how today’s day and age and culture of "non-responsibility” is rather quickly degrading people to nothing more than their sexual organs and service to such.

Bam

In truth, I am shocked that not even the most fervent feminists and newspapers are not leaping on this OWC for their blatant abuse of the women minority.  But then, the MM and blind followers of popular fiction and fashion have never been ones to try something novel.  Like standing up for truth, justice and the American way.

Angels and Demon

Read it finally.  Meh.  I liked Da Vinci Code more.  And if you’ve read my review of DVC, then you know exactly what I mean.

 

As a side note: 95% of the “Catholic facts” were false.  Research, Mr. Brown.  Research.  Or at least admit a piece of fiction to be a piece of fiction.  And I am sorry that the Vatican turned down your request for access to their “secret archives”.  You should have just contacted me.  I visit that place twice a month, and then plan world domination with ol’ Benny.

 

I thank you.

Not dead yet.

I know it’s been a while but I am coming down off a mad-cap college high.  The coming weeks, as I prep for finals, will be smattered with posts.  I promise.  Also, I know I owe a zillion and seven comparing pictures.  I know this because they are taking up room on my laptop.  Need external hard drive!

 

Peace out.

Don’t be stupid.
