Friday Quote & Goat Blogging

This week’s quote is from the Bruce Willis psychological thriller, Color Of Night:

Always guess the cliche… and you won’t be disappointed.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s baby pygmy goats…

Bouncy!

Friday Quote & Cat Blogging

This week’s quote is from the ridiculously underrated post-apocalyptic sci-fi action comedy, Six-String Samurai:

You four have failed me for the last- nice shoes.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s wee cats…

Aww…

Teh Serious

Okay, sure, I can sort of buy Krugman and Lemieux’s premise that horrible ideas like austerity, torture, and endless war all stem from the same macho impulse to to prove oneself a Manly Serious Man Of Action Who Can Make The Hard Choices, but why is it that it always seems to be someone else who pays the price for those “hard choices”?

It’s kinda hard to respect the machismo and courage of a pundit or politician who calls upon complete strangers to make sacrifices instead of themselves or their family, friends, or peers.  If I saw Cheney and Dubya personally ducking bullets in Baghdad, or Paul Ryan urging tax increases for himself and his wealthy benefactors as the first step to shrink the deficit, then I would be impressed.

Maybe Atrios has it right after all, and they really are sadists.

Friday Quote & Morgan Freeman Blogging

This week’s quote is from Woody Allen’s Husbands And Wives:

It’s the second law of thermodynamics – sooner or later everything turns to shit.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s Morgan Freemans…

So majestic…

Friday Quote And Tarsier Blogging

This week’s quote is from the B-movie spoof sequel The Lost Skeleton Returns Again:

“The jungle is no place for bitterness.”

“The jungle is every place for bitterness. It sows and reaps it like so much cane sugar. The jungle gets into your blood and builds tiny little houses of pain and you don’t wanna be there when the rent’s due because the anaconda, funny thing, they don’t know how to read a lease. Seems they’ve never learned! But the only thing longer than a croc’s mouth is the time it takes to swallow you whole. So next time you talk to me about jungles and bitterness, next time you’re trying to find your eyes with both hands, just keep that in mind… that is, if you still have a mind.”

“The jungle is a dangerous place, that’s true, but anyone who has ever seen two monkeys give each other things knows that it’s a happy place, too. So let’s remember that and keep in mind you can eat pretty much anything you see, so have fun.”

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s tarsiers…

Hello, freaky!

Whither The NRA?

It’ll be interesting to see where the NRA comes down on California’s attempt to ban 3D gun printing.  I can’t think of any other issue where the goals of unfettered, unaccountable gun ownership and maximum gun manufacturer profits aren’t perfectly aligned, much less completely at odds.

The Rubberbandits explain why horses are an all-around superior mode of transport.

Probably not entirely safe for work unless you’re wearing headphones…

Friday Quote & Panda Blogging

This week’s quote is from Overnight Delivery, which… I saw, apparently.

You may be cute when you’re angry, but you still hit like a nine-year-old.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s baby pandas…

Aww.
