[ profile] do_not_lick reminded me of a favorite Internet book reviewer, and linked me to two of his critical pieces I had not seen.
  1. Moby-Dick "The plot could be wholly told in about 15 pages, none ommitted. The rest is philosophy and whale-encyclopedia."

  2. Mrs. Dalloway "Just WTF is this book about ? Making fun of the London "drawing rooms" society of 100 years ago ? M...kay, whatever."

  3. The Odyssey "The style is heavy, but there's no other way out, I guess. They spake (hehe...) this way back then..."

Caption of the day and/or News QOTD of the day from the Orange County Register:

"Craig Gross, founder of XXX, next to a stack of "Jesus loves a porn star" Bibles that his staff handed out at the AVN Adult Expo in Los Vegas in January. This weekend, Gross is coming to Huntington Beach for one of the organization's signature events: Porn and Pancakes."

At least they have pancakes.

I for one would pay good money to watch Ms. Ray lead a UFO death cult into oblivion.

1. Do not describe produce as brown. There is a huge library of Lands' End colors for this exact purpose. The tomatoes themselves look fine. You could get away with calling them russet, or golden, or even tawny. Start over. Also: ew.

2. This is a university. It is, in fact, a university with a huge Asian and Asian-American presence. And this university is in a city with a large Chinese-American population; they're a dominant presence. Using ching-chong-chinaman "Confucius Say" jokes on a package of fortune cookies isn't just stupid or insensitive. It's suicidal.

With you, I own the whole world; without you, I have nothing! That's the exact word I want to tell my future lover. I'm still one of the millions of thousands of lonely military singles!!! I strongly believe that God can bring you to my side.

[ profile] vanmojo alerted me to something very special about this year's Rose Parade. For those outside the US, the Rose Parade is a huge New Year's Day event connected with the Rose Bowl college football game. Corporations make giant floats, high school bands march, and it goes on forever.

Because 2007 will be the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, George Lucas will be the grand marshal. And also because of this, the 501st Legion will be marching in the parade.

charity stormtroopersHaving a lot of Star Wars stuff in the parade sounds cool. Maybe some of the actors from the original movie, or a bunch of wookies. But no. This will be a large gathering of the Imperial Stormtroopers marching by in review.

The 501st has a long and hilarious history of charity appearances, each of which is more like an Onion article than the others. And they're just costumed nerds, I know.

So I guess it's perfectly fine to have the brutal, oppressive cannon fodder minions of the dark Empire marching proudly in our parade. You know, the ones who kill and burn Luke's family at the beginning of the original movie. And it's totally cool also to have a group named after the Nazi murderers who slaughtered millions of innocents in a horrific war of aggression, carrying out the most notorious genocide in the history of mankind. In fact, it should be awesome!

No wait, it's that other thing: shockingly ignorant and offensive!

Someone please tell me this is a long drawn-out prank by Mel Brooks. Please.

Edit:Lucas' extensive ripoffs from The Triumph of the Will just aren't helping here either. Pasadena is the new Nuremberg.
