Cross Wire

And so we find ourselves with one foot on the dock and one on the boat.

On one hand we are examining Modernism with it’s emotional treatment of color and form, on the otre’ Regionalism’s pushback of the very same Modernism through subject and forced perspective.  One is simplified and thought provoking; the other fantastic and nostalgic.  One is a vibrant, healthy, and a continuing branch of contemporary art; the other a waypoint in art history.

“What does this have to do with the price of eggs, Chumpo?”

Absolutely nothing.

The Regionalists have been accused of hating the modern world while The Modernists likewise of cheating the craft and ignoring their subjects.  Of course that is all bullshit and a coffee house row.  The world is a better place with both schools in it and all benefit.  I will concede that the two do not hang well together and therefore must be exhibited separately.

 

And so we say goodby to American Regionalism.  It has been a pleasant journey together.  Lo, many a stone has been left unturned.  If the experience moves you in that direction there is a wonderful world of Regionalists (also known as Magic Realists) to be explored, including not only painters but sculptors as well.  Very likely your Statehouse and Capitol have adornments, murals, and permanent collections directly connected to a Regionalist (hence the name).

 

Next week we will briefly explore the impact of Modernism in advertising and then begin our one year retrospective.

(One Year?!!)

 

Thanks for the good times.

 

All Hail.

  1. True fact: success as an artist keeps one from becoming a genocidal lunatic.

  2. The last painting by Oscar Bluemner was inspired by butts.

    It’s a veritable Rorschach Test to find the butts.

  3. Find the penny.

  4. True fact: success as an artist keeps one from becoming a genocidal lunatic.

    What if you want to succeed at genocidal lunacy? What hobbies should you pick up?

  5. No, thank you, Chumpo!

    I enjoyed looking at both sets.

  6. So what’s everyone making for dinner?

  7. wakey wakkey

  8. This is an interesting idea

    http://www.redstate.com/streiff/2016/04/16/donald-trump-looking-exit-strategy-long-troll-gop/

    It’s based on pure speculation however. Of all the possibilities floated so far it seems like one that would make everyone but Trump’s most ardent supporters happy.

  9. I think that’s a bit of wishful thinking. People with giant egos want to win. It defines them.

  10. At this point, what does it matter? We’re fucked.

  11. I just want Hillary to lose. Beyond that I don’t care.

  12. Wife has an interview this morning for an associate creative director job at Quicken Loans. If she gets it and it’s enough money, I’m taking a few years off to be daddyfarmerguy.

  13. At this point I’m almost hoping for Biden/Lieawatha vs Ryan/Kasich.

  14. That next-to-last painting of the farm landscape by Cox looks like something done in the 30s for the Soil Conservation Service as a WPA project. Looks like a bunch of red Georgia clay.
    I’ve seen erosion that bad, but not in a long time.
    Thanks Chumpo.

  15. What if you want to succeed at genocidal lunacy? What hobbies should you pick up?

    Politics

  16. Either way, I’m at home. Can’t drag myself to the polls this time. Guess I’ll just watch.

  17. I like the Cox paintings (SYWM). That guy grew up on a farm.

  18. CT has 3 million residents and 28 delegates.

    PA has 13 million residents and 17 delegates.

    WTF?

  19. I don’t see many butts in Cox paintings

  20. PA has more than 17.

  21. There’s 74.

  22. It’s a good result of the information age. People are starting to understand that they’ve never really had a democracy.

    Fear not, we’ll screw it up though.

  23. Here we go! Who wants to buy Puerto Rico’s votes?

    http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/lin-manuel-miranda-hamilton-bail-out-puerto-rico/2016/04/25/id/725684/

  24. My bro does well with the farming. Good luck, leon!

  25. Yeah, Penn has 74 delegates. The 17 is the number of statewide, bound delegates.

    Penn also awards 3 delegates per Congressional District.

  26. Sorry, 71 delegates for Penn, not 74.

  27. What if you want to succeed at genocidal lunacy? What hobbies should you pick up?

    Crossfit

  28. Is there an important soccer update I need to know about?

    I bet Obama thinks about playing soccer while watching TV.

  29. What if you want to succeed at genocidal lunacy? What hobbies should you pick up?

    Islam. They seem to have the market cornered

  30. TT, it used to be the atheists had the corner on mass homicide…

  31. P90X Plyometrics, done and done.

  32. What if you want to succeed at genocidal lunacy? What hobbies should you pick up?

    German.

  33. Love the picture of Queen Elizabeth changing a tire in WW2:

    http://sweasel.com/archives/16209

    (from AOS). Last head of state to wear the uniform of her country in WW2.

    Anyone know what her political leanings are? Was she a fan of Thatcher?

    Riding buses while shooting Jaeger.

    Try to keep up!

  37. *closes bus door*
    “Next stop, Tijuana! Pass the Jager, please.”

  38. It’s called a Short Shot.

    GND gave it a nickname? How cute.

  39. What song did we sing on the bus?

    Ah ferget.

    I’m going to be really really disappointed in all of you if you didn’t sing The Wheels on the Bus.

  42. John rogers cocks.

  43. Well, not anymore. He daid.

  44. We did not sing that gay song (maybe we did) we sang some kick ass metal song and flipped off the squares.

  45. MJ, tell us about your wedding plans – where, when, how many people, how many bullwhips, will there be a band, what will the food be, what are you wearing????????

  46. “What song did we sing on the bus?”

    Heels on the hussy go round and round…?

  47. This one, Chumpo.

    http://is.gd/mskeK3

  48. This blog is starting to resemble PBS during fundraising week. Somebody post a Joan Baes concert on YouTube.

  49. Oh YEAH!!!

    That was badass.

  50. I was on Verrazano bridge and barely 25 feet away when cops nabbed this poor fellow. I saw it happen.
    I was pretty shaken up, what with Rosetta and all that…

    http://www.brooklyndaily.com/stories/2016/18/br-verrazano-bridge-attempted-suicide-bk-2016-04-29-bk.html

  51. Scott is correct, that was so much fun.

    Roamy has a nice voice.

  52. Chumpster, I have added Oscar Bluemmer to the list of people whose art might end up on my walls.

  53. Tush is gonna get some bloomers.

    I like it.

  54. MJ, tell us about your wedding plans – where, when, how many people, how many bullwhips, will there be a band, what will the food be, what are you wearing????????
    ——————————–
    Saturday, 5pm.
    I think we have about 30 people coming to Charlotte.
    4.8 bullwhips.
    No band, but we’re having some sort of fancy violin thingy for a little bit.
    We hired a personal chef. The menu is tapas style:

    Slider Trio
    Mini pimento cheese and charred onion with guacamole on Rye Bread, grilled. **

    I’m wearing a grey suit and high heels.

  55. Feeding your guests ramen noodles? Seems kinda cheap to me.

  56. Now the important question: Open Bar?

  57. Cooler full of PBR.

  58. Every table has a customized bottle of Boone’s Farm with a special label just for the event.

  59. Every table has a customized bottle of Boone’s Farm with a special label just for the event.

    That shit better be strawberry.

  60. That’s very good, TusharD.
    Neither had I seen much of his work before reserching this weeks post.

  61. Sounds lovely. Plus you’ll have all day to get shitfaced

  62. Awesome menu, MJ.

  63. Will the violin player be playing Foggy Mountain Breakdown?

  64. “…with high heels.”

    Dick! I got coffee on my shirt!!!

  65. Hey chumpo, do you have any hints on getting clearer beer? Mine has been kinda hazy.

    I’ve heard of cold crashing (not an option, don’t have an extra fridge right now) and Irish Moss. Ever use them?

  66. MJ’s guests will be eating like Bernie going to visit the Pope.

  67. Have you tried filtering it through your kidneys?

  68. I got a big galvanized bucket that we’re filling with ice, beer from around charlotte, and wine.

    Help yourself!

  69. A proper wedding involved meat roasting on spits, a couple barrels of beer, wine and mead, and a spear-throwing competition for the rights to the bridesmaids.

  70. Yeah, Jay. There’s a natural additive that grabs the longer protiens and takes them down.

    Stand by.

  71. Comment by Herr Morgenholz on April 26, 2016 12:24 pm

    Have you tried filtering it through your kidneys?

    Only if he’s making Miller Light.

  72. Isinglass

  73. Hey Chumpo, is that the shit made from dried jellyfish?

  74. This.

    http://tinyurl.com/z8hjy8m

  75. We use the Irish Moss as well

  76. Hotspurs Mom has Irish Moss if’n ye need some.

  77. Herr, I hope so.

  78. I bet a Huma Abedin pubic hair ball would work just as good.

  79. Chumpo, that link works about as good as Mare’s brain after half a box of chardonnay.

  80. Huma’s young enough that she probably hasn’t had hair down there since high school.

  81. My buddy sugested this method. I guess this is what we use now mor that the enzime.

    http://tinyurl.com/hsemslr

  82. That link is so stupid it shares a toothbrush w Tushar

  83. Neither do we cold crash. The article says that it worx bettah but like you we dont have the third fridge. Just a third ball.

  84. Isinglass

    Thanks Hotspur, that’s one I hadn’t seen. Also the gelatin, but I think that’s for cold beer. Plus I don’t force carbonate, so I don’t think gelatin will be an option.

    Thanks chumpo, too!

    And yes, I’ve been filtering with the kidneys for some time, now. Doesn’t taste the same, though.

  85. Brewing is cool.

    We really started doing well when we got an inline chiller and an electric pump

  86. Mrs. Carlos Danger’s pubic hair has filtered some ugly shit in her time.

  87. This is why she will make a cracker-jack White House chief of staff.

    Staff.

    YMMV.

  88. I think I’ll regret not doing this for the Kolsch. It’s a lot lighter than my other 2 brews, and will show the haze.

  89. We should have a meet up where you all bring your beer.

    *my porch is getting redone …

    just saying.

  90. If you let it sit long enough it’ll clear up.

  91. Do a dry porter. They are ez and very rewarding.

  92. I see now that it’s done after fermentation, so the Kolsch will be clear! Gelatin it is!

  93. I want to do a vanilla porter. Leine’s had a tasty one a while back.

  94. I do like the idea of using Isinglass, because it will piss off vegans, and make them not like my beer.

  95. Vanilla Porter was one of Prince’s backup singers.

  96. I’d bet my last dollar that Ms Abedin doesn’t have any fur on her falafel.

  97. It’s hard to mess up a porter. Do you order a grain bill or do you assemble it yourself?

    We grab ours from the brew mart and then let it sit on dried coconut and vanilla beans. It worx like a bomb.
    6.0 ABV

  98. Is furry falafel halal?

  99. Persian Carpet

  100. Do not put Persian Carpet in your brew

  101. Fur burger is kosher as long as you don’t add dick cheese.

  102. What a set of rug salesmen we have here.

  103. Do not put Persian Carpet in your brew

    Put your brew in Persian Carpet!

  104. A prize for anyone who can spot Daffy Duck in today’s art.

  105. Dick Cheese, he’s Dick Butt’s neighbor.

  106. Daffy duck
    Third one from the bottom

    Are you still ill?

  107. I’m sorta guessing Hillary spends most of her days now marking up a price list of state secrets. She’s planning a big sale in 2017.

  108. November 2008 marked the death of the republic. 2017 will be the estate sale.

  109. Getting better, thanks. Today was the first day Mt. Phlegm didn’t erupt. I am grateful for the little things. Now I can get a haircut… my hair hasn’t been this long and shaggy since high school. It’s a good look for me.

  110. Hillary was named after Sir Edmund who ascended Mt. Phlegm.

  111. I’ve just been doing extracts, so far. Haven’t made a mash tun yet. But that’s on the list. It will certainly get cheaper then. I have done partial mash though, with all three brews. Wheat was more extensive.

    Theres a local brew shop that I get stuff from. Cheaper than Amazon! Plus his stuff is pretty fresh, and he grinds it right there.

  112. >>Mr Chumpo on April 26, 2016 at 12:16 pm
    >>That’s very good, TusharD.
    >>Neither had I seen much of his work before >>researching this weeks post.

    I dropped the D from my online name years ago, but it seems people haven’t forgotten.

    I held on to the D for a while, but realized that it sounds gay, so I dropped the D

  113. Tushar, droppin D’s like Hillary drops G’s.

  114. Tushar also drops links, but use them with caution

  115. Nice sausage fest ya got going here….

  116. Looks like I need to edumacate you old geezers.

    Youngsters today use D as a shortform for dick.

    Reread my comments with that in mind.

  117. George Orwell linked on some links I posted that scared the maggots out of his coffin

  118. I scare the maggots out of my coffin myself, thank you very much.

  119. Makes me snicker every time I tell a mom that her kid needs some D

  120. Neighbor Bob is doing well after the amputation.

  121. AK or BK?

    Good to hear he’s doing well either way.

  122. Song for Paulitics.

  123. Have you seen Steven Crowder go off on some SJWs yet? Worth a laugh, even though they probably didn’t learn anything.

  124. Well, I guess I know what other classes I was missing when I was taking the Poli Sci, Lit, and Russian courses when I was in college.

  125. Couldn’t restrain myself

    https://michaelscomments.wordpress.com/2016/04/26/mothers-day-fashion/#comment-269944

  126. All I got out of today’s thread is that Tushar willingly chopped off his D.

  127. MJ, that’s a kick ass menu. I see you are serving beer, are you going to serve wine? Asking for a friend.

    Also, did I miss your house pics?

  128. Thanks for that last link Jay. Epic.

  129. AK. Nice clean sutures on the stump.

  130. Love that link, Jay.

    And every word true.

  131. Did you call him “stumpy”?

  132. I call him Bob.

    Because he’d shoot me if I called him Stumpy.

  133. Sounds like a good man.

  134. That’s beautiful, Car in. England should make it its national anthem with lyrics like these:

    England is mine, it owes me a living
    But ask me why, and I’ll spit in your eye

  135. your not even trying, Leon. There’s loads of manchix hidden upstream.

  136. I prefer the Bluemner. Not a fan of Commie Art.

  137. If you throw him in a pool, he’s Bob.

  138. “Couldn’t restrain myself”

    no worries, i backed you up

  139. Oscar Bluemner’s middle name is Florianus.

    Do not try to visualize it.

  140. Dan is watching Pitch Perfect 2. KMN (Kill Me Now)

  141. What if it’s really really good Commie Art?

  142. If you hang him on the wall, he’s Art.

  143. Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow need to spanked, repeatedly.

  144. Not even then, Chumpo!!! I H8 Eyebrows’ hubby too!!

  145. Mikhail Angelo

  146. Leonid De Vinci?

  147. Anyone else a little disappointed that we were gypped on getting an egg price update in this post?

  148. Pavel Picasso?

  149. These are Almost Great Artists of The Iron Curtain.

    You are really missing out here.

  150. Georgia O’keeffe?

  151. Really? You’re doing this when my brain is fried? I had to set an 8ft end, half a table, and 16ft of inline without any layouts. I H8 days where I have to think.

  152. Oso, just dump all the books on the table and walk away.

  153. “Anyone else a little disappointed that we were gypped on getting an egg price update in this post?”

    3 dolla a doz – just down the road…

    fresh brown ones

    they ship for a nominal fee

  154. if’n teh painting is at the front door

  155. Kandinsky left Russia before The Glorious Revolution.

    Can he stay at the party? He’s a nice man.

    Give Wasilly a hall pass

  156. Thanks Jam! Representin’ the H — Deuce!!!

  157. “Bluemner v Blumpkin”

    ?

    questions d’art

  158. Leon said a while back that eggs at the store are three years old before they hit the shelf. I’m a bit grossed out by eggs now.

  159. CoAl, I’m up 40K to LY. I’m a wee bit OCD. I wish I could run my book area with benign neglect like most Clubs. We have 100% return on all books. Most Clubs don’t even stock their books, because the GMs know it is all credited. My GM is finally onboard with me keeping 0 product on the steel. He takes credit for having best sales in the region.

  160. Almost got crushed by about 6 tons steel today. A sphincter puckering moment.

    Frau woulda been worth millions.

  161. Not a fan of public art. I H8 median beautification more than public art. I always put a price tag on everything. Fucking Mayor Marty went to PHX back in the day, and loved all the freeway and median beautification. When you drive through I40 in ABQ, look at all our $$$ we spent on shit.

  162. WTF Herr?

  163. Button on the crane stuck. We were moving the top half of a big die onto some sawhorses and it just kept going. Slammed into the bottom half beside it. I got outsa way purty quicklike.

  164. They are not years old.

    They have to be put in a carton within 30 days, and sold within 30 days after that.

    Before the expiration date there is a number between 1-365, that’s the day the carton was packed.

    We bought eggs today. The carton was filled April 5.

  165. Big Egg

  166. Potatoes can be very old at time of purchase. Kinda like Your Mom.

  167. Because nothing says “farm fresh” like two month old eggs.

  168. Glad you’re ok, Herr. Prayers 🙏🏻

  169. Im fine. Its my Hanes that suffered most.

  170. Beans. We still make fun of my mom over old beans.

  171. COO. I get really tired of people bitching about $$$ Produce and Country of Origin.

  172. How old of a bean we talking here? Dried? I’ve got a bag of dried Jacob’s Cattle Beans in the pantry about 6 years old.

  173. Nothing says “old eggs” like your mom.

  174. Oso, I hate the medians that go on for a mile or two and don’t allow you to left turn or U-turn.

  175. Nothing says”bag of old dried beans” than your mom.

  176. Did I write 3 years?!!!
    .
    .
    I think he said eggs are 30 years old before they go on the shelf.
    Something like that.

  177. I cancelled my Target card today. They are doubling down on the stupid.

  178. Fresh pintos have a pink skin and don’t take as long to cook. I’m a bad Messican. I H8 beans and I can’t taste test how fresh a fucking bean is. Bagged beans are last year. Bin or barrel are fresh.

  179. Your mom was so worn out she was only 23 when she was put on the shelf.

  180. CoAl, I H8 the medians that require $150,000 drip irrigation, scenic rocks, and trees.

  181. We hired a personal chef. The menu is tapas style:

  182. Roamy, I have stories!!!

  183. 3 centuries. Minimum.

  184. Tapas? Is either GND or MJ Spanish? Appropriating culture in 2016 NC.

  185. >>the medians that require $150,000 drip irrigation, scenic rocks, and trees.

    Around here they’re called “government property”. Lush green grass in August when my yard looks like a sand trap.

  186. MJ, if you want to save some money, the strip club on the edge of town usually lays out a decent buffet.

  187. And their salad bar is impressive too!

    *ahem*

    I heard.

  188. Herr, I’m just so glad that my tax $$$ are going for such worthwhile projects. Add in the public $$$ for the arts and I’m like SQUUEEEE/s

  189. Oso, it’s a funny thing, those municipalities that don’t invest in the details, medians, curbs, sidewalks, landscaping, etc., distinguish themselves as, well, ahhhh dumps. I marvel at the details where I live and it makes me happy to see beautiful surroundings. Trust me, the details matter.

    Now on the other hand the law where a % of building funds must go into exterior art is bullshit. Most is crappy, some is okay.

  190. Plus the eggs are never old!

  191. KMN (Kill Me Now)

    Heh. It’s funny that this is the only acronym she wants to MAKE SURE IS UNDERSTOOD.

    This is a cry for help. An O-SOS if you will.

  192. SOS-OSO

  193. Ps we have no state income tax and reasonable property taxes

  194. RL friend is a server at a strip club. Food specials are supposed to be awesome. I wouldn’t know. I get irritated when Dan goes to Hooters. I don’t think breastaraunts should be allowed to have unfair hiring practices. Tilted Kilt hires male servers and bartenders. Only breastaraunt I’ll go to.

  195. Tapas? Is either GND or MJ Spanish?

    MJ’s Mom is greek.

  196. I H88 farm fresh eggs.

    I also H88 lush green grass.

    AND I H888 pink skined beans!!!

  197. The problem with eating at the strip bar is that most of the women have been battered.

    I prefer to eat mine plain.

  198. Although in theory I’m against property tax. You NEVER own your property.

  199. Mare, you so white! LOL

  200. Tapas. Spain

  201. Never eat the food at the strip club.

    Don’t order the fish at the steak house.

  202. Tapas? Is either GND or MJ Spanish?

    MJ’s Mom is greek.

    Her beard is more luxurious than his!

  203. Yes I am. I hate to go into third world neighborhoods 5 minutes from my house. Our parks and bike trails rock here. Did a 30 mile ride on Sunday.

  204. There’s a vegan strip club in Portland. I believe that there’s also one place that started out life as a high-end steak house until the owners realized that they could make more money with titties. But they kept on the kitchen staff so the food is still very good.

    Denver has the same thing, IIRC.

  205. A vegan…strip. Club.

    I don’t want to live in this world anymore.

  206. A vegan titty bar?

    No BBF models there I’d bet.

  207. The Internet and skanky women, why are strip clubs a thing?

  208. Now taking the main stage: Pasty! and Daddy Issues!

  209. Pupster, their strippers even unionized!

    A vegan titty bar?

    No BBF models there I’d bet.

    Yeah, I’m not so sure about that. I’ve heard stories…

  210. You could put all the breasts in a vegan strip club together and the baby would still starve.

  211. Mare,

    Because men are stupid and like to look at tits.

  212. Mare, I wish I could avoid the 3rd World areas. The 3 Medians by my Condo cost $350,000. The city only completed 1.

  213. Alex misspelled “pigs”

    *points and laughs*

  214. Oso, I was aggravated enough at the gender-neutral toys, but letting men into women’s dressing rooms was too much.

  215. Roamy, I left 4 years ago. That was already policy. What is new, is allowing men dressed as men, into the womens restroom. We used to have mirror upskirts, now…phone upskirts will be a thing. Nasty. I love Member retail. No fitting rooms

  216. I was still at Target when we just had fitting rooms. Lots of sex. We couldn’t call cops, until a manager would call. Cops are on CPT. I don’t even care anymore. Dan and I feel blessed with my infertility.

  217. Kasich is fucking Cruz in IN. I’ll be fucking Kasich in NM. Gary in NOV.

  218. Strange. I just can’t see myself screwing in a fitting room.

    Police cruiser? Library? Sure.

    But a fitting room?

  219. ‘Sup, homos?

  220. There’s nothing more fun than going into a changing room to clean it out and finding a used condom. Nothing.

  221. Herr, people are gross.

  222. CoAl, used condoms, people shitting on clothing, bloody clothes, guys jacking on underpants… I love not having Fitting Rooms.

  223. Cops are on CPT.

    What is CPT?

  224. There’s nothing more fun than going into a changing room to clean it out and finding a used condom. Nothing.

    Challenge Accepted

  225. Oso, I was glad that I almost never had to clean women’s fitting rooms. Horror stories.

  226. *slides a drink down the bar to Andy*

  227. I guess walking in to find a naked MILF would be more fun… but I don’t know for sure until it actually happens.

  228. Colored People Time. I usually don’t consider the phrase…RAYCISS. Hill and DeBlasio thought a CPT joke was funny and totes not rayciss

  229. Well this all sounds as pleasant as using a blacklight on the hotel sheets.

  230. Beasn had toenails in her hotel room carpet

  231. Nothing filthier than a female restroom in a border town.

  232. Target credit card person “I’m sorry you don’t feel inclusive.”

    Me “I’m sorry I don’t feel safe in your bathroom.”

  233. Holy shit, they actually said that to you Roamy?!

  234. I dropped my Red Card in 2011. I missed a payment in 2011 due to Sheridan’s funeral. I told the Visa rep to go fuck themself and closed the card. I have not shopped Target since I no longer got the discount.

  235. Cyn, Target is doubling down on the diversity

  236. http://is.gd/bWnC9e

  237. Bernie and Hillary are virtually tied with 10% of the vote in.

    Bernie! Bernie! Bernie!

  238. “BE DIVERSE GODDAMMIT!!!” ~ Target, re 0.0000000000001% of the population.

  239. Our local Costco just started accepting SNAP. Best company EVER just sucked it up and opened their membership to the Hoi Polloi. Fuck them.

  240. Cyn, yes, she was kind of angry at me. I would expect she’d been getting cancellations for the last few days. I was polite, though.

  241. TV talking head says she saved today’s newspaper from 30 years ago about Chernobyl. She is full of shit, unless she dug it out of the garbage/recycle bin. Soviet Union didn’t fess up until radiation alarms went off in Sweden.

  242. Last week when Paula was away I was hungry and not in the mood to cook so I stopped at the corner store for a coffee and breakfast sandwich. They were sold out (it was nearly 1100) so I opted for a black bean burrito which was all good except for the neon green sticker on the wrapper proclaiming it was EBT ELIGIBLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  243. Bernie is opening up a lead!

    Hillary campaign will be ordering bags of absentee ballots from Bridgeport soon.

  244. April 29th newspaper, I can believe. I was taking Introduction to Nuclear Engineering that quarter. It made for some interesting class discussions.

    Also interesting is the difference between Chernobyl and Fukushima. Prompt evacuation and iodine supplements probably saved a lot of lives and heartache.

  245. I want to boycott Target. Wife won’t go along with it.

    Next time she drags me there I’m going straight to the Lady’s room to pee.

  246. http://is.gd/ZOoO3o

  247. I have not been in a Target since 2012. Without the discount, it isn’t worth it. They fucked me on my pension. They fucked me on my discount. Target gets to fly under the SJW radar when it comes to the SJW FU

  248. Leon, just jack it on a thong/bra set. Target is used to jacking it

  249. Leon, just jack it on a thong/bra set. Target is used to jacking it

    Well. That was an interesting time to pull up the comments.

  250. OMG Roamy is keeping it real, and we’re giving her props on her bus riding voice.

  251. Uh huh.

  252. Heh, that was a lot of fun, singing Metallica and no one telling me to shush.

  253. So the wife and I flipped on NatGeoWild. It’s “Top 20 Animals That Can Kill You”.

    Wife just declared, “Well I’m gonna have fucking nightmares. I may never sleep again.”

  254. Leon, just jack it on a thong/bra set. Target is used to jacking it

    Only a complete moron leaves DNA evidence. Plus I’m still trying to quit that. Also that’s fucking creepy.

  255. A headhunter just tried to get me to apply for a job at Government Motors.

  256. *bings for polite version of “aw Hell no!”*

  257. “I appreciate the kind and generous offer, but at this time I feel I really need to stay on my current career track.”

  258. Bcoch, boycotting interleague play?

  259. I’m not a fan of inter league. Well, that’s not completely accurate. I’m not a fan of the frequency with which they do it. Takes the novelty right out of it.

  260. bcoch isn’t feeling inclusive.

  261. >>Challenge Accepted

    *slides Target ad down the bar to Cyn*

  262. I’m down right exclusive.

  263. I went with the LinkedIn default of “Thanks for thinking of me, but I am not interested at this time.”

  264. Leon, you spelled “welfare whore” wrong.

    Other than that, give yourself a solid B+.

  265. Brent,
    How’s the little one doing?
    Still a sickie?
    How is her daddy doing?
    Hope you are both getting over the crud…
    !!!

  266. Ha h. Waste of a day doing busywork.

    Two girls quit the varsity soccer team today due to the coach. The boys team is approaching the AD tomorrow and telling him if he coaches the boys in the fall they will form an academy team and play elsewhere.

  267. >>>I went with the LinkedIn default of “Thanks for thinking of me, but I am not interested at this time.”

    When I buy LinkedIn Im gonna add a GFY button.. Its mostly for people that want me in their network, but versatility is good too.

  268. I got a hit from Apple directly last month, not even a headhunter. I’m not the least important guy on F*rd’s program, but I’m close, and it can’t just be me they’re going after. Eventually, one of the team is going to crack and walk out with the whole project in his or her pocket for the promise of a nice gig near the beach where “Winter” is a dark sky and a cool breeze.

    There’ll be lawsuits and threats but in the end it’ll amount to nothing. Any competitive advantage will be gone in a blink.

    It won’t be me because I stay bought and I want out of the industry anyhow, but it will be someone.

  269. Chrispy, thanks for asking. We’re both doing “ok”. She went back to school and I went in to work today. We’re both at that stage of “too good to stay home, pretty crappy to be at work”.

    I’ve got a handful of pills. I think the main purpose of which is to keep me stoned most of the day.

  270. Our whole house has been sick too. I got it last, spent most of the day tanked up on sudafed.

    I gotta get some mormon tea seeds.

  271. Car in, your girl really would be better off going to the boys team.

  272. I wish it had been that, Leon. The youngest got the stomach bug with the puking. I also got the stomach bug…..but not with the puking.

  273. Your chickens are making you sick.

  274. I don’t have chickens at the moment, Scott. Probably buying chicks this weekend.

  275. How did Mrs. Caruthers’ interview go?

  276. “What do we want?”
    “DEEP FRIED BUTTER”
    “When do we want it?”
    “NOW!”

    This is just one of the reasons I love Cyn.

  278. She said it went well, but she isn’t sure the money will be enough to cover the loss of my salary. There’s another interview after they look at her portfolio.

  279. The other being your barely suppressed lesbianism?

  280. I know there are 350,000,000 people in this country, however, the fact that more than one would have sexual relations with themselves in a Target makes me want to check out, now.

  281. Fitting rooms are nasty. Serial

  282. I worked with a chronic masturbator at Target. He was gross

  283. I think for a lot of them it’s the thrill of getting caught that’s why they do it.

  284. Someone needs to kick Alex’s ass, but soft like, like he likes it. Not hard, but soft.

    I don’t know what I’m saying.

  285. I saw Chronic Masturbator at the Ice House back in ’02.

    I don’t remember who the band was that night.

  286. He got caught yanking it in a Target bathroom. Not where he worked. Lost his job and gained an entry on the Sexual Predator list.

  287. Why are so many people so effed up?

  288. I had sex in a bathroom for thrills back in the day.

  289. Lost his job and gained an entry on the Sexual Predator list.

    The latter part I have a problem with. Unless he was exposing himself to other people or worse. But jerking off in a bathroom stall? No.

  290. My guy at the time was all about the gotcha potential. I grew up

  291. CoAl, kids were exposed. They complained. I guess jacking it in a stall isn’t totes protected.

  292. Gross

  293. Almost everyone has lost their mind.

  294. The world has become one giant Skinner Box, and the Food/Clothing/Shelter are free. Madness is inevitable.

  295. I’m beginning to think that we are the anomalies anymore.

  296. No, I’m crazy too, just managing it well.

  297. When the crazy folks are looking around going “Ok this shit is getting out of hand”, we might have a problem.

  298. Violence is coming. The world is spiraling into madness and that will only lead to violence on a massive scale.

  299. Well, if that’s true…it’s been nice knowing you all.

  300. The question is whether Archduke Ferdinand has already been assassinated and we aren’t aware of it, or if the trigger event is yet to come.

  301. It’s a maaaaaadhouuuuuuse!!!

  302. If youre American when you go into the fitting room.

    And you’re Asian when you come out of the fitting room.

    What are you while youre in the fitting room?

  303. Just remember, the money is buried under the big W.

  304. Turning Japanese?

  305. European, and Sheboingan, and Strokistani

  306. HA! Strokistani reminded me of this…

    https://youtu.be/YgU0YytQVbs

  307. AhahahahahahsgsgsggddhhahahahHh

    I havnt seen that in a loooong time.

    Thanx Hots!!

  308. It’s the ultimate pick-me-up funny flick.

  309. That’s right, pleased to meet you
    I still won’t tell you my name
    Don’t you believe in mystery
    Don’t you wanna derp my game
