WTF. If I know you, and I discover that you're an ass online "for the lulz", expect a knee to the crotch or a slap in the face. Unbelievable.

After watching (and LOVING) the new Avengers movie this weekend, this strikes me as as especially funny for some reason. (What ever happened to Joss doing Wonder Woman?)

This is one of the most delightfully entertaining interviews I've read in quite a while. "Curmudgeon" doesn't even begin to describe her... :-)

"My fashion advice, particularly to men wearing shorts: Ask yourself, 'Could I make a living modeling these shorts?' If the answer is no, then change your clothes. Put on a pair of pants."

I'm really tired of the Nvidia drivers for Linux (broken, incomplete  nouveau, and flaky, buggy proprietary).  Anymore, if it's not sporting an Intel GPU, I'm just not going to try installing a Linux desktop on it. I don't game, I just want a decent desktop UI.  

Anybody interested in a well-loved but perfectly functional ThinkPad T61?

Fantastic, delightful, fun long-form episode from Motor Trend comparing the Tesla P85D and the Charger SRT Hellcat. If you like muscle cars at all, it's well worth your time.  There are some really delightful quotes in here from the host, Jonny Lieberman; I'm going to be watching more of his stuff.

This politicking is making me nuts, but yeah this, all this. Assholery will out.

Don't be a dick, no matter what your cause or how right you think you are.
 
In the event you're not clear what Sad Puppies, with its cute name, is really about, let's all spend a moment and be clear together. This is Vox Day:

"It's time for the church leaders and the heads of Christian families to start learning from ‪#‎GamerGate‬, to start learning from Sad Puppies, and start leading. Start banding together and stop accommodating the secular world in any way. Don't hire those who hate you. Don't buy from those who wish to destroy you. Don't work with those who denigrate your faith, your traditions, your morals, and your God. Don't tolerate or respect what passes for their morals and values.

"Religious liberty in America is dead. Well and good. That was a fatal mistake by the other side, because now that they don't respect our religious liberty, we have no reason or responsibility to respect theirs. Now it's just a raw power struggle and we have the numbers, we have the indomitable will of the martyrs, and we have the certain knowledge of God on our side.

"They have nothing but the carnal desires to which they are enslaved and the Prince of this fallen world, who has already been defeated by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Their world is post-Christian, post-rational, post-modern, post-morality, and post-law. It is absolutely doomed to failure of every kind, beginning with demographics.

"So stop cowering. Stop hiding in the closet. Stop trying to play by outdated rules that are no longer in effect. They imposed the new rules on us, now let's prove that we can play much better by them. What they don't realize is that those rules were in place for THEIR protection, not for ours. It's time to teach them the value and importance of religious liberty again.

"We are not given a spirit of fear. We are the sons and daughters of the Crusades and of the Inquisitions, institutions so terrible that they strike terror in human hearts nearly one thousand years later. We are the heirs of Christendom. They cannot defeat us and they cannot defeat our Lord. Augustus and the pagan emperors of Rome failed. The Ottoman emperors failed. The French Revolutionaries failed. The Communist killers of Spain, the Soviet Union, and China failed. The post-Christian seculars of the latter-day USA will fail too."

This is John C. Wright -- because two girls held hands on "Legends of Korra":

"Dear Mr DiMartino and Mr Konietzko,

"I admire your creative effort tremendously. I watched your shows, bought your merchandize, and supported and lauded you. I made your work a part of my imagination and a part of my life, and introduced your show to my children.

"And this is how you repay loyalty and affection?

"A children’s show, of all places, is where you decided to place an ad for a sexual aberration; you pervert your story telling skills to the cause of propaganda and political correctness.

"You sold your integrity out to the liberal establishment. In a craven fashion you deflect criticism by slandering and condemning any who object to your treason.

"You were not content to leave the matter ambiguous, no, but had publicly to announce that you hate your audience, our way of life, our virtues, values, and religion.

"From all the fans everywhere worldwide let me say what we are all feeling:

"Mr DiMartino and Mr Konietzko: You are disgusting, limp, soulless sacks of filth. You have earned the contempt and hatred of all decent human beings forever, and we will do all we can to smash the filthy phallic idol of sodomy you bow and serve and worship. Contempt, because you struck from behind, cravenly; and hatred, because you serve a cloud of morally-retarded mental smog called Political Correctness, which is another word for hating everything good and bright and decent and sane in life.

"I have no hatred in my heart for any man’s politics, policies, or faith, any more than I have hatred for termites; but once they start undermining my house where I live, it is time to exterminate them."

~~~~~

I'm not going to spend a ton of time on Sad Puppies; time is passing them by. But it was suggested elsewhere that my calling them "enemies" is intemperate.

My oldest daughter is gay; John C Wright speaks of "exterminating" her. Now, neither Vox Day or Wright are important in the grand scheme of things; time will pass and so will they. I may not live to see them die, but my kids will. And the ideas that they embody will, for the most part, die with them. The racists of the 1950s did not, by and large, learn better: they died. So will the Sad Puppies. They are on the wrong side of history, and no one will remember them when they're gone.

+Kara Purcell Walsh Nearly perfect timing. :-)

Now, if you put my music library in Drive, and give me a tag editor...

Tonight was the 4th time my wife and I have dined at Bistro 135, and we have been delighted every time. Earlier meals were more intimate (twice for Valentine's Day), this time we came with a larger group for her birthday. Every dish was remarkably good and distinctively unusual without being pompous, and the service was exceptional. (Every recommendation we got from our server Katelyn was perfectly chosen.) Great balance of pleasant music while still allowing easy conversation. My only regret was that there wasn't a truly exceptional, more expensive wine for the occasion; the wine list is very good (and affordable), but not great - it would be nice to have something to reach for when the occasion called for it. Highly recommended.

Great atmosphere, convenient location right on the canal in Fairport. I only wish they'd switch to something other than Finger Lakes Coffee.
