If you haven’t read Many Dull Knives by JACKEt, you probably should. Her wit is as dry as a good martini (or, at least, half of it), and her cynicism knows only few boundaries! She’s graciously made a guest comic for Victor 70, and I was able to return the favour during her vacation last fall. Enjoy my take on it, and check out the rest of her work!
My latest bit of silliness cooked up at 3am upon hearing that Gordon has been upgraded to a tropical storm. Batten down the hatches, there’s a storm coming!
Well, I was going to post a teaser for a new video project I’m working on, but YouTube doesn’t like the music I used, so I’m left without anything interesting to show for my next ambitious endeavour. If you’ve been to Disney’s ElecTRONica dance party either at California Adventure or Hollywood Studios, you might be familiar with the Power Surge stage show before the official opening of the party. I’m at present working on recreating a version of the show to enjoy at home. More details as they come, but for now, please enjoy my other offerings at my YouTube channel!
I gotta give some proper respect to Google for their Doodle yesterday celebrating the 115th birthday of pioneer aviatrix Amelia Earhart. I often appreciate Google’s clever variations on their home page logo, but this is the first time I recall anyone in aviation being honoured with a Doodle. Here’s hoping that Igor Sikorsky gets his one day!
So this 50-year-old hipster, John Brennan was taking a business trip from Portland to San Jose when he was selected for the TSA’s favourite controversial toy: the “nudie scanner.” Well, instead of letting Big Brother take a naked photo of him to sell to some dubious website, he chose the manual option. Long story short, the TSA agent found traces of nitrates on his gloves after the screening. Nitrates, among other, more common sources of exposure, are found in explosives. Mr. Brennan was in the process of being detained when he decided that he had nothing to hide, and exposed everything right there in the terminal. Consequently, he was arrested and charged with indecent exposure.
“I was mostly motivated by the absurdity of it all. The irony that they wanna see me naked. But I don’t get to take my clothes off?”
In a rational decision by a local court judge, Brennan was found not guilty on the basis that his actions constituted peaceful protest and were protected under the Bill of Rights. Score one for the good guys?
