00h UTC; THURSDAY, 1 NOVEMBER 2012: As Indecision 2012 draws all the closer in our supposedly "morally superior" United States, with Megastorm Sandy throwing quite the wrench vis-a-vis the possible final outcomes thereof (not to mention attempts by the GOP Presidential wannabe, Mitt Romney, to cast Reasonable Doubt upon the "REAL AmeriKKKan" voter vis-a-vis incumbent Barack Obama as risk backfiring, if not already), The World WILL be Watching all the more. Especially considering that Our Ant...

Nervous people get rundown here?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Tuesday, October 30, 2012,

00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 31 OCTOBER 2012: Before I begin, I should acknowledge that the Engrishfied titling of today's post was inspired by this alleged subtitle from a Hong Kong martial-arts potboiler of the type common until a few years before the handover of control thereof from the British to the Chinese, when English subtitles were actually required in cinematic releases:

"Who gave you the nerve to get killed here?"

In case there are some of you who feel I may be showing rank insensitivity to t...

Channeling the anger of God and the ultimate judgment

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, October 29, 2012,

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 30 OCTOBER 2012: As Hurricane Sandy prepares to make landfall this evening somewhere along the Northeast Corridor of the United States, eventually to clash with an on-shore winter storm system expected to produce over a foot of snow in parts of the Alleghennies and Appalachians (and make matters worse, at that, across the Northeast Corridor), there can be no mistaking where the Elmer Gantryites are throughout: Overdoing it on the excesses of pathetically hysterical overinter...

00h UTC; MONDAY, 29 OCTOBER 2012: First off, some Appy Polly Loggies for those of you as had problems with this afterlunch (American time), either accessing this site or performing your duties in furtherance thereof; as per usual, they don't offer any sort of due and proper explanation for any planned server outages or powerdowns, and about the only way you learn about such is if your site loads slower than usual thanks to LinkReferral-related iconography being unable to dow...

00h UTC; SUNDAY, 28 OCTOBER 2012: Perhaps the one subpopulation most stoked up about the onset of Perfect Storm II (as in Hurricane Sandy's combining forces with an on-shore storm system by late Monday or Tuesday somewhere in the Northeast Corridor) would have to be the Elmer Gantryite Prolefeed Contingent, what with such having power and potential for "winning hearts and minds" over to their delusory notion that such is a Divine Warning that Unless the "REAL AmeriKKKan," Expected Also to Be...

00h UTC; SATURDAY, 27 OCTOBER 2012: So much for that Grand Delusion being pushed among Elmer Gantryite types insisting that the "REAL AmeriKKKan" who calls himself a "Good Christian" in the bargain cannot out of Good Conscience and their Deeply- and Dearly-Held Beliefs be expected to vote for Democratic candidates in the upcoming Indecision if they value the defence of Our Dear Lovely Nation as a Bible-Believing Christian Land--especially so one on the model of apartheid South Africa, which i...

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 26 OCTOBER 2012: So much for that Grand Delusion of the Romney/Ryan campaign of Indecision 2012 suggesting that the best approach towards helping the poor in line with the conflated notion seeking to equate ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe with Our National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar is to essentially turn over Federal responsibility for welfare policy to the several States through "block grants" as would "encourage innovation***consistent wit...

00h UTC; THURSDAY, 25 OCTOBER 2012: Your Correspondent spent much of the damp, foggy, dreich day yesterday in Rochester attending a Mental Health Consumers' Conference as was devoted to discussing issues of interest to the "mentally-defective" such as moiself, with much being discussed on Indecision 2012's posing clear and present threat, thanks to "Tea Party" and suchlike elements, to the vulnerable and socioeconomically-challenged. For which Your Correspondent DOES intend to vote on Electi...

00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 24 OCTOBER 2012: As I write this post here in the Minnwissippi, what with the days getting shorter and shorter with the onset of winter all the more imminent (howbeit, according to some estimates, drier than usual), it looks rather dull and dreary (howbeit without the threat of rain, yet with a Dense Fog Advisory expected on the overnight aggravated by one day more of unusually warm weather for the season followed by colder, wetter such). In any event, most (though not al...

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 23 OCTOBER 2012: Exactly a fortnight now before the very Indecision 2012 as may be the key to whether Our Dear Lovely and Morally-Superior AmeriKKKa can continue as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations as of Divine Will and Right ... or will be sold out to the "New World Order," like Esau's selling his birthright to Jacob for bread and lentil soup (see Genesis 25:29-34).

Which should be enough for the Real Americans among us to start asking where exactly it saith that the d...

00h UTC; MONDAY, 22 OCTOBER 2012: Given reports that overzealous family connexions vis-a-vis an electronic voting masheen operator could come into play to manipulate Indecision 2012's final result in certain areas, thereby posing danger to Liberty in the process, what exactly would preclude voters using these very masheens from doing their own bit of "watch-and-ward" to make sure their vote is correctly and accurately recorded at the polling station on the day (especially where paper receipt...

00h UTC; SUNDAY, 21 OCTOBER 2012: As these Rather Interesting Times for Our Dear Lovely Nation continue unabated heading into the final fortnight of Indecision 2012, perhaps it may be interesting, for starters, to ponder whether Saturday's municipal elections call by the Palestinian Authority (as succeeded only in the Fatah-controlled West Bank; Gaza, which is controlled by Hamas, ignored the same) may be a reflection of the serious polarisation Our Dear Lovely Nation is facing.

As for Mitt Romney, the lead-off photo this time around does relate in some way or another to that "binders full of women" r...

I'd appreciate your comments in this respect, be they at the end of these blog posts or through the e-mail feedback form at the bottom of this page.

  • With the clients' list of that Zumba studio-cum-House of Ill Repute out Kennebunkport way having been made public in court proceedings, it'll be interesting to see whether same includes some of Old Dirigo's more prominent Elmer Gantryite types, "Tea Party" leaders and suchlike among the weird and unwholesome generally.

00h UTC; SUNDAY, 14 OCTOBER 2012: If there was one thing as punctuated the day yesterday for Your Correspondent, it was a surprise power outage this morning as afflicted "the projects" where I reside, beginning just after 7 this morning (local time) and with power restored just after 10:15; a blown (and outdated, at that) pole fuse was to blame therefor, requiring replacement of both pole fuse and fuse supporter. Luckily, power is back up as I produce this blog post.

00h UTC; SATURDAY, 13 OCTOBER 2012: As if Walmart wasn't already becoming its own worst joke, unravelling as it is in the face of industrial action by "associates" (as the retail giant euphemistically calls its employees) of late, along comes word of their emphasising their "Neighbourhood Market" approach in further expansion plans from next year--as in smaller stores in inner-city "group areas" offering a limited selection of groceries aimed at forcing "healthy competition" at the expense o...

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 12 OCTOBER 2012: It seems as if Brooklyn has suddenly become the hot name for to use on all manner of consumer brand products for some reason or another. Witness, as example of one such as is being heavily advertised on the vidiot's lamp of Diogenes, The Olde Brooklyn Lantern, designed to look like those farmer's kerosene lanterns, but with nine LED lamps on battery power (and advertised to last 100,000 hours).

Which, for all I know, probably has no connexion with Brooklyn pr...

00h UTC; THURSDAY, 11 OCTOBER 2012: If there is anything to say for the leading image today, readers, it would have to be this: For one, Your Correspondent has refused out of principle and conscience to shop Walmart on a recurring basis, mostly out of concerns about its taking advantage of the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKan" in his Luscious Glory of the grossest poverty, fecundity and ignorance.

And for another, he empathises with the lowly Walmart employees as are Doing The Right Thing to call ou...

00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 10 OCTOBER 2012: Certainly not to be confused with--

But then again, in terms of bizarro concepts used by Elmer Gantryite types as prolefeed fodder, the acme thereof would have to be that insisting that God is preparing to Withdraw His Protective Hand From Our Dear Lovely Nation as Punishment for Straying From His Divinely-Ordained Will and Prophecy ... but what they're not telling you here is that God's Protective Hand is also The Invisible Hand of the Marketplace held dee...

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 9 OCTOBER 2012: For some reason or another, Your Correspondent decided to spend some quality (or close to it) shopping time this afterlunch at the Target store here in Winona (which, know, is a crosstown bike ride via the bike path around Lake Winona), and among other worthwhile items so purchased was one of those French-press coffee pots. No, not for coffee; instead, he's thinking about using it to brew up his iced tea per the concentrate method, involving as it does an el...

Plan 13 from Bizarro World Boolk?

00h UTC; SUNDAY, 7 OCTOBER 2012: It appears that GOP Presidential wannabe Mitt Romney may be resorting to the depths of trick, deceit, depavity, even outright fraud, to win Indecision 2012, and By Any Means Necessary--all the while trying to cover his tracks by insisting that such is a Mission From God to Reclaim Our Dear Lovely Nation. Witness these two tricks from last Wednesday's Presidential debate:
  • Governor Romney's use of a right-wing debating tactic known as the "Gish Gallop" (a/k/a "sp...

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 5 OCTOBER 2012: Your Correspondent should like to explain at this time that the inspiration for the title of today's post is a play on the campy science-fiction stinkola Plan 9 From Outer Space (1958), regarded by critics as perhaps the single worst film ever made for reasons such as these:
  • Bela Lugosi, who was to star in the film, died three days into production, forcing producer/director Ed Wood to use as stand-in his wife's chiropodist.
  • The production budget being rather ab...

Meanwhile, considering where the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan brand of socioeconomic recovery agenda is essentially one of "you're on your own," Your Correspondent has to wonder if such implies expecting the "REAL AmeriKKKan" to turn all the more unto themselves, their resources,...

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 2 OCTOBER 2012: With this the 51st birthday of Your Correspondent, you just have to wonder where all that time went in such Interesting Times as we're seeing now in this world so wide when all is said and done. Especially on this Indian summer's evening here in the Minnwissippi, which will probably be one of the last such inasmuch as the forecast up here calls for showers from Wednesday evening into Thursday--not to mention cooler and more seasonable weather (maxima in the m...

Meet Your Correspondent:

Iludium Phosdex Dyslexic. Unemployable because of past psychosexual abuse; hence, dependent upon State charity (and trying to supplement it through the Online Mall on this site). One of The People Our Parents Warned Us About who DO happen to have opinions. Yet nonetheless opinionate, as carried out in this rather esoterically-inclined blog, this New Explosion of Pedigreed Bull on Teh Innerwebz.
