Funny Anti Mormonism Video

To get the jokes with this animation, you have to know a bit about Mormon mythology. In Mormonism, there is a star or planet (depending on interpretation) called Kolob. (You get 10 extra points if it occurs to you that Battlestar Galactica lifted that part of Mormon mythos for "Kobol.")

Either the planet Kolob or the planet revolving around that star is supposedly the home of the Mormon space alien deities, including Jesus and Lucifer. The head honcho god supposedly is near Kolob.

Am I Too Butch?

Girl, I gotta do something about this. According to the magic of Genderanalyzer:
We have strong indicators that is written by a man (93%).

Interestingly enough, they thought there was only an 83% chance that my serious blog, Godless Liberal Homo, was written by a man.

I'll have to scratch their eyes out. I might lose my mo card.

Fey Friends, which gets the hat tip for this one did much better. The Genderanalyzer "artificial intelligence" said that there was a 92% chance that blog was written by a woman.

Mormons Inspire Comedy

This is surrealistic, but hysterically funny.

Mormon Cult Delivers Prop 8 Message

Mormons have funky underwear. I love it when the Christers and the Morons battle it out.

Eucharist Desecration Video #13

The hat tip goes to In Scientia Veritas. I agree with him that the ducks are cute.

I haven't laughed this hard in weeks.

Eucharist desecration #5: Toilet is pretty good too.

I always thought that the symbolic canibalism of the Eucharist was funny, though disturbing. When I found out that Catholics are supposed to believe that the cookie is literally the body of Christ, I got a bit queasy.

Things Creationists Hate

Today's hat tip goes to Atheist Hussy for pointing me to the Skeptic Report's Things Creationists Hate.

Of course the skeptics get one thing wrong. Male nipples are not useless. They can be quite useful, if you know how to use them. Here are some other things that muck up the fundie world view.

Hockey Fans Boo the Hockey Mom

From The Gawker (Hat Tip to Michael Mahler's Ditherings):
When Sarah Palin showed up at the Wachovia Center last night to drop the ceremonial first puck at the Philadelphia Flyers home opener against the NY Rangers, she was treated to such a chorus of boos that the PA system had to be turned up full blast. But you can still see the fans giving her a frantic thumbs-down in the background. In Palin's defense, Philly fans boo everyone and everything. They really are terrible people. Oh, and the Rangers kicked the Flyers' asses last night—not that hockey is even a real sport in America. Video after the jump.

It's so funny how the author, Ian Spiegelman, felt the need to spin it a bit for the corrupt Alaska Governor.

Hot Guys Against the Iraq War - Part 3

Here are three more handsome men who are taking action to end the Iraqtastrophe. Just some examples from Flickr to act as a reminder that you are missing eye candy when you don't get off your butt and show up to anti-war protests.

This member of Iraq Veterans Against the War has sincerity and intensity that command one's attention even more than his good looks:

Hot Guys Against the Iraq War - Part 1

The main reason to protest the war in Iraq is to oppose the senseless waste of human lives and our nation's money. However, if you get off your butt and show up to protests, you get some pretty damn good eye candy as a reward.

Here are some shots from Flickr which should give you a good idea:

This Iraq War Vet is so done with short, nerdy, military haircuts.

I ran the first photo in my more serious blog in a posting with the understated title, The Bailout Is Bullshit. The hot guy on the right was part of a street theater group protesting the bailout. They had a cute name, "No Banker Left Behind."

I had some more pics, so I thought I would share. Hotties with social consciences are even hotter.

Our "banker" is grumpy in this shot. I guess he wasn't getting his bailout fast enough to suit him.

Book Review: I Hate Ann Coulter by Unanimous

The Strand Books Annex in Lower Manhattan is closing (boo hiss). Before they close that location, they are selling books really cheap (woo hoo). I managed to by I Hate Ann Coulter for $2.50 (woo hoo).

It's a short and incredibly bitchy book written by some guy about the Coultergeist (I called her that before I heard about Olbermann doing it, and I'm sure you thought of it too.). She is one mean, ugly monster, and that's just her personality.

A fun passage from the book:
She calls Pamella Harriman and Patricia Duff "whores," but she arrives at the Today show at 6:00 a.m. in last night's cocktail dress.

I've always wondered if Coulter changed clothes monthly or if she had an enormous closet filled with dresses that look like part of witch's costume for Halloween. Also, is her hair naturally urine blond, or does she get it done that way on purpose?

I love the section of the book on "Al Pieda," the two guys who threw pies at the evil one. The recipe for the "Tofu Terror Pie" (a tofu cream pie recipe) ends quite swimmingly:
Throw at Ann Coutler

I personally can't stand most cream pies and think all of them (except for the chocolate ones) should be thrown at Coulter, Hannity, etc.

The book quoted the incredible Coulterbeast saying something that probably gave a lot of people ideas:
I have to say I'm all for public flogging.

Let's try the flails out on you, Ann! Anyway, the book has one photo of Ann as a dominatrix that obviously was faked since the woman's body had visible breasts.

If you have had a rotten week like I did, you will especially appreciate the venom Unanimous spewed at the most venomous pundit of all. Here are some things I hate almost as much as Coulter.

- Velvet Elvis paintings
- Screaming children
- Lima Beans
- Traffic jams
- Unreality television
- Filling out tax forms

(Note: I thought about using the "hairy" label, but realized that would be a bad idea since I only want to see posts about hot hairy guys when I click on that.)

The only drawback is that it will make an avatar in its twenties or younger, regardless of your actual age. But, it's still fun.

Acting Vs. Indicating on As the World Turns

Soap opera's are a "guilty pleasure" (OK, really an embarrassing pleasure since I don't seem to have the guilt gene). That said, it is nice that one of them has somewhat realistic gay characters.

As the World Turns has an actual gay couple, Noah and Luke, who fans affectionately call "Nuke." If you work during the day and don't feel like recording it, you can watch the show online.

As you might expect, the paultry air time Nuke usually get is really annoying, though it is good that there is a queer couple on the show. I understood immediately why that bothered me. However, there was something else that annoyed me, something I didn't know how to explain.

One of the other things that actually sets ATWT from its competition is the quality of the acting. However, Proctor and Gamble, which owns the show (a true soap opera), has been messing with that too. Grayson McCouch, one of the two best actors, left the show because TPTB (the powers that be) decided to get hard assed in contract negotions. He's coming back (his character from the dead LOL), but the other best performer, Martha Byrne, was pushed out.

Sadly, her character was recast by the mediocre Noelle Beck. I didn't know how to explain what is wrong with Beck's performances until WBAI's theater reviewer mentioned the difference between indicating and acting. has a great article by Jean Schiffman on what these terms mean and what the difference is. Here's a basic explanation:
Indicating, writes Alex Golson in Acting Essentials (McGraw-Hill, 2001), is what you do when you "show the audience what you are thinking or feeling" -- that is, showing instead of thinking, feeling, and doing. He advises, "Don't ever show; just do and trust that your feelings and thoughts will be discovered by the audience." Chicago teacher Ed Hooks, in The Actor's Field Guide (Back Stage Books, 2004), describes indicating as "the acting equivalent of one of those old paint-by-number kits." He explains that you mustn't decide what the emotion ought to be in a certain moment in the scene and then try to come up with ways to act that emotion. Certainly that's a more subtle approach to indicating than scrunching your face or cocking your head, but it's indicating just the same, because it's not being in the moment.

Earlier in the article, they gave a more concrete example:
Yet indicating happens. In discussing sense memory in her book Acting for Film (Allworth Press, 2003), Cathy Haase gives an example of it: "If it is supposed to be a sunny environment, the actor acts like they are in the sun. They squint their eyes, lick their lips from thirst, and wipe away the sweat from their brow.... [They] use a gesture to indicate what is going on in the environment. These gestures are generally too stagy for the camera." In most cases, they're too stagy for the stage, too.

In writing, they often say that you should "show, not tell." I guess this is the analogous thing for acting.

Now, I undertand the difference between Byrne and Beck. Beck is indicating, while Byrne was acting.

Cloris Leachman Kicked Ass at the Bob Saget Roast

I was flipping channels last night, and the Comedy Central thing said something about a Bob Saget roast. The Pamela Anderson roast a while back was funny, so I was intrigued, but a question remained:

Who is Bob Saget?

Once I saw his picture, I vaguely remembered that he was associated with a tedious show called Full House as well as America's Least Funny Home Videos. Then, a thought crossed my mind.

Bog Saget isn't funny.

Apparently, a lot of the roasters agreed with that assessment. Anyway, the comic who stole the show was Cloris Leachman. Here are two clips from her routine which was absolutely hysterical.

She did a great interview after the show too.

If she wants to be a standup comic, she will do quite well.

Why Are So Many Hairdressers Such Incredible Asswipes?

I just had the worst experience in a hair salon that I can remember, though I've had plenty of bad ones before. The guy was someone who I had gone to a couple of times, and he did good jobs then. However, this time, without warning, he decided to hack away at my hair, giving me a disgusting short haircut. I noticed two inch pieces of hair on the smock while he was talking to me, and I realized just how badly he had screwed me over.

After he had massacred the right side, he started on the left side. He asked my if it was too short, knowing that it already was too late to stop unless I wanted a completely lopsided haircut.

I will never go back to that place again.

This was an extreme example of how shitty most hairdressers are. The typical pattern is that they will listen to you for the first couple of haircuts. Then, they will think they are free to do whatever amuses them with your hair after that. The incompetence and lack of professionalism most of them show is really pathetic.

I remember when I lived in DC. I finally found somebody really good. Then, 911 happened, and a lot of the conservative idiots there suddenly became too bigoted to patronize an Arab owned establishment. He eventually had to close the place. I found somebody else who was not as good, but wasn't bad and listened to people.

After moving to New York, I have yet found a place I could keep going to. Sooner or later, I have had to switch. Most of them because they stopped listening, but one guy just got sloppy after a while.

There are some things hairdressers need to realize.

Haircuts are for the people who live with them, not for you.

Haicutting is not something you should think of as a creative outlet. If you want to be creative, take an art class.

You don't know what is best for people. You don't take care of peoples' hair on a daily basis.

The worst thing about all of this is going to the gym. There are mirrors everywhere, and mirrors are really useful for having good form. But, I hate seeing the results of what some idiotic asswipe did to me over and over again.

There needs to be a warning service for bad hairdressers.

The Cursing Into Google Game 2

It's time to play the cursing into Google Game again.

1) Type a curse into Google.

2) Pick the first interesting result and blog it.

Today's curse: "shithead"

The first interesting thing that I saw was "Rules of Card Games: Shithead."

It's amusing enough that there is a card game called Shithead, but the fact that a page exists and is maintained which explains Shithead and the rules to Shithead is just too funny.

Making things even more amusing, Shithead is a "beating game." I was too lazy to find out what that is, but I definitely got the impression that a "beating game" isn't kinky. Oh well.

Feel free to play on your blogs (as if I could really stop you anyway).

A Fun Flicker Game

Hat tip to Strange Relationship.
the concept:
1. type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
2. using only the first page of results, pick one image.
3. copy and paste each of the url’s for the images into big huge lab’s mosaic maker to create a mosaic of the picture answers.

the questions:
1. what is your first name?
2. what is your favorite food? right now?
3. what high school did you go to?
4. what is your favorite color?
5. who is your celebrity crush?
6. what is your favorite drink?
7. what is your dream vacation?
8. what is your favorite dessert?
9. what do you want to be when you grow up?
10. what do you love most in life?
11. what is one word that describes you?
12. what is your flickr name?

some blogs are posting their answers to each other questions - i’d rather remain an enigma. i think the mosaic stands on it’s own.

I don't like the meme thing where you arbitrarily assign work to other people. However, I think this is a fun game to play. So, I did. I'm choosing to be all mysterious too.

Chocolate Sacrilege!

picture of a cross made of chocolate

Chocolate is incredibly yummy, and sacrilege is a lot of fun. What do you get when we combine the two?

Chocolate Sacrilege!

I got this from a candy store that caters to Catholics. Remembering from when I was a child and was still a Christian and a Protestant, I remember how Catholics liked all these naughty idolatrous things that were a no-no according to something silly like a Biblical perspective. These days, the Catholics in my neighborhood still carry an ugly statue of a saint around in a little parade, something that could result in hellfire and brimstone, according to some versions of Protestant mythology.

The more sacrilegious something is, the more forbidden and fun it is for my now that I'm a middle aged atheist. That makes some Catholic practices kind of fun to have around now.

By the way, here's some more Chocolate Sacrilege from the Wikimedia Commons chocolate page (a great source for chocolate eye candy in general).

You scored as Adrian Brody

Adrian Brody


Johnny Knoxville

Adrian Brody scores 100%, and I didn't even know who he was. In the pic above, I have to admit he looks a bit like an ex boyfriend from a dozen or so years ago, but he doesn't in his Wikipedia Bio.

I always did think that the runners up, Johnny Knoxville and Jude Law, were hot.

Hat tip to the notorious J*O*E who got the ewwwwwww worthy Donald Trump. I should note that I had to play with the HTML to get the layout to look even tolerable.


Jason Giambi and the Golden Thong

I know, I know, baseball is a boring sport, almost as boring as soccer. But, you have to admit the uniforms really show off bis and butts.

Photo Credit: Wikipedia User Googie man (distributed under the GNU Free Documentation license, on Wikipedia Commons)

I would love to see this guy in a thong. Too bad he wears his baseball uniform with it. The story from

Jason Giambi has a deep, dark secret. Deeper than his compulsion to sleep on the side of the bed nearest the door, and darker than his dream of growing up to be a heavy-metal musician.

The deepest, darkest secret harbored by the New York Yankees first baseman is that whenever he is in a prolonged hitting funk, he wears a gold lamé, tiger-stripe thong under his uniform. "I only put it on when I'm desperate to get out of a big slump," he confides.

Over Giambi's checkered career in the Bronx, he has left the "golden thong" in the lockers of slumping teammates Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Johnny Damon, Robin Ventura, and Robinson Cano. "All of them wore it and got hits," he reports. "The thong works every time." has some cute pics of Giambi in their blog posting.
